30 Minutes or Less has one of those screenplays that looks goodish on paper but is only a bit above average.

Parker contributes a performance as the flustered but determined Kate Reddy that proves that she can transcend Sex and The City.

4/5
This is an updating in tone rather than time, often without the essential explosiveness of the book. But it's one way of reinterpreting Brontë's words and visually, at least, an extraordinary achievement.

4/5
An effective celebration of Le Carré's artful story-telling, acted by one and all with a quiet panache that strikes home.

Contagion (2011)
Soderbergh, with a budget to roam the world, gives us genuinely creepy moments as information and misinformation spread as fast as the mutating virus itself.

Shame (2011)
McQueen's film-making is undoubtedly powerful and without compromise, especially during the frequent sex scenes, which depict a man on the edge intent on propelling himself over the cliff.

4/5
Cronenberg and his actors do their best to show that there is no such thing as normalcy since Jung, Freud and Spielrein, cannot cure themselves any more than they can guarantee to help their patients.

Self Made (2010)
Has moments when only a curmudgeon would fail to be moved or doubt the sincerity of the film-makers.

The Dead (2011)
Film-makers Howard J Ford and his brother Jonathan have shot the scenery well, but since the undead are everywhere the quest for safety becomes repetitive.

The Hedgehog (2011)
This film's main attraction is the terrific Balasko. She is so watchable that one almost forgets about the awful Paloma and her video camera.

Weekender (2013)
Weekender isn't a very original film but at least the music score sounds authentic and director Karl Golden keeps the pace going.

Desir (2011)
Wiseman spares us nothing and his film looks magnificent, not just because of the dancers but because it is shot so well by him and John Davey.

To direct, write and act in such a film proves Clooney to be a good deal more than the Clark Gable of his generation.

Powder (2011)
One is struck virtually dumb by a screenplay that looks as if written on the back of an envelope.

Amazingly courageous for its day (1949) in combining bad taste with good comedy.

Bier's strength is storytelling and her ability to find actors to do those stories justice.

One doesn't require a Bergman or even a Fellini, it's simply that this film takes every easy way out there is for its laughs.

Rodriguez' first film was the celebrated low-budget El Mariachi. This one, a chaotic mess from start to finish, must be something like his nadir.

Villain is too long, with a propensity for cliché at vital moments, but its best parts are very good and Lee's direction makes the most of them.

If it argues about what it means to be young, Muslim and American, it does so with some tedium at its edges.

Culled from 300 hours of footage, this is a brave and worthy effort, though at times it is difficult to understand what the participants are saying.

If it lacks the freshness of Elite Squad and the brilliance of the documentary Bus 174, it's still tensely made and full of fury at the politicians.

Winsome in the extreme and a bit chauvinist too.

A better film would undoubtedly have been a quieter, more reflective one, less tempted by Grand Guignol. But it is very watchable...

Project Nim (2011)
Marsh, who made the multi-awarded Man on a Wire, takes no sides but lets the humans speak for themselves, rum lot that they are.
