Man of Steel (2013)

"Chaotic and unfocused." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Jun 21, 2013

Behind the Candelabra (2013)

"A tremendous achievement for all involved." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted May 31, 2013

The Great Gatsby (2013)

"Less is not more, more is more. Luhrmann's Great Gatsby embraces this notion as a reflection of its central character, and in this sense at least it is near-on perfect." ‐Clothes on Film

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

"Manages to appease lifelong Star Trek fans without alienating newcomers." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted May 8, 2013

Iron Man 3 (2013)

"The perfect superhero movie." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Apr 23, 2013

Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)

"As patchy as a patchwork quilt, but equally pleasing to look at." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Mar 3, 2013

Lincoln (2012)

"The biggest compliment we can pay Joanna Johnston's costumes in Lincoln is that you hardly notice them. This is a far subtler film than you might expect." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Jan 31, 2013

Django Unchained (2012)

"A cruel but humorous tale of robust men and women defined by the myth of the 'Old West'." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 27, 2012

Les Misérables (2012)

"Earnest enough to verge on parody, but so sumptuous most audiences won't care a jot." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 19, 2012

Skyfall (2012)

"Skyfall could be the most enjoyable Bond yet. One thing's for certain; Bond has never scrubbed up better. Tom Ford now exists to make Daniel Craig suits." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Oct 15, 2012

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel (2012)

"For Vreeland reality was merely the starting point on a far more delicious journey, the best of which is captured here in this excellent documentary." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Sep 20, 2012

Looper (2012)

"A mishmash of futuristic conventions and clichés cobbled together as something we have never quite seen before." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Sep 13, 2012

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Posted Jun 28, 2012

Posted Apr 19, 2012

The Hunger Games (2012)

Posted Mar 26, 2012

The Woman in Black (2012)

"Proof that frock coats and lace dresses really are terrifying." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Feb 9, 2012

Posted Dec 22, 2011

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011)

"Enjoyably daft fare with enough sci-fi tech and desirable clobber to keep you cooing until the credits." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 15, 2011

The Artist (2011)

"If there is a more joyous film this year, we haven't seen it." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Nov 24, 2011

Melancholia (2011)

Posted Jul 24, 2011

Norwegian Wood (2012)

Posted May 26, 2011

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

"This saturated saga is dead in the water." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted May 16, 2011

Water for Elephants (2011)

"Old fashioned and sentimental, Water for Elephants still has much to offer with its very readable costume design." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted May 9, 2011

Rabbit Hole (2010)

"While it may be uncomfortable to watch, Rabbit Hole is nonetheless essential viewing." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Feb 3, 2011

The King's Speech (2010)

"A tender contemplation on duty and the crippling weight of expectancy." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Jan 18, 2011

Tron Legacy (2010)

"There are flourishes of brilliance, particularly in score, costumes and set design. However, this brilliance is often buried beneath messy, disjointed action sequences and a story that fails to make any sense at all." ‐Clothes on Film
Posted Dec 5, 2010

Catfish (2010)

"A deftly clever commentary on the nature of identity and how it defines our role in society." ‐Clothes on Film

Saturn 3 (1980)
