T-Meter Title | Year Review
71% The Adjustment Bureau (2011) The film meanders between its two styles and sets of concerns, but it adds up to a solid piece of cinema entertainment with a few brain-tweaking moments of paranoia. - The Vine EDIT

98% Inside Job (2010) Charles Ferguson, whose previous film was another cogent account of US failure, is an important contemporary historian. His style may be a little flat, but the material and the arguments are indispensable. - The Vine EDIT

85% Black Swan (2010) Aronofsky wants neither ham or cheese on this, just a big stale bagel of clichés. The film seems concerned with giving the appearance of drama rather than actually sweeping us up in it. - The Vine EDIT

55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) A competent drama with topical themes and a repeat performance for one of Hollywood's most memorable characters of recent times. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps becomes Gekko's ironic victory lap. - The Vine EDIT
