    At once an investigation, a polemic and, in its final sequences, a tribute to human endurance. A remarkable film.

    What 12 Years a Slave is really interested in is creating an honest, believable experience: in culture and context, place and people, soil and skin. The result can, at times, be alienating.
    • 99 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    It’s the most haunted and dreamlike of all American films, a gothic backwoods ramble with the Devil at its heels.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    It’s impossible adequately to describe the haunting intensity of It Follows: this is a film that makes a virtue of silence, that lives in the shadowy spaces between the splattery kill scenes that punctuate your average stalk-and-slasher.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    Jennifer Peedom’s film is stunningly photographed (how could it not be?) and brilliantly sly: she gives the tour guides and their rich, self-absorbed charges just enough rope to hang themselves, and they duly oblige. But it’s also a heartfelt tribute to the resilience of a people.

    Best of all is Steven Spielberg’s direction: the camera moves like a predatory animal, gliding eerily across the surface of the vast Atlantic, creating sequences of almost unbearable suspense.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    It’s one of the most insightful films ever made about the British class system.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    This is quite simply one of the saddest movies ever made, a tale of loss, grief and absolute loneliness, an unflinching stare into the darkest moral abyss.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    [A] calm, reflective, gorgeously uneventful slice of nostalgic romance.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Tom Huddleston
    The word "personal" is bandied around a lot in film reviews, but it’s hard to think of a work that better fits the description than avant-garde icon Chantal Akerman’s intimate swansong No Home Movie.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    It may lack its predecessor’s lofty ambitions, but once the bullets, spears and hairy fists start flying you’ll be too wrapped up to care.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Overall this is a terrifically watchable, heartfelt documentary and a valuable glimpse into a singular life.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Overall this is giddy, ridiculous fun, a witty, wacky and wonderfully generous sugary gift of a film.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    These young women have already witnessed enough horror to last a lifetime, and in this unforgiving society their lot seems unlikely to improve. A grim but necessary watch.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    The overall impression is one of unbridled enthusiasm on the part of the film’s makers, both for its predecessors and for the brave new universe Abrams and his crew are exploring.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Low key and occasionally frustrating it may be, but Computer Chess is a supremely intelligent, beautifully constructed film, interweaving comedy and character, satire and subtext, and loaded with more ideas than some filmmakers manage in a lifetime.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    A nagging sense of incompleteness means that Civil War isn’t quite as satisfying as the first ‘Avengers’ (it’s all building up to the ‘Infinity War’ two-parter in 2018). But overall, this is Marvel at their best: a pacey, intelligent super-sized blockbuster and a roaringly fun night out.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Director Athina Rachel Tsangari keeps things brisk, maintaining an almost nature-doc distance from her subjects. Her affection for them is plain, but that doesn’t mean she lets them off the hook.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Director Alexandra-Therese Keining clearly loves the book and tries to squeeze a little too much of it into her overcrowded film. But it is visually lovely – the transformation scenes are magical – and the young cast are terrific.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Director Amber Fares strikes a perfect balance, telling a righteous, uplifting story of triumph against the odds without ever losing sight of the bigger political picture.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    An enormously satisfying film: carefully observed and consistently compelling, it feels like an instant American classic, if a minor one.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This isn’t just the best-looking film of the year, it’s one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema. So it’s a shame that – as is so often the case with groundbreaking effects movies – the emotional content can’t quite match up to the visual.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    In the closing act, the film sharpens and becomes something far more compelling.
