3/5 70% Dark River (2017) The power of Barnard's visionary style shines through regardless but this will go down in the annals of film history as one of her lesser works.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 75% You Have No Idea How Much I Love You (Nawet nie wiesz, jak bardzo cie kocham) (2016) For anyone who has ever had therapy or contemplated it, it's a rare and illuminating peek into the mechanics of the process.‐ Times (UK)

5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) This is a mesmerising, profoundly emotional tale of vulnerable outsiders - and it's beyond gorgeous to look at.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 97% Black Panther (2018) A fresh new Marvel superhero movie unlike any other.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 94% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) [Andrey] Zvyagintsev layers on his themes of the inhumanity of man and the bleak effects of our self-obsessed culture, yet with the lightness of falling snow.‐ Metro (UK)

2/5 25% Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas (Tadeo Jones 2: El secreto del Rey Midas) (2017) A feminist spin to the characterisation is a plus but this is something parents will stick on for the kids while they get on with something more gripping, like folding laundry.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 71% The Mercy (2017) [Colin] Firth is all at sea but this retelling of Donald Crowhurst's round-the-world adventure should still keep you hooked‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 97% Journey's End (2018) Director Saul Dibb (Bullet Boy) brings a tense immediacy to this stagey chamber piece. ‐ Metro (UK)

2/5 51% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) [Denzel] Washington is perfectly good but the script doesn't give him enough to make this worthy of all the attention.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
4/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Despite swoonsome visuals, it's a constricting, prickly and demanding film, the portrait of a very odd love affair shot through a very male lens...Think Fifty Shades Of Grey for the couture crowd.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
4/5 100% The Cinema Travellers (2016) Shot over five years, their observational, gently woven elegy to the last gasp of celluloid feels somewhat overstretched at feature length, yet it contains some of the most magical images you'll see this year.‐ Times (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2018
5/5 97% Coco (2017) Funny and heart-tugging with some knockout tunes, the movie glows with warmth. And how many kids' cartoons would include a running Frida Kahlo gag? One to treasure.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
3/5 58% The Commuter (2018) With fishy-looking types at every turn, it's like a high-speed Murder On The Orient Express with more face punching.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
4/5 88% The Post (2018) Streep, Hanks and Spielberg deliver quality news in this journalistic thriller that's out to be this year's Spotlight.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
4/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) Based on real events, this tale of a talented woman trying to make it in a Hollywood stacked against her gains extra currency in the post-Weinstein climate. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
4/5 82% Brad's Status (2017) [Mike White's] movie tucks some quietly resonant aces up its sleeve - including some fine 'serious acting' from Stiller, arguably his best to date.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
4/5 77% All the Money in the World (2017) Mark Wahlberg is its only under-par member but both Plummers are on the money, while Williams works wonders with her one-note role. Then there's 80-year-old Scott's nimble direction.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 70% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) If you don't already consider 'Clapton is God', as the famous graffiti put it, then you'll be unconverted by this oddly distancing rock doc...Diverting enough, it nonetheless fails to fully delve into its subject.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Strong, excitingly unpredictable stuff, this is a fabulously unforgettable genre cocktail from Martin (In Bruges) McDonagh.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 86% Darkest Hour (2017) Director Joe (Atonement) Wright exhibits his trademark flashes of visual aplomb and captures the peril of Nazi invasion with thrilling immediacy, despite being almost entirely confined to the claustrophobic corridors of power.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
4/5 100% The Prince of Nothingwood (2017) A fascinating testimony to the uplifting power of cinema.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
4/5 71% Ferdinand (2017) And there's so much charm (a bull-in-a-china-shop scene is an instant classic) that this family treat will put a smile on your face, a tear in your eye and an extra bada-boom in your heart.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
4/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) There's a refreshing gender balance among the key characters. Laura Dern's Vice Admiral Holdo may be dressed more for the opera but don't be fooled, kids.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2017
4/5 85% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) Takashi has lost none of his eye-popping style, blood-soaked energy and madcap wit. This is a groaning sashimi board of slice'n'dice carnage that's decidedly not for the faint of stomach.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2017
2/5 46% The Dinner (2017) Brittle, stiff and frustratingly chopped about in a restless bid to break free from its claustrophobic setting, The Dinner is a far from satisfying feast, despite its appetising cast.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 91% Stronger (2017) [Jake] Gyllenhaal may well get an Oscar nomination for this and deserves to - his every expression is captivating.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) Morfydd Clark [is] excellent as Dickens's wife.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 85% Wonder (2017) The chapter shifts between different characters' perspectives give the narrative unexpected universal nuance, making this more than the syrupy medical weepie it might appear.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Director/star James Franco allows us to laugh at Wiseau's atrocious acting, incomprehensible direction and oddball vanity but also encourages us to respect his creative spirit.‐ Metro (UK)

1/5 29% Suburbicon (2017) Clooney leaves his black characters short-changed (we barely get to know them) despite his heavy-handed highlighting of US racial injustice.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
5/5 99% Jane (2017) Sublimely scored by Philip Glass, this inspiring, unsentimental portrait not only glows but is an empowering must-see every mother should take her daughter too - or vice versa.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
4/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Meanwhile, the triple threat of Sarah Silverman, Alan Cumming and Elisabeth Shue all rolled up in one film is a joy almost too great to bear.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2017
3/5 78% Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017) Annette Bening is terrific as the effervescent Grahame but it's [Jamie] Bell who works real magic on a role that would otherwise be an adoring (frequently shirtless) puppy dog.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 92% Good Time (2017) Robert Pattinson finally drives a stake through his image as the moony hunk from Twilight with this convincing, career-shifting performance - his finest to date.‐ Metro (UK)

5/5 96% Mudbound (2017) Dee Rees's Deep South melodrama is an instant classic.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 15, 2017
5/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) For the most part what you get here are raw, non-star performances combined with knockout neon visuals. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2017
4/5 87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) A timely and astute exploration of gender power.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2017
5/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) But the secret weapon here is Grant: as a vain, once-A-list actor reduced to advertising doggie dinners, he hams it up with just the right amount of self-loathing. At his finest, no one can do comedy quite like him and this is an incomparable performance.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 89% Ferrari: Race to Immortality (2017) It certainly captures the 'live fast, die young' glamour of the bygone Formula One scene. After all, no one lived faster.‐ Metro (UK)

4/5 92% Thelma (2017) Norwegian director Joachim Trier refuses to stick either his characters or the forces guiding them into neat boxes.‐ Metro (UK)

3/5 92% Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) [Vince] Vaughn is captivating in his vulnerable, forlorn-eyed, rage-fuelled intensity. More than anything, it's him that compels you to watch through these 132 demolishing minutes.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
4/5 100% I Am Not a Witch (2017) A fascinating witch's brew of absurdism, realism, satire and fairy tale, I Am Not A Witch reveals young Zambian-Welsh director/writer Rungano Nyoni as a blazing talent to watch.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
5/5 97% The Death of Stalin (2018) Witty and scarily pertinent to almost any organisation, The Death Of Stalin is so brilliant it's a privilege to watch it.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2017
3/5 50% On the Road (2016) Occasionally a delightfully intimate filmic device, it soon wears thin and will frustrate Wolf Alice fans since the band mainly waft about in the background.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 69% The Ritual (2017) Director David Bruckner makes the most of the misty, twiggy Scandi location to conjure a memorable sense of unease, while his cut-above cast are believable as early middle-aged blokes whose once close friendship is tested.‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
4/5 84% The Party (2018) A spiky script that skewers the contemporary liberal elite is clearly relished by the splendid cast. ‐ Metro (UK)
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) With a generic title like American Assassin, this sounds like a Chuck Norris straight-to-DVD action flick. It's only a slight upgrade.‐ Metro (UK)
