41% Love (2015) "[Gaspar Noé's] fourth feature, Love, is one in the eye -- often literally -- for those who doubted he could make a work of pure or peaceful intent. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 19, 2015
11% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) "At no point does anyone say, "put down the camera, bro. You're freaking me out." When do they think they're going to watch this stuff back? "Hey, let's crack open a few beers and watch those old tapes of us watching those old tapes." I can't see it. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 12, 2015
84% Steve Jobs (2015) "Sorkin smothers any intrigue or ambiguity and signposts every irony. What he has written is a set of instructions, not a script. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 12, 2015
96% Tangerine (2015) "There is so much vitality and pizzazz, it seems almost by the by to point out that the whole film was shot on an iPhone. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 12, 2015
36% Misery Loves Comedy (2014) "It's a decent enough film for comedy buffs though there aren't a whole lot of surprises. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 11, 2015
99% Brooklyn (2015) "It's the sort of film where apparently minor decisions have changed everything before you know it. A bit like life. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 9, 2015
72% He Named Me Malala (2015) "It's a hagiography. Malala undoubtedly deserves one. Audiences may crave something meatier. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 9, 2015
95% Casino Royale (2006) "A film that strips most of the glamour and escapism from Bond, but remains the truest and toughest instalment yet. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 2, 2015
65% Quantum of Solace (2008) "Shouldn't a Bond film worth the name be simply enjoyable? Even a chase that ends with Bond and his quarry crashing through a glass dome onto a pair of scaffolding towers... induces exhaustion rather than excitement. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 2, 2015
90% Hunger (2009) "The stylistic palette of McQueen's picture, and its grasp of cinematic vocabulary, elevate the film to a purely visceral realm, so that it seems to bypass your eyes and ears and go straight for your nerve endings. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Nov 2, 2015
64% Spectre (2015) "Even fantasy needs verisimilitude, and if you're going to have your hero producing planes out of thin air, miles from any apparent airstrip, as Bond does, why stop there? Surely no need for a plane. Just have him zoom through the air, arms outstretched. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 29, 2015
88% Fresh Dressed (2015) "Unlike the baggy fabrics, the material is stretched a little thin. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 22, 2015
92% The Black Panthers: Vanguard Of The Revolution (2015) "The film doesn't shake our suspicion that the stories being told have calcified into legend. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 22, 2015
72% Suffragette (2015) "What the filmmakers fail to have noticed is that they have made most of the female characters unspeakably tedious, and given all the best moments to the men. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 16, 2015
92% The Lobster "A film set in an alternate reality must take time to establish the rules of its particular fiction, and most of the joys of The Lobster arise from these early scenes. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 15, 2015
89% Catch Me Daddy (2015) "It's advisable to approach the movie without much prior knowledge: the tantalising reveal of connections between the characters is masterfully done. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 8, 2015
82% Results (2015) "Bujalski might never crack Hollywood, but what does it matter? He's defiantly his own man. Results gets results. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 8, 2015
90% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "The picture reminds us... that there are fates worse than death. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 8, 2015
93% The Martian (2015) "All the while, he is keeping a video diary in which he is sassy ("In your face, Neil Armstrong!") as he outlines every step of his plan to make contact with Planet Earth. It's almost as if he knows he's a character in a movie. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 1, 2015
85% The Walk (2015) "The film has more than enough spectacle. Zemeckis, who made Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, is a peerless visual magician, adept at placing the camera in off-kilter places. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Oct 1, 2015
88% Macbeth (2015) "No matter how heightened this Macbeth gets, it always feels lived-in. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Sep 24, 2015
73% Everest (2015) "Lingering between excitement and eulogy, Everest is like an inexperienced climber: eager enough to set out for the peak but caught halfway between success and failure. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Sep 17, 2015
3/5 22% Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015) "While it's tasteful, even unadventurous, Every Thing Will Be Fine isn't too timid to address the restorative effect of trauma on creativity. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 16, 2015
89% Closed Curtain (2014) "Closed Curtain is the most opaque and sombre of the pictures to have emerged so far from Panahi's confinement. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Sep 4, 2015
98% 45 Years (2015) "It is the performances that are the source of the infinite warmth and pain here. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 27, 2015
89% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Early scenes show clearly how NWA's music emerged from the war zone of south central LA in the 1980s. Thereafter, Straight Outta Compton comes straight out of the school of biopic cliché. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 27, 2015
93% Skyfall (2012) "Craig has relaxed into Bond without losing any steeliness. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 21, 2015
85% The Wolfpack (2015) "The brothers have an effortless charisma and any time spent in their company cannot help but be fascinating. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 20, 2015
82% Mistress America (2015) "There's still half a great movie here. Gerwig, a slalom skier among comic actors, is capable of conveying multiple contradictory meanings at once. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 13, 2015
85% Trainwreck (2015) "Where Trainwreck comes unstuck is in its struggle to raise laughs from tactless material. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 13, 2015
87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) "Nolan has become hooked on the grandiose, at times even the biblical. For anyone who admired the witty playfulness of his early films, it's a dark night indeed. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Aug 1, 2015
92% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "No one would expect anything more from a Mission: Impossible movie than thumping good action, and this delivers amply on that front. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 30, 2015
49% Manglehorn (2015) "Rather obvious and sentimental. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 30, 2015
98% Inside Out (2015) "What remains consistent in the film is the level of intellectual and emotional daring, as well as Pixar's ability to convert that into dynamic visual storytelling that will endure long after Joy and Sadness dolls are piled high in landfills. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 23, 2015
86% Inception (2010) "If it's the dreamer whose subconscious fills in the details, as the film claims, why the absence of silliness, sex, horror and general abandon? " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 20, 2015
79% Ant-Man (2015) "Ant-Man is a salvage job but a good one. In common with Guardians of the Galaxy, it exhibits a B-movie nuttiness not permitted in the studio's flagship films: your Iron Man, your Avengers. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 16, 2015
63% Spider-Man 3 (2007) "The breeziness that was so refreshing in the other episodes has been largely replaced by the kind of misery and moping that we can get from any old superhero. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 13, 2015
74% London Road "I can't comment on the transfer of London Road from one medium to another. The film, though, is nothing short of a triumph. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 9, 2015
100% Li'l Quinquin (2015) "The injection of oddball humour does nothing to lessen the seriousness of the subject matter or the compassion with which Dumont regards his characters' hardscrabble lives. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 9, 2015
91% Dear White People (2014) "Dear White People has its share of provocations about race but complex reality has overtaken its vision at a worrying speed. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jul 2, 2015
90% Bridesmaids (2011) "[Wiig's] is the comedy of panic, paranoia, madness and self-loathing, but her trick in the new film Bridesmaids is to remain composed even as her heart is shredded to confetti. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 30, 2015
92% Slow West (2015) "The film is small in scale but filled with resonant ideas and emotions. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 25, 2015
93% The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) "If it feels like a non-stop demolition derby, at least there's a responsible driver at the wheel. The British director Paul Greengrass makes everything seem more plausible with twitchy camerawork and even twitchier editing. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 23, 2015
76% Love at First Fight (2015) "The bright, footloose cinematography keeps our interest piqued by replicating Artaud's sensuous wonder at the world around him. But Les combattants would be half the film it is without the busy-bee score by the electro trio Hit'n'Run. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 18, 2015
95% Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2012) "[Director Mark Hartley] has assembled a lively collection of clips and interviews that gives the Cannon story definition and shape, without stinting on the gratuitous anecdotes. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 11, 2015
97% The Look of Silence (2015) "Just because The Look of Silence is a quiet film, that doesn't mean every corner of it isn't filled with screams. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 11, 2015
71% Jurassic World (2015) ""We want to be thrilled," says a visitor at the start of the film. Hear, hear. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 11, 2015
93% Spy (2015) "Spy is awfully funny, mostly at the expense of its men. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted Jun 4, 2015
99% Timbuktu (2015) "This is a film in which small pieces stand in for a daunting and horrifying whole. " ‐ New Statesman
Posted May 29, 2015
80% The New Girlfriend (2015) "The New Girlfriend is sumptuously shot by Pascal Marti in a blazing autumnal palette that can transform a simple visit to the handbag section of a department store into a feast for the eyes. " ‐ New Statesman
