Dora and the Lost City of Gold - Dora meets Indiana Jones (and a song about poop)
DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD
Dora meets Indiana Jones (and a song about poop)
'Dora' is great. It’s cute and fun, exciting and with plenty of self-deprecating humour and Latin flavour, and boasts great messages about fitting in and being yourself
Good Boys - More than just a young 'Superbad'

More than just a young 'Superbad'

Long Day's Journey into Night - Art and technology meet in a dream-like film noir
LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT
Art and technology meet in a dream-like film noir
The protagonist’s myth-like search into his physical and metaphysical past is a feat of filmmaking that's as impressive as it is vital, where dream and fantasy and longing flow together.
Braid - A dark and unhinged fairytale
BRAID
A dark and unhinged fairytale
Rooted in Polanski-like psycho horror and with an ending that is interpretively ambiguous, this film leaves something to be desired as a story.
Granny Poetry Club - Growing old, friendship, learning and poetry
GRANNY POETRY CLUB
Growing old, friendship, learning and poetry
This documentary tracks a group of unlikely people in a very peculiar and undocumented situation. It's a reminder that age is but a number, and we are only as limited as we think we are.
Dreamland - Surrealist noir
DREAMLAND
Surrealist noir
Equal parts violent, tragic, comic, silly and surreal, this is an extremely strange movie, and that strangeness will either endear it to you or alienate you.
Inseparable Bros - A heartwarming tale about disability and the power of friendship
INSEPARABLE BROS
A heartwarming tale about disability and the power of friendship
This is one of those heartwarming tearjerkers that's sure to be an instant crowd-pleaser, showcasing not only the power of friendships but of disabled friendships.
Tone-Deaf - A horror in its execution only
TONE-DEAF
A horror in its execution only
A pointless, dull, drawn-out attempt at horror. The only reason it’ll leave you screaming is out of boredom.

Downton Abbey - Transition from TV to film not as classy as expected
DOWNTON ABBEY
Transition from TV to film not as classy as expected
The film seems more like an extended TV special rather than a theatrical film, but fans won’t be mad to see it on the big screen.
The Spy Gone North - Engrossing espionage escapades
THE SPY GONE NORTH
Engrossing espionage escapades
You don’t need to know much about Korean politics to enjoy it; you only need an appreciation for political intrigue and tension-inducing filmmaking.
Freaks - Slow-burn science-fiction drama
FREAKS
Slow-burn science-fiction drama
The picture works intuitively, letting you try to figure things out on your own while focusing on what’s going on. This is the work of growing filmmakers who are clearly only getting started.
The Art of Self-Defense - A satire as pitch-black as a karate belt
THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE
A satire as pitch-black as a karate belt
A truly funny, dark experience that will polarise audiences, hopefully leaving most of them satisfied. Just try not to think about it too much.
Mantis Nest - A murder mystery ménage à trois
MANTIS NEST
A murder mystery ménage à trois
Deceptively complex and richly told, the film explores an array of cultural, religious, socioeconomic and familial tensions. It also sustains strong characters, deep emotions and clear dramatic force.
Swing Kids - A war film in its own league
SWING KIDS
A war film in its own league
The film should be commended for its ambition, even if it doesn’t always manage to juggle all its balls as well as wants to. It's a breath of fresh air for a film set in wartime.
Bangla - A truly beautiful mess
BANGLA
A truly beautiful mess
An impressive feature debut that offers a multicultural romance with a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. It’s the perfect film for a light, fluffy evening at the cinema.
Angel of Mine - Less than heavenly
ANGEL OF MINE
Less than heavenly
There are some interesting moments and solid performances, but more often than not, the film simply doesn’t deliver as a viscerally unsettling thriller, tense psychodrama or even as a soap opera.
The Longest Shot - Misses the target
THE LONGEST SHOT
Misses the target
As an excursion into a Chinese underworld filled with sharp suit-wearing thugs and handsomely-filmed interiors, the film is compelling... but only to an extent.
It Chapter 2 - The ambitious conclusion to the beloved horror epic
IT CHAPTER 2
The ambitious conclusion to the beloved horror epic
Epic, ambitious, crazy, witty and unafraid to go for the heart as well as the throat. This adaptation of maybe Stephen King’s greatest work feels singular in the landscape of modern horror cinema.
Amazing Grace - An extraordinary document on the power of music
AMAZING GRACE
An extraordinary document on the power of music
An exhalation to the ecstasy of music, how it can affect the body and soul of those who create it and receive it. This raw and beautiful film captures an artist at the height of her powers.
A Resistance - A sombre portrait of faith and courage
A RESISTANCE
A sombre portrait of faith and courage
An increasing amount of Korea's best movies are highly influenced by their difficult and often turbulent history. Much like its protagonist, this film manages to keep the faith.
The Great Battle - An awesomely entertaining war epic
THE GREAT BATTLE
An awesomely entertaining war epic
With over half the movie consisting of action scenes, if you love violence as much as a Spartan, Quentin Tarantino, or a video-game-playing teenage boy, you will be endlessly fascinated.
