      Somebody I Used To Know (2023) The film spends too much time upfront establishing its quirkiness and delving into familiar tropes to be labelled great, but stick with it, and the talented cast delivers some exciting ideas worthy of deeper exploration. - That Shelf

      Make Me Famous (2021) Make Me Famous suggests that Brezinski might just be a one-of-a-kind. A unique artist that was a pure product of a very specific movement and moment in time. - That Shelf

      For Love (2021) Though For Love leaves audiences to wrestle within themselves for an answer, the film is not without hope. - That Shelf

      The Lost King (2022) Not even the team behind 2014’s excellent Philomena can add anything that the original story didn’t already have. It could be that this is a story better served by documentarians that could let the history speak for itself. - That Shelf

      Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022) Johnson turns the volume up to eleven with his follow-up, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and manages to deliver one fine rollercoaster of a film that is every bit as entertaining and refreshing as its predecessor. - That Shelf

      One Fine Morning (2022) Given the critical acclaim of Hansen-Løve’s last big-screen effort, it’s unsurprising that critical and audience expectations were high for her next effort but this lyrical, beautiful film lives up to them entirely. - That Shelf

      Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) ... what it manages is a solidly entertaining and fun, if too goofy, Marvel adventure that won’t count among the studios best but is still satisfying enough for cinematic summer escapism. - That Shelf

      Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) It doesn’t cleanly land all of its many boundary-pushing attempts, but director Sam Raimi truly goes for broke. - That Shelf

      Scarborough (2021) Scarborough may seem like a sad film and it certainly breaks your heart numerous times but there are so many moments of resilience, kindness and love for each and from their communities that youre left with a feeling of hope and positivity. - That Shelf

      Death on the Nile (2022) Often Branaghs indulgences as a filmmaker can be quite endearing and entertaining but, unfortunately, they have quite the opposite effect here. Where Branagh could suggest or imply, he straight out bashes the audience over the head with an idea. - That Shelf

      The Power of the Dog (2021) Campion is at the top of her game too. Her unflinchingly lush lens and her impressive ability to articulate even the most complex shades of human emotion mean Savage's novel could not have landed in better hands. - That Shelf

      Becoming Cousteau (2021) There's so much ground here for the documentary to cover and so many resources to plumb for details and information. Given that, the film does very well in picking and choosing deftly and effectively. - That Shelf
