Recommended 85% It (2017) As a well-crafted scarefest, It is satisfying and exhausting in equal measure.‐ 4:3

Recommended 63% Liberation Day (2017) Whatever labyrinthine justifications stand behind it, Liberation Day is the kind of film that might never be made again, so I can safely say that you'll never see anything quite like it.‐ 4:3

Not Recommended 50% PACmen (2017) ...the grand potential of the film is somewhat squandered by its glacial pace, muddled narrative, and generally confused understanding as to what exactly about Carson and his campaign was so interesting. ‐ 4:3

Recommended No Score Yet Shadow World (2016) ... a broad, angry condemnation of the neoliberal consensus which elbowed its way through violence and crafty politics into ideological prominence in the 1980s.‐ 4:3

Recommended 94% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) Amongst a field of analysis which examines Scientology as a cabal of rich wackos gone wild on the taxpayer's dime, Going Clear thrives.‐ 4:3

Recommended No Score Yet Adam Curtis: Bitter Lake (2015) Bitter Lake documents the modern history of Afghanistan as a graveyard for political discourse: where concise slogans and chest-thumping war mantras go to die. ‐ 4:3

Recommended 90% Concerning Violence (2014) An incisive piece of philosophy which inspires rage through its measured presentation.‐ 4:3

Recommended 58% Finding Fela! (2014) [Gibney] raises a pertinent question: is it contradictory to beatify an avowed anti-capitalist revolutionary with an elaborately produced show? ‐ 4:3

Recommended 100% Utopia (2013) Utopia is a defining anti-colonial film which condemns Australians with as much fury as it does the endless system of bureaucracy which enables them.‐ 4:3
