3/5 No Score Yet A Caribbean Dream (2017) If you've had your fill of flitty-fluttery fairies, its forest sprites are a palate cleanser - constantly sloping off to carnival, which makes for more twerking than your average Shakespeare.‐ Guardian

3/5 No Score Yet Bill Viola: The Road to St Paul's (2017) He comes across here as a pleasant man, good-natured and modest for an art-world superstar, though with an unmistakable core of pure, blinkers-on drive.‐ Guardian

3/5 88% Ferrari: Race to Immortality (2017) Director Daryl Goodrich has access to all the right people, and his footage is nicely chosen, but it's unlikely to convert non-petrolheads. ‐ Time Out

2/5 34% Jigsaw (2017) A slick soulless horror flick just in time for Halloween, more trick than treat.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Pickups (2017) Gillen's unpredictable, predator-like charisma and those hilarious who-do-you-think-you-are scenes make it a risk that pays off.‐ Guardian

3/5 100% I Remember You (Eg Man Big) (2017) It's entertaining enough, but certainly didn't have me reaching for a jumper.‐ Guardian

2/5 No Score Yet Access All Areas (2017) This Hollyoaks-ish caper is let down by false notes and suffers from monumental lapses in festival reality ...‐ Guardian

Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 100% The Road to Mandalay (2016) Compassionate and honestly told, it is a real empathy machine of a movie. And, of course, you can't watch it without thinking of the desperate plight of Burma's Rohingya Muslims.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
3/5 82% The Villainess (Ak-Nyeo) (2017) With a body count in triple digits before the opening credits finish, the bloodily inventive fight sequences work better than the emotional scenes here - and sensible shoes aside, director Jung Byung-gil doesn't bring much new to the genre.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
2/5 36% The Jungle Bunch (Les as de la jungle) (2017) Loud and zappy, The Jungle Bunch trots out predictable be-kind-be-brave platitudes, but lacks anything distinctive of its own.‐ Guardian

3/5 No Score Yet Let Me Go (2017) Juliet Stevenson gives a typically excellent performance of bottled up shame and guilt as a woman haunted by the sins of her mother in this low-budget British drama.‐ Guardian

2/5 55% The Case for Christ (2017) For a Christian film, this is decently acted, but with the sentimentality cranked up, it drags on for what feels like eternity.‐ Guardian

2/5 80% The Lure (2016) The film could have done with some tougher questioning of Fenn, a colourful, controversial figure now in his 80s.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
3/5 61% The Odyssey (L'odyssée) (2016) This conventional, unadventurous biopic ploddingly tells the story of the French ocean explorer and film-maker Jacques Cousteau - though the underwater sequences are stunning.‐ Guardian

2/5 46% Everything, Everything (2017) This is anaemic stuff, though perhaps its target audience won't care.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017

Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) A rollicking action adventure in the tradition of 'Indiana Jones', with a fully functioning sense of humour and the year's most lip-smackingly evil baddie.‐ Time Out

Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2017
4/5 95% Prevenge (2017) You don't need to have a warped sense of humour to enjoy writer-director Alice Lowe's gruesome black comedy, but it helps. ‐ Time Out

Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2016
3/5 76% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) There's a telly-ish feel to much of A Street Cat Named Bob, an attempt to sanitise life on the streets... But it's impossible to watch a film about a happy-ending story like James and Bob's without a warm glow.‐ Time Out
