3/5 70% Gifted (2017) As solid and watchable as Evans is, it's not enough to lift Gifted above movie-of-the-week territory.‐ The List

2/5 24% From the Land of the Moon (Mal de pierres) (2016) Even the captivating presence of Marion Cotillard can't save From the Land of the Moon from succumbing to embarrassing histrionics.‐ The List

No Score Yet West of the Jordan River (2017) A compelling snapshot of a region desperate for change, but still in danger of being suffocated by both its history and political inertia.‐ Screen International

2/5 11% Spark: A Space Tail (2017) It's hard to know for whom it's been made; while very young kids may appreciate its visual bombast in short doses, older children will likely find themselves tiring of both its charmless, outdated animation and the dull, underbaked narrative.‐ The List

No Score Yet They (2017) A mature and moving study of childhood, growth and identity.‐ Screen International

4/5 46% Spaceship (2016) The mystery of a supposed alien abduction combines with the potency of adolescence in Alex Taylor's striking debut, which turns wilful narrative ambiguity and visual experimentation into a sharp-eyed study of the modern teen experience.‐ The List

60% Dabka (2017) A solid take on a fascinating story.‐ Screen International

3/5 82% A Moving Image (2017) A small film with big ambitions and an even bigger heart, A Moving Image has a message that goes beyond its limited scope.‐ The List

3/5 40% Aftermath (2017) Aftermath becomes a study of grief that, despite occasional moments of mawkishness, is anchored by raw honesty.‐ The List

2/5 73% The Void (2017) While this old-school creature feature may not win over non-horror fans, genre aficionados will undoubtedly find much to enjoy.‐ The List

4/5 93% All This Panic (2017) A portrait of adolescence composed in vibrant colour and astute detail.‐ The List

No Score Yet Tormentero (2017) While Tormentero's narrative meanders, it finds a more focused voice in its striking visuals.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
80% La Barracuda (2017) As painful memories are unearthed, and loyalties are tested, directing duo Julia Halperin and Jason Cortlund effectively mine the fractured family dynamic for maximum dramatic impact.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
100% I Am Another You (2017) Begins as fly-on-the-wall travelography but soon becomes something much more intimate and eye-opening.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2017
80% Us and Them (2017) While Us and Them may be simplistic and outlandish in approach, there's no arguing with the rampant injustice onto which it shines such a harsh light.‐ Screen International

3/5 67% The Chamber (2016) The Chamber is an undeniably tense watch with a subversive, gut-punch ending. While not plumbing any real genre depths, it should prove a solid and lucrative calling card for its clearly talented debut director.‐ The List

4/5 93% A Quiet Passion (2017) A Quiet Passion becomes both a celebration of the creative spirit, and a poignant reminder of its fragility.‐ The List

3/5 87% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Doss's truly Herculean endeavours rise above the clichés, providing depth of drama and character.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2017
No Score Yet Motherland (2017) If Motherland has a message beyond raising awareness of the plight faced by millions of Filipino women, and the ongoing debate around the country's controversial Reproductive Health Act, it's that life goes resolutely on.‐ Screen International
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2017
4/5 100% The Young Offenders (2016) Despite its convenient Hollywood ending, The Young Offenders remains defiantly home-grown, grass roots cinema; and is all the more enjoyable for it.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2017
2/5 33% Operation Chromite (2016) A mix of gung-ho action and heavy-handed patriotic pride, the point of South Korean war film Operation Chromite may be somewhat lost in translation for western audiences.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/5 100% The Black Hen (Kalo Pothi) (2015) A moving portrait of the effects of war on ordinary lives.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2016
3/5 60% The Incident (2015) Both story and characters are ethereal to the point of frustration, with no backstory or detail to bring any real context to the drama that unfolds.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2016
4/5 73% You've Been Trumped Too (2016) As a portrait of a man, it's ugly; as an insight into modern politics, it's both astute and damning.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2016
3/5 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Despite the talent involved, The Light Between Oceans is mawkish when it should be moving.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2016
4/5 90% Into the Inferno (2016) While Herzog - whose longstanding passion for volcanoes is palpable, and infectious - is never anything less than respectful to these individuals, an undeniable sense of whimsy runs through his hugely entertaining voiceover.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2016
5/5 93% Arrival (2016) It celebrates the very best traits of humanity ... while also encouraging us to confront life's biggest questions. This is filmmaking at its most powerful and profound.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
4/5 90% Elle (2016) While the film proves a challenging watch it ultimately works because it recognises, and fully embraces, the fact that there is not one stock response to such an assault.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2016
3/5 95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) The Handmaiden is part romance, part gothic fairy tale and part psychosexual chamber piece, an initially beguiling film whose heavy-handed love scenes work to undermine its dramatic power.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2016
4/5 99% Under The Shadow (2016) Fraught with tension and rife with intelligent insight.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Sep 26, 2016
4/5 95% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) With its abundance of archive video and still footage, together with a host of new interviews, it's an undeniably glorious watch.‐ The List

3/5 66% Anthropoid (2016) A film that, while fairly traditional in its approach, is a fitting homage to these extraordinary men.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2016
1/5 11% Cell (2016) The curse of the Stephen King adaptation strikes once again in Cell, an insipid and often ludicrous adaptation of the author's 2006 tech-horror novel.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/5 83% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) Such apocalyptic events are nothing new on-screen, but Norwegian director Roar Uthaug imbues his film with rather more grit and texture than formulaic Hollywood efforts like 2012 and San Andreas.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2016
1/5 25% Suicide Squad (2016) While it might be good to be bad, Suicide Squad is just plain awful.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2016
2/5 75% Traders (2015) While it may be a film of commendable high ambition, ultimately Traders is just another grim urban fairy tale about the ridiculous games of deeply unlikeable men.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2016
2/5 82% Chevalier (2016) Watching these men engage in one foolish game after another is at first mildly amusing then quickly dull ...‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2016
4/5 92% Queen of Earth (2015) Queen of Earth plays like a horror. Yet, at its heart it is a devastating story of depression and its impact.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2016
4/5 95% Remainder (2015) Remainder is a strikingly original, hypnotic film and, by the time it reaches its bold head-scratcher of a denouement, one that leaves an indelible mark.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2016
4/5 73% The Keeping Room (2015) A film that speaks to the universal realities of the female experience.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2016
4/5 76% The Daughter (2017) The Daughter eschews melodrama to become a searing, poignant and devastating study of the seismic power of betrayal.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 23, 2016
2/5 81% These Final Hours (2015) Hilditch's apocalyptic vision is striking in its visuals, bold in its bleakness and completely unoriginal in its core narrative.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 4, 2016
2/5 46% Knight of Cups (2016) Knight of Cups becomes the very thing it claims to satirise, a gilded chalice that reveals itself to be an entirely empty vessel.‐ The List
Read More | Posted May 4, 2016
4/5 95% The Jungle Book (2016) Favreau has achieved the near impossible, managing to stay true to both Kipling's tales and Disney's revered 1967 animation, while offering something entirely new.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2016
4/5 66% Nasty Baby (2015) Silva succeeds in keeping his characters sympathetic and their relationships honest, if unconventional, and his approach is bolstered by some terrific performances.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2016
4/5 64% Black Mountain Poets (2015) The cast is brilliant across the board, particularly Richard Elis as the uber-Welsh Gareth, but Black Mountain Poets belongs to Lowe and Wells.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2016
4/5 100% Court (2015) Court is a masterful piece of social cinema that rewards audience investment and marks Tamhane out as a filmmaker to watch.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2016
2/5 72% The Ones Below (2016) Aims for the claustrophobic chills of Rosemary's Baby, but comes closer to the outlandish bunny boiler camp of Fatal Attraction.‐ The List
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2016
4/5 97% The Survivalist (2017) The Survivalist is a stunning, thought-provoking film that, despite its bleak focus, has a surprisingly uplifting message about the power of human connection.‐ The List
