Poster for The Report

The Report

7

Cinematographically, this is a very conventional mixture of political thriller and courtroom drama. It feels soporifically long at 118 minutes.

Absurdist comedy mocks suburban life in the US, and the outcome is mostly cringeworthy.

Tales from the Lodge

2

British blend of black comedy and slasher with flavours of other horror subgenres is both unsavoury and indigestible.

Horrifying family secrets surface after two adult twins rummage the secret rooms in their house that their late mother kept locked away, in this shocking British documentary.

Meeting Gorbachev

Herzog’s admiration for the octogenarian is very real and palpable, making this an unusually and unabashedly romanticised film.

Spanish film about pyromaniac released from jail offers a fascinating view into peasant life in the region of Galicia, as well as a breathtaking immersion into the power of fire.

Very much worth sticking until the very last minute.

Poster for Répertoire des villes disparues

Répertoire des villes disparues

8

All in all, this is an elegant and moving ghost story, even if a little lethargic at times. The images of the equally dismal dead and living inhabitants of Irénée-les-Neiges will stay with you for some time.

Mother finds strength in her baby daughter in order to resist the oppressive Assad regime, in this punch-in-the-stomach war documentary.

Poster for Hail Satan?

Hail Satan?

8

All in all, Hail Satan is devilishly fun documentary to watch. Ironically, it’s also a feel-good movie. It’s not anti-Christian. Instead, it challenges the autocracy of government of religion. Simply dirtylicious. Go see it!

Gaza is a collage of beautiful lives against a very ugly backdrop.

It’s a finely accomplished piece of filmcraft, bathetic beats bearing becomingly between the various edits.

Tender, intimate and respectful of his subjects.

Poster for The Current War

The Current War

3

American historical drama details the fight between electricity giants Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla in the late 19th century, but the outcome is neither bright nor electrifying.

Poster for Blinded by the Light

Blinded by the Light

7

Blinded by the Light is a squeaky clean, highly sanitised movie. This is a easily digestible and earnest movie with its heart at the right place, plus a a clearcut message of tolerance, diversity and racial reconciliation.

Poster for Phoenix

Phoenix

This is an effective drama with elements of kitchen sink realism and coming-of-age tale.

Poster for The Biggest Little Farm

The Biggest Little Farm

6

This American doc – which follows the couple for eight years – is extremely well crafted. It’s evident that the director/subject had extensive experience with the movie camera.

Poster for The Flood

The Flood

6

While very audacious in its message of solidarity in a world increasingly xenophobic and intolerant, The Flood is very conservative in its format. The narrative is formulaic and sanatised.

Young couple grapples with IVF while attempting to keep the spark in their relationship alive, in this heartfelt yet emotionally draining British drama.

In a nutshell, this is an entertaining yet partial and timid biopic of a man bigger than any football team in which he played.

Crack addicts dwelling in a semi-open rehab in Sao Paulo grapple with recovery, in this moving yet harrowing documentary.

Poster for Mother

Mother

8

The fifth documentary by 40-year-old Belgian documentarist Kristof Bilsen is a tribute to kindness and solidarity, and also a painful register of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s on the patients and their families.

A Dog Called Money

6

Watch A Dog Called Money for the music and the images, just don’t attempt to squeeze a lot of sense out of it.

Poster for The Edge of Democracy

The Edge of Democracy

10

Highly personal Brazilian doc about the recent collapse of democratic institutions in the Latin American nation is a sobering and painful reminder that the individual and the political establishment are inextricable.
