40 T5 Deliverance (1972) - Apr 23, 2017
79 T9 Stations of the Cross (2014) - Apr 19, 2017
"An incisive portrayal of the puzzle of religion to the non-believer. Simple faith misunderstands, but creates miracles. The most fervent disciples only find the truth when it is too late. The Church is actually on the margins of the lived religion. Materialist society cannot contain spiritual longing. "
53 T6 American History X (1998) - Apr 12, 2017
"The politics of this film verge on the worthless. The end ruins all the rest of the hard work put in earlier. But my goodness it is a tightly plotted story, in which everything is stitched together to the point that the film unravels if you tamper with its structure. Some great performances, too. "
72 T9 Moonrise Kingdom (2012) - Apr 12, 2017
"Set design and camerawork gave this film a powerful visual appeal, out of the Greenaway School. And Benjamin Britten's Guide to the Orchestra was a treat. But I could have done without the stormy resolution. "
64 T8 Under the Shadow (2016) - Apr 12, 2017
"Intriguing film in the horror genre which also makes some solid political points about the oppression of women. "
23 T2 The Commitments (1991) - Apr 05, 2017
"It has an joyousness that belies the actual situation confronted by its characters, and the neat and tidy ending is accepted with a little too much equanimity to be at all believable."
16 T2 Beauty and the Beast (2017) - Apr 04, 2017
"I fell asleep. "
T1 Heathers (1989) - Mar 26, 2017
"I hated high school and I hated this. "
56 T7 Sing Street (2016) - Mar 25, 2017
"Charming coming-of-age fantasy, set in 1980s Dubliin. The songs seem a little too early for the year of its setting."
66 T8 All Night Long (1962) - Mar 15, 2017
"Moves with captivating rapidity towards a conclusion that seems all too brief and pat. McGoohan's last lines rescue the film from a comprehensive case of Shame About the End Syndrome that afflicts all too many films. "
