The Nightingale

“Dismisses archetypes and relies on brutal history lessons to expose man’s perpetually destructive nature.”

After the Wedding

“There’s talent in front of the camera, but very little in the firm rings true – even as a glorified soap opera.”

Them That Follow

“Unable to find the emotional hook needed to express extremely personal issues.”

Light of My Life

“Casey Affleck’s ability to keep the nervous, albeit silent, energy consistent is an impressive feat.”

Sword of Trust

“A sharply written dark dramedy. Deeper and more meaningful than an average satire.”

The Upside

“Hart and Cranston produce a few sincere moments…but it’s nowhere near memorable.”

If Beale Street Could Talk

“Its slow-burning narrative pairs well with the deep-seated emotion Barry Jenkins is hoping to tap into.”

On the Basis of Sex

“Plays it as safe as possible. Much too conventional to make a worthwhile impression.”


“What ‘Roma’ lacks in standard narrative substance, it makes up for in Cuarón’s skill as a visual storyteller.”

The Favourite

“An acerbic and abrasively funny period piece featuring three of the best female performances of the year.”

Mary, Queen of Scots

“Overlook the sluggish narrative, and it has a lot to say about the rise of women in a male-dominated world.”
