5/5 92% Saving Private Ryan (1998) Steven Spielberg's film is not perfect: it plays its strongest card first, the middle section is slightly uneven, and there are sallies into sentimentality. But it is a modern war classic.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 100% Mary Poppins (1964) Van Dyke's energy is prodigious (especially when he leaps around with a gang of sooty chimney-sweeps on the London rooftops) and the songs are classics.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 82% Marnie (1964) Hitchcock was criticised for bring shallow psychology into the film (Hedren's character is afraid of the colour red) but some of their exchanges - the film was based on a novel by Winston Graham - are sharp and droll.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
