2/5 22% Girl Most Likely (2013) Falls flat on almost all counts, its one saving grace being Wiig herself -- an actress who appreciates the beauty of subtlety, and just about saves her latest movie from complete disaster. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 65% My Father and the Man in Black (2013) The strengths of this documentary lie in the story itself, and it's clear that Holiff is a natural storyteller. He is not an engaging narrator however, and his delivery is often monotone and expressionless. - CineVue EDIT

1/5 49% Hit & Run (2012) Unfortunately for writer, co-director and lead actor Dax Shepard, his attempt of writing a comedic script is an absolute car crash, as he substitutes genuine comedy with cheap, offensive gags. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 38% Comes A Bright Day (2012) A cool, witty and very watchable British heist film. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 100% Dear Mandela (2012) The subject matter is very sensitively handled by filmmakers Dara Kell and Christopher Nizza, who choose their subjects wisely and don't sentimentalise the situation. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 86% How To Re-establish A Vodka Empire (2011) Guaranteed to induce the warm afterglow of vodka and the sporadic giggles that follow. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 56% Broken Lines (2008) Broken Lines is flawed but affecting, and despite its occasional slips into melodrama, Bettany consistently resets the tone, making the film worth seeing for his performance alone. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 97% Tomboy (2011) Should make people sit up and pay attention, not only due to Sciamma's naturalistic script and instinctive directing, but also the remarkable ensemble of young talent that she has consolidated into one film. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 84% Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec) (2010) So good-natured that whether the audience are smiling delightedly or groaning inwardly, all will be enjoying its visual beauty and plucky spirit. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 70% Oranges And Sunshine (2011) Despite the difficulties the team faced when filming on opposite sides of the world, Oranges and Sunshine beats with one heart and develops its story coherently. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 63% West Is West (2011) Khan-Din and DeEmmony don't seem to have gelled harmoniously on this project, as its message and its motives feel confused. - CineVue EDIT

5/5 80% Catfish (2010) Catfish is a rare gem of a film, a documentary with lasting implications. Watch it, feel it, then just try and see if you can forget it. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 96% Mother (Madeo) (2010) Subtle, beautiful and intelligently subversive. - CineVue EDIT
