4/5 84% Julieta (2016) Sliding between past and present, Almodóvar drip-feeds revelations to hook viewers while crafting an affecting study of lost, grief and guilt. And the actresses, as ever in a Pedro joint, are terrific.‐ Total Film

3/5 11% Cell (2016) The opening is a hoot and the closer would make George A. Romero quake, but much in between is as flat as Cusack's battery.‐ Total Film

5/5 94% Blue Velvet (1986) Isabella Rossellini's singer Dorothy is a heart-rending open wound, Dennis Hopper's Frank Booth one of cinema's great nutjobs, and Lynch's control a thing of nightmarish beauty.‐ Total Film

4/5 100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) Nathalie's brought to life by Huppert's subtly complex turn and Hansen-Løve's fluid, unfussy direction.‐ Total Film
