4/5 87% The Report (2019) The Report is engaged, political filmmaking, featuring one of Adam Driver's best performances to date. - The Skinny EDIT

72% Harriet (2019) It's a disappointing and formulaic portrait. Erivo - and Harriet Tubman - deserve a better vehicle. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 96% The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) A crowd-pleasing comedy with a brilliant cast at their comedic best, but you can't help wondering if it would have made for a more satisfying TV series than movie. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 99% Honeyland (2019) Honeyland is surprising in its ability to sink its hooks into the viewer, its fly-on-the-wall approach allowing action to unfold in front of our eyes. - The Skinny EDIT

83% How to Build a Girl (2019) Despite narrative flaws, it's hard not to find Giedroyc's film charming - a bit like looking back at old school photos of yourself. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2019
73% Proxima (2019) Green is at a career-best as the stoic Sarah, simultaneously determined and on the edge of breaking. So often hamming it up in Tim Burton roles, you forget just how exceptionally subtle she can be. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 85% Luz (2019) At times frustrating and throughout bewildering, Luz is nevertheless a restrained, hypnotic jigsaw of a film and a thoroughly distinctive debut. - The List EDIT

4/5 95% The World Is Yours (Le monde ou rien) (2018) This frantic joyride through a modern, fractured Europe manages to be very funny, very stylish, and, surprisingly, very sweet. - The List EDIT

2/5 74% All Creatures Here Below (2019) Occasional moments between Gillan and Dastmalchian feel genuinely tender, but All Creatures Here Below suffers from unrelenting, one-dimensional moralising. - The List EDIT

3/5 77% Knives and Skin (2019) There is too much crammed into the film's 111-minute runtime and as a result everything is shiny, slippery, neon surface with little depth. - SciFiNow EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Disappearance (2017) Despite its narrative problems, Disappearance is a bold statement on the state of healthcare in Iran and the lack of agency women have over their bodies. - The Skinny EDIT

3/5 79% Never Steady, Never Still (2018) Kathleen Hepburn makes her debut with Never Steady, Never Still, and her skill behind the camera is evident as she captures the Canadian landscape with beautiful delicacy. However, the film falls apart in its subject matter - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 100% The Islands and the Whales (2017) The Islands and the Whales is a sensitive portrait of the Faroe Islands that neither romanticises nor explicitly criticises a community's culture. - The Skinny EDIT

5/5 88% Annihilation (2018) Annihilation is an ambitious and intellectual film that matches its rich themes of environmentalism, memory, and self-destruction with visceral horror and an emotional sucker punch of an ending. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 89% Pin Cushion (2018) Despite its dreamlike qualities, as the film progresses, both Pin Cushion and Haywood show their teeth. Bullying, sexuality, ostracisation, and the social other are themes which Pin Cushion explores to an unnerving and violent end. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 95% Ghost Town Anthology (2019) Ghost Town Anthology's atmospheric unreality is undoubtedly its greatest strength. - SciFiNow EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
2/5 79% Light of My life (2019) Pitched as a story about a girl, Light Of My Life is only concerned with one man's saviour complex, a patriarch's journey to safeguard his daughter's virtue. Everything else is background noise. - SciFiNow EDIT

40% Vita & Virginia (2019) The film never delves beneath its surfaces. - Sight and Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2019
69% Beautiful Boy (2018) As a narrative Beautiful Boy falters, but as a character study of a father and son relationship it excels. - Sight and Sound EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2019
2/5 84% Disobedience (2018) Disobedience's lesbian lovers lack passion, and more frustratingly, they become increasingly passive. - The Skinny EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2018
2/5 57% Touch Me Not (2019) Pintilie's film has nothing but good intentions - to hold up all sex as normal sex - but Touch Me Not's coldness ironically blocks any intimacy between film and audience. - The Skinny EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2018
3/5 87% First Man (2018) First Man is a technically accomplished story of how far one man will go to avoid handling his emotions, dressed up as the story of mankind's mission to the moon. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 79% Halloween (2018) Myers isn't the scariest thing in town anymore. Instead it's Laurie's paranoia and alienation that is the film's real horror. - The Skinny EDIT

4/5 75% Hotel Mumbai (2019) Hotel Mumbai is an excellent, white-knuckle thriller - and an unlikely crowd-pleaser. - Guardian EDIT

4/5 86% The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018) Desiree Akhavan has spoken at length about growing up without a queer John Hughes film, and the influence of 80s teen cinema is all over ... Cameron Post. - The Skinny EDIT

89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Pulls the rug out from under the hyper-masculine action genre. - Another Gaze EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2018
2/5 70% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) An uneven film that's neither as sexy nor as smart as it thinks it is - one part a nastier Fifty Shades of Grey and one part an introduction to Freud. - The Skinny EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
4/5 96% Zama (2018) Martel masterfully creates a vivid, sensuous, and unbearable world from which Zama and the audience can't wait to escape. Yet we also can't seem to take our eyes off it. - The Skinny EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
4/5 91% Beast (2018) An exploration of just how flimsy the boundary is between man and animal, Beast is a thriller with a nasty bite. - The Skinny EDIT

97% Mudbound (2017) While it occasionally threatens to get away from itself with its numerous subplots, Dee Rees's controlled direction gives Mudbound a focused narrative trajectory. - Another Gaze EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
92% On the Beach at Night Alone (Bamui haebyun-eoseo honja) (2017) On the Beach Alone At Night is not about plot or even about action. Instead the film is a portrait of the mourning process that follows lost love. Like the sea, which bookends the film, Young-hee's emotions come in waves. - Another Gaze EDIT
