4/5 56% Morrissey 25: Live (2013) "The mid stretch drags, but by the time the LA crowd hurtle stage-wards for a bullish 'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side', a(nother) career resurrection seems within his reach. " ‐ Total Film

4/5 88% Springsteen And I (2013) "You pity the kids of the more Boss-obsessed but there's pomposity-pricking humour and uplift here, too. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 30, 2013
3/5 86% The Conjuring (2013) "The drip-feed of old tricks and a slow-drifting camera combine to stoke our expectation. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 23, 2013
3/5 83% From Up On Poppy Hill (2013) "Goro's expressive artistry is fleet, fluent and tenderly affecting. With a worthy story, he might breathe the old man's rarefied air yet. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 18, 2013
2/5 63% Days of Grace (2015) "Starts with a bracingly stylised snarl and ends in a muddle. " ‐ Total Film

4/5 99% Wadjda (2013) "Al-Mansour carefully dodges easy uplift, but her message of hope to future generations of Saudi women is clear. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 9, 2013
5/5 95% The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle)(Every Man for Himself and God Against All) (1974) "Stories of humans raised in the wild range from Tarzan to Mama, but none compare to the resonance of Werner Herzog's 1974 film. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jul 3, 2013
4/5 74% The East (2013) "Another Brit hit, plus Batmanglij is beginning to show dash as director. The duo make a tight fist of hot topicality and high tension from an ideas-packed genre piece. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 17, 2013
3/5 48% Spike Island (2015) "Saggy but also energised and endearing. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 11, 2013
3/5 52% Thérèse (2013) "Without the presence of Tautou, this would be a dry heritage pic; with her, it brews a sense of enigma that just about saves the day. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jun 5, 2013
3/5 73% The Stone Roses: Made of Stone (2013) "Meadows' loving report on a "live resurrection" is indeed alive and passionate, until too many gaps render it less than godlike. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 29, 2013
96% Groundhog Day (1993) "MacDowell was never more convincing and Chris Elliott is a dry delight as her lens-man. Murray and movie, meanwhile, are a mutual godsend: Groundhog Day rescued his career from calcifying in self-caricature. " ‐ Total Film
Posted May 6, 2013
3/5 51% Promised Land (2013) "As a slice of rural Americana, Promised Land works. Then it turns into sticky apple pie, leaving only the feeling that you've been had. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 12, 2013
3/5 53% Oblivion (2013) "Intelligent, innovative and intimate sci-fi is always welcome, but Oblivion isn't quite it. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Apr 10, 2013
4/5 55% Post Tenebras Lux (2013) "Some metaphors score and some miss, but this is leap-of-faith cinema: the rewards entail some risks. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Mar 15, 2013
3/5 44% Breath Of The Gods (2014) "It lacks narrative momentum but not warm humour or extreme headstands: you won't need telling twice that certain moves are "definitely not for beginners". " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 17, 2013
4/5 86% Robot & Frank (2012) "It carefully exceeds expectation, helped in no small measure by Langella's wily, wistful lead. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 17, 2013
3/5 28% Broken City (2013) "City offers star power, dashes of dazzle and plenty of movie nods. But Hughes' thriller fails to locate a life of its own. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Feb 4, 2013
4/5 69% Stoker (2013) "Park Chan-wook brings operatic finesse to generic material in his tight-wound, wickedly weird US debut. And Mia Wasikowska nails it. " ‐ Total Film

4/5 100% Kovasikajuttu (The Punk Syndrome) (2012) "The directors' affecting yet non-sentimental verité approach suits the raw material, spurning 'expert' talking head commentary and letting the band speak (and scream) for themselves. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 25, 2013
4/5 94% I Wish (2012) "The plot meanders but Koreeda's hand is deceptively sure: the detours all add up in a climactic montage of gentle, effortless poignancy. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Jan 21, 2013

Posted Dec 17, 2012
4/5 81% The Impossible (2012) "Marshalling formidable technique and force of feeling, Bayona's tale of courage and empathy in the face of catastrophe fulfils his debut's promise, its harrowing conviction hammered home even harder by the spot-on casting. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 11, 2012
4/5 88% Neil Young Journeys (2012) "If this is raging against the dying of the light, long may he rage. " ‐ Total Film
Posted Dec 6, 2012
4/5 94% The Hunt (2013) "A taut, teasing study in sense and susceptibility, given ballast by a suitably shaken and shell-shocked lead turn from Mikkelsen. " ‐ Total Film

4/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) "Burton's finest, freshest film in ages is a welcome homecoming. You'd call it patchwork pastiche, if it weren't so zapped with energy, feeling and imagination. It's alive! " ‐ Total Film

Posted Sep 3, 2012
4/5 77% Take This Waltz (2012) "Some strained metaphors and character tics aside, this proves both Polley's perceptive eye and Williams' ability to explore life-scuffed emotions. Wry, risqué and real. " ‐ Total Film

Posted May 18, 2012
4/5 63% Faust (2013) "A sense-scrambling work that conjures images of indelible potency: you won't forget the dissection, the lyrical love scene, the pitiable homunculus, the chilling trek to hell or Adasinsky naked in a hurry. " ‐ Total Film
