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.

A goat eats Forest Whitaker's Viagra. Do you really want me to tell you what happens?

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.

It is implacably in favour of women without in any way straining for effect.

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.

Even though the one sustained sequence of violence has already caused controversy, possibly more than it deserves, this Killer is stylish and convincing.

It has a terrible screenplay and you get the feeling that Johnson could be a much better light comedian than this, given a better chance.

[Rec] 2 (2010)
It doesn't match the original ... there is virtually no back story shown and the inhabitants of the block are by now too far gone even to be identified.

Anyone prepared to make a trilogy of films about life as an Arab citizen in Israel deserves praise for audacity.

Peter Mettler, its director, is trying to show how the second largest oil reserve in the world, which emits more CO2 each day than all the vehicles in Canada, has despoiled a track of the boreal forest as big as England.

The film is an honest celebration of an inventive and daring comedian, whose influence was profound.

Jack Cardiff's superb Technicolor cinematography looks as beautiful as Gardner and that's substantially the reason the film has stood the test of time.

The simplicity of the tale is its strength and the acting of Zohar Strauss as Aaron and Ran Danker as Ezri is entirely natural.

The least that can be said for Maoz's film is that it is a tour de force that forcefully expresses what war is like for ordinary grunts who don't want to do anything but get home as quickly as possible.

Stone, who has always expressed surprise that Gekko became a cult hero, here underlines the fact that his creation has the same old instincts.
