Bailey-Bond’s Censor is a technically accomplished homage to home-video horror with an intriguing performance at its dark heart, but it falls victim to ponderous pacing and a poor execution of plot. Review

A groundbreaking piece of indie cinema from Janicza Bravo that could potentially be a sign of things to come in the connection between social media and film, Zola is a darkly funny, playfully constructed picture. Review

An old-fashioned western but set on an evolving Mars, Settlers makes great use of its sci-fi elements to tell what, in its essence, is a very human tale of endurance through grit and determination. As thought-provoking as it is visually striking, this marks an impressive directorial debut from Wyatt Rockefeller. Review

The Birthday Cake brings nothing new to the table but serves as a sweet homage to the gangster film genre with its generous helpings of cameo performances. Review

Cheap but not so cheerful, Giddy Stratospheres is a plucky vanity project from Laura Jean Marsh that is full of DIY punk spirit, succeeding in entertaining when leaning into its fantastic indie soundtrack. Review

As Fred delves deeper into the mystery, the film becomes increasingly jarring, using gaudy neon imagery to distract from its lack of ideas, and it refuses to join together any of the dots. Review

Taking a refreshingly neoteric look at fluorescent adolescence, Eoin Macken’s Here Are the Young Men is a vibrant entry into the partyboy sub-genre and has just enough substance to back up its style. Review

The perilously violent combat sequences are very well executed and there are some blows dealt that’ll make your eyes water, but the film is let down by a formulaic story and primitive script. Review

Artistic licence leads director Decker down a crooked path and, as a result, Shirley is a beguiling if brazenly perplexing experience. A twisted gothic jigsaw puzzle of a movie where none of the pieces quite fit together, but worth watching for the central madcap turn from Elisabeth Moss. Review
