5/5 100% The King and the Mockingbird (2014) yrical, satirical and hugely entertaining, it deserves a wider audience. Hopefully, with this welcome re-release, it will find one. - Time Out EDIT

3/5 79% Attila Marcel (2014) The offbeat comedy threatens to suffocate the film, seeping into every scene and nipping any attempts at characterisation or emotional resonance in the bud. - Time Out EDIT

2/5 64% Au bout du conte (Under the Rainbow) (2013) Jaoui's debt to Woody Allen is more glaring than ever: some of the characters are just a bundle of neuroses. - Time Out EDIT
