Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
75% The Happy Prince (2018) Everett deserves praise for not turning Wilde turned into some kind of gay saint. Our hero is the victim of homophobia, yes, but also insecure and manipulative.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 87% A Ciambra (2018) Carpignano doesn't judge his characters. He just lays bare what makes them tick.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 87% My Friend Dahmer (2017) Isn't there something pathological about the way we privilege the pathological? If you can stomach the focus of My Friend Dahmer, you'll find this rewarding.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 100% McQueen (2018) It's a cliché to talk of artists as tortured, but McQueen's anguish is palpable.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 69% On Chesil Beach (2018) You can't doubt the film's good intentions. Its crime is the Hollywood ending.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 71% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Nothing in Solo can compete with a single scene in The Force Awakens. But what this film does have is cape-clad pilot Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and his pal, uppity droid L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge).‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 94% The Breadwinner (2017) This beautiful and continually surprising film makes us think about what children can and can't bear.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 95% Zama (2018) Martel has made a woozy epic about the toxicity of torpor.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 95% Filmworker (2018) Whether you're fascinated by Kubrick or the human condition this is a minor classic.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 29% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) Actually more fun than the original and guaranteed to make under-10s shudder with delight.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 46% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) It's a lovely yarn, simple and sly, but what it's spawned is often painful.‐ London Evening Standard

5/5 87% Tully (2018) Cody's writing has never been better.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 94% Beast (2018) Writer/director Michael Pearce, making his feature debut, is only 36. His assurance is astounding.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
4/5 77% Funny Cow (2017) This film is interested in the point where hate and humour meet. Its protagonist is a real cow. I loved her to bits.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 85% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) Claire Denis knows how to make an exit. The French director's portrait of the artist as a 50-year-old woman is mostly maddening.‐ London Evening Standard

14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) It's mostly pants, with a haunted church that must have cost about $5 to assemble and a stinky performance from Teen Wolf cutie Tyler Posey.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 95% Custody (Jusqu'à la garde) (2018) Human beings aren't always straight with each other. With thrilling skill, Legrand and his team find a crooked path to clarity.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2018
4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) You'll root for the Abbotts till your cheeks are sodden. All hail a blockbuster that's ultra-sound. And pray that it blows the competition away.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 86% Thoroughbreds (2018) Thank goodness, the film stays on track and Cooke's character, especially, keeps on confounding us.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Apr 8, 2018
3/5 84% Journeyman (2017) Young men and women are desperate to box and Considine makes sense of their desperation.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
3/5 48% Tomb Raider (2018) Vikander's expressive face is a godsend. Whether being throttled by a goon or torn away from a loved one, this stricken Lara feels like one of us.‐ London Evening Standard

74% Mom and Dad (2018) A hilarious, knowing bit of schlock ...‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Mar 11, 2018
4/5 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) I'd happily pay to see this movie again. And again. Phoenix and Ramsay are demonic upstarts. And for most of this movie it's just heaven to be by their side.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) A Fantastic Woman asks us to embrace all things fluid and, thanks to the superstar at its centre, it's a pleasure to go with the flow.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2018
3/5 83% Game Night (2018) The spoofy action set-pieces are ho hum. What's special is the minutiae-based, casually political banter.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 70% Finding Your Feet (2018) This is a silly old film but its vulnerable characters are a blast.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2018
5/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Like many wonderful actresses with a gift for words (think Julie Delpy, Sarah Polley and Lake Bell) Gerwig has slipped behind the camera to create something quietly political.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 71% The Mercy (2017) Firth laps up the ambiguity, expertly conveying the mess - the brilliant mess - inside Crowhurst's head.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2018
4/5 93% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) The latest from Leviathan director Andrey Zvyagintsev is a fluffy romcom perfect for St Valentine's Day. Just kidding.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 92% Journey's End (2018) Think of it as a really, really, little gem.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
5/5 97% Coco (2017) Funny, irreverent and eye-popping. It will also make you want to cry at least once but possibly as many as three times.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) Lili Fini Zanuck's documentary gives us plenty of time to ponder Clapton's physique but if you're hoping to get inside the rock legend's head, look elsewhere.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Three Billboards is great.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) Sorkin, directing for the first time, has made an outrageously self-righteous thriller.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 97% Ethel & Ernest (2016) If you're a fan of Spirited Away's Chihiro, you will be enchanted by gentle Ethel.‐ London Evening Standard

76% Manifesto (2017) After meeting the first few characters I was gripped by an overwhelming desire to nod off. Then I saw the light.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 29% Suburbicon (2017) Feels like a bone-headed clone of Fargo.‐ London Evening Standard

85% Billy Elliot (2000) It's as raw a slice of escapism as you could wish for.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
No Score Yet Thomas Pynchon: Journey Into the Mind (2003) His theories are fascinating, but if his ex-girlfriend is anything to go by, he had terrible taste in people. She and her husband blaze with self-importance, but secrete frustration and disappointment from every pore.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
59% Shiri (2002) The acclaim is justified.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
No Score Yet Pure (2002) MacKinnon's too timid to explore this in any depth. Pure is basically a morality tale, which sends out the Harry Potter-ish message that pluck, rather than luck, saves the day.‐ Independent (UK)

50% Heartlands (2002) What it feels like is a 10-minute short that's been yanked every which way but loose.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
48% The Heart of Me (2003) The Heart of Me, inspired by Rosamund Lehmann's anguished classic The Echoing Grove, is a costume drama that wants to be more than the sum of its wardrobe.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
87% Lawless Heart (2002) Hunter and Hunsinger show what can happen if you opt instead for the humour that accompanies can-I-feel? quiet. Turns out wit and warmth and keen observation produce their own euphoria -- what you might call a natural high.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
57% The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) A more serious problem is that Parker doesn't trust his material and - under the guise of pointing up Wilde's subversive wit - has opted to play safe.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
83% The Believer (2002) People have a right to make godless films. Bean's made one, and it's as brilliant as it is humane.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
80% The Hours (2002) It's a must-see. Mainstream epics routinely privilege the father-son bond... In The Hours, patriarchs barely figure, and the only phallic weapon on display is Virginia's pen.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
80% Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) That Zellweger can make us believe in Bridget's heaving inner world is par for the course -- she's a supremely talented comic actress. That she was willing to risk her own status as sex symbol by looking like an everywoman is really impressive.‐ Independent (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2017
4/5 89% Marjorie Prime (2017) It's a topical treatise on memory and artificial intelligence that asks how the human brain works (or doesn't).‐ London Evening Standard
