Poster for Dunkirk

Dunkirk

8.0

2017, Drama, Action, History, Suspense, War

I didn’t learn anything historically fascinating, I didn’t find myself emotionally engaged with any plot or characters, but I fully experienced this film.

Poster for Trespass Against Us

Trespass Against Us

4.0

2017, Drama, Crime

Can’t live by its performances alone.

Poster for Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming

Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming

6.0

2016, Animation, Drama

Its visual and poetic beauty, transcend the medium.

Poster for Sleeping Giant

Sleeping Giant

8.0

2015, Adventure, Drama

A brilliant breakout for Cividino.

2017.06.18

Poster for Weirdos

Weirdos

6.0

2016, Drama

While these quirks give Weirdos its own voice, it still neatly fits within a genre; typified and defined by it.

2017.06.17

Poster for Patriots Day

Patriots Day

7.0

2016, Drama, Suspense, Crime

Truly glorifies Boston and its resilient people who came together when faced with unthinkable hardship.

2017.06.16

Poster for Crown Heights

Crown Heights

6.0

2017, Drama

An emotional watch and a story that must be told.

2017.06.03

Poster for A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story

9.0

2017, Fantasy, Drama, Love

I felt joy, sadness and a sense of wonderment, a truly unique and beautiful film!

Poster for Marjorie Prime

Marjorie Prime

4.0

2017, Drama, Science fiction

Great ideas and a wonderful cast, with a standout performance from Lois Smith, sadly isn’t enough to keep this film in its prime.

2017.06.01

Poster for The Big Sick

The Big Sick

8.0

2017, Drama, Comedy, Love

While the ensemble cast brings a lot to the table, it is still Kumail Nanjiani’s movie through and through.

2017.06.01

Poster for The Incredible Jessica James

The Incredible Jessica James

5.0

2017, Comedy, Love

Disappointingly lacklustre.

2017.06.01

Poster for Miss Sloane

Miss Sloane

6.0

2016, Drama, Suspense

Cold, dry and hugely conversational, Miss Sloane is an entertaining film to watch, but lacks the powerful emotion and humanity to make this a truly great film.

2017.05.08

Poster for Frank & Lola

Frank & Lola

8.0

2016, Drama, Mystery, Love

Has the soul of a film noir and the heart of a love story. It is an alluring film that is infinitely heightened by two excellent lead performances.

2017.04.10

Poster for Antibirth

Antibirth

4.0

2016, Horror

A gross out B-Movie horror that could be grosser and either more humorous or more scary to reach its full potential...

2017.03.27

Poster for Aquarius

Aquarius

8.0

2016, Drama

A character and social study rather than a plot-driven movie, yet still one with a lot of emotional impact simmering underneath its slow-paced facade.

2017.03.23

Poster for The Lost City of Z

The Lost City of Z

6.0

2017, Adventure, Drama, Action, History

Lacking momentum and aural-visual sheen, The Lost City of Z has the feel of an old classic, but fails to find its Z.

2017.03.20

Poster for T2 Trainspotting

T2 Trainspotting

8.0

2017, Drama, Crime

Has moved on from its iconic story from two decades past, much as we too have moved on.

2017.03.16

Poster for Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper

4.0

2016, Drama, Suspense, Mystery

While there are many interesting ideas, none of them are seen through to a satisfying conclusion.

2017.03.14

Poster for The Fits

The Fits

6.0

2016, Drama

Lacking subtlety, this allegorical film tells the tale of female coming-of age in an abstract, genre-bending fashion.

2017.03.13

Poster for Certain Women

Certain Women

7.0

2016, Drama

Captures what it is to be a woman in the American Northwest, striving to define oneself against societal conventions.

2017.03.05

Poster for War Dogs

War Dogs

6.0

2016, Drama, Comedy, Crime

Between Hill’s hilariously absurd characterization of Efraim and the light tone, this film is actually rather fun to watch.

2016.12.26

Poster for Silence

Silence

4.0

2016, Drama, History

There is so much potential that it’s almost painful how it misses the mark.
