Posted Jan 17, 2020

Posted Jan 13, 2020
Underwater (2020) Anne Brodie If all moments are tense and fraught, and the monster's popping out at us nonstop, then there is no room to take emotional stock. That requires relief and connection and they aren't on the menu. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
Les misérables (2019) Anne Brodie Not to be missed, hard and tight and packed with meaning. EDIT
Posted Jan 13, 2020
The Song of Names (2019) Anne Brodie An emotional performance of the titular Song is the heart and soul of the film. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2019
Just Mercy (2019) Anne Brodie It's a stark reminder of the state of things then and a reflection of things now sadly. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2019
Uncut Gems (2019) Anne Brodie Somehow this too feels all too real, thanks to the Safdie's confident work and Sandler's astounding performance. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2019

Posted Dec 27, 2019
1917 (2019) Anne Brodie Mendes takes this fraught story to a higher level by shooting it as though it was a single moving shot and the effect is utterly mesmerising. EDIT
Posted Dec 27, 2019

Posted Dec 20, 2019

Posted Dec 20, 2019
Bombshell (2019) Anne Brodie The pace, access and action as fast and builds from minute one, but the film's held back by some obvious continuity and plot gaps. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2019
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Anne Brodie It's at a constant screech, which is numbing and dull, and results in an unemotional end to an otherwise harmless saga. EDIT
Posted Dec 20, 2019
A Christmas Carol (2018) Anne Brodie This is a gamechanger in Christmas entertainment. EDIT
Posted Dec 16, 2019
Midnight Family (2019) Anne Brodie Not easily forgotten, this dark trip. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
63 Up (2019) Anne Brodie The film is a fascinating addition to the roads traveled but is well worth a standalone viewing experience. Extremely moving, take your tissues. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open (2019) Anne Brodie The filmmakers leave much to our imagination and empathy in this barebones and deeply affecting film. Newcomer [Violet] Nelson has tremendous presence, gravity and authenticity. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
Richard Jewell (2019) Anne Brodie Eastwood's film is clean, crisp and well made but it belongs to Paul Walter Hauser. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
A Hidden Life (2019) Anne Brodie The leads' delicate performances, founded in emotion, strength and quiet opposition are incredibly moving. EDIT
Posted Dec 13, 2019
() Anne Brodie This is powerful stuff with a quietly arresting performance by [Nahéma] Ricci whose character's strength shines through again and again. EDIT
Posted Dec 5, 2019
The Report (2019) Anne Brodie Driver's dangerous deep dive takes time, patience and above all, courage in this tough to watch but essential. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
Dark Waters (2019) Anne Brodie You won't be able to leave your seat for fear of missing something in this corporate/real-life thriller. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
The Two Popes (2019) Anne Brodie Fernando Meirelles The Two Popes is a rarity, an important true-life religious story, an intellectual and elegant psychological thriller with massive scale and palpable intimacy. EDIT
Posted Dec 2, 2019
Lady and the Tramp (2019) Anne Brodie Set at the turn of the last century and shot in the beautiful fin de siècle neighbourhoods of Savannah Georgia it has all the points for nostalgia, but its inclusiveness and tone are in line with life today. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2019
Marriage Story (2019) Anne Brodie Superior, awards-worthy performances by Johansson and Driver. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2019
Waves (2019) Anne Brodie The young performers are sensational, but it's tough thinking of Brown as a villain, as his characters are often upstanding. EDIT
Posted Nov 22, 2019

Posted Nov 22, 2019

Posted Nov 14, 2019
Frankie (2019) Anne Brodie It becomes a visceral experience and turns the mirror on us. Kind of maddening, and kind of magic. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019
Midway (2019) Anne Brodie Emmerich's compassionate take on the bruising event lacks none of the power of his action thrillers, but stands out due to the basic, decent humanity at its core. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019
The Irishman (2019) Anne Brodie It's a treat and a challenge. On the other hand, it turns murdering, cheating, organised criminals into glamorous, commanding figures. Scorsese's masterpiece is the work of an artist at the peak of his power and a glorification of pure evil. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019
Synonyms (2018) Anne Brodie Powerful but overlong. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
The Cave (2019) Anne Brodie Feras Fayyad's The Cave will break your heart. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
Harriet (2019) Anne Brodie The film avoids hagiography and could easily have gone there, but aside from a few missteps, its a solid enough and what a story! EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) Anne Brodie The film isn't perfect - it's tough to rival the total supremacy of T2 but it's engaging, entertaining and hella nostalgic. EDIT
Posted Nov 1, 2019
Portals (2019) Anne Brodie The cohesion and payoff I was awaiting wasn't coming. Sigh. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2019
Saudi Women's Driving School (2019) Anne Brodie Absolutely fascinating. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2019
The Bronx, USA (2019) Anne Brodie Surprisingly funny and engaging. EDIT
Posted Oct 25, 2019
Greener Grass (2019) Anne Brodie A deliciously twisted suburban fable of a pastel-coloured universe of a neighbour living nutty lives held together by pink frosting. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019

Posted Oct 18, 2019
Parasite (2019) Anne Brodie Scathingly brilliant, satirical and exquisitely frenzied. EDIT
Posted Oct 18, 2019
Sometimes Always Never (2018) Anne Brodie This is a family in deep distress and the actors interpret the story realistically; there is no faux sentimentality, just characters driven by desperate needs for outcomes that may never happen. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
Where's My Roy Cohn? (2019) Anne Brodie [Director Matt] Tyrnauer persuasively reveals a character believed by many to be evil who was as close to power in the US as its possible to get without actually being Presiden. EDIT
