Lean on Pete
FEATURE
LEAN ON PETE
This film offers an all-too realistic glimpse at the struggles of life through the eyes of a fifteen-year-old boy. Delicately handled, it shows great control from a skilled cast and crew.

Boy Erased - All the best intentions, but never quite reaches them
BOY ERASED
All the best intentions, but never quite reaches them
There's something quite moving and sorrowful about ‘Boy Erased’, and it gives us the chance to see Lucas Hedges in a lead role, something long overdue and enormously satisfying.
Ghost Stories - Sceptical scares
GHOST STORIES
Sceptical scares
An eerie, cleverly-assembled horror film, with scares that will vary depending on how big of a horror buff you are.
Beautiful Boy - Great performances drowning in a sea of mediocrity
BEAUTIFUL BOY
Great performances drowning in a sea of mediocrity
There’s such a need to treat an important topic with appropriate weight, but many moments that could have packed more punch thanks to the work of Carrell and Chalamet end up feeling bloated.
Donbass - A caustic look at the brutal absurdities of war
DONBASS
A caustic look at the brutal absurdities of war
An oppressive but thought-provoking viewing experience that peers deep into the Russian soul and finds there an unfathomable blackness.
The Cleaners - Gruelling but engrossing
THE CLEANERS
Gruelling but engrossing
The material is tough to absorb. At times, ‘The Cleaners’ feels more like a grim, neon-lit, science-fiction noir than a documentary.
Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist - Punk's not dead
WESTWOOD: PUNK, ICON, ACTIVIST
Punk's not dead
A truly inspirational and fascinating look into a style icon, this is the story of her life, and it is a fascinating life to witness.
A Star Is Born - Keep the music, ditch the rest
A STAR IS BORN
Keep the music, ditch the rest
This film has all the ingredients to rock audiences to their core with characters and a tale that truly means something.
1% - A gang drama void of stakes
1%
A gang drama void of stakes
This film is missing any real stakes, any real anticipation, any real tension. It’s an outdated concept of Australian storytelling, and audiences deserve much better.
Minding The Gap - A mesmeric portrait of imperfect youths coming of age
MINDING THE GAP
A mesmeric portrait of imperfect youths coming of age
For a non-fiction piece of filmmaking, its emotional intelligence is grounded in such tangible intimacy, it is heartbreaking as much as it is astonishing.
Bad Times at the El Royale - An unexpected and subversive delight
BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE
An unexpected and subversive delight
Is it just a great little genre play on the trope of a group of strangers forced together under unusual circumstances, or is it something much bigger? You’ll just have to find out for yourself.
A Prayer Before Dawn - Tough but insubstantial
A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN
Tough but insubstantial
A tough watch with a strong central performance, but it doesn’t quite overcome an extremely pared-down story that doesn’t have much to say.
First Man - An incredible and deeply moving journey into the impossible
FIRST MAN
An incredible and deeply moving journey into the impossible
A powerful and moving experience, it will leave you marvelling at the ability of our species to dream, to invent, to strive and to survive.
The Raft - Smooth sailing
THE RAFT
Smooth sailing
In its best moments, ‘The Raft’ strives in teaching us how simple it can be for our ambition to become our downfall.
Our New President - Fake news has never been so aimless
OUR NEW PRESIDENT
Fake news has never been so aimless
For a film that proves unrelentingly misguided, ‘Our New President’ offers very few redeeming qualities. It is a miscellany of disinteresting acclamations devoid of any insight.
American Animals - An unusual crime caper
AMERICAN ANIMALS
An unusual crime caper
The opening half hour is all about the adrenal rush of planning and strategising a heist, but occasionally feels like an exercise in style over substance.
