3/5 86% Le refuge (Hideaway (Le refuge)) (2010) " It is undeniable that Ozon has an eye for emotion. His low-fi camerawork and pared-down cinematography keep a beautiful realism surrounding his characters." — What Culture

2/5 —— Isle Of Dogs " By the time the plot reached its ridiculous conclusion, I was resigned to sitting back and enjoying the absurdity of it all." — What Culture

5/5 97% Breathless (À bout de souffle) (By a Tether) (1961) " The film that launched the French New Wave, Breathless remains an outstanding testament to the great ideals of fun filmmaking that infused the movement." — What Culture

4/5 88% Delicatessen (1991) " Like a light-hearted Brazil it conjures up imagery of such impact, and such resonant subject matter that it will (...) affect audiences for generations to come." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
4/5 79% The Other Guys (2010) " The first 30 minutes of the film, where this concept is really milked to the max, easily makes for some of the funniest comedy of the year." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011

Posted Feb 1, 2011
4/5 87% Buried (2010) " The genius of this film is that it never once betrays its concept." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
4.5/5 96% Restrepo (2010) " Everything about the way this film is shot, edited and packaged scream of a desire to show the war exactly as it is." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
5/5 95% Mary and Max (2009) " Everyone and everything is bursting with a hyper-real life that is pitched perfectly to the tragi-comic tone of the story." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
4.5/5 95% The Arbor (2011) " This film, which may seem like a niche-interest documentary at first glance, is rich in structural and stylistic innovation of great importance to the genre." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
4/5 93% The Kids Are All Right (2010) " What it lacks in grandstanding and pandering to the 'issues', this film more than makes up for with its great story, rounded characters and genuine sense of fun." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
4/5 66% The American (2010) " If you want to see a carefully paced, well-designed and beautifully shot suspense-thriller that hits all of its marks, then you could do far worse than The American." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
2.5/5 64% Secretariat (2010) " Secretariat is cliched, unrealistic and predictable, but it will make you feel good" — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011

2/5 51% Tron Legacy (2010) " I'm not saying don't bother seeing it, because there's still some fun to be had from the swaggering, fragmented plot, I'm just saying that we deserved much better." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
2.5/5 58% It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010) " It's also a kind of two-dimensional romance, a kind of flippant look at life on a mental ward, and (...) kind of made me want to give Zach Galifianakis a hug." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
4/5 43% The Green Hornet (2011) " Gondry's biggest success is recognising that superheroes can still be funny, and embracing that in every part of this film." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
2/5 34% I Spit On Your Grave (2010) " Gory and violent without really hitting home in either a visceral or meaningful way, and there are chunks that are actually quite dull." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
2/5 46% Hereafter (2010) " So ridiculous was Hereafter that I laughed out loud several times at the ill thought-out, quasi-spiritualist philosophy it vomited from the screen." — What Culture
Posted Feb 1, 2011
3/5 71% Paul (2011) " A decent take on the usual Pegg/Frost bromance, and a welcome return to the level of geekery that plays to their strengths, Paul entertains without excelling." — What Culture
