3/5 63% Filth (2014) McAvoy, in a bad suit, rolls up his acting sleeves to play a study in deviousness and perversion and he does it brilliantly with just enough charm and humour...‐

5/5 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) This is Woody Allen in peak form. He has stripped out that jabbering New York paranoia and gleefully poked a big stick at America's ruling class.‐

3/5 No Score Yet The Weight Of Elephants (2013) Daniel Borgman has an eye for the visual poetry of his medium and his directorial debut shows great promise but eventually gets bogged down by the earnest weightiness of the script.‐
