  1. Linklater ambitiously shot his new effort over a period of 12 years with the same cast, showcasing what turns out to be an astonishing performance by newcomer Ellar Coltrane, who grows up from 6 to 18 before our eyes over the course of 164 minutes.
  2. Lino Ventura is grand as a solemn resistance leader. He's backed by a knockout cast that includes Simone Signoret.
  3. Nothing this year comes close to being as utterly unforgettable as Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, an extremely dark and disturbing fairy tale for audiences say, ages 12 and up.
  4. It is filmmaking as it should be but usually isn't.
  5. Well-meaning films like “Lincoln’’ and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler’’ merely scratch the surface compared to the deep and painful truths laid bare by 12 Years a Slave. It’s about time, Scarlett O’Hara.
  6. If there is a genius working in Hollywood today, it's animation director Brad Bird, who tops the delightful "The Incredibles" with arguably the finest 'toon in the Pixar canon, Ratatouille.
  7. Bursting with energy and originality even after 36 years, A Hard Day's Night is easily the best show in town.
  8. Compared by some to “2001: A Space Odyssey,’’ Cuarón’s relatively intimate space epic is equally groundbreaking in the spectacular way it depicts space.
  9. Quite possibly the first truly great fact-based movie of the 21st century.
  10. Like the fictional Clarice Starling in "The Silence of the Lambs,'' Maya is a consummate professional who brilliantly performs her job in an often hostile work environment.
  11. In the compelling but slow-moving Iranian film A Separation, a downbeat family drama of no particular distinction gradually turns into a mystery that raises painful moral questions. There may be several guilty parties.
  12. Making a movie this warm, funny, and rigorously truthful about lovers trying to remain partners is even harder.
  13. A Japanese cross between "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Wizard of Oz" -- is such a landmark in animation that labeling it a masterpiece almost seems inadequate.
  14. An all-time classic that seems even better after two decades.
  15. Stretched both timewise and for plausibility.
  16. A charming, hilarious robot love story aimed at the entire family.
  17. A sublime variation on the buddy road movie, infusing the midlife crises of the two main protagonists with hope and poetry.
  18. A majestic conclusion to a nine-plus-hours epic that stirs the heart, mind and soul as few films ever have.
  19. Carlos is exciting entertainment, even if its subject's two-decade reign of terror is reprehensible.
  20. All great films have imagination; this one also has the sense of experience.
  21. You have never seen a movie like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon because there has never been a movie like it.
  22. The Coens, so cutting to so many of their characters, are gentler with Llewyn, inviting us to wander and wonder along with him as he ponders why he must forever play the jerk.
  23. Presents an intelligent, profound and at times heartrending slice of Taiwanese middle-class existence - as seen by characters at different stages of life.
  24. You won't have a more viscerally emotional experience at the movies this year.
  25. The Class offers no Hollywood ending, but is rewarding for those up to the challenge.
  26. Denis -- who has called the film a tribute to the great Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu -- keeps dialogue to a minimum as she delicately examines how immigration is changing the face of France.
  27. Between D-Day, the sheer ambition of Paul Thomas Anderson's historical epic and Robert Elswit's dazzling cinematography, this is a must-see movie - even though its emotional temperature rarely rises above freezing and the climax goes way, way, way over the top.
  28. So consistently involving because the excellent cast delivers their lines with the kind of utter conviction not seen in this kind of movie since the first "Star Wars."
  29. While Tarr's newest epic, Werckmeister Harmonies, isn't intended for the shopping-mall crowd, it is more viewer-friendly and will please adventurous moviegoers.
  30. May not be a masterpiece, but it still had me in tears at the end.
