The camera work under Lee’s supervision is excellent, and you’ll feel enlivened by the vibrant energy of these quirky pop/rock songs arranged with tribal rhythms, funky chords, and powerful lyrics. Review

Protracted and unpolished, this post-war treasure-hunt film is somewhat repetitive in some of the ideas, and it could have been even worse if it wasn’t for Lindo's strong performance. Review

Besides offering life lessons and providing tremendous fun with unceremonious sophistication, Pinocchio also benefits from an incredible mise en scène, a well-versed costume design and an inviting photography. Review

Aiming for higher narrative stakes, the film rushes a few scenes and fades away nearly as fast for an undistinguished conclusion. Review

More eye-catching than cerebral, this feel-good fantasy, conceived and co-written by Brian Duffiels, provides an amusing session. Review

The splendorous decors and an adequate performance by Kristin Scott Thomas as the villainous housekeeper - in opposition to the unconvincing acting of Lily James and Armie Hammer as the newly married de Winters - are the best this romantic psychological thriller has to offer. Review

From my perspective, the film tried in vain to push the limits of its poker-faced way and failed in its most riotous moments. It doesn’t really get better as it advances but rather maintains the off-kilter procedures. Review

Isolation, estrangement, dishonesty and deception, all shape a family-decaying story mounted with stark realism. It’s a shame that Durkin opted for the easiest conclusion, but the film remains valid. Both the pop/rock soundtrack and the film score are great. Review

Delivered with a bourgeois, Woody Allen-esque vibe, the film is somewhat formulaic and undistinguished, with Murray’s amusing scenes being a poor trade-off for the inert course of events. Review

The non-elaborate scenarios and relaxed posture generate a likable indie flavor but the film would have drawn more attention if the director Oz Rodriguez, who co-wrote it with Blaise Hemingway, had put a fresh perspective on the pop, urban vampirism. Review

Although delivered with fortitude, steadfastness and passion, the film fails to maintain the promptitude in showing a troubled, flawed legal system. Review

Quite a few startles may catch you off-guard, but I found the isolation and emotional detachment to be more disturbing than the horror scenes. Hence, social commentary goes hand-in-glove with spectral abomination here. Review

’s true that the storytelling is never muddled, but it’s too cold, bleak and tedious in its cinematic vistas. Review

The film is often messy in its ludicrousness, but a trip worth taking, considering the delicate situations that Cohen and Bakalova put themselves in. Review

An expedite pace, strong production values, easy humor, candid romance, and a pertinent subtopic involving women’s rights are all motives to see Harry Bradbeer’s first non-TV movie. Review

Despite strong and able, Julia is about to break down with embarrassment and disappointment, and the taciturn drama poignantly expresses the miserable work environment that many people experience but haven’t the courage to denounce. Review
