  1. The story is good-natured, but Panahi's message is serious: That ludicrous rules turn Iranian women into third-class citizens. And what better way is there to get that point across than through sports and laughter?
  2. Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.
  3. This isn't a war movie. Rather, it's a powerful, heart-tugging portrait of the innocent victims of conflict.
  4. In the end, inner peace is found by all - on screen and in the audience.
  5. As this Woodstock-on-wheels careens through the countryside, stopping only to play for thousands of hirsute revelers -- and, once, to stock up on booze in Saskatoon -- its famous passengers celebrate with delirious joy the pure, unadulterated magic of music.
  6. Despite the lingering aroma of Victorian rot shrouding 1961, An Education is excitingly young.
  7. Thanks to his (Oldman) mastery, and Alfredson's, no film this year left me hungrier for a sequel.
  8. Too bad there is only about half an hour's worth of story here. Mostly, we just watch the teacher get high, and his classroom talks about civil rights are nothing but filler.
  9. Daniele Cipri's highly stylized lensing and Carlo Crivelli's bold score add to the movie's flamboyant aura. But then, the story of a bombastic dictator deserves a bombastic telling.
  10. In an era when documentaries are looking more and more glossy, it's almost refreshing to see the austere approach taken by veteran Frederick Wiseman.
  11. You are left with two emotions - despair and hope - after watching producer-director Jennifer Dworkin's disquieting documentary.
  12. A must-see for Nicholson's mesmerizing performance, which would probably hold interest even if the sound were turned off.
  13. Beautiful to look at, with its burnished interiors and magnificent Turkish steppes, this long film builds to a powerful conclusion. Ceylan’s characters grind each other to a powder while hardly raising their voices.
  14. A schmaltzy filmed record of a Nashville concert given by the legendary former rocker, who has morphed into the new Kenny Rogers.
  15. It's a positive hat trick by John Cameron Mitchell.
  16. So, should you see The Intruder? Yes -- but only if you're willing to ignore bothersome concerns about narrative and let the poetic images take over your mind.
  17. It would be possible to appreciate Shannon's fabulous work in Take Shelter far better if the filmmaker lost a quarter of the two-hour running time -- there are many overlong scenes that make this a needlessly tough sit.
  18. Fives us behind-the-scene looks at Hirohito, the man and the ruler. The diminutive leader comes off sympathetically, as a man concerned with the welfare of his people.
  19. If The Past doesn’t equal the masterpiece that preceded it, it’s still an exceptional film from a man who is clearly one of the best working directors.
  20. This wonderful party of a movie, as totally original as its hero, stamps on a smiley face that will linger for hours.

    In most respects, The Iron Giant is one of the better animated children's films in recent memory, which makes its strident political correctness all the more frustrating.
  21. What might seem like showing off in another movie is dazzling storytelling here, packing in an hour's worth of human misery.
  22. A fantastical genre-buster.
  23. A gut-wrenching, politically neutral documentary that spends more than a year with a platoon of American GIs in a valley that's been called the most dangerous spot on Earth.
  24. For all its flaws, The Tree of Life is a stunning exception to the rule that you can safely check your brain at the popcorn counter until after Labor Day. That's enough to place it among the year's best movies, or at least most-talked-about ones.
  25. Basically canned musical theater, but this is one Tony-winning Broadway show that's well worth preserving and seeing.
  26. A Western, but any similarities between it and, say, a Gene Autry or Hopalong Cassidy shoot-em-up are nonexistent.
  27. The film, then, places a heavy hand on the scales of justice as it winds up with a fuzzy plea — an implied demand for a second, federal civil rights trial for the cop, who got a light sentence. But the shooting wasn’t a racist one.
  28. A worthy addition to the growing canon of Holocaust documentaries.

  29. This film is fighting the good fight, albeit in a rather heavy-handed way.
