6.0

2016, Drama, Suspense

Its apparent desire to both edify and entertain seem to, in the end, work against each other, rendering the film solid but unexceptional.

Poster for Arrival

Arrival

9.0

2016, Drama, Suspense, Science fiction, Mystery

Villeneuve’s most visceral, emotionally moving work, and this grounds its more abstract themes.

2016.02.12

Poster for Ricki and the Flash

Ricki and the Flash

6.0

2015, Drama, Music, Comedy

James White

6.0

Too often its quieter moments feel disconnected or detached from the more viscerally honest scenes...

2015.08.20

Poster for Yakuza Apocalypse

Yakuza Apocalypse

7.0

Beat back any temptation to analyse too deeply, and just allow the waves of hysterical, crazed incoherence to wash over you.

The film firstly succeeds because it manages to make a relatively far-fetched idea plausible.

2015.08.13

Poster for The Witch

The Witch

7.0

2016, Horror, Mystery

Unsettling because it aims not to answer questions or provide explanations, but to impart a lingering feeling of unease that remains unassuaged.

2015.08.13

Poster for Cartel Land

Cartel Land

8.0

2015, Drama, Documentary

A riveting, uncompromising film, one that complicates and undermines simplistic characterisations of the issues it presents.
