    Welcome to the first annual indieWIRE film critics' poll. If you're experiencing deja vu, it's because this national survey is a direct descendant of the Village Voice poll, which I conducted from 1999 to 2005 ("Take One" through "Take Seven") with the help of my former colleagues J.

    CRITICS' POLL '06 | The Comments: The Best, From Mr. Lazarescu to Mr. Eastwood

    In a year where many movies barely skimmed the surface, "The Death of Mr. Lazarescu" got under my skin.
