Stuck in Love (2013)

Summer in February (2014)

"In the end, it seems to be much ado about nothing very much, despite the pleasing performances and scenery." ‐London Evening Standard

009 Re: Cyborg (2013)

"We are treated to superb city landscapes but so much minor detail that you never know who is doing what to whom, or even why." ‐London Evening Standard

Aguirre, the Wrath of God (Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes) (1972)

"The whole movie merges landscapes and character with such force that, once seen, you never forget it." ‐London Evening Standard

The Last Exorcism Part II (2013)

"A movie that doesn't go for the spectacular but slowly and surely a dullness pervades." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 7, 2013

After Earth (2013)

"The problem is that the film is chockful of clichés and stymied by production design and CG effects that look as if the worst of the Star Wars series was being devoutly copied." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 7, 2013
4/5 95%

Behind the Candelabra (2013)

"Perhaps Behind the Candelabra lacks depth of focus but nobody could complain of any lack of pure, unadulterated entertainment value." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 7, 2013

Thérèse (2013)

"Tautou, eschewing her usual smiley charm, is a revelation, and Miller's final film a fine testimony to his art." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Jun 7, 2013
3/5 41%

Only God Forgives (2013)

"A very strange movie indeed, equipped with a script that would hardly fill four or five pages, and characters who move slowly back and forth when they are not staring at each other." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted May 24, 2013
4/5 98%

Mud (2013)

"This is a film that gives McConaughey the chance to be an actor rather than a star, and, not for the first time, he grabs the opportunity." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted May 10, 2013
3/5 54%

The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2013)

"Something is lost in translation, perhaps because Nair is at her best with more personal, less expansive epics such as Salaam Bombay and Monsoon Wedding." ‐London Evening Standard

Our Children (2013)

"A small masterpiece." ‐London Evening Standard

A Hijacking (2013)

"As a psychological drama, this is surely one of the best of the year." ‐London Evening Standard

Village At The End Of The World (2012)

"This is a warm-hearted and affecting tribute to a tenacious people who seem to know the score better than most of us." ‐London Evening Standard

3/5 23%

Vehicle 19 (2013)

"Good location work, albeit mostly inside the car, doesn't save the film from absurdity." ‐London Evening Standard

Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia) (Strangers) (The Lonely Woman) (1954)

"In the end the film magnificently justifies its classic status as an affirmative statement about relationships." ‐London Evening Standard

Wu xia (Dragon) (2012)

"There are good action sequences but it has been ham-fistedly cut for UK distribution." ‐London Evening Standard

All Stars (2013)

"At least the dancing is fun." ‐London Evening Standard

21 And Over (2013)

"The final implication that this is how you grow up and find yourself makes one fear for the future of US youth. And, indeed, America itself." ‐London Evening Standard

Gimme The Loot (2013)

"The film is episodic and determinedly offbeat, funny at its best, boring at its worst." ‐London Evening Standard

Dead Man Down (2013)

"[Rapace] will be enough to send some to this urban thriller but the film will send them away disappointed." ‐London Evening Standard

Chimpanzee (2012)

"Words (narration by Tim Allen) and syrupy music let it down but it's still great to watch." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted May 3, 2013
3/5 58%

The Eye of the Storm (2012)

"It is funny and sad in patches, but never comes completely alive, perhaps because there isn't a single character with whom you can feel fully in sympathy." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted May 3, 2013
4/5 100%

White Elephant (2013)

"The drama is intense but fractured as Trapero shows how millions of poverty-stricken people live in his home country, and how a few brave people attempt to do something about it." ‐London Evening Standard

3/5 82%

Scarecrow (1973)

"As a picture of blue-collar America the film is credible and compassionate." ‐London Evening Standard

In the Fog (2013)

"[An] austere but never ponderous film about war, and its effect on those caught up in impossible circumstances ..." ‐London Evening Standard

Bernie (2012)

"Linklater observes it all with an ironic smile on his face. But he's never patronising enough to sneer." ‐London Evening Standard

Iron Man 3 (2013)

"A no-holds-barred if uneven epic that should satisfy most diehard fans." ‐London Evening Standard

Promised Land (2013)

"A gentle rather than dramatic film that, once the central argument is laid out, lacks real flair." ‐London Evening Standard

Love Is All You Need (2013)

"Trine Dyrholm, as a wronged wife, makes the film worth seeing all by herself." ‐London Evening Standard

Me and You (2014)

"While Bertolucci has made many more notable movies, you have to admire his constant quest for a glimmer of truth." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 19, 2013
2/5 61%

Evil Dead (2013)

"Happy days for those who love this sort of thing. But Raimi's effort, perhaps because we hadn't seen the plot before, was infinitely more scary." ‐London Evening Standard

3/5 95%

L'ordre et la morale (Rebellion) (2008)

"It is clearly well-researched but not made with La Haine's flair." ‐London Evening Standard

Fuck For Forest (2014)

"Michal Marczak's film seems to be sympathetic to the boy and his anarchist friends, but it isn't long before you want to get the hell out of their company." ‐London Evening Standard

Simon Killer (2013)

"The performances of Brady Corbet as the taciturn American and Mati Diop as the sympathetic prostitute lend the film watchability ..." ‐London Evening Standard

Teorema (Theorem) (1968)

"The film, made in 1968, was provocative then and remains so now. But it doesn't elucidate its ambivalent moral secrets easily." ‐London Evening Standard

First Position (2012)

"Anyone with an interest in dance should enjoy this documentary ..." ‐London Evening Standard

Flying Blind (2013)

"As a love story it tells you a lot, thanks largely to the way McCrory shapes and underlines her part." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 12, 2013
4/5 93%

The Gatekeepers (2013)

"The film, though based on the exploits of Shin Bet, gives us reason to think about the drones that take out more than just terrorists." ‐London Evening Standard

The Place Beyond The Pines (2013)

"The ... stories mesh uneasily, even though the film-making is smart throughout and the acting often more than that." ‐London Evening Standard

Batman Returns (1992)

"It's the kind of film which has great stills but never quite comes alive when it actually moves -- likely to win at the box-office quicker than it does in the mind." ‐Guardian
Posted Apr 10, 2013
4/5 78%

A Late Quartet (2012)

"It is not flawless but it makes you watch, and listen, closely throughout." ‐London Evening Standard

All Things To All Men (2013)

"[A] smartly made but twirly-plotted thriller ..." ‐London Evening Standard

Home (Yurt) (2013)

"Pretty slow going but packs a punch in the end." ‐London Evening Standard
Posted Apr 5, 2013

Erased (2013)

"It's a smartly paced and decently made mixture of The Bourne Conspiracy and Taken but has one major drawback: Eckhart is neither Matt Damon nor Liam Neeson." ‐London Evening Standard
