Mank - A dazzling damnation of the hypocrisy of power

Rialto - An understated yet emotional mid-life crisis
RIALTO
An understated yet emotional mid-life crisis

The Dark and the Wicked - 2020's scariest film
THE DARK AND THE WICKED
2020's scariest film
Terrifyingly well-crafted, moodily evocative, and best watched through one's fingers.
Pinocchio - A darkly fantastic adaptation of a classic tale
PINOCCHIO
A darkly fantastic adaptation of a classic tale
Matteo Garrone pulls off something more captivating than a run-of-the-mill Disney-fied bedtime story - his 'Pinocchio' effortlessly fuses adventure, humour and moral instruction through magic realism.
Ammonite - Francis Lee delivers another beautiful portrait of love and longing
AMMONITE
Francis Lee delivers another beautiful portrait of love and longing
A beautiful, soulful and intelligent film, made with honesty, integrity and an unexpected sense of humour that breaks through the rock encasing it.
12 Hour Shift - The most fun you'll have in a hospital
12 HOUR SHIFT
The most fun you'll have in a hospital
While fun, it's exactly the horror-comedy affair you'd expect from a B-grade movie. It expects its audience to come for the blood and the belly laughs, but doesn't dig anything deeper.
Monsoon - Look at loss of cultural identity misses the mark
MONSOON
Look at loss of cultural identity misses the mark
You can see the good film buried underneath, and Henry Golding gives a very emotional performance, but it's unfortunately lost as 'Monsoon' is simply uninteresting.
Fatman - Meh-rry Christmas
FATMAN
Meh-rry Christmas
Lacking a consistently prioritised visual or narrative dynamism, nor a single cinematic style or message, 'Fatman' feels like the product of busy but unfocused imaginations.
Freaky - Get your freak on
FREAKY
Get your freak on
It succeeds when it sticks to the serial killer/swapped bodies storyline, but its need to add emotional depth to this horror-comedy and tack on an extended cheap ending weakens the whole film.
GoldenEye - 25 years on and it's still the ultimate Bond experience
GOLDENEYE
25 years on and it's still the ultimate Bond experience
It stands the test of time, reminding us that before there was the best video game ever created, there was one of the best Bond films ever produced.
Then Came You - Then came the same movie over and over again
THEN CAME YOU
Then came the same movie over and over again
You know what you're in for when you hear the plot: it's Hallmark or Netflix bland romantic cheese. You have absolutely no reason to watch it - you'll forget about it while you're watching it.
