4/5 91% The Other Side of Hope (Toivon tuolla puolen) (2017) Hope bares all Kaurismäki's trademark fingerprints: a vintage colour palette; a technophobic 21st century setting; deadpan humour; still, single-shot scenes.‐ The Skinny

3/5 58% Urban Hymn (2017) Urban Hymn's strength lies in its strong female leads, particularly Laughland's visceral turn as the volatile Leanne.‐ The Skinny

2/5 60% Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014) Nymphomaniac's clunkiness and desperation to shock could be forgiven if it wasn't so uniformly dull. With a talent such as Lars, it really is unforgivable.‐ The Skinny
