T-Meter Title | Year
89% Waves (2019) [Shults's] camera expresses the internal worlds of its subjects with such intimacy you almost forget it's even there - until you are hit with yet another glorious, breathtaking shot. - TheWrap EDIT

82% The Aeronauts (2019) It is an interesting exercise, however, to leave all that good chemistry hanging literally in midair. - TheWrap EDIT

91% The Two Popes (2019) What makes "The Two Popes" so delightful, other than the very funny script, is watching two seasoned actors play off each other for two hours. Both Hopkins and Pryce illustrate what the craft of acting is really about. - TheWrap EDIT

62% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) "Motherless Brooklyn" takes its time getting to where it's going, and sometimes flies off the rails. But ultimately, it sticks its landing... - TheWrap EDIT

98% Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" is that rare movie you never want to end, a film about broken people, loners who hover on the fringes, who scavenge what's left of the important stuff that more socially competent humans leave behind. - TheWrap EDIT

80% Boy Erased (2018) "Boy Erased" is a good movie and also an important one, one that might save lives if enough young people find their way to it. - TheWrap EDIT

59% The Front Runner (2018) It doesn't tell us how we should feel or pretend to know all the answers. For some, that might be frustrating, but "The Front Runner" delivers more than enough provocative material to make it a wild, occasionally hopeful, often depressing ride. - TheWrap EDIT

74% Destroyer (2018) Kidman herself, clearly one of the finest actors of her generation, or anyone else's. Kidman has fully absorbed Erin inside her, as there doesn't seem to be a point where the character ends and the actress begins. - TheWrap EDIT

93% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) True, she is an anchor for him - a savior - but Spacek finds depth in the performance that doesn't seem to be in the script. It is in her eyes, twinkling with the wisdom of a lifetime on screen and off. - TheWrap EDIT

71% Hostiles (2018) This latest incarnation of the great American Western finds its truth in the tangled roots of our own mythmaking. - TheWrap EDIT

85% Darkest Hour (2017) It feels alive and fresh -- the kind of cinema that doesn't waste a second. - TheWrap EDIT

83% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) This is a breathtaking film for those who still believe in the power of imagination, who haven't given all of it over to artists who do the work for you. - TheWrap EDIT

73% Suffragette (2015) The supporting cast, including Helena Bonham Carter, Romola Garai and Anne-Marie Duff, are all top notch, and a reminder of how few films like this exist anywhere. - TheWrap EDIT

73% Louder Than Bombs (2016) There isn't a single scene that falls flat or feels false. - TheWrap EDIT

72% Youth (2015) Every shot is a thing of beauty. For most of this film I had the impulse to hoist my camera and take a snapshot of it. It is just one dizzying image after another. - TheWrap EDIT

86% Steve Jobs (2015) It's a high wire act that might leave some feeling left behind. Somehow, though, Boyle pulls it off not by backing off the speechifying but by leaning into it and allowing it to sing. - TheWrap EDIT

97% Mr. Turner (2014) As is usual with any Mike Leigh film -- a style unique and trademarked by now -- his ensemble is a collection of remarkably adept actors who know their characters so well they could stay in character for weeks, continually improvising, as they often do. - TheWrap EDIT

87% Borgman (2014) In an era where there are very few truly surprising films, Borgman is one of the rare movies that manages to find something entirely new to say, with original, oddly drawn characters. - TheWrap EDIT

4/4 85% The Other Conquest (2007) Along the lines of Spielberg's Schindler's List -- at once moving and painful to watch. - Santa Monica Mirror EDIT
