My Cousin Rachel

7.0

2017 | Drama | Love

Just classily-mounted pulp. Still, sometimes that’s all you need in life.

2017.07.05

Baby Driver

9.0

2017 | Action | Crime

There’s a real sense of heart and characters we can root for in all of this...

2017.07.04

Wakefield

4.0

2016 | Drama

Unfortunately, the concept doesn’t really successfully sustain itself...

2017.07.02

On the Sly: In Search of the Family Stone

8.0

2017 | Documentary

An ending that’s touchingly surprising, especially considering everything that’s happened up until then.

2017.07.02

Strange Weather

7.0

2016 | Drama

A fine small movie, and one that takes a truly feminine route of emotional catharsis over a past wrong...

2017.07.01

My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea

8.0

2016 | Animation

Provides a unique feel that makes it something rather more than a mere quirky diversion.

2017.06.29

Bad Day for the Cut

6.0

2017 | Suspense

Isn’t anything particularly innovative, but it is still enjoyable in its own dark way.

2017.06.29

Okja

10

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Drama | Science fiction

Has such an endlessly creative sense of fun that it generates a tidal wave of goodwill...

2017.06.29

Animals

7.0

2017 | Drama | Suspense | Mystery

Effortlessly enjoyable if you just go with its distinctive flow and let its dream journal symbolism bury itself into your subconsciousness.

2017.06.28

Vampire Cleanup Department

5.0

2017 | Horror | Action | Comedy

Still fun, albeit more as a semi-romantic comedy vampire homage than a kind of grand martial arts adventure...

2017.06.27

Song to Song

6.0

2017 | Drama | Music | Love

Rambling, disjointed and self-indulgent - albeit largely on purpose.

2017.06.26

Sami Blood

7.0

2017 | Drama

It may not be a film for all tastes, but it can’t be accused of being anything less than interesting.

2017.06.24

In This Corner of the World

8.0

2016 | Animation | Drama

Beautiful, arty and achingly human.

2017.06.23

My Life as a Zucchini

8.0

2016 | Animation | Drama

A beautiful film, maybe a little slight in terms of overall storyline but amply rewarding...

2017.06.17

The Mummy

4.0

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Horror | Action | Suspense

The non-stop mayhem will bore anyone who isn’t an undiscriminating popcorn junkie.

2017.06.16

The Dirty Dozen

6.0

1967 | Adventure | Action | War

An enjoyable if rather dated and overlong mix of war critique and straightforward shoot ‘em up.

2017.06.11

Lifeforce

6.0

1985 | Fantasy | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction

Unfortunately, the script is littered with inconsistencies and bites off a lot more than it can reasonably chew.

2017.06.06

The Other Side of Hope

7.0

2017 | Drama | Comedy

An effective mirror of shame reflected back at Europe’s shameful treatment of unfortunates desperate to escape the horrors of their home countries.

2017.06.03

Wonder Woman

7.0

2017 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action

Does stand out by working some new angles into the currently-oversubscribed superhero movie cycle.

2017.06.02

Harmonium

8.0

2017 | Suspense

As food for thought it’s certainly one of the more rewarding and twist-heavy films out there.

2017.06.01

The Red Turtle

10

2016 | Fantasy | Animation | Drama

By turns charming, melancholic, suspenseful and inspiring, but really something to be experienced subjectively and personally.

2017.05.29

Quadrophenia

8.0

1979 | Drama | Music

The film’s engaging energy along with its empathy for its rather sad main character make it well worth seeing.

2017.05.26

12 Angry Men

10

1957 | Drama

An inspirational and insightful look at the nature of judgement and justice, and an absolute must-see for any film fan.

2017.05.24

Outland

6.0

1981 | Science fiction

Outland is a rather average film, but passes - especially if you are a fan of sci-fi films from this early 1980s period.
