15/20 100% Gurrumul (2017) Though very much a respectful and admiring portrait of its subject, Gurrumul is not a hagiography.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

12.50/20 95% Menashe (2017) Menashe Lustig's performance here is strong, in a subtly understated way, and there are a few - but very few - mildly emotionally resonant scenes. ‐ FILMINK (Australia)

Read More | Posted Jan 10, 2018
17/20 91% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) ...a rattling good yarn with a complex plot and (rarity of rarities in mainstream cinema) a great ending.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

91% Land of Mine (Under Sandet) (2017) Land Of Mine is... gripping, well-acted by all, and a good, strong tale well told. It's also that uncommon thing: a movie that touches on the theme of redemption without descending into bathos or inanity.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

78% Where to Invade Next (2016) Despite the odd moment of dewy-eyed banality, it's really well made and researched, proffers a swag of interesting facts (some mindboggling, some touching, some inspiring, and some ghastly) and is definitely worth seeing.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

95% Eye In The Sky (2016) Eye In The Sky is sporadically sentimental, unrealistic, and overburdened with intrusive soundtrack music. But it gets you in, and it's suspenseful, claustrophobic, and a fairly unusual take on the counter-terrorism sub-genre.‐ FILMINK (Australia)

38% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) Grimsby is a lot of fun in its determinedly tasteless way.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2016
44% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Pride And Prejudice And Zombies stays watchable enough, because - for all its conceptual absurdity - it's mostly played straight rather than for laughs. It's not very good, but nor is it cringingly bad.‐ FILMINK (Australia)
