4/5 82% Green Book (2018) Farrelly zeroes in on a portrayal of humanity with all its bumps and bruises. That social change often comes through a combination of love, exposure and confrontation.‐ Orca Sound

3.5/5 95% If Beale Street Could Talk (2019) Director/screenwriter Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) has demonstrated so far over his short career that film can still be thought of as art and an experience. ‐ Orca Sound

4/5 96% Roma (2018) Powerful because it is so personal. Cuaron is drawing from his own life to portray the Mexico of the 1970s he remembers. Filled with social hierarchy and political unrest. ‐ Orca Sound

3/5 81% Fahrenheit 11/9 (2018) After finishing watching director Michael Moore's latest film, Fahrenheit 11/9, I wondered if 9/11 was really the worst thing that has happened to the United States so far this century. ‐ Orca Sound

3/5 98% The Cakemaker (2018) First time feature film director and screenwriter Ofir Raul Graizer has, like his main character Thomas, managed to make a delicious film/cake with simple ingredients. It really is all in the construction/baking.‐ Orca Sound

3.5/5 82% Sauvage (2019) Depicting the life of a prostitute in a frank way is nothing new in the world of film. The difference here is that it is about a male prostitute and the violent nature of it all. The viewers' feelings are not spared.‐ Orca Sound

2.5/5 26% The Nun (2018) Right off the top I will say that it is not a fantastic film, but there are some creepy moments scattered throughout. Enough so that you will endure through the rest which is quite substandard.‐ Orca Sound

2.5/5 60% Octavio Is Dead (2018) Plenty to keep your interest is happening, yet it falls short of working. Maybe it is because there is no real link made between any parts of the story. The parts do not make a whole. Or cogent story.‐ Orca Sound

4/5 100% A Moment in the Reeds (2017) Ably portraying the awkwardness of their first time, the two young actors bring plenty of believability and humanity to their characters. You are taken in immediately by them and are invested in thier burgeoning relationship. ‐ Orca Sound

4/5 84% Disobedience (2018) Based on the novel by Naomi Alderman, the lesbian love story is full of a quiet substance which the two female leads feed with their talent. ‐ Orca Sound

2/5 33% The Rainbow Bridge Motel (2018) Like the motel they stay in, the entire film seems rather run down and out of date. While the film tries hard to be likeable all its flaws sabotages any fond feelings you might have for it.‐ Orca Sound

3/5 86% Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite) (2019) There is something about films made in France. They just seem to be able to portray the human condition whether it be humour, drama or romance in a more adept way than others do.‐ Orca Sound

3.5/5 100% Samouni Road (2018) Samouni Road, which also screened at Cannes earlier this year, is about a family living on the outskirts of Gaza. They have suffered tragic losses in the ongoing conflict in the area. ‐ Orca Sound

3/5 96% Bisbee '17 (2018) The Deportation seemed to disappear from town history. It was rarely mentioned. Even today residents don't really talk of the Deportation. It is a town that can keep a secret.‐ Orca Sound

2.5/5 31% Girls of the Sun (Les filles du soleil) (2018) War from the female perspective has not often been told. Especially from this point of view. Women as victims of war has been done, but this one shows that they can be victims and then take a proactive stance on how they are going to deal with it.‐ Orca Sound

3/5 92% The World Is Yours (Le monde ou rien) (2018) At Cannes with its notoriously unpredictable audiences the reaction to the film was overwhelmingly positive. It is your stereotypical crowd pleaser. ‐ Orca Sound

2/5 32% Loving Pablo (2018) That being said, Loving Pablo features solid performances by all the main actors = Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Peter Sarsgaard. The end result is the not the sum of these parts unfortunately.‐ Orca Sound

2.5/5 86% A Whale of a Tale (2018) Eight years later we return to the town of Taiji, Japan courtesy of director Megumi Sasaki's film, A Whale of a Tale.‐ Orca Sound

4/5 97% The Hate U Give (2018) It would be a serious mistake to just chalk this up to being just another coming of age film.‐ Orca Sound

3.5/5 89% Rafiki (2018) Love is tricky enough, but when you add in having to choose between it and your own safety the level of difficulty goes up immeasurably.‐ Orca Sound

3.5/5 100% Obey (2018) Gender, race and class are put under a microscope here. It is not a comfortable look. ‐ Orca Sound

2.5/5 66% The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) You won't think it the worst film you have seen, but it most certainly will not make your 10 best films of the year list either. ‐ Orca Sound
