On Chesil Beach

“The most pitiful virgins in movie history since Jason Biggs humped pastry in ‘American Pie.'”


“Fascinating enough to keep our attention on the more historically significant points.”

The Book Thief

“The film builds and then, without warning, deflates in a series of false endings and overly-dramatic beats.”

War Horse

“Cheesy…but no one directs early-20th century battle scenes like director Steven Spielberg.”
