4/5 100% Nas: Time Is Illmatic (2014) One9 opts for celebration over cultural discourse. It proves a minor shortcoming when you allow yourself to revel in the raw energy of Time Is Illmatic's predictably perfect soundtrack. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 68% Magic Magic (2013) With every intention to be a tale of cerebral turmoil, this endless slew of catechisms is less of a high-brow assessment of the psyche and more of a monobrowed headache. Driving this sallow snore, however, is a score of budding talent. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 50% The Zero Theorem (2014) With the resolute importance of Brazil's world eclipsing his vision, Gilliam has again failed to escape from his own allegorical fantasies. Don't call it a comeback. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 81% Lamb Of God's As The Palaces Burn (2014) Metal music may remain a stigmatised subculture, but As the Palaces Burn proves that there's more tender humanity coursing through its artists and supporters than what the stereotypes imply. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 64% Pandora's Promise (2013) In Pandora's Promise, Stone delivers some harsh home truths on the importance of nuclear power for our energy-drunk future. While it does make for uncomfortable viewing, the proof seems very much in the plutonium. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 93% The Pervert's Guide To Ideology (2013) Delivers a full-bodied, genuinely humorous account of ambiguity and austerity. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 46% InRealLife (2013) Each social quandary investigated in InRealLife screams for greater attention. But it's with this that Kidron's strong journalistic flair falters. - CineVue EDIT

4/5 95% Kuma (2012) Bolstered by a predictably chilling finale, Dağ has delivered a film equidistant between modesty and hostility. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 79% Out in the Dark (2013) Finding love across borders has all the potential to be a downright disastrous concoction. Yet, the believable constraints Jacob and Aloni's characters carry ultimately save Mayer's Out in the Dark, making this a solemnly weighty debut. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 81% Something in the Air (2013) Something in the Air wobbles endlessly; not only around disposable panning shots of well-spotted locations, but whether the students' actions are justifiable or just plain childish folly. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 28% Reincarnated (2013) For a film endeavouring to chronicle a 41-year-old stoner attempting to soberly walk down the path of enlightenment, Capper's Reincarnated ultimately loses track in the presence of stardom. - CineVue EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Le guetteur (The Lookout) (2012) A Parisian pileup of supersonic, neo-thriller folly. - CineVue EDIT

3/5 77% Big Boys Gone Bananas!* (2012) Big Boys Gone Bananas!*, whilst perceivable as a tad narcissistic on the Gertten front, undeniably touches on subject matters of unavoidable importance. - CineVue EDIT
