T-Meter Title | Year
71% Annette (2021) Leos Carax's movie is an idiosyncratic showcase for an unlikely, idiosyncratic star in Adam Driver... - The New Republic EDIT

79% In The Earth (2021) What it rarely feels is entirely new, never quite successfully conjuring up the air of evil that, for example, permeates Lars von Trier's 2009 film Antichrist. - New Statesman EDIT

100% Indiscreet (1958) We are never unsure about how Indiscreet will end, but the way it gets there -- lightly, cleverly, at a pace and with a rhythm that is closer to a foxtrot than a sprint -- makes the exercise worthwhile. - New Statesman EDIT

62% Shampoo (1975) George is that rare breed of lothario whom we believe when he suggests that he is promiscuous because he loves women too much and too well, a casualty of his own emotional immaturity. - New Statesman EDIT

33% In the Cut (2003) In the Cut is masterful in its suggestion of the ambient, omnipresent air of sexual threat that exists in traditional heterosexual dynamics. - New Statesman EDIT

76% High Art (1998) As well as its procession of downtown drug soirées, High Art offers one of the more sensitive on-screen depictions of lesbian sex in (relatively) mainstream cinema. - New Statesman EDIT

82% Happiest Season (2020) It cleverly turns a few of the enduring clichés of the genre on their heads and adds new jeopardy by spinning queerer touches - New Statesman EDIT

73% Enter the Void (Soudain le vide) (2010) As with most of Noé's films, Enter the Void is a bright, bratty middle finger, making it the perfect setting for a natural-born provocatrice such as de la Huerta. - New Statesman EDIT

97% Céline et Julie Vont en Bateau (Celine and Julie Go Boating) (1974) Rivette, playing fast and loose with unreality, has made a film capable of traveling forward, rushing, to catch up with These Uncertain Times. - New Statesman EDIT

66% Cosmopolis (2012) Cosmopolis is exhilarating in two ways. The first is that it offers up the soothing image of a billionaire capitalist brought to heel by riots. The second is that Pattinson's work as Packer. - New Statesman EDIT

40% Southland Tales (2007) Southland Tales is dizzyingly maximalist, never happy with one set-piece if it can introduce five. It is unhinged, and occasionally exhilarating, and quite often funny. - New Statesman EDIT

95% Little Women (2019) Greta Gerwig's take on Louisa May Alcott's novel is intelligent and fleet, refreshing if not radical, and as organic in its feminist convictions as it is in its depiction of close-knit sororal love. - The New Republic EDIT

71% The King (2019) Having survived the trial-by-fire of emerging as a sensitive, talented actor...Pattinson is free from the tyranny of having to make "good" decisions, giving him the opportunity to make interesting ones instead. - The New Republic EDIT

92% The Price of Everything (2018) Cool and nominally neutral, there is nonetheless a genius use of one scene from Martin Scorsese's grim and glossily-reproachful The Wolf of Wall Street that makes the director's feelings on the subject crystal clear. - Little White Lies EDIT
