The Incident (2015)

"Both story and characters are ethereal to the point of frustration, with no backstory or detail to bring any real context to the drama that unfolds." ‐The List

4/5 73%

You've Been Trumped Too (2016)

"As a portrait of a man, it's ugly; as an insight into modern politics, it's both astute and damning." ‐The List

The Light Between Oceans (2016)

"Despite the talent involved, The Light Between Oceans is mawkish when it should be moving." ‐The List

Into the Inferno (2016)

"While Herzog - whose longstanding passion for volcanoes is palpable, and infectious - is never anything less than respectful to these individuals, an undeniable sense of whimsy runs through his hugely entertaining voiceover." ‐The List

Arrival (2016)

"It celebrates the very best traits of humanity ... while also encouraging us to confront life's biggest questions. This is filmmaking at its most powerful and profound." ‐The List

4/5 89%

Elle (2016)

"While the film proves a challenging watch it ultimately works because it recognises, and fully embraces, the fact that there is not one stock response to such an assault." ‐The List

3/5 94%

The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)

"The Handmaiden is part romance, part gothic fairy tale and part psychosexual chamber piece, an initially beguiling film whose heavy-handed love scenes work to undermine its dramatic power." ‐The List

Under The Shadow (2016)

"Fraught with tension and rife with intelligent insight." ‐The List
Posted Sep 26, 2016
4/5 95%

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016)

"With its abundance of archive video and still footage, together with a host of new interviews, it's an undeniably glorious watch." ‐The List

3/5 65%

Anthropoid (2016)

"A film that, while fairly traditional in its approach, is a fitting homage to these extraordinary men." ‐The List
Posted Sep 5, 2016
1/5 7%

Cell (2016)

"The curse of the Stephen King adaptation strikes once again in Cell, an insipid and often ludicrous adaptation of the author's 2006 tech-horror novel." ‐The List
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/5 82%

The Wave (Bolgen) (2016)

"Such apocalyptic events are nothing new on-screen, but Norwegian director Roar Uthaug imbues his film with rather more grit and texture than formulaic Hollywood efforts like 2012 and San Andreas." ‐The List
Posted Aug 8, 2016
1/5 26%

Suicide Squad (2016)

"While it might be good to be bad, Suicide Squad is just plain awful." ‐The List
Posted Aug 5, 2016
2/5 67%

Traders (2015)

"While it may be a film of commendable high ambition, ultimately Traders is just another grim urban fairy tale about the ridiculous games of deeply unlikeable men." ‐The List

2/5 82%

Chevalier (2016)

"Watching these men engage in one foolish game after another is at first mildly amusing then quickly dull ..." ‐The List
Posted Jul 18, 2016
4/5 92%

Queen of Earth (2015)

"Queen of Earth plays like a horror. Yet, at its heart it is a devastating story of depression and its impact." ‐The List
Posted Jun 27, 2016
4/5 94%

Remainder (2015)

"Remainder is a strikingly original, hypnotic film and, by the time it reaches its bold head-scratcher of a denouement, one that leaves an indelible mark." ‐The List
Posted Jun 20, 2016
4/5 74%

The Keeping Room (2015)

"A film that speaks to the universal realities of the female experience." ‐The List
Posted Jun 13, 2016
4/5 85%

The Daughter (2017)

"The Daughter eschews melodrama to become a searing, poignant and devastating study of the seismic power of betrayal." ‐The List
Posted May 23, 2016
2/5 80%

These Final Hours (2015)

"Hilditch's apocalyptic vision is striking in its visuals, bold in its bleakness and completely unoriginal in its core narrative." ‐The List
Posted May 4, 2016
2/5 46%

Knight of Cups (2016)

"Knight of Cups becomes the very thing it claims to satirise, a gilded chalice that reveals itself to be an entirely empty vessel." ‐The List
Posted May 4, 2016
4/5 94%

The Jungle Book (2016)

"Favreau has achieved the near impossible, managing to stay true to both Kipling's tales and Disney's revered 1967 animation, while offering something entirely new." ‐The List
Posted Apr 11, 2016
4/5 65%

Nasty Baby (2015)

"Silva succeeds in keeping his characters sympathetic and their relationships honest, if unconventional, and his approach is bolstered by some terrific performances." ‐The List
Posted Apr 4, 2016
4/5 62%

Black Mountain Poets (2015)

"The cast is brilliant across the board, particularly Richard Elis as the uber-Welsh Gareth, but Black Mountain Poets belongs to Lowe and Wells." ‐The List

4/5 100%

Court (2015)

"Court is a masterful piece of social cinema that rewards audience investment and marks Tamhane out as a filmmaker to watch." ‐The List

The Ones Below (2016)

"Aims for the claustrophobic chills of Rosemary's Baby, but comes closer to the outlandish bunny boiler camp of Fatal Attraction." ‐The List
Posted Mar 7, 2016

The Survivalist (2015)

"The Survivalist is a stunning, thought-provoking film that, despite its bleak focus, has a surprisingly uplifting message about the power of human connection." ‐The List

Concussion (2015)

"[Has] an uneasy, jingoistic tone ..." ‐The List

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

"Plays like an extended Republican Party election broadcast, complete with relentless handheld camera carnage and beating jungle drum soundtrack." ‐The List

Backtrack (2016)

"The film derails long before it lumbers to its tasteless denouement." ‐The List

Innocence Of Memories (2015)

"A beguiling, meditative study of the indelible link between memory and identity, and the transformative power of love." ‐The List

3/5 60%

Joy (2015)

"It's a fascinating story but, as a film, lacks focus and momentum, playing more like a creative experiment than a finished product." ‐The List

Bolshoi Babylon (2015)

"A fascinating watch, and an interesting exploration of the age-old battle between art as creative endeavour and as commercial, and political, enterprise." ‐The List

5/5 89%

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

"While it may be packed with whip-smart, endlessly quotable dialogue and laugh-out-loud moments, its enduring popularity undoubtedly stems from the fact that it has genuine heart." ‐The List
Posted Dec 7, 2015
3/5 100%

All About Them (A Trois, On Y Va) (2015)

"Part human drama, part comedy of errors, All About Them stays on the right side of Carry On-style farce thanks to the authenticity of its characters." ‐The List
Posted Nov 23, 2015
4/5 92%

The Fear Of 13 (2015)

"Yarris was at the mercy of a faceless machine he could not understand, let alone control. Now, over 30 years since his arrest, Sington's captivating, compelling film offers him the most poetic of justice." ‐The List

5/5 97%

Tangerine (2015)

"Bombastic, organic and utterly original, Tangerine is not just a film, it's a vital, visceral experience." ‐The List
Posted Nov 9, 2015
4/5 89%

Mississippi Grind (2015)

"The film's focus is not just the all-consuming power of individual addiction, but the cancerous economic depression felt in all the Mississippi River towns the pair pass through." ‐The List
Posted Oct 19, 2015
4/5 62%

Truth (2015)

"The sheer volume of information means that much of the dialogue feels exposition-heavy, but the performances ensure it never becomes sluggish." ‐The List
Posted Oct 16, 2015
4/5 97%

Brooklyn (2015)

"This is undoubtedly Ronan's coming-of-age role, and she conveys Eilis's quiet strength in the face of huge emotional turmoil without a hint of melodrama." ‐The List
Posted Oct 12, 2015
5/5 73%

Suffragette (2015)

"Suffragette is a piece of living history, a celebration of how far we've come but also a stark reminder that, despite the best efforts of these pioneering women, we still have some distance left to go." ‐The List
Posted Oct 7, 2015
3/5 72%

The Nightmare (2015)

"The experiences and stories - which have all been gathered from the US and UK - are extremely similar and, while initially frightening, the effect is quickly eroded by repetition." ‐The List
Posted Oct 5, 2015
3/5 84%

The Walk (2015)

"A visually exhilarating, profusely congratulatory reflection of Zemeckis' personal belief that Petit is an artist, and someone whose accomplishment deserves nothing but celebration." ‐The List
Posted Sep 28, 2015
4/5 70%

Miss You Already (2015)

"Make no mistake, this is a love story as tender, passionate and powerful as any you're likely to see." ‐The List

The Visit (2015)

"It alternates between horror and comedy, without convincing at either." ‐The List

Legend (2015)

"Legend has one insurmountable flaw: it's just too glossy." ‐The List

The Transporter Refueled (2015)

"All told, this is blunt, offensive filmmaking that should have no place in modern cinema." ‐The List

Another Me (2014)

"Turner is solid, if perhaps miscast, with beguiling screen presence and the strength to (mostly) avoid succumbing to the teeth-gnashing melodrama of her character's situation." ‐The List
