100% Miss Sharon Jones! (2016) "In the empowering tradition of Shut Up & Sing, Running From Crazy and Force of Nature, veteran documentarian Barbara Kopple serves up another portrait of female strength and resilience with Miss Sharon Jones! " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 21, 2016
95% Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng) (2016) "Yeon Sang-ho has instantly transformed himself into Korea's go-to-guy for zombie movies. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 18, 2016
3/5 81% Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016) "Like the mansion where most of the action unfolds, writer/director Anders Thomas Jensen's fourth feature brims with mutant creatures, bestial desires and warped family feelings. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 17, 2016
71% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2016) "Evoking some unholy cross between the satanic classic Rosemary's Baby and Lucile Hadzihalilovic's uncannily eerie Innocence, with an inky dash of Lost Highway, [Osgood Perkins' film] represents a remarkable debut. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 12, 2016
3/5 65% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "Full of striking images, especially of Catholic rituals and darkened, palatial rooms backlit with despair. But the core concept is kind of stupid. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jul 7, 2016
4/5 100% Notes on Blindness "[A] richly evocative and thought-provoking film ... " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jul 1, 2016
70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "Traitor suffers somewhat in comparison with Night Manager: Feature length doesn't always suit the longform, dense storytelling of Le Carre's work. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 30, 2016
62% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "This breezy blast of bawdy jokes and Bollinger product placement should lift spirits in a post-Brexit Britain and earn a considerable pile of devalued sterling along the way. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 29, 2016
95% The Little Prince (2016) "An ambitious gamble that looks like a sure bet commercially but which, artistically, shortchanges its source material. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 27, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet The Swedish Theory of Love "It doesn't really add up to much of an argument, jollied along as it is by stylised editing and jaunty ironic music. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 23, 2016
4/5 79% Les Cowboys (2016) "The Searchers, another story of an "abducted" child, is clearly meant to be a touchstone, but Bidegain cannily exploits and then subverts that connection, taking the story to unexpected places with twist after twist. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 23, 2016
32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "The main thing consumers will be looking for from Resurgence is bang-for-buck entertainment, and that it delivers reasonably successfully. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 21, 2016
30% Septembers Of Shiraz (2016) "Heavy with earnest good intentions but too underpowered and oddly packaged to deliver the emotional gut punch its subject demands, Septembers of Shiraz is a disappointing misfire. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 20, 2016
90% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) "A compelling gateway documentary that should absorb both fans and novices alike. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 20, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) "It's a proper animation buff's piece of work, and admittedly a little slow to get its yarn ripping, but mesmerising and moving in the later stretches. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 17, 2016
3/5 79% Unlocking the Cage (2016) "An exemplary piece of documentary storytelling. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 16, 2016
0% No Stranger Than Love (2016) "Disappointingly bland and dramatically wan, and laced with some painfully pretentious dialogue. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 15, 2016
3/5 92% When Marnie Was There (2015) "The painterly, old-school aesthetic brings an aptly nostalgic feel to this examination of how the past can haunt the present and the rapturous intensity of young friendship. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
4/5 98% Embrace Of The Serpent (El Abrazo De La Serpiente) (2016) "David Gallego's opalescent monochrome cinematography is simply breathtaking and only enhances an utterly magnetic experience. " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
2/5 53% Noma: My Perfect Storm (2015) "Ultimately this feels a bit too much like one long advertisement for the restaurant and misses an opportunity to develop a more probing thesis ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 9, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Breaking the Bank "Diverting enough to pass muster, thanks to a seasoned cast. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 2, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet Blood Orange (2016) "It's all rather forgettable, but at least it makes you appreciate just how great Pop is in those insurance adverts by comparison. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 2, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet The Price of Desire "Sometimes borderline risible, but even so, one can't but fail to be impressed it got made at all, given the subject is really mostly of interest to design geeks and those fascinated by intellectual property law. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 26, 2016
4/5 86% Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants (Minuscule - La vallée des fourmis perdues) (2015) "Invoking storytelling and cinematic traditions that are more than a century old, yet deploying the most sophisticated technology to create its hyper-realist textures, this wonderful French cartoon is entirely dialogue free. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 26, 2016

Posted May 26, 2016
No Score Yet Who Took Johnny "Timely, shocking and relentlessly compelling. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 23, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet Thomas & Friends: The Great Race "While the inclusive, just-be-yourself moral message is didactically sound, this CGI phase of the animated train franchise sorely lacks the charm of the original low-tech shows. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 100% Chicken "Stephenson elicits lively, empathic performances from his small cast. Chambers is a particular standout, as a character just that tiny bit irritating enough to skirt feeling like the standard-issue movie martyr. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 65% Journey To The Shore (Kishibe No Tabi) "Overall the tone is one of quotidian melancholy, emphasising how people cope with grief by getting on with working, cooking and taking long walks, as if Yasujiro Ozu had made an episode of that TV show The Ghost Whisperer. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 19, 2016
91% Toni Erdmann "A slow-burning thing of beauty, ultimately as moving as it is implausibly funny. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 17, 2016
No Score Yet The Dancer (La danseuse) "An airy, prettily accoutered but essentially vapid feature debut for writer-director Stephanie De Giusto. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 13, 2016
3/5 94% The Seventh Fire (2016) "This documentary, by the first-time director Jack Pettibone Riccobono, is a deep drink of bleak. But there are incidental moments of beauty or startling surreality to marvel at ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 12, 2016
94% Presenting Princess Shaw (2016) "Marking a refreshing break from the usually depressing rise-and-fall trajectories of so many music-themed documentaries, Israeli director Ido Haar's Thru You Princess is a pure positivity. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 10, 2016
43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) "The animation punches well above its weight with properly Looney Tunes-standard sight gags, polished, highly expressive character design, and rendering so intensely computed nearly every barbule and rachis on each individual feather is visible. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 8, 2016
4/5 100% Truman "Camara and Darin contribute outstanding work here, a beautifully meshed pair of performances that reveals nearly everything you need to know about the characters and their inner lives through exchanged looks, shrugs and the odd arched eyebrow. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 5, 2016
23% Being Charlie (2016) "Honesty and good intentions don't compensate for the mediocrity of the work. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 3, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Hard Tide "Naturalistic performances and a sense of place are the film's strongest suit, along with a brisk approach to storytelling that propels things along to a predictable but not unsatisfying conclusion. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet The Grump (Mielensäpahoittaja) "Litja and Perankoski are especially funny in the early stages as their mutual frustration with one another comes to a slow boil. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Apr 21, 2016
51% Bastille Day "It ends up playing like a shoddy blend of V for Vendetta and Mr. Robot but without the budget bandwidth or style of either. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 19, 2016
67% Julieta "Some might even feel the whole exercise resembles a hodge-podge of tricks, tropes and name drops recycled from Almodovar's back catalogue, lacking in either freshness or passion. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 8, 2016
83% Hockney (2016) "The life and work of artist David Hockney is lovingly examined in Hockney, an officially sanctioned but pleasingly gush-free cinematic monograph. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 5, 2016
16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "Great costumes can't quite compensate for a lackluster concept. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 4, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet A Warrior's Tail (Savva. Serdtse voina) "[A] NutriBullet puree of myths, fairytales and cultural appropriation ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Apr 1, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Motley's Law "There's something truly superheroic about Motley's level-headed commitment to the law, even when it's clear it's being bent out of all proportion everywhere she looks. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 31, 2016
3/5 30% Mojave (2016) "Isaac is charming and bonhomous as ever, Hedlund is suitably brooding yet dim looking, and Mark Wahlberg is a hoot as a chippy producer perpetually playing host to bored prostitutes. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 24, 2016
3/5 77% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) "There's a shameful pleasure to be had in ogling the plush lifestyle, perfectly conveyed through the set decoration, and then seeing it all get messed up and covered in blood by the end. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 92% Next to Her "Shlush's screenplay, based on her own experiences, is admirable for its unflinching honesty, but there are odd flashes of humour and warmth to lighten up the bleak. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 10, 2016
5/5 92% Anomalisa (2015) "Exquisitely sad, strange, and achingly humane ... " ‐ Radio Times
Posted Mar 10, 2016
71% Kosmos (2010) "Overwrought and overlong, but still chockfull of arresting imagery. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 29, 2016
37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "Baron Cohen and Strong are both robustly physical performers, and their finest moments are when they're grappling with each other, producing a great tangle of limbs and teeth. But the script... is not especially generous to the other members of the cast. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
