55% Mektoub, My Love: Canto Uno (2017) Above all, Mektoub is a terrific study of the fine art of flirting: of girls and girls, and girls and boys (but never, it seems, boys and boys) and the shifts in power that occur between them as they drink, dance, smile and shrug. - Sight and Sound EDIT

93% Amour (2012) What Haneke give us with Amour is a love story, one that is compassionate, powerful and intelligent, and that treats its protagonists and its audiences with respect. - Sight and Sound EDIT

93% Toni Erdmann (2016) Toni Erdmann is as strange, delightful and dementedly funny as the hype has it. But repeat watching reveals a film that plays first as comedy, then as tragedy. - Sight and Sound EDIT

91% Certain Women (2016) Powerful, focused, nervy, lean. Certain Women is a work of art produced by a director in full control of her material. It leaves you reeling. - Sight and Sound EDIT

98% Phoenix (2015) This is cinema at its most ineffable and its most potent. - Sight and Sound EDIT

50% Tomorrowland (2015) It's a hard heart that would resist Clooney's appeal to his audience to just -- for once -- be amazed. - Sight and Sound EDIT

96% Ida (2014) Set in an austere, almost abandoned Poland during the early 1960s, director Pawel Pawlikowski's first feature made in his homeland is a spare, haunting piece of minimalism. - Sight and Sound EDIT

75% Free Men (2012) It's a thoughtful and thought-provoking piece of filmmaking, which repays repeat viewing. - Sight and Sound EDIT

65% We Have a Pope (2012) A meditation on the guilt, regret and shame that come with age and acquired wisdom as a pillorying of orthodox hypocrisy. - Sight and Sound EDIT

100% Man on Wire (2008) The tension builds incrementally, reaching almost unbearable heights at its dizzying climax. - Sight and Sound EDIT
