Rating Title/Year Author
3 We the Animals (2018) Kevin Wight Beautiful coming-of-age drama is slightly undermined by its own artistic tendencies. EDIT

3 Charlie Says (2018) Kevin Wight Harron and Turner are making a wider point about the nature of demagoguery and the willingness of people to be led. It's easy to look back with fifty years of hindsight and realise little has changed. EDIT

2 Halston (2019) Kevin Wight It's a rich snapshot of the times, but an incomplete portrait of the man known simply and monumentally as Halston. EDIT

1 Yesterday (2019) Kevin Wight There is no tension here. No drama. And unforgivably for a rock-'n'-roll film, no soul. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
4 Emma Peeters (2018) Kevin Wight It's a great marriage of director and star and proof that it's possible to wring fresh life from the hoary old romantic comedy. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
5 Bait (2019) Kevin Wight The effect is a strange union down the decades of Sergei Eisenstein and Mike Leigh. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
3 Hurt by Paradise (2019) Kevin Wight Hurt by Paradise works best as an intricately observed story of an artistic type striving for success against dwindling returns; albeit a thunderously middle class one. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
4 Aurora (2019) Kevin Wight Standard rom-com template is enriched with a keen social conscience, striking performances and an affectionate sense of place in Miia Tervo's raucously enjoyable film. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
2 Robert the Bruce (2019) Kevin Wight Earnest and overwrought historical drama undone by its own ambition. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
3 What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael (2018) Kevin Wight It's hard to watch a film in which the subject is a film critic, without wondering what they would have made of the film itself, and this gives the film a pleasurable little frisson to take away and ponder. EDIT

4 () Kevin Wight These scheme birds find their instinct for freedom in their own time, and on their own terms. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
4 Extreme Job (2019) Kevin Wight Broad but very funny police farce casts a critical eye at consumerism. EDIT
Posted Jul 12, 2019
4 In Fabric (2018) Kevin Wight Though rendered slightly baggy by its two tales, In Fabric is a unique and entertaining slice of arch weirdness that will further enhance Peter Strickland's cult reputation. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2019
4 Support the Girls (2018) Kevin Wight Bujalski does show that an unfair society can be made that bit more bearable when people look after each other. In the end, that feels uplifting in its own right. EDIT
Posted Jul 7, 2019
3 Unstoppable (2018) Kevin Wight Memorable characters abound in fairly satisfying but tonally iffy action comedy. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
2 Skin (2018) Kevin Wight It's hard to see who the target audience would be. The message is too simplistic, too skin-deep to convince anyone with deep-rooted hatred and the point it makes about redemption doesn't even need to be made to anyone else. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
3 Darlin' (2019) Kevin Wight While muddled and unsure what it's actually trying to be, Darlin' deserves credit for actually daring to be different enough from its predecessors to function on its own terms. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
4 The Wind (2018) Kevin Wight Frontier western horror overcomes narrative flaw with pure atmosphere and a great central performance. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
2 Driven (2018) Kevin Wight There's a great film to be made of this rather insane tale, but Driven is categorically not it. Too much is made of the veneer of the high life, the parties, and the disgusting wealth that masks the rot at the lives of all the protagonists. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
5 Undertow (2018) Kevin Wight Astonishing expressionistic study of loss amid the crashing waves of Australia's West Coast. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
1 Bittersweet Symphony (2019) Kevin Wight For the prolific Jamie Adams, the healing link between creativity and grief seems to be his stock-in-trade, but this effort fails on every level. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
4 Dirty God (2019) Kevin Wight A stunning debut performance from Vicky Knight, a real-life burns survivor grounds Dirty God in reality, even if the story occasionally takes the soft option. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
1 Mrs. Lowry & Son (2019) Kevin Wight When done with imagination, a good biopic can really delve under the skin of its subject. If Mrs Lowry & Son is any indication, however, it's that Lowry's personality had already been expressed far more eloquently on canvas. EDIT
