Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
93% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2017) The whole set of rituals is terribly French and meant to act as a kaleidoscope of viewpoints on the topos of romantic fiction.‐ Sight and Sound

79% Nowhere Boy (2010) The acting all round is pretty good, but the story itself is given to a sense of drift, as if the film itself doesn't know any better than Lennon what it wants.‐ Sight and Sound

93% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) A gently loving fable with a straightforward political message that home can be wherever you find it.‐ Sight and Sound

80% Austerlitz (2016) What one collects by the end is a rounded portrait of humanity, and, somehow, one of hope, despite the ghastliness of human crimes and the need to revisit them.‐ Sight and Sound

100% One More Time With Feeling (2016) An extremely honest and bitterly poignant portrait of grief.‐ Sight and Sound

64% Voyage of Time: Life's Journey (2016) So pompous that it's wide open to satire.‐ Sight and Sound

97% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) A beautifully crafted work of storytelling that resonates long after you see it.‐ Sight and Sound

62% Slack Bay (Ma loute) (2017) It's full of surreal invention, and gorgeously shot, but you get the sense that Dumont, by letting his top-rank French cast go way OTT, traps himself in a vein of French comedy that's an acquired taste at best.‐ Sight and Sound

96% Paterson (2016) Jim Jarmusch makes vibrant films/ Out of quiet distinctions/ A taste for perfect, ordinary things.‐ Sight and Sound

79% Personal Shopper (2017) Assayas's approach to the ghost story manifestations is pleasingly straightforward, and the screenplay's handling of the SMS discussion between Maureen and a mystery figure is a masterpiece of tension-building.‐ Sight and Sound

98% Aferim! (2016) So intricately textured, well observed and meticulously researched are the incidents these two encounter... that the film seems to combine the best pleasures of historical romp, road movie and western. ‐ Sight and Sound

79% Where to Invade Next (2016) Moore has a winning way with fake incredulity and surging music.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2015
94% Güeros (2015) As self-aware black-and-white, nouvelle-vague-tribute fever dreams go, Güeros is surprisingly beautiful, inventive and convincing.‐ Sight and Sound

88% Gone Girl (2014) I had a great time watching it.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2014
95% Her (2013) The combination of Jonze's dialogue, the intensity of the performances and the way the film's style wraps you up in Theodore and Samantha's inner-ear relationship makes this feel like a uniquely apt diagnosis of contemporary ills.‐ Sight and Sound

83% Miss Violence (2013) Could not have been better acted and constructed to achieve its grim intensity. You'll recognise the tone as resembling that of the group of Greek talents that brought us Dogtooth, but it is a more conventional work that harks back as much to Attic tragedy‐ Sight and Sound

86% Night Moves (2014) Night Moves gives us the pleasure and satisfaction of an established voice having achieved perhaps her finest work yet.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2013
3/5 65% This Must Be The Place (2012) Beguiling performances abound and the director's taste for extremely beautiful composition is very much to the fore.‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)
