Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 No Score Yet Scream for Me Sarajevo (2017) An interesting if minor footnote in the history of both the Bosnian war and heavy metal.‐ Guardian

3/5 86% Big Fish & Begonia (2018) While the movie's kaleidoscope of striking images and distinctive characters is spellbinding, it lacks psychological depth. And the question of what the hell is going on is never far from your mind.‐ Guardian

3/5 77% A Gentle Creature (2017) After two-and-a-half hours of punishing, brutal drama, you'll probably feel almost as battered as the poor heroine.‐ Time Out

3/5 No Score Yet Between Land and Sea (2016) The big draw here for fans is the phenomenal surfing footage, which captures the brutal beauty of the landscape and surfers gliding through waves so powerful they look as if they could snap a person in half.‐ Guardian

2/5 10% Monster Family (2018) The whole thing is exhausting, with too much slapstick, too few decent laughs and a care-y share-y message of family togetherness.‐ Guardian

3/5 100% Rey (2017) Rey is a weird and sometimes wonderful film, featuring moments of piercing, memorable strangeness ...‐ Guardian

3/5 76% Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) Mostly great fun, with Jack Black outrageously entertaining as a teenage girl. But we need to talk about Karen. As Ruby Roundhouse, Gillan is stuck in less clothes than one of Rihanna's backing dancers.‐ Time Out

3/5 82% Bingo: The King of the Mornings (Bingo - O rei das manhãs) (2017) If Martin Scorsese directed a film about a children's entertainer it might look something like Brazilian biopic 'Bingo'.‐ Time Out

4/5 97% Ethel & Ernest (2016) Butter a crumpet and snuggle down with this affectionate animation about illustrator Raymond Briggs's parents.‐ Time Out

2/5 45% The Dinner (2017) Not even a powerhouse cast can rescue this talky parable about how far parents will go to protect their kids.‐ Time Out

3/5 100% Dolores (2017) Using powerful archive material, the film chronicles Huerta's life and triumphs.‐ Guardian

3/5 94% Most Beautiful Island (2017) It's amazing what difference it makes when a female director is depicting disturbing scenes of women being tormented or victimised.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2017
1/5 No Score Yet #Starvecrow (2016) A naive and self-indulgent piece with very little going for it other than zeitgeist bragging rights.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2017
4/5 98% Jane (2017) A portrait of the primatologist as a young woman.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2017
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 61% 6 Days (2017) Bell is terrific - a combination of cocky swagger and perfect focus ...‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
3/5 54% Conor McGregor: Notorious (2017) [Conor McGregor's] never less that watchable, but the film is disappointingly one-sided. ‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
3/5 89% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2017
2/5 35% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2017
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

3/5 83% Marshall (2017) [Boseman is] totally convincing as an energetic young man, blessed with fierce idealism and swaggering charisma.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
4/5 87% Boy (2012) It's a disarmingly lovely, big-hearted film, and hilarious in places.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
3/5 83% The Ballad Of Shirley Collins (2017) She is a brilliant documentary subject - plain-speaking, authentic, feisty and seemingly without ego.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
2/5 68% Bitch (2017) It's an interesting concept, but the characters are thin and nothing here feels insightful.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
3/5 100% Pecking Order (2017) [A] quirkily entertaining documentary about the world of competitive chicken breeding.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2017
4/5 92% 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 83% 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 41% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
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
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
2/5 52% 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 75% 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
4/5 88% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) Passes the Bechdel Test with flying colours. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2017
2/5 20% The Book of Henry (2017) The whole thing is boring and phony, with just a couple of lines of dialogue that feel sharp.‐ Time Out

4/5 73% Berlin Syndrome (2017) The final showdown left me in a cold sweat.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
3/5 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) A fresh and un-stuffy period drama, but it could have done with a pinch more danger.‐ Time Out
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 May 30, 2017
3/5 67% Alien: Covenant (2017) For reasons too spoilery to give away, Fassbender is electric, giving a spectacularly skin-crawling performance.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 6, 2017
4/5 91% Mindhorn (2016) Barratt and Farnaby have come up with a comedy action-thriller scenario that just about works, and the gags-per-minute ratio is through the roof. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted May 2, 2017
4/5 83% A Moving Image (2017) Director Shola Amoo does a brilliant job of getting under the skin of gentrification. ‐ Time Out

4/5 89% Lady Macbeth (2017) This brilliantly feminist British indie film plunges a cold, sharp knife into the back of bonnet dramas.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2017
3/5 83% Letters From Baghdad (2017) Tilda Swinton is the perfect choice to read the letters of Gertrude Bell - archeologist, explorer, mountaineer and spy.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2017
2/5 26% Table 19 (2017) The gags ought to have been put out of their misery and there's a deeply uncool unfeminist message. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
4/5 91% Raw (2017) Raw is a film with things to say about body image, finding your identity as a woman and adapting to life as a grown-up.‐ Time Out
