Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
88% In Darkness (2012) Though the film's factual basis dictates an upbeat ending, much of the journey is appropriately and memorably grim. ‐ Sight and Sound

80% Bank Holiday (1938) Although in essence it's a lightweight romantic melodrama with comic elements, it also provides a fascinating glimpse of the leisure activities of various British social classes. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Feb 25, 2013
99% The Interrupters (2011) The Interrupters is a heavyweight film about a heavyweight subject of clear interest well beyond the United States. ‐ Sight and Sound

90% Attack the Block (2011) Cornish draws superb performances out of his inexperienced central quintet, especially John Boyega (taciturn Moses) and Alex Esmail (livewire Pest). ‐ Sight and Sound

70% A Londoni Férfi (The Man From London) (2007) The mere fact of Hungarian auteur Béla Tarr continuing to direct films without making the smallest concession to popular fashion is a cause for celebration. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Aug 29, 2010
93% Lourdes (2010) Spiritually flawed and often cynical though Hausner's pilgrims undoubtedly are, they're all too recognisably human. ‐ Sight and Sound
Posted Jul 6, 2010
93% The Death of Mr. Lazarescu (2006) Puiu's seemingly artless, documentary-style mise en scène, with the characters followed by a shoulder-mounted camera, conceals countless subtleties, foreshadowings and running themes. ‐ Sight and Sound
