My King (Mon roi) (2016)

"A great, seething pot of delicious emotional noodles." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Elle (2016)

"Huppert's long-standing genius for expressing complex cocktails of emotions with casual precision is vital to this role." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

The Neon Demon (2016)

"A glittering, etherised nightmare, drenched in cold sweat, with a dark, coiled-panther energy that springs at you in fitful, snarling bursts." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Risk (2016)

"Risk doesn't burnish the Assange myth - it injects you into the bloodstream of the Assange story." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2016)

"Even long-standing fans of the Japanese filmmaker might be taken aback by the supreme subtlety of his latest, achingly beautiful ode to the quiet complexities of family life." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

5/5 96%

Aquarius (2016)

"The film's lucid sense of place and space, helped along by the camera's eye for sensual visual detail and sound design to make your eardrums groan in delight, is one of the film's most generous pleasures." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 90%

The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017)

"Though there isn't a single word of dialogue in the film's 80-minute running time, the big questions it asks, about ambition, acceptance and the beauty of companionship, ring loud in every heart-melting frame." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 66%

Personal Shopper (2016)

"The film depends on a performance from Stewart in which she's virtually never off-screen or less than riveting." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 17, 2016
4/5 89%

Loving (2016)

"The film's determination not to overcook any single scene means the tears it eventually draws feel honestly come by - and the wind-rustled beauty of Adam Stone's cinematography make us realise this world shouldn't be simply written off as a bad job." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

5/5 92%

The Nice Guys (2016)

"The BFG feels very much like Spielberg's Powell and Pressburger film - it's a picture that could have only been made now, but feels rooted in the past." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 15, 2016
5/5 75%

The BFG (2016)

"While the note-perfect script, written by the late Melissa Matheson (who also scripted E.T.), treats Dahl's words with radiant respect, it also subtly reworks them to make the story cinematic to its soul." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 15, 2016

Toni Erdmann (2016)

"If you feel there's no space in your life for a 162-minute German comedy, make room." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 15, 2016
5/5 86%

Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)

"The look of the film - hair, costumes, even sunlight - is exactly right. The sound of it is even better. Music constantly plays from ubiquitous car stereos and turntables, and every scene has its own groove." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 12, 2016
4/5 70%

Café Society (2016)

"Café Society isn't Vonnie's story, but it's Stewart's film." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 12, 2016
3/5 58%

Money Monster (2016)

"There's lots of glossy fun to be had. Clooney attacks the role of a journalist who rediscovers his conscience in real time with sticky-fingered glee, while Roberts is beguilingly composed as... his conscience, superego and puppeteer." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 12, 2016

I Saw the Light (2016)

"The genre's most egregious clichés aren't just put to work, but paraded around like prize sheep." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted May 5, 2016

Ratchet & Clank (2016)

"In a golden period for both animation and children's filmmaking, here is a head-splitting reminder of just how bad those two things can get." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Miles Ahead (2016)

"This is a tumultuous and messy film that leaves you craving all the Miles Davis it doesn't give you, and I wouldn't have wanted it to be any other way." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Louder Than Bombs (2016)

"The film leaves you crying out for more bombs, more noise - and more Huppert." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"This is the cinematic superhero showdown you've dreamt of since childhood, precisely because that's everything - and all - it wants to be." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"A delicious, finger-tingling comedy about the creative instinct that makes your heart want to squawk with joy." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Hardcore Henry (2016)

"A mostly dreadful piece of would-be #viral #content disguised as an action film. " ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 9, 2016

The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)

"A welcome surprise: sharper and funnier than its doom-laden predecessor, with a fantasy setting immersive enough to distract from the narrative's various chips and cracks." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Apr 7, 2016
4/5 94%

The Jungle Book (2016)

"The film could have easily passed muster as a dry technical showcase, but Favreau gives it real analogue earth-under-the-fingernails charm." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

4/5 85%

Francofonia (2016)

"The mood's often as fun as it is funereal, and though the film occasionally feels clever in a way that isn't necessarily a compliment, Sokurov's ideas have a philosophical depth and richness that are found almost nowhere else in cinema." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Eddie The Eagle (2016)

"Fletcher has a brilliantly attuned sixth sense for what his audience wants to see at any given millisecond, and Eddie's final flight, from the 90-foot ramp at Calgary, is a mini-masterpiece of intuitive cutting." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 98%

Zootopia (2016)

"One of the film's great strengths is the trust it puts in its young audience to decode its complex, nuanced message about the value of difference." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 22, 2016
5/5 91%

The Witch (2016)

"One of the scariest horror movies in years - and not the creep-up-and-prod-you kind of scary either, but a profound, unsettling dread that gnaws at your bones, and which comes back to find you in the dark." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 10, 2016
5/5 92%

Anomalisa (2015)

"Even in its apparently throwaway opening gag, Anomalisa has human existence covered." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

"The film zips between claustrophobic tension and nervous laughs with hoverfly agility." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

2/5 13%

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016)

"Like the earlier Divergent films, Allegiant is studded with enticing science-fiction ideas, but it keeps such a poker-straight face while presenting them, you often can't help but crack up." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Mar 8, 2016
4/5 78%

Time Out Of Mind (2015)

"Moverman's screenplay boldly rejects conventional plot structure, instead showing us George's life in breaths and snatches. It's all soundtracked by the city itself: a great clamour of engines and voices, disembodied and indistinct." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

London Has Fallen (2016)

"Najafi ... transfers Escape From New York across the Atlantic, turning London into the terrorist safari park of Donald Trump's most fevered imaginings." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Cemetery of Splendor (2016)

"This is the same wondrous journey on which Apichatpong sends his audience: inwards and downwards, to a place where the simplest rhythms of everyday life become hallowed and mythic." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

The Forest (2016)

"Unearned jump-scares abound - handily, Japan is full of toothless OAPs who randomly leap at young women during the night - as do the kind of obviously digitally augmented ghouls that dispel a creepy atmosphere on contact." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

The Brothers Grimsby (2016)

"A vital, lavish, venomously profane two fingers up at Benefits Street pity porn and the social division it fosters. I laughed, winced, gagged, then laughed even more." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Freeheld (2015)

"It does all the feeling on your behalf, and doesn't seem particularly bothered if you join in or not." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Triple 9 (2016)

"It's an accomplished disappointment: the zealous cast, surplus of attitude and sinewy set pieces never quite compensate for the thinly sketched characters, unfocused plot and general gnawing sense of potential not being met." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Feb 18, 2016
3/5 63%

The Finest Hours (2016)

"Affleck enlivens it with an unexpected, film-elevating performance that's almost like a pastiche of On The Waterfront-era Marlon Brando - all mumbles, smouldering stares, private smiles, and attention-grabbing fiddles." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Feb 18, 2016
2/5 48%

How To Be Single (2016)

"Nothing that even dimly approximates real life is anywhere to be seen, unless your idea of real life is a half-hearted Sex and the City remake set in an enormous, open-air branch of Anthropologie." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016)

"Mountains May Depart offers a more ambitious and correspondingly messier treatment of those themes -- but its generation-spanning story has serious power, and, in its masterful opening chapter and final sequence, brushes against greatness." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Deadpool (2016)

"This isn't the future of superhero movies, but it's an enjoyably obnoxious detour." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Goosebumps (2015)

"This adaptation of R.L. Stine's million-selling series of horror novels for younger readers comes within a hair's breadth of Lego Movie-level ingenious, and occasionally touches Gremlins-level sinister into the bargain." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Dirty Grandpa (2016)

"This is the most engaged De Niro performance in at least five years: his dialogue is both apocalyptically unfunny and clearly enunciated, which somehow makes it all the more galling." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

Dad's Army (2016)

"I left the cinema convinced it could work - but whatever it was I'd just seen hadn't." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Jan 28, 2016

The Big Short (2015)

"It wants you to leave the cinema not just fired up, but clued in, and goes to knowingly preposterous lengths to ensure it." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)

3/5 87%

The Peanuts Movie (2015)

"For the most part, the film just seems to waft along, and though Charlie Brown's life is low-key by nature, the stories are mostly flimsily low-impact." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Dec 17, 2015
5/5 75%

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"The Hateful Eight is a parlour-room epic, an entire nation in a single room, a film steeped in its own filminess but at the same time vital, riveting and real. Only Tarantino can do this, and he's done it again." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
Posted Dec 16, 2015
5/5 92%

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"The new heroes of The Force Awakens are brightly drawn, occasionally surprising, and an endless pleasure to spend time with." ‐Daily Telegraph (UK)
