T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 75% Simon Killer (2013) A dark, visually arresting piece that uses its ambivalence and sordidness to pose serious questions about the limits of youthful delusions. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 89% Compliance (2012) Compliance is a tremendously incisive film; deeply intelligent and clinically compelling. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 19% Identity Thief (2013) dentity Thief is awash with a hackneyed and horribly mawkish type of moralising. It's as if studios have voluntarily adopted a new skewed iteration of the Hays Production Code for its comedies. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 77% The Spirit of '45 (2013) A shame that Loach's latest has all the political sophistication of a students' union protest... As it stands, it's a respectable but flawed portrait of national endurance. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 88% The Road: A Story of Life & Death (2012) Feels like it's only ever scratching the surface of life as an exile. But as a personal portrait of disparate individuals, it's a lyrical and understated piece with a quiet emotional pull. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 71% Chained (2012) It's more successful in concept than execution perhaps, but the film's pessimistic view of humanity and genre-bending philosophical foundations keep it interesting. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 87% Ballroom Dancer (2013) While the various dramas and tantrums have the unwittingly salacious allure of soap opera, there is something sadder, more mournful going on beneath the surface. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 96% West of Memphis (2012) Sadly hindered by some questionable finger-pointing and an inappropriately celebratory ending... But West of Memphis is still commendable in its scope and passion. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 88% Neil Young Journeys (2012) Like its subject, Neil Young Journeys has a loose and rough-hewed charm. - CineVue EDIT

5/5 78% Last Flag Flying (2017) Last Flag Flying may feel like a film out of time in the present moment, but it's a terrifically funny, deeply moving picture whose time will surely come. - Little White Lies EDIT

4/5 95% Son of Saul (2015) The brute force is punishing, but there's real moral and intellectual rigour behind it. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 91% Bone Tomahawk (2015) A precariously balanced, genre-literate oddity with something to say. - Little White Lies EDIT

4/5 90% A Bigger Splash (2016) A modern cinematic opera - the sun-kissed bacchanal followed by the tempestuous comedown. - Little White Lies EDIT

4/5 88% Straight Outta Compton (2015) The NWA story is told in the style of a luxe, classic-era studio biopic. And it's scintillating. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 80% The New Girlfriend (2015) François Ozon does it again with this puckish and erotic satire on sexuality and family gender roles. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 95% Wild Tales (2015) Broad strokes, dexterously delivered. - Little White Lies EDIT
