De jueves a domingo (Thursday Till Sunday) (2012)

"What distinguishes Castillo's film is the facility and accuracy with which she understands, remembers and recreates the fish-bowl vistas and claustrophobic intimacy of a long car-bound journey." ‐Time Out

Keyhole (2012)

"A bravura journey into a noirish nightmare world and a lock that even paid-up Maddinites won't be able to pick on a single viewing." ‐Little White Lies

The Apartment (1960)

"Directed by Wilder with attention to detail and emotional reticence that belie its inherent darkness and melodramatic core, it's lifted considerably by the performances." ‐Time Out

Drive (2011)

"A more or less conventional Los Angeles-set hot-rod/getaway-driver movie with neo-noir decoration -- albeit satisfying enough on its own terms." ‐Sight and Sound

Post Mortem (2012)

"Larraín's clever use of almost humorously unconventional framings, expressively washed-out colour tones and mysterious low-key performances brings together human comedy and historical tragedy to unique, and surprisingly emotional, effect." ‐Time Out

Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo (2009)

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)

Tamara Drewe (2010)

"The dullness of British mainstream cinema is epitomised by this Stephen Frears -- didn't he used to be an auteur? -- adaptation of Posy Simmonds's gently teasing 2005-2007 Guardian comic strip about rural goings-on." ‐Time Out

Black Dynamite (2009)

London River (2011)

"In the film's latter stages, Blethyn's heart-on-the-sleeve acting style finally combines with the marvellous Kouyaté's watchful intelligence and frail dignity to moving effect." ‐Time Out

The Killer Inside Me (1976)

Remember Me (2010)

"Be warned, if you're vulnerable to outrageous, cringe-inducing implausibilities -- not least the ludicrous stand-up row between Tyler and his father in the latter's Twin Towers boardroom -- you'd best give this one a miss." ‐Time Out

OSS 117: Rio ne répond plus (Lost in Rio) (2010)

44 Inch Chest (2010)

"Aiming for black comedy and a redemptive satire on self-deluding male machismo, ham fisted debut director Malcolm Venville instead gives his cast enough rope to hang themselves rather than the characters they play." ‐Time Out

Hofshat Kaits (My Father My Lord) (2008)

Kærlighed på Film (Just Another Love Story) (2007)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
