Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 91% A Quiet Passion (2017) Davies depicts suffocation near-suffocatingly. To love the film you just have to spend time in the pressure chamber of its singularity.‐ Financial Times

4/5 94% Neruda (2016) Neruda starts as political cabaret, turns into dark fairytale, ends as a kind of destiny waltz.‐ Financial Times

4/5 99% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) [A] forcefully eloquent movie.‐ Financial Times

3/5 39% Aftermath (2017) Arnie and Scoot lay on the anguish bravely, even though combating a narrative and psychological vacuum.‐ Financial Times

3/5 94% A Dark Song (2017) The film becomes hypnotic even when a little horrible.‐ Financial Times

1/5 90% Raw (2017) The plot lurches from gross-out to gross-out with little wit and less logic.‐ Financial Times

2/5 66% Free Fire (2017) Free Fire is a blend of thriller and black comedy that doesn't work as either.‐ Financial Times

4/5 97% Graduation (Bacalaureat) (2017) Mungiu gives almost every character, devilish or not, his due, plus his back-story and biographical DNA.‐ Financial Times

3/5 46% Ghost in the Shell (2017) Sanders and his visual effects team leave no sky un-soared, no scenic netherworld un-travelled, and no opportunity unexplored for vivid workouts of colour, texture and kinesis. Even the actors get moments to be memorable.‐ Financial Times

3/5 14% Man Down (2016) This naff war fable with end-of-world curlicues is good only when LaBeouf fills the screen. His anguish, tears and poignant gropings to comprehend are moving and believable.‐ Financial Times

4/5 93% All This Panic (2017) Affirms what we have suspected: fun in the social networking age - web one-upmanship, wars of esteem and self-esteem - has become fraught, even neurotic.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% The Age of Shadows (2016) The Age of Shadows is a giddily compelling South Korean movie about war, spies and resistance history.‐ Financial Times

3/5 67% Life (2017) It's done with some wit and, in the action crescendos, wallop.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 23, 2017
3/5 88% The Lost City of Z (2017) The jungles look fabulous. But there's historical detailing to fill in, and that's where the film takes on weight and waffle.‐ Financial Times

4/5 97% Aquarius (2016) I mean no offence, and hope Brazilian film-maker Kleber Mendonça Filho takes none, when I say Aquarius could be a stage play.‐ Financial Times

4/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) [Stewart] keeps Personal Shopper interesting even in scenes where its storytelling isn't.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
5/5 99% Get Out (2017) It's a brilliantly mischievous, unsettling movie.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
3/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Will Disney go on making live-action movies from its classic feature cartoons? If so, it needs a reason and strategy, not just a budget and back catalogue.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
3/5 97% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) The ending is brave and interesting. Before that, the subtleties of relationship breakdown are finely charted. But elsewhere there is too much gauche alternation between symbolic parallelisms ...‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
4/5 97% The Love Witch (2016) The mix of am-dram solemnity, grand guignol and Terpsichorean time-tripping is hypnotic.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
3/5 73% Catfight (2017) What's it all about? Who knows? Perhaps, the difficult struggle to become an alpha female in a patriarchal world that hasn't yet invented the concept.‐ Financial Times

3/5 77% Kong: Skull Island (2017) It's fun if you check your brain at the cloakroom.‐ Financial Times

4/5 90% Elle (2016) Huppert does blithe amorality better than anyone.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
5/5 92% Certain Women (2016) The movie is faithful to everything real.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
4/5 88% The Student ((M)uchenik) (2017) With its kinetic camerawork, passion-storm dialogue and volatile mood-play it's the most mesmerising Russian film since Leviathan. And topical with it.‐ Financial Times

2/5 73% Viceroy's House (2017) The pain and bloodshed of partition is distilled in a Romeo and Juliet romance, trite and tokenist, between a Hindu servant and his Muslim beloved.‐ Financial Times

3/5 92% Logan (2017) Two and a quarter hours of lycanthropic hokum with fun moments.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
2/5 82% George Best: All by Himself (2017) Gordon's documentary is punctuated with redtop headlines, as if the Daily Bilge and Sunday Schmooze were the authorities to trust on matters of fallen soccer princes.‐ Financial Times

2/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) It gets dotty, then dottier.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 98% The Fits (2016) The Fits is strange and amazing.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
3/5 80% Patriots Day (2017) The hard-drive details of the day's horror stay with you.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 46% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) The actors, all tremendous, make the film sing. The capricious, emotive, ever-changeable close-ups - like Mount Rushmore in a son et lumière on a stormy night - make it dance.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
2/5 84% The Founder (2017) The Founder could have been a Preston Sturges-style comedy/biopic - a high-mischief fairy tale with moral resonance. Instead it does little but polish Ray Kroc's boots.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
3/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) It's touching, sobering, sometimes funny, this lesson in racial history ...‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) A poem of light and colour, of faces and the play of physique, of passions revealed by glance or gesture.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
3/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) The palatial kitsch in Song Dynasty China is lavish. Even foreign mercenaries Matt Damon, Willem Dafoe and Pedro Pascal dress to kill.‐ Financial Times

2/5 46% Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016) Ang Lee will try anything. In Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk that unfortunately includes our patience.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
2/5 93% Fences (2016) Fences is a filmed play that never seems anything else: a yatter of life of death, directed by Denzel Washington from August Wilson's Pulitzer-winning 1983 play.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
3/5 93% LoveTrue (2016) A perversely hypnotic film ...‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
3/5 88% 20th Century Women (2017) Eras and generations mingle productively in this film. It's a social-historical mural that exists in flexitime, where America the Beautiful is an eternal and unassailable dream.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
4/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) The film itself is a cheery hoot and clever with it. Adults can take the kids, or kids can take the adults.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% Tower (2016) Search the film out. It's worth the seeking.‐ Financial Times

5/5 92% Toni Erdmann (2016) Force of feeling and intelligence meets force of comic metaphor and invention, somewhere in a Dadaist deep space miraculously liberated from solemnity.‐ Financial Times

2/5 89% Loving (2016) If Jeff Nichols' Loving were any more piously dull it could bore for the Olympics.‐ Financial Times

2/5 42% Gold (2017) "This is the single hokeyest thing I ever heard in my life," says someone early in Gold. Stick around.‐ Financial Times

4/5 87% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Vintage Mel-odrama.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
4/5 83% Denial (2016) You could call Denial less a feature film, more a glorified telly play: focused, small-scale, monothematic. But it's probing, witty and compelling ...‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
3/5 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) The new film doesn't have the same kind of focus, or locus, for its dark thrills and hilarity.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
1/5 75% Split (2017) Moodying with faux menace around the nutter's underworld, Shyamalan fails to develop his three-pack of vapid victims and pads his script with go-nowhere plot twists.‐ Financial Times

2/5 86% Lion (2016) Director Garth Davis and screenwriter Luke Davies throw all the soap suds at the story.‐ Financial Times
