Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Volver (2006)

"Though it may seem churlish to knock a film-maker whose only crime has been a naked desire to please audiences, Volver really is one of Pedro Almodóvar's weaker efforts." ‐ Sight and Sound

The Cider House Rules (1999)

"What's bizarre about the movie is how it grafts greeting-card schmaltz on to a muckraking liberal agenda." ‐ Sight and Sound

Dancer in the Dark (2000)

"The situations that writer-director Lars von Trier serves up here might be embarrassingly florid, but the coupling of his manipulative skills and Björk's showy intensity results in a movie with the force of an emotional bulldozer." ‐ Sight and Sound

Bread and Roses (2001)

"Yet in a period of stylistic ostentation, Loach's modest transparency of means is salutary." ‐ Sight and Sound

Ride With the Devil (1999)

"While the movie intermittently revs up for some showy combat scenes, its real métier is a texture of fine-grained observation that brings history to life on the molecular level." ‐ Sight and Sound
