With Us, Peele has created a perfect companion piece that nevertheless feels totally distinct from his feature debut.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Marielle Heller’s direction is sharp and sympathetic, allowing us to feel innate sympathy for Lee even at her least likeable.

Green Book

The film is nothing if not expertly made; a big, handsome, empty Cadillac, well-upholstered but lacking much behind the engine.

Alita: Battle Angel

High concept sci-fi, streamlined world-building, and heart – Alita: Battle Angel is refreshingly not machine engineered.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

7

Cluttered and frenetic, it seems like the sort of filmmaking of which Marie Kondo would not approve, but there’s little here that’s not at least designed to bring joy.

Poster for If Beale Street Could Talk

If Beale Street Could Talk

9

Though the themes it conveys are deeply engrained, Beale Street feels a lighter proposition than its predecessor; perhaps due to its looser, more literary style.

Happy Death Day 2U

Might not have scaled the box-office heights of its predecessor, but, still, the best thing about time loops if you have plenty of chances to get it right; especially when you’re working on a Blumhouse budget.

Poster for Cold Pursuit

Cold Pursuit

5

Irreverent but not insincere, and blackly, bleakly, bloodily comic, Cold Pursuit seems blithely unconcerned about finding an audience; content to do it is own things, or at least In Order Of Disappearance‘s own thing, as made more palatable to the audience by its leading man.

The Endless

8

A complex and ambitious indie sci-fi that makes a strength of its evidently low budget.

Alex Garland is one of the relatively few directors working today who truly deserves to be called a visionary.

Lynne Ramsay’s latest is Taken for the arthouse crowd.

Plot twists are as fresh as the recycled air the crew inhale.

Isn’t a story worth the telling.

Poster for The Mercy

The Mercy

6

Lives up to its title; finding a sort of sad, redemptive grace in Crowhurst’s fate; even if the film as a whole is never quite prepared to cut its lifeline.

Den of Thieves

A film so derivative it would be simpler to list the ways in which it fails at being Heat.

Phantom Thread

A meticulous study in mastery and the submission.

Poster for The Commuter

The Commuter

6

With its old-school charm and vein of commentary about the financial crisis and its impact on the commuting class it’s just about worth a cinema trip.

Poster for Winchester

Winchester

4

There are a couple of decent, if foreseeable, twists but Winchester crucially overlooks the innate real-life weirdness of its setting and the opportunities that offers.

Aardman Animations’ latest sends comedy back to the Stone Age… but not in the way you might hope.

There is a great drama to be made about Sir Winston Churchill; This, despite its technical expertise and a few key performances, isn’t it.

As expertly-made Oscar bait, it certainly had me hooked.

A harsh, occasionally nightmarish descent into poverty and criminality...

Undoubtedly a grand production, but lacks the elegant simplicity to be a truly first-class entertainment.
