3/5 83% Ghost Stories (2018) We...end up laughing at fear - or trying - while the screen still runs with our perspiration from what went before.‐ Financial Times

4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) Size isn't everything. Witness the miniaturist marvel that is A Quiet Place.‐ Financial Times

2/5 67% Wonderstruck (2017) The plot unfolds like a bad Victorian novel, where the coincidence monster waits at the end of Sentimentality Lane.‐ Financial Times

4/5 86% Thoroughbreds (2018) It's a killing movie in all senses. It sways like a cobra preparing to strike; and it is creepily, creepingly funny.‐ Financial Times

90% Isle of Dogs (2018) The stop-motion techniques of this director's Fantastic Mr Fox graduate to a new charm, wit and zany inventiveness.‐ Financial Times

1/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) It is boring with an almost nuclear boringness.‐ Financial Times

83% Blockers (2018) One girl's crush is another girl; so that's progress for popcorn cinema. So are the good timing, the manic but skilful physical comedy and the snappy calibre of the one-liners.‐ Financial Times

2/5 35% Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House (2017) There is lots of menace; little magic; and a growing sense that this film could be sent straight out to schools, where minds in need of learning won't be corrupted by nuance, flair or artistry.‐ Financial Times

2/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Pacific Rim Uprising is the first cuckoo of spring. Don't leave your nest unattended.‐ Financial Times

2/5 90% The Third Murder (Sandome no satsujin) (2017) The visual style is sober noir. The plot is wannabe Dostoevsky. But somehow the film never quite enthrals.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (2018) You end up loving her and the film. This woman is unique.‐ Financial Times

5/5 81% Have a Nice Day (Hao Ji Le) (2018) We'd like to take the whole film home, to keep it and cherish its dark wit and intensity.‐ Financial Times

4/5 78% Unsane (2018) iPhones for cameras! It's a perfect storm of deprivation on themes of deprivation and dysfunctionalism.‐ Financial Times

5/5 84% The Square (2017) Östlund is a clever, dazzling misanthrope.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
4/5 88% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) This quasi-autobiographical trilogy is further proof that AD is the Proust of modern French cinema.‐ Financial Times

3/5 62% Peter Rabbit (2018) Will Gluck's high-speed digimation romp is best whenever it stops still, even screeches still, to comment tartly on the iconic. Not just iconic-Potterish; also iconic-proverbial.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
2/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) If I see this silly woman clambering through jungles once more - formerly Angelina Jolie, she is now Alicia Vikander - I'll go stark, napalm-wielding mad.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
75% My Generation (2017) Blimey. Seen it all before, haven't we?‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
2/5 0% Walk Like a Panther (2018) Blimey O'Riley.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
2/5 94% Sweet Country (2018) I can't understand the raves from some critics for Australia's Sweet Country.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
4/5 96% Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017) It may be the best "not just a pretty face" story in the history of the world.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
4/5 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) The film is a bad trip so trippy you could start to enjoy its fortissimo miserabilism.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2018
4/5 70% Erase and Forget (2017) If you thought America had reached the ne plus ultra of telegenic wackos who covet the reins of power, think, on this evidence, again. Yet there is an honesty and transparency in Gritz's bluster that makes him oddly charismatic.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
5/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) About someone searching for himself - and, in this case, herself - in a landscape dense with the visual language of that quest.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
2/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) In Red Sparrow Jennifer Lawrence acts like a female impersonator riffing through routines.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
3/5 82% Game Night (2018) It's a one-note black comedy. But one is better than none, and this note is high, passably sharp and could crack the odd martini glass.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
3/5 27% Birth of the Dragon (2017) It's the usual trope-iary of stunts and oriental wisdoms, redeemed by stellar work in the main roles.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
3/5 70% Finding Your Feet (2018) It's mad, but not bad: one of those intrepidly schmaltzy fluff operas the British sometimes do well.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
2/5 76% Dark River (2017) Everything feels generic; from the grey-clouded gorgeous countryside (belying Barnard's stated aversion to putting nature's beauty on a pedestal) to the characters summed up by their tendentiously themed pasts.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
4/5 100% The Ice King (2017) [A] well-crafted documentary ...‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
3/5 90% I, Tonya (2018) A good story, told with flair if not finesse.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 21, 2018
3/5 75% You Have No Idea How Much I Love You (Nawet nie wiesz, jak bardzo cie kocham) (2016) However much you praise the intensity of the two female performances - anguish, real tears, sobbing - and the close-in concentration of the camerawork, the film seems oddly un-stabilised.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
3/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Pulses attractively like a luminous toyshop novelty; one inspired by The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954).‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
4/5 99% Lady Bird (2017) Almost everything here bespeaks Gerwig, including the cast's tendency to act one line or dramatic moment with breezy brio, as if already on the run to the next. Very GG.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2018
4/5 96% Black Panther (2018) Crashingly enjoyable, frequently exciting and even, when it wants, borderline witty.‐ Financial Times

2/5 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Oh dear. Clint Eastwood, what have you done?‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
4/5 73% The Mercy (2017) Meltdown measured by the cubic millimetre: that's what Firth gives and it's perfect. This is a sea voyage in which we truly navigate by a star.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
4/5 94% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2018) As a missing-child procedural, the film is mesmerising. We traverse the steppes of despair, that vast, wintry landscape barren and obdurate.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
2/5 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Like a Perry Mason episode that has accidentally collided with Philadelphia.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
5/5 91% Phantom Thread (2018) Take your seat; settle comfortably; prepare to be taken to hell and back, by a master tour guide using the scenic route.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
3/5 41% Den of Thieves (2018) Gerard Butler, as a ruthless LA County sheriff in Den of Thieves, is hard-drinking, hard-swearing and hard-living. As Mae West said, a hard man is good to find.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
89% Deep End (1971) Skolimowski allows his characters' dreams total freedom, and within that subjective arena anything can happen.‐ Monthly Film Bulletin
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2018
4/5 82% The Nothing Factory (A Fábrica de Nada) (2017) There is gathering power as we peer into lives, conflicts and labour pains, in all senses, of a new-born industrial showdown.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
2/5 51% Downsizing (2017) Dare we say that this once admired indie writer-director, who made Exhibition, Sideways and About Schmidt, is developing a humourless streak?‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
4/5 77% Last Flag Flying (2017) Linklater and cast find buddyism's frail absurdity. They also find the way it can torque triteness into Talking About America.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
4/5 82% Early Man (2018) The film is funny, silly in the best sense and full of deadpan puns, malapropisms and wordplay.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2018
3/5 40% Attraction (Prityazhenie) (2017) Whenever the mothership starts whirring, or its mutant metallic spawn work their warlike mischief, it's quite a lot of fun.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
2/5 57% The Commuter (2018) This tale is so far-fetched there should be a wagon of salt, for regular pinch-taking, hitched to the train's rear.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
3/5 84% The Final Year (2018) Time is running out, we're urged to feel, for idealism's honest broking. By the film's last scenes - election night 2016 and its poignant Götterdämmerung - it has run out.‐ Financial Times
