Emma Thompson

Under Construction

A note on my notes: I've avoided complicating things with a number or star scale. My "Good" and "Not So Good" ratings simply indicate whether I recommend a film or not, based on my individual tastes in acting, direction, cinematography, etc. My notes explain why. These evaluations are not set in stone. I may change my mind about some of them. But this is what I think as of now.

Because I haven't seen them yet, the following movies aren't on this page:

  • The Tall Guy (1989)
  • Junior (1994)
  • The Winter Guest (1997)
  • Primary Colors (1998)
  • Judas Kiss (1998)
  • Maybe Baby (2000)
