Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
65% Trilogia: To livadi pou dakryzei (The Weeping Meadow) (2004) Angelopoulos has, irrespective of his own efforts, acquired a depth granted with age, sacrificing the striking clarity and precision of his earlier work for a contemplative freedom of movement.‐ Cinema Scope

89% Oki's Movie (2012) Happily, Oki's Movie not only sustains the pertinence of Hong's cinema but refracts it through an extra-cinematic device.‐ Cinema Scope

86% Essential Killing (2010) Quite literally, Gallo is the only reason to see Essential Killing, and it's that which guarantees the film's blessedly quick fade from our ever more cluttered horizons.‐ Cinema Scope

90% Lebanon (Levanon) (2010) For all its grim purposefulness Lebanon is aimless and adrift, its rigorous fidelity to its central gimmick -- and ultimately it is nothing more than this -- effacing any true contemplation of the experience, or the representation, of combat.‐ Cinema Scope

90% Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) Despite its well-learned manoeuvres, Martha Marcy May Marlene remains solidly within the genre territory... ultimately having little to say about its charged subjects beyond the sum of its largely well-turned effects.‐ Cinema Scope

79% Shame (2011) The real shame in all this is the misuse of Fassbender, who acts his stillborn role with fierce intensity and a flagellant's dedication.‐ Cinema Scope

82% Something in the Air (2013) Après mai grows larger, and closer, in the rearview.‐ Cinema Scope

93% Skyfall (2012) What ultimately hobbles Skyfall is its dramatic imbalance at both macro and micro levels.‐ Cinema Scope

34% Passion (2013) Despite the low vs. high dialectic, Passion is saying nothing of substance about cultural relativism or commodification.‐ Cinema Scope

98% Mud (2013) Mud feels thoroughly, depressingly familiar in nearly every one of its narrative, thematic, and dramatic beats, even if one can't place a precise predecessor.‐ Cinema Scope

86% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) The leadenness of the assorted would-be bon mots is equal to that of late-period Woody Allen (there's even an unfunny slap at Los Angeles), and not helped by their lugubrious delivery.‐ Cinema Scope

90% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) It's easier to evoke a cinematic tradition through a few italicized stylistic tendencies than it is to convincingly fabricate a modern masterpiece of European drama through a few lines of dialogue.‐ Cinema Scope

84% Silence (2017) Silence is Martin Scorsese's best film in 20 years.‐ Cinema Scope

93% No Country for Old Men (2007) The Coens have engineered a series of setpieces which, on technical merits, are pretty much peerless in light of any recent offerings.‐ Reverse Shot

93% A Touch of Sin (2013) It's that quality of directness, of purpose -- here particularly fierce purpose -- that gives Jia's plays with fiction and nonfiction both their vigour and their political perceptiveness and bite.‐ Sight and Sound

87% Exhibition (2014) Exhibition proclaims itself to be an assertively front-facing film: an object knowingly placed on view, inviting or challenging us to contemplate it from outside.‐ Sight and Sound
