"A hero without imperfections can be problematic. But Jackie's nobility is more than well-earned, and tarnishing it for the sake of balance would be churlish. Besides, there's enough evil at loose among the white characters."
The Lunchbox (2014)
Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014)
"If you don't mind being suspended for four hours between the Elsinore maze of von Trier's brain, and the sangfroid submission of a woman's body, there are worse ways to spend a cold Sunday afternoon."
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
The Road (2009)
In Darkness (2012)
Pussy Riot- - A Punk Prayer (2013)
The Right Kind of Wrong (2014)
Machete Kills (2013)
"The meta parody of Machete Kills is a self-congratulating exercise in overkill. Its onslaught of gags try so hard to be outrageous they become banal. It looks like it was way more fun to make than to watch."
Romeo and Juliet (2013)
The Monuments Men (2014)
Devil's Knot (2014)
"It's a rare remake that improves on the original. But the new Footloose does just that. The dancing is better, the drama grittier, the stars sexier -- and the music and the cast are more energetic and diverse."
A Dangerous Method (2011)
"It unfolds as a loquacious essay on the origins of psychoanalysis -- enlivened by some wry repartee from Viggo Mortensen, who steals every scene as Sigmund Freud, and gets more mileage out of a cigar than anyone since Groucho Marx."
Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)
The Kid with a Bike (2012)
We Have a Pope (2012)
A Separation (2011)
"Director Asghar Farhadi torques each twist of the intricate narrative with jewelled precision. Right under the noses of the theocratic regime, he has made a family drama inlaid with a sly critique of Iran's obdurate patriarchy."
This Is Not a Film (2012)
The Snow Walker (2003)
King Arthur (2004)
The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
The Dreamers (2004)
The Passion of the Christ (2004)
"To give Gibson credit, with The Passion he's passionately striving for art, trying to paint the modern equivalent of a Caravaggio canvas on an actor's body. But in a world engulfed by holy war, it's one scary picture."
Festival Express (2003)
The Ladykillers (2004)
