Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 97% 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)

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 70% 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 97% 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 83% 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 79% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) 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)

3.5/5 13% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) All-round good fun. ‐ 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 67% 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 40% 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)

1.5/5 90% Their Finest (2017) If you liked The Imitation Game, then this is not for you.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 90% A Dark Song (2017) So dark that at times it is unbearable to watch.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Apr 14, 2017
4/5 74% 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 33% 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)
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
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)
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
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 36% 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)
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
0.5/5 7% Rings (2017) The net effect a poor piece of film-making.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
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)
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2017
2.5/5 81% Chi-Raq (2015) Chi-Raq tries hard but somehow doesn't hit the bullseye.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
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 94% 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)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
3.5/5 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Recommended, but twenty minutes could have been easily shorn off.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
3/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2017) I Daniel, Blake is a deeply humane film but I would quibble with what passes for Loach's humour -- it seems grafted on after the serious bits have been dreamed up and gotten out of the way.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
3.5/5 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) Sure, Daniel Radcliffe's idiot savant is not an original creation and Paul Dano's wide-eyed Hank may get a tad wearing in his histrionics, yet this existential parable for our times should not be dismissed, even if it takes a little patience.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
2.5/5 65% Anthropoid (2016) Anthropoid is a compelling story, well told, with solid performances, but you can't help but wonder what Bertrand Tavernier, say, might have made with this material.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
3/5 39% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) A satisfactory mystery thriller.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2016
5/5 83% Julieta (2016) Suffice to say that this is Almodóvar at the top of his game and Julieta must surely rank alongside the aforementioned works of genius.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 25, 2016
4/5 93% Tickled (2016) Tickled is disturbing and deeply weird, but you have to hand it to Farrier and Reeve for bravely trying to put a stop to the bully tactics of the man behind it all. It's no laughing matter in the end.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 73% Valley Of Love (2016) [Valley of Love features] two actors at the heights of their powers.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2016
5/5 87% The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016) Idol is a frequently moving and inspirational story, which despite succumbing to an air of clichéd sentiment at times, is really a must-see. The performances from all concerned are unsurpassable.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2016
5/5 90% Bobby Sands: 66 Days (2016) Brendan J Byrne's profoundly moving account of Bobby Sands' hunger strike...alternates between an uneasy sense of futility and the spiritual triumph granted in part by by hindsight, the triumph that appears to trump the relentless despair.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2016
2.5/5 No Score Yet The Truth Commissioner (2016) The Truth Commissioner is a taut, engaging drama in the style of those Sunday night BBC or ITV dramas that tell a story decently, but do not leave you clamouring for more.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
4/5 94% Last Hijack (2014) Relentlessly brooding and engaging, it is certainly worth seeing.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
1.5/5 34% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) There is a serious functional problem running throughout in that some of the dialogue is conducted in Spanish with English subtitles, and some is conducted in English, even when Bolivians are talking to each other. How weird is that? Don't bother.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
2.5/5 61% Race (2016) All in all a conventional movie that won't frighten the horses.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
2/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) The loss of life is movingly depicted but these largely unfeasible, weirdly unreal characters are much too cocky and swaggery, when not being disdainful and patronising towards the locals. So don't bother.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
3/5 39% Strangerland (2015) Secrets and lies is the name of the game, in other words, as this taut but sinister ensemble piece turns the screws in what is an intelligent, all-engrossing - and indeed Irish-produced - film.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
3/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) With some reservations, A Bigger Splash is an entertaining exercise and certainly worth seeing.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
