4/5 No Score Yet Winter "Flanagan, after a career built on being the Glaswegian heavy in the background, there to add a bit of character or menace, comes into his own in the lead. His physical performance is superb. " ‐ Eye for Film

3/5 98% Finders Keepers (2015) "The film is a hodge-podge of archive clips and interview material but it just about gels and a host of smaller scale family stories round it out nicely. " ‐ Eye for Film

5/5 72% Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1973) "Indisputably one of the greatest concert films ever made, DA Pennebaker's striking work captures those last moments onstage in all their glory. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Feb 22, 2016
4.5/5 95% Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) "Taylor has the capacity to be dowdy yet glamorous, crude yet sensual at the same time. This is a career best performance for her. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 22, 2016
3 No Score Yet How To Win Enemies (Cómo Ganar Enemigos) "Slipak gives Lucas a vitality and natural effervescence that keep us with him even as he expresses his suspicions about the people around him. " ‐ Eye for Film

3.5/5 No Score Yet Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of the Shoah (2015) "Having created such an important historical record, Lanzmann himself has become a historical subject, and there are distinct parallels between the interview techniques he describes using and he gentle way he is prompted to push his own boundaries. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Feb 22, 2016
3.5/5 50% That Demon Within (Mo Jing) (2014) "Wu keeps us caring with an intense yet nuanced performance, as if relishing the chance to break out of the romantic hero mould that characterised his early career. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 22, 2016
3.5/5 86% Gored (2016) "This documentary captures what may be the last of Antonio Barrera's bullfighting days at a time when the sport itself seems about to fade into history. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Feb 22, 2016
3/5 55% Hyena Road (2016) "It's one of the better films about the Afghan conflicts but it struggles to strike a balance between connecting with real soldiers' experiences and contributing something interesting to the genre. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 17, 2016
3.5/5 80% The Last Survivors (The Well) (2014) "It's a film that depends heavily on its central performance. Richardson shines in what was her first major film role, giving Kendal a roundedness rarely seen in either genre. " ‐ Eye for Film

4/5 57% Jeruzalem (2016) "On the surface its story is slight - demonic horrors are unleashed and people run around trying to survive - but there's much more going on in a film which amply deserves the awards it has received. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3/5 17% Durant's Never Closes "Durant's Never Closes is unlikely to be a breakthrough film, but where Durant is remembered as a local force to be reckoned with, it will have strong audience appeal. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Jan 16, 2016
4/5 95% We Are Still Here (2015) "Full of smart and not always subtle references to horror film classics, especially those of European origin, and to New England literature, We Are Still Here is a treat for educated fans. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Dec 31, 2015
4/5 91% James White (2015) "Most films dealing with illness and carer relationships follow the same emotional paths and miss the same points. This film, by contrast, feels fresh and real even to those of us who have been there. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Dec 17, 2015
2.5/5 67% When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism (2015) "If you're intrigued by experimental film, you may find it delightful. If you loved Birdman, you probably deserve it. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3.5/5 75% Counting (2015) " In an early scene, a fragment of newspaper drifts into view, its headline proclaiming The World's Last Mysteries, and you might wonder if the world we have created is every bit as potent with obscure possibility as the one it has replaced. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Dec 17, 2015
1.5/5 52% I Smile Back (2015) "The sort of reductionism one finds in cautionary videos made for schools, with equally weak logic. " ‐ Eye for Film

2/5 95% Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom (2015) "This is a Jerry Bruckheimer approach to televising the revolution. " ‐ Eye for Film

4.5/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "Adam McKay draws on the talents of a strong ensemble cast to create a docudrama that places difficult individuals in context, making them easier to understand and intriguing to watch even if they're not always likeable. " ‐ Eye for Film

2/5 89% Stink! (2015) "A rather slipshod approach to the science of the subject undermines what might otherwise be a very strong film. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Nov 24, 2015
4.5/5 No Score Yet Gabo: The Creation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Gabo, la magia de lo real) "This is an impressively thorough and comprehensive account. It doesn't attempt to match the poetry of its subject's own storytelling but its narrative, like his, is open to interpretation in many different ways, and richer for it. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Nov 24, 2015
3/5 36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) "One might begin to wonder if the franchise is running out of steam - until an amazing last quarter hour which, even with OTT promises in place, manages to turn all the dials one higher. " ‐ Eye for Film

4/5 89% Whirlpool (1949) "Ferrer is wonderfully sleazy as Korvo and makes the perfect foil for Tierney. " ‐ Eye for Film
