Head Office (1986)

"Sadly Reinhold fails to be funny enough to carry the movie and the only sparky moments are down to support characters Don Novello and Richard Masur." ‐ Radio Times

Silkwood (1983)

"It's a thought-provoking film that asks questions about the safety of the nuclear power industry that are still pertinent." ‐ Radio Times

I Dreamed of Africa (2000)

"Given contemporary African issues, the film doesn't ring true or do anything beyond skate over a familiar and all-too melodramatic surface." ‐ Radio Times

A Smile like Yours (1997)

"The direction is unfocused and the end result is patchy." ‐ Radio Times

My Boyfriend's Back (1993)

"As naff and dreadful as the title suggests." ‐ Radio Times

Electric Dreams (1984)

"Shot by director Steve Barron in the style of a pop promo, Electric Dreams starts brightly but ultimately disintegrates." ‐ Radio Times

Shakespeare in Love (1998)

"Taking the writing process behind Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as its inspiration, John Madden's follow-up to Mrs Brown combines contemporary humour with a convincing 16th-century setting." ‐ Radio Times

About a Boy (2002)

"Genuinely funny and moving, this is both an endearing examination of masculinity and a challenge to male isolationism." ‐ Radio Times

American Beauty (1999)

"British theatre director Sam Mendes made an astonishing film debut with this sublime black comedy about midlife crises." ‐ Radio Times

To Rome with Love (2012)

"Baldwin, Cruz and Davis shine in a farce that overstretches itself into bellylaugh hits, but also some satirical misses." ‐ Empire Magazine

De rouille et d'os (Rust and Bone) (2012)

"It is terribly intense, and French. There is no other way to describe it." ‐ Movieline

Hope Springs (2012)

"The movie is an unsatisfying combination of touching and excruciating, and a large part of the problem stems from Frankel's attempt to hammer such serious and sensitive subject matter into a half-hearted comedy." ‐ Movieline

Crazy Heart (2009)

"It's not possible to flaw Bridges here. Akin to Falstaff, the detail of his characterisation - from stagger to cough to swagger to song - is fascinating. But he needs more thorough contextualisation to fly." ‐ Little White Lies

The Soloist (2009)

"Wright's major mistake is the flashback to Nathaniel's background. Mundane, TV movie simplistic and, ironically, very middle-class patronising, it causes the film's trajectory to go limp." ‐ Little White Lies

500 Days of Summer (2009)

"(500) Days of Summer is a great film - a step in genre and gender development that will be referenced for years to come. And aside from all that, it's really good fun." ‐ Little White Lies

Land of the Lost (2009)

"Neither conventional action-adventure or enough of an out-there pastiche, this really is the land of the lost." ‐ Little White Lies

Sunshine Cleaning (2009)

"Far from being a tragic grind, Sunshine Cleaning is one long, wonderful irony. It feels like a first film - delicate, fresh and female." ‐ Little White Lies

The Young Victoria (2009)

"Caught between real quality and heritage for export, the film falls between two disparate stools." ‐ Little White Lies

Revolutionary Road (2008)

"It leaves you feeling voyeuristically sullied; scrubbing the blood out of your mental carpet, privy to something simultaneously indulgent and inconsequential." ‐ Little White Lies
