3/5 72% Trumbo (2015) "Cranston is superb. The Breaking Bad actor, in best form, is an attack dog: he goes at lines like a mutt at a mutton bone. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 4, 2016

Posted Jan 29, 2016
4/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "As a press-exposé procedural, Spotlight has a verve often worthy of All the President's Men. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016

Posted Dec 30, 2015
3/5 99% Timbuktu (2015) "It's skilful, sardonic, honourably humane. Are those qualities, today, enough? " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 30, 2015
4/5 43% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "It's a Hollywood movie in the best sense, unsparing with spectacle, a-roar with conviction and cast, if not with superstars, then with voices and faces that become indelible. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 23, 2015
3/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) " I enjoyed the seventh Star Wars film more than any since The Empire Strikes Back and much more than - yes, reader, I was there, for this newspaper, reviewing it - the now 38-year-old saga start-up. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 16, 2015
3/5 65% Krampus (2015) "Krampus is a merry Christmas horror film that takes no prisoners but should hold willing audiences captive. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
5/5 81% Sunset Song (2016) "It could have been calamitous, this bizarro-Brechtian approach to a rural epic couched and conceived in the near-vernacular. Yet it's magical. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
4/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Bridge of Spies has some hold-ups and blockages. But in the best scenes the traffic flows fluently over the purling, perilous currents of cold war history. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Nov 26, 2015
5/5 98% Brooklyn (2015) "Brooklyn has an old-fashioned perfection so incandescent, and so winning, that it's almost spooky. It could have come from an alternative, postmodern universe. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Nov 5, 2015
5/5 96% Jafar Panahi's Taxi (2015) "An antic countercultural pageant, in which fact and fiction play musical passenger seats. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Oct 29, 2015
3/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) "If I feel I now know less about Jobs than I did before, that may be a good thing. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Oct 11, 2015
5/5 90% Mia Madre (2016) "Mia Madre is a triumph of tonal complexity. It's a funny tragedy, a serious comedy, a film about death that has its wake and eats it. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 24, 2015

Posted Sep 17, 2015
4/5 96% The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?) (2015) "Regina Casé is superb in the main role: dolorous, clucking, solicitous, dumbstruck, despairing; a mood for all seasons and every season, for character revelation, a high season. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 4, 2015
3/5 46% No Escape (2015) "Who are the rebels? What's their beef? Whom are they overthrowing? Never mind all that. Just feel the cinegenic gusts of panic, skilled story ploys and give-it-everything main performances. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 3, 2015
4/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) "The film is often hysterical in the best sense. Not just funny-hysterical, its script bubbling with bad-girl one-liners, but hysterical with an edge of funky, missionary outreach and outrage ... " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
5/5 82% Mistress America (2015) "It's funny, witty, joyous, mischievous and casually profound. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
5/5 93% Hard to be a God (2015) "The film is about observation: its powerless, farcical, unquenchable curiosity. And it's about - imagine a drama hewn from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle - how observers become actors or influencers, whether they want to or not. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 6, 2015
4/5 90% Amour Fou (2015) "The build-up scenes of talk and philosophising, in salons and sitting rooms, are hypnotic. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 4, 2015
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "I spent the first half hour wearing 3D glasses (available on a foyer stand) since I thought the film was in 3D as well as Imax. It isn't. But I didn't notice until I glanced round belatedly at un-spectacled colleagues. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 30, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Inside Out is animated cinema's brainstorm of the year, possibly the decade. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 80% Ant-Man (2015) "We start with carefree exhilaration. ... But - wages of bingemanship - we then proceed to boorish silliness and finally stupor. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 16, 2015
2/5 75% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Newcomer juvenile lead Taron Egerton -- handsome, bright, Welsh -- has promise. He should be moved in the direction of a good movie. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 13, 2015
4/5 90% Love & Mercy (2015) "Just when you feel "No, I can't take it" about another truth-based rock drama addressing the tears and horrors of fame - another Ray or Walk the Line (oh those poor singing millionaires) - along comes the best in memory. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 9, 2015
4/5 96% Amy (2015) "The speed of her fall now appears dizzying and terrible. Or was it rather the speed of her ascension? " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 2, 2015

Posted Jun 11, 2015
4/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) "This is as good as Jurassic cinema gets. Until it gets better next time. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 11, 2015
4/5 78% Queen and Country (2015) "It's a string of little jewels masquerading as a story. The army-life japes and escapades, climaxing in the stealing of an officers' mess clock, might seem picayune. But they form a cumulative glitter. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 5, 2015
93% An Inconvenient Truth (2006) "A Tantalus glimpse of what America might have been with a president who cared about the planet, its people and its peace. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
2/5 82% Keane (2005) "It is like bad Bresson, if that were a possibility. All signifiers and no meaning; all tics and no truths; all mute emoting and no emotion. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
34% Eros (2004) "How are the mighty scattered, fallen and lost. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
63% Clerks II (2006) "The emetic outpouring of buddy love in the last reel deserves the adults-only certificate that the rest narrowly escapes. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
3/5 59% The Emperor's New Clothes (2015) "Brand engages in Socratic dialogues with children, who fully support his contention that cleaning ladies are badly paid compared with the executives of multinational corporations. Nonetheless, he is basically right. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Apr 25, 2015
2/5 43% A Little Chaos (2015) "Rickman grazes past things of substance but can't overcome the sense that he's really in it for the dressing up. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Apr 17, 2015

92% Children of Men (2006) "P.D. James's novel must have made more sense than Cuarón's cheerful but incoherent screen adaptation. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Apr 1, 2015
4/5 95% Wild Tales (2015) "Filmmaker Damián Szifrón must have had a difficult childhood. Or else he just loves - don't we all? - dark stories in which logic is an extension ladder from Earth to Hell. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 27, 2015
4/5 86% A Brilliant Young Mind (2015) "A clever, imaginative, supple movie, true to itself in spirit and essence, even when straying from strict itineraries. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 12, 2015
4/5 88% Still Alice (2015) "Moore's own face starts to become as bare a cupboard as her mind. It's more than the no-make-up look. First, lines of doubt and fear map her face. Then starts to come a blankness like infantilism. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 5, 2015
4/5 31% Chappie (2015) "So kinetic, so captivatingly crackerjack that attention deficit is no danger for the audience even if it is for the artist. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 5, 2015
5/5 89% Catch Me Daddy (2015) "The largely unknown cast's performances are exactly right: mimed distillations of moments of being and feeling. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 26, 2015
93% No Country for Old Men (2007) "The last word on the modern-day western used to be Peckinpah's. No Country for Old Men is Peckinpah gone post-Peckinpah. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 22, 2015
4/5 94% Love Is Strange (2014) "Molina and Lithgow are both superb: two crusty romantics searching for crumbs in a world, however well-meaning, that is too busy for love unless it comes tidy, manageable and vexation-free. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 12, 2015
3/5 51% The Interview (2014) "Everything it was cracked down to be. " ‐ Financial Times
