3/5 97% Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012) " Fascinating account of Weiwei's practice and politics that gives centre stage to his charismatic personality." — Little White Lies
Posted Aug 9, 2012
1/5 —— Breaking Wind (2012) " You have to endure 70-plus minutes before witnessing its low point: sneering footage of real 'Twilight' fans." — Time Out
Posted Mar 1, 2012
3/5 8% Acts of Godfrey " The results are slight but old-fashioned fun, Think less TS Eliot, more 'Carry On'." — Time Out
Posted Jan 24, 2012
—— The West Wittering Affair (2006) Time Out
Posted Nov 18, 2011

Posted Dec 1, 2007

Posted Dec 30, 2006
88% Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing (2006) " A superior rockumentary." — Time Out
Posted Nov 18, 2006
77% Match Point (2005) " The plotting lacks a necessary sense of tragic propulsion; it feels dutifully schematic, its ironies polite and tidy when they should be bitter and merciless." — Sight and Sound
Posted Sep 28, 2006
88% The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2007) " Loach has made a film of uncompromising, wintry bleakness, haunted by death and ravaged ideals. The days of hope have never been shorter." — Sight and Sound
Posted Sep 28, 2006
71% The Science of Sleep (2006) " Possibly a very shallow work, but it's also exhaustively imaginative and bustles with wit and invention." — Sight and Sound
Posted Sep 28, 2006
85% Unconscious (2006) " We should be thankful for the wit and style of JoaquĆ­n Oristrell's film." — Time Out
Posted Sep 23, 2006
40% My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006) " At one point, jealous Thurman tosses a live shark into Matt and Hannah's love nest. Unwittingly plunged into this farrago, the shark earns my sympathy." — Time Out
Posted Aug 3, 2006
92% Dave Chappelle's Block Party (2006) " Chappelle keeps things lively, joking on camera, punctuating the acts with gags , while Michel Gondry maintains our interest, focusing as much on Chappelle's energy and wit, and goings-on behind the scenes, as the gig itself." — Time Out
Posted Jun 29, 2006
32% Imagine Me & You (2006) " The American Perabo (doing a good English accent) and Headey are likable leads -- and Goode brings a touching vulnerability to his role as the luckless Heck." — Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
92% Sisters in Law (2005) " A stirring movie about the ameliorative power of justice and mercy in a fascinating part of the world." — Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
35% Ask the Dust (2006) " Although Chinatown writer Towne lovingly depicts the Depression-era LA setting (actually shot in South Africa), the film misfires." — Time Out

Posted Jul 5, 2005
—— One More Kiss (2001) Sight and Sound
Posted Jun 18, 2003
48% Jackass - The Movie (2002) " It goes without saying that much of this is pathologically puerile, relentlessly unedifying and in dubious taste, but there are more than enough compensating laugh-out-loud moments (for this viewer, at least)." — Sight and Sound

19% Thomas and the Magic Railroad (2000) " An inglorious wreck of a movie." — Sight and Sound
Posted Dec 2, 2002
—— Julian Po (1997) Sight and Sound
Posted Dec 2, 2002
85% Chuck & Buck (2000) " Chuck & Buck is a film which you can't quite get a fix on: it's a movie about child sex which is also as airy and sweetly likeable as anything you'll see this year." — Sight and Sound
Posted Dec 2, 2002
63% Saving Grace (2000) " In trying too hard to convince us what good eggs his characters are, Cole creates a shapeless, dramatically unengaging movie." — Sight and Sound
