4/5 96% Ethel & Ernest (2016) If you're a fan of Spirited Away's Chihiro, you will be enchanted by gentle Ethel.‐ London Evening Standard

75% 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 28% 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)

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)

59% Shiri (2002) The acclaim is justified.‐ Independent (UK)

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)

49% 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)

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)

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)

82% 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
81% 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
81% 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)

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
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
4/5 95% The Florida Project (2017) The camera, if especially respectful towards the children, refuses to demonise any of the characters.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 28% A Bad Moms Christmas (2017) Bad Moms 2, in that it could have been so much worse, winds up not being bad at all.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
4/5 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Keoghan is crucial to the unsettling mix. By turns inscrutable, vulnerable and ruthless, he has squished eyes and a nose that looks like it's just been punched.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 84% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2017) Grace Jones's intelligence, integrity and vulnerability come through as never before.‐ London Evening Standard

97% Call Me by Your Name (2017) What makes this film special? Aside from the fluid script, inventive camerawork and three uncanny songs by Sufjan Stevens, it's surely the acting, which seems scooped from the performers' marrow.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 65% Breathe (2017) Whenever things take a turn for the surreal, as opposed to the sentimental, Breathe expands.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 100% I Am Not a Witch (2017) It's hard to make gripping a character who hasn't found their voice. Yet Mulubwa does.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) Landon's scary movie offers a short, sharp shock to the system. Let it make your day.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 100% AlphaGo (2017) What are neural networks? I have no idea. But the team's delight in their creation is something any idiot can understand.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 82% Loving Vincent (2017) There's a lot here to love.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2017
2/5 53% On the Road (2016) It's soft, wrong and very, very long.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
4/5 100% Daphne (2017) If you're a fan of Bridesmaids, Obvious Child and/or TV shows such as Girls and Fleabag, you'll feel a tingle of rapture, roughly 10 minutes into the proceedings. That feeling won't go away.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 64% Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017) This film could have been so much better.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
3/5 31% Home Again (2017) Maybe pre-teen girls will go for these unnervingly sanitised shenanigans.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Cruel, spineless, virtually laughter-free and, above all, dull. Even putting the plot to paper makes my head ache.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 77% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) The film works (for much of its running time, at least) because the myth being peddled is an appealing one.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2017
3/5 92% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2017) It's one for the quietly desperate - a grim fairytale that suggests it's possible to keep the wolf from the door.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2017
2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) The epilogue suggests Mitch has a bright future. Back in the real world, everything about him looks dim.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 100% The Work (2017) Just spending time with this motley crew makes the world seem a saner place.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 87% Wind River (2017) Wind River ticks all the right boxes. It also leaves a bad smell.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2017
4/5 90% Lean on Pete (2018) Charlie Plummer, 18 playing 15, with the looks of a teenage Christopher Walken, brings great presence to Charley - and we're rooting for him all the way.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 99% God's Own Country (2017) Some will file God's Own Country under F for fantasy. Others will see it as a portent of rapprochements to come. Either way, it's a winner.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 82% Patti Cake$ (2017) Jasper's point is that being oneself is always a performance. If we know how to tell a story we all have the right to get up on stage.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 87% American Made (2017) It's director Doug Liman's refusal to spoon-feed that makes the story so potent.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) Wildly entertaining.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) Watching this Judd Apatow-produced romcom is like clicking on a for-real YouTube clip of a kitten juggling spoons. Cute. Clever. No wonder The Big Sick has gone viral.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 89% Hounds of Love (2017) Psychologically impressive and fiendishly involving.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) If you can detach your noggin from the proceedings, there are definitely bright spots.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 89% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) I didn't find the anecdotes especially revealing and was unimpressed by much of the art.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
4/5 85% The Death of Louis XIV (La mort de Louis XIV) (2017) If you like this kind of thing, The Death of Louis XIV is fascinating.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) It's not exactly scary but it made me so tense I could hardly breathe, let alone think.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) Holland probably has five more years in which to dazzle us, and it'll be a crime if Batalon and Zendaya aren't by his side. This franchise is now all about Peter and his friends. Here's looking at you, kids.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Watching Agnes is like emptying five packets of Space Dust into your mouth: guaranteed to induce tingles.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2017
4/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) Here's a prediction. First-year drama students will soon be Blu-Tacking the hell out of posters for Baby Driver, which will make Edgar Wright at once embarrassed and proud.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 86% Okja (2017) Bong's slick and slippery offering is a game-changer. Call it Netflix's first great film. Call it, simply, great.‐ London Evening Standard
