Poster for Downsizing

Downsizing

4

Fundamentally a poorly-constructed film caught somewhere between satire, drama, comedy and fantasy.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

6

Creative liberties aside, Nalluri’s process of interweaving Dickens’ biographical narrative with that of his novella is a well-executed storytelling device.

The end product is as uncomfortable and gruelling as the conditions in which Alex and Ben are subject to.

Battle of the Sexes

6

While none of the film’s subplots are boring, they do leave the audience wandering around without sufficient direction.

A film about empathy and this is what makes it such an accessible and watchable film...

Will leave audiences underwhelmed by its lack of adventure and a screenplay unworthy of Danny Ocean.

War for the Planet of the Apes

Makes for a visually glorious finish, but not necessarily an intellectually satisfying one.

Poster for The Beguiled

The Beguiled

8

Coppola gives us enough time with each character for us to admire the different attributes each bring to the school.

Indeed, the only character who gives this film any real emotion is the soundtrack, which consistently delivers the right song at the right moment.

Poster for Six Months to Salvation

Six Months to Salvation

8

The fact that this narrative unfolds as the film is being made not only makes the story more authentic, but less judgmental.

Poster for Handsome Devil

Handsome Devil

5

Could have been a great film too, were it brave enough to hold a mirror to itself a few more times before hitting cinemas.

Poster for Berlin Syndrome

Berlin Syndrome

7

The experiment is engrossing, and delivers the kind of experience that will keep you grounded for a few minutes after the film’s conclusion...

Poster for Denial

Denial

7

Even though Lipstadt sometimes struggles to influence her own biopic-of-sorts, she is nevertheless the star of the show.

Poster for Bitter Harvest

Bitter Harvest

4

A necessary production, yet it fails to deliver the same punch as similar historic episodes re-told through film.

2017.02.22

2017

Poster for Collateral Beauty

Collateral Beauty

4

Just as its title tries to say too much, so too does the film try to tell too many stories and provoke a few too many tears.

Poster for The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

6

While the interview scenes tell us why music is important, these scenes ultimately give us the most compelling evidence.

Poster for Sausage Party

Sausage Party

5

Peaks when it dabbles in satire.

Poster for Finding Dory

Finding Dory

Takes advantage of its oceanic setting by introducing us to a number of quotable sidekicks.

Now You See Me 2

Lets down its actors and audience with a heist film that tries to be too smart for its own good.

Poster for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

5

An easy, (very) low-brow comedy...

Poster for Zootopia

Zootopia

8

Disney’s most sophisticated and clever animated release in years.

Poster for Brooklyn

Brooklyn

6

For all the brilliant acting and aesthetic fine-tuning though, the story behind Brooklyn is relatively dull.

If you care too much about narrative and originality, it might be worth giving this one a miss.

Poster for He Named Me Malala

He Named Me Malala

7

Paints Malala's story in a respectful light, both figuratively and literally; clever animated artworks of Pakistan help progress the narrative.
