4/5 95% The Breadwinner (2017) Cartoon Saloon has already received two Oscar nominations for The Secret Of Kells and Song Of The Sea and this gritty animation about life under the Taliban deserves to make it a hat-trick.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4.5/5 100% Montparnasse Bienvenue (Jeune femme) (2017) Serraille's rambling structure can feel as unfocused as Julia herself but Dosch's ferocious performance and Serraille's fearless direction suggest big futures lie ahead.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 29% Modern Life Is Rubbish (2018) A contrived plot with a predictable twist and overuse of syrupy montages undermine its rock and roll credentials.‐ Daily Express (UK)
Read More | Posted May 5, 2018
36% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) The film descends into cliché with scary children's toys, daft decisions and one implausibly resilient psychopath.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 73% Mom and Dad (2018) It's a horribly clever idea which writer director Brian Taylor uses to craft some devilishly unsettling images.‐ Daily Star

4/5 79% The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018) Some may require more grit in their war movies but this tasty mash-up of the detective mystery and the swooning romance is witty, big-hearted, and relentlessly charming.‐ Daily Express (UK)

4/5 95% Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts (2017) Fans of Spaghetti Western pioneer Sergio Leone may find the pace a little slow but everyone should enjoy the beautiful vistas, hard-bitten script and great score - a blend of Ennio Morricone and Indonesian folk.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 73% Ready Player One (2018) This is fun while it lasts but I would have liked a little more humour and a lot more soul. I pray the retro revival has now hit its peak.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 42% Mary Magdalene (2018) Jesus was about loving the world, not ending it. And that, folks, is all you'll learn from this handsome slog through the Gospels.‐ Daily Express (UK)

3/5 62% Peter Rabbit (2018) The animation is slick, the side characters are amusing and there are a couple of decent gags that Gluck, unfortunately, can't help repeating.‐ Daily Express (UK)

5/5 87% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Phoenix's jittery performance chimes beautifully with Jonny Greenwood's unnerving score, Thomas Townsend's astonishing cinematography and Joe Bini's boundary-pushing editing.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 31% Wonder Wheel (2017) It looks great but the stagey dialogue grates and the plot leaves a bitter aftertaste.‐ Daily Express (UK)

2/5 25% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) The acting feels stilted and the setup seems aimless. Too often, it feels like you're watching a stranger's holiday videos.‐ Daily Star

4/5 97% Black Panther (2018) We're now 10 years and 18 movies into Marvel's expanding "cinematic universe" and it's beginning to show its age. Now the Black Panther is taking his claws to the old formula.‐ Daily Express (UK)
