  1. Its superb performances, music, photography, dialogue, its rhythms of tone and theme all complement each perfectly.
  2. Delightful performances are delivered by all in this ingenious work of cinema that is worth seeing if only for its glorious views of the Himalayas.
  3. You won't have a more viscerally emotional experience at the movies this year.
  4. Such is literature’s power that the cast is more at ease portraying ancient Romans than speaking as versions of themselves.
  5. The first movie I've seen in a very long while that deserves to be called a masterpiece. It's such a stunning achievement in storytelling.
  6. Denzel Washington dazzles in his best screen performance to date as Frank Lucas.
  7. A thrilling, beautifully crafted, fact-based horse story that's not merely the summer's finest movie, but may well be the one to catch come Academy Awards time.
  8. No film I’ve seen so far this year has provided the sheer moviegoing pleasure of We Are the Best!
  9. A sumptuous masterpiece by one of the greatest moviemakers of all time.
  10. Audacious, thought-provoking and ruefully funny.
  11. Detroit may be tricked out with the Motown and miniskirts of the era, but its police-brutality narrative, assembled with firsthand accounts of that day, has chilling parallels with the here and now. It is not an easy watch, and it is an essential one.
  12. A great movie, period. It's great because it's so real.
  13. A stunning drama from that remote former Soviet republic.
  14. More than a thriller, Phoenix is a ghost story, made plain in an extraordinary shot of Nelly’s terror at a passing train.
  15. The androgynous Dobroshi is in nearly every scene. She has an exceptional screen presence that brings authority to her portrayal of a woman seeking redemption. As for the Dardennes, they prove yet again that nobody does human frailty the way they do.
  16. 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."

  17. The surreal images, offbeat jokes and pointed human-rights allegory make this an altogether different experience from most American animation. It’s dreamy, poetic and not to be missed.
  18. Glossy, big-budget thriller that qualifies as the season's biggest and most rewarding surprise.
  19. A spare, exquisitely realized masterpiece about faith, redemption and boxing that beautifully illustrates his longtime philosophy that "less is more."
  20. A Hijacking is Lindholm’s second feature as director; he’s also worked with such austere Danes as Thomas Vinterberg of Dogme 95 fame. What he’s learned, it seems, is how to strip away distractions, and let character become suspense, as well as destiny.
  21. Everything a summer blockbuster should be but rarely is - a whip-smart, slam-bang piece of entertainment where we deeply care about the fate of the central characters.
  22. Nolan blurs the distinction between dreams and reality so artfully that Inception may well be a masterpiece masquerading as a summer blockbuster.
  23. Lee's incendiary and brilliant new film.
    • New York Post
  24. It's impossible to conceive of this ruefully funny entertainment without Bill Murray, who is nothing less than brilliant.
  25. This spectacularly great reboot is surprisingly owned not by Hardy, who is fine, but by Charlize Theron.
  26. Park's direction is flawless and Jung Jung-hoon's cinematography is stunning.
  27. The breathtaking visual and aural restoration by Coppola and Murch makes the film's original glories even more intense than you remember them.
  28. The actors in Compliance perform with thorough and chilling sincerity.
  29. Profound and majestic.
  30. Director Zack Snyder's cerebral, scintillating follow-up to "300" seems, to even a weary filmgoer's eye, as fresh and magnificent in sound and vision as "2001" must have seemed in 1968, yet in its eagerness to argue with itself, it resembles "A Clockwork Orange."
