5/5 93% A Touch of Sin (2013) "This major work is cinematic in scope but loses none of the provocative truth that defines Zhangke's oeuvre. " ‐ The Skinny

3/5 51% Half of a Yellow Sun (2014) "Strongly played by all four leads, Half of a Yellow Sun is sumptuous and enjoyable, but there is just too much paint in this story for the canvas provided. " ‐ The Skinny

4/5 91% Locke (2014) "This does not quite share the subtlety of Beckett (metaphors of hardening concrete footprints are a little too obvious), or the poetry of language, but must be considered a modern equivalent. " ‐ The Skinny

3/5 81% Salvo (2014) "Visually confident with a notably bare sound design of introspective silences, ticking clocks, a solitary barking dog, it's a film sure of its movement, strolling like a lion. " ‐ The Skinny

4/5 80% Of Good Report "The riffs on Lolita are obvious and well referenced, but where Nabokov provoked in prose, Qubeka uses images and angles, forcing us into an uncomfortable complicity. " ‐ The Skinny

2/5 70% About Time (2013) "There is no dissection of love or the human condition here, only a syrupy river flowing away from the comedy zeitgeist that's so sweet it should come with a shot of insulin. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Sep 2, 2013
3/5 88% A Última Vez Que Vi Macau (The Last Time I Saw Macao) (2013) "The directors build a melancholy collage of beautiful images, many of which worthy of a gallery wall, in this attempt to untwine both individual and national displaced histories. " ‐ The Skinny

4/5 33% The Berlin File (2013) "Retrospectively cold war in tone this provides action more brutal than balletic and the promise of a Bourne-style franchise in the making. " ‐ The Skinny

3/5 93% Our Children (2013) "A film which tackles serious issues that are both intensely personal and widely political, but which fails to offer understanding of subjects which are perhaps simply incomprehensible. " ‐ The Skinny

Posted Jan 17, 2013

Posted Feb 23, 2012
3/5 45% Albatross (2012) "A serving of teenage angst with a side order of syrup which, like the films of John Hughes, treats both characters and audience with respect and affection. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jan 26, 2012
4/5 100% Blood in the Mobile "This is a valuable film which needs to be seen and which holds an uneasy truth that makes us all complicit. " ‐ The Skinny
