    It’s one of the most insightful films ever made about the British class system.

    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.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Tom Huddleston
    At once an investigation, a polemic and, in its final sequences, a tribute to human endurance. A remarkable film.
    • 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.

    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    A title like that needs balls of brass to back it up. Luckily, this fiery college comedy from feature-debuting writer-director Justin Simien, loosely inspired by a series of scandalous black-face parties at all-white fraternities, is full of punchy intelligence and barely concealed anger.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Focusing on the personalities rather than the historical context, directors Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville illustrate how both men’s lives were changed by the debates, and how neither could let it go even decades later. The result is perhaps better suited to TV than the big screen, but it’s a timely, thoughtful piece of work.

    Abrahamson has pulled off something quietly remarkable: a study of morality which never feels like a treatise, a bracingly realistic film about teenagers which never becomes patronising and a gripping melodrama which swerves sentiment. He may also have unearthed a genuine star.
    • 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.

    Berberian Sound Studio is like nothing before – and whether or not it ‘works’ seems almost irrelevant. In this era of cookie-cutter cinema, Strickland’s deeply personal moral and stylistic vision deserves the highest praise.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This is a film built on sensation, misdirection and randomness. The result can be maddeningly obtuse, but it’s also breathtakingly lovely and genuinely unsettling.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This is a tighter, smarter film than either Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, and buried beneath all the blue-goo aliens and terrible punning is a heartfelt meditation on the perils and pleasures of nostalgia.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    With gorgeously crisp photography and pitch-perfect performances from the two leads, this is one of the most intriguing and thoughtful American films of the year.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    This is a woman who has been through hell and come out kicking, and the result is as much a celebration of her life as it is a documentary.
    • 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
    Scorsese never digs too deeply under the skin of these reprehensible playboy douchebags, and there are times where the swooping photography, smash-and-grab editing and toe-tapping soundtrack conspire to almost – almost – make us like them. But when the film’s cylinders are firing, it’s impossible not to be dragged along.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    The result is entertaining and insightful, balancing cold statistics with real-life stories of success and tragedy, presenting a broad, clear-eyed view of an increasingly complex issue.

    The LEGO Movie is sheer joy: the script is witty, the satire surprisingly pointed and the animation tactile and imaginative.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    It’s infuriatingly irresistible.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    A startling examination of how artistic principles translate into real-world actions, and a moving portrait of a genuinely, unexpectedly brave man.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    We Are the Best! is a joyous celebration of youth, friendship and rebellion, and if there’s a nagging note of regret and bitterness it never manages to undermine the overwhelmingly compassionate tone.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Any film that teams up gruffer-than-thou icons Shepard and Johnson is bound to go heavy on the testosterone, but Mickle undercuts all this strident manliness with a rich vein of self-mocking wit and paternal angst.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Tom Huddleston
    Role Models isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel, just polish it up a little. What emerges is a memorable slice of modern slapstick, with charm to spare and just a touch of soul.
