4/5 95% 99 Homes (2015) "Well-constructed, courageous and savvy. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Jun 12, 2015
2.5/5 80% Sunrise "Sen-Gupta's talent as an art director (which is how he began his film career) is not in doubt, but his grasp of narrative is flimsy. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Jun 12, 2015
3.5/5 No Score Yet Special 26 (2013) "There are only two songs (often a bugbear for newcomers) but one of those -- a wedding dance number between Kumar and love interest Kajal Agarwal -- is a dazzling corker. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted May 17, 2015
3.5/5 60% Kai Po Che! (2013) "The performances are strong throughout, but both Yadav and Rajput particularly impress, as they imbue their potentially clichéd roles of egghead accountant and hot-headed control freak with true depth. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted May 17, 2015
1.5/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Admittedly, the film has a thorough knowledge of its forebears and though it namechecks them at every opportunity, Kingsman brings very little that's new or valuable to the playing table. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Jan 29, 2015
2.5/5 87% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015) "There's little doubt that Kikuchi has put a lot of herself into the role of Kumiko, but the film doesn't probe very deep. The film upholds the annoying tradition of festival cinema of being an extended anecdote rather than a sustained story. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Jan 26, 2015
4.5/5 99% Timbuktu (2015) "Timbuktu connects these disparate threads together with a poet's ease and a delightful grace. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3.5/5 89% The Imitation Game (2014) "The film plays out in a satisfying manner, but with subtlety having served its purpose, it becomes increasingly bombastic about its intent. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Dec 24, 2014
1/5 20% Turkey Shoot "The action sequences are poorly rendered and its satirical edge is blunted by its borrowings from sharper films such as Rollerball and Starship Troopers. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Dec 4, 2014
2/5 No Score Yet Love Hotel "Don't panic -- or fall for the film's phony sentimentalism -- Japan's love hotels aren't vanishing just yet and neither will similar lightweight Japan and sex documentaries disappear from the film festival circuit. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Aug 21, 2014
4/5 94% Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films "If you're one of those people who still use the phrase, "It's so bad, it's good," then you'll love this. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Aug 15, 2014
3/5 No Score Yet Fantail "Overall, despite its charms, the film feels like it is missing a vital part, like a car only running on three wheels. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Aug 15, 2014
4.5/5 93% The Infinite Man "Unafraid of its low budget limitations, The Infinite Man makes splendid use of its three-person cast, revels in its minimalist location and yet never feels constrained. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Aug 7, 2014
4.5/5 89% When Animals Dream (2015) "Director Jonas Alexander Arnby has made another excellent contribution to Denmark's soft parade of horror. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Aug 7, 2014
64% 14 Blades (2014) "Stylish package has thesps hitting their marks (and each other), but also keeps the human drama from being swamped by wirework and CGI effects. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 21, 2014
1/4 15% 47 Ronin (2013) "There's clearly been a lot of money spent and a lot of effort (not least by the Japanese actors struggling with their English dialogue), but the results are lacklustre, stupid and that worst of cinematic crimes -- dull. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Feb 21, 2014
1/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) "Goldsman clearly doesn't know who he is making this movie for. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Feb 21, 2014
4/5 80% Miss Granny (2014) "After an hour-and-a-half of near non-stop laughter, this 124-minute film hits squarely on that sore spot where the fear of death, a grief for a misspent youth and the joys of a life we mostly don't appreciate, uneasily co-exist. " ‐ sbs.com.au
Posted Feb 21, 2014
3.5/5 70% Man of Tai Chi (2013) "Reeves kicks off directorial career in style " ‐ sbs.com.au

Posted Dec 7, 2012
4/5 94% Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel (2012) "This pleasurable documentary is jammed packed with images from magazines, photoshoots and newsreels of a life well lived, but also lots of historical footage of the life Vreeland imagined she had too. " ‐ sbs.com.au

63% Dead Europe "Like the Eurozone itself, helmer Tony Krawitz's first full-length fiction feature "Dead Europe" struggles to cohere into a convincing whole, despite sections of commanding authority. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 19, 2012
3/5 73% Prometheus (2012) "Religious neurotics will find plenty of blasphemous ideas to complain about, and yet the question of spiritual belief - the elevation of faith beyond reason - finds substantial support in Prometheus too. Take your pick. " ‐ sbs.com.au
