  1. Lassie is a dog movie even non-dog lovers will lap up.
  2. Strictly for fans of the musical acts and those who think everything Chappelle does is genius.
  3. Slight but affecting triptych.
  4. A riveting documentary.
  5. It's a shame that, on top of everything else, the second movie version of The Quiet American -- Graham Greene's brilliant 1955 novel about the French Indochina war -- should be so visually disappointing.
  6. It's full of passionate performances (except for the wooden Li), sizzling swordplay, bold and dazzling hues, and breathtaking landscapes.
  7. It’s a remarkable story, vividly and urgently told by French-Canadian director Vallée (“The Young Victoria”) from a pointed, schmaltz-free script by Craig Borten and Melissa Wallack.
  8. All three segments are heavy on blame-America speeches, which may be a fair snapshot of Iraqi opinion, but it's strange how fond Longley seems to be of Saddam Hussein.
  9. Don’t miss it — this is enormously fun visionary filmmaking, with a witty script and a great international cast.
  10. Two fins up for The Cove, a documentary that whales on evil Japanese fishermen who kill dolphins for lunch meat.
  11. The indie Mutual Appreciation isn't much more interesting than hanging out with four smart, nice, semi-confused people in their 20s. But that puts it far above the average movie.
  12. It's a highly erotic work that at no point seems staged. Credit brilliant use of fog, mirrors, silhouettes, slow motion and special effects worthy of a music video.
  13. Free love, vegetarianism and lack of personal property are the rule.
  14. Can’t possibly deserve your close attention. Yet it does, with distilled honky-tonk poetry and generous good humor. It’s one of the year’s best, most deeply felt films.
  15. Powerful, provocative and often surprisingly funny, this may be the year's outstanding documentary.
  16. The final result, shaped by the brilliantly nimble, pitch-perfect direction of Spike Jonze, and blessed by superb acting, is an extraordinarily clever comedy that falters only in the last 20 minutes.
  17. Rarely less than absorbing and never boring over its nearly three-hour length.
  18. The cast is solid, with standout performances by first-timer Habib Boufares as Slimane.
  19. A gorgeous and witty piece of stop-motion animation.
  20. The drivel they call "reality TV" pales in comparison with the gripping big-screen documentary Bus 174.
  21. In the Loop is certainly the smartest and funniest movie inspired by the Iraq war.
  22. A sophisticated, stylish, fast-moving piece of work.

  23. That it is such a powerful and indeed beautiful film is simply extraordinary.
  24. Vigorously played as a young man by Chris Pine, Kirk is a brilliant, sports-car driving, bar-brawling rebel who is finally shamed into joining Starfleet Academy.
  25. The film shows how quiet exteriors can mask deep interior lives, and how art feeds those lives. The view of art is richly intellectual, sometimes enthralling. But I confess, I liked Museum Hours best for answering a question I’ve always had: What is that guard thinking?
  26. Bahrani's unsentimental film is perhaps most interesting as a look at a colorful, little-known world that has recently been targeted for urban renewal.
  27. A love letter to a New York neighborhood that is rapidly disappearing -- a tight-knit Dominican community.
  28. Like a dedicated teacher, this is a film that stays with you.
  29. An instant classic.
  30. Deep, disturbing and funny.
