50% The Beat Beneath My Feet (2016) The Beat Beneath My Feet offers a fond reminder of why we all loved Luke and introduces a bright young talent in its lead. ‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 No Score Yet Low Tide (2012) Blanchard captures our attention and doesn't let it go as we follow him from supermarket to care home (where he helps his mother do her job) and riverbed to slaughterhouse. ‐ CineVue
Posted Oct 14, 2016
2/5 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Cianfrance's mesmeric eye for heartbreak is dulled here. The waters are muddied and the pull of The Light Between Oceans falters, despite some fine cinematography. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/5 72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) This is a finely crafted, visually sumptuous film with fine performances all round. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 8, 2016
1/5 45% Brimstone (2016) A hellish horror story that is far too pleased to gaze on the suffering of women. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 8, 2016
4/5 88% Jackie (2016) Jackie is Larrain's first foray into English-language film and his first attempt to tackle non-Chilean political issues. The result is supremely accomplished and fascinating. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 7, 2016
2/5 46% The Bad Batch (2016) Despite good work done by some of the cast this post-apocalyptic cannibal tale wanders in the desert for far too long. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 7, 2016
4/5 100% One More Time With Feeling (2016) It's a beautiful tribute to a lost child, and to love overriding death. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 6, 2016
3/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Like Saving Private Ryan or Unbroken, this true story is so incredible that it seems like something Dreamworks would make up ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 5, 2016
4/5 89% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) [Brady Corbet] makes his directorial feature debut with The Childhood of a Leader, and what an explosive and thrilling debut it is. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Jul 18, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet The Student ((M)uchenik) (2016) This is not your usual hormonal angst, but a full-blown religious breakdown. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 23, 2016
3/5 92% Toni Erdmann (2016) This is a tender and funny film, which suffers from being overly long, but Ade is a skilled craftswoman and gifted screenwriter. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 23, 2016
1/5 12% The Last Face (2016) This hotchpotch of a story, which lacks clarity and sense, is almost unwatchable. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 20, 2016
2/5 57% The Neon Demon (2016) Hugely disappointing as there is a brilliant film lurking inside Refn, but this bloody mess is not it. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 20, 2016
4/5 100% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2016) Barras has bravely tackled an almost taboo subject and made it palatable and manageable for children and adults alike. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 19, 2016
3/5 67% Personal Shopper (2017) An intriguing, sometimes daft and occasionally terrifying supernatural drama. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 18, 2016
2/5 78% American Honey (2016) Teeming with amazing shots there's no denying that Andrea Arnold has a wonderful eye - but these visual delights are not enough to hold this lengthy and ultimately tedious film together. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 96% Paterson (2016) An ode to Paterson and to poetry itself. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 89% Loving (2016) Jeff Nichols is on a roll this year with two releases so far, Midnight Special and now Loving. Will quantity be at the cost of quality? Resoundingly not. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 18, 2016
4/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) In depicting the disenfranchised and financially broken, Mackenzie is more successful than either Andrea Arnold or Jodie Foster, who both dealt with similar themes in their Cannes offerings. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 18, 2016
3/5 82% Julieta (2016) Almodovar has toned down the melodrama and ditched the nonsense to create a mature and restrained movie. ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted May 14, 2016
4/5 94% Sieranevada (2016) Following The Death of Mr Lazarescu, Puiu's latest film benefits from a fine ensemble cast and an evocative depiction of a family, and a country, dealing with the sudden wake of tragedy. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 13, 2016
4/5 92% I, Daniel Blake (2016) Ken Loach returns to Cannes with a bleak, brilliant, unflinching and heartfelt take on a family under the dark cloud of austerity. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 13, 2016
4/5 57% Money Monster (2016) A solid screenplay, an engaging cast and a precise directorial control of tone, Money Maker is a riveting exploration in contemporary society. ‐ HeyUGuys

3/5 70% Café Society (2016) It is clear that whilst reaching the twilight years of his career, Allen is still not completely on the wane. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 11, 2016
2/5 73% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) From here on in, we are uncertain just how much of what Vincent sees and perceives is real and how much is a figment of his disturbed and frazzled imagination. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Feb 19, 2016
43% Looking for Grace (2015) A tender and bittersweet drama about the vagaries of life and the consequences of our actions. ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted Sep 14, 2015

3/5 71% Remember (2016) Egoyan is back on form with this entertaining and intelligent Holocaust thriller. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 14, 2015
89% A Bigger Splash (2016) The film has much to offer, primarily Ralph Fiennes, who could walk away with a prize for his dazzling bravura turn. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 9, 2015
2/5 33% Equals (2016) Uneven and dull, Stewart and Hoult are faint points of lights in this dire dystopian sci-fi. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 7, 2015
3/5 69% The Danish Girl (2015) Tom Hooper may not have created a masterpiece, but this is a visually attractive film about a fascinating subject. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 5, 2015

4/5 96% Spotlight (2015) Uncovers the dark and sinister. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 4, 2015
3/5 74% Black Mass (2015) Fascinating and repellant, but nothing new. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Sep 4, 2015
4/5 90% Dheepan (2016) Like scrambled eggs or sex, messy can also be good, and Audiard's audacity and bravura filmmaking skills mean that though Dheepan has to break a lot of eggs, Audiard has created a tasty dish. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 28, 2015
3/5 80% Macbeth (2015) Kurzel has created a visually-striking hell that is all of Macbeth's own making. ‐ HeyUGuys

Posted May 18, 2015
4/5 82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) Dark, yet there are plenty of comic moments, usually thanks to Cassel, revelling in his umpteenth sexual deviant role. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted May 14, 2015
3/5 40% She's Funny That Way (2015) This may not be up to the standards of that wonderful age, but it is a good reminder of all those great movies and Bogdanovich has created a humorous homage. ‐ HeyUGuys
Posted Oct 2, 2014
2/5 31% Cymbeline (2015) If nothing else, this film made me want to see more Shakespeare and if it has this effect on audiences, then Almereyda is to be commended. ‐ HeyUGuys
