4/5 Maine "The fact that the audience is thrown into Maine with little set-up or exposition is somehow gripping, making the audience grateful for any small nugget of dialogue ..."

4/5 Free Solo "A mountain's mass and a man's resolve become symbiotically overpowering."

1.5/4 The Mule "The storytelling - and Eastwood's own mulish, nostalgic longing for an America of, by and for guys who look like Clint Eastwood - turns terrific raw material into what feels like one fib, duck and dodge after another."

4/5 The Image Book (Le livre d'image) "The Image Book presents a damning judgement of cinema's complicity in Western history whilst itself bolstering the canon of cinema that seeks to be radical and revolutionary. "

4/10 Green Book "If you go to the movies and you want a pat on the head, this is going to be your movie."

3.5/4 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ""Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" occasionally feels overly antic, but that's because it's brimming with imagination and energy."

3/4 Mortal Engines "An elaborate adventure-epic with a fresh new cast and an appealing steampunk style."

3/4 Bathtubs Over Broadway "The deeper layers delve into the limitations of irony, and how a jaded, ironic point of view can turn into its opposite, an earnest ingenuousness."

2/4 Vox Lux "After a point, we're left wondering whether we're watching a character study or caricature. Either way, the portrait gradually morphs from intriguing to tedious."

3/4 Ben is Back "It's a worthy night at the movies, but you need the stomach for it."

4/4 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse "A pop-art roller coaster ride with soul, it can dazzle even a sick-of-superheroes doubter with two hours of thoroughgoing delight. Take the kids. Better yet, take the kid in yourself."

C Mortal Engines "This is a headache-inducing spectacle that raises more questions than it answers, and does little to inspire viewers to go find the answers themselves."

The Mule "Plays less like the clever action film it is than like a personal work-a movie of self-retrospection with a resonant, romantic air of regret."

4/5 Nae Pasaran "Nae Pasaran has a profound emotional core."

4/5 Peterloo "Peterloo feels a little too much like an agenda is being pushed, but this is nevertheless a powerful, pertinent piece of work."

3/5 Lizzie "The element of horror is treated circumspectly, almost dispassionately, as if to douse its mythic element in as much cold reality as possible."

Bird Box "Much of the characterization found in this movie from the Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier... is severely undercooked."

Dead Souls "Even the modest settings - a floral cushion here, a scattered piece of clothing or unmade bed there - give us a sense of the texture of these lives."

4/5 Free Solo "I spent most of this film with my jaw on the floor."

5/5 The Mule "The retro pandering of The Mule is so clunky it's poignant."

Little White Lies

3.5/5 Keanu "A funny and endearing tale about Keanu the gangster cat, or as I like to call him the bogeyman. I mean the cat they send to kill the bogeyman. The action is a perfect parody of a Wick-ian ballet with soaring music and slo-mo backflips against pillars."

5/5 Mary Poppins Returns "A warm, funny and cuddly family movie that's truly for everyone, and is a definite must-see for the Christmas season."

4/5 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse "[Makes] a strong case that animation is the natural medium for the comic book movie."

2/5 The Mule "I know Clint Eastwood still loves cranking out movies, but if he doesn't have a hit soon, well Bradley Cooper should whip out his guitar and croon that it's time to let the old ways die. "

3/4 Widows "[A] cerebral popcorn flick with an inherent cunning messaging about shifty womanhood pushed to the legal limit, Widows is dashing entertainment. The incomparable Viola Davis is its strong, shining centerpiece "
