    Every bit as enchanting as you remember. Molto, molto bene.

    Make a date to catch this on the big screen and be rewarded with pure magic.

    The fact that Miyazaki and his team hand-draw the images before they're digitally coloured and animated gives them an artistry that has been woefully lacking from so many recent American features.

    Subtle and unflinching, this is genuine and charming.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Slow-paced and self-indulgent in places but a bravely intense use of camera work to explore the internal psychology of the characters.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Making masterly use of sound and image, this is a desperately sad study of the difficulty people have to communicate and commit in an increasingly insular world.

    It may lack subtlety, but everything is beautifully designed and photographed, Watling and Tosar are superb and it's undeniably great fun.

    Stealing the show is Suzanne Flon's immaculate display as the matriarch whose good-natured indulgence of her ghastly relations belies a guilty secret. Mercilessly acute and quietly devastating.

    This arty approach may dismay hard-core horror fans, but it captures the dark grace of the original with wit and style.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Lovingly photographed in a monochrome that recalls Woody Allen’s Manhattan, this is a slickly scripted rom-com.

    An Oscar nominee at this year's Academy Awards and for good reason, Falardeau's film is moving, smart and sensitive. Terrific stuff, in short.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    A fascinating insight into the disparity between rich and poor, and powerful nations and their less muscle-flexing neighbours. And, unless you're a fish, it's also pretty darn scary.

    This barely conceivable story of neglect and loneliness is given heartbreaking new life by Morley, with Zawe Ashton standing in effectively for the tragic young singer.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Like Spinal Tap's more seriously older brother, Jay Bulger's fond but unsparingly honest film is a treat for fans and music lovers. A juicy slice of rock history.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    The breakneck pace, the seething sense of menace and the unflinching attitude to sex, drugs and violence coagulate into a nastily authentic take on the seediness and venality of modern villainy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Touching and funny. Waters fans should sign up now.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Paced with steady assurance, this gentle bildungsroman is a impressive debut from director Daniel Patrick Carbone.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Patrick Peters
    Intimate, delicate and delightful.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    Castellitto deserves great credit for toning down the melodrama in wife Margaret Mazzantini's novel and producing a very human story about chance, choice and consequence.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    This is a gentle, camp but nonetheless revealing satire on how a nation circumvented the social strictures imposed upon it by Franco's fading fascist regime.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    A splendid performance by Naomi Watts holds together this smart and astutely restrained lampoon of life in the Hollywood basement.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    Abrasive but affecting.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    Strong performances and meticulous direction make this consistently disconcerting, but the subplot distracts from the moving human drama.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    A fond and always accessible portrait, but the lack of objectivity and drooling images of Gehry's work deprives this documentary of any objectivity.

    Shot over three years, this is one of the more considered and insightful Iraqi documentaries - although some may find its stylistic contrasts a little self-conscious and distracting.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    A slyly subversive insight into the role of women in the Israeli military, this is a surprisingly compassionate satire that makes its political points without resorting to caricature.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    Keeping it surreal has never been so nauseating and, at times, hilarious.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    The action meanders occasionally, but the performances are consistently disarming and Luciano Zito and Diego del Piano’s black-and-white photography complements the mood of ironic melancholy.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    Ultimately, this potentially intriguing character thriller loses its direction when it turns into a mean-spirited stalk-and-bash actioner.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Patrick Peters
    The cast are terrific, but byt he end, the film is struggling to stay together as much as the family it depicts.
