The Queen of Spades (1949)

"The Queen of Spades is a treasured relic of a time when the British cinema momentarily abandoned its good manners and revelled gloriously in visual and emotional excess." ‐ The Arts Desk

Casablanca (1942)

"There are some of the very finest character actors that Warner Brothers could muster and a rich, detailed screenplay studded with an indecent number of sparklingly quotable lines. It is a movie to play again, and again." ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

About a Boy (2002)

"Grant, seeming to get better the further he's allowed to extend his range, delivers a terrific central performance, as acerbic but more complex than his sexy snake in Bridget Jones." ‐ Screen International

Immortals (2011)

"With its clashing Titans, gorgeous costumes and toned bodies, Immortals has something for all, though its main appeal may be to those who enjoy slo-mo exploding heads in 3D." ‐ Boston Phoenix

The Skin I Live In (2011)

"It's a pleasure to see the director back with his male muse, the star of his radical early films, for the first time in more than 20 years." ‐ Boston Phoenix

The Simpsons Movie (2007)

"The overall momentum flags at times and, even though the film runs for a crisp 87 minutes, it feels over-extended." ‐ Daily Telegraph (UK)

The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002)

"In his early forties, the star seems to be struggling for scripts to fit his mercurial bad-boy talent, and this very expensive space comedy won't do his seesaw career any favours." ‐ London Evening Standard
