3/5 90% Happy New Year, Colin Burstead (2018) The Kill List director captures an unruly family's maelstrom of love and hate, compassion and resentment, in a dizzyingly fractured fashion.‐ The Skinny

4/5 No Score Yet Make Me Up (2018) Your eyes are saturated by Maclean's oppressivly bright computer-rendered universe. Her work would prove bludgeoning if it weren't so viciously hilarious.‐ The Skinny

4/5 100% The Eyes of Orson Welles (2018) Seeing the world through Welles' eyes is a wonderful thing; through Cousins' isn't bad either.‐ The Skinny

4/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Brad Bird's fleet-footed sequel reminds us that movies featuring god-like beings can challenge human-sized issues and not take themselves too seriously while doing so.‐ The Skinny

3/5 100% Crystal Swan (2018) The style is effervescent and the dialogue has a screwball zip, but the mood itself is rather melancholy.‐ The Skinny

4/5 No Score Yet Winter Flies (Vsechno bude) (2018) Czech-based, Slovenian-born Olmo Omerzu's lively filmmaking style is full of vivid compositions and wry edits.‐ The Skinny

4/5 No Score Yet The Devil Outside (2018) There's a sense that [writer-director] Hulme is trying deeply to understand why people still feel the need to believe in the Bible's tales of gods and demons.‐ The Skinny

4/5 93% Calibre (2018) What gives Calibre its power in the end is its relentless momentum and a moral heft that should leave you uneasy as the credits roll.‐ The Skinny

4/5 93% Searching (2018) John Cho gives emotional heft to this inventive exploration of a new type of film grammar.‐ The Skinny

2/5 82% Puzzle (2018) The main gripe with Puzzle is it doesn't seem to understand - or at least communicate - what's going on in the head of its own protagonist.‐ The Skinny

4/5 85% My Friend Dahmer (2017) It's easy to imagine serial killers as Hannibal Lecter-style monsters, but remembering that they're real people living banal and sad lives is all the more terrifying.‐ The Skinny

3/5 82% Deadpool 2 (2018) Deadpool 2 is certainly funny, but never as much as it thinks it is (apart from maybe during its truly excellent closing credits sequence).‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
2/5 53% Rampage (2018) Rampage's stupidity knows no bounds, but it's never as much fun as a movie with this low an IQ should be.‐ The Skinny

3/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) John Krasinski mines some gut-wrenching tension out of A Quiet Place's ingenious premise.‐ The Skinny

4/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) Beneath the glossy visuals and the power-pop soundtrack there's something quietly radical about Love, Simon.‐ The Skinny

4/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) Steven Spielberg shakes off his pop cinema cobwebs with a spectacle that combines state-of-the-art CGI with breakneck action and heartwarming characters.‐ The Skinny

5/5 89% Isle of Dogs (2018) This gorgeous and rambunctious stop motion adventure sees Wes Anderson at his most imaginative and loose-limbed.‐ The Skinny

5/5 99% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) Agnès Varda may be barely five feet in her cotton socks, but this moving study of community and memory reminds us she's a colossus.‐ The Skinny

4/5 83% Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour) (2018) Your heart isn't likely to soar during this poetic drama, but it might ache with recognition.‐ The Skinny

4/5 91% The Disaster Artist (2017) Franco clearly has a whale of a time with Wiseau's punch-drunk accent, bizarre mannerisms and dada laugh; it's a staggering piece of mimicry.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2017
3/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) As a palate cleanser for 2017, you could do much worse than Battle of the Sexes, a lightweight but likable sports movie.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Nov 24, 2017
4/5 85% Ingrid Goes West (2017) As with De Niro's deplorable Rupert Pupkin in the similarly themed King of Comedy, you'll find yourself rooting for Aubrey Plaza's psychopathic Ingrid.‐ The Skinny

4/5 100% Paddington 2 (2018) Paul King's crazy rhythms are all his own, packing practically every frame with a sight-gag or goofy reference that will make small screen rewatches endlessly enjoyable.‐ The Skinny

4/5 90% Marjorie Prime (2017) Imagine Blade Runner 2049 on a microbudget or Black Mirror with a turbocharged IQ, and you'll get something close to this soulful and quietly moving sci-fi.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2017
2/5 78% Last Flag Flying (2017) Every punch in Last Flag Flying is blandly pulled in place of platitudes about patriotism and the honour to serve one's country.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2017
4/5 92% Lean on Pete (2018) Despite the increased budget and scope, Andrew Haigh's artistry remains low-key and deeply intimate.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2017
2/5 92% Logan Lucky (2017) Steven Soderbergh returns from his self-imposed retirement with a hillbilly heist movie that has too many funny accents but not enough funny lines.‐ The Skinny

2/5 40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Reynolds and Jackson's cross-country bromance might have raised a smile if only writer Tom O'Connor had bothered to give their characters something remotely funny to say on the journey.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2017
2/5 74% Final Portrait (2018) Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti was famed for his spindly sculptures; Tucci's film feels similarly stretched.‐ The Skinny

4/5 100% Daphne (2017) A film of compassion and soul, with a protagonist at its heart who's sometimes hard to like but easy to adore.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2017
4/5 78% Sweet Virginia (2017) Sweet Virginia's chief assets are its chalk and cheese leads and malevolent atmosphere; smalltown America has rarely looked more desolate and chilling.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2017
4/5 99% God's Own Country (2017) A tender love story that's deeply cinematic and builds to a heart-swelling conclusion free of sentimentality.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2017
3/5 66% Detour (2017) If Detour's setup is over-familiar, the execution is pleasingly novel, while its central trio of archetypes prove as unpredictable as the plot.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
2/5 60% Mad to Be Normal (2018) Mullan fails miserably to let us inside his characters' heads. For a film about psychiatry, that's an inexcusable flaw.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2017
4/5 99% Get Out (2017) A scary, funny and razor sharp social thriller, and the most exciting debut film this year.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Mar 16, 2017
4/5 33% Kuso (2017) Ellison has clearly taken great delight in creating a freakshow designed to offend, but by its end, Kuso might even qualify as moving.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
2/5 81% Handsome Devil (2017) Handsome Devil might be the straightest gay film in the history of cinema; its characters may be queer, but the filmmaking certainly isn't.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
5/5 95% Manchester by the Sea (2016) A shattering and surprisingly hilarious study of death, guilt and family centred on a revelatory performance by the good Affleck brother.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
5/5 86% Donnie Darko (2001) As pop as it is arthouse, as funny as it is tragic, Donnie Darko remains a remarkable one-off that's easy to adore.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2016
2/5 71% Bleed For This (2016) There's little in Bleed for This that you haven't seen before, and lots you've seen far too often.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Nov 28, 2016
4/5 94% Arrival (2016) Denis Villeneuve's Arrival is that rare beast: an awe-inspiring sci-fi that delivers both spectacle and smarts.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
4/5 91% Frantz (2017) As well as stirring up big questions, Frantz will also have you swooning at its romance, and leaning forward to try and unknot its characters' mysteries.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
5/5 94% Matinee (1992) This celebration of art over war is the closest thing Gremlins director Joe Dante has to a lost masterpiece.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2016
4/5 57% The Neon Demon (2016) At its best, The Neon Demon's sound and image combine to create sequences of surreal beauty and sinister menace.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2016
4/5 93% Little Sister (2016) Clark's approach is scrappy but the scuzzy digital aesthetic and herky-jerky camera are the perfect form in which to capture this family's messy emotions.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2016
4/5 96% Little Men (2016) Sachs specialises in low-key melodrama, creating moments of joy and sadness so casually that they take you by surprise.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2016
5/5 89% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) Much is suggested, little explained, but The Childhood of a Leader is rich with allegorical meaning and we're left with plenty to chew on between elliptical episodes.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2016
4/5 79% From Afar (Desde Allá) (2016) A gritty and cinematic study in desire and repression, and a tantalising calling card for first time director Vigas.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2016
4/5 91% Speed Sisters (2017) Speed Sisters may be light but it's never lightweight.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2016
4/5 77% Goosebumps (2015) A goofy kids' horror-comedy that lets RL Stine's monsters, and a hysterically over-the-top Jack Black, run amok‐ The Skinny
