Poster for In Syria

In Syria


In the throes of this harrowing, devastating scenario, the slightest good-natured and funny circumstance, even very limited in number, is felt as an urgent gratification.

Poster for The 12th Man

The 12th Man


Although competent in terms of storytelling, the most impressive aspect of the film was its visual impact, with some severe scenes causing discomfort.

Poster for Let the Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In


Denis’ most diaphanous work to date is a subtle, powerful, and intelligent look at human relationships and society.

Poster for The Lightest Darkness

The Lightest Darkness


Lacking a proper climax and shattered by plot holes, the film takes us to narrow train hallways and inconsequent therapy sessions, both of which are far from being exciting.

Poster for The Insult

The Insult


While the direction was unexceptional, the credible performances elevated a film trying to justify the acts of its characters through a chain of emotional states...

Poster for Unsane



The whole idea, as an experiment, is interesting, but the film lacks in credibility what it gains in boldness.

Poster for Thoroughbreds



Intersecting the friction of a taut thriller and the biting wit of a dark comedy, Cory Finley proves he has the eye and the talent.

It was the courage of the good characters that made me enjoy this flawed drama film.

Poster for The Valley

The Valley


The dramatic tones feel shallow and uninspired, bringing the type of sentimentality that is more adverse than expedient.

Poster for Middleground



Although well acted, mindful, and visually arresting, the film doesn’t go beyond its hypothetical circumstances.

Poster for The Guardians

The Guardians


A quietly emotional film that comes fortified with engrossing performances, an appropriately moving score...

Poster for Lean on Pete

Lean on Pete


A life lesson that stands above most of the coming-of-age dramas.

Poster for Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2


I found the film more tiresome than entertaining, with the intermittent funny jokes being unable to rescue the film from the visual and verbal exhaustion.

Poster for Disobedience



Initially built with an enthralling tension and clever insight, it suddenly fails to grasp in its flimsy climax.

See You Up There


Despite the conventional storytelling, there’s a lot to like in Dupontel’s best film to date.

Poster for The Great Buddha+

The Great Buddha+


Even with a few uneven episodes, the satire focuses on social class gaps and shapes into an important statement against political corruption and abusive influence in the contemporary Taiwanese society.

Humor and tragedy combine effortlessly in this sensitive, mindful, and stylish look at the roots of a distant African culture and the unjust burdens that mark its society.

Even if excessively sanguinary, it runs at a dazzling pace and boasts impeccably mounted episodes.
