Arrival (2016)

"Denis Villeneuve's Arrival is that rare beast: an awe-inspiring sci-fi that delivers both spectacle and smarts." The Skinny

Frantz (2016)

"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

Matinee (1992)

"This celebration of art over war is the closest thing Gremlins director Joe Dante has to a lost masterpiece." The Skinny

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

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

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

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

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

Speed Sisters (2017)

"Speed Sisters may be light but it's never lightweight." The Skinny

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

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

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

Carol (2015)

"Haynes tells us that, thrillingly, passion burns hotter than fear." The Skinny

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

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

Room (2015)

"A beautiful and humane response to inhumanity." The Skinny

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

She's Funny That Way (2015)

"Like the 40s screwballs it pinches from, it's daft and often hilarious - particularly angry Aniston. " The Skinny

45 Years (2015)

"Haigh quietly ratchets the tension... while much praise should go to the two yin and yang leads. " The Skinny

The New Girlfriend (2015)

"Loosely based on a Ruth Rendell story, Ozon's film quivers between psychological thriller and playful farce." The Skinny
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

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

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

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

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

Moebius (2014)

"[Kim Ki-duk] peppers his film's nastiness with baroque humour." The Skinny

Tony Benn: Will and Testament (2014)

"As great company as the man himself is, this hymn to Benn is ultimately disappointing." The Skinny

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

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

5/5 90%

Stray Dogs (2014)

"Stray Dogs is an existentialist study of human endurance presented in two acts. Both are spectacular." The Skinny

The Skeleton Twins (2014)

"This brother-sister bond, so rarely explored on screen, is what makes The Skeleton Twins sing." The Skinny

We Are Monster (2015)

"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

20 Feet From Stardom (2013)

"You rush to Spotify to hear more of their songs post-credits." The Skinny
Posted Feb 27, 2014

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

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

Crystal Fairy (2013)

"Silva's freewheeling direction is pleasantly at odds with the angst on screen." The Skinny

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
