I don't really have time for an extensive write-up. The surprisingly charming Babe and my favorite Gilliam movie 12 Monkeys vie for movie of the year for me. It's a disgrace that Lelouch's brilliant Les Misérables, which is much more than yet another adaptation of the novel, is virtually impossible to see in English or, indeed, at all. We get the first and last really good movies so far from both Bryan Singer and Mathieu Kassovitz, and the final directorial collaboration to date from Caro and Jeunet. Jarmusch moves to the second phase of his career, the phase of the odd genre mash-up. Linklater releases the first film in his improbably great romantic trilogy. Not one but two compelling Scottish sword movies are released. Pixar makes its big splash. Fincher rebounds from Alien3 with the critically and popularly acclaimed Se7en. And more!

Babe (Chris Noonan)

12 Monkeys (Terry Gilliam)

Les Misérables (Claude Lelouch)

The City of Lost Children (Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet)

Dead Man (Jim Jarmusch)

La Haine (Mathieu Kassovitz)

Before Sunrise (Richard Linklater)

The Usual Suspects (Bryan Singer)
