    All of this is punctuated with refreshingly strange wit.
  1. Herzog tries to make sense out of the blond-haired young man, who looked an awful lot like Kinski.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Expect a sequel -- perhaps one with a more satisfying conclusion.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Just Like Heaven isn't far short of a classic among romantic comedies with a teary chaser, sure to please fans of "Ghost" and "Heaven Can Wait."
  2. An instant classic.
  3. In his fourth outing with the director, cinematographer Andreas Sinanos produces stunning scene after stunning scene, almost as if each frame were a small painting.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Adults will be more than passably entertained by this short, patriotic feature, and kids will be entranced.
  4. A remarkably assured feature debut by Bennett Miller, a longtime director of commercials (and the documentary "The Cruise") whose no-frills style trusts that the powerful material and the uniformly excellent performances need little embellishment.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    With its dry wit and all-star household, Baumbach's movie resembles Wes Anderson's "The Royal Tenenbaums" without the heavy whimsy.
  5. If animated dogs were eligible for acting awards, the Oscar would go to Gromit.
  6. Includes insightful and often hilarious archival interviews with Langlois and dozens of associates, as well as wonderful footage of Langlois.
  7. A classic social drama in the proud tradition of "Norma Rae," "Silkwood" and "Erin Brockovich."

    Thebest sports movies aren't really about sports. Dreamer has a few thundering horse races, but its finest moments are beautifully still ones, like the one in which a little girl peeks through a fence to give a lame filly a Popsicle.
    • 62 Metascore

    Like Truffaut's heaviest work, it's less interested in what brings people together than in what keeps them apart, and it achieves a painful truth you won't find in dating comedies.
  8. Combining a thoughtful script with splendid acting -- especially by Sansa -- Bellocchio has fashioned a tense thriller that is both understated and powerful.
  9. Clooney, who gained 35 pounds for the role, gives a self-effacing but highly effective performance.
  10. Constantly battling, Hoskins and Dench have terrific chemistry together.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Its many pleasures derive from the way this drama unfolds unexpectedly from the characters rather than imposing itself on them.
  11. A deliciously elusive mystery.
  12. Censors in Iran must have been smoking weed when they approved I'm Taraneh, 15, a sympathetic portrait of an unwed mother.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Veers between mystery, comedy, philosophical inquest and medical/psychological drama.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    This is a guy comedy being mismarketed as a chick flick, complete with a poster that looks like a page from Lucky magazine.
  13. An entertaining piece of pulp fiction.
  14. 4
    It's not always clear exactly what's happening in this dark tale, full of barking dogs and slabs of meat. But you won't be able to take your eyes from the screen; nor will you quickly forget this fiercely original eye-popper.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It'll make you want to dig out your Whitesnake T-shirt. It might even convince Tipper Gore that heavy metal thunder is all in good fun.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Similar to the recent Emmanuelle Devos drama "Gilles' Wife," but it's as cool as that one was melodramatic.
  15. Showcases a brilliantly realistic performance by Abbie Cornish as Heidi. She's a provocative mix of naivete and ripe, unbridled sexuality.
  16. It's a long, brutal and honest look at a shattering event some Americans would apparently prefer not to see depicted - but also a respectful, inspiring one that's in no way exploitative or emotionally manipulative.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    If they were still making Looney Tunes, they'd look a lot like Over the Hedge.
  17. Cars leaves the animated competition in the dust, even if it is a tad slower and more predictable than Pixar at full throttle.
