Tormented (2009)

"A slasher for the Twitter generation, Tormented catches the spirit of the times without being too try-hard. Quips and snogging take precedence over scares, but its commentary on new technology's power to intimidate is chillingly apt." ‐ Total Film

Shifty (2008)

"Mercifully free of Danny Dyer cameos or Guy Ritchie mockneyisms, this works as both an entertaining gangster thriller and a hard-hitting piece of social realism. Absorbing, moving and authentic, Shifty never once strikes a false note." ‐ Total Film

Flammen & Citronen (Flame & Citron) (The Flame and the Lemon) (2008)

"Director Ole Christian Madsen has opted rather to make a kind of action thriller-meets-film noir hybrid, and yet visually, at least, it works." ‐ Little White Lies

Rachel Getting Married (2008)

"You'll be very glad you were invited because this is a friendly, unpretentious bash, with not a meringue dress in sight. The speeches are funny, the music is ace and the mood falls just the right side of sentimental mushiness." ‐ Little White Lies

Good Dick (2008)

"The Kevin Smith-esque dude banter might place Dick in a US indie tradition, but there's also an honesty to the script and performances that's genuinely original and touching." ‐ Total Film

Angel (2007)

"Like Ozon's 8 Women, the costumes are magnificent and Angel's mansion is a shrine to the gods of bad taste. All that's missing is a heroine worthy of Bette Davis in her heyday." ‐ Total Film

Make It Happen (2008)

"It's all just filler between the dance scenes, which are admittedly fun. Think Pussycat Dolls with slightly more clothes on. Unrepentantly formulaic, but enjoyable all the same." ‐ Total Film

Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic (2005)

"By the end you'll feel like a bored parent trapped in the front row of the school play." ‐ Total Film

The Waiting Room (2007)

"Instead of an exciting big-screen debut, this feels like a Cold Feet episode, written by a fan of Brief Encounter. Duff deserves a bigger challenge." ‐ Total Film

Captain Eager and the Mark of Voth (2008)

"This kind of thing has been done before and it's been done better, too." ‐ Total Film

Mister Lonely (2007)

"In a choice between traditional and safe and experimental and flawed, opt for the latter every time." ‐ Little White Lies

Anna M. (2007)

"Unfortunately, as director Michel Spinosa has discovered, making a Fatal Attraction-esque thriller that's also a serious study of mental illness is a lot harder than it sounds." ‐ Total Film

Inside Planet Earth (2008)

"Every frame shouts, "save the planet!" louder than a roaring pride of Kalahari lions - and when you've seen the film, you'll know just how loud that is." ‐ Total Film

The Walker (2007)

"Harrelson is an entertaining mix of Old South camp and quiet pathos but neither he nor the script's desultory attempts at post-9/11 commentary are enough to elevate it above the level of a pretentious John Grisham adaptation." ‐ Little White Lies
