Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
4.5/5 92% Nebraska (2013) " If you see only one black and white film disguised as a road movie this year or next, make it Nebraska." — sbs.com.au
Posted Feb 28, 2014
—— Minuscule - La vallée des fourmis perdues (Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants) " A dialogue-free bug saga carried along by brilliant sound effects, an epic score and delightful animation in the service of an incredibly basic yet endlessly inventive story." — Screen International
Posted Feb 4, 2014
67% Mood Indigo (2014) " This over-eager approach will grow tiresome for many viewers but, in its defense, an overload of hand-made creativity feels a lot healthier than watching endless CGI or CGI + 3D assault one's retinas." — Screen International
Posted Apr 23, 2013
3/4 83% You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet! (2013) " It's, like, totally, like, "meta." Metaphorical, metaphysical. It's also pretty amusing." — Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 17, 2013
—— Liberation (1994) Variety
Posted Jan 22, 2013
5/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " A loving homage to everything from Frankenstein to Godzilla by way of cosy American suburbia circa the analogue era, Frankenweenie makes superb use of black-and-white and shades of grey, thoughtful lighting and an equally thoughtful musical score." — sbs.com.au
Posted Oct 25, 2012
3/5 75% The Intouchables (2012) " Is The Intouchables an enjoyable movie if you overlook a few potentially queasy-making scenes? Absolutely. Is it great filmmaking in the neighbourhood of art? Nope. " — sbs.com.au
Posted Oct 25, 2012
5/5 91% Holy Motors (2012) " After having seen thousands of films in my life, Holy Motors surprised me. I could not have guessed what might happen next at countless junctures and I consider that a very good sign." — sbs.com.au
Posted Aug 23, 2012
97% Ernest & Célestine (2014) " A delightful melding of visual style and narrative pirouettes." — Screen International
Posted May 25, 2012
71% Le magasin des suicides (The Suicide Shop) Screen International
Posted May 25, 2012
2.5/5 82% De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone) (2012) " The theme of reconciliation - between man and woman, father and son, brother and sister, man and animal - feels kind of perfunctory and over-reaching." — sbs.com.au
Posted May 22, 2012
3.5/5 94% Moonrise Kingdom (2012) " This jaunty romp, written by Anderson with Roman Coppola, is a delightful succession of sombre pronouncements and sight gags in the service of a tale with a bittersweet emotional core." — sbs.com.au
