Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 85% The Transfiguration (2017) The effect is thin; less creative genre-smashing than a drab lack of commitment to either its mumblecore or horror sensibilities.‐ Observer (UK)

4/5 55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) Sloppy, lively and joyfully fast-paced.‐ Observer (UK)

2/5 75% LA 92 (2017) The use of archive without voiceover means there's a flatness to the way the events are presented; LA 92 shows how these events were reported on TV but lacks its own commentary.‐ Observer (UK)

4/5 100% The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki (Hymyilevä mies) (2017) A warm, welcome sideways look at the Finnish featherweight boxing champion Olli Mäki.‐ Observer (UK)

3/5 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Caro floods the film's frames with light, resulting in a film far prettier than expected, but more sanitised too.‐ Observer (UK)

3/5 25% Unforgettable (2017) This is deliberately silly and knowing satire and I hope it becomes a camp classic.‐ Observer (UK)

2/5 94% Neruda (2016) "Love is so short, forgetting is so long," Neruda once wrote. If only this Pablo were that succinct.‐ Observer (UK)

3/5 53% The Boss Baby (2017) The jokes are decidedly one-note, but still, I admit: I laughed.‐ Observer (UK)

2/5 57% Mad to Be Normal (2017) There's plenty of jazzy paisley shirts, flamboyant velvet suits and on-the-nose music cues to denote its psychedelic 1960s setting, but these elements do little to soften Laing's eye-raisingly invasive and possibly inappropriate approach to his patients.‐ Observer (UK)

3/5 50% City of Tiny Lights (2016) Those hungry for original British movies, especially ones that attempt to engage with multicultural London, may find their appetites whetted.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2017
4/5 99% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) Baldwin's words feel as urgent and articulate as ever, though Peck's attempts to link history with present-day race relations feel a little clunky next to the elegance of the text.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2017
4/5 92% A Quiet Passion (2017) Tension is the film's main preoccupation and its most precise profundity: the blunt, exhausting pain of living alone and in one's own head.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2017
2/5 38% Aftermath (2017) Helped along by a gloomy, oppressive score, it neither thoughtfully examines themes of trauma, guilt and grief nor moves with any sort of haste to its eventual, obvious, revenge-thriller conclusion, despite its short 90-minute running time.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2017
4/5 98% The Fits (2016) The storytelling is elegantly economical, characterised by a looseness and a spontaneity that's rooted in authenticity.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
3/5 92% Lost in France (2016) Far more interesting than their personal ruminations are the musicians' reflections on Glasgow as a post-industrial creative hub and their memories of the welfare state that once enabled the scene to thrive.‐ Observer (UK)

4/5 93% Hidden Figures (2017) This splashy, feelgood period piece is every bit as enjoyable as a best picture Oscar-nominated blockbuster could hope to be.‐ Observer (UK)

2/5 84% The Founder (2017) Hancock's bland biopic offers a sanitised and sympathetic take on the burger chain's beginnings and the man who turned it into a multimillion-dollar enterprise.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
2/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) From its swooping, acrobatic camerawork, to the fight scenes unfolding in eye-popping 3D, it's easy to see where the money has been spent.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
4/5 91% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) An adrenaline-pumping blockbuster polished to near perfection, save its sequel-baiting conclusion.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
1/5 20% Love of My Life (2017) Even Chancellor, so brilliant and sharp as Lix Storm in BBC2's newsroom drama The Hour, can't save this undignified affair, gritting her teeth through writer-director Carr-Wiggin's cringeworthy script.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 19, 2017
2/5 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Without Sam Taylor-Johnson at the helm, it lacks the knowing bite of its playful predecessor.‐ Observer (UK)
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2017
96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) As pleasurable a viewing experience as a film about death could hope to be.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2016
73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Nocturnal Animals is a film about lapses - lapses in time, memory and relationships. It's also a film that lapses in quality and consistency of tone.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2016
98% Moonlight (2016) It is thrilling, sensuous stuff.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
67% Free Fire (2017) What might be messy in less capable hands is simply dynamic here. The film's fiery energy is amped up by its suitably warm lensing, all oranges, browns and rusty reds.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
83% A United Kingdom (2017) A high-stakes romantic melodrama of this nature won't be to everyone's tastes -- its 'feelgood' freeze-frame ending is predictably saccharine. Yet, Asante's take on the genre still offers a few subtle twists.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
3/5 100% Couple In A Hole (2015) A hole lot more interesting than it should be.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2016
4/5 88% Still Alice (2015) An absorbing portrait of one woman's interior landscape.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2015
3/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) Redmayne and Jones prove that marriage is just as absorbing (and perplexing) as quantum physics.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2015
77% Beyond Clueless (2014) Lyne has produced a prodigious piece of criticism with Beyond Clueless, a confident crowdfunded archive-essay film.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2014
69% They Came Together (2014) As artificially sweet as one of Molly's lollipops - and about as satisfying one too: They Came Together is a breezy romp through the rom-coms of yesteryear that might just leave you craving the real thing.‐ Film4
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2014
99% Gloria (2014) Equal parts warm and wise, Gloria is an invigorating story of female agency that will have you rooting for its leading lady from start to finish.‐ Film4
