3/5 86% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) There is a bracing originality to The Untamed, a surreal mixture of science fiction and sexually charged kitchen sink drama from cult Mexican director Amat Escalante.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 54% The Odyssey (L'odyssée) (2016) The seas sparkle, the skies shimmer but the script refuses to shine as it soon becomes bogged down in family dramas and soap opera clichés.‐ Daily Express (UK)

1/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) This odd couple "romp" is so dumb and shows such disregard for human life that it beggars belief.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 54% The Odyssey (L'odyssée) (2016) A film that looks fantastic but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic clichés. A lot of dodgy wigs and liver spots float before our eyes to convey the passage of years.‐ The List

No Score Yet Mrs. Fang (2017) The agonising last days of a woman in the final stages of Alzheimer's are captured in a stark, unflinching manner by Wang Bing's gruelling documentary.‐ Screen International

4/5 67% Napping Princess (2017) Not entirely coherent, Napping is still visually striking with some outstanding action sequences.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 No Score Yet Mein Blind Date mit dem Leben (2017) Undeniably schmaltzy but it is also engaging and funny. Only a curmudgeon wouldn't respond to its life-affirming message.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) A bold experiment of a film that can only be called haunting.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
3/5 75% Atomic Blonde (2017) The constant suggestion of cross and double-cross becomes a little wearing as the film heads to the two-hour mark and we never really care about the characters or feel they do more than strike the coolest of poses and the fiercest of blows.‐ Daily Express (UK)

No Score Yet The Song of Scorpions (2017) Love moves in the most twisted, mysterious ways in The Song Of Scorpions, a film whose gentle manner belies it darker themes.‐ Screen International

No Score Yet Let the Corpses Tan (Laissez bronzer les cadavres!) (2017) [A] meticulously executed, obsessively stylised exercise in genre worship that quickly becomes overpowering.‐ Screen International

40% Madame Hyde (2017) It achieves stray laughs and some clever moments, but not enough to render it more than a strained curiosity.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
61% What Happened to Monday (2017) It may have its failings but it is never less than entertaining.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2017
No Score Yet Lola Pater (2017) The path from resentment to reconciliation may be well-worn but it is travelled with a good deal of charm and sensitivity in Lola Pater.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
3/5 79% The Ghoul (2017) It may not withstand close scrutiny but The Ghoul provides a workout for the little grey cells and suggests Tunley is a filmmaker to watch.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 8% The Emoji Movie (2017) Sad faces all around.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
3/5 100% Cardboard Gangsters (2017) Connors' compelling performance creates a degree of sympathy for Jason however the film seems a little too fond of his brutality and casual misogyny.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 89% Land of Mine (Under Sandet) (2017) A thoughtful, poignant story that deservedly won Møller the Danish equivalent of the Bafta best actor prize.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 58% England Is Mine (2017) It is a suitably grey and gloomy portrait of the artist as a young man with an eclectic soundtrack and a plucky central performance from Dunkirk's Jack Lowden.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
3/5 51% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) It may buzz with energy and unspool at a breathless pace but originality is not one of its strengths.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 69% The Wall (2017) A film that begins with the premise of a classic western or a cat-and-mouse thriller unfolds more like a worthy radio drama or a fringe theatre production.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
3/5 88% Girls Trip (2017) Girls Trip is crude and veers towards soap opera but there is a chemistry between the stars, some funny situations and Haddish steals the show as the unrelentingly vulgar Dina.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2017
5/5 93% Howards End (1992) One of the best Merchant Ivory productions and one of the finest adaptations of an EM Forster novel.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 14% Monster Island (2017) Manic, simplistic and never especially funny, Monster Island is a plucky attempt that is unlikely to cause any sleepless nights for Despicable Me 3 or Captain Underpants.‐ The List

3/5 79% The Beguiled (2017) The candlelit interiors and misty forests make the film look inviting and the acting is fist rate with Farrell winning our sympathy and Dunst capturing all the longing and heartache of Edwina.‐ Daily Express (UK)

1/5 43% Song to Song (2017) An insufferably pretentious affair that feels like a selection of improvised rehearsals rather than the finished article.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
4/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) The notion of an immature, untrained Spider-Man brings a fresh feel and the always reliable Michael Keaton makes a sinister but strangely sympathetic villain as The Vulture.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
4/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) An eerie tale that is all the more effective for its restraint.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 16% All Eyez on Me (2017) Even with an epic running time of close to two-and-a-half hours, All Eyez On Me never gets to the heart of a man described as a "walking contradiction".‐ Daily Express (UK)
