1/5 5% Miss March (2009) If this film were as racist as it is sexist (which it very nearly is), it would be a buddy movie about the madcap antics of two Klan members on a lynching spree. Appalling. If we could give it zero out of five, we would. - Film4 EDIT

85% 500 Days of Summer (2009) A new take on romantic comedy that doesn't quite live up to its ambitions. - Film4 EDIT

2/5 29% Mad, Sad & Bad (2009) All we learn from Mad, Sad & Bad is that, while a decent comedy can aspire to get away with all sorts of things, a lack of imagination shouldn't be one of them. - Film4 EDIT

2.5/5 69% The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (2009) It's disappointing that a film that starts out explicitly stating its intentions to unpick an enigma ends up continually re-presenting us with a beautiful cipher. - Film4 EDIT

4/5 82% Párpados Azules (Blue Eyelids) (2007) A beautifully made film about two people with no ability to relate to each other, attempting to do just that. - Film4 EDIT

3.5/5 66% Patti Smith: Dream of Life (2008) An extraordinarily intimate portrait of an extraordinary woman, Dream of Life charms despite being filmed through a sycophantic haze. - Film4 EDIT

4/5 64% zenzen daijobu (Fine, Totally Fine) (2008) A charming and funny tale of a bunch of sadsack losers piecing their lives together, Fine, Totally Fine combines slapstick and poignancy to create a gently beguiling romantic comedy. - Film4 EDIT

4/5 100% Man on Wire (2008) A quietly inspirational true-life tale of a larger-than-life oddball told with measure and restraint. - Film4 EDIT

3/5 40% 27 Dresses (2008) A palatable, frothy chick-flick confection with just enough fire in its belly to hold the attention and a star turn by Katherine Heigl, at heart this is as pleasantly vacuous as they come: 27 dresses and nothing going on. - Film4 EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet Lady Godiva (2008) Relentlessly awful to the point of unintentional comedy, this Godiva would do well to get off the horse and put her clothes back on. - Film4 EDIT

2/5 66% The Jane Austen Book Club (2007) Comfortable if unchallenging, watching this gentle, female-oriented film is a bit like curling up in bed with a book whose ending you already know. No alarms and no surprises. - Film4 EDIT

3/5 48% Macbeth (2006) Good-looking and well-meaning, this Macbeth falls some way short of its intentions, but nevertheless breathes glamorous and sadistic new life into an old story. - Film4 EDIT
