  1. This remarkable new documentary from Raymond De Felitta ("City Island") fruitfully revisits the aftermath of a TV doc that his father, Frank, produced for NBC in 1965.
  2. Williams, who was elected president of ASCAP in 2009, speaks frankly and eloquently about his problems dealing with fame, and his recovery. And more important, he earns our thanks by resolutely refusing to let Kessler turn this into a clichéd documentary.
  3. In the Loop is certainly the smartest and funniest movie inspired by the Iraq war.
  4. Adults will be more than passably entertained by this short, patriotic feature, and kids will be entranced.
  5. Adding goofy uncertainty to shoulders as wide as the East River makes for a disarming hero in one of the spiffiest WWII action yarns ever to march out of Hollywood.

    The entire film is a feast for the eyes that brings to mind the work of Hong Kong ace Wong Kar-Wai.
  6. Nutty Danish provocateur Lars von Trier -- long one of the most annoying filmmakers on the planet -- turns out one of the year's most emotionally resonant art movies.
  7. The filmmaker doesn't speculate about why these men are talking, but he leaves you with an excellent guess.
  8. It's strange enough to be raised by your aunt. For young John Lennon, things get stranger still when he finds himself dating his mother.
  9. Philippe Béziat’s documentary focuses on how Sivadier and his Violetta, the French soprano Natalie Dessay, fuse acting with the music. It’s an incredible view of artists at work.
  10. Gripping, smart and moving, without falling prey to sentimentality, it shows what can be achieved when mainstream filmmakers like Howard and Goldsman are genuinely inspired and determined to be honest.
  11. In place of elaborate sets, clever filmmaking gives the impression of a central London emptied of people and cars, to eerie effect - and this opening reel is nothing short of magnificent.
  12. Cars leaves the animated competition in the dust, even if it is a tad slower and more predictable than Pixar at full throttle.
  13. An exhilarating, sweeping epic that begs to be seen on the largest possible screen.

  14. This demanding puzzle is not for the "Chocolat" crowd, but those who stay with it will experience perhaps the most dazzling film released so far this year - even though a second viewing is virtually mandatory.

  15. I'm not generally a huge fan of movies with two-or three-person casts -- they tend to resemble filmed plays -- but The Business of Strangers is a knockout.
  16. An instant classic.
  17. Pieta is one of Kim’s most complex and mature efforts, melding violence and humor into dark entertainment.
  18. Includes insightful and often hilarious archival interviews with Langlois and dozens of associates, as well as wonderful footage of Langlois.
  19. This movie doesn't get huffy, it gets laughs.
  20. The role of William is a perfect fit for Red West, a well-weathered member of Elvis Presley's Memphis Mafia who has served as a bodyguard as well as a stuntman and bit-part actor.
  21. Rarely less than absorbing and never boring over its nearly three-hour length.
  22. Like some of Hitchcock's films, the story - adapted from a novel by Charlotte Armstrong, an American mystery writer of the '40s and '50s - can be accused of stretching credibility and coincidence almost to the breaking point.
  23. Be warned: Though it's entirely justified by the story, there's a level of violence and brutality in Training Day -- that some terror-weary audience members may not care to cope with these days.
  24. Lilya is portrayed by Oksana Akinshina, who gives a dynamic, heartbreaking performance... She was wonderful in ["Brothers"], but is even more astonishing in Lilya 4-Ever.
  25. Sicario, which combines dizzying action scenes with a taut script, ravishing photography and an otherwordly musical score, is a knockout.
  26. Genuinely creepy Southern Gothic thriller that once again proves that in horror movies, sometimes less is actually more.
  27. The result is an immensely enjoyable portrait of a strange-looking, non-comforming genius who loved women as much as designing masterpieces but was never able to commit to them. In other words: great architect, lousy family man.
  28. Turns out to be one of the most absorbing films of the year. Plus it has lots of wiener jokes.
  29. So terrifically entertaining, it would be a shame if it didn't inspire a companion piece on New York.
