The film has an immediate power no one could deny.

They look as if they could provide more laughs but are defeated by bovine gags retrieved from a trashcan full of out-takes.

The Cove (2009)
One would imagine, and hope, that an Oscar nomination beckons.

Coffin Rock (2009)
Robert Glasson's film is well-shot and directed, and more than decently acted. As a genre movie, it suffices.

2/5
The film can never quite make up its mind whether it's about the circus or the vampires and ends up a mess of its own making.

Triangle (2009)
The whole film is smart cinema. I wouldn't be surprised if Smith didn't land up with a contract in Hollywood.

Park is clearly an exceptional director capable of being weirdly funny, quirkily fantastical, brutal and sexy, sometimes at one and the same time. There's no one quite like him.

Pontypool (2009)
An original take on genre movies of its kind.

1/5
The debutant director is done no favours by a screenplay from Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau which gives him little to play with and them few chances to shine as actors.

Zombieland (2009)
Inspiration is pretty fallow after about half an hour.

Love Happens (2009)
Both stars seem bemused in their parts and it is left to Martin Sheen and a pet parrot to emote. The parrot, in fact, is the best thing here.

Goodbye Solo (2009)
Working to a spare screenplay, Bahrani offers none of the usual clues about either the cabbie's surprising determination to prevent the tragedy or the old man's reasons for suicide. This doesn't always help the quiet drama.

4/5
Like a folk tale crossed with a thriller and road movie. Without a doubt it is one of the best new British films of the year, if you can justly call it fully British.

After watching this, you'll probably end up worrying as much as they do.

3/5
Some British film-makers never give up and Shane Meadows is one of them. He'd make a movie of a custard pie if he could. And generally there's entertainment to be had from even his most hand-to-mouth efforts.

What a comforting fable to warm us as the evenings draw in. Away with cynicism! Enjoy if you can. The cast look as if they did.

It is a tragic story that deserves to be remembered and has rarely been told on film.

Vinyan (2008)
A dark and pessimistic drama which goes slap-happily mad towards the end but keeps you watching all the same.

Scarface (1983)
To call the whole thing visceral is a palpable understatement.
