What can I use to accompany a movie review?

I am writing a book of movie reviews. Hoping to sell to publishers but may self-publish. My question is about image use for the movies.

My goal is to, for each movie review, to include an image from the film (a single image, not montage or movie poster).
My understanding is that under "fair use" having a small portion of a copyrighted work used for illustration is allowable. But I want to make sure my Is are dotted and Ts crossed, so is it advisable to contact movie studios and copyright holders to request permission for each? Other steps I should take?
