Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 87% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) Timely. But as a film that takes a watchful approach, opting to dance around its central issue rather than unpack it, its impact is hindered when that political context is considered.‐ New Zealand Herald

3/5 80% The Harvesters (2018) The themes of toxic masculinity and societal roles start strong, and lead actor Brent Vermeulen is hypnotically good - but the film's power is slightly diluted by its muddled narrative.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 90% We the Animals (2018) Though beautifully rendered on 16mm film, the largely plotless narrative relies a little too heavily on dazzling visual tricks - but eventually evolves into a cathartic coming-of-age tale by the third act.‐ New Zealand Herald

4.5/5 89% MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A. (2018) Furiously alive with M.I.A's unwavering spirit, and makes excellent use of her thrilling, worldly music.‐ New Zealand Herald

5/5 83% And Breathe Normally (2018) Director Isold Uggadottir manages to keep the narrative away from melodrama or over-sentimentality. Her direction keeps a careful distance, but is forgiving and empathetic to her struggling characters.‐ New Zealand Herald

4/5 95% Three Identical Strangers (2018) hough it often uses hammy exaggerations to make its points, it's a gripping story which takes a surprisingly dark turn - and asks some lofty questions about nature versus nurture.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 88% Rafiki (2018) While a number of technical and narrative faults let it down, Rafiki's fearless storytelling and its bold, vibrant heart ultimately delivers an enriching cinematic experience.‐ New Zealand Herald

3.5/5 96% Wildlife (2018) Every time the film loses momentum completely, Mulligan pulls viewers back in with a quivering lip or her disarmingly sad eyes.‐ New Zealand Herald

4/5 100% Leave No Trace (2018) Leaves a haunting impression, and drives home the central question; how do we make choices for ourselves without hurting the ones we love? In Granik's world, it's not the answer that hurts - rather, it's the journey to find one that does.‐ New Zealand Herald

No Score Yet The Inland Road (2017) The Inland Road requires patient viewing, and some of the central epiphanies are delivered rather heavy-handedly, but the narrative's delicate slowburn ultimately makes for a deeply satisfying journey.‐ New Zealand Herald

86% Beach Rats (2017) The climax - which finds Frankie making a sloppy attempt to unify his double lives, to hauntingly tense effect - is one of the reasons Beach Rats will linger in viewers' minds for long after.‐ New Zealand Herald

86% Human Traces (2017) Patience is rewarded; as the film returns to the beginning twice more, and fills out the gaps with juicy background information and previously-unseen plot points, the tension is urgently elevated and the story sets into gear. ‐ New Zealand Herald

91% Heal the Living (Réparer les vivants) (2017) [Heal the Living] is a refreshing hospital drama that manages to shun the genre's trappings of melodrama in favour of a more complex and emotive story.‐ New Zealand Herald

95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) Call Me by Your Name is a masterpiece.‐ New Zealand Herald

98% God's Own Country (2017) God's Own Country is an impressive debut that cleverly subverts cliché.‐ New Zealand Herald
