T-Meter Title | Year
87% The Wild Goose Lake (Nan fang che zhan de ju hui) (2019) Diao is a master of both settings and set-pieces. Unfortunately, the characters and plot twists are much less compelling. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

87% The Whistlers (2019) Poromboiu has always been the funniest of the Romanian new wave directors, albeit with a bitter twist and deliberately rough delivery. Here, clearly revelling in the constraints of genre convention, he delivers pure entertainment. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

56% Matthias and Maxime (2019) Xavier Dolan shows a new restraint and romantic tenderness... He breathes fragrant life into a familiar story of unspoken longing. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

90% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) It's a tear-jerker, all right -- but then, it's hard to see how it could remain true to reality and be anything else. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

99% Ash Is Purest White (2019) Through all this, Jia is a keen observer, sympathetic to human passions but never nostalgic; the new China may be cold and acquisitive, but the old ways were rotten too. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

96% Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano) (2019) An explosively imaginative riposte to the macho posturings of Narcos. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

97% Woman at War (Kona fer í stríð) (2019) With this mini-saga about a middle-aged choir mistress with a sideline in eco-terrorism, [Benedikt Erlingsson] has ventured into more traditional storytelling territory but retained a wacky sort of outsider humor. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

92% Nico, 1988 (2018) As a self-obsessed junkie, spectacularly failed mother and demanding diva, there should be nothing sympathetic about her, but Susanna Nicchiarelli's biopic effectively evokes the melancholy of missed greatness. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

99% Shoplifters (Manbiki kazoku) (2018) This is Kore-eda at his most subtle, nuanced and morally inquiring. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

81% Sunset Song (2016) As a saga, the film waxes and wanes, but Davies' feel for the painterly landscape and the exquisite construction of whatever is within his frame never wavers. - The Age (Australia) EDIT
