Film Reviews

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler

A few films have attempted to fill the "this generation's 'Taxi Driver'" gap, but Dan Gilroy's debut 'Nightcrawler' could come the closest. Jake Gyllenhaal is mesmerising.
Gone Girl

Gone Girl

David Fincher's take on bestselling thriller novel 'Gone Girl' is overflowing with twists without losing sight of its complex characters' inner workings.
Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy

Quite possibly this generation's 'Star Wars', Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' soars.

Even more ridiculous than you'd expect, elderly action cash-in 'Expendables 3' hits a small target with a massive star-studded airstrike.
Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five To Go

Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five To Go

Putting the fun back in a (mostly) living funeral, Monty Python's final live shows are a gift from the comedy gods.

22 Jump Street

Way better than it should be, '22 Jump Street' surpasses '21 Jump Street' for buddy cop chemistry.

A Hard Day's Night: 50th Anniversary Restoration

An iconic band in an iconic film masterpiece, 'A Hard Day's Night' is a great hour and a half's entertainment for any generation of Beatles fans.
An Autumn Afternoon

An Autumn Afternoon

Yasujir┼Ź Ozu's last film was ultimately one of his best. Remaining true to his style of static shots and themes of family obligation to the end, 'An Autumn Afternoon' is a deeply human drama to cherish.
The Raid 2

The Raid 2

The 'Godfather Part II' of action sequels, Gareth Evans follow-up to his brilliant thriller 'The Raid' is a bone-crunching crime masterwork.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The change in tone that the Marvel universe needed, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' wouldn't be out of place among classic 1970s conspiracy thrillers and not just because (an excellent) Robert Redford co-stars.
Under the Skin

Under the Skin

Unforgettable images of seduction and destruction grace Jonathan Glazer's challenging sci-fi drama that boasts Scarlett Johansson's rawest performance.

The Rocket

If you're stuck within the curse of cookie-cutter narratives, give touching coming-of-age drama 'The Rocket' a blast.

The Zero Theorem

Another refreshing blast of innovation and off-the-wall characters keep Terry Gilliam's latest offering both fresh and beguiling.

As brilliant as it is unsettling, Ted Kotcheff's diamond in the rough 'Wake in Fright' is a punishing cinematic experience.
Her

Her

A truly modern romance, Spike Jonze's 'Her' is inventive, heartfelt and beautifully played.
American Hustle

American Hustle

A wonderfully rich, intoxicating picture, David O. Russell's 'American Hustle' offers up some of the year's best writing and performances.
Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor

More intimate than 'Black Hawk Down' but with just as much power, Peter Berg's 'Lone Survivor' makes for riveting entertainment
The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street

A great film but as both Scorsese and DiCaprio have waded through these excesses before, it's hardly original. Given its relentless energy though, you won't complain.
All is Lost

All is Lost

A brave, bare film anchored by Robert Redford's greatest performance, one-man survival drama 'All is Lost' is awash with emotion. Take this voyage.
