    • 100 Anna Smith
    This freshly 4K-ed masterpiece of German Expressionism deserves to be seen on the big screen. Track it down and be rewarded with possibly cinema's first ever twist ending.

    Cute, comical kids help make this ballroom dancing comp-romp a feelgood winner despite inexpert editing.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    The tension dips occasionally but stick with it and you'l be richly rewarded.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    A witty, warm exploration of family life that's conventional and unconventional in equal measure.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Moving, bold, unconventional and impeccably staged, The Arbor is a worthy tribute to a powerfully artistic voice.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Finally, a female ensemble comedy that balances realistic characters with smart laughs and side-splitting farce. Not everything works, but there's more than enough here to keep you chuckling - not to mention baying for a sequel.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    A tough but very rewarding watch.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    This will divide audiences as much as "The Tree Of Life," but it's a brave and beautiful calling card for both filmmaker and star. Drink it up, sit back and think of a very different Australia.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    An insight-filled take on prejudice in post-11/7 London that packs a hefty punch.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Charming, delightful and amusing - just what you'd expect from the star-studded cast of veterans.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Music fans will love this indie documentary. Try to avoid Googling him before you watch, though.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    It's overlong, but with its gorgeous cast, irreverent humour and beautifully drawn characters, this smart comedy-drama is the kind of movie Couples Retreat and Grown Ups should have been. Please, nobody let Adam Sandler anywhere near a remake.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    A voluptuous slice of historical drama that will satisfy period fans and Mikkelsen admirers equally.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    There are undeniable flaws, from cheesy dialogue to neglected subplots. But there’s something so lovable about The Sapphires’ enthusiasm, and powerful about its moments of tenderness.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    The young Aprile is a standout in a moving, hard-hitting and surprising adaptation of the Henry James novel.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Director Stacie Passion doesn't try to ape Buñuel’s surrealist twist on ennui in Belle Du Jour, instead crafting an enthralling, modern tale in which intimacy is a goal rarely achieved.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Despite a few missteps this is a spirited, touching romance and Shailene Woodley’s best performance yet. Divergent fans after a weepie need look no further.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Even with a starry cast, the stirring true story is this drama’s standout feature.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Late director Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter) beautifully captures her personality and her passion for creativity.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    All cast and crew do an impressive job in making this unlikely proposition such an engaging, thought-provoking and darkly funny watch.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    This also marks what may be Allison Janney’s funniest performance to date: her cheerful, outspoken drunk next door is an absolute hoot.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    Bell goes easy on the preaching and heavy on the laughs without losing her feminist message.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Anna Smith
    In its own restrained way, this drama packs an emotional punch.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    Bland, but wholesome.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    While the quirky structure could be taken as a bold move, the story still feels frustratingly incomplete, rendering the preceding hour or so a tantalising glimpse at what could have been.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    There’s little interest in probing characterisation, but the plot progress is steady and the performances likeable.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    This has the power to unite a female audience ready and willing to overlook its supposed weaknesses.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    Illuminating as to the reality of being a victim of crime in a dangerous society but not exactly absorbing entertainment.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    It may not be as daring as Young Adam, but this is a well-performed adaptation of an absorbing melodrama.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Anna Smith
    Predictable and pleasant, with enjoyable performances.
