    Continuing his recent string of genre defying hits, director Ben Wheatley takes a scenario usually reserved for the finale – the tense firefight – and stretches it out into ninety minutes of famous actors crawling around on a dusty warehouse floor, yelling insults and firing off potshots at each other. The biggest surprise that emerges [...]

    FENCES is a powerful and engaging family drama, but it always seems a little fenced in cinematically by its theatrical origin. Jim Ross reviews.

    Jordan Peeleā€™s first feature as director is a confident step away from his previous television exploits: Mad TV (2002) and Key & Peele (2012), throwing off his sketch-show jacket and donning a more provocative and thoughtful attire. While still holding on to his satirical voice, Peele allows the film to linger within the fringes of [...]

    MOONLIGHT is not a portrait painted in broad brushstrokes, but a tapestry – any one strand can be admired for its own technique and qualities, but standing back to observe the whole is where the power lies. Jim Ross reviews.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow is a rousing French documentary concerning the state of the planet. Unlike your average end-of-the-world documentary, in which we are warned of things to come and accusingly faced with the exponential dangers we have caused. This is a more hopeful documentary, one in which the filmmakers examine solutions, rather than problems. Directed by Cyril [...]

Illegitimate

Most families have their fair share of tantrums. Few are likely to compare to the dysfunctional dynamics erupting in ILLEGITIMATE. The household horrors in this Romanian drama are grisly and unlikely to be ones you would want to witness alongside your mother, father or siblings. In exploding the niggling frustrations we usually repress in our [...]
