Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 89% The Messenger (2009) A worthy addition to the canon of Iraq war films, The Messenger has a gentle humanity that creeps under your skin. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 13, 2011
3/5 74% Norwegian Wood (2012) Murakami's 'unadaptability' for the screen is self-evident to fans of his books, but this is a noble if bleak first stab. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2011
4/5 64% Biutiful (2010) Iñárritu has made a modern classical tragedy and, in Javier Bardem, he has found his first authentic hero; a character caught up in an intricate web of events he cannot extricate himself from. ‐ Empire Magazine

3/5 27% Charlie St. Cloud (2010) An adaptation that smooths out the sharp edges of Ben Sherwood's source novel, it's a decent enough vehicle to flaunt Efron's acting chops. ‐ Empire Magazine

2/5 70% Enter the Void (Soudain le vide) (2010) Painting from a typical kaleidoscopic canvas Noé crafts a brain-bendingly metaphysical trip that definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Sep 22, 2010
3/5 73% Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (2011) Eric Elmosnino is terrific as the louche French icon in Joann Sfar's vivid biopic. Shame about that second hour. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2010
4/5 75% Greenberg (2010) Like a lot of human relationships Greenberg is complicated, infuriating, good-hearted, funny, often painful, and well worth the effort. A sad little movie but also a great one, lit by two astonishing central performances. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 8, 2010
4/5 55% The Killer Inside Me (2010) As darkly disturbing as Jim Thompson's novel, this is a genuinely upsetting film that might also be Winterbottom's best. Not for everyone, but near-faultless all the same. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jun 2, 2010
2/5 69% Life During Wartime (2010) Possibly a brave and interesting triumph for its director, but definitely a cold-eyed heartless bore for his audience. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Apr 22, 2010
4/5 65% Youth in Revolt (2010) It's chaotic and episodic, but this is Cera's star turn. Superbad meets Fight Club? That'll do it. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 5, 2010
4/5 97% A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010) A modern French crime epic where the smudges and crossings out do not diminish the passages of great dreamlike power. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 22, 2010
3/5 42% The Limits of Control (2009) Cool, handsome, self-assured... but, as the existentialists might say, what's the bloody point? ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Dec 11, 2009
5/5 69% Synecdoche, New York (2008) Astonishing. Kaufman has surpassed himself with a film that will delight and confound. You will want to see it again. And again. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted May 15, 2009
3/5 69% American Teen (2008) Despite its flashy approach, American Teen remains emotionally involving because of the lives on show. You will care about these people, even if you suspect the director doesn't. ‐ Empire Magazine

4/5 80% Che: Part Two (Guerrilla) (2008) Like Guevara's slog through the Bolivian undergrowth, Che Part Two is a hallucinatory journey into the heart of darkness, defined by a performance of great presence. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 19, 2009
4/5 66% Che: Part One (The Argentine) (2009) Part One of Soderbergh's Che epic dismantles the clichés and myths to craft a dream-like if frustrating essay on the heroism and the claustrophobia of war, perfectly centred by a compelling star performance. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 5, 2009
3/5 51% What Just Happened? (2008) A playful industry satire made by victors. That's actually pretty cold when you think about it. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Nov 28, 2008
4/5 94% Juno (2007) A sharp-edged, sweet-centred, warm-hearted coming-of-age movie that's always just that little bit smarter than you think it is. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Feb 8, 2008
4/5 89% The Savages (2007) A richly nuanced American comedy, with two acting talents working at their absolute peak. ‐ Empire Magazine
Posted Jan 24, 2008
3/5 55% Mr. Brooks (2007) Although flawed, this remains a blackly funny noir treat thanks to Costner and Hurt's double-act. ‐ Empire Magazine
