Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 83% The Brand New Testament (Le tout nouveau testament) (2016) It's just as silly as it sounds, but it's also a joyous celebration of heresy from a country that deserves a good laugh. ‐ Financial Times

4/5 93% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016) [A] warmly enveloping exploration of grief, guilt and gradually letting go. ‐ Financial Times

3/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) Director Gavin Hood works the tension and the moral uncertainty to good effect but at times the film feels schematic and too much like revision. ‐ Financial Times

4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Through it all - action set-pieces, eco-subplots, a few frights - Favreau drives the plot like a man with a machete, clearing the way for us to be swept along, dazzled, delighted. ‐ Financial Times

3/5 76% The Connection (2015) At times it feels like money for old tropes but Dujardin is a likeable lead who shows he can do more than just ooze charm as he starts to crack the case at the expense of even bigger fissures in his family life. ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 28, 2015
3/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) When Miller called "action" on this reboot he really meant it. ‐ Financial Times

2/5 63% The Source (La source des femmes) (2011) Radu Mihaileanu's update of Lysistrata with overtones of the Arab Spring never settles on a consistent tone; as a result, serious moments lack force and lighter moments feel hollow. ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 17, 2012
3/5 88% She Monkeys (Apflickorna) (2011) Aschan gives her film a glacial surface while suggesting a maelstrom of suppressed rage and sexual urges just beneath. ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 17, 2012
4/5 65% 2 Days in New York (2012) This is Delpy's picture and she handles the writing-directing-starring juggler's act well, showing an insightful eye for cross-cultural quirks and modern mores. ‐ Financial Times
Posted May 17, 2012
2/5 29% Machine Gun Preacher (2011) Despite the most worthy intentions, Childers cannot single-handedly save Sudan and Butler cannot save this movie. ‐ Financial Times
Posted Nov 3, 2011
2/5 71% The Future (2011) July, who gave us the lovably odd Me and You and Everyone We Know, has layered on so much self-conscious whimsy - monologues from the cat, dialogues with the moon and other dashes of magical realism - that the central drama struggles to be heard. ‐ Financial Times
Posted Nov 3, 2011
3/5 68% Jack Goes Boating (2010) With fine and affecting performances all round, this is an enjoyably old-fashioned ensemble piece and a solid start to a career behind the camera. ‐ Financial Times
