2/5 89% Séraphine (2009) "Depends on your levels of Christmas spirit. Nativity either glorifies the charming amateurishness of the British school play or celebrates the slapdash incompetence of the British film industry. " ‐ Film4

2/5 45% Glorious 39 (2009) "Poliakoff's flaccid script and indulgent cut undermines a beautifully shot thriller with an excellent cast and original central idea. " ‐ Film4
Posted Nov 20, 2009
3/5 98% The Devil Came on Horseback (2007) "The Devil Came On Horseback sets out to shock. The images caught by Steidle's camera will stay with you long after his personal story - given too much time in relation to events - has faded from memory. " ‐ BBC.com

2/5 22% Never Back Down (2008) "Come back Mr Miyagi, all is forgiven. " ‐ BBC.com

4/5 86% 2 Days in Paris (2007) "A playful comedy, which shows off a wicked sense of humour and a real understanding of relationships. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Aug 31, 2007
4/5 85% The Hoax (2007) "A tremendous shaggy dog story that bounds capably between comedy and tragedy. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Jul 31, 2007
3/5 74% The Illusionist (2006) "Not everyone will be taken in by the plot's final twist, but even if you guess how Eisenheim does it, you'll be won over by his showmanship. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Feb 27, 2007
2/5 94% My Name Is Albert Ayler (2008) "An interesting history of a leading figure in an important American artform. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Feb 9, 2007
3.5/5 76% Rocky Balboa (2006) "If geriatric turtles and a dead wife sound like a slow start, that's the point. Rocky films are essentially exercises in delayed gratification. " ‐ Film4

3/5 90% Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006) "...Neil Young has experimented with film many times, but this is by far the most accessible cinematic treatment of his music; a troubadour at the top of his game. " ‐ BBC.com

Posted May 6, 2006
5/5 89% The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2006) "Rock 'n' roll's capacity for recycling legend means the stories of Johnston's life, and the way in which they're told, could easily fall into cliché. Instead they are original, engrossing and sometimes heartbreaking. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted May 6, 2006
3/5 72% Only Human (2006) "An energetic, colourful farce that attempts, in its own small way, to figure out why people find it so hard to live in harmony. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Jan 7, 2006
3/5 95% The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill (2005) "In the spirit of all good documentaries, Wild Parrots transcends its ostensive subject. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Dec 6, 2005
2/4 36% Niagara Motel (2006) "Yates has given himself so many stories to tell here that his only plausible excuse for Niagara Motel's total lack of dramatic tension or laughs is a script that fails to include a solitary good line. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Dec 6, 2005
2/5 89% William Eggleston in the Real World (2005) "As a subject, he's reluctant to navel gaze, and his words -- subtitled because of his low, mumbling speech -- rarely provide an insight into his talent. " ‐ BBC.com
Posted Dec 6, 2005

Posted Jun 21, 2005
3/5 89% Machuca (2004) "An eloquent and moving take on the tragedy of a society that attacks its own and successfully humanises difficult ideas of political and class loyalty. " ‐ BBC.com
