Rating Title/Year Author
Hunger (2008) Sarah Manvel It pretends to have an objective point of view, but only grants one group of characters the dignity of individuality. EDIT

Killer of Sheep (1977) Sarah Manvel Killer of Sheep finds the beauty in the relentless ordinariness, making this a remarkable film. EDIT

The Wackness (2008) Sarah Manvel Fortunately Peck's diamond acting pulls the film above its murky setting. It takes some courage to be this vulnerable on screen, and Peck is uncommonly good at it. EDIT

The Class (2008) Sarah Manvel [Cantet] reminds all of us that kids are just kids, and every last one of them deserves a fair chance... The Class and its critical reception, proves the playing field certainly is changing. EDIT

Hunger (2010) Sarah Manvel I am so angry about Hunger. It wants to provoke political debate without providing a context for the political situation it depicts. EDIT

Synecdoche, New York (2008) Sarah Manvel The film very carefully sets up several interesting ideas, but then drops them as too many conflicting ideas become impossible to juggle. EDIT

Black Swan (2010) Sarah Manvel It's trash -- a statement not to be made lightly. EDIT

Brighton Rock (2010) Sarah Manvel If director Rowan Joffe had seized the moment and update the story to the present, it would have been so much more interesting. EDIT

Unknown (2011) Sarah Manvel It's hard to know if the problem lies with the script... or in the editing by Tim Alverson. EDIT
Posted Aug 6, 2018
Broken Lines (2008) Sarah Manvel Broken Lines is a marvellous showcase for Bettany, a useful calling card for Rosa and Fredenburgh, and something for the rest of us to chalk up to experience. EDIT

Knuckle (2011) Sarah Manvel Knuckle doesn't get as near to the heart of Traveller culture as it had the opportunity to. It's a golden opportunity, squandered. EDIT

Carnage (2011) Sarah Manvel Carnage is,... worth seeing for Jodie Foster's first major performance in years. As a woman utterly convinced of her own superiority and righteousness, Foster gives us a very welcome reminder of her talent and her fearlessness. EDIT

C.R.A.Z.Y. (2005) Boyd van Hoeij If Brokeback Mountain was the bleak gay drama of 2005 that all audiences could enjoy, then another 2005 feature, the equally heterosexually enjoyable C.R.A.Z.Y., puts the colour back in the adjective 'gay'. EDIT

Sherrybaby (2006) Boyd van Hoeij SherryBaby is more often concerned with getting everything right the American indie way rather than trying to probe its characters and situations for emotional truths. EDIT
Posted Jul 19, 2006
The Art of Flight (2011) Boyd van Hoeij The image quality sometimes is misty at best but the pay-off of these stories lies in the fact that they would otherwise have probably remained untold. EDIT
Posted Jun 27, 2006
Band of Outsiders (1964) A testament to the vigour and freshness of the conception of director who had the cheek and self-irony to credit himself on this film. EDIT
Posted Jul 25, 2001
A Room for Romeo Brass (1999) Good enough to prove that Shane Meadows is one of the more exciting British talents working today. EDIT
