3/5 90% The Messenger (2009) " A worthy addition to the canon of Iraq war films, The Messenger has a gentle humanity that creeps under your skin." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 13, 2011
3/5 74% Norwegian Wood (2012) " Murakami's 'unadaptability' for the screen is self-evident to fans of his books, but this is a noble if bleak first stab." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2011
4/5 64% Biutiful (2010) " Iñárritu has made a modern classical tragedy and, in Javier Bardem, he has found his first authentic hero; a character caught up in an intricate web of events he cannot extricate himself from." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 26, 2011
3/5 27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) " An adaptation that smooths out the sharp edges of Ben Sherwood's source novel, it's a decent enough vehicle to flaunt Efron's acting chops." — Empire Magazine
Posted Oct 6, 2010
2/5 72% Enter the Void (Soudain le vide) (2010) " Painting from a typical kaleidoscopic canvas Noé crafts a brain-bendingly metaphysical trip that definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2010
3/5 73% Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (2011) " Eric Elmosnino is terrific as the louche French icon in Joann Sfar's vivid biopic. Shame about that second hour." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2010
4/5 75% Greenberg (2010) " Like a lot of human relationships Greenberg is complicated, infuriating, good-hearted, funny, often painful, and well worth the effort. A sad little movie but also a great one, lit by two astonishing central performances." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 8, 2010
4/5 54% The Killer Inside Me (2010) " As darkly disturbing as Jim Thompson's novel, this is a genuinely upsetting film that might also be Winterbottom's best. Not for everyone, but near-faultless all the same." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 2, 2010
2/5 69% Life During Wartime (2010) " Possibly a brave and interesting triumph for its director, but definitely a cold-eyed heartless bore for his audience." — Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 22, 2010
4/5 66% Youth in Revolt (2010) " It's chaotic and episodic, but this is Cera's star turn. Superbad meets Fight Club? That'll do it." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2010
4/5 97% A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010) " A modern French crime epic where the smudges and crossings out do not diminish the passages of great dreamlike power." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 22, 2010
3/5 44% The Limits of Control (2009) " Cool, handsome, self-assured... but, as the existentialists might say, what's the bloody point?" — Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 11, 2009
5/5 68% Synecdoche, New York (2008) " Astonishing. Kaufman has surpassed himself with a film that will delight and confound. You will want to see it again. And again." — Empire Magazine
Posted May 15, 2009
3/5 70% American Teen (2008) " Despite its flashy approach, American Teen remains emotionally involving because of the lives on show. You will care about these people, even if you suspect the director doesn't." — Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 6, 2009
4/5 80% Che: Part Two (Guerrilla) (2008) " Like Guevara's slog through the Bolivian undergrowth, Che Part Two is a hallucinatory journey into the heart of darkness, defined by a performance of great presence." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 19, 2009
4/5 66% Che: Part One (The Argentine) (2009) " Part One of Soderbergh's Che epic dismantles the clichés and myths to craft a dream-like if frustrating essay on the heroism and the claustrophobia of war, perfectly centred by a compelling star performance." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 5, 2009
3/5 51% What Just Happened? (2008) " A playful industry satire made by victors. That's actually pretty cold when you think about it." — Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 28, 2008
4/5 94% Juno (2007) " A sharp-edged, sweet-centred, warm-hearted coming-of-age movie that's always just that little bit smarter than you think it is." — Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 8, 2008
4/5 89% The Savages (2007) " A richly nuanced American comedy, with two acting talents working at their absolute peak." — Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 24, 2008
3/5 55% Mr. Brooks (2007) " Although flawed, this remains a blackly funny noir treat thanks to Costner and Hurt's double-act." — Empire Magazine
