  1. With its refined wit and glorious vision, The Hudsucker Proxy is certainly deserving of a wide audience.
  2. With Hugo, Martin Scorsese has accomplished what few in Hollywood are willing to try: make a movie for adults that arrives without sex, violence, or profanity and earns a PG-rating.
  3. The tale related here isn't all that original, but the honest presentation lends impact to a wrenching scenario.
  4. Its complex (yet not mystifying) storytelling, forceful character development, and superb cinematography make this a candidate for one of 2006's best offerings.
  5. With Get Shorty, Sonnenfeld has shown that broad appeal doesn't necessarily equate with stupidity. That's a lesson Hollywood should learn.
  6. Superman Returns is not only a credit to the first two Superman movies; it may be the best of the series. Its combination of romance and fantasy adventure is unparalleled in superhero comic book-to-movie sagas.
  7. Mandoki has given us a powerful motion picture. Even those who disagree with the film's politics will be haunted by its message.
  8. When it's over, the sense is one of deep satisfaction - of having gotten to know a family in a way few motion pictures allow.
  9. With its rapid pace, smart screenplay, and top-notch acting, this is one of the 2007 Oscar season's most appealing and compelling adult motion pictures.
  10. Overall, it's a story of triumph and adventure - of oppression ended and freedom begun.
  11. This is as anti-Hollywood a film as I have seen in recent months, one which takes conventional plot ideas and uses them not to season a melodrama, but to enrich fully three-dimensional characters and create a forceful motion picture.
  12. With its rare mixture of intelligent plotting, flawless acting, and start-to- finish tension, Copycat is a force to be reckoned with.
  13. Nebraska is a rambling affair. It's about characters and dialogue. There's not much of a narrative to speak of - this is even more minimalist than "About Schmidt" or "Sideways."
  14. As is often the case with European films, the acting is superlative...The real standout, however, is newcomer Jaye Davidson, whose performance is, without exaggeration, stunning...Not to be missed.
  15. It's a noteworthy achievement for director Damien Chazelle to infuse a tale about the development of a musician with all the tension and intensity of a top-notch thriller. Whiplash is riveting.
  16. Good, solid entertainment.
  17. Like other actors who successfully create a cinematic doppelganger of a real person, Strathairn gets under the character's skin.
  18. Cinematic magic.
  19. The Wings of the Dove is not a happy tale, but it is a vivid and unforgettable one, featuring multi- dimensional characters, beautiful cinematography, impressive set design, and accomplished acting.
  20. Despite the grim, serious nature of the subject matter, Meirelles unearths occasional moments of humor, although they are often of the gallows variety.
  21. The screenplay is written with a thinking audience in mind, the dialogue sparkles, the characters leap off the screen in full three-dimensionality, and the cliches are kept to a bare minimum.
  22. This enigmatic and in some ways maddening motion picture has the power to haunt every viewer it reaches.
  23. You don't have to be Catholic, or Irish, or even American, to "get it." Burns' language, despite originating on Long Island, is universal in appeal and meaning.
  24. One of the reasons that Quiz Show is so extraordinary is because it spins a story as compelling on the personal level as on the national one.
  25. Not since "The Crying Game" has Jordan crafted as compelling a motion picture.
  26. This is most definitely NOT a date movie. But if you appreciate films that are more substance than style, that take challenges and don't follow formulas, and that feature Oscar-caliber performances, Closer is not to be missed.
  27. For those who enjoy the offbeat, The City of Lost Children is worth taking the time and effort to find.
  28. Caused a major stir with Sundance, and for good reason -- it was perhaps the most offbeat, energetic, and eye-opening motion picture to screen there.
  29. Tells a good, intelligent story that keeps us interested and involved.
  30. It's an uncompromising movie that illustrates one of the most convincing personality transformations that I have seen in a recent motion picture.
