Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3.5/5 98% Lucky (2017) Harry Dean Stanton's swansong as an actor is a wryly affectionate exercise that has some arresting moments but teeters towards sentimentality because of some dud notes in the screenplay. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 33% The King of Thieves (2018) The film is trading cheaply and knowingly on former glories when it should be concentrating on a story which in truth does not have much comic value in the first place.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 97% The Rider (2018) Young Jandreau gives a towering performance, broody, watchful, charismatic. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) A reflective work, which is worth seeing for its treatment of delicate themes.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 67% The Seagull (2018) In sum, not so bad, but somehow fails to scale the heights.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 No Score Yet Elvis: '68 Comeback Special (2018) The camera only loves the man himself, perhaps a measure of his stardom, or otherwise that was what the Colonel wanted.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 82% Under the Tree (Undir trénu) (2018) Director Sigurðsson turns the screws as far as he can in this blackly absurdist tour de force, with a mostly smart and original screenplay.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 100% The Image You Missed (2018) Avoiding the mawkish and sentimental, The Image You Missed is a highly-skilled work of art, with a reflective, uncompromising approach to biography.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 14% Damascus Cover (2018) Jonathan Rhys Meyers deserves a better script and so does everybody else. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 94% Sicilian Ghost Story (2017) While there are hallucinatory elements which are integral to the story, there is at the same time a curiously rugged cinematic artistry about the film which is in Italian with English subtitles.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 70% Edie (2017) Edie leaves these charming possibilities lingering and trembles with a poignant sense of mystery and loss.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 100% A Cambodian Spring (2018) Illuminating and absorbing...‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 92% Lean on Pete (2018) A respectful treatment, and a brilliant performance from Charlie Plummer, but in truth the novel is so good that it's a hard act to follow.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 55% Unless (2016) Alan Gilsenan's adaptation of Carol Shields' final novel Unless has the delicate touch and the humanity that characterise his documentaries. Yet somehow one is left wanting more. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 84% The Square (2017) Ultimately, the philosophy at play is just too shallow and simplistic. Best viewed under the categories 'addictive sensationalism' or 'sophisticated, accelerated soap.' ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
4/5 95% Sweet Country (2018) A film which celebrates the mysterious, harsh landscape and those shimmering horizons of the Northern Territories in what is, aside from taut drama, a work of visionary cinematography.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) There is lots of frenetic movement, in cars or buses, and a hedonistic nightclub scene which turns into a captivatingly stylish dance routine.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 28, 2018
4/5 93% Journey's End (2018) This haunting, sensitive film is another reminder of the futility of war, rendered small-scale and close-up in this instance but with big implications.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
3/5 84% The Final Year (2018) Chris Barker has done the best with his material, and he has managed to show the dying days of an administration, warts and all at best. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) Eric Clapton would became one of the world's greatest blues guitarists. Yet all the success in the world could not take away profound personal insecurity and an inability to trust for much of his life as this masterful film carefully documents.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 82% Brad's Status (2017) Ben Stiller inhabits the role of a hard-pressed, somewhat neurotic dad with brilliant fidelity in the engrossing Brad's Status.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 96% The Death of Stalin (2018) ... Armando Iannucci's passable screwball comedy which might aspire to satire but actually isn't so.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 82% Marshall (2017) Marshall is a reliably entertaining film based on a celebrated 1940s trial in the early career of Thurgood Marshall... ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 55% Return to Montauk (2017) ... Return to Montauk is utterly absorbing.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 No Score Yet Maze (2017) You will be riveted to your seat in what is a refreshingly authentic film, which has not one false note.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 83% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) Matters would have been better if the makers had taken their hand off the throttle, quietened it down by just a few notches and let the story breathe a bit more. A valiant attempt though and not a bad film at all.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Passable is about the best one can say about The Limehouse Golem, although if you are a Sherlock Holmes or Jack the Ripper fan, it may well float your boat.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 90% David Lynch: The Art Life (2017) An intense, close-up study, David Lynch: The Art Life tracks the formative years of a filmmaker whose mix of vulnerability and self-assuredness proves intriguing in this excellent documentary.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 66% Pilgrimage (2017) Brendan Muldowney's Pilgrimage is a sturdy piece of sophisticated hokum.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 100% Sanctuary (2016) Sanctuary balances humour and seriousness, as it follows a group of adults with intellectual disabilities, who break free from an unusually lax supervisor on a pre-Christmas Galway outing.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 91% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) A Man Called Ove is a touching portrait of a grumpy, widowed 59-year-old Swede with a heart of gold underneath his curt bad manners and frightful temper. We've been here before but it's a good spin on the theme.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 44% Nails (2017) Maybe I'm just slow. Or maybe there's gonna be a sequel, perhaps also funded by The Irish Film Board. Nails just wasn't my kind of film.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 100% In View (2016) Writer and director Ciarán Creagh is certainly a director to watch in the future and the cinematography is admirably cool and restrained.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 76% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) It's Broadbent's movie, the man is superb, at the top of his game with sardonic wisecracks and a weary world-view.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2017
2.5/5 32% The Secret Scripture (2017) Jim Sheridan's adaptation of Sebastian Barry's novel is engaging and competent, although Vanessa Redgrave doesn't suit as the elderly Irishwoman Rose.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 96% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) Farhadi's deeply humane work will make you think about the easy trap that is revenge and the wiser course that may involve forgiveness.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 67% Tomato Red (2017) Tomato Red is a strong, engaging film in which Irish director Juanita Wilson manipulates the dramatic elements to engender a keen sense of pathos and despair.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
1/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) Dafoe, Damon and Pascal have no choice but to be undistinguished in their delivery of the wooden screenplay, yet another failed element in what is a dull, formulaic film.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 93% Toni Erdmann (2016) At the heart of this deeply-convincing human drama is the lingering after-effect of unmentioned family discord, astutely tempered with some brilliant comic set-pieces.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 81% Chi-Raq (2015) Chi-Raq tries hard but somehow doesn't hit the bullseye.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 No Score Yet South (2017) It is impossible not to be drawn into this touching, simple story which deserves a wide audience. It's gutsy, rootsy and real.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 70% Moscow Never Sleeps (2017) A film needs more than such rich poetic moments of camerawork, and if he can find a more nuanced, novelistic screen-play, O'Reilly could make a great film next time around.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2016
4/5 93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) A cautionary film about the uncharted future for the internet -- and scientists in essence know little about how that future will roll out.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
