This zombie film is not an action-packed gore-fest. Instead, it poses questions about the nature of humanity and loneliness.
Stylish, with a neat soundtrack and glossy visuals, and violent in a tough and satisfying way, ‘Revenge’ doesn't wallow in some of the uglier things that the films in this genre tend to.
While far from perfect, it’s always a pleasure spending time with the film’s four male stars, led by Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly. If only their material had been a bit richer.
It's an entirely original film debut from Bertrand Mandico, and will especially appeal to those with an interest in gender-bending and fluidity, implied or depicted queerness and sociology.
While ‘Dilili in Paris’ is skewed to a younger audience, there is still a lot to enjoy for astute adults who can appreciate the beauty, art, and literature of its time period.
It's at once questing and intimate, a hypnotic look at the human identity, as an individual as well as part of a collective, through the lens of music and dance.
It takes a lot of pleasure in replicating 1970s visuals with grainy celluloid, saturated lighting and bright primary colours. Just don't watch it with your parents.
It doesn’t aim to be highbrow, sophisticated satire, but it does deliver the laughs. Full of fun, it captures the essence of a beach holiday, and is best enjoyed with a big glass of red wine.
A poignant and extremely well-crafted testament to the scary beauty of young love.
A black and white classic that's a unique cinematic experience, inviting viewers to roam its monolithic halls again and again, feeling like a new film every time.
Despite the deep space setting of the film, it is an inherently human experience. It will be unpalatable for some, an instant classic for others - but the brutality and power of this film is undeniable.
