4/5 90% Lean on Pete (2017) 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 98% 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 83% 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 88% American Made (2017) It's director Doug Liman's refusal to spoon-feed that makes the story so potent.‐ 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

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

4/5 84% 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 89% 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 61% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Watching Agnes is like emptying five packets of Space Dust into your mouth: guaranteed to induce tingles.‐ London Evening Standard

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 85% 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

3/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Though convoluted and mostly indistinguishable from piffle, it's by no means the worst of the bunch.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 43% Hampstead (2017) Keaton and Gleeson are sweet together (I like the sweaty, studenty-vibe they create in Emma's attic). It's also nice to see London's housing crisis being discussed.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 72% Gifted (2017) Emotional manipulation gets a bad press. But, hey, sometimes being milked for tears is fun.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 87% Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017) You get the sense of a woman battling so hard to impress white America that her moral compass has gone haywire.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 96% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) This isn't a weepie but as you realise what's happening you may want to cry.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 99% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) My Life as a Courgette isn't perfect (some of the adult characters lack nuance) but its attempt to redefine innocence is stirring.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 18% Baywatch (2017) Cynical and gross.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted May 30, 2017
4/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) Small children often experience the world as simultaneously solid and fantastical; De Wit's beautiful film tugs us into that mindset.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 36% Snatched (2017) Snatched is the kind of movie that makes long-haul flights whizz by. Its heroines are dumber than they should be and smarter than they know.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 80% Colossal (2017) It's a shame Raymond Carver is not around to watch this.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 92% The Levelling (2017) EU rules. Insurance scams. Infectious diseases. These are all serious topics, yet it's when Leach fools around that The Levelling feels like it has something truly important to say.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 75% Miss Sloane (2016) Elizabeth Sloane's a real piece of work - and so is this film.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 97% Burden (2017) The Seventies footage is electrifying. But what makes this documentary special is that it doesn't put its subject on a pedestal.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 90% Mindhorn (2016) Barratt's delightfulness can't disguise the mediocrity of Mindhorn.‐ London Evening Standard
Read More | Posted May 5, 2017
3/5 50% The Promise (2017) The sets look phoney. The relentlessly sun-dappled skies are naff. The "action" lacks momentum and Tom Hollander's eyeliner is mad.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 93% Clash (Eshtebak) (2017) It's a tiny movie but it feels like a big deal.‐ London Evening Standard

4/5 74% 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 87% 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 96% 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
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
2/5 22% The Time of Their Lives (2017) The script, along with Roger Goldby's direction, is numbingly inept.‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 70% 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 93% 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 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Unanswered questions pile up, until only one remains. Could this be the stupidest third act EVER?‐ London Evening Standard

3/5 45% 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
94% Fences (2016) This is a portrait of a doomed marriage that allows its stars to explode.‐ London Evening Standard

2/5 43% 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
