DRAGON BALL SUPER: SUPER HERO
A true 'Dragon Ball' entry that fans will eat up, filled with tonnes of fan service and callbacks.
Settle in on the couch and enjoy a new Ink & Paint!
Daniel looks into the history of Walt Disney Home Video and the role of VHS in the evolution of the Disney animated classics and the Walt Disney Company.
A phenomenally grimy, goofy debut
One of the most refreshingly comical (pun unintended) and authentic coming-of-age films of the last few years. Owen Kline proves himself to be a talent completely on his own merits.
Holding onto hope at the end of the world
This is a difficult film to shake off. It would have been enough to see such a powerful portrait of our planet in its death throes, but it is made all the more potent by its innumerable flashes of beauty and magic.
A delicious mix of the strange and hilarious
Like his other films, the visuals, the costumes, the set decoration, the swirling colours, lush cinematography and the soundtrack are stunning. If you have a taste for something a little different, 'Flux Gourmet' is the perfect gateway into the oeuvre of a very unique filmmaker.
BRIAN AND CHARLES
The perfect companion to fill that robot-shaped hole in your life
Full of heart, warmth and laughter, it feels like a hidden gem before it's even hit the screens. With an intimate atmosphere and quirky characters, it seems at times like this film was made specifically for you to have a good time.
Searching for connection in Taiwan
Both an expertly crafted multi-strand, big-swing character drama and a portrait of non-glamorous Taiwan, this is an impressive piece of work from Lou Yi-an.
This Dolly Parton impersonation film is not a way to make a living
It offers an engaging idea but often gets lost in its narrative, going for humour over heart.
High concept, high laughs
It's clear that it has plenty of fantastic ideas it wants to explore, but it just doesn't seem to know what these are or how to get there. Despite this, Gillan's performances make 'Dual' a worthy and entertaining way to spend an evening.
Jordan Peele reaches for the stars with his glorious third feature
This is remarkable achievement, an extraordinary piece of genre filmmaking that subverts almost every expectation. It cements Jordan Peele as one of the most exciting cinematic voices we have. Most of all though, it's just
so much goddamn fun
SPEAK NO EVIL
The holiday from hell
This plays directly into the horror tropes it holds in contempt, and takes it out on its audience in the nastiest (and best) way possible.
Despite being far from his best, 'Broker' proves that even a middling Hirokazu Kore-eda project is still leagues above other director's batting averages.
Family is the true horror in this handsome stage-to-screen adaptation
This may be a family drama masquerading as a horror film, but few recent horror films hit you in the guts quite like this, have you cringing in fear at the inevitability of this family falling apart.
CRIMES OF THE FUTURE
Beauty behind the (mutilation) madness
It can be quite disturbing, but there is a tender core to be respected and relished - it's an experience far more hopeful than the nihilistic ways in which the film’s characters use their bodies.
TRIANGLE OF SADNESS
A cruise through shallow waters
For all its shortcomings, 'Triangle of Sadness' is an entertaining dive into the lives of the rich and the famous, even if the dive is as shallow as its characters are made out to be. Thank goodness the laughs make it worth it.
MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2022
MIFF is now on - and SWITCH has all the best reviews from the top films to help you decide what you should see!
Small-town boy in a big arcade
A beautiful film where a gay love story unfolds and doesn’t hide those moments that might make it seem too much. It's subtle, heartbreaking and raw and, for fans of queer Australian cinema, is not to be missed.
All aboard! This Pitt action film is your perfect new popcorn flick
This is a fun ride - it's enjoyable, sometimes campy, and a good time that's sure to satisfy action buffs.
MIFF 70 IS HERE!
Our top picks for the 70th Melbourne International Film Festival
So the Melbourne International Film Festival program dropped and you're desperately trying to whittle it down to the films you can make between working, eating and sleeping. Never fear - Ashley was at the line-up launch event, and has distilled the list to her must-see highlights!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU, LEO GRANDE
Sex positive and positively charming
Effortlessly charming with the right amount of comedy mixed in for good measure, it knows what it wants to say and puts that message of pleasure and human connection front of centre, forcing the audience to listen and take on the challenges.
HIDE AND SEEK
Much more than a game in the back streets of Naples
Naples' Spanish Quarter is a tinderbox, and the questionable political approach being used to address it is only fanning the situation further. Until that approach changes, the future of so many children stuck in the situation remains uncertain.
A heartbreaking and honest Indonesian coming-of-age story
Coming-of-age films are an age-old genre, and it is difficult at times to balance the melodrama of youth with honesty and realism. 'Yuni' walks this line beautifully, while capturing and commentating on many themes without being performative.
A tuneful romance
Music is a lot more powerful than we think. We just hear an old song and it just takes us somewhere else, bringing back some of those special moments from our lives that we have forgotten. 'Press Play' is a slight but sweet offering that (at a brisk 85 minutes) doesn’t overstay its welcome.
An insightful portrait of displacement
Yin-Yu Huang's documentary captures the essence, the soul, of Iriomote Island, which, however many parallels it might have with prisons anywhere, was unique in the depths of its experience.
