4/5 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Tony and his frenemies are a peculiar bunch. Hang out with them while you can.‐ London Evening Standard

66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) In the words of Kurt Russell's FBI maverick, Mr Nobody: "Rule number one. Know your audience." The powers-that-be certainly know us.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 99% Get Out (2017) Mostly [Peele] creates a lovely, off-kilter mood, riffing with tremendous visual poise on all sorts of classics, including Seconds, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and The Stepford Wives.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) Though brand new, The Lost City of Z already feels out of date.‐ London Evening Standard

Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
3/5 97% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) It's wellacted and full of low-key pain and humour (you would expect nothing less from the man behind A Separation, one of the most excruciatingly humane and nuanced films of the decade).‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 17% The Time of Their Lives (2017) The script, along with Roger Goldby's direction, is numbingly inept.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) The CGI Kong is cool.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 73% Viceroy's House (2017) Fighting a stealth war on conventional thinking, Chadha offers us a tantalising epic, what you might call a halfway house.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 92% Certain Women (2016) Its rhythms and performances are built to last. If you don't seek it out now, it'll catch you later.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Unanswered questions pile up, until only one remains. Could this be the stupidest third act EVER?‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
3/5 46% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) Seydoux, Cassel and Baye, though hampered by character arcs that feel a shade too familiar, are more than adequate.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
93% Fences (2016) This is a portrait of a doomed marriage that allows its stars to explode.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017

2/5 42% Gold (2017) Deluded-yet-indomitable, Kenny is just too familiar a figure and the absurdly upbeat twist ending is the final insult.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
3/5 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) When presented with the script, Boyle et al should just have said no.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
4/5 86% Lion (2016) Google Earth has blind spots and so does Lion. Still, it covers an awful lot of ground and the views are stunning.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
3/5 75% Split (2017) It's far from perfect, but where so many modern horror movies are anonymous, Split has personality and then some.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2017
3/5 34% Live By Night (2017) It ain't rubbish, but Affleck's fly-by-night operation is still one to avoid.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
4/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) If you like weird bedtime stories, hunt it down.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 67% Rats (2016) Crude but crafty ...‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2016
4/5 92% The Eagle Huntress (2016) This lovely ode to change (which gets you thinking, not just about gender but all hierarchies) contains two powerful youngsters. It should really be called The Eaglet and her Girl.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 100% The Pass (2016) Williams's wrenching yarn dissects various betrayals and offers a useful reminder: when it's all about the brand, we're all fair game.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 61% Snowden (2016) Stone's film is about as suspenseful as a trip to Ikea.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 96% Moana (2016) In the next election, can I just vote Disney?‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2016
4/5 95% Paterson (2016) True, some of Paterson's poems are just dull-dull. And the whimsy can be cloying. But the acting is fantastic.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 98% Your Name. (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2017) Shinkai is one to watch but doesn't quite yet deserve to be a household name.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2016
3/5 82% Indignation (2016) I'm glad Indignation exists. In its own, quietly explosive way, it leaves a very human stain.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2016
3/5 52% The Accountant (2016) At least, in its determinedly populist way, this violent character study makes you think.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
3/5 77% A Street Cat Named Bob (2016) I defy anyone to leave in a bad mood. James and Bob seem like good people. Or good cats. ‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 37% Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016) Tom Cruise's latest action spectacular is so dull that I found myself willing on the baddies.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2016
4/5 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) Queen of Katwe mostly does what you expect it to do (albeit vivaciously). Then, like its Ugandan heroine, Phiona Mutesi, it jumps eight moves ahead.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 19% Inferno (2016) Silly plot. Fancy locations.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
3/5 63% Storks (2016) A popsicle-coloured, 3D cartoon with a pertinent, if somewhat hard to explain conceit.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
3/5 57% War on Everyone (2017) There's so much going on - too bad not a single encounter feels plausible or the least bit dangerous.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 88% My Scientology Movie (2017) There are so many fascinating things about this film.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2016
4/5 98% The Babadook (2014) The Babadook's villains and victims are still running amok in my brain. I think they might be there for some time.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 47% Free State of Jones (2016) A great story, galumphingly told.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
3/5 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) This is one of Burton's minor dreams but its yukky-yummy fragments are still doing cartwheels in my head.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
4/5 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) This is a gory love story. It's a real gift.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
3/5 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Bridget Jones's Baby, ultimately, snatches victory from the jaws of defeat.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 69% The Infiltrator (2016) Furman is obviously working in the long shadow of Martin Scorsese and the Breaking Bad team. Still, he's learned all the right lessons, especially when it comes to music.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 35% Blair Witch (2016) If you're scared of twigs this movie will have you urinating in the aisles.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
4/5 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) The beauty of the film lies in its refusal to paint Ben as a deluded tyrant or principled pioneer. He doesn't have two faces - thanks to the script, as well as Mortensen's squirrely brilliance, he has hundreds.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
4/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) As with Starred Up, Mackenzie's family-centric prison drama, Hell or High Water is full of grim nooks and crannies.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
4/5 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) The animation? Well, it robs you of breath, over and over again.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
3/5 70% CafĂ© Society (2016) Allen's script throws together familiar elements (ruthless hoodlums, respectable hypocrites, insecure film buffs) but lacks pace, belly-laughs or texture.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2016
4/5 100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) Mia Hansen-Love's precise script, perfectly in tune with Huppert's methods, works like a sharp knife, gently able to slip between our ribs.‐ London Evening Standard
