    It is an interesting work, delicately and discreetly animated, with a quiet visual coup in its final moments.

    Sands is still an opaque figure by the end of this film. We have his sombre writings and journals but, interestingly, there are hardly any clear photographs, and we learn little about him as a human being.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s more silly than funny, and audiences can be forgiven for wondering if an actor of restricted growth should have been cast.

    This Swallows and Amazons is decent enough: but probably best savoured on the small screen after tea on a rainy Sunday.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s a clotted and delirious film, with flashes of preposterous, operatic silliness. But it doesn’t have much room to breathe; there are some dull bits, and Leto’s Joker suffers in comparison with the late Heath Ledger.

    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    A toxic cloud of anger, suspicion and sadness hangs over this documentary.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    The Snowden/social media plotline of this film does a bit to make Bourne more relevant. But the ingredients are basically the same.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    The lack of development in the supporting cast is a problem. Nothing, or almost nothing, of any consequence happens to these people. The title is a bit misleading: there is no real communal plot development.

    London Road was a mighty success on stage. Now it is a unique triumph on the movie screen.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    It is well acted, well shot, earnest and high-minded in its eroticism, but with a certain Mills-and-Boony-swoony-ness that creates something unsubversive in the love affair itself.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Peter Bradshaw
    This plumply preposterous film from director Mika Kaurismäki (brother of Aki) is an unconvincing and solemn account of the controversially mannish Queen Kristina and her secret sapphic yearnings in 17th-century Sweden.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s flawed by a slightly unconvincing and anticlimactic gun-related ending, but well acted, forthright and confident in the universe it creates.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Peter Bradshaw
    This could provide some small-screen entertainment for bored kids on a rainy day. But really: enough.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    [A] richly enjoyable documentary tribute.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    This new movie could arguably have given Elba more to do, earlier in the picture, but it is the inter-relationship of the Enterprise’s crew which is the real source of drama. An entertaining adventure.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    This is a derivative movie, whose comic entanglements are perhaps there to provide an alibi for the obvious plot implausibilities - but it’s well made, great looking, and nicely acted.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s not ground-breaking, but there are laughs, and it is a good audience movie.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    [A] terrifically stylish work.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s a winning and likable film.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s a one-note drama of simmering resentment. That note is sustained with impressive conviction.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    Reasonably good fun.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    Joyless and tedious, a reboot quite without the first film’s audacity and fun... It’s a movie that is going through the intergalactic motions.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    For me, King Jack relies too much on violence for its dramatic voltage, but it’s a well-acted movie with heart – and it doesn’t outstay its welcome.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Peter Bradshaw
    Léa Seydoux, in all her haughty and sullen sexiness, dominates this well-crafted piece of suspenseful if curiously pointless hokum from French director Benoît Jacquot; it leads its audience up an elegantly tended garden path to nowhere in particular.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    The President is a striking movie - and a bold and challenging change of directorial pace from Mohsen Makhmalbaf.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    A deafening explosion of energy, gruesome violence and chaos.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    The Ones Below is an intimately disturbing nightmare of the upper middle classes, with tinges of melodrama and staginess, entirely appropriate for its air of suppressed psychosis.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    Zero Days is an intriguing, disturbing watch.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Peter Bradshaw
    Graduation is an intricate, deeply intelligent film, and a bleak picture of a state of national depression in Romania, where the 90s generation hoped they would have a chance to start again. There are superb performances from Titien and Dragus.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Peter Bradshaw
    It’s terrifically watchable, a high-octane automobile of a film with dodgy steering, but exciting in a world of dull and prissy hybrids.
