TOP FIVE

Current movies recommended by the Times:

1 The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - Four Academy Award nominees, including director Julian Schnabel (above right), crafted this surreal adaptation of an extraordinary memoir.

2 Honeydripper - Writer-director John Sayles spins a bluesy yarn set in 1950 Alabama, starring Danny Glover. Showing exclusively at Beach Theatre.

3 Juno - Ellen Page is delightful as a pregnant teenager seeking adoptive parents for her baby. Nominated for four Oscars, including best actress and picture.

4 There Will Be Blood - Daniel Day-Lewis is a Golden Globe winner and Oscar front-runner, playing a dastardly oil tycoon (as if there's any other kind). Nominated for eight Oscars, including best picture and actor.

5 The Bucket List - Oscar winners Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman lift a TV-movie premise to regal heights
