Tapping into universal vulnerability by way of an entertaining tale of friendship and foolishness, Thomas Vinterberg serves up a Danish delight in generous double measures. Review

Disturbing, fearless, and with just the right amount of weird, In the Earth is a slaughter to the senses and one of Ben Wheatley’s very best. Review

An excellent entry into the beat-em-up genre with smarts behind every brutal blow, Nobody announces its director Ilya Naishuller as a somebody. Review

As Fred delves deeper into the mystery, the film becomes increasingly jarring, using gaudy neon imagery to distract from its lack of ideas, and it refuses to join together any of the dots. Review

Taking a refreshingly neoteric look at fluorescent adolescence, Eoin Macken’s Here Are the Young Men is a vibrant entry into the partyboy sub-genre and has just enough substance to back up its style. Review

Shedding cinematic light on a compelling true story, Silk Road is an entertaining piece of work, elevated by Nick Robinson’s brilliant portrayal of ‘the first millennial gangster’. Review

This is a perfect embodiment to his down-to-earth mentality, and Jason Ferguson delivers a compelling portrait of his grounded nature. Review

The perilously violent combat sequences are very well executed and there are some blows dealt that’ll make your eyes water, but the film is let down by a formulaic story and primitive script. Review

Capturing law enforcement problems within a microcosm of Scandi-terror, Shorta is an arresting, and totally gripping piece of work by Hviid and Ølholm. Review

Films don’t come much more personal than this for a filmmaker, and Chung has crafted a simple yet sublime picture with Minari. Yeun and Ye-ri give excellent performances... Review

Handing the material carefully and sensitively, Harry Macqueen’s understated direction and two excellent leading turns make this a challenging yet hugely rewarding portrayal of love through adversity. Review

Possessor is a visceral bloodbath of a thriller with scenes of perilous ultraviolence that’ll make you wince in the moment, but keep you thinking about them for days. Review

Artistic licence leads director Decker down a crooked path and, as a result, Shirley is a beguiling if brazenly perplexing experience. A twisted gothic jigsaw puzzle of a movie where none of the pieces quite fit together, but worth watching for the central madcap turn from Elisabeth Moss. Review

It’s a classic love story of passion, perseverance, and sacrifice, told through the macabre lens of a mystery horror movie, marking a bloody good debut from director Jennifer Sheridan. Review

Ambitiously complex yet contrived and a little too clinical in its delivery, time-rewind thriller Tenet is an impressive, entertaining blockbuster that doesn’t always know if it’s coming or going. Review

I Used to Go Here is a lightweight but enjoyable watch that poses a smart social commentary on not settling down in your thirties. Kris Rey’s writing is smart and incisive and is enhanced by Gillian Jacob’s engaging central performance. Review

It’s wild and rebellious and has a remarkable sense of hope as well as heartache, and the theatre material is elevated on the big screen by terrifically moving performances, a sublime soundtrack, and an exciting artistic flair. Review

Clarke Duke’s first foray into filmmaking has resulted in a slacker comedy which masquerades as a gangster flick. Moving at the pace of a Southern drawl, Arkansas is casually entertaining and worth a watch if only for Vince Vaughn’s compelling performance. Review

Tackling hard-hitting themes, the emotion in this piece is just as, if not, more integral to the film’s success than the humour, and The King of Staten Island might just be his most accomplished film to date. Review

Within the saturated war movie sub-genre, Jakubowicz succeeds in bringing a unique and inspiring tale of courage and bravery to the big screen. However, this depiction struggles to handle the various moving parts of the story effectively, lacking the nuance and skill that Marcel Marceau went onto become so well known for. Review

Fanny Lye Deliver’d makes for challenging yet utterly compelling viewing, like Haneke’s Funny Games reimagined in 17th century England. Clay does so much with so little, turning period drama into period trauma with a folk-horror twist. Review
