"As Adam pursues his doppelganger across a Toronto of sleek, soulless high-rises, director Denis Villeneuve throws in puzzlingly surreal touches ... What on earth - or, more likely, the subconscious - is going on? "
The Face of Love (2014)
Get On Up (2014)
"Chadwick Boseman is electrifying as Godfather of Soul James Brown in this daringly offbeat biopic, which matches its subject's brass-necked, go-for-broke audacity with its own bold cinematic risk-taking. "
The Homesman (2014)
Are You Here (2014)
"Wilson and Galifianakis are very much playing to type as slick charmer and manic weirdo, but the movie around them is much less predictable, veering off in strange directions and never finding a consistent tone. "
What We Do In The Shadows (2015)
I Can't Think Straight (2008)
My Old Lady (2014)
"Just when you think the story is going to proceed on a well-worn, cosily romantic track, its characters unpack their emotional baggage, revealing unexpected depths of hurt and taking the film into bittersweet dramatic territory. "
"With one more film to go, it's clear that the filmmakers are saving their big guns, and big battles, for next year's finale. For the most part, this penultimate episode is dour, dark and talky: jaw, jaw rather than war, war . "
The Kreutzer Sonata (2009)
Immortal Beloved (1994)
The Drop (2014)
"Making his debut as a screenwriter, Lehane blends gritty urban noir with a fable-like story of sin and redemption. With Roskam keeping a firm grip on the twisty plot while sustaining a claustrophobic atmosphere, it's a surprisingly successful mix. "
The Imitation Game (2014)
Third Person (2014)
"Haggis tips his hand too obviously while delivering his narrative sleights and feints, and he piles on the symbolism rather blatantly, too, but his actors are so compelling that the film's individual scenes mostly come off. "
Begin Again (2014)
Mr. Turner (2014)
The Skeleton Twins (2014)
Set Fire To The Stars (2015)
"When it comes to Thomas himself, despite Jones's spirited performance, the film doesn't succeed in bottling lightning. There are flashes of the poet's genius amid the boozy windbaggery, but the demons that drove him remain elusive. "
The Anomaly ()
Love, Rosie (2015)
Cold in July (2014)
The Maze Runner (2014)
The Duke Of Burgundy (2015)
"With O'Connell's arresting lead performance backed by a gritty supporting cast, '71 marks an impressive feature debut from director Yann Demange, who uses jittery hand-held cameras to give the action cinema verité urgency and immediacy. "
The Other Woman (2014)
"This could have been a crowd-pleasing tale of female solidarity and revenge along the lines of Nine to Five. Instead, thanks to tissue-thin characters, lame slapstick and excrementally bad gross-out comedy, it proves to be a glossy mess. "
"Smetto Quando Voglio is both a skilfully plotted farce and a penetrating satire of a society that has Latinists working as petrol-pump attendants and where out of work professors play down their academic pasts as regrettable youthful errors. "
"Opening explosively with a night-time all-female game of American football set to the hypnotically urgent electro-goth of Light Asylum's 'Dark Allies', Girlhood daringly stakes out new territory for French director Céline Sciamma. "
The Judge (2014)
"Robert Downey Jr and Robert Duvall are on such mesmerising, Oscar-baiting form in this old-school family melodrama cum courtroom cliffhanger that it's possible to pardon the film for being so clichéd and contrived. "
Gone Girl (2014)
In Secret (2014)
Fading Gigolo (2014)
"You wouldn't think that a comedy about a Brooklyn florist who becomes a professional gigolo could possibly be dull, especially one that holds out the prospect of a threesome involving Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara. "
Dracula Untold (2014)
Maps to the Stars (2015)
The Equalizer (2014)
What We Did on Our Holiday (2015)
"Engaging family comedy What We Did on Our Holiday sees the creators of Outnumbered repeating the BBC sitcom's winning mix of beleaguered parents, cute scene-stealing kids and spot-on observational humour with audience-pleasing results. "
