Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 94% The Wife (2018) Slater gives what could have been a stereotypical role plenty of spark, and his scenes with Close are riveting.‐ Time Out

4/5 90% The Festival (2018) Like festivals themselves, this isn't for everyone, but if your ears are still ringing from a long weekend in a field, this is the summer silliness for you. ‐ Metro (UK)

2/5 48% The Meg (2018) The best way to watch The Meg is with a big box of popcorn and an ironic eye roll: it's clearly designed for distracted audiences, given that each key plot point is explained around four times. ‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 78% Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (2018) Westwood's loyalties feel torn and the fashion house is plunged into drama. It makes this the perfect film to double bill 'Phantom Thread' with. ‐ Time Out

4/5 88% Pin Cushion (2018) It's not always an easy watch but it's a sensitive, assured film with characters you'll warm to and root for. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2018
5/5 100% Leave No Trace (2018) A slow-burning drama infused with both sadness and hope. ‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 50% Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) (2018) Penélope Cruz shines. ‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) While the film's pace is speedy to a fault, it pauses just long enough to ponder the emotional contract between master and pet.‐ Time Out

3/5 80% A Woman's Life (Une vie) (2017) Credit to Stéphane Brizé for an impressive piece of filmmaking with a refreshingly contemporary approach. ‐ Time Out

4/5 59% Kaleidoscope (2017) Haggard, painful, longing, poignant, confused, alarmed, amused, dejected, sinister... [Toby] Jones can be all these things without saying a word. You're with him all the way, trying to decode the mysteries of his life and psyche.‐ Time Out

4/5 100% The Prince of Nothingwood (2017) Salim Shaheen is known as 'the Ed Wood of Afghanistan', so this documentary is as eccentric as you might expect. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
4/5 96% Mudbound (2017) Based on Hillary Jordan's novel, Mudbound -- co-adapted on the page by Rees and Virgil Williams -- is emotive but unsentimental: Traversing it feels as authentically gunky as the muddy swamps in which it is set.‐ Time Out

2/5 40% Justice League (2017) DCEU is floundering. It needs to find a bold new direction if it ever hopes to flap its wings, let alone compete with Marvel.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
3/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) If it's all a little too crowded with characters, Branagh's pacy direction keeps the story zipping along. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
3/5 59% Jungle (2017) More time could have been spent developing the bond between the men, but ultimately this is quite gripping: a weepie bromance. You don't see one of those every day.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
2/5 14% Geostorm (2017) It'll probably be most appealing to scientists looking for a good laugh.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
3/5 100% Earth: One Amazing Day (2017) It's breathtaking to watch, although its meditative possibilities are limited thanks to Redford's narration and an overbearing orchestral accompaniment.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
4/5 100% I Am Not a Witch (2017) A magic realist fable set in present-day Zambia that has plenty to say about gender and superstition. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
3/5 80% Double Date (2017) Double Date is a fitfully amusing British comedy-horror.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
4/5 80% The Party (2018) It's openly theatrical, but if it feels like a film of a play, it's a play you really should see.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 84% Loving Vincent (2017) Part mystery, part visual experiment, 'Loving Vincent' is a reverent ode to the 19th century painter Vincent van Gogh.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) It's a Mills & Boon kind of set up, but Winslet in particular adds authenticity and gravitas.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
3/5 74% The Exception (The Kaiser's Last Kiss) (2017) The dialogue's sometimes clunky, and allusions to the atrocities of war are glossed over. But if you're in the mood for a sexy, pacy period thriller, it does the job. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) Fans of Pooh and co get enough to make this an informative nostalgia fix.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 60% Tawai: A voice from the forest (2017) It's sincere, thought-provoking and gives you space to meditate on its message.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 87% Zoology (Zoologiya) (2016) If 'Teeth' and 'Raw' got your tail wagging, you'll lap this up.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 100% Daphne (2017) Daphne is a wisecracking wit who may just resemble women you actually know. Imagine that.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Carell's cartoonish antics are funny enough, but the two women are the tale's real champions.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) If you thought that the anal sex joke at the end of 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' was the funniest bit, you're in luck.‐ Time Out

3/5 83% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) The final match is an absolute nail-biter, reminding tennis fans how electric this sport can be.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) Mitch seems not just hot-headed but borderline racist, and neither trait is addressed in a satisfying way.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
4/5 83% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) 'The Long Kiss Goodnight', 'La Femme Nikita', 'Kill Bill'... this South Korean thriller owes a debt to many a great female-assassin thriller, and it's a fun ride for fans of the genre. ‐ Time Out

4/5 87% Kiss the Water (2013) A wee treasure.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
3/5 80% Exposed (2014) The documentary's format is a little repetitive but the content is interesting and, at times, inspiring.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 100% The Square (Al Midan) (2013) Tipped for an Oscar nomination, Jehane Noujaim's kaleidoscopic documentary offers a gripping, behind-the-headlines account of Egypt's 2011 Tahrir Square uprising and the complexities of its aftermath.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
3/5 82% Crystal Fairy (2013) It should appeal to fans of offbeat character-driven dramas - not to mention fans of Cera himself, who's embracing these morally ambiguous characters with gusto. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
5/5 91% Philomena (2013) Despite its weighty themes, Stephen Frears' film is almost as much a comedy as a drama. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) Not much happens but it has plenty to say. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
85% Snabba cash (Easy Money) (2012) It's overlong and a little muddled in the third act but still a thrilling, energetic watch. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 56% Bachelorette (2012) The comedy's anarchic tone is refreshing but it leaves little room for heart. You'll laugh, but you might feel a bit hollow inside.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 63% I Am Nasrine (2013) It's by turns clunkily contrived then wondrously natural (if raw) - let's hope Gharavi, like her heroine, progresses towards greater fulfillment. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 75% Paradise: Love (2013) A challenging and frequently uncomfortable watch that messes with your sympathies. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 33% Summer in February (2014) Dan Stevens is the one genuinely likeable element to this dreary Downton-on-Sea.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 39% Admission (2013) Portia is in many ways a typical [Tina] Fey character but the unfunny and clichéd script too often reminds us this is no 30 Rock.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 50% Now You See Me (2013) It's a fun set-up with a terrific cast - [Jesse] Eisenberg plays against type as a smooth-talking card trickster while [Woody] Harrelson radiates easy charm as a mentalist and serial flirt. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
4/5 74% Love Is All You Need (2013) [Susanne] Bier's intelligent direction, smart screenplay and canny casting make it a cut above your average middle-aged wish-fulfilment romance. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
4/5 89% Bernie (2012) [Jack] Black is hilarious, all towering tolerance that finally reaches boiling point.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
2/5 26% 21 And Over (2013) Occasionally funny but more frequently excruciating and derivative, 21 & Over is aimed firmly at relative newcomers to the genre. Perhaps it should have been called 21 & Under.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
3/5 38% Dead Man Down (2013) Dead Man Down isn't deeply satisfying but is well filmed and performed - and proof you can make a workable New York thriller with a bunch of Europeans.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
4/5 87% Arbitrage (2012) Pleasing twists and moral dilemmas abound. ‐ Metro (UK)
