T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 89% Journal de France (2012) ... a greatest-hits slideshow of a career that clicks us from war-torn Paris to the Yemen, Haiti and Prague. Frequently fascinating, if a tad unfocused. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 83% The Double (2014) Building on his promising debut, Submarine, Richard Ayoade is emerging as a director of some talent. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight's beauty is that it shows how the parts of us hidden deep in darkness can still shine brightly. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 78% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) Dark, dreamy and romantic, this is a slow-burning delight full of quiet yearning and brittle passion. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 74% Populaire (2013) It takes a while to get going and the constant clack, clack, clacking can start to grate but Populaire is a warm and stylish film with plenty of polished charm. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 98% Before Midnight (2013) Beautifully bittersweet, gloriously funny and achingly real; the older Jesse and Céline get, the more likeable they become. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 79% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) Juddering shots with muted colours are set against Mike Patton's haunting score, which makes for a dreamy, visually striking film. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 69% Stoker (2013) Stoker is a brilliantly inventive Gothic fairy tale gone wrong, with devilish shades of Hitchcock. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 89% Fire In The Blood (2013) And while the narration is a touch on the dry side, Fire in the Blood will certainly fuel anger in your veins. - Metro (UK) EDIT

11% Grace Of Monaco (2014) You never buy you're watching anyone other than Nicole Kidman. She's less tragic princess and more Stepford wife. - Metro (UK) EDIT

2/5 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) Efron fans will be happy to know that he gets his kit off. For the rest of us, this is one awkward moment best forgotten straightaway. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 99% Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2012) It's a simple tale, but one to savour. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 92% Ponyo (2009) Forget 3D or CGI: if you really want to be dazzled at the cinema, pay a visit to Hayao Miyazaki's hand-drawn fantasy world. - Metro (UK) EDIT

2/5 75% Tony (2009) This serial killer flick is about as illuminating and, at times, as unintentionally hilarious as an episode of EastEnders with the succession of working-class stereotypes it throws up. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 97% A Prophet (Un prophete) (2010) Steeped in a chilling sense of social realism and the grim cynicism of everyday life, this epic tour de force is a quietly enthralling study of one man's rise to power. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 58% It's Complicated (2009) It's [Streep's] chemistry with Baldwin that lifts this predictable and repetitive, if solidly entertaining, chick flick to another level. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 48% Taking Woodstock (2009) There are flashes of wildly entertaining humour but for the most part the film keeps its chuckles on the gentler side of funny. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 51% The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009) A quirky cross between Star Wars, X Files and Apocalypse Now, brimming with imagination and a wickedly black sense of humour. - Metro (UK) EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 6, 2009
2/5 36% Gigantic (2009) Fluctuating wildly between wry ironic chuckles and a sombre indie romantic drama, this never quite hits the right balance tonally. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 82% Two Lovers (2008) Although at times Phoenix's impression of an overgrown Kevin the Teenager threatens to derail the film's subtlety, it still makes for a satisfying swansong if this really is to be his final film. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 93% Milk (2008) An intelligent and powerful movie about an inspirational life. - Metro (UK) EDIT
