2/5 42% Closer To The Moon (2015) "It has some moments that effectively convey the weirdness with which it deals; but for the most part it's a missed opportunity, marred by a lack of narrative conviction and tonal cohesion. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 9, 2015
3/5 71% Brand: A Second Coming (2015) "Whether you like or loathe the man, this chaotic foray into his chaotic world has interesting things to say, not just about Brand and his fame, but about a personality type in which many will recognise aspects of themselves, or of people they know. " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 19, 2015
3/5 63% Howl "The black humour hits home without breaking the tension, while the gore - as one might expect given Hyett's background in makeup effects - is grimly convincing. " ‐ The List
Posted Oct 13, 2015
3/5 71% Just Jim "Roberts shows more than enough skill in the film's better sequences to make his future efforts well worth keeping an eye out for. " ‐ The List
Posted Sep 21, 2015
3/5 86% 52 Tuesdays (2015) "Sophie Hyde's debut narrative feature is an unusual take on the 'issue film', which impresses by favouring intimacy, whimsical humour and spiky, inconsistent emotions over preaching. " ‐ The List
Posted Aug 3, 2015
3/5 71% Welcome to Me (2015) "Wiig's wearying brand of deadpan zaniness seems to work for a lot of people, but here it's stretched to its thinnest. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 23, 2015
4/5 88% Last Days In The Desert "McGregor's dual role allows him to play to his strengths - open-faced amiability as Yeshua, and glinty mischief as the rather sympathetic Devil figure - and Hinds is marvellous. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 22, 2015
4/5 75% The Hallow (The Woods) (2015) "Should be sought out by genre fans who like to cast their nets beyond Hollywood. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 19, 2015
3/5 79% Cop Car (2015) "A knowing exercise in audience manipulation that has some impressive sequences, but always feels rather more show-offy than sincere, lacking the tightness and wit that could have made it a minimalist triumph. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 18, 2015
4/5 89% Spring (2015) "The two lead performances are delightful, as is the allegory the film spins about what love requires of us, and what it means to accept someone entirely. " ‐ The List
Posted May 18, 2015
3/5 64% We Are Monster "We Are Monster deserves note for its spirited rejection of the obvious, naturalistic narrative path, and Simon Richards' cinematography has considerable style and elegance. " ‐ The List
Posted Apr 27, 2015
2/5 20% Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015) "Anthony Hopkins adds a nice dose of screen presence as the titular Mr Heineken, but it's hard not to feel that this victim deserved to be at the centre of a more interesting crime. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 30, 2015
3/5 82% Dior and I (2015) "A film that favours a subtle portrait of the demands of the creative process over scandal-sniffing or melodrama. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 23, 2015
3/5 32% Dark Summer (2015) "A fairly standard chiller with some above average ideas and decent scares. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 16, 2015
3/5 63% Hinterland "Macqueen has drive, sincerity and talent, and that this small-scale but elegant work could serve as an effective calling card for a significant future career. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 23, 2015
100% Maidan (2014) "One of this film's many intriguing aspects is the emphasis it places on the continuation of ordinary, busy, trivial life in the midst of a crisis -- as well as the adrenalised, carnival atmosphere that can accompany one. " ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Feb 20, 2015
3/5 89% Love Is All: 100 Years of Love & Courtship "There is a wealth of delightfulness here, even if the material can seem a bit random. " ‐ The List
Posted Feb 13, 2015
3/5 100% I am Yours (2014) "Anchored by a splendid lead performance from Amrita Acharia, but a little directionless otherwise ... " ‐ The List
Posted Jan 27, 2015
5/5 90% Guys and Dolls (1955) "An escapist, sing-along joy with a winning edge of grown-up wit, making for a perfect festive season night out for anyone fond of a splash of old-school style. " ‐ The List
Posted Dec 15, 2014
3/5 78% The Green Prince (2014) "Sketchy, overly simplistic, and invested to a rather tasteless extent in the Hollywood-friendly thrills and spills of its story. " ‐ The List

Posted Nov 4, 2014
3/5 92% The Case Against 8 (2014) "In terms of its cool handling of the legal and logical side of the argument, it offers a strong record of an inarguably significant human rights case. " ‐ The List
Posted Nov 3, 2014
5/5 97% Ghostbusters (1984) "It speaks to its entire audience, without ever seeming to joke over children's heads in a snide or overly knowing manner. " ‐ The List

Posted Sep 29, 2014
3/5 100% You and the Night (Les rencontres d'apr├Ęs minuit) "It's hard not to be a tiny bit enamoured of a film that starts out promising erotic depravity and ends up referencing John Hughes. " ‐ The List

Posted Sep 8, 2014
4/5 93% The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz (2014) "For balance, it could have done with more material from the people who put such extraordinary effort into prosecuting Swartz, but that isn't for want of trying: many declined to contribute. " ‐ The List

Posted Jun 23, 2014
4/5 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "Hoffman is a lovely fit as one of Le Carre's dilapidated, disappointed anti-heroes, whose post-ideological bafflement regarding the point of what he's doing feels wholly convincing. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 20, 2014
3/5 87% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "If some of the emotional cues are blunt, other story threads are sensitively developed, and the morality is nicely complex ... " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 20, 2014

Posted Jun 17, 2014
3/5 100% Of Horses and Men (2015) "One of the pleasures of this film is the extent to which the horses really do feel like part of the narrative. " ‐ The List
Posted Jun 17, 2014
3/5 61% Heli (2014) "If the story it tells about a contemporary Mexico mired in corruption and violence is a familiar one, it's still one of undeniable pertinence. " ‐ The List
Posted May 13, 2014
4/5 74% Concussion (2013) "The film's unpredictability and irrepressible sense of humour ensure that it stays on the right side of the jaded cynicism that afflicts so many US indies set amid this sort of moneyed dissatisfaction. " ‐ The List
Posted May 13, 2014
4/5 77% Tom at the Farm (2015) "It looks darkly lovely, its performances are fiercely charismatic, and its examination of the ways in which fear, deceit, violence and desire can mingle is insightful and intriguing. " ‐ The List
Posted Apr 9, 2014
4/5 77% The Robber (2011) "For those who prefer a bit of existential vagueness to being led by the nose, this is a thought-provoking as well as a technically impressive piece of work. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 18, 2014
2/5 82% The Unknown Known (2014) "Revealing of a near-psychotic self-assurance, but doesn't make for a very nuanced or enlightening film. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 13, 2014
2/5 33% Back to the Garden "The best one can say is that it was probably fun being in it, and what it's doing getting released in cinemas is anyone's guess. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 10, 2014
3/5 91% Suzanne "By skittering too quickly through its protagonist's life, Katell Quillevere's film fails to deliver the intimacy that its title seems to promise. " ‐ The List
Posted Mar 10, 2014

Posted Feb 14, 2014

Posted Feb 14, 2014

Posted Jan 21, 2014
3/5 65% Bastards (2013) "Denis' ensemble cast takes its collective endeavour admirably seriously, and there are moments of great visual beauty, but the intensity that the story shoots for is lacking, and the ultimate effect confusing and somewhat empty. " ‐ The List
Posted Jan 13, 2014
99% Wadjda (2013) "Haifaa al Mansour's debut merits recognition for its fresh-feeling take on the trope whereby the travails of a child protagonist mirror those of a wider society. " ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Dec 10, 2013
3/5 88% Fill the Void (2013) "In the end, it's hard to determine whether Burshtein is celebrating or critiquing the insularity and strict traditions of the community that she herself joined in her 20s - but presumably that's part of the point. " ‐ The List
