  1. The friction between a couple of still-struggling artists sounds rather depressing, but in fact the film is often funny; it shows that love is present in even the couple’s harshest exchanges.
  2. The movie all but proclaims U2 the world's best rock band. Somewhere, Mick Jagger's jaws are grinding.
  3. Vol. 2 isn't anywhere near as self-indulgent as its predecessor, but it still plays like the work of a man too in love with his creations to decide which of his darlings to kill - so he ended up with merely a very good movie.
  4. Confirms Leigh's reputation as one of the world's master filmmakers - and showcases Staunton as one of its great actresses.
  5. A deliciously elusive mystery.
  6. A great abortion documentary might leave you guessing which side of the debate the director was on. Lake of Fire is not that film, but it comes somewhat close.
  7. The Soviet era is more interesting than the NHL years, but still, the film is entertaining even for ardent nonfans.
  8. The cast is amazing -- two of the lead actresses are first-timers.
  9. Gives a taste of what it might be like to live inside Mike Tyson's mind.
  10. Magnificent shots of waterfalls and other natural phenomena abound, but it's far too late in the history of nature photography to expect anyone to gawk at them.
  11. Slowly builds power to devastating effect.
  12. Mighty entertainment that makes you feel sorry for the saps next door in the multiplex.
  13. Love is Strange is very well worth seeing for its two stars, who acutely convey the pain their characters feel over their separation as well as displaying their considerable comic chops to keep things from getting too grim.
  14. The results are remarkably intelligent and entertaining, even for someone who (like this writer) finds Cave’s music rather dirge-like.
  15. A terrific work of political and social satire set in a Nebraska high school that has the intelligence of (the less coherent) "Rushmore," while painting a much darker picture of politics and human relationships.

  16. Like a dedicated teacher, this is a film that stays with you.
  17. A sublime meditation that is one of this year's wisest, warmest and funniest films.
  18. Thoughtful and entertaining documentary.
  19. The complexity might require a second viewing, but there is compensation in the realistic acting by a cast of non-pros and the eye-grabbing, hand-held lensing by Boaz Yehonatan Yacov.
  20. Like all great movies, 127 Hours takes us on a memorable journey. Which is not easy when 90 percent of the movie takes place with a virtually immobile hero in a very cramped setting.
  21. The story becomes so convoluted and contrived that much of the tension dissipates.
  22. Since this low-grade comedy doesn't really even attempt to be funny, the purpose of the movie is to establish (or reinforce) a feeling of luxurious old-timey melancholy.
  23. A kind name for this attitude is false moral equivalence, or perhaps post-imperial cringe. A less kind one is Western self-hatred, or an urgent plea to tolerate the intolerant.
  24. The image that sticks with you here is a smoky pub where the patrons are singing "You Belong to Me.''
  25. The story is fascinating, infuriating and even laugh-out-loud funny at times.
  26. Loving but overlong meditation on movies and the people who make them.
  27. A loving tribute to cinema by Tsai Ming-liang, one of Taiwan's most accomplished and popular directors.
  28. A pleasing fable reminiscent of G-rated nature movies of the '60s and '70s, before kiddie cinema required CGI or hip cultural references.
  29. Deadly serious about its message: that the West is just as vicious and corrupt as Africa.
  30. Larson shines as an adult staffer assigned to keep these self-destructive kids safe while they work with therapists.
