T-Meter Title | Year
82% Listen Up Philip (2014) Listen Up Philip, in the end, is just like the central character it describes. It petulantly demands to be heard even as it has nothing to say. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

94/100 90% Mandy (2018) In the end, Mandy is either extremely for you or it is extremely not; I feel bad for you if you're in the latter camp. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

1.5/5 57% The Bookshop (2018) It mostly feels like somebody pedaling in place on a stationary bike who thinks they're on a bonafide journey. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

65/100 82% Love, Cecil (2018) The result is a perfectly pleasant film about a mostly-pleasant subject that ends up expressing little of lasting interest about its subject or the implications of his life. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

4.5/5 92% Beast (2018) It is utterly bonkers, knows it is bonkers, and loves that it is bonkers. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

3.5/5 36% Racer and the Jailbird (Le Fidèle) (2018) There are a handful too many moments when the film sags or snags to call it great, but when its firing on all cylinders, it's blazing. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

93% Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin) (2017) Endless Poetry is constantly engaged in the act of invoking without ever evoking anything. In that sense, its name is just wrong; there's no poetry to it at all. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

90% Marjorie Prime (2017) Marjorie Prime is adapted from stage to screen with such a lack of creativity, ingenuity, or re-imagination that I'm almost offended. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

40/100 81% Midnighters (2018) Midnighters is an unclever person's idea of a clever movie, or someone's attempt to prove they're clever only to unclever people. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

50/100 51% Flower (2018) Flower is indeed, smart, clever, and knowing - it's also ultimately vacuous, superficial, and self-absorbed. In that way, there's no distance between it and its protagonist at all. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

70/100 94% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) Thin on character and narrative. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

2/100 78% The China Hustle (2018) The China Hustle is one of the most disingenuous, cynical, and ultimately ugly documentaries I've ever seen. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

92/100 97% 1945 (2017) 1945 is suspenseful, loud, in motion yet claustrophobic, practically a Western. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

73/100 81% Where Is Kyra? (2018) Anchored around terrific performances from Pfeiffer and Kiefer Sutherland, Where is Kyra deserves to be applauded for everything it does right. - Brightest Young Things EDIT

66/100 88% The Workshop (L'atelier) (2018) The Workshop would like us to feel like we watched something meaningful about a lot of different things, when in fact it tabled all the elements of meaning, set some of them rolling, but didn't follow through. - Brightest Young Things EDIT
