4/5 93% The Guardians (Les Gardiennes) (2018) The beauty and the pathos of the film are vivid in every frame.‐ Guardian

4/5 96% Heathers (1988) Heathers really is odd, like a mix of something by Stephen King and Bret Easton Ellis...‐ Guardian

4/5 100% The Heiresses (Las Herederas) (2018) Martinessi shrewdly combines subtlety, melancholy, satirical observation and candour about sex.‐ Guardian

3/5 69% The Apparition (L'apparition) (2018) A flawed but heartfelt film about the mysterious workings of divine grace, and things that can't entirely be explained away.‐ Guardian

2/5 14% Damascus Cover (2018) [An] unfortunately rather ropey film, destined to be blearily viewed on a thousand long-haul flights or channel-hoppingly glimpsed on your way past ITV4.‐ Guardian

3/5 94% Sicilian Ghost Story (2017) Drawbacks are offset by the directors' terrific confidence and visual style.‐ Guardian

4/5 87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The two great enemies of picnic now get co-billing in this hilarious, delightful and somehow downright lovable entertainment from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.‐ Guardian

5/5 90% The Producers (1968) Each time I've watched it - and I've watched it many times - Mel Brooks' The Producers has felt horribly pertinent to the present moment.‐ Guardian

4/5 81% The Escape (2018) A superlative performance from Gemma Arterton is at the centre of this almost unbearably painful and sad film from writer-director Dominic Savage.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
3/5 80% Iceman (2017) It's a reasonably engaging movie, but based on very familiar filmic archetypes.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
4/5 No Score Yet Tracking Edith (2016) The sinew and texture of history are to be found in this grippingly detailed documentary by Peter Stephan Jungk, based on his 2015 book The Darkrooms of Edith Tudor-Hart.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
4/5 83% La religieuse (The Nun) (1971) A deeply, almost unreadably strange story.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2018
5/5 95% Maurice (1987) Maurice is a candid, lucid, passionate film.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
1/5 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) The whole thing, with its joyless and incessant parade of sub-Tex Avery quirks, looks as if it has been generated by some sort of automated software: a non-entertainment bot.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
4/5 81% Cocote (2018) There is a palpable, intentional artistry in it - though its one that makes the film challengingly opaque.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
3/5 78% Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (2018) The best anecdote is saved for the closing credits, for some reason. ‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
3/5 89% The Receptionist (Jie Xian Yuan) (2018) A valuable, intelligent debut.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 20, 2018
4/5 94% A Prayer Before Dawn (2018) This is grisly, visceral, often unwatchably brutal stuff: what seems like a moment-by-moment depiction of an unspeakable ordeal.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
3/5 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) Pearce has imbibed the spirit of The Killing or Reservoir Dogs with something of John Wick and the futurist alienation of Blade Runner or RoboCop.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
2/5 41% Madame (2018) It's weirdly dated, and the Pygmalion plot device and metropolitan sexiness make it look like a movie that could have come out in the mid-60s.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
2/5 46% Generation Wealth (2018) A frustrating disappointment.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2018
3/5 79% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) More enjoyable than I thought. But please. Enough now.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
2/5 29% Racer and the Jailbird (Le Fidèle) (2018) Frankly, it is a bit of a mess.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
5/5 No Score Yet The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick (Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter) (1977) Wenders is not just playing on the romance of America, but also its dark side. Bloch's America is the America of Jim Thompson. This is America as a lawless and cruel place of violence.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
1/5 47% Marrowbone (2018) This distinctively terrible film is a hideous hotchpotch of shouty overacting and muddled storytelling, unable to make up its mind if it's a family drama, a supernatural chiller or a psychological mystery.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
3/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Crashes and petrolhead spills are what this franchise is reasonably expected to deliver. And this is what it cheerfully does. ‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
5/5 100% Summer 1993 (Estiu 1993) (2018) In its subtlety, richness and warmth it is entirely beguiling - complex and simple at the same time. It is also very moving.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
4/5 94% First Reformed (2018) Shaker furniture in movie form - stark, plain, conceived in austere and intelligent good taste; beautifully made, in fact, but maybe more designed for looking at than actually sitting on.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
4/5 88% Pin Cushion (2018) It is a film whose claustrophobia and nightmare-sadness are superbly controlled, and Scanlan gives us one of the best performances of her career as the pitiful and unpitied Lyn.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
5/5 96% Vertigo (1958) Combines in an almost unique balance Hitchcock's brash flair for psychological shocks with his elegant genius for dapper stylishness.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2018
4/5 93% Incredibles 2 (2018) How great to see them back in this funny, exciting, if less audacious film.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2018
3/5 40% Mary Shelley (2018) Fanning holds the screen as someone intent on writing her own destiny.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
1/5 67% Ideal Home (2018) There are simply no funny lines here.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
4/5 80% The More You Ignore Me (2018) It is a bit rough around the edges at times, with some pretty broad dramatic effects, but the narrative motor keeps humming and the sheer force of sympathy drives it along.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2018
3/5 43% Swimming with Men (2018) This film floats, but, like a synchro-swimmer doing the "egg beater" leg movement, it needs a fair bit of strenuous activity to keep it upright.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
2/5 88% Whitney (2018) There is a strange sense of dancing around the awful truth but never quite getting right to it.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
2/5 65% Uncle Drew (2018) It coasts along on recognition and sports star-status and not enough has been done on the script.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2018
4/5 97% Yellow Submarine (1968) Yellow Submarine is a diverting novelty.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2018
3/5 51% The Bookshop (2018) It is a strange, subdued, rather miserable film, interestingly perceptive on conformism and philistinism as a way of life, and on the disconcerting wiles the inhabitants use in order to thwart Florence's entirely reasonable plans. ‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
3/5 86% Time Trial (2017) There's a painful, pentup anger and hurt at the heart of this documentary portrait of David Millar. ‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2018
5/5 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) This movie is just so piercingly disturbing and riveting.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
2/5 38% Patrick (2018) It's a film jam-packed with very good actors and big names, and suffused with a puppyish willingness to please. But where is the bite?‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
3/5 97% The Endless (2018) There is a very good idea for a really intriguing, startling film here, that finally gets a little lost in its own freakily cosmic claustrophobia.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
3/5 97% Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda (2018) [Sakamoto] is also ceaselessly interested in the possibilities of electronic music, though I have to say shots of him at the piano keyboard are more interesting than him at the computer keyboard.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
5/5 100% Sans Toit ni Loi (Vagabond) (Without Roof or Rule) (1985) An unmissable film from this great director.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
2/5 26% Overboard (2018) [Faris] could be a big star with the right material, perhaps something with more seriousness and pathos. Overboard isn't it.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
4/5 90% Arcadia (2017) Arcadia is a seductive piece of work. Approach it as you might a rich and strange piece of music.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
3/5 71% Kissing Candice (2017) Towards the end, Kissing Candice loses narrative shape, but not before it has given its audience memorable, sensuous images.‐ Guardian
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2018
5/5 No Score Yet Little Vera (Malenkaya Vera) (1989) For all its bleakness and disillusion, there is a poignant innocence in it.‐ Guardian
