T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 91% The Kindergarten Teacher (2018) Gyllenhaal is superb at capturing the teacher's conflicting motivations, but the contrasting of mediocrity and genius is a little extreme. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

3/5 75% Old Boys (2018) The tropes and jokes are old, but MacDonald wrings plenty of fun out of his setting. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

4/5 90% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) [Labaki] never shows us the worst abuse in Zain's underworld, instead giving the piece emotional force through a crushing build-up of everyday incident. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Waiting for You (2017) If you can overlook the contrivances, the mystery element of Charles Garrad's slow-burning drama is gently intriguing. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

2/5 24% Overboard (2018) Playing the straight woman, Faris never gets to showcase her comic talents: she would have been wiser to have jumped ship on this stale reboot a while back. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

2/5 92% Arcadia (2017) It makes for pretty tedious watching, though the harsher side of our treatment of animals and an eerie score from Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) give it an edge. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

3/5 89% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) To [Sara Driver's] credit, however, she doesn't shy away from the darker side of his story, and the radical downtown art scene that made Basquiat comes through blazing. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

1/5 75% Mom and Dad (2018) Its central purpose seems to be to give Cage the chance to lose it, on repeat, for its duration. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

3/5 84% The Divine Order (Die göttliche Ordnung) (2017) Leuenberger is a shyly brilliant heroine, but formulaic set pieces and improbable character arcs rob the film of distinctiveness. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

4/5 96% Sweet Country (2018) A muscular drama with impressive depth. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT

3/5 91% The Nile Hilton Incident (2017) Atmosphere is strong, the seedy darkness of a city on the brink of eruption is all there, but it lapses into a binary case of good cop, bad cops. - Sunday Times (UK) EDIT
