Rating Title/Year Author
4.5/5 The Wife (2017) Charlotte Harrison Whilst The Wife as a film itself is an above-average drama, Glenn Close's performance is the memorable factor. It's a tour de force performance; a powerhouse display that fully commands the screen. EDIT

5/5 Blindspotting (2018) Charlotte Harrison Blindspotting is 95 minutes long, with tight storytelling of a truly compelling narrative that is made all the more intense with the pace it is told at. It's one of reasons it was my favourite film of 2018. EDIT

4/5 Greed (2019) Katie Hogan The comedic elements to the film are the highlights, especially when Steve Coogan gets to flex his character muscles... EDIT

4/5 Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) Katie Hogan A love story that is both wildly passionate and quietly beautiful, so much so that it doesn't need to be shouted about from the cliffs, as all the character's emotions can be expressed with one look and sometimes, not even that... EDIT

Ava (2017) Katie Hogan Director and writer Léa Mysius' story plays out almost as calmly as the serene beach resort it is set in. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Murder on the Orient Express (2017) Katie Hogan Her (Agatha Christie) stories keep everyone guessing until the end, and no matter how the story is presented, it is always with a dramatic flare and a big reveal. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
The Square (2017) Katie Hogan The reason why The Square works so brilliantly with macabre and laughter is that it mirrors what we see and do everyday. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
The Boy Downstairs (2017) Katie Hogan There is a wonderfully awkward but natural chemistry between Mamet's Diana and Matthew Shear's Ben that makes the film flow easier, especially in this genre. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2017) Katie Hogan A sci-fi comedy with a love story at the heart sound like a mouthful but if when you're shouting lyrics like 'EAT ME ALIVE' you just join and start screaming those words too. Entertained from start to finish. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
I Am Not a Witch (2017) Katie Hogan Maggie Mulubwa is near expressionless throughout and barely speaks, but this makes all the difference, her wide eyes doing all the talking for her. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Thelma (2017) Katie Hogan Thelma's story plays out beautifully, even through the pain and sorrow. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Princess Cyd (2017) Katie Hogan Director and writer Stephen Cone gently weaves together a light bright story, with an exception of one dark moment. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
A Beautiful Day (2017) Katie Hogan A beautifully brutal piece of cinema that is guaranteed to stay with you after the credits roll. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Moon Dogs (2016) Katie Hogan The most refreshing element of the film, aside from the picturesque landscapes, is definitely the casting of the three leads. Covering Ireland, Wales and Scotland, it shows the talent across the nations. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Katie Hogan McDonagh has once again crafted a brilliantly violent and emotionally charged script about anger, revenge, regret, unfulfillment and justice that isn't always served. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
The Exception (2016) Katie Hogan There are some good performances to enjoy and even Jai Courntey's awkward German accent passes the bar. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
The Shape of Water (2017) Katie Hogan This is a elegantly portrayed love story set against a shifting background that leaves you wanting to see more happy endings. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Heal the Living (2016) Katie Hogan The story is everything it's meant to be, a mixture of hope and sadness with no surprises to deter from a story worth telling. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
The Women's Balcony (2016) Katie Hogan It's a brilliant uplifting film with a soul and really does show the importance of respect. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Spaceship (2016) Katie Hogan Written and directed by Taylor, it may be a difficult story structure for some to follow but once you open your mind to all the possibilities out there, you can quickly find yourself immersed into this otherworldly story. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
2/5 Dog Eat Dog (2016) Katie Hogan Cage's character is matter of fact and just wants things to get done, gives the film a pace and a somewhat useful insight. But ultimately, the film has a mean streak too thick to appreciate more. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Ghost in the Shell (2017) Katie Hogan There are aspects of the film worth commending and parts that will annoy even a novice but ultimately, if you enjoy science fiction stories, you won't be disappointed. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
The Edge of Seventeen (2016) Katie Hogan With all the high-school drama aside, Nadine's one-to-ones with her teacher are either extremely awkward or heartwarming, and that's just what the story needed - a break and fresh viewpoint on Nadine's life. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
East Side Sushi (2014) Katie Hogan This is a delightful light drama about how everyone deserves an opportunity no matter who they are or where they are from. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Domain (2017) Katie Hogan Despite the flaws in the story, it is a new idea that is interesting even if it is similar to other science fiction stories of survival. The greatest strength the film has is the cast. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
5/5 Mindhorn (2016) Katie Hogan The film is faultless and it's a great to see such a brilliantly assembled cast. Comedy is alive and well in the UK. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
5/5 I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016) Katie Hogan A brilliant film that is rightfully placed in the 'Cult' section of the festival as it is sure to have this status in years to come. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
2/5 Ben-Hur (2016) Katie Hogan Unfortunately, 'new interpretation' means changing the story dramatically and turning it into a slight rip off of Gladiator and we are not entertained. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
Isle of Dogs (2018) Katie Hogan It's a beautifully crafted story about how much one boy will do for his dog and what one man will do for his ancestor's honour. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
4/5 Revenge (2017) Katie Hogan It more than satisfies and exceeds expectations and hopefully will serve as a turning point for the genre. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
4/5 Loveling (2018) Katie Hogan The film stays at the same tone throughout, not needing to exaggerate situations, characters or plot. It is perfectly balanced portrayal of a normal family, just living their lives. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
4/5 The Unicorn Store (2017) Katie Hogan As Brie Larson's directorial debut it is a glittery delight and definitely showcases her talent and hopefully future directing. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
4/5 The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches (2017) Katie Hogan Ending on a joyful and very painful last few minutes, their is no real resolution or, in fact, hope, just a release which may be enough for some. EDIT
Posted Feb 4, 2020
3/5 Dumped (Larguées) (2018) Katie Hogan The story, like its characters, is fun, sometimes silly and over the top, but at the end of the day it is all about daughter-mother bonding. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/5 Waru (2017) Katie Hogan The fact that this is the first feature film made by Maori women in nearly 30 years, says a great deal about the film industry and that this film has arrived at the right time. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/5 A Dark Place (2018) Katie Hogan People fear the unknown and automatically don't trust it, however in film, we can usually turn this around and give the hero his moment, even if Donnie doesn't get that. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
3/5 In Darkness (2018) Katie Hogan The film is a welcome change to the British thriller landscape. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
5/5 Las herederas (2018) Katie Hogan With so many delicate moments, the women's performances, from theater actors and many non actors too, all had time to craft their characters. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
5/5 Supa Modo (2018) Katie Hogan Seeing the completed film at the end, complete with a fantastic VJing performance, not a gimmick but a common way to watch films in Kenya, you feel uplifted and hope that Supa Modo lives on! EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
3/5 The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales... (2017) Katie Hogan A funny, sometimes even laugh out loud moment, witty and not at all small minded animated film that is beautifully animated in 2D, makes you wish that there were more films made this way. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
2/5 The Changeover (2017) Katie Hogan There seems to be much promise attached the story but the film doesn't quite deliver what's expected. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
2/5 High Voltage (2018) Katie Hogan Sold on the fact that David Arquette and Luke Wilson star, the latter is in three scenes and makes little to no impact to the story or film. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/5 The Breaker Upperers (2018) Katie Hogan The film manages to be several different comedic plots at the same time; odd couple pairing, screwball antics, quirky romance making it comedic gold that isn't present in it's Hollywood and even indie comparatives. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/5 School's Out (2018) Katie Hogan There is also the possibility to read too much into characters actions and words but the overall feeling of, 'something isn't right' is felt until the end and that might worth the wait. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
3/5 The Realm (El reino) (2018) Katie Hogan With the charismatic Antonio de la Torre at Manu, driving the film through the low life politicians living the high life, the film is saved from too confusing a plot. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/5 Jinn (2018) Katie Hogan What's interesting is we get to see both Summer's and Tahir's reactions to being torn apart after they are 'caught'. It isn't one sided. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
3/5 () Katie Hogan By the end of the film you're left with an uncomfortable empty feeling that there is no hope and the cycle continues, which is bleak indeed but just shows devastating the subject of the film is. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
3/5 Soni (2018) Katie Hogan As a first feature film, Ayr has created an interesting to start to an on-going conversation, one that needs and should be extended outside one's own country and comfort zone. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
1/5 In Fabric (2018) Katie Hogan With such a promising premise that could have been strange but alluring, you're left with a confused and irritating feeling that nothing really made sense. EDIT
Posted Feb 3, 2020
4/5 The Fight (2018) Katie Hogan Along the way her family experience small victories which adds to the feeling that no one is alone, they are a family, they don't give up on each other. EDIT
