2/5 75% My Best Friend (2007) Quote not available.‐ Time Out

81% Broken Embraces (2009) The sense is of an ageing director taking stock: exploring his cinematic roots, imagining his future and working through it all to emerge counting his blessings at the end.‐ Time Out

74% Princesas (Princesses) (2005) Compelling, frequently funny and, commendably, resists wrapping things up sentimentally. Nice Manu Chao soundtrack, too.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2007
92% Caramel (2008) A lovely little comedy-drama.‐ Time Out

78% Coeurs (2007) Not one he'll be remembered for, but a cut above.‐ Little White Lies

96% Deep Water (2006) Charting the thin line between courage and foolhardiness, it's a poignant portrayal of the excruciating emotional odyssey of all involved.‐ Time Out

2/5 30% Goya's Ghosts (2007) With its riffs on art, its split-in-half story and Goya-esque production design, you can see it reaching for grand ideas about actions and their reverberations, but it merely rumbles on, illuminating neither the artist nor his tumultuous times.‐ Time Out

73% The Illusionist (2006) With exquisite performances (Giamatti's, in particular), it leaves you thrillingly hovering, happily uncommitted to any one interpretation.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2007
73% In the Pit (2007) You long for more context on both workers and project, though a breathtaking five-minute-plus helicopter shot along the snaking concrete-and-iron colossus at the close helps distract from any moans.‐ Time Out

87% The Heart of the Game (2005) The intrusive narration, from hip hopper Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, offers little sense of real lives unfolding, more of a way being paved to an, admittedly tense, all-American triumph-over-adversity climax.‐ Time Out

88% Drømmen (We Shall Overcome) (2006) It's enjoyably rousing, and cinematographer Lars Vestergard works miracles turning the Danish countryside into bright slices of Americana.‐ Time Out

3/6 80% Born and Bred (2006) An existential nightmare of grief, guilt and penance, with Guillermo Nieto's sublime photography of the frozen, otherworldly landscape a correlative to Santiago's suspended state.‐ Time Out

95% March of the Penguins (2005) Morgan Freeman's slick voice-over compounds a slightly plodding structure, but the dedication of the penguins -- and the cameramen -- assure your wonderment.‐ Time Out

33% Poseidon (2006) Petersen's expert direction ensures it remains gripping, keeping the tension ratcheted right up and commendably steering it all home within 100 minutes.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2006
83% Serenity (2005) The settings and tone are hyper-real, yet the human behaviour is grounded and credible, the moral conflicts complex and involving. Shiny, intelligent fun.‐ Time Out

46% The Cell (2000) Lopez is hard to take as the empathetic psychologist who uses a synaptic transfer machine to penetrate the comatose killer's tortured psyche in hopes of finding his latest victim.‐ Time Out

94% Los Olvidados (1952) It's a masterpiece that tangles individual and social ills into a knot, which, as we're warned in an opening voiceover, it offers no easy way to untie, rousing a sickening sense of injustice.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2006
70% Frequency (2000) This ambitious but frustrating timeshift thriller never quite manages to jam together two distinct stories.‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
30% Nowhere to Run (1993) When Van Damme is doing what he does best -- narcissistically displaying his body and thumping the bad guys -- the film works reasonably well.‐ Time Out
