Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 96% Wildlife (2018) She's a woman out of time, and Ford's story, written 30 years ago, set 60 years ago, is strikingly resonant.‐ Time Out

4/5 72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) A beautifully staged film with everything is in its place, this is both an affectionate homage and a timely commentary, falling only slightly short of its own ambition. Classy pulp fiction.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 71% Final Score (2018) Dave Bautista goes full Van Damme in a Sudden Death -alike action movie that's better than it has any right to be‐ Time Out

4/5 94% Sicilian Ghost Story (2017) Bewildering in all the right ways, this is a poetic, sublime interpretation of a sorry story. An evocative, emotional experience, it pits humanity against inhumanity, resulting in something refreshingly new.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 71% Adrift (2018) To adopt the old cliché, the ocean isn't just a character in this film - it's the best one.‐ Time Out

2/5 71% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) Saucy and silly, L'Amant Double is a disappointingly superficial romp, with interesting psychological potential squandered by B-movie levels of nonsense. Identity crises all round.‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 85% My Friend Dahmer (2017) A small, slight window into a mixed-up soul, this is more intriguing than engaging. Its restraint, though, is admirable, resulting in a mood-piece with an ongoing sense of unease.‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 No Score Yet Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Live In Copenhagen (2018) Nick Cave often looks like a healer, swooping about among the front-row faithful, a shaman in a sea of desperately reaching, lit-up hands. ‐ Time Out

4/5 82% Ghost Stories (2018) Not quite a terrifying thrill-ride, Ghost Stories is a creepy, disturbing ghost train with a beefier backbone than its source material, trading on tropes but still making your skin itch.‐ Empire Magazine

5/5 98% BPM (Beats Per Minute) (120 battements par minute) (2017) Fly on the wall filmmaking at its best, this is pure cinema - an enthralling, enveloping experience that seizes you fully, effortlessly mixing politics, sex, life, death and art.‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) The first hour is particularly noodly, presenting a lonely, isolated young Clapton finding solace in music.‐ Time Out

91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Everything is respected, but nothing is sacred. It's a sweeping gut-punch. How it deals with our own hopes and dreams for these characters, and how deep it cuts into existential concerns that drive us all - its effects will run around in the mind.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

3/5 85% Lost in Paris (Paris pieds nus) (2017) It's as infuriating as it is inventive, as it Just... Never... Stops. It is Paris Through the Looking Glass. ‐ Time Out

57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) It hardly stirs the heart, at least not as much as you feel it should have done. ‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) This film is a glorious carnival of nonsense.‐ GQ Magazine [UK]

4/5 86% American Made (2017) Cruise is as compelling as ever with charm to spare, and this is a ceaselessly entertaining, sometimes tense romp. Although it doesn't dig much below the surface.‐ Empire Magazine
