Poster for Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider

2018, Adventure, Fantasy, Action

All over the place.

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.

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 Mountains May Depart

Mountains May Depart

8.0

2015, Drama, Love

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

A sweet, but forgettable movie.

Poster for Nico, 1988

Nico, 1988

6.0

The film is likely best left to fans of the singer and Dyrholm herself.

Poster for The Florida Project

The Florida Project

10

2017, Drama

A wonderful poignant film about the social divide and the triumph of the human spirit. It is a must-see!

2017.10.13

Poster for The Lovers

Watching Mary and Michael journey into old familiar territory is an insightful and genuine delight.

2017.10.13

Zombies have no bite in this socially aware, yet shallow horror.

Poster for The Party

The Party

6.0

2017, Drama, Comedy

There is nothing profound or meaningful, merely a good amount of entertaining theatrics in just over an hour!

2017.10.09

Poster for Blade of the Immortal

Blade of the Immortal

8.0

2017, Drama, Action

A visual feast of a hyperreal samurai film, Blade of the Immortal is enthralling.

The devotion of these activists to their cause is truly where the heartbeat of this film lies.

Poster for Last Flag Flying

Last Flag Flying

5.0

Has good intentions, a good cast, but never manages to be anything more than merely ‘good’.

2017.10.08

Poster for Wonderstruck

Wonderstruck

5.0

2017, Drama

After a while, it’s hard to keep your distance as the visual and aural experience will suck you in. But then sadly, the narrative, or lack thereof, will spit you out.
