3/5 77% F (2010) Grounded by Schofield's central turn, F makes much of its limited resources, locking us into its nocturnal world and throwing away the key. - Time Out EDIT

No Score Yet Pieces of Dreams (1970) [A] soapy melodrama. - Time Out EDIT

95% Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) This classic tale is still beloved today, as its feel-good story about the most famous reindeer of all wins every kid (and, fine, adult) over. - Time Out EDIT

50% Von Richthofen and Brown (1971) Corman's Poe-derived motifs are transposed exuberantly to the skies as WWI biplanes fight it out with romantic heroism. - Time Out EDIT

56% Salome (1923) Despite careful stylisation and exquisite photography, this adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play boasts a healthy streak of vulgarity of which Wilde, one suspects, would have secretly approved. - Time Out EDIT

39% Man on Fire (2004) It ought to be seriously unpalatable stuff, yet there's something so cherishably naff about Scott's jumping-bean cutting and hokey-cokey camerawork that it's almost a guilty pleasure. - Time Out EDIT

8% Jonathan Livingston Seagull (1973) Richard Bach's best-selling parable for freshmen becomes on screen a very spelled-out allegory, complete with flat voice-overs and pretentious Neil Diamond soundtrack. - Time Out EDIT

83% Niagara (1953) Worthseeing for Hathaway's superbly crafted direction, even if it needed a Hitchcock to merge the symbolism of the location (the falls, the belltower) with the themes of sexual domination and envy. - Time Out EDIT

28% Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) This first sequel to Friday the 13th opens with mild panache... The script then jumps five years, assembles a new set of victims at the summer camp, and repeats the gory carnage as before. - Time Out EDIT

70% Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969) Fisher taps a rich vein of Romanticism here, making this the high point of a series that afterwards degenerated into the sloppy self-parody of Jimmy Sangster's The Horror of Frankenstein. - Time Out EDIT

100% Nanook of the North (1922) These characters are plainly 'playing' themselves, and scenes such as the igloo-building manifest a sage grace and skill. - Time Out EDIT

27% Ned Kelly (Ned Kelly, Outlaw) (1970) Richardson's bushranger biopic merely applies a simplistic gloss to the 'outlaw' image already projected onto Jagger... and his role as the legendary Australian anti-hero emerges as little more than an uncomfortable displacement of his tabloid notoriety. - Time Out EDIT

25% Wuthering Heights (1992) A brave stab, but it doesn't always pierce the heart. - Time Out EDIT

84% The Europeans (2019) Staged with affection, insight, a whole fistful of superb performances and exquisite settings. - Time Out EDIT

61% Oliver Twist (2005) It retains the book's emotional punch and darker elements - the spectre of the gallows is a running motif - and presents them in a way likely to engage younger viewers without patronising them. - Time Out EDIT
