With the great chemistry and solid foundations Wannell has built with his three key characters, hopefully we will see them continue to grace our screens like a paranormal Scooby Doo trio. Review

Within the panoramic landscape is a story just as exquisite and unforgiving as the environment it’s been captured within. Review

With the fat trimmed and condensed down there is a good sixty minutes of psychological thriller in this mismatched two hour mosaic. Review

Blue is a dry documentary alternating between emotional and cerebral. It may not be entirely entertaining, but it’s incredibly poignant. Review

Instead of the risqué arty film it strives to be, we end up with a disjointed tangram of ideas and scenes. An interesting idea is spoiled by a script lacking creative ambition. Review

The film has an agenda, but by pursuing it with all the cards on the table and plenty of humour this is a film anyone can enjoy. Review

The film starts strong and the tension and chemistry between Claflin and Weisz is the perfect balance of forbidden love, misguided youth and unrequited romance. Review

If you’re expecting complex feminist narrative and a subtext subverting patriarchy, look elsewhere. If you want a charismatic kick ass femme, this is for you... Review
