  1. 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.
  2. Free love, vegetarianism and lack of personal property are the rule.
  3. 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.
  4. Powerful, provocative and often surprisingly funny, this may be the year's outstanding documentary.
  5. 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.
  6. Rarely less than absorbing and never boring over its nearly three-hour length.
  7. The cast is solid, with standout performances by first-timer Habib Boufares as Slimane.
  8. A gorgeous and witty piece of stop-motion animation.
  9. The drivel they call "reality TV" pales in comparison with the gripping big-screen documentary Bus 174.
  10. In the Loop is certainly the smartest and funniest movie inspired by the Iraq war.
  11. A sophisticated, stylish, fast-moving piece of work.

  12. That it is such a powerful and indeed beautiful film is simply extraordinary.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. A love letter to a New York neighborhood that is rapidly disappearing -- a tight-knit Dominican community.
  16. An instant classic.
  17. Deep, disturbing and funny.
  18. Miyazaki offers a vivid, at times fantastical view of Japan between the wars, wracked by the Great Depression, a fearsome earthquake that leveled Tokyo in 1923, a tuberculosis epidemic and the rise of fascism.
  19. First-time director Jeff Malmberg tells Hogancamp's fascinating story with sensitivity, never resorting to exploitation.
  20. Sequels don't get much better - or smarter - than the action-, drama-, romance- and comedy-packed Spider-Man 2, which miraculously improves on the webslinger's hugely popular first screen adventure in every imaginable department.
  21. In a film that’s often sad but not without its triumphs, director Morgan Neville smartly explores the complex role that ego and self-promotion play in this profession.
  22. '71
    It’s a rare film that locates viciousness and kindness on both sides of Northern Ireland’s Troubles.
  23. It's the dancing that makes Pina a visual delight. It should appeal to dance mavens, and to folks who have no idea what a pas de deux is.
  24. The film is shaky as a procedural, and the level of official corruption seems more Moscow than Melbourne. Yet as a fable of power, vengeance and betrayal it exerts a quiet, increasingly wicked pull, equivalent to that of the wrinkly but ruthless grandma.
  25. Young Hugo (Asa Butterfield), a boy who literally lives inside the clocks he manages in a grand Paris train station in the 1930s, embodies one problem that bedeviled even Dickens: He's boringly nice.
  26. It falls to Hanks and his movie-star presence to anchor this ambitious enterprise, and he does some of his most impressive acting without saying a word.
  27. As cute and energetic as it is, The Lego Movie is more exhausting than fun, too unsure of itself to stick with any story thread for too long. The action scenes are enthusiastic, colorful but uninvolving, like an 8-year-old emptying a bucket of plastic blocks.
  28. If you have the patience, its almost endless silences and extremely slow pacing eventually pay off.
  29. Mostly it's worth seeing Alien, which established Scott as an A-list director, in a theater because his brilliant and often expansive visuals have always worked better on a big screen than on video.
  30. Not since "300" have I seen such manly mano-a-mano-ing as the iron clash of wills in the docu mentary King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.
