  1. Puccini for Beginners 2007 The movie offers a charming view of a small-town Manhattan where strangers constantly give Allegra romantic advice. Though that device is a little too indebted to Woody Allen, at least Maggenti does Allen a lot better than Ed Burns. full review
  2. 49 Up 2005 The films have taken on an autumnal shade as we revisit people who seem quietly aware that the years behind them are more than those ahead. full review
  3. Capote 2005 Hoffman goes beyond impersonation to something close to possession. full review
  4. Old Joy 2005 Old Joy may be built around a road trip, but it's also a movie about two roads -- and two souls -- diverging. full review
  5. CSA: Confederate States of America 2003 A mockumentary often as unnerving as it is amusing, CSA: The Confederate States of America kicks off with a simple premise: What if the South had won 'the War of Northern Aggression'? full review
  6. The Triplets of Belleville 2003 Zee French, zay are different, non? Well, in this case, wonderfully so. full review
  7. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2001 So good, it reminds you how the best films transport you to another world. full review
  8. Shaolin Soccer 2001 It's genial goofiness can keep you smiling for 87 minutes. full review
  9. Gossip 2000 Gossip isn't really worth talking about. full review
  10. The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle 2000 The movie never quite coheres into a consistent vision. full review
  11. American Psycho 2000 A visually chilly but often very funny satire of American greed and conspicuous consumption. full review
  12. Hamlet 2000 A moody and compelling update of Shakespeare's classic. full review
  13. The Original Kings of Comedy 2000 Under Spike Lee's direction it's one of the liveliest concert films in years. full review
  14. Scream 3 2000 [Wraps] up the trilogy in satisfying fashion. full review
  15. Urban Legends: Final Cut 2000 A bad remake of Scream 3. full review
  16. With A Friend Like Harry 2000 It's a dry, cool character study that's primarily an exercise in tonal control - neither very funny nor very scary, but unnerving in a slow-burn way. full review
  17. In Too Deep 1999 Sharp performances. full review
  18. The Ninth Gate 1999 Watching The Ninth Gate is like being force-marched through dank rooms piled high with musty books, led by drab tour guides who mutter the same pedantic points over and over. full review
  19. Superstar 1999 Silly but compellingly sweet movie. full review
  20. The Talented Mr. Ripley 1999 It's an Italian feast, spiked with just enough arsenic to make the flavors interesting and dangerous. full review
  21. The Thomas Crown Affair 1999 Crown is a guilt-free pleasure, a way to waste a couple of hours happily at the theater without encountering computer-generated monsters or teenagers losing their virginity.
  22. The Virgin Suicides 1999 This shimmery, darkly comic adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides' novel marks the assured, often inspired feature film debut of writer-director Sofia Coppola. full review
  23. Shakespeare in Love 1998 Like some of Shakespeare's own, unclassifiable plays that bounce between comedy and tragedy, it's a wonderful mess.
  24. The Legend of Drunken Master (Jui kuen II) (Drunken Fist II) 1994 Jackie Chan in top form. full review
