Posted Jun 21, 2013
95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) " A tremendous achievement for all involved." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 31, 2013
49% The Great Gatsby (2013) " Less is not more, more is more. Luhrmann's Great Gatsby embraces this notion as a reflection of its central character, and in this sense at least it is near-on perfect." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 23, 2013
87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) " Manages to appease lifelong Star Trek fans without alienating newcomers." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 8, 2013
78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " The perfect superhero movie." — Clothes on Film
Posted Apr 23, 2013
59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) " As patchy as a patchwork quilt, but equally pleasing to look at." — Clothes on Film
Posted Mar 3, 2013
90% Lincoln (2012) " The biggest compliment we can pay Joanna Johnston's costumes in Lincoln is that you hardly notice them. This is a far subtler film than you might expect." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jan 31, 2013
88% Django Unchained (2012) " A cruel but humorous tale of robust men and women defined by the myth of the 'Old West'." — Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 27, 2012
70% Les Misérables (2012) " Earnest enough to verge on parody, but so sumptuous most audiences won't care a jot." — Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 19, 2012
92% Skyfall (2012) " Skyfall could be the most enjoyable Bond yet. One thing's for certain; Bond has never scrubbed up better. Tom Ford now exists to make Daniel Craig suits." — Clothes on Film
Posted Oct 15, 2012
94% Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel (2012) " For Vreeland reality was merely the starting point on a far more delicious journey, the best of which is captured here in this excellent documentary." — Clothes on Film
Posted Sep 20, 2012
93% Looper (2012) " A mishmash of futuristic conventions and clichés cobbled together as something we have never quite seen before." — Clothes on Film
Posted Sep 13, 2012
88% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) " Exciting, audacious and thematically rich; Christopher Nolan refuses to play safe." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jul 20, 2012
64% Cosmopolis (2012) " An immaculate journey into weird." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jun 28, 2012

Posted May 28, 2012

Posted Apr 19, 2012
84% The Hunger Games (2012) " The film is aided immeasurably by Judianna Makovsky's costume design. Clothes are an intentional method of deciphering The Hunger Games' politics." — Clothes on Film
Posted Mar 26, 2012
66% The Woman in Black (2012) " Proof that frock coats and lace dresses really are terrifying." — Clothes on Film
Posted Feb 9, 2012
77% War Horse (2011) " Children and the elderly will love it." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jan 15, 2012
94% Hugo (2011) " A monument to wonder and excitement for all those still in knee socks or short trousers." — Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 22, 2011
93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) " Enjoyably daft fare with enough sci-fi tech and desirable clobber to keep you cooing until the credits." — Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 15, 2011
98% The Artist (2011) " If there is a more joyous film this year, we haven't seen it." — Clothes on Film
Posted Nov 24, 2011

Posted Oct 20, 2011

Posted Sep 8, 2011
83% Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) " A classy, very British affair." — Clothes on Film
Posted Sep 5, 2011

Posted Aug 14, 2011
79% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) " Taps into the idea that deep down we all want to dress up and play hero." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jul 24, 2011
74% Norwegian Wood (2012) " Beautiful and affecting, even if it does collapse under the weight of its own earnestness at times." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 26, 2011
33% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) " This saturated saga is dead in the water." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 16, 2011
60% Water for Elephants (2011) " Old fashioned and sentimental, Water for Elephants still has much to offer with its very readable costume design." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 9, 2011
86% Rabbit Hole (2010) " While it may be uncomfortable to watch, Rabbit Hole is nonetheless essential viewing." — Clothes on Film
Posted Feb 3, 2011
94% The King's Speech (2010) " A tender contemplation on duty and the crippling weight of expectancy." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jan 18, 2011
51% Tron Legacy (2010) " There are flourishes of brilliance, particularly in score, costumes and set design. However, this brilliance is often buried beneath messy, disjointed action sequences and a story that fails to make any sense at all." — Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 5, 2010
80% Catfish (2010) " A deftly clever commentary on the nature of identity and how it defines our role in society." — Clothes on Film
Posted Nov 18, 2010
—— Beyond Biba " One woman's extraordinary influence on popular culture." — Clothes on Film
Posted Nov 11, 2010
82% Dolores Claiborne (1995) " A patient and mature thriller featuring a protagonist fascinating in her agony." — Clothes on Film
Posted Sep 5, 2010
82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " Tarantino, without the extraneous dialogue." — Clothes on Film
Posted Aug 23, 2010
53% Knight & Day (2010) " Once you cotton onto the fact that you're watching 'Carry on Bourne', you might even enjoy it." — Clothes on Film
Posted Aug 4, 2010
99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " The best film Pixar have ever made." — Clothes on Film
Posted Jul 22, 2010

Posted May 13, 2010
3/5 63% Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) " Eighties nostalgia has never been so disgusting, or funny." — Clothes on Film
Posted May 10, 2010

Posted Jan 18, 2010

Posted Jan 4, 2010
4/5 87% Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) " An undeniably romantic tale of damaged goods finding love." — Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 8, 2009
4/5 75% The Road (2009) " Hillcoat took it as far as he dared and created a beautiful suffering; a film that somehow manages to be both unwatchable and unmissable at the same time." — Clothes on Film
Posted Nov 19, 2009
2/5 10% Saturn 3 (1999) " Saturn 3 remains a mere gender curio of the era. It's too rotten to be anything else." — Clothes on Film
Posted Nov 13, 2009
5/5 98% Chinatown (1974) " A landmark blend of acting, directing, structure and design. Chinatown is the greatest detective movie ever made." — Clothes on Film
