Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 70% Golden Exits (2018) The movie is bogged down in misery and mutedness, and the effect is more suffocating than anything else.‐ The Skinny

4/5 96% Mudbound (2017) You could watch the beginning and end of this movie and understand its point, but the underlying ideological concerns help Mudbound remain involving throughout.‐ The Skinny

5/5 43% Song to Song (2017) In some ways Song to Song is a more straightforward narrative than the intensely personal Knight of Cups, but just as blindingly beautiful and formally distinctive.‐ The Skinny

2/5 72% The Birth of a Nation (2016) An important subject pre-digested and trivialised with a formulaic, vanity-project idea of seriousness.‐ The Skinny

5/5 67% Voyage of Time: Life's Journey (2016) A visually dense treat for lovers of Malick's brand of philosophical cinema.‐ The Skinny

3/5 93% Toni Erdmann (2016) Just as the film seems primed for a self-pitying, cheap-shot conclusion, there's a liberating set-piece of fumbling group adventure that achieves a mythic, cathartic quality.‐ The Skinny

4/5 91% Elle (2016) A study of victimhood without sentimentality, of iconic strength without forced sass... and of determinedly staking a claim over one's own life against manipulative forces. ‐ The Skinny

4/5 86% Sully (2016) Eastwood remains an American master, and if some of the finer details lack finesse, such quibbles are subsumed by the overall emotional whomp.‐ The Skinny

2/5 86% Goodnight Mommy (Ich seh, Ich seh) (2015) While it grasps at deep thoughts about grief and perversion, Goodnight Mommy feels a specious ruse to show extreme cruelty.‐ The Skinny

4/5 95% Carol (2015) The film never really goes for crescendo, rather it simmers a cauldron of heated but restrained emotions and sensations - gorgeously.‐ The Skinny

5/5 81% Sunset Song (2016) Stays true to Davies's lushly pained, deliberate style and builds into a sweeping chronicle of land and emotion that could fairly be called a Scottish answer to Gone with the Wind.‐ The Skinny

4/5 97% Tangerine (2015) A brilliant standalone piece of rhythmic storytelling, throwing itself at the audience as a ball of momentum that rolls to a tender, touching stop. ‐ The Skinny

3/5 60% High-Rise (2016) Hints at going in a Clockwork Orange direction before Wheatley loses formal control in parallel to his characters.‐ The Skinny

5/5 100% My Darling Clementine (1946) Simple in its storytelling while transcendent as a poem of rhythms, bonds and values.‐ The Skinny

4/5 94% Hard to be a God (2015) Bewildering, darkly hilarious, something of an endurance test, and made with such epic scale and precision that it's also breathtaking.‐ The Skinny

5/5 91% Paper Moon (1973) Sweet, playful, reverberant - this is a perfect movie.‐ The Skinny

5/5 88% The Tribe (2015) A substantive emotional compendium that's passionately, hypnotically shattering.‐ The Skinny

4/5 96% A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) Righteous, shocking, terrifying, iconic, funny, twistedly romantic and refreshingly unpredictable.‐ The Skinny

5/5 97% It Follows (2015) A bold, terrifying attack of cinema, immersive on the levels of imagery both beautiful and grotesque, and scares from the shallowest to the most pervasive.‐ The Skinny
