Official Secrets - Exposing lies at a time of war
OFFICIAL SECRETS
Exposing lies at a time of war

Marriage Story - Simply extraordinary
MARRIAGE STORY
Simply extraordinary
It’s shocking that a film so simple can be so nearly flawless. As an ugly portrait of two flawed people it's never easy to watch, but it is one of the most rewarding experiences in years.
30 years since 'Steel Magnolias' - The female-led films that made me
30 YEARS SINCE 'STEEL MAGNOLIAS'
The female-led films that made me
So many of the films that I’ve loved, worshipped and quote ad nauseam to this day are so deliciously women-centric - I must have just naturally gravitated towards them.
Charlie's Angels - A new generation of Angels, another barrel of fun
CHARLIE'S ANGELS
A new generation of Angels, another barrel of fun
2019's reboot is a fun watch with a great cast, especially a scene-stealing Kristen Stewart. If you like pure joy, it's highly recommend you check it out on the big screen.
Greener Grass - A deeply odd and very funny suburban nightmare
GREENER GRASS
A deeply odd and very funny suburban nightmare
Distorting reality through a dreamlike lens, the filmmakers created a world of blunt allegories and social antagonisms, perverted by a unique style into a manic, nearly unclassifiable black comedy.
Untogether - Not even the cast could keep this one together
UNTOGETHER
Not even the cast could keep this one together
It wants to be deep and meaningful, but fails at both. It turns into a boring snoozefest; all the characters are bland and too full of themselves to even come close to being relatable.

The reviews
SWITCH has explored this year's Jewish International Film Festival program to bring you the best films from the festival!
The Irishman - Kissing Scorsese’s ring (again)
THE IRISHMAN
Kissing Scorsese’s ring (again)
This isn’t telling one story, but a number of stories spanning decades with same dangerous gangsters, sharing the same threads of beautiful cinematography, great visual effects and patient editing.
The Report - Truth and idealism versus the administrative state
THE REPORT
Truth and idealism versus the administrative state
The film boils down to the idea of truth and morality versus the administrative state, and a country not living up to its ideals. With America more polarised than ever, this film couldn’t be more timely.
Ford v Ferrari - A racing biopic that's right on track
FORD v FERRARI
A racing biopic that's right on track
An impressive biopic that rarely strays from its path. A melding of entertainment and creativity, this should be considered both a commercial and critical success.
Dark Whispers Vol. 1 - A spooky anthology from Australia's female horror directors
DARK WHISPERS VOL. 1
A spooky anthology from Australia's female horror directors
After flicking through every page and watching the eerie stories brought to life by 11 talented Australian female filmmakers, you’ll quickly decide on your own favourites and be left wanting more.
Doctor Sleep - Here’s 'The Shining' Stephen King has been waiting for
DOCTOR SLEEP
Here’s 'The Shining' Stephen King has been waiting for
Some 'Shining' fans will see it as a perfect follow-up, others will deem it too different. It’s a fun supernatural horror aided by fantastic performances by Rebecca Ferguson and Kyliegh Curran.
Pain and Glory - Almodóvar delivers a rhapsodic masterwork
PAIN AND GLORY
Almodóvar delivers a rhapsodic masterwork
A portrait of an artist entering the last act of their lives, looking back at what they have created and the battlefield left in their wake, and facing the fear of never creating again.
Emu Runner - Another great win for Indigenous storytelling
EMU RUNNER
Another great win for Indigenous storytelling
With incredible cinematography, this film supports the creation and telling of Indigenous stories, by Indigenous people, with Indigenous actors.
The Furies - A bloody well-executed gorefest
THE FURIES
A bloody well-executed gorefest
Aside from boasting gruesome gore effects, it also has impressive acting from its female leads and some thoughtful twists to its premise that elevate it above the masses of low-budget horror flicks.
The Addams Family - They're altogether boring, the Addams Family
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
They're altogether boring, the Addams Family
Yet another bland, boring animated kids film. It isn’t terribly insulting to the Addams legacy because it feels so far removed from it. Don’t waste your time; just show your kids the 90s films.
Monster Fest 2019 - The reviews
MONSTER FEST 2019
The reviews
The SWITCH team has gathered together the best of the best of this year's Monster Fest and collected them together in one convenient place.
47 Metres Down: Uncaged - Fails to surface
47 METRES DOWN: UNCAGED
Fails to surface
If there’s anything that these last four decades of ‘Jaws’ knock-offs and wannabes have taught us, it’s that it takes a Steven Spielberg-level talent to make a great movie about a killer shark.
The Golem - A horrifying spin on Jewish folklore
THE GOLEM
A horrifying spin on Jewish folklore
The film emphasises humanity over inhumanity not only by being a slick-looking period piece featuring an underused monster, but also an immersive morality tale that is as hopeful as it is horrific.
3 From Hell - They should have stayed there
3 FROM HELL
They should have stayed there
This shambling revenant of a film is something that might only be appreciated by the most indiscriminate midnight-movie crowd and diehard fans of the series.
Terminator: Dark Fate - Say Hasta La Vista, you won't want to be back
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE
Say Hasta La Vista, you won't want to be back
It’s an adequate addition in a messy franchise, featuring wasted opportunities for iconic characters balanced with well-established action sequences. It’s a fine follow up, and sadly nothing more.
