2/5 59% Us and Them (2018) All in all, the effect is like Guy Ritchie has remade Michael Haneke's Funny Games after huffing old copies of the Socialist Worker.‐ Guardian

2/5 33% Blue Iguana (2018) It is a story seemingly meant to be funny but only fitfully successful in this mission, and way too pleased with its own brand of deadpan wisecracking.‐ Guardian

3/5 80% Jealous (Jalouse) (2017) Viard, a gifted, protean actor who was terrific in the cop-drama Polisse and has done excellent work in dozens of French films, has incisive comic timing and also shows us a likable fragility beneath her character's bitterness.‐ Guardian

53% The Notebook (2004) A honey-dipped love story with a surprisingly tart aftertaste, The Notebook is a better-than-you'd-expect adaptation of Nicholas Sparks's bestselling novel of the same name.‐ Times (UK)

4/5 82% Anchor and Hope (2017) It's a thoughtful, honest and touching work, especially for women who love women, and also love canals.‐ Guardian

No Score Yet The Factory (Zavod) (2018) Altogether, the package harks back to classic film noir, right down to the budget-maximizing use of just a handful of locations and symbolic shafts of light.‐ Hollywood Reporter

40% Vision (2018) The soporific pace and twee quasi-environmentalist, semi-mystical guff about life cycles and dreams foretold will annoy some viewers.‐ Hollywood Reporter

80% Core of the World (2018) A drama suffused with tenderness in every sense of the word...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
100% Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) (2018) The assembled dames are so smart, witty and strong-willed, it's a wrench to have to part company from them at the end of the film.‐ Hollywood Reporter

4/5 No Score Yet Nureyev (2018) Like any great biography, it casts a light through its prismatic subject, whose unique story refracts out colourful strands touching on art, politics, history, identity and so much more.‐ Guardian

43% Tell It to the Bees (2018) It's hard to dislike this pleasant, earnest work.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2018

Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
4/5 100% Wajib (2017) You might argue that the script is perhaps too tidy and neat, but the rich sense of place and multidimensional characters are too seductive to resist.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
No Score Yet The Lie (2018) Honestly quite good, but telling cruel truths.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
100% Skin (2018) The performances across the board are outstanding, with Bell first among equals...‐ Hollywood Reporter

90% Wild Rose (2018) Entirely delightful, fresh as a Scottish summer evening.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2018
60% Out of Blue (2018) Out of Blue is one of those films you're not sure if you really enjoyed viewing, but you're immensely glad that it exists, cheered to know the film industry still has room for maverick, boundary-smudging work like this.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
100% Rosie (2018) A quietly, gradually heartbreaking portrait of regular people coping with a desperate situation...‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
67% Teen Spirit (2018) This making-of-a-star drama is old-fashioned and corny, and not in a good way.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2018
3/5 71% Final Score (2018) Final Score puts a cheeky British spin on the set-up, and it's hard not to smile when an American character gets thumped for calling the sport soccer instead of football.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet One Day in the Haram (2017) Even hardened atheists might find themselves impressed by the sheer scale of operation here and the passion of the faithful, filmed with respect for their diversity and infinite variety.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet In Praise of Nothing (2017) It all comes down to the viewer's tolerance for pretension and avant-garde risk taking.‐ Guardian

No Score Yet Aquarela (2018) Aquarela takes a deep dive into watery realms around the world, offering up an experience that can truly be described as immersive.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet Winter Ridge (2018) The final who-and-why-reveal is so loopy and absurd, it almost makes the film worth watching - but only if you have a taste for generic crime drama.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet A Stork's Journey (2017) Ultimately, the author's message is an uplifting one, advocating interspecies friendship and respect.‐ Guardian

Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2018
4/5 No Score Yet Elvis: '68 Comeback Special (2018) It is a reminder of what a skilled musician he was, especially during the bits where he jams on stools with his old backing band buddies, including the incomparable lead guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
4/5 97% Leaning Into the Wind (2018) A friend who watched this with me said that it's the kind of film she'd like to see again when she's dying. That pretty much nails its meditative, melancholy tone...‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
3/5 84% Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero (2018) Hats off to the chutzpah of the filmmakers behind this thoughtful if somewhat plodding effort, which will appeal largely to young (or young-at-heart) dog lovers cum budding war historians - not exactly a massive demographic.‐ Guardian

2/5 63% I Can Only Imagine (2018) [A] slickly assembled tale of redemption and reconciliation.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018

Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
3/5 100% The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales (Le grand méchant renard et autres contes) (2018) The fusion of the performers' droll delivery, the spare yet expressive character designs and well-observed movement creates a real warmth and wit.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet The Giant Pear (Den utrolige historie om den kæmpestore pære) (2017) As Euro cartoons go this is a pretty decent effort.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
88% What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015) What Miss Simone does have going for it is its unique access to extremely rare material, some of it never seen publicly before. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
2/5 10% Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) The whole film is as graceless, lurid and unnecessary as a Stallone painting - but without the winning naivety.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) A sequel that is - predictably - made with more money, wit and craft and yet remains faintly disappointing.‐ Hollywood Reporter
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
4/5 83% Path of Blood (2018) Operates as a potent reminder of the randomness, and casual cruelty of modern terrorism, the way it leeches out the humanity of victims and perpetrators on both sides.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
2/5 60% Ploey: You Never Fly Alone (2018) A slapdash air of will-this-do? carelessness permeates the film.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
4/5 93% Calibre (2018) Feels simultaneously familiar and fresh, just like a good, solid bout of genre-tweaking should do.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
3/5 70% Animal World (2018) What he fails to explain is who director Han Yan and the producers think they were making this movie for, because it's extremely nerdy stuff, however many killer clown fantasy sequences are dropped in.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet Together (2018) It's hard to get a steer on how to read the film's intentions, especially when it zigzags between ruthless, dryly rendered satire and absurdly unconvincing courtroom scenes backed by soppy music.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2018
2/5 No Score Yet Concealed (2017) A mud pie of contemporary thriller tropes that don't hold together for long.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
