The Greatest Movie Review in the History of the World
Well, maybe not, but it's the dearest to my heart, now that I've read it (two years after its publication, and now only because Paolo Bacigalupi happened to mention it).

Anthony Lane, in the New Yorker, puts it more eloquently than I ever could.
