Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People (2014)

"I just wish that, given it's a film about art, Through a Lens Darkly had taken a bit more of an artistic method to its message."

Fell ()

"Kasimir's film is poignant and beautifully constructed film that once upon a time may have been seen as what was right with the local industry rather than a telltale sign of, supposedly, what's wrong."

Ukraine Is Not a Brothel ()

"The necessity for and the corruptibility of modern political activism is portrayed with beautiful formal imagery and slick editing in Ukraine is Not a Brothel."

Willow Creek (2014)

"It's all well and good to want to say things using the world of a horror movie, but it's even better when you don't forget to try and be scary for 75% of the runtime."

Burning Blue (2014)

"Viewing now in the clear light of a post-DADT world and the grand-standing dialogue of [Director] Greer and co-writer Helene Kvale come off as weightless, drooping under the clichés and perceived inherent power of its story..."

Enemy (2014)

"Enemy feels quite distinctly as a mood piece, a ring of swirling colours and emotions that seems more intent on leaving a mental mark or scar on the viewer than anything resembling a sense of narrative fulfillment."

Grand Piano (2014)

"There's a playfulness to Grand Piano that is deeply rewarding. It's slick, 35mm lensing is drenched in bold colours, interesting compositions and in some sequences a sense of virtuosic camera trickery."

Matka Joanna od Aniolów (Mother Joan of the Angels) (1961)

"The imagery in Mother Joan of the Angels is full if robust symbolism and beautiful, if increasingly more complex and sinister, compositions."

Hawaii (2013)

"Hawaii will likely act as a 100 minutes of groin-stirring cinematic foreplay ... the film is a wonderful creation that radiates and which allows audiences to experience its heart-pounding rhythms with every bit as much intensity as its characters."

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

"I struggle to recognise what [Scorsese's] unique point of view or fresh insight is with the material. Did he have one?"

In the Name Of... (2013)

"In the Name Of is yet another example of excellent gay cinema that, while perhaps dealing with subject matter that is bleak and that has probably been seen before, still feels necessary."

Out in the Dark (2013)

"I enjoyed this one quite a bit it was the ending that struck me as the most impressive."

Bridegroom (2013)

God Loves Uganda (2013)

"The frankness with which the director's subjects open up about the intentions and their beliefs is as alarming as the charm they turn on to win over the faith-starved locals."

Sal (2013)

"[S]cene after scene plays out as if Franco has watched one too many Gus Van Sant movies and figured that's how you make an Important Movie."

Reaching for the Moon (2013)

"I found the story of these two lovers to be not especially involving and hardly fresh or new."

Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013)

"These characters - and by extension, the film - are open books in both the sex and the drama."

Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

"I'd have preferred it to just be more distinctive. Bolder. Scarier. Uglier. Queerer. I can see why it's not, though, which is probably more upsetting."

I Am Divine (2013)

"[Director Jeffrey] Schwartz has made a film that would impress Divine's biggest fan: himself. It's all about Divine, darling and don't you forget it. "

Kill Your Darlings (2013)

"For a film that goes out of its way time and time again to tell the audience that its protagonist was a pioneering wunderkind who helped revolutionise an artform and thought outside the box, John Krokidas' Kill Your Darlings is awfully staid."

Wild Style (2013)

"I guess it depends on what you go to the movies for, but for me Wild Style is a classic and a remarkable example of what the medium can do to an audience."

Concussion (2013)

Il Futuro (2013)

"However, it has a really unique point of view that puts it on par with some of the most adventurous South American cinema of recent years."

The Dirties (2013)

"It's fresh and original and utilises the popular trend of mockumentaries to watch a horror unfold in an entirely different and unique way."

Frances Ha (2013)

"[T]he film is a delightfully spry vacation into the life of a woman who doesn't really deserve the affectionate film around her."

Anna Nicole (2013)

"While the subject matter is actually a very interesting one, and something that would suit Harron perfectly given her history of looking at maligned figures in a clear-eyed fashion, she has unfortunately been laboured with a disappointing screenplay..."

Behind the Candelabra (2013)

"One of [Soderbergh's] strengths is in the way he subverts traditional narratives and finds interesting moments that other directors wouldn't think twice about."

The Secret Disco Revolution (2013)

"While there is plenty of interest in Kastner's documentary, anybody with more than a passing knowledge of the disco era will know most of it already."

Interior. Leather Bar. (2014)

"At only 60 minutes long - and many of those minutes filled with Val Lauren looking off into the mass of naked bodies or simply into the distance - I'm not sure why they didn't just go the whole way and do what the film posits them as having set out to do."

I Want Your Love ()

"[I]t's a shame then that the film doesn't do all that much with the promise of this more honest material. "
