Land of Mine

2015 | Drama | History | War

Shines a bright light on what has hitherto been a dark secret of Danish history. It is a powerful and important story.

2017.03.29

Embers

7.0

2015 | Drama | Science fiction

It is a deep, thought-provoking film that is light on action but rich in dialogue that explores a taken-for-granted human function.

2017.03.26

A Cure for Wellness

6.0

2017 | Horror | Suspense | Science fiction | Mystery

With a tension curve that never rises, the climax comes out of the same bottom-drawer that most B-grade horror endings are found.

A Street Cat Named Bob

2016 | Drama | Comedy

A feel-good story despite some gritty realism and one that will please enthusiastic cat-lovers everywhere.

2017.03.20

Christine

Rebecca Hall is brilliant as Christine, tip-toeing the fine line between appearance of normality and deep despair.

2017.03.16

Challenging, thought-provoking, and capable of reaching deep inside your soul if only you let it.

Alone in Berlin

8.0

2016 | Drama

A joyless story about humble heroism...

2017.03.09

Jasper Jones

6.0

Despite several charming moments, the film struggles to be more than a moderately engaging montage of life in a dysfunctional Aussie outback town.

An entertaining and engaging comedy-drama...

2017.03.02

A Man Called Ove

8.0

The sheer force of the film lies in a lonely man’s memories expressed through Ove’s wide-eyed face.

2017.02.24

Toni Erdmann

7.0

2016 | Drama | Comedy

It is funny, sincere, definitely original, and too long.

2017.02.22

The Lobster

8.0

2015 | Drama | Comedy | Suspense | Science fiction | Love

Despite its all-star cast, conventional acting criteria seem irrelevant as performances are understated and almost expressionless.

2017.02.19

Patriots Day

7.0

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Crime

A fast-paced gripping drama made more so by the knowledge that the events really happened.

2017.02.15

2016 | Drama

The portrait-like cinematography conveys the bleak landscape and convent solitude with a sympathetic lens that avoids despair.

Fences

9.0

The two stars push their performances to the limit. Their performance duet is a memorable tour-de-force.

2017.02.09

Perfect Strangers

7.0

2016 | Drama | Comedy

The gags and one-liners are fast and cutting to capture the kind of things that friends might think while sober and voice out when not.

2017.02.05

Hidden Figures

8.0

2016 | Drama | History

The acting is outstanding, with a perfect balance between depicting the ugly side of racial oppression and the women’s determination to contribute to aeronautical science.

It is for audiences prepared to confront the dark side of humanity as well as those interested in the intricacies and triumphs of the British legal system.

An engaging, enlightening and worthwhile story about how a Loving couple changed history.

Manchester by the Sea

7.0

2016 | Drama

Brilliant acting by Affleck does not hide the film’s melodramatic predictability.

2017.01.22

Moonlight

9.0

2016 | Drama

It is not about race or sexuality or masculinity, yet it takes us into those spaces to experience the film rather than just watch.

2017.01.19

Jackie

8.0

2016 | Drama | History

It is Portman’s dramatic ability to step into Jackie’s soul and to capture her mental trauma that ultimately shines.

2017.01.17
