The Damned United

Sheen has portrayed real life British figures who achieved popularity and notoriety in the respective industries of politics, broadcasting and sports. This is his best performance yet.

Shall We Kiss?

This is repetitive and subdued, but those looking for a little less fluff in their romantic comedies would be well to do by renting this French export.

Reviews

Downhill Racer

A visually stunning sports movie that tweaks the formula just enough to make a personal, thoughtful film without refuting genre expectation.

Reviews

Sugar

Melancholic and pragmatic, Sugar is not a rousing Saturday night sports movie, but rather an intelligent and stirring representation of real life.

Reviews

Husbands

There’s much to appreciate here, but nothing that isn’t found in Cassavetes’ other films, which don’t have this level of self-involvement and incoherence.

The Hit

This opens as a full-on gritty gangster film, but radically shifts gears to become a psychedelic head trip about questioning self-identity.

Reviews

Last Chance Harvey

Seemingly designed for in-flight viewing, this film is the equivalent of a competently written paperback, or a leftover helping of Ma’s comfort food.

Changeling

There’s a touch of Arthur Miller in the way the audiences emotions are played in this story of challenging authority.
