An intimate examination of a heated subject that should inspire compassion in even the most narrow-minded viewer.
Posted Sep 28, 2020
The Painted Bird (2020)

Katherine Ryan: Glitter Room (2019)
[Glitter room] is a fierce, upfront, uplifting hymn to being an independent woman that makes you want to get out of your seat and whoop. It is also ferociously funny.

The Other Side of the Wind (2018)
It's ironic that The Other Side of the Wind should land now, when Welles is held in the highest esteem. His reputation and stature is such that this film will likely get more sympathy and love today than if it had been released at the time it was shot.

An instant horror classic - and quite possibly the scariest film of the decade.
Posted Jun 14, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
As Han himself might say: 'I have a bad feeling about this'. But any rough edges resulting from the abrupt change of director have been entirely smoothed over.

Bigger, funnier and filthier than the first film, Deadpool 2 doesn't disappoint, delivering a potent cocktail of action and humour.

An expertly crafted British horror anthology that serves up genuine chills.

Lady Bird (2017)
It is both painfully honest and laugh-out-loud funny at the same time.
Posted Feb 15, 2018
Black Panther (2018)
Coogler puts all the will-they-won't-they 'black Bond' speculation to rest by effectively getting there first, from the fascination with gadgetry to the thrilling set-pieces.

Phantom Thread (2018)
As for Day-Lewis' retirement plans, we can only hope that he reconsiders. But if this is indeed his final performance then it's one hell of a swansong.
Posted Feb 1, 2018
The Post (2018)
Though the film depicts events from 46 years ago, the resonance of the message about the importance of press freedom couldn't be clearer.
Posted Jan 19, 2018
The spirit-raising fantasy single-handedly atones for years of Mexican cartoon stereotypes.
Posted Jan 18, 2018
Darkest Hour (2017)
Oldman makes the role entirely his own, by turns mischievous, grumpy, panicked, vulnerable, blustering, stubborn and a whole host of other adjectives besides.
Posted Jan 12, 2018
Shocking, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny.
Posted Jan 11, 2018
Adorned with an impressive set of whiskers, Christian Bale delivers one of his best performances to date.

Posted Dec 1, 2017
The Disaster Artist (2017)
An ode to gloriously terrible filmmaking, with Franco turning in perhaps his best performance to date.
Posted Nov 29, 2017
Suburbicon is neither as funny nor as clever as it thinks it is. It's tempting to wonder what might have been had the Coens seen it through to the end.
Posted Nov 24, 2017
Battle of the Sexes (2017)
Emma Stone delivers perhaps her finest performance to date, adeptly conveying King's fiery determination, but also her heart-breaking vulnerability.
Posted Nov 23, 2017

Posted Nov 17, 2017
Justice League (2017)
Fittingly for a film that follows directly on from Batman Vs Superman, it's an ugly mess.
Posted Nov 16, 2017
Paddington 2 (2018)
Paddington 2 is the perfect tonic for these troubled times. Anyone who disagrees should be fixed with a Very Hard Stare.
Posted Nov 8, 2017
The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)
The Killing of a Sacred Deer is doubly unsettling, because it's simultaneously terrifying and laugh-out-loud funny.

As a satire on lifestyle envy and the emptiness of consumerism, the film is sharp as a tack.
Posted Oct 17, 2017
The Snowman (2017)
As Scandi-crime thrillers go, The Snowman is something of a wash-out, lacking anything resembling thrills, chills or suspense. It is, in a word, abominable.
