  1. Can be summed up in one word: style.
  2. Not for all tastes, but it demonstrates Loach's skill as a poet of gritty semi-documentary filmmaking.
  3. The real star of The Son isn't lead actor Olivier Gourmet. It's the back of his neck, which the camera obsessively focuses on throughout this difficult but rewarding Belgian drama.
  4. The profanity-laced but witty and literate dialogue by William Monahan ("Kingdom of Heaven") is delivered by a brilliantly chosen cast, almost all of whom are operating at the very top of their game.
  5. This environmentally themed, very loose version of Hans Christian Andersen's "Little Mermaid" is never going to be mistaken for Disney's musical of the same name.
  6. The movie is more a situation than a narrative, and it's repetitive and depressing. One interrupter -- a murderer who did 14 years in prison -- says of the program, "In essence, it's just a Band-Aid." At best: One of his colleagues gets shot in the back for his peacekeeping effort.
  7. A mouse and a bear defy social convention to forge a friendship in this lovely, charming and Oscar-nominated French animated feature (now available dubbed into English with the voices of Forest Whitaker and other notables).

    A flat-out masterpiece, surely the best movie of the year; indeed, an all-time classic.
    • New York Post
  8. The closing subtitle says that no one was ever prosecuted for this madness. The pure-archive approach leaves a taste of despair; civic governance, it seems, can’t even promise not to kill you.
  9. A startling look at the devastating human cost of China's newfound embrace of capitalism.
  10. The best reason to wade into this (let's be honest) challenging but hugely rewarding film is Quvenzhané Wallis.
  11. Fans of Hou know just what to expect from his slow, contemplative films - and they won't be disappointed.
  12. Anyone expecting a hard-hitting biography will be disappointed by Julian Schnabel's soft-edged, dreamy and relatively nonpolitical film.
    • New York Post
  13. Director Paul Greengrass - who directed the superb "United 93" between the second and third "Bourne" installments - knows how to stage and edit bravura action sequences, generating almost unbearable suspense while deploying a superb cast.
  14. Visually flat and uninteresting and too often feels like a (leisurely paced) filmed play.
  15. 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.
  16. A powerful piece of filmmaking.

    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.
  17. Amy
    Two of Winehouse’s oldest friends also contribute, giving deeply sad accounts of watching their goofy, fearless pal disappear into a haze of flashbulbs and self-destruction.
  18. All too often, films about interconnected lives stumble under the weight of coincidences. Not The Edge of Heaven.
  19. Darkly hilarious.
  20. Lebanon is inspired by the director's traumatic days at the front, giving his work a sense of authority.
  21. This sounds like a comedy, and in its slow, deadpan way, that’s what The Treasure is; the film is an unusual mixture of joy and cynicism.
  22. Essential viewing not just for those fascinated by adventure, exploration and survival, but for anyone interested in the magic of leadership.
  23. The two working girls at the center of Tangerine are played by engaging newcomers: Kitana Kiki Rodriguez as the freshly out-of-jail Sin-Dee Rella, and Mya Taylor as her best friend Alexandra.
  24. 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.
  25. Girlhood veers between being a celebration of sisterhood (albeit an occasionally violent sort) and a chronicle of the cycle of poverty.
  26. 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."
    • New York Post
  27. 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?
  28. Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.
