Woman at War

7

Wilfully wacky Icelandic comedy about radical environmental activist waging a war against the local aluminium factory has some delightful moments.

Austrian drama about female sailor confronted with a wrecked boat full of perishing refugees raises urgent and pertinent moral questions.

Ultimately, JT LeRoy is a finely acted and crafted study of the relationship between artistry and identity.

Poster for Knife+Heart

Knife+Heart

8

Giallo-inspired and brazenly gay serial murder story from France features a magnetic Vanessa Paradis in the lead and an electrifying music score.

Poster for Red Joan

Red Joan

7

It’s rather formulaic and conventional, an average spy drama doused in saccharine and filled with two half-baked romances. On the other hand, Red Joan contains a very urgent message that world peace must prevail above national allegiances, and that nationalism can be an arrogant and exclusionary notion.

No Box for Me: An Intersex Story

6

This 59-minute documentary is informative enough for those (like myself) who are little familiar into the world of intersex. A good starting point.

Poster for Sunburn

Sunburn

7

It’s effective and riveting enough to keep you hooked until the end. The performances are convincing, too. The script, however, insistently delves into petit bourgeois afflictions, and some people might find it a little pedantic. I still enjoyed it, though.

Poster for 3 Faces

3 Faces

7

3 Faces returns to the old tradition of Iranian cinema of the 1990s, in its narrative/formal wizardry. It’s meditative, lyrical and cryptic, a lot like The Taste of Cherry.

Poster for We the Animals

We the Animals

8

We The Animals is a gentle yet harrowing tale about a premature coming-of-age in a fractured home, mainly seen from the perspective of the child. It’s very honest and brutal, without slipping into cliches.

Poster for Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure

Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure

5

All in all, Water Makes Us Wet is still refreshing enough to watch. Just don’t expect too much depth.

Poster for Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story

Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story

6

Being Frank: the Chris Sievey Story is interesting enough for nostalgic fans, but it’s unlikely to convert any new admirers.

Poster for Breaking Habits

Breaking Habits

Breaking Habits is a auspicious documentary about a singular initiative combining religion, business and medicine.

Poster for Birds of Passage

Birds of Passage

7

The director and crew behind the Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent have created yet another cinematographically accomplished movie.

Poster for Donbass

Donbass

7

Sergei Loznitsa's twisted and grotesque allegory of the ongoing War in Donbass has good moments but lacks the lyrical genius of his previous works.

Poster for Pond Life

Pond Life

10

A small mining village is teeming with teenage hormones, Summer dreams and real-life deceptions, in profoundly sensitive and moving drama by first-time director.

Poster for Your Turn

Your Turn

Brazilian students protest and occupy hundreds of schools, demanding better public education and the end of austerity measures, in fascinating documentary about grassroots empowerment.

Maggie Gyllenhaal delivers auspicious performance and shines, despite playing a mostly disjointed character in awkward film about a small child poet.

Poster for Hannah

Hannah

A profoundly moving Charlotte Rampling stars in bleak and brutally honest character examination set in Belgium.

Poster for Wall

Wall

The images are raw and bleak with the very occasional splash of colouring – much like the existence of the Palestinians.

Ridley Scott's classic is one of the most subversive films ever made for more reasons than one...

Ugly problems surface when dysfunctional family goes on holidays in dejected seaside town, in British dirty gem starring Sadie Frost and Billie Piper.

Eerie sci-fi travels to a near-future and uncovers a Brazil intoxicated with bizarre evangelical practices.

The sensibility and the inventiveness of Brazilian director Marcelo Gomes are extraordinary.

Poster for The Stone Speakers

The Stone Speakers

7

A stern and yet ingenious documentary. The camera is entirely static, allowing viewers to reflect upon the topics at length. And the interview style is entirely unique.
