1/5 43% Electric Dreams (1984) " Shot by director Steve Barron in the style of a pop promo, Electric Dreams starts brightly but ultimately disintegrates." — Radio Times
Posted Apr 1, 2014
5/5 92% Shakespeare in Love (1998) " Taking the writing process behind Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as its inspiration, John Madden's follow-up to Mrs Brown combines contemporary humour with a convincing 16th-century setting." — Radio Times
Posted Feb 11, 2014
4/5 93% About a Boy (2002) " Genuinely funny and moving, this is both an endearing examination of masculinity and a challenge to male isolationism." — Radio Times
Posted Feb 10, 2014
5/5 88% American Beauty (1999) " British theatre director Sam Mendes made an astonishing film debut with this sublime black comedy about midlife crises." — Radio Times

3/5 43% To Rome with Love (2012) " Baldwin, Cruz and Davis shine in a farce that overstretches itself into bellylaugh hits, but also some satirical misses." — Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 9, 2012
9/10 82% De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone) (2012) " It is terribly intense, and French. There is no other way to describe it." — Movieline
Posted Sep 7, 2012
6/10 74% Hope Springs (2012) " The movie is an unsatisfying combination of touching and excruciating, and a large part of the problem stems from Frankel's attempt to hammer such serious and sensitive subject matter into a half-hearted comedy." — Movieline
Posted Aug 9, 2012
91% Crazy Heart (2009) " It's not possible to flaw Bridges here. Akin to Falstaff, the detail of his characterisation - from stagger to cough to swagger to song - is fascinating. But he needs more thorough contextualisation to fly." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 19, 2010
56% The Soloist (2009) " Wright's major mistake is the flashback to Nathaniel's background. Mundane, TV movie simplistic and, ironically, very middle-class patronising, it causes the film's trajectory to go limp." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 25, 2009
4/5 86% 500 Days of Summer (2009) " (500) Days of Summer is a great film - a step in genre and gender development that will be referenced for years to come. And aside from all that, it's really good fun." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 4, 2009
2/5 26% Land of the Lost (2009) " Neither conventional action-adventure or enough of an out-there pastiche, this really is the land of the lost." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 31, 2009
72% Sunshine Cleaning (2009) " Far from being a tragic grind, Sunshine Cleaning is one long, wonderful irony. It feels like a first film - delicate, fresh and female." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 3, 2009
3/5 76% The Young Victoria (2009) " Caught between real quality and heritage for export, the film falls between two disparate stools." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 7, 2009
2/5 68% Revolutionary Road (2008) " It leaves you feeling voyeuristically sullied; scrubbing the blood out of your mental carpet, privy to something simultaneously indulgent and inconsequential." — Little White Lies
Posted Jan 30, 2009
4/5 72% And When Did You Last See Your Father? (When Did You Last See Your Father?) (2008) " A bruising but rewarding experience." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 5, 2007
2/5 90% Michael Clayton (2007) " Think old chewing gum with a masculine flavour." — Little White Lies
