59% Disclosure (1994) In this world of Information Highway sophistication and virtual-reality marvels, the pivotal plot points are all rickety coincidences: an overheard conversation, a fortuitous phone call.‐ Newsweek

88% The Usual Suspects (1995) For many true movie fiends, noir is the key American movie type, and the most fun when it's done right. The Usual Suspects is done right.‐ Newsweek

50% Shadows and Fog (1992) Shadows and Fog is Woody Allen's first mystery movie. The mystery: what caused this total breakdown of a unique artist?‐ Newsweek

63% Strange Days (1995) Director Kathryn Bigelow comes closer than any other filmmaker to turning movies into a virtual reality trip.‐ Newsweek

54% City Hall (1996) Its chief pleasure is the acting of the big cast, notably Pacino. At 55, he has a haggard, life-wrestling beauty and a street eloquence that has more innocence than De Niro and more sincerity than Nicholson.‐ Newsweek

63% Kansas City (1996) Altman loves to explode movie genres, and his script, co-written with Frank Barhydt, fuses the classic '30s screwball comedy and crime film.‐ Newsweek

93% Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) This friendliness is the key emotion in this clean, clever, entertaining movie by a gifted and developing artist. It's a feeling that crackles in the sensational special effects.‐ Newsweek

39% 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) Here's a one-word review of 1492: hubris.‐ Newsweek

97% Babe (1995) It has a surprising charm.‐ Newsweek

72% Cop Land (1997) Mangold is something of a pseudo-Scorsese.‐ Newsweek

78% Braveheart (1995) Braveheart looks like a true epic -- even if it is both bloody and bloody long.‐ Newsweek

74% Eyes Wide Shut (1999) From the already famous 'mirror' love scene, played with a carnal sweetness that's rare in the brittle, cynical sexuality of film today, to the anger, fear and pain of their final confrontation, Cruise and Kidman are open and touching.‐ Newsweek

39% Black and White (2002) Maverick moviemaker James Toback (Two Girls and a Guy) has latched on to the most fascinating cultural phenomenon of the American moment.‐ Newsweek
