      Noise (2007) Louise Keller Much emphasis has been placed on the sound design, ably created by Emma Bortignon, but after a while, the constant sounds irritate and detract from the story.

      Noise (2007) Andrew L. Urban Noise is an interesting work, notable for its lack of hysterics in dealing with appalling crimes and yet insightful of them.

      Blinded by the Light (2019) Louise Keller Posters of David Beckham in Bend it Like Beckham are exchanged for those of Bruce Springsteen in Gurinder Chadha's Blinded by the Light, a likeable but derivative coming of age story about dreams, anger and building bridges.

      Gemini Man (2019) Louise Keller Assassins, clones and spectacular locations are the key ingredients of Gemini Man, a 3D action packed sci-fi thriller from Ang Lee that delivers on action but is short on thrills.

      Joker (2019) Louise Keller Edgy and darkly disturbing, Joker takes flight on the wings of a sensational performance by Joaquin Phoenix.

      Ad Astra (2019) Louise Keller The relationship between father and son is the nucleus of this potent drama in which the vast scale of the universe juxtaposes the intangible complexities of the heart.

      Dragged Across Concrete (2018) Andrew L. Urban Clever filmmaking.
      Posted Aug 14, 2019
      The Nightingale (2018) Louise Keller At once artfully cinematic and thoroughly commercial, The Nightingale reaffirms Jennifer Kent's post-The Babadook credentials as a natural born filmmaker. Her storytelling is as acute as her sense of visualisation and her cast delivers for her in spades.
      Posted Aug 08, 2019
      Late Night (2019) Louise Keller Late Night is smart, sassy and funny. Just like its leading lady, Emma Thompson, who devours the role of late-night TV host and spits out crackle and pop.
      Posted Aug 07, 2019
      Palm Beach (2019) Louise Keller Rachel Ward's film is exactly what you expect: a good-hearted get-together of old friends and family when resentments flair, flailing relationships are revealed and secrets demand to be heard. But it aches for some grit.

      Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) Louise Keller In the company of fading, heavy-drinking TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his wild-card stunt-double buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt), the film is blackly funny and ignites a splashy, violent ending, soaked in Tarantino-esque bravura.
      Posted Jul 25, 2019
      The Lion King (2019) Louise Keller Technically brilliant with its hyperreal visuals, there is something mawkish about Jon Favreau's remake of The Lion King.
      Posted Jul 17, 2019
      Yesterday (2019) Andrew L. Urban They are still a river of great songs, nostalgia notwithstanding, and The Beatles can only be forgotten in a parallel universe of Richard Curtis' imagination, as in Yesterday.
      Posted Jun 20, 2019
      Yesterday (2019) Louise Keller It is original and audacious, but the film never soars as I had hoped - one idea is stretched to the limit. Although, what's not to like when hearing 15 of the Beatles' best?
      Posted Jun 20, 2019
      Tolkien (2019) Louise Keller Tolkien is indeed a treasure. I was stimulated, moved and enthralled.
      Posted Jun 04, 2019
      Wild Rose (2018) Louise Keller Jessie Buckley is astonishing in this satisfying and emotionally rich drama in which a young rebel throws caution to the wind to pursue her dream to become a country star in Nashville.

      Red Joan (2018) Andrew L. Urban Red Joan is a film for grown ups with an appreciation of cinema and an openness to explore human nature in all sorts of compromising circumstances.
      Posted May 28, 2019
      Red Joan (2018) Louise Keller Ideals, secrets, love and betrayal are the themes of this superb British spy thriller in which a physics graduate risks everything 'to change the world'.
      Posted May 28, 2019
      Rocketman (2019) Louise Keller Camouflaged under appropriately diminishing hair, flamboyant spectacles and outrageous costumes, Taron Egerton's superb lead performance offers Rocketman every chance to soar but the film is a mixed bag.
      Posted May 26, 2019
      John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) Louise Keller Visually striking with choreographed action that is as deadly as it is dazzling, John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum is inventive, creative and hits every mark within its sublime production design.... Keanu is at the top of his game...
      Posted May 20, 2019
      The Hustle (2019) Louise Keller The South of France looks fabulous - as do the Jimmy Choo stilettos that Anne Hathaway wears. The music bounces happily like a French farce. So far so good. But the film is a disappointment: a mix of contrivance, tawdry humour and patchy performances.
      Posted May 09, 2019
      Long Shot (2019) Louise Keller The unlikely romantic pairing of Charlize Theron and Seth Rogan successfully offers giggles in quirky situations, although messages about gender politics, role playing, racism and satire are less successful.
      Posted Apr 29, 2019
      Avengers: Endgame (2019) Louise Keller A high-octane spectacular filled with surprises, twists and action sequences that are pure mayhem. The film's conceit is as large as its scale.

      Gloria Bell (2018) Louise Keller The English language remake of Chilean writer director Sebastian Lelio's 2013 film hit Gloria loses nothing in translation. It's wonderful!
      Posted Apr 15, 2019
      Shazam! (2019) Louise Keller Fresh and fabulous, this blast of a superhero adventure ticks all the boxes. It is funny, cool and the narrative flies on the wings of a good script and excellent direction.

      Little (2019) Louise Keller A fun twist on the body switch premise, Little is big on laughs and delivers a whopping good time.
      Posted Apr 08, 2019
      The Aftermath (2019) Louise Keller Cinematic and romantic, the film combines honour with personal dilemma, punctuated by the essence of the horrors of the war and its aftermath. It feels a little like a Mills and Boon tale...

      Hotel Mumbai (2018) Andrew L. Urban It's a demanding and challenging film, confronting as it takes us so close to an inhuman, amoral hate we cannot comprehend.
      Posted Mar 11, 2019
      Hotel Mumbai (2018) Louise Keller The imagery is intense, brutal and disturbing. Volker Bertelmann's percussive heavy score is powerful, adding effectively to the build up of tension and fear.

      Cold Pursuit (2019) Louise Keller True to its Norwegian filmic origins, Hans Petter Moland's remake of his 2014 thriller Kraftidioten is blackly funny, overtly violent and filled with a snow plow of quirky elements. And it has Liam Neeson.
