No Score Yet Divines "Crackles with attitude, anger and lust for life. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 22, 2016
100% Risk "Sometimes all a documentary needs to do is to get us in the room with somebody we're curious about. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 19, 2016
61% The Unknown Girl (La fille inconnue) "If the intimate frame and dour, matter-of-fact aesthetic suggest a return to the raw territory of La Promesse or The Son, what is new here is a flirtation with genre that lends an extra dose of resonance to a finely-scripted story. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 18, 2016
No Score Yet Fiore "It all makes for a flatline audience experience. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 17, 2016
59% Personal Shopper "It's Stewart's committed account of an introverted young woman's attempt to find emotional closure ... that keeps this odd hybrid of ghost story, thriller, psychological drama and celebrity-culture satire from breaking up into its component parts. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 16, 2016
No Score Yet Chouf "[A] small but watchable drama set in the drug-ridden outer suburbs of Marseilles. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 15, 2016
No Score Yet Wrong Elements "For those with time to invest, Wrong Elements builds towards a rewarding, poignant and also topical study of a violent, extremist cult's after-effects on those who manage to escape its clutches. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 15, 2016
95% Toni Erdmann "That rarest of things: a nearly three-hour-long German-Austrian arthouse comedy-drama that (almost) never drags. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 14, 2016
86% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) "It's a nice premise, one grounded and lent empathy not only by a series of strong performances but by the script's point-of-view shifts. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 11, 2016
100% Truman "A genuine, likeable, loose-limbed buddy dramedy about impending death, Truman is Catalan director Cesc Gay's first title with true export potential. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 28, 2016
73% Sworn Virgin (Vergine giurata) (2016) "[Alba Rohrwacher turns] in a magnetic performance, but despite this and the director's skill at creating emotional resonance out of small things, it's not quite enough to stop the story from feeling a little undercooked. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 19, 2016
88% My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016) "Despite its frequent on-target satire, My Big Night's ropy plot feels like it was written on the back of a serviette one drunken evening. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 11, 2016
88% Francofonia (2016) "Rich, complex, challenging. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Mar 30, 2016
100% Fire at Sea (Fuocoammare) "The European migrant crisis has found its cinematic Pietà in Fire At Sea, Italian director Gianfranco Rosi's powerful, at times shocking but also intensely human documentary. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 22, 2016
63% A Quiet Passion "Davies takes what is known of the poet's life and turns it into a series of carefully poised dramatic tableaux. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 15, 2016
64% War on Everyone "War On Everyone is essentially a clothes hanger for smart one-liners, verbal and visual, and its success will depend partly on how folks like the look of the clothes hanger. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 12, 2016
75% Mr. Six (Lao Pao Er) (2015) "A knockout central performance by director and occasional actor Feng Xiaogang, as a former Beijing street fighter brought reluctantly back into the urban fray in order to save his son, is the dramatic anchor of this engaging mainland genre-bender. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Dec 21, 2015
91% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) "Janis: Little Girl Blue is a classic rock documentary, told using a conventional but well-sifted mix of present-day and archive interviews with performance and backstage footage. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Nov 16, 2015
83% In the Basement (Im Keller) (2015) "It's in more conventional observation and confessions to camera that the film really delivers its strange, melancholic universe. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Nov 5, 2015
94% Sand Dollars (Dolares de Arena) (2015) "It's a film with a restless motion, a film about people in transit (on motorbikes, on foot, in life), in which the question of whether to stay or whether to go, and if so where, takes on a special, existential resonance. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Nov 3, 2015
95% The Wonders (2015) "A rich, strange mix of coming-of-age film and troubled modern pastoral, The Wonders proves that Alice Rohrwacher's spikily original feature debut, Corpo Celeste, was no flash in the pan. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 26, 2015
61% Yakuza Apocalypse (2015) "A martial arts enforcer in a giant green frog suit and a mafia knitting circle are just two of the more kooky pleasures of this increasingly unhinged romp, which mixes surreal humour with loud, bone-crushing fight sequences. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Oct 7, 2015
80% Incompresa (Misunderstood) (2015) "One of the pleasures of Misunderstood is the acid-tinted picture it paints of its two parental antagonists. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 22, 2015
16% Regression (2016) "In trying to combine the perceptiveness of a drama about mass hysteria and poor police work with the jump-in-your-seat frisson of a thriller, Regression is killed in the crossfire. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 19, 2015
85% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Rarely has auteur horror been done so atmospherically and with such deft control of tension. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 16, 2015
88% One Floor Below "For those prepared to invest the time, One Floor Below quietly builds into a devastating portrait of a weak man and the weak society he represents, both of which have lost their moral compasses. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 16, 2015
60% Journey To The Shore (Kishibe No Tabi) "A supernatural romantic road movie takes an initially intriguing but ultimately dead-end route. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 15, 2015
84% Victoria (2015) "It's just a shame that the story itself, once you clear away the one-take smokescreen, also feels like it was made up in a single session after a night spent clubbing. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 14, 2015
73% Youth (2015) "The wry, flamboyant cinematic opera of Paolo Sorrentino reaches new heights of showy, utterly tasteful magnificence in Youth. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 14, 2015
90% A Bigger Splash (2016) "In this overlong remake of cult 1969 drama La Piscine, Italian director Luca Guadagnino, treading water after the classy, well-received I Am Love, drains all the smouldering Gallic passion and sexual jealousy out of the pool. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 9, 2015
92% Anomalisa (2015) "Charlie Kaufman is back -- with a wistful, resonant film, a bracing, wry, honest dose of cinematic melancholy. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 9, 2015
75% Black Mass (2015) "Black Mass turns Aviator shades and a receding hairline into one hell of a scary combo. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 4, 2015
95% In Jackson Heights (2015) "Wiseman goes on doing what he does, with dogged persistence, impervious to changing trends or commercial pressures. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Sep 4, 2015
59% Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016) "Alas, despite a bravely revealing performance by Finnish actor Elmer Back as the cantankerous Russian auteur, the result is a wearying parade of exposition couched in interminable lines of dialogue, split-screen triptychs, [and] artsy CGI trickery. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Aug 25, 2015
91% The Lobster (2016) "Filippou's script takes on a defiant, prickly life of its own, refusing to play as an easy allegory: this is no linear emotional journey dressed in dystopian clothes in the style of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jul 20, 2015
62% Jackie & Ryan (2015) "Despite the film's repeated recourse to Americana cliché, Jackie & Ryan turns out to be a tender, affecting music-driven love story. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 29, 2015
89% A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2015) "A magnificently droll, compassionate, melancholic reflection on the absurd human comedy. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Jun 1, 2015
81% My Name Is Khan (2010) "If this all sounds simplistic, so it is. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 26, 2015
65% A Perfect Day (2016) "A story that for all its motley-band-of-brothers clichés feels as authentic as many more pious takes on the Bosnian conflict. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 25, 2015
80% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) "Brave to the point of madness, Italian auteur Matteo Garrone's most visually and aurally ravishing film to date gives flesh and blood - and plenty of both - to three Neapolitan fables from a collection by 17th-century author Giambattista Basile. " ‐ Screen International
Posted May 14, 2015
85% The Wolfpack (2015) "The reason The Wolfpack is so fascinating, and at times so disturbing, is because it keeps us teetering uneasily between empathy for a remarkable human drama and the suspicion that we're not getting the whole truth, let alone nothing but the truth. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 18, 2015
100% Court (2015) "It's a rich, nuanced film, more social fresco than courtroom drama. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 16, 2015
90% Mia Madre (2016) "A film that is greater than the sum of its parts. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 16, 2015
86% Tangerines (2015) "Tangerines is a tense, moving, nuanced anti-war drama. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 13, 2015
92% Children of Men (2006) "If its backdrop and story never quite coalesce into a satisfying whole, then the film is saved by its sheer imaginative verve and by the terrific chase and battle sequences. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Apr 1, 2015
93% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "As you watch, it dawns on you that, absurdly, this has probably never been attempted before in a commercial feature - certainly not in this frank, unapologetic way. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 15, 2015
84% Cinderella (2015) "Provides a little geopolitical context for the story's fantasy kingdom, without forfeiting the magic - both supernatural and romantic - that has made Cinderella such an enduringly necessary tale for generation after generation. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 13, 2015
59% Life (2015) "By the end a certain frustration has set in, with not quite enough payback to justify the script's slow-burn dramatic arc. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 9, 2015
98% Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015) "Reveals Cobain as a restless creative soul whose often disturbing drawings and raw confessional writings were as much a part of his artistic self as the songs he wrote and performed with Nirvana. " ‐ Screen International
Posted Feb 6, 2015
96% Girlhood (2015) "Celine Sciamma's third film has all the quiet determination and punchy life force of its magnetic 16-year-old heroine. " ‐ Screen International
