4/5 99% Love & Friendship (2016) "Most of this film is a joy. It's Plain Jane compared to some, but its deadpan wit and poker-faced comic naturalism come to seem the ideal to which all Austen cinema should aspire. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 26, 2016
4/5 88% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "For someone humming much the same tune from film to film, Linklater has an amazing versatility. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 12, 2016
5/5 88% Dheepan (2016) "Thoughtful, moving, quietly powerful. For 90 minutes it's like a firecracker waiting to explode. Then comes the explosion. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016
5/5 84% Victoria (2015) "It's a pell-mell plot, wonderfully acted. Its human moments, of vulnerability, gauche tenderness and the first stings of fateful love, are as powerful as its hellish ones. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "Did we need 150 minutes to watch slyly crafted revisionism turn to special-effects kitsch and rampage? " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 23, 2016
4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) "Just relish the zingy jokes and in-jokes; a slow-burn dialogue scene with sloths that's an instant classic; the elastic character animation; and the pacy, racy disrespect for PC of all hues and flavours. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 23, 2016
5/5 95% Marguerite (2016) "It has the dramatic density, social sweep and sardonic bite of great French fiction. Think Balzac, Maupassant. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 17, 2016
5/5 92% Anomalisa (2015) "Kaufman and Johnson's puppets are quaint yet spooky, rudimentary yet lifelike. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 10, 2016
3/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Think of Altman's The Player; mix it with random pages of Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon; shake and serve. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Mar 3, 2016
2/5 38% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "In the world's talent-crowded laughter factory, there isn't room for just another Britcom funnyman - feral yet unfocused - which is all we're offered here. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 25, 2016
5/5 89% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "With this film the cowboy genre moves beyond modern and postmodern. You could call it postmillennial, post-apocalyptic, post-ironic. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 18, 2016
4/5 95% The Survivalist "Suspense abounds, in this story, yet also an uncanny grace. Think of Mad Max, directed by an art house minimalist. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/5 76% Trumbo (2015) "Cranston is superb. The Breaking Bad actor, in best form, is an attack dog: he goes at lines like a mutt at a mutton bone. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Feb 4, 2016
2/5 73% Youth (2015) "In his culminating despair, Keitel says: "We're all just extras." You wouldn't want to be even that here ... " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jan 29, 2016
4/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "As a press-exposé procedural, Spotlight has a verve often worthy of All the President's Men. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016
4/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "A big, clever chortle, full of sardonic insights into a time of woe. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 82% The Revenant (2015) "The locations and cinematography are wow-inducing. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016
4/5 94% Min lilla syster (My Skinny Sister) "I loved My Skinny Sister. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 30, 2015
3/5 99% Timbuktu (2015) "It's skilful, sardonic, honourably humane. Are those qualities, today, enough? " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 30, 2015
4/5 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) "It's a Hollywood movie in the best sense, unsparing with spectacle, a-roar with conviction and cast, if not with superstars, then with voices and faces that become indelible. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 23, 2015
3/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) " I enjoyed the seventh Star Wars film more than any since The Empire Strikes Back and much more than - yes, reader, I was there, for this newspaper, reviewing it - the now 38-year-old saga start-up. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 16, 2015
3/5 65% Krampus (2015) "Krampus is a merry Christmas horror film that takes no prisoners but should hold willing audiences captive. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
5/5 78% Sunset Song (2016) "It could have been calamitous, this bizarro-Brechtian approach to a rural epic couched and conceived in the near-vernacular. Yet it's magical. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
4/5 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Bridge of Spies has some hold-ups and blockages. But in the best scenes the traffic flows fluently over the purling, perilous currents of cold war history. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Nov 26, 2015
5/5 97% Brooklyn (2015) "Brooklyn has an old-fashioned perfection so incandescent, and so winning, that it's almost spooky. It could have come from an alternative, postmodern universe. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Nov 5, 2015
5/5 95% Jafar Panahi's Taxi (2015) "An antic countercultural pageant, in which fact and fiction play musical passenger seats. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Oct 29, 2015
3/5 85% Steve Jobs (2015) "If I feel I now know less about Jobs than I did before, that may be a good thing. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Oct 11, 2015
5/5 90% Mia Madre (2016) "Mia Madre is a triumph of tonal complexity. It's a funny tragedy, a serious comedy, a film about death that has its wake and eats it. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 24, 2015
4/5 73% Everest (2015) "Schmaltz-free but not shock-free, horror-free, wonder-free. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 17, 2015
4/5 96% The Second Mother (Que Horas Ela Volta?) (2015) "Regina Casé is superb in the main role: dolorous, clucking, solicitous, dumbstruck, despairing; a mood for all seasons and every season, for character revelation, a high season. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 4, 2015
3/5 45% No Escape (2015) "Who are the rebels? What's their beef? Whom are they overthrowing? Never mind all that. Just feel the cinegenic gusts of panic, skilled story ploys and give-it-everything main performances. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Sep 3, 2015
4/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) "The film is often hysterical in the best sense. Not just funny-hysterical, its script bubbling with bad-girl one-liners, but hysterical with an edge of funky, missionary outreach and outrage ... " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
5/5 83% Mistress America (2015) "It's funny, witty, joyous, mischievous and casually profound. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 13, 2015
5/5 93% Hard to be a God (2015) "The film is about observation: its powerless, farcical, unquenchable curiosity. And it's about - imagine a drama hewn from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle - how observers become actors or influencers, whether they want to or not. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 6, 2015
4/5 88% Amour Fou (2015) "The build-up scenes of talk and philosophising, in salons and sitting rooms, are hypnotic. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Aug 4, 2015
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "I spent the first half hour wearing 3D glasses (available on a foyer stand) since I thought the film was in 3D as well as Imax. It isn't. But I didn't notice until I glanced round belatedly at un-spectacled colleagues. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 30, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Inside Out is animated cinema's brainstorm of the year, possibly the decade. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 81% Ant-Man (2015) "We start with carefree exhilaration. ... But - wages of bingemanship - we then proceed to boorish silliness and finally stupor. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 16, 2015
2/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Newcomer juvenile lead Taron Egerton -- handsome, bright, Welsh -- has promise. He should be moved in the direction of a good movie. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 13, 2015
4/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) "Just when you feel "No, I can't take it" about another truth-based rock drama addressing the tears and horrors of fame - another Ray or Walk the Line (oh those poor singing millionaires) - along comes the best in memory. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 9, 2015
4/5 95% Amy (2015) "The speed of her fall now appears dizzying and terrible. Or was it rather the speed of her ascension? " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jul 2, 2015
4/5 82% The Overnight (2015) "The Overnight is horribly funny and gets more so: titillating and terrifying in equal measure. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 25, 2015
3/5 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "Mr Holmes is sweet, charming and no more demanding than you want it to be. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 18, 2015
5/5 96% The Look of Silence (2015) "It could crawl under your skin. It could crawl into your soul, you almost feel, and lay eggs. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 11, 2015
4/5 72% Jurassic World (2015) "This is as good as Jurassic cinema gets. Until it gets better next time. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 11, 2015
4/5 78% Queen and Country (2015) "It's a string of little jewels masquerading as a story. The army-life japes and escapades, climaxing in the stealing of an officers' mess clock, might seem picayune. But they form a cumulative glitter. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted Jun 5, 2015
93% An Inconvenient Truth (2006) "A Tantalus glimpse of what America might have been with a president who cared about the planet, its people and its peace. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
2/5 82% Keane (2005) "It is like bad Bresson, if that were a possibility. All signifiers and no meaning; all tics and no truths; all mute emoting and no emotion. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
34% Eros (2004) "How are the mighty scattered, fallen and lost. " ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 15, 2015
63% Clerks II (2006) "The emetic outpouring of buddy love in the last reel deserves the adults-only certificate that the rest narrowly escapes. " ‐ Financial Times
