4/5 No Score Yet Little Sister "Clark's approach is scrappy but the scuzzy digital aesthetic and herky-jerky camera are the perfect form in which to capture this family's messy emotions. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 25, 2016
4/5 100% Little Men (2016) "Sachs specialises in low-key melodrama, creating moments of joy and sadness so casually that they take you by surprise. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 22, 2016
5/5 83% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) "Much is suggested, little explained, but The Childhood of a Leader is rich with allegorical meaning and we're left with plenty to chew on between elliptical episodes. " ‐ The Skinny

4/5 78% From Afar (Desde Allá) (2016) "A gritty and cinematic study in desire and repression, and a tantalising calling card for first time director Vigas. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 18, 2016
4/5 88% Speed Sisters "Speed Sisters may be light but it's never lightweight. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 17, 2016
4/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) "A goofy kids' horror-comedy that lets RL Stine's monsters, and a hysterically over-the-top Jack Black, run amok " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 1, 2016
4/5 94% Creed (2015) "Director Ryan Coogler knows exactly when to hit us with a training montage or an emotional speech, but he also throws some unexpected punches. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jan 14, 2016
3/5 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "The Force Awakens is thrilling and fun, but fans of A New Hope might have more than a hint of déjà vu. " ‐ The Skinny

Posted Nov 23, 2015
4/5 97% Tangerine (2015) "A single-night screwball set on the West Hollywood strip that comes at you like a Jim Jarmusch movie on amphetamines. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Nov 5, 2015
4/5 93% Queen of Earth (2015) "It's a horror movie you need to watch through splayed fingers, not because of anything frightening on screen, but because of its awkwardness. " ‐ The Skinny

Posted Oct 21, 2015
4/5 100% My Scientology Movie "In the past Theroux's nice-guy act has turned nazis and survivalists apoplectic, and he gets similar reactions from Miscavige's enclave " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Oct 19, 2015
4/5 71% 11 Minutes (11 Minut) (2016) "The theme is nihilistic but its execution is thrilling. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Oct 13, 2015
2/5 96% Son of Saul (2015) "Son of Saul is bracing, but its power diminishes as the film wears on; we become numb to Nemes's bravura direction just as Saul has become numb to mass murder. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Oct 13, 2015
2/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "This is a film that's been shredded to near-incoherence in the editing room, with a finale that's over before it's barely begun. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Aug 5, 2015
5/5 36% Killing Zoe (1994) "It sweeps you up in Eric's Dionysian revelry and, like Zed, you'll be clambering for a shower afterwards. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jul 30, 2015
4/5 94% Best Of Enemies (2015) "Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon's gripping doc is structured like a boxing movie, but in this case the pugilists are intellectual heavyweights " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jul 24, 2015
4/5 93% Slow West (2015) "Maclean's askance outsider's view of America's Old West is bracing; he strips away the pioneering myths and shows it for what it truly was. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 22, 2015
4/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) "Love & Mercy is that rarest of things: a music biopic that doesn't just tell you about a tortured genius, it puts you in their head. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 22, 2015
3/5 40% She's Funny That Way (2015) "Like the 40s screwballs it pinches from, it's daft and often hilarious - particularly angry Aniston. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 19, 2015
5/5 97% 45 Years (2015) "Haigh quietly ratchets the tension... while much praise should go to the two yin and yang leads. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 19, 2015

Posted Mar 31, 2015
4/5 89% White God (2015) "What holds Kornél Mundruczó's scrappy film all together is its fierce and forceful political metaphor: society's underdogs - be it ethnic minorities, the poor, the disenfranchised - if pushed too far, will bite back (in this case literally). " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Mar 31, 2015
5/5 83% Eden (2015) "It's a kind of vampire movie, with our protagonist trapped in the crepuscular purgatory of his early 20s. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 25, 2015
4/5 98% Phoenix (2015) "We buy the premise because of the film's dreamy quality: Phoenix's Berlin is a rubble-strewn labyrinth and its inhabitants walking ghosts haunted by the recent past. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 24, 2015
3/5 60% The Grand Seduction (2014) "If McKellar could have just injected some of the eccentricity of his brilliant debut, Last Night, into proceedings we might have had an Ealing-esque social farce. Instead we're left with a comedy that's wry but prosaic. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jan 6, 2015
4/5 97% Life Itself (2014) "Both an unflinching document of the last days of film critic Roger Ebert's life and a densely packed celebration of his career. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Nov 13, 2014
77% Beyond Clueless (2014) "Through witty editing, a hypnotic narration and a hair-raising score, Lyne makes a compelling case that these candy-coloured teenage confections have dark, poisonous cores " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Oct 28, 2014
3/5 78% Moebius (2014) "[Kim Ki-duk] peppers his film's nastiness with baroque humour. " ‐ The Skinny

Posted Oct 2, 2014
5/5 97% We Are the Best! (2014) "It may not be very punk, but these girls just want to have fun. And, crucially, Moodysson is having a good time too; there's joy in every frame. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jul 25, 2014
3/5 86% Chef (2014) "Favreau's picture doesn't represent the filmmaking rehabilitation its meta plot alludes to, but it's a step in the right direction. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 23, 2014
5/5 90% Stray Dogs (2014) "Stray Dogs is an existentialist study of human endurance presented in two acts. Both are spectacular. " ‐ The Skinny

Posted Jun 23, 2014
3/5 64% We Are Monster "It may lack nuance, but presenting the film from Stewart's point of view makes the title explicit. Monsters aren't born, they're conditioned. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 20, 2014
4/5 72% Palo Alto (2014) "Kilmer and Robert's tender, heartfelt performances give real depth to familiar coming-of-age pangs and pinings. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 20, 2014
2/5 89% Calvary (2014) "Perhaps to compensate for his talky script and repetitive structure, McDonagh's direction is distractingly fussy, all asymmetrical framing and on-the-nose symbolism. The one grace note is Gleeson. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Apr 7, 2014
4/5 99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) "You rush to Spotify to hear more of their songs post-credits. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 27, 2014
5/5 78% Tom at the Farm (2015) "The result is a mean little absurdist thriller, and, by some margin, the best of Dolan's work so far. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 27, 2014
5/5 85% Under the Skin (2014) "What begins as an eerie psychosexual horror movie slowly shifts to a haunting study of loneliness and female subjugation. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Feb 27, 2014
4/5 81% Crystal Fairy (2013) "Silva's freewheeling direction is pleasantly at odds with the angst on screen. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jan 16, 2014
5/5 86% Computer Chess (2013) "This is a philosophical comedy as dense and complex as any programming algorithm. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Nov 21, 2013
3/5 92% Philomena (2013) "What makes Philomena so winning is the sophisticated way in which it condemns the behaviour of the Catholic Church without denigrating people of faith - a delicate tightrope act that has given plenty of more high-minded films vertigo. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/5 34% Passion (2013) "This is half a good De Palma film, which means it's still superior to most movies. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Aug 13, 2013
5/5 93% Frances Ha (2013) "Gerwig's deft screwball timing turns every disaster into a grace note. This may be a comedy of awkwardness, but rather than curl, your toes will tap. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Jun 19, 2013
3/5 63% Byzantium (2013) "The film often meanders, but ... delicious moments of surprise and invention more than compensate. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted May 23, 2013
5/5 92% O Som ao Redor (Neighbouring Sounds) (2012) "Filho's use of space is masterful, as fine as Antonioni or Polanski, with long Steadicam tracks and crisp wide shots giving us a fine-grained rendering of the block's communal and private spaces. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Mar 21, 2013
2/5 83% Side Effects (2013) "A ludicrous thriller disguised as a sociopolitical statement on the US pharmaceutical industry. " ‐ The Skinny
Posted Mar 7, 2013
4/5 67% Spring Breakers (2013) "If Michael Mann was to take a lot of hallucinogenics and shoot a Girls Gone Wild video, it might look something like this. " ‐ The Skinny
