Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 28% Suburbicon (2017) This screenplay has been around for a while and it's a shame it didn't remain on the slush pile, for the Coens and Clooney are better than this.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 90% Lean on Pete (2018) Andrew Haigh is not one to shy from painful emotion in his films and Lean on Pete is no exception.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 91% Our Souls at Night (2017) Robert Redford and Jane Fonda make such a magnificent couple, still exuding beauty and intelligence; particularly Fonda as Addie, who positively shines.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 95% The Shape of Water (2017) A charming, beautifully filmed movie that appeals on many levels and is a song to cinema and to love.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 95% The Florida Project (2017) Steeped in glorious colour under the warm glow of a Florida sun, Sean Baker's The Florida Project is as indelible and warm as it looks.‐ HeyUGuys

5/5 85% You Were Never Really Here (2018) An exhilarating, tense and beautiful film.‐ HeyUGuys

99% BPM (Beats Per Minute) (120 battements par minute) (2017) 120 Beats Per Minute is a powerful film dealing with people politicised by a disease and is a tribute to the people who fought and continue to fight for all our rights.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 91% Good Time (2017) Robert Pattinson is tremendous. He completely dominates the film and is in virtually every scene.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) So what would Sofia Coppola, one of a handful of female directors in competition in Cannes, bring to the story that is new by viewing it from a woman's perspective? The answer is: very little.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 79% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) Lanthimos has again given us something unique and hopefully, thanks in part to its stellar leads and a more superficially mainstream storyline, he will attain an even wider audience.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 96% The Rider (2018) While this is a familiar theme that viewers have watched countless times, the way Zhao has scripted and directed The Rider makes it something new.‐ HeyUGuys

2/5 28% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2016) As with most sci-fi, this film deals with contemporary issues: namely, don't treat your planet badly and learn to live harmoniously. Yet there is little sci-fi here, probably due to budget limitations.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
4/5 93% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) Noah Baumbach has consistently written and directed intelligent comedies that take an intimate and warm view of dysfunctional families. The Meyerowitz Stories continues that theme and takes it up a notch.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 84% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) Despite the high body count, Blade of the Immortal is both extremely funny and very warm.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
3/5 86% Okja (2017) The weakness of the film is that it really should be for children, but the amount of swearing and violence is clearly aimed at an adult audience.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
2/5 71% Wonderstruck (2017) While the story of stars aligning and destinies repeating themselves and overlapping is appealing, in this story they align a little too neatly, leaving you less wonderstruck and more dumbfounded as to the story's credibility.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
4/5 92% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) Yet another giant piece of filmmaking from this fascinating director.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
50% The Beat Beneath My Feet (2016) The Beat Beneath My Feet offers a fond reminder of why we all loved Luke and introduces a bright young talent in its lead.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 No Score Yet Low Tide (2012) Blanchard captures our attention and doesn't let it go as we follow him from supermarket to care home (where he helps his mother do her job) and riverbed to slaughterhouse.‐ CineVue

2/5 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Cianfrance's mesmeric eye for heartbreak is dulled here. The waters are muddied and the pull of The Light Between Oceans falters, despite some fine cinematography. ‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/5 73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) This is a finely crafted, visually sumptuous film with fine performances all round. ‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
1/5 38% Brimstone (2017) A hellish horror story that is far too pleased to gaze on the suffering of women.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
4/5 88% Jackie (2016) Jackie is Larrain's first foray into English-language film and his first attempt to tackle non-Chilean political issues. The result is supremely accomplished and fascinating.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
2/5 41% The Bad Batch (2017) Despite good work done by some of the cast this post-apocalyptic cannibal tale wanders in the desert for far too long. ‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
4/5 100% One More Time With Feeling (2016) It's a beautiful tribute to a lost child, and to love overriding death.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2016
3/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Like Saving Private Ryan or Unbroken, this true story is so incredible that it seems like something Dreamworks would make up‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2016
4/5 89% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) [Brady Corbet] makes his directorial feature debut with The Childhood of a Leader, and what an explosive and thrilling debut it is.‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 87% The Student ((M)uchenik) (2017) This is not your usual hormonal angst, but a full-blown religious breakdown. ‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 23, 2016
3/5 93% Toni Erdmann (2016) This is a tender and funny film, which suffers from being overly long, but Ade is a skilled craftswoman and gifted screenwriter.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 23, 2016
1/5 5% The Last Face (2017) This hotchpotch of a story, which lacks clarity and sense, is almost unwatchable.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
2/5 58% The Neon Demon (2016) Hugely disappointing as there is a brilliant film lurking inside Refn, but this bloody mess is not it.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
4/5 98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) Barras has bravely tackled an almost taboo subject and made it palatable and manageable for children and adults alike.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) An intriguing, sometimes daft and occasionally terrifying supernatural drama.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 18, 2016
2/5 78% American Honey (2016) Teeming with amazing shots there's no denying that Andrea Arnold has a wonderful eye - but these visual delights are not enough to hold this lengthy and ultimately tedious film together.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 96% Paterson (2016) An ode to Paterson and to poetry itself.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 90% Loving (2016) Jeff Nichols is on a roll this year with two releases so far, Midnight Special and now Loving. Will quantity be at the cost of quality? Resoundingly not.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) In depicting the disenfranchised and financially broken, Mackenzie is more successful than either Andrea Arnold or Jodie Foster, who both dealt with similar themes in their Cannes offerings.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 18, 2016
3/5 82% Julieta (2016) Almodovar has toned down the melodrama and ditched the nonsense to create a mature and restrained movie.‐ HeyUGuys

4/5 75% The BFG (2016) A sweet, charming and entertaining story that will be a treat for diehard Dahl fans and will probably gain his work a new generation of readers.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 14, 2016
4/5 91% Sieranevada (2016) Following The Death of Mr Lazarescu, Puiu's latest film benefits from a fine ensemble cast and an evocative depiction of a family, and a country, dealing with the sudden wake of tragedy.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 13, 2016
4/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2017) Ken Loach returns to Cannes with a bleak, brilliant, unflinching and heartfelt take on a family under the dark cloud of austerity.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted May 13, 2016

Read More | Posted May 11, 2016
2/5 73% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) From here on in, we are uncertain just how much of what Vincent sees and perceives is real and how much is a figment of his disturbed and frazzled imagination.‐ HeyUGuys
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2016
