Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 79% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) Lights a subtle glow under Borg, simmering his troubled introspection with help from Sverrir Gudnason's well-acted and startling lookalike.‐ Financial Times

4/5 98% In Between (2018) It's sassily directed and terrifically acted. The main virtue of this fizzy, fierce, sometimes funny girls-together gig is that the actresses are "on" throughout.‐ Financial Times

4/5 87% Wind River (2017) In its marriage of man and landscape, Sheridan's film is like an Anthony Mann Western remade. It's a Naked Spur gone snowy; a Far Country gone far, feral and scenically tremendous.‐ Financial Times

4/5 82% In Syria (Insyriated) (2017) Insyriated is a powerful piece of theatre-cinema. Just bring your knowledge of the real war to scatter for seasoning and specificity.‐ Financial Times

3/5 85% It (2017) The last hour collapses into junk.‐ Financial Times

3/5 83% Patti Cake$ (2017) She's a screwball amalgam of Ricki Lake and Honey G; with a last-reel hair makeover verging on the Adele.‐ Financial Times

4/5 99% God's Own Country (2017) As much as a gay romance - touching, awkward, revelatory - God's Own Country is a story about whom we belong to or choose to belong to.‐ Financial Times

3/5 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Hammer horror meets 19th-century music hall meets postmodernism, Peter Ackroyd-style.‐ Financial Times

4/5 84% Detroit (2017) Detroit comes out of its corner slugging and barely stops. By the end the viewer has a swollen eye, ringing ears and a conviction that the referee should have stopped the fight.‐ Financial Times

5/5 100% Hotel Salvation (2017) The film has feeling, warmth, wisdom and locations gorgeous with history.‐ Financial Times

3/5 92% Logan Lucky (2017) We admire the cheek and chic of how it's done. We wonder quite why it was thought worth doing.‐ Financial Times

3/5 79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) Gore has a gift, here as in Inconvenient 1, for making statistics enthral.‐ Financial Times

3/5 78% Final Portrait (2018) Rush and Hammer are as good as the material allows, occasionally better.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% La Soledad (2016) Startling as much for its existence as for its merits.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
5/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) You can't chase it from your mind. You can't exorcise it. The film stands there white-sheeted and eyeholed, staring into your soul and depths ...‐ Financial Times

0/5 77% Atomic Blonde (2017) Watching Atomic Blonde is a cinematic crash course. It's a course in how to crash a movie, and a script, and a cast; how to crash them till nothing is left but smoking smithereens.‐ Financial Times

80% Tom of Finland (2017) A decent, worthy, lugubrious biopic: exactly the adjectives one wouldn't choose for the art of its subject and protagonist.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
3/5 9% The Emoji Movie (2017) Occasionally it's as if The Lego Movie is reaching out a long, friendly arm to Inside Out and falling into the chasm between. But the film is inventive too.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
4/5 91% Land of Mine (Under Sandet) (2017) Land of Mine is small but powerfully formed.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
5/5 91% Icarus (2017) Icarus may be the best nonfiction movie of the year.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
5/5 98% The Big Sick (2017) The Big Sick finds plots by losing them. That's its genius. One moment we are in an ethnic satire; the next a romcom; the next a hospital comedy-drama. But that's existence.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
4/5 100% Cardboard Gangsters (2017) The film is crackingly done, with a bleak humour when needed and a black savagery when not.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
3/5 90% Girls Trip (2017) Perhaps it's best to embrace rave, raunch and riot, and go with the flow. Just try to avoid the flow in the Boulevard.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
4/5 99% City of Ghosts (2017) It's about providing chapter, verse, word, dot and comma about factional brutality and its methods in a moment of history, so that no one is condemned by ignorance - or excused by it - to repeat that history.‐ Financial Times

4/5 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) If you grew up being told that toilet humour isn't funny, try this.‐ Financial Times

4/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) Whenever it creates or recreates the bigger picture, Dunkirk itself becomes a bigger, bolder, better picture.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2017
3/5 78% The Beguiled (2017) It's stylish, lord knows: Old Colonial sets, a ton of backlighting and mock-liturgical music doing the full Monteverdi. The cast is classy. The script has moments.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2017
4/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) Reeves casts a moody, noirish, embattled spell. There are daring, endearingly dotty hints of a homage to Heart of Darkness.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
3/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) The film is at its best in querulous, nervy scenes of cabined panic as the unknown lays shadowy siege.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2017
2/5 43% Song to Song (2017) We're left with gorgeous photography (Emmanuel Lubezki), a plotless plot and a sense that some transcendentalist Nashville may lurk here waiting to be discovered, though not - thanks - by me.‐ Financial Times

4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) The screen is a Fourth of July for firework special effects and pyrotechnic slug-outs by land, sky and sea. Take the kids; take the family; take yourself.‐ Financial Times

4/5 98% Kedi (2017) You needn't be a cat lover to enjoy Kedi, since the film will make you one anyway.‐ Financial Times

4/5 82% Risk (2017) It's to Poitras's credit that she tries delving into the subtler, more inward and more intransigent workings of the Assange brain. Her spoon here is shaped more like a surgical scalpel.‐ Financial Times

3/5 59% Alone in Berlin (2017) The two lead actors give their finest. And Daniel Brühl makes it three, slipping in a telling cameo as a conflicted police investigator, keen to show mercy but coerced by his "betters" to show none.‐ Financial Times

2/5 17% All Eyez on Me (2017) The movie churns out his story like sausage meat: turgidly linear, and tasteless in a literal sense of dead-on-the-palate.‐ Financial Times

5/5 93% Baby Driver (2017) It's a triumph. It's as lightweight as a soufflé, yet as solid as a Ferrari. And it interweaves the inner and outer lives of its hero lightly but with real perception.‐ Financial Times

2/5 45% Hampstead (2017) 100 minutes of flimsy whimsy, calling on Keaton ... to dispense her clucking, ditsy bewilderment, school of Annie Hall, while Gleeson does bluff and crotchety charm, school of Brendan Gleeson.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% Edith Walks (2017) A journey enriched by visions, thoughts, music, art-and-philosophy digressions, and other perks of the Kötting package tour.‐ Financial Times

3/5 87% Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017) It's a bit impersonal, a bit dial-a-doc, this assemblage of concert footage and rounded-up, B-list witnesses.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
4/5 89% By the Time It Gets Dark (Dao khanong) (2017) The movie is hypnotic to watch and wonder at - even if these filmmaking Thais don't seem to bind and that is work which must be done by their audiences.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% Destination Unknown (2017) It's a powerful, moving, unremitting film, lit by the incandescence of spirit of those who bore the unbearable and lived on to bear witness.‐ Financial Times

3/5 49% Churchill (2017) The conflicts rage on. The main one is between the Masterpiece Theatre staging and the subversive revision of history. It's Brian Cox's Churchill who brings them together.‐ Financial Times

4/5 65% Slack Bay (Ma loute) (2017) It's spellbinding, not least, to watch Dumont give pastoral comedy the full welly after basing his early, austere career on giving pastoral tragedy hardly any histrionic "booting" at all.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
4/5 73% Ballerina (2016) The movie is a comical and visual treat. And there's a touching ending. Take the kids; take yourself; take everyone you know.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2017
4/5 73% Berlin Syndrome (2017) Its mundane detailing - trite domestic purgatory along with the hellish psychological torment - erodes grand guignol in favour of a stoical acceptance perhaps even deadlier.‐ Financial Times

2/5 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) The piano-dominated score tries to run its fingers up and down our spines. The actors try their best. It's the script and plot that let everything, and finally everyone, down.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2017
4/5 89% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) It's like an Arthur Miller play gone large-screen, complete with act divisions, and Israeli writer-director Joseph Cedar's script has a Miller-worthy density of moral wit.‐ Financial Times

1/5 16% The Mummy (2017) The film might have been silly enough to be enjoyably camp. Instead it's a witless omnium gatherum of mongrel sources and clichés.‐ Financial Times

5/5 98% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) It's a little masterpiece.‐ Financial Times

2/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) The images are tamely drawn; the tale is wanly evolved.‐ Financial Times
