Never Rarely Sometimes Always - The film every teenager needs to see
NEVER RARELY SOMETIMES ALWAYS
The film every teenager needs to see
A heartbreaking and powerful experience that should be considered one of the year's most essential watches. Its commitment to authentically tell an all-too-common story only adds to its power.
The Surrogate - Raising heavy yet important questions
THE SURROGATE
Raising heavy yet important questions
While the film has a few hiccups, the package as a whole comes across as a truly moving experience that challenges the audience's morals with really thought-provoking dialogue.
Hope Gap - Enough hope, but too many gaps
HOPE GAP
Enough hope, but too many gaps
Audiences certainly feel that there is hope, but the gaps along the way are too frequent to feel any genuine satisfaction. Go for the acting masterclass, stay for the gorgeous seaside.
Rams - Baaa-ck off
RAMS
Baaa-ck off
With the main plot wrapped up 40 minutes in, the rest is padded out with bland, forgettable drama. The focus of the film should be on the relationship between the brothers (Sam Neill & Michael Caton).
Charlie's Angels - Kicking butt, inverting feminist tropes & being independent for 20 years
CHARLIE'S ANGELS
Kicking butt, inverting feminist tropes & being independent for 20 years

My Little Sister - A moving and sensitive portrayal on the effects of illness
MY LITTLE SISTER
A moving and sensitive portrayal on the effects of illness
For an emotional, moving and sensitive narrative, this film generally hits the right notes, and even when it doesn't, the calibre of performances make it a worthwhile viewing experience.
Honest Thief - An honestly average time
HONEST THIEF
An honestly average time
It has an engaging enough premise aided with a decent cast that is worth checking out - just don't expect to be blown away or fully invested in this one.
Feels Good Man - From stoner frog to bonafide hate symbol
FEELS GOOD MAN
From stoner frog to bonafide hate symbol
Arthur Jones tells an absorbing story about how something as simple as a cartoon frog can be easily co-opted and corrupted to become a symbol of pure malevolence.
Possessor - Engrossingly gross Cronenbergian body horror
POSSESSOR
Engrossingly gross Cronenbergian body horror
A fever dream, delivering unsettling violence, thought-provoking creativity and remorseless direction. Its revelations about the monsters within have a lasting resonance.
Wild Swords - A small-scale but satisfying wuxia mystery
WILD SWORDS
A small-scale but satisfying wuxia mystery
While unlikely to revolutionise the wuxia genre, the film is a satisfying mystery with a handful of sequences that seem almost musical in their graceful choreography and composition.
Blackbird - Star-studded cast saves generic film
BLACKBIRD
Star-studded cast saves generic film
It only flies high thanks to its incredibly strong cast, and although the narrative misses dramatic beats, still packs an emotional punch while adding to the conversation about legalised euthanasia.

Baby Done - Pregnancy has a hilarious new poster child - thank you, New Zealand
BABY DONE
Pregnancy has a hilarious new poster child - thank you, New Zealand
A comedy gem done in a way that only the New Zealanders seem to be able to do, and do so well. It will strike quite the nerve with both men and women, doing so with a wink and a smile and many laughs.
Corpus Christi - Dreams, deceit and salvation
CORPUS CHRISTI
Dreams, deceit and salvation
Featuring some beautiful images of the Polish countryside, this is a powerful story of sacrifice and redemption.
How to Build a Girl - Almost fully built
HOW TO BUILD A GIRL
Almost fully built
'How to Build a Girl' is an engaging yet average film, but will perhaps disappoint those hoping for something more from Beanie Feldstein's next move.
Pinocchio - A darkly fantastic adaptation of a classic tale
PINOCCHIO
A darkly fantastic adaptation of a classic tale
Matteo Garrone pulls off something more captivating than a run-of-the-mill Disney-fied bedtime story - his 'Pinocchio' effortlessly fuses adventure, humour and moral instruction through magic realism.
2067 - Muddled sci-fi with an ecological conscience
2067
Muddled sci-fi with an ecological conscience
A well-crafted movie can bring us closer to nature and inspire us to protect it. Despite boasting some scarily relevant themes, the lumpy screenplay of '2067' makes it hard to recommend.
Lovemobil - Sex work and economic necessity in the German countryside
LOVEMOBIL
Sex work and economic necessity in the German countryside
Mixing the beautiful and lurid, this documentary provides audiences with plenty of food for thought. It's filled with moments that thwart stereotypes, revealing the naked heart of its subjects.
Last and First Men - An aeon-spanning arthouse sci-fi tale
LAST AND FIRST MEN
An aeon-spanning arthouse sci-fi tale
Not for everyone. But if you're in the right mood, it's a science fiction film that provides the framework for your imagination to run wild.
Totally Under Control - Watching the dominos fall in the U.S. pandemic catastrophe
TOTALLY UNDER CONTROL
Watching the dominos fall in the U.S. pandemic catastrophe
The story at the centre of this documentary is not one of mistakes and misfortune, but of a known danger being alerted and then wilfully ignored. It's certainly a film that feels necessary right now.
Human Capital - Intangible assets and dramatic payoffs
HUMAN CAPITAL
Intangible assets and dramatic payoffs
An engrossing mystery, this film deserves credit for trying to deal with issues that affect adults, with the talented cast and carefully modulated performances as considerable bonuses.
Irresistible - A behind-the-scenes look into the broken U.S. electoral system
IRRESISTIBLE
A behind-the-scenes look into the broken U.S. electoral system
Despite the incredible and comedically gifted cast and filmmaker, 'Irresistible' is... well, boring. It's interesting as a political commentary but as far as laughs, it's pretty much a snooze.
