78% 1408 (2007) " It all rather sidesteps the question of why reluctant manager Samuel L. Jackson fails to demand a written disclaimer from a guest insisting on a room that has seen 56 deaths, including drowning in chicken soup." — Financial Times

78% Sparkle (2010) " Inertly plotted, haltingly paced, further embarrassed by Bob Hoskins in shyly lovesick mode, this broken-backed mess is fitfully illuminated by Anthony Head in a camp turn and the American Stockard Channing, her style as immaculate as her English accent." — Financial Times

Posted Aug 17, 2007
94% The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) " A rattling yarn exuberantly told, crunchingly violent but not too sadistic." — Financial Times
Posted Aug 17, 2007
4/6 80% Son of Man (2006) Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
63% Johanna (2006) " The cinematography of Mátyás Erdély and András Nagy creates a nightmare subterranean world whose images linger after the sound and the (not very furious) fury have died away." — Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
60% Ciao Manhattan (Edie in Ciao! Manhattan) (1972) " Two attempts at a movie spliced uneasily into one." — Time Out
