Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Paradise: A Trilogy of Hope (2013) Surprisingly humane and even warm, despite these not being adjectives one readily associates with Seidl's work.‐ Sight and Sound

100% Kochegar (A Stoker) (2013) The experience becomes unnervingly intoxicating.‐ Sight and Sound

No Score Yet The Dark House (Dom zly) (2009) It's well worth catching: on the evidence so far, Smarzowski is becoming one of the most astute chroniclers of his country's seedier aspects.‐ Sight and Sound

No Score Yet Allonsanfan (1973) This wittily rumbustious, almost operatic film offers a stirring reminder of a time when European filmmakers regularly engaged with serious political ideas, without compromising their cinematic creativity. ‐ Sight and Sound

No Score Yet Cea mai fericita fata din lume (The Happiest Girl in the World) (2009) The film refuses to offer pat solutions, presumably in an effort to stimulate more constructive discussions among its audience.‐ Sight and Sound

82% That Summer (2018) Its value lies less in its resurrection of footage long thought vanished than in the way that it has been co-opted, with remarkably little overt editorial interference, into an essay on the impermanence, persistence and importance of memory.‐ Sight and Sound

95% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) Though Mungiu is very much his own man, there's more than a whiff of Michael Haneke in his basilisk-eyed view of humanity.‐ Sight and Sound

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

83% 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

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) Films this cine-literate are rarely this unpretentiously enjoyable.‐ Sight and Sound

69% The Man From London (A Londoni Férfi) (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

93% Lourdes (2010) Spiritually flawed and often cynical though Hausner's pilgrims undoubtedly are, they're all too recognisably human.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | 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
