  1. Visually flat and uninteresting and too often feels like a (leisurely paced) filmed play.
  2. The Pianist recalls "Schindler's List," even down to its weakness: Just as Spielberg's film turned sentimental in its final half hour, Polanski's work, too, has a schmaltz coda. But that doesn't make The Pianist any less effective.
  3. A powerful piece of filmmaking.
  4. All too often, films about interconnected lives stumble under the weight of coincidences. Not The Edge of Heaven.
  5. Darkly hilarious.
  6. Lebanon is inspired by the director's traumatic days at the front, giving his work a sense of authority.
  7. Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.
  8. It's mainly about a supremely annoying French-born LA clothier who became a hugely successful artist without pausing to consider his utter lack of originality or talent.
  9. Girlhood veers between being a celebration of sisterhood (albeit an occasionally violent sort) and a chronicle of the cycle of poverty.
  10. Rapturously elegant and deeply sexy in a deliciously restrained way. One of the most romantic movies I have ever seen, right up there with "Brief Encounter"and "Casablanca."

  11. The story is good-natured, but Panahi's message is serious: That ludicrous rules turn Iranian women into third-class citizens. And what better way is there to get that point across than through sports and laughter?

    I was reminded, at times, of the painstakingly detailed beauty of “The Triplets of Belleville,” but Moore has a more ethereal, rounded aesthetic all his own. They don’t make movies like this anymore — except when, lucky us, they do.
  12. Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.
  13. This isn't a war movie. Rather, it's a powerful, heart-tugging portrait of the innocent victims of conflict.
  14. In the end, inner peace is found by all - on screen and in the audience.
  15. As this Woodstock-on-wheels careens through the countryside, stopping only to play for thousands of hirsute revelers -- and, once, to stock up on booze in Saskatoon -- its famous passengers celebrate with delirious joy the pure, unadulterated magic of music.
  16. Despite the lingering aroma of Victorian rot shrouding 1961, An Education is excitingly young.
  17. Thanks to his (Oldman) mastery, and Alfredson's, no film this year left me hungrier for a sequel.
  18. Too bad there is only about half an hour's worth of story here. Mostly, we just watch the teacher get high, and his classroom talks about civil rights are nothing but filler.
  19. Daniele Cipri's highly stylized lensing and Carlo Crivelli's bold score add to the movie's flamboyant aura. But then, the story of a bombastic dictator deserves a bombastic telling.
  20. In an era when documentaries are looking more and more glossy, it's almost refreshing to see the austere approach taken by veteran Frederick Wiseman.
  21. You are left with two emotions - despair and hope - after watching producer-director Jennifer Dworkin's disquieting documentary.
  22. A must-see for Nicholson's mesmerizing performance, which would probably hold interest even if the sound were turned off.
  23. A schmaltzy filmed record of a Nashville concert given by the legendary former rocker, who has morphed into the new Kenny Rogers.
  24. It's a positive hat trick by John Cameron Mitchell.
  25. So, should you see The Intruder? Yes -- but only if you're willing to ignore bothersome concerns about narrative and let the poetic images take over your mind.
  26. It would be possible to appreciate Shannon's fabulous work in Take Shelter far better if the filmmaker lost a quarter of the two-hour running time -- there are many overlong scenes that make this a needlessly tough sit.
  27. Fives us behind-the-scene looks at Hirohito, the man and the ruler. The diminutive leader comes off sympathetically, as a man concerned with the welfare of his people.
  28. If The Past doesn’t equal the masterpiece that preceded it, it’s still an exceptional film from a man who is clearly one of the best working directors.
  29. This wonderful party of a movie, as totally original as its hero, stamps on a smiley face that will linger for hours.
