100% A River Below (2017) Exploring the consequences of well-intentioned actions and providing a sense of the much bigger picture transforms A River Below into an unexpectedly compelling proposition.‐ Screen International

4/5 75% My Cousin Rachel (2017) It is handsomely crafted and filled with intrigue, leaving you constantly guessing whether the mysterious Rachel is a victim of narrow, twisted minds or a scheming minx whose wickedness knows no bounds.‐ Daily Express (UK)

5/5 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) It is funny but conveys important sentiments about trauma, survival, the kindness of strangers and our shifting sense of what a loving family can be. Highly recommended.‐ Daily Express (UK)

Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
4/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) There is an engaging, old‑school feel to Wonder Woman, a film that has some of the sincerity and charm of the early Christopher Reeve Superman epics.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
79% You Were Never Really Here (2017) A brutal, unforgiving 21st century Taxi Driver with an awards-worthy performance from Joaquin Phoenix as a hammer-wielding, blood-soaked avenger in search of salvation.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
65% Amant Double (L'amant double) (2017) There are plenty of elements to admire in Amant Double but the endless twists and revelations grow tiresome.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
2/5 45% The Hippopotamus (2017) A laboured blend of Agatha Christie-style sleuthing and PG Wodehouse-style country house high jinks that feels very dated.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
3/5 0% It Was Fifty Years Ago Today... Sgt Pepper and Beyond (2017) You expect more than TV interviews, expert analysis and screaming fans from a film that runs close to two hours.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
4/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) Refreshingly different and highly recommended, especially if you have ever watched in awe as David Attenborough explains our wonderful world.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 93% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) Very funny in places and looking an absolute treat, The Other Side Of Hope questions our attitudes to refugees, salutes the kindness of strangers and becomes an ode to the power of compassion to change all our lives.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
3/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) It often feels like one long chase but the special effects are impressive and the film makes the most of its classy, Oscar-winning cast.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
3/5 74% The Beguiled (2017) Enjoyable in places, it nevertheless feels rushed and as flustered as some of the women caught in McBurney's gaze. That can't have been Coppola's intention.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
4/5 89% Loveless (Nelyubov) (2017) Partly inspired by Ingmar Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage, Loveless captures the dying gasps of a toxic relationship in which a couple can no longer stand the sight of each other.‐ The List

13% Rodin (2017) There is never any doubting Doillon's sincerity or artistry but his film is overly cerebral, unfolding in a series of encounters that fade to black and never build a dramatic momentum.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 24, 2017
4/5 69% Happy End (2017) It is bleak and pitiless, combining black comedy and brutal satire to cut to the bone as he skewers the horrors of bourgeois complacency.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
No Score Yet Golden Years (Nos années folles) (2017) Made with typical sensitivity and craft, it may seem old-fashioned but it is a film that allows events of the past to speak directly to the present.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 23, 2017
96% 120 Beats Per Minute (120 battements par minute) (2017) Robin Campillo's third feature as a director confirms the old maxim that the more personal the material, the more authentic the drama.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
3/5 70% The Square (2017) The Square does beguile with its elegant compositions, talking-point set-pieces and constant sense of provocation but ultimately it leaves you feeling that Östlund has bitten off more than he can chew.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
44% April's Daughter (Las hijas de Abril) (2017) Franco continues to show his skill at building tension and presenting characters that leave the viewer slightly off balance.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
80% The Villainess (2017) A satisfyingly convoluted revenge thriller in which the dynamically staged, blood-drenched action sequences are a highlight rather than the film's sole raison d'être.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
2/5 45% The Hippopotamus (2017) Lacking the zeal and comic energy that the material requires, The Hippopotamus feels like a soufflé that has failed to rise, leaving a film that can only be recommended to diehard Allam devotees.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
5/5 93% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) The second in his planned 'ports' trilogy has all the Kaurismäki hallmarks we have come to know and love, from the lugubrious, deadpan humour to the rumbustious rockabilly music choices and the tenderhearted displays of hard-won emotions.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 22, 2017
2/5 84% Okja (2017) The seamless special effects that allow the creature to interact with humans and both rural and urban environments are truly impressive. What a shame the rest of the film is such a let-down.‐ The List
