Being Impossible - Aiming to start the conversation about all kinds of representation
BEING IMPOSSIBLE
Aiming to start the conversation about all kinds of representation
Intersexual people are not something that is discussed nor understood by a huge section of society. For this reason, the film should be celebrated, even if it’s not as strong as it wants to be.
The Goalkeeper - Bolivian Sex Trafficking and a fallen soccer great
THE GOALKEEPER
Bolivian Sex Trafficking and a fallen soccer great
There’s too much plot to make this a character piece, and too much character to make it plot-driven. Nor is it balanced. It only has two acts, needing a better middle to really hook the audience.
Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion - The classic comics get a touch of magic
WIN ASTERIX: THE SECRET OF THE MAGIC POTION
The classic comics get a touch of magic

Midsommar: The Director's Cut - Ari Aster elevates an already remarkable film to a masterpiece
MIDSOMMAR: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT
Ari Aster elevates an already remarkable film to a masterpiece
With his director's cut, Ari Aster has elevated an already incredible film to the status of a masterpiece.
Fuck You All: The Uwe Boll Story - A sympathetic portrait of the ultimate Hollywood outsider
FUCK YOU ALL: THE UWE BOLL STORY
A sympathetic portrait of the ultimate Hollywood outsider
Sean Patrick Shaul’s documentary on Boll's life and career explores his background, how he broke into the industry, and why he developed such a bad reputation amongst fans of films and video games.
Locusts - A low-key, low-down thriller
LOCUSTS
A low-key, low-down thriller
It might be an imperfect movie with a few scenes that ring hollow, but the moments that work are fuller than many whole films.
Ad Astra - A luscious and meticulous space drama
AD ASTRA
A luscious and meticulous space drama
This is about as art house as Hollywood cinema gets. While a journey to the outer realms of our solar system, ‘Ad Astra’ is also an exploration of the human heart.
Dora and the Lost City of Gold - Dora meets Indiana Jones (and a song about poop)
DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD
Dora meets Indiana Jones (and a song about poop)
'Dora' is great. It’s cute and fun, exciting and with plenty of self-deprecating humour and Latin flavour, and boasts great messages about fitting in and being yourself
Long Day's Journey into Night - Art and technology meet in a dream-like film noir
LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT
Art and technology meet in a dream-like film noir
The protagonist’s myth-like search into his physical and metaphysical past is a feat of filmmaking that's as impressive as it is vital, where dream and fantasy and longing flow together.
Braid - A dark and unhinged fairytale
BRAID
A dark and unhinged fairytale
Rooted in Polanski-like psycho horror and with an ending that is interpretively ambiguous, this film leaves something to be desired as a story.
Granny Poetry Club - Growing old, friendship, learning and poetry
GRANNY POETRY CLUB
Growing old, friendship, learning and poetry
This documentary tracks a group of unlikely people in a very peculiar and undocumented situation. It's a reminder that age is but a number, and we are only as limited as we think we are.
Dreamland - Surrealist noir
DREAMLAND
Surrealist noir
Equal parts violent, tragic, comic, silly and surreal, this is an extremely strange movie, and that strangeness will either endear it to you or alienate you.
Inseparable Bros - A heartwarming tale about disability and the power of friendship
INSEPARABLE BROS
A heartwarming tale about disability and the power of friendship
This is one of those heartwarming tearjerkers that's sure to be an instant crowd-pleaser, showcasing not only the power of friendships but of disabled friendships.
Tone-Deaf - A horror in its execution only
TONE-DEAF
A horror in its execution only
A pointless, dull, drawn-out attempt at horror. The only reason it’ll leave you screaming is out of boredom.

Downton Abbey - Transition from TV to film not as classy as expected
DOWNTON ABBEY
Transition from TV to film not as classy as expected
The film seems more like an extended TV special rather than a theatrical film, but fans won’t be mad to see it on the big screen.
The Spy Gone North - Engrossing espionage escapades
THE SPY GONE NORTH
Engrossing espionage escapades
You don’t need to know much about Korean politics to enjoy it; you only need an appreciation for political intrigue and tension-inducing filmmaking.
Freaks - Slow-burn science-fiction drama
FREAKS
Slow-burn science-fiction drama
The picture works intuitively, letting you try to figure things out on your own while focusing on what’s going on. This is the work of growing filmmakers who are clearly only getting started.
The Art of Self-Defense - A satire as pitch-black as a karate belt
THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE
A satire as pitch-black as a karate belt
A truly funny, dark experience that will polarise audiences, hopefully leaving most of them satisfied. Just try not to think about it too much.
Mantis Nest - A murder mystery ménage à trois
MANTIS NEST
A murder mystery ménage à trois
Deceptively complex and richly told, the film explores an array of cultural, religious, socioeconomic and familial tensions. It also sustains strong characters, deep emotions and clear dramatic force.
Swing Kids - A war film in its own league
SWING KIDS
A war film in its own league
The film should be commended for its ambition, even if it doesn’t always manage to juggle all its balls as well as wants to. It's a breath of fresh air for a film set in wartime.
Bangla - A truly beautiful mess
BANGLA
A truly beautiful mess
An impressive feature debut that offers a multicultural romance with a wonderfully tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. It’s the perfect film for a light, fluffy evening at the cinema.
Angel of Mine - Less than heavenly
ANGEL OF MINE
Less than heavenly
There are some interesting moments and solid performances, but more often than not, the film simply doesn’t deliver as a viscerally unsettling thriller, tense psychodrama or even as a soap opera.
