9.0

2016, Drama, Suspense, Science fiction, Mystery

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

Ricki and the Flash

6.0

James White

6.0

2015, Drama

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

2015, Horror, Action

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

Even though the film relies comfortably on standard crime thriller conventions, it has enough conviction to make it compelling.

They Have Escaped

7.0

2014, Drama

Strangely engrossing, at times confusing and even confronting, but it has a dreamy vision that makes it worthwhile.

Succeeds as an emotionally compelling argument for euthanasia.

2015.07.31

Poster for Blowfly Park

Blowfly Park

6.0

2014, Drama, Suspense

Has several well-executed features, but overall its premise is a little too slight to be thoroughly impactful...
