4/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) What's most impressive is Assayas's determination not to play by the rules: this is a story at odds with accepted formula and is all the more disturbing for it.‐ Sky Movies

85% Lion (2016) With a story this strong, you can't really go wrong and director Garth Davis provides a sure guiding hand with Saroo's barely believable story unfolding largely in chronological order.‐ Sky Movies

2/5 47% Free State of Jones (2016) The film would have been stronger if Ross had focussed on one aspect of the life of Newton - whose piety is never questioned - instead of trying to cram most of it into feature length.‐ Sky Movies

3/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) It's efficient but soulless and relies on well-choreographed action sequences to maintain the attention rather than any effort to flesh out the characters led by Denzel Washington's monosyllabic lawman Sam Chisholm.‐ Sky Movies
