Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

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

100% Odd Man Out (1947) Making an IRA leader sympathetic must have been risky in Britain in 1947‐ Artforum

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

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

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

88% White Material (2010) Dreamy and elliptical in its fractured timeline and visual lyricism, yet so searing and bloody that it's indelible. ‐ Artforum

93% 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

71% 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

88% Lady Macbeth (2017) As a reflection of the sick past in the cruel present, it glowers warningly -- an instant classic.‐ Culture Trip

45% 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

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

74% Nocturnal Animals (2016) [It's] one of the best American films of 2016.‐ Culture Trip

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

94% 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

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

79% 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

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

85% 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

74% 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

80% Personal Shopper (2017) KrisIt's ironic that so huge a star-a role Stewart is only now beginning to accept-should radiate more powerfully than any of her peers the frustrations experienced by ordinary mid-20-somethings.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) The film of Julian Barnes's rueful novel is softer than the original, but everyone with a romantic past-or future-should heed its warnings.‐ Culture Trip

90% Frantz (2017) It's one of the most beguilingly beautiful and heart-tugging films of the year so far.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
92% A Quiet Passion (2017) Whereas that masterpiece memorialized moments in the filmmaker's upbringing, A Quiet Passion memorializes invented moments in Emily Dickinson's long day's journey into night and makes them no less indelible.‐ Culture Trip

62% Slack Bay (Ma loute) (2017) Binoche's unbridled turn is tremendous fun to watch-she should horribly overact more often.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
80% Mr. Long (Ryu san) (2017) The trick Sabu pulls off is flipping Mr. Long from a Takashi Miike-like thriller to a Tampopo-like comedy and then back again: it's a seamless, stylish, protean genre mash-up full of surprises.‐ Culture Trip

75% A Woman's Life (Une vie) (2017) A mostly sedate French period drama, A Woman's Life twice delivers shocks with brilliant technical flourishes that fleetingly fracture the realist drama's steady rhythm.‐ Culture Trip

No Score Yet Somewhere Beautiful (2017) Unsurprisingly, it is the Patagonian strand that makes Somewhere Beautiful worth watching.‐ Culture Trip
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
71% Manifesto (2017) The disjunction between what's being said and who's saying it is intermittently amusing, but as the weighty speeches blend into an incoherent babble, the film becomes increasingly tedious.‐ Culture Trip

96% Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe (2017) An elegant, haunting drama directed by German filmmaker Maria Schrader.‐ Culture Trip

5/5 99% Taxi Driver (1976) Taxi Driver's undiminished power owes partially to Scorsese's harnessing of Michael Johnson's restless camerawork.‐ The Arts Desk

79% American Honey (2016) As it traverses the hinterland, providing windows into various social classes, each of which is fair game for Krystal, American Honey becomes a kind of bitter allegory of the American Dream.‐ Cineaste Magazine

88% A Monster Calls (2017) Bayona ... deluges his story - albeit well acted and technically-flawless - with emotionally coded representational imagery and hectors the viewer with stylistic shifts, mood swings, and frantic pacing.‐ Screen International
