4/5 98% Rams (Hrútar) (2016) "Highly recommended. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 4, 2016
3/5 38% One & Two (2015) "It's like Terrence Malick were making a superhero origin story. The lack of explanation wouldn't be a problem if the ending didn't feel somehow predictable and lethargic, but the cast help make this watchable. " ‐ Guardian

78% Tallulah "Page and Janney have a pleasant, relaxed rapport with each other and are likeable enough presences to hang out with, but a lot of the business around their characters feels like padding to keep the two highest profile actors busy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 24, 2016
70% Swiss Army Man "By turns, enchanting, irritating, juvenile and yet oddly endearing ... " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 23, 2016
3/5 75% The Visit: An Alien Encounter (The Visit) "An amused but never mocking look at how we would handle things if beings from another planet landed on Earth. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 21, 2016

Posted Dec 31, 2015
No Score Yet Brozer "Once the collective drops the idea that they're making some kind of fiction film and the gears shift this into documentary territory, it improves considerably. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 21, 2015
77% The Falling (2015) "There are so many acute insights, striking images and impressive performances in it, not least from lead Maisie Williams, it's a tragic shame that elsewhere inexperience shows and the last 15 minutes devolve into a morass of melodramatic incident. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 15, 2015
3/5 29% Swung "This British drama takes an admirable risk in trying to make a serious film about the contemporary swinging scene without resorting to either juvenile sniggering or censoriousness. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Nuit de la Glisse - Don't Crack Under Pressure "Director Thierry Donard is a dab hand at all this, and knows how to package the thrill ride-alongs with synth-heavy music of wonder and little talking-head snippets of reflection from the athletes. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Dec 3, 2015
3/5 33% A Christmas Star "This Northern Ireland-set fable steals adroitly from all kinds of classic Christmas-themed movies - a bit of Miracle on 34th Street, a dash of Nativity!, a big dollop of It's a Wonderful Life, and so on. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Nov 12, 2015
4/5 86% Microbe and Gasoline "If this film were a person, you'd want to give it a big hug ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Nov 5, 2015
100% Kilo Two Bravo (2015) "It's a relief that one can report that, strictly in aesthetic terms, it is indeed a well-made piece of work, executed with better-than-average levels of craftsmanship. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 2, 2015
3/5 96% Black Souls (2015) "The film's long low hum of quiet pays off with an aptly shocking climax. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 29, 2015
3/5 84% Do I Sound Gay? (2015) "American writer-director David Thorpe turns the camera - or more importantly the microphone - on himself to create this engaging, lively documentary about gay identity. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 29, 2015
2/5 44% Maya The Bee Movie (2015) "As blandly export-friendly and culturally nonspecific as an airline meal. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 22, 2015
1/5 No Score Yet The Little Penguin: Pororo's Racing Adventure "The animation is plump, cuddly and candy-coloured. The voices are shrill. The plot is as thin as the polar ice cap after a heatwave. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 22, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Le talent de mes amis "The world probably doesn't really need another film about babyish blokes having midlife crises... but if you like that sort of thing, this specimen isn't half bad. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 16, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Chic! (2015) "However tempting it may be to salute any film audacious enough to punctuate its title, it must be conceded that Chic! doesn't deserve that punctuation mark. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 15, 2015
88% How to Dance in Ohio (2015) "A touching, gentle-hearted look at teenagers on the autistic spectrum preparing for their first formal dance, How to Dance in Ohio offers a refreshingly upbeat, even cheerful look at people and their families coping with the condition. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 13, 2015
95% The Russian Woodpecker (2015) "Chad Gracia's The Russian Woodpecker offers a wild ride through Ukrainian and Soviet history, from the famines of the early 30s through Chernobyl and up to the present-day war with Russia. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 12, 2015
3/5 100% Junun "It's an austere but stylishly packaged work, serious and respectful, which studies the performers as they play with mostly long unbroken takes that run through to the end of each song. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 9, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet Convenience "Effortlessly enjoyable to watch with its generous ration of good, genuinely funny dialogue, all finely delivered by a likable, tightly synchronised cast. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 1, 2015
3/5 80% Letters To Max "Rarefied but affecting ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 1, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet M.L.E. "Unfortunately, too many of the gags Warren throws splat against the wall, leaving a puddle of self-indulgence, overacting and irritating film-making tics. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 1, 2015
2/5 14% The Reflektor Tapes (2015) "As a piece of cinema, it's a doggedly indifferent work that tells us little about the music or the people who make it. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 24, 2015
3/5 47% Premature (2014) "Yes, it's predictably crude and juvenile, but in between the bodily secretion gags there's dialogue and performances that are genuinely funny. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 24, 2015
2/5 78% Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger (2014) "Dense thickets of information, told via rostrum-shot photos and documents plus angry mob's worth of witnesses, become a grind after a while, as does the trite guitar-led mystery music. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 23, 2015
91% One Floor Below "The film takes a character who would be merely incidental in a more conventional film and uses him to construct a poignant meditation on responsibility, guilt and community. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 16, 2015
80% Sleeping Giant "What's particularly admirable here is the way the cast and filmmakers illuminate not just the wit and charm of young men, but also the callow cruelty of youth. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 15, 2015
68% Miss You Already (2015) "Films about female friendship, that pass the Bechtdel test with such flying colors, are all too rare as it is. So it makes it even more of a pity to see this one, with its potential to be a Beaches for the selfie generation, fail to stick the landing. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 15, 2015
50% Homesick "The film goes so far out of its way to avoid seeming lurid or melodramatic it ends up being almost emotionally incomprehensible in its obliqueness. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Sep 14, 2015

Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/5 100% Containment (2015) "While the dialogue is tainted by a few panic-thriller platitudes, and it is clear first-time director Neil McEnery-West needs to work on coaxing the best from actors, this is a zippy, clean-cut work. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/5 95% How To Change The World (2015) "Even hardened whale-eating oil oligarchs are likely to be charmed by the idealism and smarts of these audacious activists. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3/5 No Score Yet The Taking "There are tacky touches here and there, but it's basically a watcher. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 3, 2015
3/5 90% Cartel Land (2015) "There's no doubting Heineman and his crew's audacity as they venture close to the line of fire, but the commitment to observing dispassionately at all times starts to feel a bit like a cop-out. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 3, 2015

Posted Sep 3, 2015
1/5 No Score Yet Zombie Fight Club (2016) "Apparently, this is a sequel to Chien's Zombie 108 which, according to reviews, is even nastier. Count me out. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Aug 27, 2015

Posted Aug 27, 2015
63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) "If the film fulfills its duty by providing emotionally the romcom equivalent of a money shot, it delays the gratification in interesting ways. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 21, 2015
85% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (Umi-gai Diary) "The result is an episodic, generous-spirited, pristinely shot and, quite frankly, somewhat dull effort. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 20, 2015
4/5 85% The Wolfpack (2015) "Too many questions are ultimately left unanswered, but it's a real kick ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 83% The Forgotten Kingdom (2014) "Some may find the end result a trifle predictable and too audience-pleasing in its final uplift, but for others that will be its unique selling point. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Aug 20, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet A Dozen Summers (2015) "At least it might work as inspiration for DIY film-makers to prove they could do better. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Aug 20, 2015
2/5 No Score Yet Pleasure Island "A subpar contribution to the genre quota, which will no doubt soon sink into on-demand distribution. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Aug 13, 2015
3/5 86% 52 Tuesdays (2015) "One can't but fail to be impressed with the film's commitment to investigate its issues with subtlety and frankness. " ‐ Guardian

5/5 94% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "It's morally complex and sometimes uncomfortably close to the bone, but also lushly bawdy and funny, and packaged together with an astonishing degree of cinematic brio by first-time writer-director Marielle Heller. " ‐ Guardian
