Valentino (1977)

"Valentino's sometimes controversial rise to the top of the Hollywood A-list provided Russell with a chance to make a Dionysian extravaganza about the new gods of the twentieth century and the industry's salacious early days. " ‐ CineVue

We Are Your Friends (2015)

"Set next to Mia Hansen-Løve's vastly superior and authentic Eden, We Are Your Friends is The Birdie Song juxtaposed with Daft Punk's One More Time." ‐ CineVue

Mr. Holmes (2015)

"At the heart of Mr. Holmes (2015) lies that old John Ford maxim about printing the legend. Bill Condon's film is an investigation into the trouble caused by creative licence and bending the truth. " ‐ CineVue

The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015)

"A third plunge into the transgressive cesspool has seen director Six make a film so artfully bad that, while entirely admirable, the decision to go full-throttle loco weakens the effect and impact, overall. " ‐ CineVue

Wild Tales (2015)

"As an anthology film, it's pretty much perfect. Not a single story lets the side down and there is a consistently high level of storytelling. " ‐ CineVue

El Desierto (The Desert) (2013)

"Behl's film trades in subtle shifts and quiet emotional pain that builds up to an irreversible act of violence. Imagine if Albert Camus or Jean-Paul Sartre had penned a novel featuring the living dead as a backdrop to philosophical musings on human nature" ‐ CineVue

Rabid (1979)

"If Shivers was intended as a grotesque comedy, Rabid is pitched more as a Gothic tragedy." ‐ CineVue

Re-Animator (1985)

"The film's tone is akin to Lucio Fulci meeting The Three Stooges in a morgue. There will be blood. Lots of it." ‐ Starburst

Breaking the Waves (1996)

"Starring Emily Watson, in what surely ranks as one of the most remarkable big screen debuts, Breaking the Waves (1996), like most classics, appears to have imprinted into its fabric an essential and resolute splendour. " ‐ CineVue
