  1. Confirms Leigh's reputation as one of the world's master filmmakers - and showcases Staunton as one of its great actresses.
  2. A deliciously elusive mystery.
  3. 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.
  4. The Soviet era is more interesting than the NHL years, but still, the film is entertaining even for ardent nonfans.
  5. The cast is amazing -- two of the lead actresses are first-timers.
  6. Gives a taste of what it might be like to live inside Mike Tyson's mind.
  7. 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.
  8. Slowly builds power to devastating effect.
  9. An indie exercise in macho posturing disguised as a tale of grief, reminds us that losing one’s parents is psychically debilitating. But that’s about as useful as knowing that rain is wet.
  10. Unlike many working in this genre, Mitchell doesn’t punish young women for having sex: This is a gender-blind demonic delivery vehicle.
  11. Mighty entertainment that makes you feel sorry for the saps next door in the multiplex.
  12. Tamhane’s quiet techniques build to pure, cold fury.
  13. The results are remarkably intelligent and entertaining, even for someone who (like this writer) finds Cave’s music rather dirge-like.
  14. 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.

  15. One of the year’s warmest and most crowd-pleasing surprises.
  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. Brazilian director Anna Muylaert’s deft, funny film is set in São Paulo, but the class distinctions shown have no borders.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. The story becomes so convoluted and contrived that much of the tension dissipates.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. The image that sticks with you here is a smoky pub where the patrons are singing "You Belong to Me.''
  26. The End of the Tour is a five-day bender of a talk — a film that illuminates like few others the singular pleasure of shared discovery of one another’s sensibility. In an unassuming way, it’s a glory.
  27. The story is fascinating, infuriating and even laugh-out-loud funny at times.
  28. Loving but overlong meditation on movies and the people who make them.
  29. A loving tribute to cinema by Tsai Ming-liang, one of Taiwan's most accomplished and popular directors.
  30. A pleasing fable reminiscent of G-rated nature movies of the '60s and '70s, before kiddie cinema required CGI or hip cultural references.
