83% The Portuguese Nun (A Religiosa Portuguesa) (2009) If you feel utterly nonplussed, wait and see. You may find that you have been seduced by stealth and entered the small, growing band of devotees for whom Green's cinema comes near to fulfilling an absolute.‐ Sight and Sound

91% 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

65% Bread and Roses (2001) Yet in a period of stylistic ostentation, Loach's modest transparency of means is salutary.‐ Sight and Sound

63% 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
