HIGH LIFE
Despite the deep space setting of the film, it is an inherently human experience. It will be unpalatable for some, an instant classic for others - but the brutality and power of this film is undeniable.
Cross The Line - A gritty descent into a feverish hell

A gritty descent into a feverish hell

LOVE AND MONSTERS
A fun freakshow for the whole family

TOM & JERRY
A spiritless reimagining of a classic cartoon

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

ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI
A dynamic look at a meeting of four icons

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.

Night Shift - A promising premise that lets you down
NIGHT SHIFT
A promising premise that lets you down
A fairly messy approach to what should otherwise be a very focused and minimalist film. Let down by wanting to cover too much results in an unfortunately forgetful and unsympathetic exploration.
Come True - Impressively eerie and visually striking
COME TRUE
Impressively eerie and visually striking
The film warns us that the human brain is the ultimate horror movie director. It's one thing to be tormented. It's another thing to face the grim reality that you're tormenting yourself.

THEN CAME YOU
Then came the same movie over and over again
