Movie of the week: To the Wonder

It’s a fascinating, flawed and vivid piece of work, in some ways a coda or companion piece to "The Tree of Life".

Movie of the week: I’m So Excited

Pedro Almodóvar’s new film is a cheeky comedy about stressy homosexuals in an aeroplane going round and round in the sky without getting anywhere.

Movie of the week: Star Trek into Darkness

JJ Abrams’ new Star Trek installment is as glitzy as his first, but it’s Benedict Cumberbatch as a mysterious new foe that fuels this outing.

Movie of the week: Shadow Dancer

James Marsh’s movie is calm, level, downbeat. The tension is subtle — perhaps subtler than it really should be.

Movie of the week: This is 40

The ingredients are in place for a very enjoyable, smart, fluent comedy with wittily managed moments of sadness and bittersweet regret.

Not the movie of the week: Trance

Danny Boyle's 'Trance' is frankly a disappointment: a strident, chaotic, frantically overcooked film.

Movie of the week: Zero Dark Thirty

This is an effective thriller, uninterested in anyone other than the home team.

American movie of the week: Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln's second term has been brought to the screen by Steven Spielberg as a fascinatingly theatrical contest of rhetoric and strategy.

Movie of the week: Argo

'Argo', Ben Affleck's new movie as a director, is an amazing real-life caper straight out of 'Ripley's Believe It or Not!'

Musical of the week: Les Miserables

The film conquers its audience with weapons all its own: not passion so much as passionate sincerity; not power so much as overwhelming force.

Movie of the week: Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino's brilliant and brutal revenge western is a wildly exciting return to form and a thrilling adventure in genre and style.

A big year for film buffs

With new offerings from Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Neill Blomkamp and Steve McQueen, 2013 is set for big screen success.
