Wonderstruck - A magical and melancholy experience
WONDERSTRUCK
A magical and melancholy experience

Downsizing - Honey, I shrunk my ability to be a decent human being
DOWNSIZING
Honey, I shrunk my ability to be a decent human being
An unfunny, unilluminating, caustically toothless, visually uninspiring and intellectually facile attempt at mansplaining the world’s problems.
In This Corner Of The World - A heartbreaking and beautiful animated film
IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD
A heartbreaking and beautiful animated film
Katabuchi’s previous anime films are better known in the West among anime nerds - but the incredibly moving and sobering ‘In This Corner of the World’ should be the film to change that.
Wonder Wheel - Inert and boring
WONDER WHEEL
Inert and boring
Not a single character is likeable, nor can they provoke an ounce of empathy. This 100 minutes felt like forever with not even Kate Winslet to save you from ‘Wonder Wheel’s’ mind-numbing boredom.
Ancien And The Magic Tablet - A confusing young adult anime
ANCIEN AND THE MAGIC TABLET
A confusing young adult anime
This is a gorgeous-looking film, with a soft storybook visual style. It's a story about family and coming to terms with the past, as well as teens learning to make their own way through the world.
Radiance - Sweetness spoils a beautifully shot romance
RADIANCE
Sweetness spoils a beautifully shot romance
The film looks terrific. Naomi Kawase makes use of natural autumnal magic-hour light. Unfortunately, the writing doesn’t support the visuals, with thin characterisation and glacial pacing.
The Florida Project - An authentic slice of life
THE FLORIDA PROJECT
An authentic slice of life
It’s simply a snapshot of real lives and we’re granted the honour of witnessing such unsung beauty and vitality. In a word, ‘The Florida Project’ is authentic.
Just To Be Sure - A baffling French film
JUST TO BE SURE
A baffling French film
'Just To Be Sure' doesn’t seem to know what it is. Not quite a comedy, not quite a drama, but it is French. Take from that what you will.
The Tokyo Night Sky Is Always The Densest Shade Of Blue - A film drowning in its own quirkiness
THE TOKYO NIGHT SKY IS ALWAYS THE DENSEST SHADE OF BLUE
A film drowning in its own quirkiness
Ideally, this is a film watched while in a depressed or existential mood in a big city. Otherwise, most viewers will find it lyrical but fairly tedious, if not outright yawn-inducing.
Snow Woman - Kiki Sugino's ghostly Japanese tale
SNOW WOMAN
Kiki Sugino's ghostly Japanese tale
Kiki Sugino directs, co-writes and plays the titular lead in her third directorial feature. This is a beautiful, poetic and nuanced film. Highly recommended and well worth seeking out.
Shot Caller - A terrifying look at the U.S. prison system
SHOT CALLER
A terrifying look at the U.S. prison system
‘Shot Caller’ is a tense, terrifying look at the U.S. prison system and a great showcase for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s often underrated acting abilities.
