3.5/5 61% 31 (2016) "To put it more simply, this is fun. It has energy and it has personality. Zombie is not (yet) up there with the greats, but this is superior trash. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Sep 23, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Downhill "Although the film packs in a few genre clichés, it has an energy of its own and a centred quality that helps it stand out, making it one of the more memorable offerings of its kind. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Sep 9, 2016
4/5 93% Starving The Beast (2016) "By taking this expansive approach, Mims brings the debate itself out of the shadows and makes it publicly available. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Sep 9, 2016
2.5/5 55% Zoom (2016) "A bold story like this needs to be delivered with confidence. Zoom falls short of the mark. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Sep 2, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Realive "Realive is beautifully produced, with a capable cast and great technical work all round. This polish will effectively glosses over its weaknesses as far as many viewers are concerned. " ‐ Eye for Film

3.5/5 No Score Yet The Killing of America (1982) "Whilst it may not be the sharpest piece of sociological analysis, The Killing Of America has an important point to make about the level of brutality Americans have come to take for granted. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 29, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Francesca "The stunning visuals - beautifully shot in a whirl of rich colours and edited together with feverish energy - easily overwhelm the plot, as does the pounding, vibrant score. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 29, 2016
2.5/5 88% Beyond the Gates "This is a film destined to find its natural home on DVD, where it really needs the game among its extras. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 29, 2016
3/5 83% Abattoir "This feels like an episode of Mystery Theater and will charm fans of old radio horror. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 29, 2016
4/5 81% Road Games (2016) "Though its tendency to whimsy means it's not quite as tightly plotted as it needs to be, this charismatic little thriller still manages to punch above its weight. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 26, 2016
3/5 92% The Similars (Los Parecidos) "Director Isaac Ezban, whose previous feature, The Incident, also had a dreamlike quality, brings a very distinctive look to the film, in more ways than one. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 26, 2016
4.5/5 82% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "Uthaug has ably demonstrated that one doesn't need a blockbuster budget to make a world class action film, and that the potential of the new Scandinavian cinema extends far beyond noir. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 19, 2016
3/5 93% Emelie (2016) "Where it does fall back on formula, Emelie is sufficiently well made to hold viewer attention and it succeeds in maintaining a degree of creepiness throughout. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 15, 2016
3.5/5 48% Edge of Winter (2016) "This is a very watchable film which marks out Holland as a young actor likely to go far. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 11, 2016
4/5 75% Lace Crater (2016) "Lace Crater is sometimes a comedy, sometimes a horror film, but at its core is something bleaker than either genre is ordinarily willing to contemplate. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 8, 2016
3.5/5 86% Citizen Soldier (2016) "It's well edited to create a film that tells the soldiers' story well, and for that, many small sins can be forgiven. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Aug 4, 2016
2.5/5 55% Can We Take a Joke? (2016) "Whilst it's impressively produced, it focuses so hard on making its point that it overlooks the nuances that make the subject interesting. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Jul 26, 2016
3/5 77% The Phenom (2016) "Simmons is generally convincing but it's difficult for him to combine this with holding centre stage, especially in scenes alongside Ethan Hawke, who is cast against type as a low rent Tyler Durden and clearly enjoying every minute of it. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Jul 1, 2016
3/5 50% Mark of the Witch (Another) (2016) "For all its failings, for all its pretension, Mark Of The Witch is a damn sight bolder and more interesting than most of what's around these days, and for that reason it's well worth seeking out. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Jun 9, 2016
3.5/5 63% Therapy for a Vampire (Der Vampir auf der Couch) (2016) "If you've ever baulked at the thought of eternal life and wondered if it might not get a bit dull after a while, you may sympathise with the undead hero of David Ruhm's deftly structured fable. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted May 13, 2016
2/5 30% Love Thy Nature (2016) "In a style that's becoming typical of indie science documentaries, it mixes solid, well established material with poorly substantiated ideas and a tendency to whimsy, but at least it's pretty. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted May 3, 2016
4.5/5 78% Sin Alas (2015) "This is a extraordinarily bold first film which, though it certainly has its flaws, makes intriguing viewing. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 30, 2016
3.5/5 100% The Divide "At a time when political and economic ideologies are very much in flux, The Divide makes a valuable contribution to communicating the framework of the debate -- and to explaining why it matters. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 26, 2016
4/5 67% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "It's a contemplative, melancholy work which hints at a semi-religious ecstasy rooted in the mundane and kept just out of reach. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 25, 2016
4/5 88% Havana Motor Club (2016) "Perlmutt really knows his stuff and effortlessly evokes the iconic movie imagery that evolved to show these automobiles at their best. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Temps (2016) "Superficially -- and this is a story very much concerned with the superficial -- this is a light, breezy affair with sexually assertive characters who know what they want and have a great time together. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3.5/5 60% Viva (2007) "Does Viva work if one doesn't get the joke? By and large, yes. It's still full of wonderful characters, there's the occasional quip reminiscent of Russ Meyer at his finest, and the sets are spectacular. " ‐ Eye for Film

Posted Feb 22, 2016

Posted Feb 22, 2016
5/5 No Score Yet Everything Will Be Okay "Alles Wird Gut perfectly balances the concerns of its various characters and benefits from central performances that are simply stunning. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 22, 2016

Posted Feb 22, 2016
2.5/5 55% Top Gun (1986) "Cruise, the cheesy soundtrack and the stunning aerial photography that marks out its combat scenes are its three main selling points. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 22, 2016
3.5/5 93% Land And Shade (La Tierra Y La Sombra) (2016) "From silence and small details, César Augusto Acevedo weaves a devastating tale. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 22, 2016
3.5/5 No Score Yet Nena "Saskia Diesing's rapid fire photography captures the pace of Nena's quickly shifting world but isn't afraid to linger when the moment calls for it. " ‐ Eye for Film
Posted Feb 22, 2016

Posted Feb 22, 2016
4/5 85% The People vs. Fritz Bauer (Der Staat Gegen Fritz Bauer) (2016) "There are elements of courthouse film and elements of police procedural here, but the overall mood is closer to that of a Cold War spy thriller. " ‐ Eye for Film
