Recommended 60% The Young Karl Marx (Le jeune Karl Marx) (2018) It doesn't proselytise as much as it runs with an inherent assumption of the value of the ideas it portrays, taking a relatively dry series of historical events and making them refreshingly accessible. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 87% The Untamed (La región salvaje) (2017) Although there's an inherent degree of violence and shock in The Untamed, Escalante uses these abrasive tools to infuse his work with damning socio-political critique. - 4:3 EDIT

Highly Recommended 88% The Ornithologist (O ornitólogo) (2017) It's a clearly unconventional take on solitude, but it simultaneously remains resoundingly tied to the experience, cohering Rodrigues' film as his most impressive to date. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 89% By the Time It Gets Dark (Dao khanong) (2017) It's a film that paints a flawed, enduring image of modernity, of Thailand as a country in a lengthy process of negotiation with its past, and of its increasingly globalised place in the world. - 4:3 EDIT

Not Recommended 92% James White (2015) Josh Mond's film feels like a careful curation of western cinephilia's most overdone narrative arcs and exhausted character clichés. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 87% The Tribe (2015) Slaboshpytskiy's film positions the viewer to recognise the astounding cinematography, the desolate setting and the compelling performances from a predominantly younger cast. - 4:3 EDIT

Highly Recommended 96% The Look of Silence (2015) It's a film that shows how weak and fragile memory is, and how the mind is powerful enough to suppress the greatest horror. - 4:3 EDIT

Recomended 100% Love & Peace (2015) The film jumps from drama to action to adventure, even flirting with the idea of offering itself up as a monster movie. - 4:3 EDIT

Recommended 83% How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) (2015) The length of the work results in a lean, effective and moving look at class divisions, sexuality and politics in Thailand. - 4:3 EDIT
