The Dead Don't Die - A zombie comedy that's anything but grave
THE DEAD DON'T DIE
A zombie comedy that's anything but grave
A luxuriously paced, wittily gory zombie comedy, it’s part social commentary, part homage to cinema, and all ridiculous. You’d be dead right to want to check it out.
Young Ahmed - A disappointment from a world of talent
YOUNG AHMED
A disappointment from a world of talent
There's just an inherent "something" missing here that could be blamed on a number of factors, all of which stem from behind the camera.
Portrait of a Lady on Fire - A perfect film on the language of desire
PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE
A perfect film on the language of desire
This is a rare and precious film, breathtaking in its craft and intensely honest in its passions, and one of the best films of this or any year. This is great, great cinema.
Pain and Glory - Pedro Almodóvar delivers a rhapsodic masterwork
PAIN AND GLORY
Pedro 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.
In My Blood It Runs - An eye-opening tale of struggling Indigenous youth
IN MY BLOOD IT RUNS
An eye-opening tale of struggling Indigenous youth
The documentary excels in never sensationalising any aspect of Dujuan's story for dramatic effect; simply capturing Dujuan's daily life is enough to make blood boil and tears fall.
The Biggest Little Farm - A documentary with lessons on sustainable farming and family
THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM
A documentary with lessons on sustainable farming and family
This film documents how we should live: with an appreciation of the balance of Mother Nature, and with a fearless tenacity to live out our dreams.
Les Misérables - A remarkably thrilling act of cinematic protest
LES MISÉRABLES
A remarkably thrilling act of cinematic protest
A remarkable, electrifying and ultimately shattering film, a stellar debut for Ladj Ly, and most importantly, a work that feels necessary. It's a thrilling act of cinematic protest.
The Peanut Butter Falcon - Wholesome and heartfelt
THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON
Wholesome and heartfelt
It's a comedy that is as sweet and unique as its main star, and points towards a bright future for disabled inclusivity in film.
