4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) It probably doesn't pay to examine the logic of A Quiet Place too closely but it is highly effective as an exercise in terror and in how people live with the realisation that one noisy false move could spell disaster.‐ Daily Express (UK)

Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2018
3/5 84% Ghost Stories (2018) Ghost Stories piles on the atmosphere as things go bump in the night, demons crawl out of pitch-black woods and inanimate objects take on a life of their own.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) Some of the detail about Felt's private life feels like a distraction but this is mostly a solid, absorbing political drama.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 88% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) Desplechin allows the search for lost times to unfold with a light touch, a vivid sense of Paris in the 1980s and 1990s, and a cast who bring freshness and vitality to the most familiar ingredients of a first great love. It has been well worth the wait.‐ The List
