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. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

Shining a spotlight on another little-known, yet hugely influential story, Steve McQueen excels in putting social realism on the screen with style and vigour. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

A mixed-bag of movie that can’t, but also doesn’t really want to, escape the past. Recensie

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. Recensie

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. Recensie

Enemy Lines can be rather clumsy as it trudges through the minefield of war film clichés, but Banke’s astute direction cashes in on the breath-taking snowscape locations it unfolds upon, and he plays to his strengths in constructing energetic action sequences. Recensie

Ema has a vivid experimental style whilst dealing with sexually explicit and often harrowing subject matter, and Pablo Larraín expresses versatility as a director to handle the tonal shifts of a complex story. Recensie

Jane’s strenuous bad day at the office might be a mere footnote within the overarching story of workplace toxicity, but Kitty Green tells it with chilling intimacy and well-crafted conviction. Recensie

Gavron controls the chaos masterfully in a warm tale of friendship where, as the title sequence puts it, ‘real queens fix each other’s crowns’. Recensie

Like Ben’s on-stage shtick, Standing Up, Falling Down doesn’t quite hit the comic beats necessary to make it a rousing success. It’s a perfectly fine routine but lacks an impactful punchline. Recensie

Parasite is packed full of shocks, suspense, and wickedly dark humour, but the storytelling is perfectly streamlined by Bong Joon-ho. Rich in subtext and astute in its razor-sharp microcosmic study of class divide, it’s a compelling cinematic experience from start to finish. Recensie
