  1. Showcases a brilliantly realistic performance by Abbie Cornish as Heidi. She's a provocative mix of naivete and ripe, unbridled sexuality.
  2. Bluebeard revisits themes often found in Breillat's films -- sibling rivalry, pedophilia, gender conflict -- but it remains fresh and new.
  3. Overall, the film is not quite up to "Aladdin" and "The Little Mermaid" from the same directing team of Ron Clements and John Musker, not to mention the recent string of masterpieces from Pixar.
  4. More than just a musical primer. It's also a valentine to the city on the Bosporus, the strait that separates Istanbul's Asian and European sides.
  5. I'm not sure why it took 50 years for Araya to reach New York, but let us be thankful to Milestone Films for giving life to this forgotten film.
  6. Well-done documentary.
  7. An absorbing documentary.
  8. Dark, morbidly funny and quite violent movie, which plays with audience members' heads in ways many people will find quite disturbing.
  9. A challenging experimental film that will never play in a commercial movie theater and is settling in for a two-week run at the ever-venturesome Film Forum.
  10. Compelling but self-undermining documentary.
  11. Turing’s tale needs to be more widely known, and while The Imitation Game may not be a great film, it is an important one.
  12. A highly original black comedy from Greece -- and one of the weirdest movies I've seen in a long time.
  13. The action is brutal, bloody and virtually nonstop in this adrenaline-packed riff on "Assault on Precinct 13.''
  14. Sweet isn't a word often used to describe movies these days, but it's one that applies to The Cave of the Yellow Dog.
  15. Johnny Depp puts in a cameo declaring that "most Americans believe the clichés about Gypsies." Unfortunately, the well-intentioned film never gets beyond clichés itself.
  16. Writer-director Erik Van Looy keeps the action moving briskly. Danny Elsen's cinematography is stylish and the acting top-notch.
  17. Based on the many delightful samples on the soundtrack, it's an exemplary goal.
  18. Part sitcom, part comedy of manners - but it lacks the courage to deal honestly with class and ethnicity.
  19. The teary-eyed sincerity of the music-industry drama Beyond the Lights is at times too much, but despite its cliche elements, the film at least has the feel of a passion project.
  20. Anything following that spectacular sequence is bound to be something of a letdown - especially when it ends up playing like standard-issue Hollywood melodrama.

    (Kusturica) celebrates its gaudy humanity in a joyous picture that is his most lighthearted and amusing work to date.

  21. The very effectiveness of After the Life's depiction of its main characters makes its immediate predecessor seem that much more of a waste.
  22. Working from an unfinished script by the late, great Krzysztof Kieslowski, Stuhr directs in a laid-back, deadpan style that, at times, recalls Fellini.
  23. This satisfying adaptation of a popular novel is mostly an artistic reflection on youthful loss of innocence.
  24. An amusing McGimmick.
  25. Enthralling performances are given by Tadanobu Asano (Miike's "Ichi the Killer") as Kenji and first-timer Sinitta Boonyasak as the pot-smoking Noi.
  26. The movie itself is a powerful cocktail of not just sex and love but race, poverty, colonialism and jealousy.
  27. Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan are superb as the couple, who use the occasion to drop bombs on each other.
  28. A grabber from start to finish that should win new fans for cult-favorite To.
  29. Agreeable this film certainly is, but the shagginess never seems to take shape.
