T-Meter Title | Year
100% Sun Ra: A Joyful Noise (1980) Open ears will wallow in his amniotic funk - even those shocking solos - and rock fans will cower at his invention. - Time Out EDIT

96% The Times of Harvey Milk (1984) Charismatic and outspoken, Milk was headed for the job of mayor, and deserves a place in the pantheon of specifically American radicalism. - Time Out EDIT

73% Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1973) While the likes of 'Oh You Pretty Things' and 'All the Young Dudes' still raise a smile, the presiding image is of those flesh-crawling glam-rock costumes and stage antics. Go for the music, or not at all. - Time Out EDIT

74% Silkwood (1983) Silkwood's "ordinariness" protects her from being labelled a wild-eyed Trot, but that should not be allowed to obscure her courage or the whitewash ladled onto her story after her death. - Time Out EDIT

17% Where the Buffalo Roam (1980) Laughs aplenty for people who use drugs as a pose, but most will be left wondering if half a pint of Bass doesn't qualify as a revolutionary action. - Time Out EDIT

94% Before Stonewall (2019) Its politics are sensible, the life stories touching, warm and funny, and the archive stuff camper than Butlin's empire. - Time Out EDIT
