Sully (2016)

"[Eastwood has] found a true story which demonstrates his beliefs, and tells it faithfully. Aged 86, he's made one of his most symptomatic films." ‐The Arts Desk

American Pastoral (2016)

"Ewan McGregor has been judged unworthy of adapting Philip Roth in the US. But his directorial debut is finely crafted, and powered by visceral emotion embodied in one of his best performances." ‐The Arts Desk

I, Daniel Blake (2016)

"Comedian Dave Johns is perfect for the dry, canny wit and foul-mouthed invective Loach's usual writer Paul Laverty gives Daniel." ‐The Arts Desk

Souvenir (2016)

"It's a breezy romcom, full of gauzy romance, wish-fulfilment, a great faux-Eurovision soundtrack by Pink Martini, and a May-December romance that reverses genders to little comment." ‐The Arts Desk

Paterson (2016)

"This is a sublime film about the democratic consolation of art, and of one another." ‐The Arts Desk

Under The Shadow (2016)

"Its mixture of detailed realism and supernatural dread shows all the ways a society can drag a woman to hell." ‐The Arts Desk

Blair Witch (2016)

"If unzipping a tent to brave whatever's making that horrible noise just outside isn't scary, then Blair Witch has fundamentally failed." ‐The Arts Desk

Lights Out (2016)

" Starting full of dark promise, Lights Out becomes a mechanical, family action film made with kid gloves. It left me begging to be scared." ‐The Arts Desk

David Brent: Life on the Road (2017)

"David Brent: Life On the Road is a brave character study of a depressed, delusional middle-aged man, thinly disguised as an outrageous comedy." ‐The Arts Desk

The Commune (Kollektivet) (2015)

"Anyone who's shared houses, or lived looser than they do now, will recognise the strong bonds and stimuli The Commune recalls and yearns for." ‐The Arts Desk

Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016)

"Men and Chicken, though funny, isn't really nasty. It celebrates its misbegotten brood." ‐The Arts Desk

Cemetery of Splendor (2016)

"Like most Weerasethakul films, it's both deeply rooted, and transcendent." ‐The Arts Desk

Green Room (2016)

"Where Blue Ruin announced Saulnier, Green Room is his career breakthrough. " ‐The Arts Desk

Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)

"Linklater's non-judgemental observations of thoughtfully unpredictable characters do, though, make it linger in the mind." ‐The Arts Desk

Boulevard (2015)

"Robin Williams' final released film is built around one of his finest performances." ‐The Arts Desk

Victoria (2015)

"You could know nothing about its background to still be thoroughly gripped by Schipper's film." ‐The Arts Desk

High-Rise (2016)

"High-Rise is a highly sexy and violent look through a distorting lens at both that familiar past, and the way we live now." ‐The Arts Desk

The Ones Below (2016)

Exposed (2016)

Inherent Vice (2015)

Suite Française (2015)

"Dibb's tribute to the author is honourably meant. But his crude distortions do her novel a grave disservice." ‐The Arts Desk

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

"Avengers: Age of Ultron may drag and creak during its 2 1/2 hours. But it's still often thrilling, briefly moving cinema." ‐The Arts Desk

Best Of Enemies (2015)

"As this sharp, exciting film contends, many unpredictable genies smashed free of their bottles in 1968." ‐The Arts Desk

Ex Machina (2015)

"Ex Machina's subtlest sleight of hand is that our eventual horror at her treatment only makes sense if she has passed the Turing Test. If Ava didn't look and emote like Vikander, her plight would seem as tragic as a toaster's." ‐The Arts Desk

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"Some with no memory of being swept away almost forty years ago will follow strong new heroes and villains. For those old enough now and young enough then to have childhoods consumed by this stuff, it's a satisfying new turn in a near life-long tale." ‐The Arts Desk
Posted Dec 17, 2015

Inception (2010)

"Inception is as lucid and heartfelt as summer blockbusters get these days." ‐The Arts Desk

The Wolverine (2013)

"Basically, it becomes another Wolverine yarn, and the energy and talent expended to find something worthwhile in that falls exhausted to the floor. It's enjoyable, even memorable. But comic-book lead can't be turned into gold." ‐The Arts Desk

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

"Everyone has done an excellent job on director Marc Webb's exciting, well-crafted sequel to his first Spider-Man film. But it's impossible to reboot audiences' brains, and forget the same job was done even better, only the other day." ‐The Arts Desk

American Sniper (2015)

"This is a film of Zen-balanced emotional weight, and a combat movie which would make the genre's master Sam Fuller proud." ‐The Arts Desk

Willow Creek (2014)

"Willow Creek's mixture of quizzical documentary and gripping horror film is the effective result." ‐The Arts Desk

In Fear (2014)

The Guest (2014)

"Dan Stevens puts Downton behind him to become a CIA-built killing machine laying low in a New Mexico small town, in Adam Wingard's bonkers new thriller." ‐The Arts Desk

Loose Cannons (Mine Vaganti) (2010)

"Ozpetek takes these men and women as they are, revealing deep emotions in broad strokes. Everyone here is a disappointed misfit, not just the loose cannons in the clan." ‐Little White Lies

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009)

"A cheerily irreverent memorial to Ledger. Ledger, meanwhile, immerses himself enthusiastically into the low-budget spirit of Gilliam's film." Uncut Magazine [UK]

Is Anybody There? (2009)

"Is Anybody There? lets the thought that helpless infirmity is where we're all headed sink in gently. Unassumingly wise, its jagged edges stick with you." ‐Little White Lies
