Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: In this installment, Tom Cruise's agent is tasked with penetrating the Kremlin and preventing World War III. The brilliantly constructed film is the best of the franchise thus far, stretching itself in ways that only new director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) might have thought of.

Shame: A sex-addicted New Yorker (Michael Fassbender) engages in a provocative push-pull with his needy, chancy younger sister (Carey Mulligan). Harrowing and heartrending, this is a film that feels akin to going into battle.
