The Town (2010)
Affleck knows that a large chunk of romance leavens any tough thriller but also that the best thrillers have pace and a real sense of atmosphere.

The Leopard (1963)
The film is one of the most sumptuous ever made in Europe.

It's impossible not to like this small-budget road movie...

Sebastian Silva's film is very finely decorated by Catalina Saavedra's loyal but self-destructive servant.

Grown Ups (2010)
Despite some passable gags and a whole posse of middle-aged funnymen, Denis Dugan's comedy is about the least grown-up movie you could see.

3/5
Readers of the books will surely be still delighted with Rapace's intense performance and those not familiar with them should enjoy an above-average thriller.

A cherishable experience, with some lovely mood music, virtually no dialogue and a sense of past animated glories that keeps its undoubted whimsy afloat.

Marmaduke (2010)
Spectacularly sentimental, full of ridiculous computer-animated action, and makes sure its animals are a good deal less pallid than the humans on view.

What we get is pure, unadulterated B-movie stuff, with an A-budget.

The non-stop action almost drowns out what might have been a decent screenplay...

If The Refuge doesn't amount to coruscating drama, it works its way under the skin simply by maintaining a complete sympathy with its characters.

Undertow (2010)
Fuentes-Leon takes no sides. Instead he carefully explains the dilemma facing the three principal characters without any false dramatics.

This is not one of Oliveira's most memorable works but it still provides a lesson in unobtrusive but pointed film-making.

Winds its way towards its conclusion with scant imagination, except in a purely technical sense.

The film has a ripe, grown-up eroticism as rich as the sumptuous costumes and sets.

Lymelife (2008)
There's nothing remotely original about Derick Martini's saga of American suburban life in the late Seventies. It has all been done before - but Martini's first feature is so sharply written and well acted that it appears fresh as a daisy.

It isn't surprising that Hollywood is thinking about an American remake of Pascal Chaumeil's smash hit French rom-com. It looks like an American film already, smart and sassy but without much depth.

This is no orthodox piece of cinema. It is, however, a memorable one with a superb performance from Huppert at its centre.

Killers (2010)
The whole film is scripted like it didn't matter, and directed in a similar fashion.

Perhaps this is no more than a diversion from the man who made Hiroshima Mon Amour, Muriel and Last Year in Marienbad. But Wild Grass does show us a director as adventurous as ever as he nears 90.

H2Oil (2009)
It never distinguishes between its moving human stories and a general eco-activism, which does nothing much to sharpen their individual cases.

The British film wasn't much better. But, beleive me, it was easier to watch than this loud mess.

4.3.2.1 (2010)
Like most of those movies that purport to tell it like it is for the fashionably chic young, the result is as cheesy and sentimental as it pretends to be streetwise.
