9/26/2018
More
Britain alone is worthy of a whole chapter in the 2018 Planet Earth Joke Book - but this film seems blissfully unaware of it all, going through the motions as if repeating the same old tired clichés is enough, Dan Slevin writes.

9/19/2018

9/19/2018

9/12/2018

Movie review - Alexander McQueen

9/12/2018
More
The story of unlikely bad boy East End fashion designer Alexander McQueen - aptly titled McQueen - is, like so many documentaries about tortured artists, predictably tragic and sadly unenlightening.

Duration:00:06:32

Movie review - McKellen: Playing the Part

9/12/2018
More
There is no doubt that Sir Ian McKellen is one of the best actors treading the boards, but his work is so good because he has devoted so much of his life to it - leaving little room for an underlying story.

Movie review - Crazy Rich Asians

9/5/2018
More
Review - Hollywood's been trying to tap into the Asian market for years, so I'd have thought a Cinderella story among super-rich Chinese would have been a no-brainer, Simon Morris writes.
