  1. More than a ripped-from-the- headlines drug drama, Maria Full of Grace is like a horror movie made real.
  2. So terrifically entertaining, it would be a shame if it didn't inspire a companion piece on New York.
  3. The film is less violent and bloody than much of the director's work, but the absurdity level is sky high. Takashi Miike is at the top of his game, loving every minute of his surreal visit to the twilight zone.
  4. Confirms Leigh's reputation as one of the world's master filmmakers - and showcases Staunton as one of its great actresses.
  5. Iraqi-Kurdish director-writer Hiner Saleem is in no hurry to tell the story, and viewers drawn in by the warm-hearted tale and charmingly eccentric characters will be in no hurry for the closing credits.
  6. Anderson gives The Machinist a sickly noirish look that contributes to the creeping horror - but it's the emaciated Bale's spectral presence that leaves the imprint.
  7. Ray
    Contains large helpings of Hollywood schmaltz, stereotype and clich‚, but it's also pretty impossible to resist.
  8. Devoid of 21st-century irony, this visually stunning, action-packed yuletide treat is sweet and, yes, magical in a way that will enchant kids and give older viewers a twinge of nostalgia.
  9. It's as purely entertaining as it is thought-provoking and timely.
  10. Hilarious from first frame to last.
  11. The sweet script, crisp direction and a delightful performance by Leila Hatami, as the sad-eyed wife, should put Deserted Station on your must-see list.
  12. One of the year's best.
  13. One of the year's best.
  14. East Is East is "The Full Monty" of 2000, a fresh, funny and poignant film filled with sparkling performances.

  15. You can tell this is a smart take on Hamlet from the first wordless opening shots.
  16. Woody Allen's most purely entertaining film in years.
  17. In-depth performances by De Niro and Gooding Jr. provide the oxygen for this extremely shipshape biopic.
  18. I'm not generally a huge fan of movies with two-or three-person casts -- they tend to resemble filmed plays -- but The Business of Strangers is a knockout.
  19. You don't have to know Chile's bloody history to be moved by the poignant new film Machuca, the first movie made by a Chilean about the country's 1973 military coup.
  20. An intoxicating, heartbreaking Turkish-German drama that's already won a slew of awards from international film festivals.
  21. Kore-eda presents the deeply moving story in a documentary style that is both gentle and compelling.
  22. It's the well-wrought details that explain, perhaps better than any earlier film, how an entire country bought into Hitler's genocidal madness.
  23. Sobering and important.
  24. The less you know going in, the more you'll enjoy it. Suffice it to say that it's a hugely entertaining thriller disguised as a chick flick.
  25. Gut-Bustingly funny moves are pretty rare, so hustle over to Kung Fu Hustle, actor-director Ste phen Chow's exhilaratingly hilarious and affectionate send-up of Hong Kong action flicks.
  26. Akhavan plays each change brilliantly in a film that is so tightly controlled that the mere glimpse of a new beard or a prayer mat being unrolled becomes a moment of horror.
  27. Solondz beats on abortion defenders, stomps on the pro-life crowd and finishes up by telling us there is no free will. If you want some easy laughs tonight you'd be better off curling up with some Kierkegaard.
  28. Not for the squeamish, but it is a beautifully crafted and thoughtful film that genuinely provokes.
  29. A long, messy cinematic novel full of hate, love, murder, ghosts, madness, poetry and Catherine Deneuve.
  30. It could turn someone who never heard of the Flaming Lips into a devoted fan.
