Posted May 9, 2007
80% Front Page Woman (1935) "Absurd at times, with the two papers at one point printing absolutely identical stories, but directed and acted with sparkle and speed. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 24, 2007
No Score Yet Meet Me at the Fair "Sirk's customary concern with hypocrisy and intolerance is, given the genre and overall tone of the piece, surprisingly to the fore in a subplot about corrupt politicians. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 24, 2007
81% Slap Shot (1977) "There are still some nice touches of absurdist satirical wit hanging out along the sidelines, given extra bite by Dede Allen's superbly pacy editing. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 14, 2007
32% The Good German (2007) "Why emphasise flaws in a film of such overall ambition and expertise? " ‐ Time Out
Posted Mar 8, 2007
54% The Good Shepherd (2006) "The film's watchable enough if you're indulgent of its flaws but at 167 minutes it does tax the patience. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Feb 15, 2007
88% Dial M for Murder (1954) "It all moves along in a rather efficient if lifeless fashion, with only John Williams shining as a canny police detective. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 4, 2007
81% A Prairie Home Companion (2006) "Just lovely, and a magnificently enjoyable coda to an extraordinary career. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jan 4, 2007
73% Flags of Our Fathers (2006) "Here, the feelings run very deep, and dark as dried blood, with Clint aware that some things don't need to be said and others shouldn't be shown. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Dec 30, 2006
82% L' Amico di Famiglia (The Family Friend) (Friend of the Family) (2006) "All the surface style is properly wrapped around ideas of substance. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 29, 2006
56% Wedding Director (Il Regista di Matrimoni) (2008) "The humour's less hit than miss, and a little of Castellitto's melancholia goes a very long way. Disappointing. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 29, 2006
100% The Lost Squadron (1932) "With a cynically acidic script by Herman J Mankiewicz, among others, this early talkie is one of the most enjoyably scabrous examples of Hollywood on Hollywood. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 4, 2006
78% The Page Turner (La Tourneuse de pages) (2006) "Denis Dercourt's stylish, subtle and highly assured film is a pleasingly suspenseful psychological drama in the style of Hitchcock or early Chabrol. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Nov 2, 2006
98% Ten Canoes (2007) "Wise, warm, witty fare. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 30, 2006

Posted Oct 30, 2006
71% Lights in the Dusk (2007) "Kaurismäki's delightfully delicate cautionary fable charts his unassuming hero's descent into an unforeseen nightmare of deceit and violence with a characteristically low-key blend of humane compassion and deadpan mordant humour. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 30, 2006
49% Candy (2006) "[A] slightly over-familiar but neatly told story of a sexual/romantic passion at once partly fuelled and blighted by drug addiction. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
100% The Heart of the World (2001) "Maddin's brilliant, delirious short is a spot-on pastiche/parody of a silent Soviet propaganda epic, full of phallic symbols, visionary heroes and splendidly emphatic montage. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
5/6 94% The Singer (Quand j'etais chanteur) (2006) "An admirably tough, ambivalent and honest look at the fraught relationship between real feelings and the culturally acceptable (or otherwise) public expression of similar emotions as manipulative entertainment. Excellent. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
93% The Lives of Others (2006) "The complex but lucid script and Hagen Bogndanski's sombre noir camerawork serve not only to establish a brooding atmosphere of fear, doubt and suspicion but to create a suspenseful thriller of political and moral relevance. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
83% Ride Lonesome (1959) "Beautifully scripted by Burt Kennedy, with excellent performances all round as the characters evolve through subtly shifting loyalties and ambitions, it's a small masterpiece. " ‐ Time Out

85% Bamako (2006) "Very important, very impressive. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 28, 2006
95% The Woman in the Window (1944) "It's not merely a dazzling piece of suspense, but also a characteristically stark demonstration of Lang's belief in the inevitability of fate. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Oct 16, 2006
79% Coma (1978) "See it and worry. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 30, 2006
86% Quinceañera (2006) "Touching, charming and very engagingly played, it offers perceptive insights into LA Latino culture as well as solid, slightly old-fashioned entertainment. " ‐ Time Out

63% Allegro (2006) "Inventive, entertaining and pleasingly bold. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Sep 23, 2006
47% Miami Vice (2006) "It's business as usual for Mann. Truly terrific. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Aug 3, 2006
89% Little Fish (2006) "It's a sober, sensitive film ... about degrees of dependency, grief, guilt, recrimination and recuperation. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jul 20, 2006
86% Blow-Up (1966) "As often with Antonioni, a film riddled with moments of brilliance and scuppered by infuriating pretensions. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
90% Alphaville (1965) "One of Godard's most sheerly enjoyable movies, a dazzling amalgam of film noir and science fiction. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
95% Stranger Than Paradise (1984) "Not a lot to it, certainly, but the acting and performances combine to produce an obliquely effective study of the effect of landscape upon emotion, and the wry, dry humour is often quite delicious. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
48% XXX (2002) "If Dubya and Dick Cheney had made their very own post-9/11 patriotic propaganda movie for the teens they need as globalisation fodder, then this would be it. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
90% Serpico (1973) "Another problem, these days, is Pacino's characterisation; he seems at times more like a misplaced hippy than a plainclothes cop. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
79% Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983) "For all the praise heaped upon Oshima's admittedly ambitious film about East-West relations in the microcosm of a Japanese PoW camp during World War II, it's far less satisfactory than most of his earlier work. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
87% Macbeth (1950) "Adventurous film-making that takes risks, and full of imaginative flourishes. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
100% They Live by Night (1948) "Passionate, lyrical, and imaginative, it's a remarkably assured debut, from the astonishing opening helicopter shot that follows the escaped convicts' car to freedom, to the final, inexorably tragic climax. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
97% In a Lonely Place (1950) "Never were despair and solitude so romantically alluring. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
69% Cliffhanger (1993) "Fun for the undemanding, but Stallone's 'comeback' should have been much tighter. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006

Posted Jun 24, 2006
92% The Immortal Story (1968) "Though shot for television on a low budget, this is a sumptuous experience. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
42% Don't Come Knocking (2006) "By the time we get to the point where the camera is endlessly circling Shepard sitting on a sofa in the middle of the street, it feels as if he and his director were making things up as they went along. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
56% Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) "What this sequel delivers is still the kind of high-speed roller-coaster action that producer Joel Silver's films often do so well. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
43% Timecop (1994) "Hyams is no stranger to large-scale sci-fi, so his management of the massive sets and slightly mechanical fx is more than adequate. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
91% Million Dollar Baby (2004) "Quietly quite magnificent. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
76% Gladiator (2000) "The cast is strong (notably Nielsen as Commodus's vacillating sister, and the late Oliver Reed, unusually endearing as a gladiator owner), the pacing lively, and the sets, swordplay and Scud catapults impressive. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
83% The China Syndrome (1979) "All a bit too earnest, despite the seriousness of the subject, with Fonda setting her jaw and stepping into father's footsteps as Tinseltown's very own protector of humanity; but it's tightly scripted and directed, and genuinely tense in places. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
58% The Importance of Being Earnest (2002) "You might suppose that Oscar Wilde's theatrical evergreen is indestructible. But that would be to reckon without the intervention of 'writer'/director Parker, who really makes a pig's ear of this silk purse. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
92% Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) "Raucous, vulgar, over long. " ‐ Time Out
Posted Jun 24, 2006
54% Romance & Cigarettes (2007) "Turturro pulls off a very tricky balancing act, by trusting in the expertise of his performers and by infusing the whole film with energy and affection. " ‐ Time Out
