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.

Die Hard

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

Maps to the Stars

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

Winter Sleep

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

2014

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.

2014

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

7

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

Two Days, One Night

8

This latest addition to the Dardennes’ filmography only affirms their unparalleled skill in tracking the plights of ordinary people.

2014.09.08

Poster for Concrete Night

Concrete Night

7

It may not have the most engaging plot, but it is a slow, steady build that is pervaded with a harsh, fleeting beauty.

Poster for The Selfish Giant

The Selfish Giant

9

A highly accomplished film, and one that deserves to be seen.

2014.07.31

2014

A Most Wanted Man

8

A highly competent thriller, one that features assured direction and fine performances to explore the morally muddled terrain of espionage.

Poster for The Rover

The Rover

7

Worthwhile for its duet of fine performances and the chance to see a Michod refine his emerging directorial style.

2014.06.12

2014

The Broken Circle Breakdown

8

A touching, honest look at one couple’s relationship, and all the struggles and hopes that come with it.

2014.05.14

2014

Poster for Transcendence

Transcendence

6

Ultimately becomes unravelled by progressively bewildering turns in its plot, which dilute its ideas and reduce their potency.

2014.04.24

2014

Poster for Only Lovers Left Alive

Only Lovers Left Alive

8

May not be the most exciting vampire film, but it is certainly distinct in its style and perspective, and ultimately a welcome addition to the genre.

2014.04.15

2014

Poster for Divergent

Divergent

6

A somewhat thrilling but unextraordinary start to the franchise.

2014.04.08

2014

Mommy

9

The screenplay crackles and pops with a kinetic momentum that is almost mesmerising.

2014.04.07

2014

Any Day Now

7

Touching, poignant and thought-provoking, and ultimately it calls for understanding as opposed to blind, crippling narrow-mindedness.

2014.04.06

2014

The Raid 2

8

A strong, progressive directorial effort from Evans, and it succeeds as both an inexorably violent action film and a solidly executed criminal drama.

2014.03.27

2014

In a World...

8

Well-worth the look...

2014.03.09
