84% Darkest Hour (2017) A stirring but flawed World War II film.‐ Culture Trip

1/5 73% Station To Station (2015) Organised by the artist Doug Aitken, the marathon must have brought the contributors and audiences much pleasure. His film of it is underwhelming.‐ The Arts Desk

3/5 95% The Salt of the Earth (2015) Wenders doesn't miss the opportunity to announce, via a closing title, that "The destruction of nature can be reversed". Human nature, The Salt of the Earth suggests, could also use a rethink.‐ The Arts Desk

5/5 97% Man With a Movie Camera (1929) A masterpiece of avant-garde experimentalism and, fleetingly, an unexpected critique of the continuing class struggle.‐ The Arts Desk

97% Mudbound (2017) Except in one instance, the story is not overtly sentimentalized. Rees has been well served in this by her excellent ensemble. ‐ Culture Trip

3/5 89% A Fuller Life (2014) A Fuller Life is too small and too celebratory to contain analysis -- and the unpretentious Fuller would have thanked God for that, whatever he might have said to himself. Nonetheless, it's a solid primer about a remarkable man's journey.‐ The Arts Desk

86% Song of Granite (2017) Song of Granite was filmed in black and white by Richard Kendrick and is staggeringly beautiful.‐ Culture Trip

93% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) A genuine anti-heroine, she has infinite humanity.‐ Culture Trip

No Score Yet Daughter of the Nile (Ni luo he nu er) (1987) [Hou Hsia-hsein's] observation of the fading, if garish, Taipei of the 1980s through the eyes of an as-yet-unformed young woman who has suffered tragedy and expects to suffer more endows the film with special poignancy.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Because Farrell, bushy-bearded here, clearly wasn't allowed to act sympathetically, it's hard to feel much empathy for Steven-a fatal error.‐ Culture Trip

30% Wonder Wheel (2017) It would be going too far to say Wonder Wheel is an instant Woody Allen classic, but it's a reminder that he's still a force to be reckoned with and a great director of actresses especially.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2017
99% Lady Bird (2017) A film of tenderness and wit, Lady Bird astutely captures the nature of the internecine warfare that habitually exists between girls in late adolescence and their mothers.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
73% Last Flag Flying (2017) Last Flag Flying is a film that revels in its ambiguities, which extend to its genre-hopping: it's at once a war movie set on the home front, a road movie, and a comedy-drama.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2017
58% Lemon (2017) The button-pushing indie comedy Lemon seems like a character study of an obnoxious loser, but it's much more than that.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2017
84% Polina (Polina, danser sa vie) (2017) As a movie about finding your feet-in holding on to your essential self and relocating your mislaid artistic integrity-Polina is ultimately en pointe.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2017
77% Crown Heights (2017) This is a timely film about institutionalized racism in America, and related issues of ghettoization and violence within black communities. It won't get as much fanfare as Moonlight, but it needs to be seen.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
33% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) Marc Webb's The Only Living Boy in New York is an Oedipal drama if ever there was one. ‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
100% Brighton Rock (1947) Although the movie depicts Brighton's masses at play in the sun, its true world is that of film noir. ‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
85% Lorna's Silence (2008) The noirish ambience (if not style) underscores the heinousness of those who traffic in human lives for their own ends-a central tenet of the Dardennes' work.‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
100% Odd Man Out (1947) Making an IRA leader sympathetic must have been risky in Britain in 1947‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
100% Rembrandt's J'accuse (2008) Rembrandt's J'Accuse-the first of nine documentaries Greenaway is making about classic paintings-is rigorous and enthralling. ‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
89% Harlan - Im Schatten von Jud Süss (Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Seuss) (2010) Whatever florid talent Harlan had, he apparently had no scruples.‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
100% L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot (Henri-George Clouzot's Inferno) (2010) The documentary's investigative work goes only so far, but the images the great director created are revelatory. ‐ Artforum

79% Nowhere Boy (2010) Given Lennon's wayward streak, Nowhere Boy is oddly safe and functional.‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
88% White Material (2010) Dreamy and elliptical in its fractured timeline and visual lyricism, yet so searing and bloody that it's indelible. ‐ Artforum
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
92% Dunkirk (2017) Despite its underpopulated canvas, Dunkirk is an object lesson in vivid, non-gratuitous pictorialism.‐ Culture Trip

4/5 100% Victim (1961) Dirk Bogarde is needle-sharp as Melville Farr, a sophisticated London barrister with a successful practice who is about to become a QC - and whose tamping down of his homosexuality has filled him with angst.‐ The Arts Desk

68% To the Bone (2017) It's the mesmerizing Collins, though, who holds the film together and makes it one of Netflix's most urgent. If you're a teenager, or have got teenage relatives, it's a must-see.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
89% Lady Macbeth (2017) As a reflection of the sick past in the cruel present, it glowers warningly -- an instant classic.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
46% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) Never mind the technical innovations, Stewart and the affecting newcomer Alwyn are the two main reasons why Billy Lynn deserves our votes this week.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2017
94% Arrival (2016) Arrival is an emotionally involving science-fiction drama, which in its mood of cosmic anxiety, is closer in spirit to Steven Soderbergh's Solaris remake than to Robert Zemeckis's New Age-y Contact, one of its obvious precursors. ‐ Culture Trip

73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) [It's] one of the best American films of 2016.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2017
92% La La Land (2016) This bittersweet musical valentine to Los Angeles - which stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling - is delivered with MGM magic and Jacques Demy's earthbound élan.‐ Culture Trip

96% Paterson (2016) Serenity prevails in Jim Jarmusch's tale of a New Jersey bus driver with a penchant for poetry, a loving girlfriend with a zany taste in design, and a dog with an Oedipus complex.‐ Culture Trip

68% The Journey (2017) Though there are flashes of sentimentality in the old man, Spall doesn't make him an ingratiating figure. But he does help us to understand him. It's a great performance that'll hopefully be remembered come awards season.‐ Culture Trip

71% Staying Vertical (Rester vertical) (2017) Guiraudie demystifies sex as a visual spectacle by reducing it to the animal, though that's not to say it can't take on a spiritual dimension.‐ Culture Trip

95% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) The latest movie from Japan's Studio Ghibli - a fresh take on Robinson Crusoe - breaks with the fantastical Miyazaki style, but sets a new standard for inspired minimalist animation.‐ Culture Trip

43% Gold (2017) As a vehicle for McConaughey's calculated showboating, it's beguiling, but in these troubled times it feels a little indulgent.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Aided by Johansson's considerable action chops and birthday-suit look, Ghost in the Shell is destined to be a box-office smash. It might also provoke charges of cultural imperialism, as did Björk and Barney. Watch this space.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Fans of the books and the first movie will nonetheless relish it as a tame contemporary bodice-ripper flick. Others can savor it as a satirical critique of the co-opting of BDSM by the conspicuous consumerism embodied by its billionaire Alpha male hero.‐ Culture Trip

98% Kedi (2017) You don't have to be a cat lover to appreciate the film. ‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
32% In Dubious Battle (2017) It's one of those flawed films you watch for its formidable cast. ‐ Culture Trip

61% Snowden (2016) What Snowden lacks in muscular storytelling, it makes up for in style. ‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
78% American Honey (2016) British writer-director Andrea Arnold's fourth feature is long, rambling, and unvarnished.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
85% Amanda Knox (2016) Amanda Knox has been gussied up with dramatic music and slow-motion camera effects that reinforce the notion that it is entertainment. This, of course, is an insult to the memory of Kercher, who died horribly and is dead forever. ‐ Culture Trip

92% Certain Women (2016) An eight-hour trip on a highway doesn't equal eight hours in a wagon dragged by mules ... but that's not to mitigate the pain experienced by some 21st-century women living way out west. Reichardt knows this as sure as the turning of the earth.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) It's rare for a mainstream movie to lavish such time and attention on a woman's yearning for a child and her requited maternal passion - especially one directed by a man.‐ Culture Trip

86% Sully (2016) Lo, the multitudes (excepting the unwashed disciples of indie films) rejoice in the One Tom's espousal of the American Way once again, for it inspires them to save the day in their abodes and workplaces.‐ Culture Trip

73% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) The grainy images feed Vincent's growing paranoia - as the sickly green night-vision goggle images shared by Antarès and his men as they patrol their valley heighten their dread of what's out there.‐ Culture Trip

56% Hieronymus Bosch, Touched by the Devil (Jheronimus Bosch, Touched By The Devil) (2016) Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil tells a potent story of executive maneuverings and barter but it skimps on the devilry. ‐ Culture Trip
