Posted Aug 16, 2016
3.5/5 100% Frank & Lola "Some of the plot twists strain believability but Ross has a tight hold of the film's emotional drivers, mixing moods like a heady and dangerous cocktail so that a disturbing tension builds. " ‐ Eye for Film

4/5 No Score Yet Christine (2016) "Craig Shilowich's careful scripting avoids all the usual mental illness cliches and hystrionics to help us sympathise with her even in her most unpleasant moments. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 9, 2016
4/5 100% Under The Shadow (2016) "The sleeping and waking worlds begin to tumble together, with cinematographer Kit Fraser using his camera to add to the unsettling atmosphere, spinning the image at key moments or rocking it to ratchet tension. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 9, 2016
4/5 100% Sonita "There's often a question mark over how involved a documentarian has become with their subject and here Ghaemmaghami confronts the issue head on, showing how she becomes not just a recorder of what happens but a catalyst for change. " ‐ Eye for Film

4.5/5 90% Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016) "Relationships and what could be seen as traditional gender roles ripple as fluidly as the muscles on a bull's back, as Mascaro immerses us in Iremar's world. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 9, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet The Eagle Huntress (2016) "This film is worth seeing simply for its National Geographic style snapshot of rural Mongolia. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 9, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Dobra zena (A Good Wife) (2016) "The direction and writing may show signs of first-time work but Karanovic's fearless performance is one of an actress right on the top of her game that smooths over the cracks in plausibility and holds you hard in its gaze. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet The Lure (Córki dancingu) "At the midway point, the screenplay begins to flap about all over the place but Smoczynska's firm, high-energy directing - including an extras-laden shopping centre extravaganza - doesn't stop to let you consider them for too long. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
4/5 100% Sufat Chol (Sand Storm) "Our sympathies are torn and turned on a dime. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Aug 7, 2016
3.5/5 83% Goat (2016) "Neel's movie grips not because of its depiction of hazing, although that is sweaty, disturbing and naturalistic, but because of the psychological tension that builds between the two brothers. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Aug 7, 2016
3.5/5 86% Three Days of the Condor (1975) "While its thriller elements deliver, the film is undermined by a subplot that was surely over-egged even when it was made and which has only been further diminished by the passage of time. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
2.5/5 63% The Land (2016) "Caple and his cinematographer Steven Holleran definitely get the look even if the story doesn't quite deliver, suggesting more and better to come in the future, especially if they get the opportunity to work from a more polished script. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
3/5 91% Departure "This is water colour territory, the palette dominated by blues and greens - beautifully captured by up-and-coming DoP Brian Fawcett - Jools Scott's music subtly affecting and the mood as melancholy as rain running down a window pane. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
2.5/5 50% Mr. Pig (Sr. Pig) "Luna wallows in emotional gloom like a pig in mud, coating the script in a layer after layer of regret to little purpose. " ‐ Eye for Film

3.5/5 No Score Yet Eadweard (2015) "If you're going to make a film about the man considered to the be the "father of modern cinema" then it had better look good and debut feature director Kyle Rideout and his cinematographer Tony Mirza take this task to heart. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016

Posted Aug 7, 2016
3.5/5 No Score Yet Normal Autistic Film "Miroslav Janek's latest documentary aims to immerse us in the lives and views of those who are autistic, shifting the perspective so that the film becomes as much about the way they view the neurotypical as the other way around. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Houston, We Have a Problem! "It's amazing how much the human interest story - at least initially - convinces, showing even when we are ready to dismiss something presented as scientific evidence, we are still ready to swallow a lie if it comes with an emotionally satisfying coating. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Aug 7, 2016
4/5 100% Irreplaceable (Médecin de campagne) "This is a much more confident and relaxed film than Lilti's previous film, showing more faith in characters and less need for dramatic incident, with the general upbeat energy helped along by the sprightly score from LOW. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 7, 2016
3.5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) "The candy-coloured elements of the 1977 original have gone but, perhaps inevitably for Disney, traces of sticky sentiment remain in this otherwise enjoyably earthy re-imagining of Pete's Dragon. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Jul 31, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Ken and Kazu (Ken to Kazu) "There's plenty here to suggest a career in action thrillers lies ahead for Shoji but he needs to work on making his actors grip as tightly as his fight scenes. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted May 21, 2016
4.5/5 96% Weiner (2016) "He seemingly lets the camera into almost every nook and cranny, so that a picture emerges of not only him but the media goldfish bowl people like him inhabit. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Apr 28, 2016
3.5/5 75% Sworn Virgin (Vergine giurata) (2016) "Bispuri and her co-writer Francesca Manieri emphasise the real, using traditional Albanian ceremonies to give a strong sense of place, with cinematographer Vladan Radovic finding good contrast between the cool blues of the village and warmer cityscapes.

Posted Apr 19, 2016

Posted Apr 5, 2016
4/5 100% Virgin Mountain (Fúsi) "It is the casting of Jónsson that is the film's master stroke. Known as a comedian in Iceland, he brings a great sense of underplayed comic timing to Fúsi, resulting in a big impact from small gestures. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 29, 2016

Posted Feb 9, 2016
2.5/5 63% High-Rise (2016) "Supposedly set in the 1970s, this tale of class war subjugates the alienation and savage bite of Ballard's book and relies too heavily on montage to drive its story forward. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 6, 2016
3/5 73% Unbranded (2015) "The end result is part buddy trail-trip mosey and part factual gallop. " ‐ Eye for Film
