63% Suspiria (2018) This isn't some serious comment on feminism, or motherhood or anything else, this is a film so absorbed in the concept of its own greatness, that it loses sight of its own theme, until it withers and dies on screen before us.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

94% Room (2015) In Room, [director Lenny] Abrahamson has created a masterful oddity; a world that's spatially confined, but emotionally limitless and arresting.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) [Director Lynne] Ramsey creates a highly subjective experience with her visuals largely mirroring the rocky instability of Joaquin's Veteran Joe.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

91% Phantom Thread (2018) It's tantamount to cinematic transubstantiation and Anderson and Day-Lewis deliver, turning blood to bread and water to wine, leaving us all but paralyzed.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 safely derives from the ancestral roots of Ridley Scott's iconic visionary opus without compromising its value in any way.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

87% It Comes At Night (2017) Shults has crafted a beautifully intelligent psychological thriller, where the most monstrous and horrific thing is ourselves.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

66% Alien: Covenant (2017) Alien: Covenant is half Prometheus sequel/ half Alien prequel and in many ways, it feels like a missed opportunity, but it's probably the best Alien film this side of Alien Resurrection or Alien 3; so for now at least I'm happy to chew the fat.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

79% Without Name (2016) Finnegan is clearly a filmmaker of tremendous capacity and vision, and even when [Without Name] doesn't entirely work, he doesn't fail in teasing the promise of his visionary talent.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

46% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) While Dolan's previous film Mommy (2014) was hailed a masterpiece, somehow his follow-up, for me at least, doesn't live up to that kind of hype. It's not exactly surprising that the critical reaction so far has been mixed to say the least.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

93% Neruda (2016) Larraín doesn't water the content down for the audience; instead, he manages to keep it potent, and, what's further still, accessible.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

91% La La Land (2016) La La Land offers a warming, renewing sense of magic and hope in the world, the perfect antidote to all the chaos of the present. In the end it's an unapologetically bona fide love affair with love and dreams.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

73% Miles Ahead (2016) Miles Ahead is a picture that's totally self-aware, wearing its wholesome references on its sleeve. ‐ Film Ireland Magazine

89% My Name Is Emily (2017) Simon Fitzmaurice lovingly creates a deeply personal film about challenging the boundaries of reality. ‐ Film Ireland Magazine

95% Eye In The Sky (2016) Mirren and Rickman bring real authority to the proceedings, while Jeremy Northam is effective as a conflicted cabinet minister.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

75% The BFG (2016) Every time Spielberg reaches for the stars with The BFG, they just pass right through his fingers.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

61% The Light Between Oceans (2016) The Light Between Oceans firmly establishes Cianfrance's deep mastery of the craft, and secures his reputation as a visionary filmmaker with a delicate cinematic touch.‐ Film Ireland Magazine

79% American Honey (2016) American Honey is spellbinding, spell-breaking cinema, a honey trap for the senses too seductive to refuse.‐ Film Ireland Magazine
