Decent acting and directing carry it through...

Poster for Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

7.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

There is a dark humour in watching these complex characters interact and a sense of futility that reigns throughout.

Poster for Sorry to Bother You

Sorry to Bother You

8.0

2018, Fantasy, Comedy, Science fiction

Sorry to Bother You may shock, may repulse or may go down in history as a major cult classic along the lines of Being John Malkovich.

Poster for Mandy

Mandy

5.0

2018, Horror, Action, Suspense

It’s hardly worth sitting through the rest for the payoff. What this film greatly needs is an edit.

2018.10.11

Poster for Thunder Road

Thunder Road

8.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

Thunder Road will make you laugh, it will make you cry; often at the same time.

2018.10.10

Poster for First Man

First Man

6.0

2018, Drama, History

First Man may land on the moon, but struggles to travel further to satisfyingly explore the first man himself.

2018.10.10

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

10

2018, Drama, Music, Love

Intimate, grand, raw, polished, human and vulnerable; A Star Is Born has given birth to a new voice in cinema. Long live Bradley Cooper, director.

2018.09.28

Poster for The Wife

The Wife

8.0

2018, Drama

As the plot is so predictable, The Wife is best viewed as a character study and commentary on the ingrained misogyny of our society...

2018.09.23

Poster for How to Talk to Girls at Parties

How to Talk to Girls at Parties

6.0

2017, Music, Comedy, Science fiction, Love

Outside of a few funny moments and excellent vocals from Sharp, this film is weak on plot and flat on emotion.

2018.09.02

Poster for Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider

4.0

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

All over the place.

2018.07.24

Poster for You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here

8.0

2017, Drama, Suspense, Crime

The visual stylization of the film creates a somber mood, the abstract editing contributes to the characterization of Phoenix’s troubled soldier. But the true star of this film is Jonny Greenwood’s score.

2018.07.01

Poster for An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

6.0

2018, Comedy

A hilarious yet tiresome absurdist adventure with the best cast I could possibly envision for it.

2018.06.04

Poster for First Reformed

First Reformed

6.0

2018, Drama, Suspense

The film descends into madness with Ethan Hawke’s performance at its core.

2018.06.04

Poster for The Tale

The Tale

10

2018, Drama, Suspense, Mystery

The personal aspect of The Tale, alongside the cleverness of its structure and the fantastic performances, does not make this film any more comfortable to watch.

2018.06.04

Poster for Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace

9.0

2018, Drama

It is in fact this subtlety, through visual metaphor and meaningful scenarios, that makes Leave No Trace such a poignant social commentary.

2018.06.01

Poster for The Miseducation of Cameron Post

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

10

2018, Drama

While the social commentary is plentiful, it is the coming-of-age tale at its core that makes The Miseducation of Cameron Post so wonderful.

2018.06.01

Poster for Yardie

Yardie

6.0

2018, Drama, Crime

In spite of such issues, Yardie still stands on the merit of its content and the representation it gives its subject matter on screen.

2018.06.01

Poster for Never Goin' Back

Never Goin' Back

4.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

The music invigorates some energy into this otherwise flat film; something the directing and lacklustre performances fail to do.

2018.06.01

Poster for Lady Bird

Lady Bird

10

2017, Drama, Comedy

Throughougly developed complex characters, a solid entertaining script, masterful directing, and so much heart.

2018.02.15

Poster for The Mercy

The Mercy

4.0

2018, Adventure, Drama

A performance showcase for Colin Firth, The Mercy offers little else in the way of enjoyment or purpose.

2018.02.07

Poster for 山河故人

山河故人

8.0

2015, Drama, Love

Director Jia Zhangke breaks a lot of new ground with his boundary-pushing storytelling methods.

2017.12.11

Poster for Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

6.0

2017, Drama, Love

A sweet, but forgettable movie.
