Where to Invade Next (2016)
Our Brand is Crisis (2015)
"Sadly, Green's film devolves into an anonymous mulch with little to offer beyond its central insistence that contemporary politics is a den of snakes, and that policies are subordinate to character."
The Program (2016)
"Frears' film doesn't attempt to dig up anything new or profound so much as zip entertainingly round the twists and turns of an episode of recent sporting villainy whose fascination happily survives the retelling."
Louder Than Bombs (2016)
Mia Madre (2016)
Miss Julie (2014)
45 Years (2015)
Sun Choke (2016)
"Sun Choke is, in keeping with a protagonist who comes in more than one 'version', a disorienting, dissociative affair, reminiscent in parts of Yorgos Lanthimos' Dogtooth (2009) - and all beautiful, tense, hallucinatory and deeply disturbing. "
Over Your Dead Body (Kuime) (2014)
"two parallel narratives bleed into one another in a deeply irrational manner, blurring the boundaries between theatre and film, antique and (post)modern, actor and character, the living and the dead."
The Nightmare (2015)
"as 8 people are interviewed about their sleep paralysis, Ascher (himself a sufferer) also reproduces their described experiences on screen, blurring the boundaries between documentary material and vividly, often terrifyingly realised horror tropes."
"With irreverent, unsettling social satire & much monkeying about, [it] first dismembers & then reassembles the primeval drives of patriarchy in its own singular way, & will no doubt elicit from viewers plenty of ooooohs, hahahas & even the odd huh?."
The Wolfpack (2015)
Mistress America (2015)
La Luna (1979)
The Outsiders (1983)
"One of the most overtly aesthetic, art-for-art's-sake films in Hollywood's history, a faux-naïf Pre-Raphaelite mural in which angels with dirty faces but immaculately pure hearts burn with a hard, gemlike flame before being snuffed out in their prime."
That Sinking Feeling (1979)
Gregory's Girl (1981)
"Mine is a minority opinion, but I am convinced that his experiments with video and colour will make Il Mistero di Oberwald the Becky Sharp of cinema's long-promised and long-deferred electronic era."
"With this film, Tarkovsky re-entrusts to the medium a responsibility which in the West is upheld, if at all, only by documentaries (and by a rare maverick work like Pasolini's Salò): that of testifying, of showing."
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
"Spielberg would seem to be groping towards a virtual theology of space, space as Heaven, offering solace to a world which has foolishly renounced its traditional God but still aches to extend its own spiritual frontiers."
Inside Out (2015)
"The latest computer-animation feature from Disney Pixar, Inside Out is an epic journey across a fantastic landscape which also happens to be compellingly concerned with the quotidian experience of an 11-year-old girl."
Estate, a Reverie (2015)
"Estate, A Reverie serves as a graffiti-like reminder of the individuals and personal histories, so easily overlooked, that are as important as the buildings that house them in making up a community."
The Wonders (2015)
"Without any of the self-importance, maudlin sentimentality or winking reflexivity that characterises most coming-of-age tales, Alice Rohrwacher's second feature is a patient argument for, and quiet toast to, a rapidly disappearing way of life."
Song Of The Sea (2014)
Dear White People (2014)
X-Men: First Class (2011)
"For reasons arising from the way the X-Men film franchise has developed, this is the first Marvel movie set in the period when the characters were created, and thus able to embrace the Rat Pack cool that was part of their original charm."
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Terminator Genisys (2015)
