2.5/5 No Score Yet The Tribe (Cuckold) (2015) While The Tribe ticks the boxes purely on its cinematic merits, viewers who come to a movie as consumers who want to be entertained, provoked or thrilled might find this lacking.‐ City Press (South Africa)

4/5 No Score Yet Noem My Skollie (2016) The best South African film of 2016 ... Anchored by a heart-wrenching autobiographical script by John Fredericks, it tells the story of a young boy who becomes a gangster on the Cape Flats.‐ City Press (South Africa)

4/5 89% Fire In The Blood (2013) Upsetting, poignant, infuriating... it shows the very worst of humanity - how privileged people in the West simply just didn't give a damn about millions upon millions of people dying in Africa. This is compulsory watching.‐ City Press (South Africa)

4/5 100% Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS (2017) Hell on Earth is not an easy watch - it's infuriating and harrowing, and the footage is raw and visceral - but it should be compulsory viewing.‐ City Press (South Africa)

4/5 28% Warcraft (2016) The film looks spectacular, the characters are marvellously cheesy and, instead of the subversive wink to the audience that we might expect from a title like this, Jones is never condescending to his demographic.‐ City Press (South Africa)

5/5 No Score Yet While You Weren't Looking (2015) An incisive look at different levels of privilege in South Africa's queer community.‐ City Press (South Africa)

3/5 No Score Yet The Shore Break (2014) Grunenwald masterfully captures the beauty of this lush, green part of our country ... Because the story is so politically complex, though, you tend to lose focus and it lags in places.‐ City Press (South Africa)

1/5 No Score Yet Impunity (2014) If Mistry is trying to say violence is so normal in South Africa that some of us are starting to get off on it, it's a fascinating premise - but banally and very bluntly executed here.‐ City Press (South Africa)
