4/5 86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) As with De Niro's deplorable Rupert Pupkin in the similarly themed King of Comedy, you'll find yourself rooting for Aubrey Plaza's psychopathic Ingrid.‐ The Skinny

4/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) Paul King's crazy rhythms are all his own, packing practically every frame with a sight-gag or goofy reference that will make small screen rewatches endlessly enjoyable.‐ The Skinny

4/5 89% Marjorie Prime (2017) Imagine Blade Runner 2049 on a microbudget or Black Mirror with a turbocharged IQ, and you'll get something close to this soulful and quietly moving sci-fi.‐ The Skinny

2/5 76% Last Flag Flying (2017) Every punch in Last Flag Flying is blandly pulled in place of platitudes about patriotism and the honour to serve one's country.‐ The Skinny

4/5 89% Lean on Pete (2017) Despite the increased budget and scope, Andrew Haigh's artistry remains low-key and deeply intimate.‐ The Skinny

2/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) Steven Soderbergh returns from his self-imposed retirement with a hillbilly heist movie that has too many funny accents but not enough funny lines.‐ The Skinny

2/5 39% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Reynolds and Jackson's cross-country bromance might have raised a smile if only writer Tom O'Connor had bothered to give their characters something remotely funny to say on the journey.‐ The Skinny

2/5 77% Final Portrait (2017) Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti was famed for his spindly sculptures; Tucci's film feels similarly stretched.‐ The Skinny

4/5 100% Daphne (2017) A film of compassion and soul, with a protagonist at its heart who's sometimes hard to like but easy to adore.‐ The Skinny

4/5 81% Sweet Virginia (2017) Sweet Virginia's chief assets are its chalk and cheese leads and malevolent atmosphere; smalltown America has rarely looked more desolate and chilling.‐ The Skinny

4/5 99% God's Own Country (2017) A tender love story that's deeply cinematic and builds to a heart-swelling conclusion free of sentimentality.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2017
3/5 64% Detour (2017) If Detour's setup is over-familiar, the execution is pleasingly novel, while its central trio of archetypes prove as unpredictable as the plot.‐ The Skinny

2/5 56% Mad to Be Normal (2017) Mullan fails miserably to let us inside his characters' heads. For a film about psychiatry, that's an inexcusable flaw.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) A scary, funny and razor sharp social thriller, and the most exciting debut film this year.‐ The Skinny

4/5 35% Kuso (2017) Ellison has clearly taken great delight in creating a freakshow designed to offend, but by its end, Kuso might even qualify as moving.‐ The Skinny

2/5 83% Handsome Devil (2017) Handsome Devil might be the straightest gay film in the history of cinema; its characters may be queer, but the filmmaking certainly isn't.‐ The Skinny

5/5 95% Manchester by the Sea (2016) A shattering and surprisingly hilarious study of death, guilt and family centred on a revelatory performance by the good Affleck brother.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
5/5 86% Donnie Darko (2001) As pop as it is arthouse, as funny as it is tragic, Donnie Darko remains a remarkable one-off that's easy to adore.‐ The Skinny

2/5 70% Bleed For This (2016) There's little in Bleed for This that you haven't seen before, and lots you've seen far too often.‐ The Skinny

4/5 94% Arrival (2016) Denis Villeneuve's Arrival is that rare beast: an awe-inspiring sci-fi that delivers both spectacle and smarts.‐ The Skinny

4/5 90% Frantz (2017) As well as stirring up big questions, Frantz will also have you swooning at its romance, and leaning forward to try and unknot its characters' mysteries.‐ The Skinny

5/5 93% Matinee (1992) This celebration of art over war is the closest thing Gremlins director Joe Dante has to a lost masterpiece.‐ The Skinny

4/5 57% The Neon Demon (2016) At its best, The Neon Demon's sound and image combine to create sequences of surreal beauty and sinister menace.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
4/5 93% Little Sister (2016) 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
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2016
4/5 96% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2016
5/5 89% 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
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2016
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

4/5 91% Speed Sisters (2017) Speed Sisters may be light but it's never lightweight.‐ The Skinny
Read More | 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

4/5 95% 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

3/5 93% 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

5/5 94% Carol (2015) Haynes tells us that, thrillingly, passion burns hotter than fear.‐ The Skinny
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2015
4/5 92% 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
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2015
4/5 94% Room (2015) A beautiful and humane response to inhumanity.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2015
4/5 88% My Scientology Movie (2017) 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

4/5 69% 11 Minutes (11 Minut) (2016) The theme is nihilistic but its execution is thrilling.‐ The Skinny
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2015
3/5 41% She's Funny That Way (2015) Like the 40s screwballs it pinches from, it's daft and often hilarious - particularly angry Aniston. ‐ The Skinny
Read More | 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

4/5 80% The New Girlfriend (2015) Loosely based on a Ruth Rendell story, Ozon's film quivers between psychological thriller and playful farce.‐ The Skinny
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
Read More | 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
