Fatale - Potential to be a truly electric thriller
FEATURE
FATALE
It aims high but falls into mediocrity, never really initiating the spark to bring it to life. It's a shame, because with a little more intensity, this could have been a truly electric thriller.

SYNCHRONIC
Even if Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead only pull at an interesting thread and don't fully unravel it, it's still more unique than most other genre movies you'll see.
Locked Down - Far from pandemic perfection
LOCKED DOWN
Far from pandemic perfection
I'm sure we'll see far more tasteless pandemic-themed films in the future, but this is so bland that it's hard to imagine anyone will tackle this ongoing issue with any real grace for years to come.
Wrath of Man - Another forgettable addition to the dude crime genre
WRATH OF MAN
Another forgettable addition to the dude crime genre
Even if you're a die-hard Guy Ritchie or Jason Statham fan, they have done so much better together. It's truly just another passable, forgettable crime film.
Twist - Please sir, can I have a lot less of this?
TWIST
Please sir, can I have a lot less of this?
The film genuinely has no idea if it wants to be a homage, a wink, a parallel, or complete coincidence. Yet the strangest part is that it manages to convince a really stellar cast to take part.
Citizen Kane - Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the great American masterpiece
CITIZEN KANE
Celebrating the 80th anniversary of the great American masterpiece
You expect a dusty old object, lofty in its legacy, but once the dust was wiped away, it's full of staggering dynamism and power. 'Citizen Kane' is one of the greatest films of all time.
Ema - Horrifying yet hypnotic
EMA
Horrifying yet hypnotic
A unique and electric flurry of anger, propelled by unconventionally centred dance routines and a knockout lead performance. 
First Cow - A minimalist portrait of the American dream
FIRST COW
A minimalist portrait of the American dream
Kelly Reichardt points to an alternate reality where it's not the muscle of capitalism that conquers, but rather the sweet companionship and commitment to fellowship, not the greed of self-interest.
Land - A beautifully filmed exploration of grief
LAND
A beautifully filmed exploration of grief
There is an inherent fascination in witnessing an individual cope with the elements, against the vastness of the wilderness. While it's beautifully shot and acted, sometimes less is more when it comes to screenplay.
Amélie - The perfect companion piece to 'Soul' for a life of joy
AMÉLIE
The perfect companion piece to 'Soul' for a life of joy

Mortal Kombat - Ready? Fight!
MORTAL KOMBAT
Ready? Fight!
It's hyper-violent - something you would expect from what was basically the first very violent video game - and it doesn't hold back on the gore. It's camp fun that lives up to the video game.
The United States vs. Billie Holiday - a biopic that fails to soar
THE UNITED STATES VS. BILLIE HOLIDAY
a biopic that fails to soar
Andra Day deserves a better opportunity to showcase both her acting and singing talent, and Billie Holiday deserves a biopic far less by-the-numbers than this.
Gunda - Piglets, peace and producer Joaquin Phoenix
GUNDA
Piglets, peace and producer Joaquin Phoenix

Cross The Line - A gritty descent into a feverish hell
CROSS THE LINE
A gritty descent into a feverish hell

Love and Monsters - A fun freakshow for the whole family
LOVE AND MONSTERS
A fun freakshow for the whole family
Yet another victim of the pandemic-mandated cinema-to-VOD shuffle, it's unfortunate that this film won't get a chance to shine on the big screen in the way few non-franchise films get to any more.
Collective - A shocking, raw investigation that defies belief
COLLECTIVE
A shocking, raw investigation that defies belief
The depth of information is incredible; interweaving the key events from the reporters, survivors and politicians. We view the scandal as it unfolds, from a cold and uncompromising viewpoint.
Tom & Jerry - A spiritless reimagining of a classic cartoon
TOM & JERRY
A spiritless reimagining of a classic cartoon
The spirit of the old cartoons is nowhere to be seen here. There's enough to entertain families, but for those looking to revisit some old favourites, it's best to look elsewhere.
The Father - A deeply moving look at mental illness
THE FATHER
A deeply moving look at mental illness
A critical darling and awards frontrunner, this is a film with emotional power and stellar performances for Olivia Colman and Anthony Hopkins.
Nobody - 'John Wick's' cousin is just as badass - but with more laughs
NOBODY
'John Wick's' cousin is just as badass - but with more laughs
While it doesn't quite nail the genre, it's still a wild and crazy escapist romp that'll leave any action fan happy. We're here to eat popcorn and watch someone else kick arse! And 'Nobody' delivers.
The Painter and the Thief - A strange, joyful examination of an artist and her muse
THE PAINTER AND THE THIEF
A strange, joyful examination of an artist and her muse
It's not a black-and-white narrative with a good guy, a bad guy, and a clear-cut scheme. It's a raw yet rich exploration of the messiness of human relationships, their beauty and depravity.
Golden Voices - Immigration struggles with amusing challenges
GOLDEN VOICES
Immigration struggles with amusing challenges
This amusing story of Russian dubbing stars may seem ultra-specific, but it clearly has a universal theme for all to appreciate and enjoy, and presents the idea in an amusing and heartfelt way.
The Grizzlies - Freedom Writers meets Mighty Ducks
THE GRIZZLIES
Freedom Writers meets Mighty Ducks
It loses its way when it tries to be an inspirational sports drama, but when it focuses on the Inuit community and the troubles they face, it gives you every reason to smile and even shed a tear.
One Night in Miami - A dynamic look at a meeting of four icons
ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI
A dynamic look at a meeting of four icons
It's a rare pleasure to watch a film like Regina King's 'One Night in Miami' that is willing to leave big questions about four larger-than-life men up in the air instead of trying to answer them.
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom - A powerfully acted tale stumbles from stage to screen
MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM
A powerfully acted tale stumbles from stage to screen
It isn't so much a movie as it is a play with a few more options; a showcase for actors rather than a cinematic experience. But the play it adapts is very good, with messages that are still relevant.
Cowboys - Saddle up for an emotional ride
COWBOYS
Saddle up for an emotional ride
A delicate, powerful and poignant film. It's a reminder that the innocence and acceptance children have is always a ray of hope against any intolerance and bigotry they may be born into.
French Exit - A farcical and ridiculous delight
FRENCH EXIT
A farcical and ridiculous delight
Michelle Pfeiffer's tremendous central performance, full of camp and acid and sadness, would be enough of a reason to see this, but it's all the more rewarding for how complete an experience it is.
