Film critic David Edelstein lists his top movies of 2004, and recommends current holiday releases. Edelstein says 2004 saw some high-profile winners -- and losers hit the nation's big screens.

Edelstein says there were some great performances in some not-so-great movies. This was a year of documentaries, some of which proved politically divisive. David Edelstein is also a film critic for Slate.

Other movies of note for 2004:

Spanglish

The Aviator

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster

End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones

Infernal Affairs

Goodbye Dragon Inn

Moolaadé

Vera Drake
