Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
86% Contemporary Color "The moments when Contemporary Colour diverts from the onstage performances and moves to abstraction are the brightest. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Jun 24, 2016
87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Linklater's 1980 is a world that's so perfect in its contours, so detailed in its realisation, and quite delightful to inhabit for two hours. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Jun 24, 2016
93% Slow West (2015) "Slow West utilises a massive arsenal of cinematic techniques shunned by most commercial filmmakers, and shows that an arthouse film can hold both tension and big ideas at once. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Jan 1, 2016
39% Strangerland (2015) "Strangerland unassumingly goes way beyond your usual art-house fare to the heart of a scared and scary colonised country. " ‐ Junkee

No Score Yet Paradise (Ma dar behesht) "Paradise plays out like an observational documentary, but with the loose narrative structure of a feature film. We feel we're snooping on a microcosm of a much larger, shadier Kafka-esque machine. " ‐ Junkee

63% Haemoo (Sea Fog) (2016) "A high IQ, super-tense thriller from Korea about a people-smuggling mission gone wrong -- with a super-creepy spiritual undercurrent. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Nov 11, 2015
71% Schneider vs. Bax "The film is so funny, so dark, so tightly wound, and its level of craftsmanship so high, that it draws no line between entertainment and substance. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Nov 11, 2015
94% Right Now, Wrong Then (2016) "It's bittersweet and hopeful and formally inventive; the kind of film I just feel happy about when I think of it. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Nov 11, 2015
80% Entertainment (2015) "It is devastating, and beautiful: a sad indictment of a society filled with alienated individuals trying and failing to connect with each other; and a very pure audio-visual cinematic experience that asks to be felt rather than intellectualised. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Nov 11, 2015
86% Gayby Baby (2016) "Gayby is destined to succeed as a social conscience film of this very moment in political time, and as a strong contemporary piece of documentary filmmaking in and of itself. " ‐ Junkee
Posted Aug 21, 2015
96% The Look of Silence (2015) "This is not an easy watch -- for a political film, it's deeply emotional and morally fraught. But Oppenheimer is doing important work: he is teaching us all to see again. " ‐ Junkee

2 60% Love Story "The directive isn't realism or even true love. It's cleverness & kitsch of the stripey socks & frosted cupcake variety. It's all pretty meta: in these post-everything times, Love Story takes the idea of a film within a film & rewrites it on the fly. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted May 4, 2015
5 89% Mommy (2015) "Like so much cinema, Mommy functions at a gut level - you either instinctively get it or you don't. As to whether or not it amounts to much more than a French-Canadian, ADHD-style Instagram film, I'm unconvinced but fascinated as to Dolan's next move. " ‐ Concrete Playground

8 No Score Yet The Darkside " This film may be in limited release in theatres, festivals and galleries, but it deserves to be seen by everyone. The Aboriginal ancestors of Australia are still here and they're living on in The Darkside. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted May 3, 2015
5 60% Samba (2015) "It's the filmic equivalent of Cafe del Mar easy listening: it's watchable. The direction and music and cinematography are so seamlessly invisible, and the lead performances so natural, the film appears to be directed on autopilot. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted May 3, 2015
4/5 96% Enough Said (2013) "A rom-com that's actually, miraculously both romantic and comedic. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Nov 18, 2013
2/10 6% Paranoia (2013) "So cliched and tiresome, it could be a minor work of cinemasochistic genius. Also, Harrison Ford appears to be possessed by a necromancer. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Oct 15, 2013
8/10 85% The Turning (2015) "Who knew that the next great Australian film would actually be a constellation of 17 smaller ones? It's not easy viewing but it is beautiful viewing. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Oct 15, 2013
8/10 67% Elysium (2013) "Blomkamp delivers blockbusters based in empathy and political smarts that actually aspire to be more than insulting filmic pollution. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Oct 15, 2013
8/10 91% Mystery Road (2014) "A new classic with a rich tide of ideas unraveling and washing around the edges...no easy explanations, no Hollywood signposts, just a genre piece of great complexity and troubling beauty. An important film, a stunningly entertaining one, and a great one. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Oct 15, 2013
3 51% Thérèse (2013) "An austere, sombre character study that aims for restraint but more often hits dour. Momentarily lifts off in a handful of beautifully shot dream sequences where Therese acts her inner violence, but these respites are not quite enough to shake the fog. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Jul 17, 2013
4/5 89% In the House (2013) "Has the slow-pulsing vertigo of a psychological thriller & the twists of an elaborate melodrama, but to reduce it to these labels is glib. Caustic & funny but never misanthropic. A study of the ways people actually live, rather than how we assume they do. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Jul 17, 2013
3 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) "The Elizabethan speech rarely totally flows, the modern setting jars and not all the actors convince. It's as slick as you'd expect, if not a little forgettable. A frothy passion project. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Jul 17, 2013
4/5 78% A Late Quartet (2012) "What could be construed merely as a music film is in fact a tightly wound, deliberate and sensitive depiction of creative, platonic and romantic relationships on the edge of destruction. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Mar 11, 2013
4.5/5 89% Bernie (2012) "Black curbs his most irritating tendencies to give an endearing and convincing performance. An affectionate, intelligent ode to the oddity of small-town America. " ‐ Concrete Playground

2/5 90% Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir "There's no doubt Polanski is a major artist, and his fans will probably get a lot out of his recollections, but don't expect any rigorous attention to the ethics of documentary-making. This is a personal exercise in public atonement. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Feb 28, 2013
3/5 35% Knocked for Six (Save Your Legs) "Cowell and Curry give endearing performances as man-boys who are forcefully and finally shoved out of adolescence and into adulthood at the ripe old age of thirty-five. As a lighthearted, nostalgia-drenched film, Save Your Legs! hits a six. " ‐ Concrete Playground
Posted Feb 28, 2013
2/5 54% I Give It a Year (2013) "Ultimately the film refuses to bust out of the conventional rom com template. Its plot is face-punchingly implausible, its characters straitjacketed by stereotype, and its humour terminally planted in extreme awkwardness and feeble frat-boy crassness. " ‐ Concrete Playground
