Poster for The Stranglers of Bombay

The Stranglers of Bombay


Unfortunately, it’s significantly less interesting than Blood Island.

The Camp on Blood Island


A gripping and grueling wartime drama graced with a suitably stoic, yet tangibly human lead performance by André Morell.

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout


The best action movie to come out in a long time. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Poster for King of Hearts

King of Hearts


Possesses enough surreal magic to make it well worth a look for any movie buff.

Poster for The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey

The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey


A rich and imaginative work which will delight some but leave others cold.

Poster for Alice Sweet Alice

Alice Sweet Alice


Alice Sweet Alice, despite its flaws, is an intriguing tale of terror for him to leave us alone in the dark with.

Poster for Racer and the Jailbird

Racer and the Jailbird


Just enjoy the acting, the steamy sex scenes, the burst of fast-paced action...

Poster for Allure



While Allure is admirable in its performances and sense of honesty, a few technical and storytelling aspects fail to convince.

Poster for La coda dello scorpione

La coda dello scorpione


Might baffle the hell out of you, it succeeds in being enjoyably glossy Euro-trash.

Poster for The China Syndrome

The China Syndrome


Isn’t quite the masterpiece that its reputation suggests, it still entertains and provokes in equal measure.

Poster for Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters


It is idiosyncratic, it features some individual works which leave more impression than others, but we are still blown away at the end regardless.

Poster for Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl

Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl


The focus on the finer details of the relationship creates a gradual sense of investment which makes the climactic argument all the more shattering.

Poster for Dark River

Dark River


A large dose of artistically-mounted gloom porn rather than the truly explorative piece of work that it might have been.

Poster for Ideal Home

Ideal Home


Rudd and Coogan manage to build up enough goodwill with their double act that its hard to resent the film’s shallow approach to its more serious aspects.

Poster for Winterlong



While there are a few shortcomings in terms of overall storyline construction, the quality of the performances and central character development do much to offset this.

Poster for Solis



The script and performances deepen and broaden the story considerably, lifting what could have been a simple “in the moment” adventure thriller to another level.

Poster for The Devil Outside

The Devil Outside


The dramatic conflict here is so unsubtle and lacking in nuance that it ends up being more hilarious than believable.

Poster for A Punk Daydream

A Punk Daydream


There are a number of particularly startling and moving moments here.

Poster for Anna and the Apocalypse

Anna and the Apocalypse


Ultimately isn’t quite the musical answer to Shaun of the Dead that it should have been. Nonetheless, it’s worth seeing for sheer novelty value alone.

Poster for The Eyes of Orson Welles

The Eyes of Orson Welles


Both authoritative and softly-spoken in that unmistakable Mark Cousins style.

Poster for Swinging Safari

Swinging Safari


If you are fully prepared to take jokes which possess genuine wit while traipsing gleefully into decidedly taboo territory then this will be right up your alley.

Poster for Obey



The raw energy and anger on display will leave the viewer walking out of the cinema suitably shaken by the experience.

Poster for The Parting Glass

The Parting Glass


The characters here come across like how human beings really should.

Poster for Terminal



A film which seems to lack any consistent tone or purpose.
