Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
81% T2 Trainspotting (2017) Long-awaited, much-delayed and disappointingly redundant ... ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 19, 2017
No Score Yet Stray Bullets (2017) An enjoyably blood-soaked thriller with unexpectedly lyrical interludes -- made very much in the shadow of classic genre forebears and on what was clearly a constrained budget -- this is a strikingly impressive calling-card. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 6, 2017
83% The Coming War On China (2016) A persuasively partisan example of old-school investigative journalism. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 19, 2016
No Score Yet Miss Kiet's Children (2016) A lovely, upbeat, even life-affirming film. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 1, 2016
88% The White King (2016) Intriguing but ultimately underwhelming. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 9, 2016
71% The Tenth Man (El rey del Once) (2016) A wryly amusing peek into Buenos Aires' bustling Jewish quarter. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 1, 2016
100% Ixcanul (2016) A solid example of low-key, well-observed, humanistically sympathetic ethnography. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 26, 2016
17% La corrispondenza (2016) Quite original, highly improbable and curiously cool. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 26, 2016
88% Garnet's Gold (2016) Sometimes all a documentary needs is one strong, charismatic personality to keep things watchable: Garnet's Gold boasts two in the form of the middle-aged eponymous protagonist and his feisty octogenarian mother. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 12, 2016
81% Cosmos (2016) This metaphysical French-Portuguese gabfest boasts the uncompromising intensity that has often been Zulawski's hallmark but leavens the stew with welcome streaks of off-kilter humor. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 15, 2016
70% Len and Company (2016) Primarily a showcase for the spiky charisma of star Rhys Ifans, it's a low-key study of strained family relations that creates and sustains a certain wryly flinty mood up until a disastrous 11th-hour lurch into violent melodrama. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 8, 2016
80% Fidelio, Alice's Journey (2015) Built four-square around Ariane Labed's engaging turn as eponymous sailor Alice, this feature debut from actress-turned-writer-director Lucie Borleteau strikes a delicate balance between the sensual and the matter-of-fact. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 23, 2016
90% The Boy And The Beast (Bakemono No Ko) (2016) A raucously entertaining if slightly overlong romp which borrows liberally from existing sources but has more than enough character and brio to stand foursquare on its own two hairy feet. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 29, 2016
89% We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! (2016) This persuasive paean to sheer bloody-minded persistence flies by over the course of 136 engrossing, often hilarious minutes. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 18, 2016
89% Bridgend (2016) The basic premise stretches credulity from the off. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 9, 2016
A- 87% The Club (El Club) (2016) [The film's story] may skirt credibility towards the latter stages but whose finale concludes matters in a persuasive, wickedly witty and provocative manner. ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Feb 3, 2016
90% Casa Grande (2015) Cavalcanti -- an occasional TV performer whose considerable musical gifts the guitar-strumming Jean shares -- makes for a consistently engaging and intriguing protagonist. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 11, 2015
88% Horse Money (2015) E even within the context of such unevenness, Costa's commitment to chronicling and implicitly dignifying the sufferings of the oppressed and the exploited provides Horse Money with a solid core. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 18, 2015
86% The Iron Ministry (2015) The parallel tracks of railways and cinema profitably converge yet again in J.P.Sniadecki's outstanding, semi-experimental documentary The Iron Ministry, a pungently immersive evocation of traveling on Chinese trains. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 17, 2015
D- 10% Queen of the Desert (2015) A stunning misfire. ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Jul 23, 2015
100% Song From The Forest (2015) Alternating between the urban jungle of Manhattan and the rain-forest of Africa with metronomic aplomb, award-winning German journalist and author Michael Obert effects an belated, auspicious transition to film-making with Song From the Forest. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 15, 2015
56% Set Fire To The Stars (2015) A steady, austere treatment of a notoriously and riotously rambunctious subject, Set Fire to the Stars takes a non-incendiary, safe-hands approach to potentially combustible material. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 8, 2015
89% Meru (2015) Meru is an engaging and cumulatively exhilarating debut from wife-and-husband team Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 5, 2015
64% We Are Monster (2015) This is very much Alexander's show. Despite moments of audition-piece excess, the young actor... almost single-handedly keeps We Are Monster watchable, exuding a malign charisma that dominates the screen and compels our appalled fascination. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 11, 2015
67% Navajazo (2014) Its title may be a Spanish word meaning "knife wound", but Ricardo Silva's pseudo-apocalyptic, sophomorically provocative debut Navajazo is much too surface-skimming to draw blood. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 20, 2015
100% Court (2015) Chaitanya Tamhane emerges as one of the world's most accomplished and promising film-makers under 30 with his quietly steely legal drama Court, a bluntly-titled chronicle of politically-motivated injustice. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3/5 93% Force Majeure (2014) An essentially hollow contrivance, more concerned with pushing hot buttons and sparking discussion than organically developing characters or probing complex issues. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Apr 9, 2015
79% That Guy Dick Miller (2015) At 90-odd minutes, it's more exhausting than illuminating -- there's not much time for anything resembling proper analysis. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 30, 2015
100% Of Horses and Men (2015) Strikingly good-looking if somewhat narratively uneven. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 10, 2015
80% Black Sea (2015) A semi-waterlogged confluence of the submarine and heist sub-genres which seeks to evoke a testosterone-soaked, 1970s feel. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 20, 2015
92% Death Metal Angola (2014) An upbeat chronicle of very hard rock in a very hard place, Death Metal Angola is one of the livelier and more enticingly exotic additions to the ever-burgeoning music-documentary sub-genre. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 24, 2014
75% Once Upon a Time Veronica (2014) Brazil's Marcelo Gomes leaps to the front rank of South American filmmakers. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 22, 2014
100% Gebo et l'ombre (2014) Old-school charm and expert performances elevate a somewhat creaky theatrical adaptation by the tireless centenarian Manoel de Oliveira. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 27, 2014
77% Jimmy's Hall (2015) What we're left with is an odd, only fitfully engaging hybrid of The Quiet Man and Footloose, which neither packs much of a punch nor is particularly nimble on its feet. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 23, 2014
93% Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case (2014) Accessible documentary serves as useful introduction to and informative update on an artist who's seldom out of the headlines for long. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 14, 2014
99% The Missing Picture (2014) A sobering, ultimately numbing peek into the living hell of 1970s Cambodia. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 16, 2014
95% A Hijacking (2013) A high-seas hostage-taking and resulting negotiations are absorbingly dramatized in this low-key Venice standout from Denmark's hottest new writer-director. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 16, 2013
96% Wrinkles (2014) Poignant animated feature about senior citizens is one the year's best Spanish films. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 12, 2013
100% Couleur de peau: Miel (Approved for Adoption) (2013) Animated semi-documentary takes a wry backward glance at an unorthodox childhood with sometimes affecting results. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 21, 2013
82% Story of My Death (2014) A fanciful project that's tantalizing on paper but largely DOA on screen. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 14, 2013
97% The Selfish Giant (2013) Solidly effective addition to Britain's social realism tradition, elevated by excellent performances by the young leads and some unexpectedly poetic touches. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 14, 2013
44% Blind Detective (Man Tam) (2013) Tiresomely frenetic crime-comedy-romance. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 14, 2013
92% Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction (2013) Engaging documentary tribute to the craggy character-actor and his five-decade career is elevated by classy visuals and a nicely relaxed, casual tone. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 9, 2013
92% Our Nixon (2013) Efficient found-footage collage is more evocative than revelatory. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 26, 2013
55% Now, Forager (2012) Likeably unassuming, good-looking US indie may exert offbeat appeal to the foodie crowd. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 20, 2013
86% The Patience Stone (2013) A luminous central performance from Golshifteh Farahani distinguishes an ambitious if somewhat monotonously wordy adaptation of a prize-winning best-seller. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 12, 2013
69% El artista y la modelo (The Artist and the Model) (2013) Nicely elegiac, proudly old-fashioned tale of wartime passions, with veteran French star Jean Rochefort a likely award-magnet. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 2, 2013
37% The Purge (2013) Gimmicky chiller lacks the robustness and distinction needed to support its social-commentary ambitions. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 7, 2013
88% The Golden Dream (La Jaula De Oro) (2015) A lukewarm examination of a hot-potato political issue. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 23, 2013
94% Stories We Tell (2013) Canadian documentary skilfully deploys some ambitious creative gambits to explore the director's own family background. ‐ Hollywood Reporter
