100% Elle "Suspenseful and unsettling from first frame to last ... " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 22, 2016
100% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) "With unpretentious poetry to spare, Dutch illustrator and animator Michael Dudok de Wit winningly expands to feature length the verve that has been evident in his award-winning short films for two decades. " ‐ Screen International

67% Two Lovers and a Bear "A rewarding take on coupledom told with satisfying visual flair. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 18, 2016
No Score Yet My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) "Sustains a tone that acknowledges that life is a blend of good news and bad but that kindness and compassion can cut through a great deal of soul-crushing adversity. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 15, 2016
No Score Yet Dogs (Câini) "Mirica makes a very assured feature debut, juggling an accretion of sinister clues and slow-burn allegiances at a low-key pace kept humming thanks to attention-getting widescreen panache. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 15, 2016
No Score Yet Like Crazy (La pazza gioia) "This is a crowd-pleasing bittersweet comedy in which tragic circumstances are attenuated by moral support from unusual quarters. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 15, 2016
No Score Yet Victoria "In Bed with Victoria (Victoria) has its moments but too often falls short of the "oomph" that renders a comedy special. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 12, 2016
3.5/5 100% Ilo Ilo (2014) "Nobody in Jiale's extended family is happy for long but neither are they miserable. The film achieves a quietly impressive balance as human behaviour swings from serious to funny and back again. " ‐
Posted May 3, 2016
94% The Measure of a Man (La loi du marché) (2016) "An unflinching look at deteriorating working -- and non-working -- conditions for the common man and woman in contemporary France. " ‐ Screen International

Posted Mar 23, 2016
95% Marguerite (2016) "Despite its running time, the film's suspense lasts until the final frames. The musical score -- both on-and-off key -- is splendid. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Mar 8, 2016
42% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "What's on screen is, for the most part, both suspenseful and entertaining if comfortably familiar. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jan 28, 2016
80% Evolution "A sustained visual tour-de-force that's the opposite of a popcorn movie. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 14, 2015
71% Wolf Totem (2015) "Jean-Jacques Annaud adds another visually bold adventure tale to his filmography with Wolf Totem. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 9, 2015
100% Elle L'adore (2015) "First-time director Jeanne Herry delivers a sardonic comedy propelled by spot-on performances in Elle l'adore. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Aug 31, 2015
91% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) "A Frencher-than-French tale of deeply-anchored yet partially thwarted romance, Arnaud Desplechin's My Golden Days is touching, involving and very well acted. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jul 20, 2015
79% 24 Days (2015) "Alexandre Arcady's film is wrenching and politically astute. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 20, 2015
24% Dark Places (2015) "Audiences who like twisty narratives laced with wrenching revelations should be pleased with this satisfyingly downbeat thriller. " ‐ Screen International

Posted Feb 17, 2015
71% Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles (2014) "Assembled with flair, Magician: The Astonishing Life And Work Of Orson Welles is a lively and entertaining documentary that positively swings with informative forward momentum. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 9, 2014
3.5/5 94% Whiplash (2014) "Chazelle finds the cinematic equivalent of the white hat/black hat showdown in a classic Western but imbues it with equal parts physicality and intellectual grit. " ‐
Posted Oct 16, 2014
3.5/5 52% Saint Laurent (2015) "It's said that one must suffer to be beautiful. Thrilling in places, self-indulgent in others, Saint Laurent strongly suggests that one must suffer to make others beautiful. " ‐
Posted Oct 16, 2014
3.5/5 88% The Immigrant (2014) "Just about everybody in The Immigrant may have misplaced their copy of the Declaration of Human Rights, but a perfectly sung operatic note needs no administrative documents to work its magic. " ‐
Posted Sep 11, 2014
45% Yves Saint Laurent (2014) "Yves Saint Laurent does an effective job of condensing two decades in the life of the justly celebrated clothing designer into a series of pithy vignettes carried along by genuine emotion and a superb central performance. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 23, 2014
4.5/5 91% Nebraska (2013) "If you see only one black and white film disguised as a road movie this year or next, make it Nebraska. " ‐
Posted Feb 28, 2014
80% Minuscule - La vallée des fourmis perdues (Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants) (2015) "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
62% L'écume des jours (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 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. " ‐
Posted Oct 25, 2012
3/5 74% 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. " ‐
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. " ‐

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. " ‐
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. " ‐
