Phoenix

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

The Witch

7

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

8

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

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

They Have Escaped

7

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

Poster for Silent Heart

Silent Heart

Succeeds as an emotionally compelling argument for euthanasia.

Poster for Blowfly Park

Blowfly Park

6

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

Serves as a potent tribute of her towering talent...

Pixar’s most intellectual and yet most viscerally moving feature to date.

A very pleasant surprise – smart, witty, uproariously entertaining and not to be missed.

Poster for Top Five

Top Five

8

The film’s main flaw would perhaps be its arguably clichéd ending, but the many humourous moments more than compensate...

Poster for Diplomacy

Diplomacy

8

Refreshing for taking focus on a single incident and taking a more intimate approach to depicting WWII.

Poster for American Sniper

American Sniper

6

Whilst featuring a gripping central performance and moments of anxious tension throughout, is not quite as complex or impactful as it sets out to be.

Poster for Birdman

Birdman

10

A highly accomplished film on all levels. It is, quite simply, superb.

Poster for Carol

Carol

9

A compelling portrait of youth and experience, of repression and desire, and of two women hindered but not paralysed by the social taboos of their time.

2015.01.11

2015

Poster for The Revenant

The Revenant

9

Darkly brooding and strikingly beautiful, and it succeeds as both a thrilling, revenge story and an ode to the wilderness.

2015.01.05

2015

Poster for Die Hard

Die Hard

10

An action-packed antidote to the seemingly endless stream of vanilla Christmas films...

Poster for Maps to the Stars

Maps to the Stars

7

More like a collection of unsettling vignettes that do not really connect coherently together.

A slow, sluggish build, requiring a focus that will test patience and concentration.

Poster for Son of a Gun

Son of a Gun

6

The film ends up being a little underwhelming, and one is left with the impression that it could have been so much more.

Poster for Obvious Child

Obvious Child

9

Slate is so effortlessly charismatic and relatable in her layered, textured performance that you can’t help but sympathize with her.

Poster for The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner

5

Only a lingering feeling of dissatisfaction is left behind, one that does not look likely to be appeased by the film’s open ending and inevitable sequel.

Poster for The Immigrant

The Immigrant

Rests on Cotillard, who grounds the film with an intense central performance...
