Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 90% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) It would require a true curmudgeon to not derive pleasure from that twinkling performance from Redford, radiating smoothness, wisdom and charm to the very end.‐ Guardian

3/5 81% Her Smell (2018) An uneven, unsettling film.‐ Guardian

4/5 100% Gloria Bell (2019) Gloria Bell pairs perhaps the best portrayer of troubled or lost women with a director who has built a career building stories around them, and the result is a film that comfortably banishes any fears of some neutered US remake.‐ Guardian

1/5 13% Life Itself (2018) You rarely get the sense of Fogelman's characters being complex figures with internal lives - instead they're merely there to smile weakly through whatever trauma their sadistic creator puts them through.‐ Guardian

4/5 96% The Hate U Give (2018) This is mass-market entertainment with a radical bent, a loudspeaker blast of a teen movie.‐ Guardian

4/5 81% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) Few can match Moore's gift for agitprop mischief when he's in this mood, and things build to an apocalyptic crescendo, complete with warnings of authoritarianism, armed insurrection, and even nuclear war.‐ Guardian

3/5 No Score Yet Lost in Vagueness (2017) Here is a documentary that should provide a balm of sorts to anyone pining for Glastonbury in a fallow year for the festival - though one whose charms might be somewhat lost on non-attendees.‐ Guardian

88% Happy as Lazzaro (Lazzaro felice) (2018) With Happy as Lazzaro, Rohrwacher has crafted a magic-realist fable that doubles as an origin myth for a modern Italy subsumed by corruption and decline.‐ Guardian

2/5 33% Fahrenheit 451 (2018) The film never really grapples with the knotty ideas behind the works it namedrops.‐ Guardian

4/5 92% Arctic (2019) Here is a gripping and efficient addition to the rugged survivalist thriller genre, a realm where men are men and howling lamentations at the unforgiving sky is seen as entirely acceptable behaviour.‐ Guardian

3/5 88% Rafiki (2018) This is a story that may have been told before, sure, but never in this context before. That alone seems worth celebrating.‐ Guardian

3/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) An exhausting, exhilarating watch.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
3/5 93% Icarus (2017) It's hard to deny the power of Icarus's message and the remarkable nature of its delivery.‐ Guardian

2/5 18% The House (2017) The exuberant comic talents of Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler are largely wasted in this uninspired addition to the frat movie canon, which resembles reheated leftovers of the Hangover, albeit with a curious detour into some heavy bloodletting.‐ Guardian

3/5 88% Dying Laughing (2017) The endless conveyor belt of talking heads does rather lose its lustre over time, and some actual standup would have been welcome, but there's a dizzying amount of insight ...‐ Guardian

4/5 93% Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower (2017) Teenager vs Superpower does a solid job of contextualising this larger ideological battle, with talking heads and archive footage, but it's always clear that the focus here is Wong.‐ Guardian

3/5 97% I Am Not a Witch (2018) Nyoni has delivered a pulsingly odd and strikingly original debut: a tale of dogma, prejudice and corruption in the country of her birth.‐ Guardian

4/5 96% Filmworker (2018) A revealing and stirring celebration of one of cinema's unacknowledged heroes.‐ Guardian

4/5 88% Get Me Roger Stone (2017) Stone himself would revel in the fact that so many people will be watching and seething silently at this documentary. There's no such thing as bad publicity, after all.‐ Guardian

4/5 No Score Yet Mad Max: Fury Road: Black & Chrome (2016) There are a few occasions when the quick-cut action becomes difficult to follow in black and white, but this is otherwise an intriguing counterpoint to an idiosyncratic minor masterpiece.‐ Guardian

3/5 92% LA 92 (2017) Arresting, certainly, but also something of a missed opportunity.‐ Guardian

3/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Things race along at such a ferocious lick you scarcely have time to question the moments of incongruity (chiefly, how can so many supercars be also somehow explosion-retardant).‐ Guardian

2/5 55% City of Tiny Lights (2016) Too often City of Tiny Lights is let down by an overeagerness to play up its source material, and hampered by unnecessarily showy direction and inadvisable attempts at gumshoe dialogue.‐ Guardian

2/5 17% CHIPS (2017) Shepard and Pena do at least throw themselves into proceedings with elan, but they can't prevent CHiPs from seeming a distinctly second-gear affair.‐ Guardian

3/5 100% Seoul Station (2016) At times it is oppressively morose, but it has a nice dusting of social realism to go with the violence, and reaches an agreeably nasty conclusion.‐ Guardian

4/5 100% Uncertain (2017) Uncertain is a vivid, pungent ode into a world that is fast disappearing.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
3/5 No Score Yet Don't Take Me Home (2017) This is a fairly workaday affair, but in its brisk, cheerful telling it does a solid job of evoking the thrill of the Dragons' unlikely run.‐ Guardian

4/5 73% Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1973) The moment where Bowie announces that this is "the last show that we'll ever do", to the screams and groans of the audience (most of whom assumed it was he, not Ziggy, who was retiring) remains utterly bracing.‐ Guardian

2/5 67% Tomato Red (2017) Ultimately it's a case of all surface, no feeling.‐ Guardian
