The Science of Sleep (2006)

"Another comic love story that takes us inside a character's psyche, but Kaufman's rock-solid jokes are replaced by whimsy."

Los Olvidados (The Young and the Damned) (1952)

"In [Bunuel's] vigorous storytelling, he not only finds forceful images in the drama's reality, but adds a dream sequence - a miniature masterpiece that, by itself, is reason enough to see the film."

Them (Ils) (2007)

"The nature of the couple's tormentors makes the action scarier than it would have been with, say, a supernatural monster, but it also represents a cheap and nasty move by Moreau and Palud."

Lives of the Saints (2007)

"Not every turn in the story is well judged, but what's more damaging is that the film's general aura is not sufficiently powerful."

The Fountain (2006)

"I've sat through lots of navel-gazing movies that would have been vastly improved by the addition of some 16th-century conquistador action; Aronofsky's film is still a bore, Its ideas and images too airy-fairy to have emotional force."

Bobby (2006)

"If Estevez's drama had been as strong as [RFK's] speech, Bobby would have been a far better film."

Old Joy (2006)

"A surprising denouement provides poignancy, repaying the goodwill the film inspires through its mellow combinations of music and imagery."

Blood Diamond (2006)

"The best thing about it is the convincing acting by DiCaprio and Hounsou."

Venus (2006)

"Like a variation on Death in Venice, only this could be Death in Kentish Town."

Casino Royale (2006)

"This is a prototype Bond we have never seen before. It seems we have underestimated you, Mr Craig."
