Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 74% Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008) It's all very sweet and there's no mistaking how the film's going to end. But it's also smart, funny and further proof of Michael Cera's comic talent.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 86% Lorna's Silence (2008) Possibly the beginning of a new direction for the brothers, The Silence Of Lorna gathers force slowly and deliberately, yet lacks the intimacy of the directors' earlier films.‐ Film4

3/5 67% Never Apologize: A Personal Visit With Lindsay Anderson (2007) For anyone interested in the life and work of Lindsay Anderson, however, and indeed the British New Wave more generally, Never Apologize is an illuminating piece of film.‐ Film4

3/5 70% The Wackness (2008) An amiable but essentially empty film made enjoyable by a decent soundtrack, funny dialogue and Ben Kingsley's mad doctor.‐ Film4

3/5 86% Mongol (2008) A beautiful and ambitious film flawed by its dogged determination to cast Genghis Khan in a new light, the best that can be hoped is that Mongol provides a stage for better things in the forthcoming films.‐ Film4

3/5 76% Private Property (Nue propriete) (2007) Ingeniously uncomfortable but occasionally too opaque, Private Property is a darkly inventive family drama.‐ Film4

3/5 84% Out of the Blue (Aramoana) (2007) A strong drama clearly dedicated to exploring its real life events, if not hugely memorable in its own right.‐ Film4

2/5 79% Black Water (2008) Well acted and all the more engaging for having been based on a true story, ultimately Black Water lacks teeth.‐ Film4

2/5 39% The Killing of John Lennon (2006) Tense until the murder, but Piddington assumes we all care as much about Chapman as he does.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 67% Anna M. (2007) With a strong performance from Isabelle Carré, Anna M. is an entertaining film, but it is also confused and slight, and like its anti-heroine, is in need of a firmer grip on reality.‐ Film4

79% A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash (2007) Simple message is powerful and compelling.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 97% Once (2007) A rare innocence and a fresh approach to filmmaking make this a thoroughly charming and unconventional love story.‐ Film4

3/5 94% The Singer (Quand j'etais chanteur) (2006) An interesting and unusual love story.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 81% Yella (2008) A rich, inventive and atmospheric thriller that is somehow able to reveal the final twist while retaining its mysterious allure.‐ Film4

3/5 85% Le Serpent (The Snake) (2006) A penchant for silliness and a tabloid-ready storyline mean The Serpent is a decent thriller that loses some of its impact as it unfolds, but remains a well-paced and enjoyable film.‐ Film4

2/5 50% Someone Else (2006) A muzak rendition of Take That's 'Back For Good' plays over the montage that ends the film. It seems a fittingly empty conclusion to a story that never really engages with its audience.‐ Film4

79% Ghosts of Cité Soleil (2006) Goes beyond front-line journalism to show the men behind the guns.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 73% Golden Door (Nuovomondo) (2007) A wonderfully poetic film offering a fresh perspective on America's early immigrants, Golden Door is as affecting as it is innovative‐ Film4

3/5 83% Taking Liberties (2007) We are the checks and balances on government, and while a slightly more restrained, finessed film may have carried that message more effectively, Taking Liberties will inspire many viewers to reconsider their responsibilities and those of their government‐ Film4
