Join Soundcheck all this week for a look back at the year in music, from Kanye’s comeback and indie-friendly Billboard charts to the revenge of “Ring nuts” and the farewell to soprano Joan Sutherland. Our annual Critics Week series returns, as some of our favorite guests review the big stories -- and offer their picks for the best of 2010. Today we look at the year in film with Slate.com critic Dana Stevens. We're also joined by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney who tells us about the art of the soundtrack. Plus: music critic Will Layman shares his top picks for the year in jazz music.
