Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
89% Diego Maradona (2019) Diego Maradona incompletely captures the power of the story the man inspired and the fickle nature of mythmaking itself, even if the myth is all we are left with.‐ Hyperallergic

85% The Hottest August (2019) The film becomes a sophisticated exercise in science horror. There's an intricate sensory layer to the storytelling that evokes the rainy summer and its flitting breezes, a creeping shadow of the uncanny cast over its beauty.‐ Hyperallergic

96% Atlantics (2019) [Diop] blends social realism with fantasy and horror into a boldly atmospheric production, a lyrical elegy equal parts mythic and phantasmagoric.‐ MUBI

3/5 95% Little Women (2019) It's the chemistry between the cast that elevates this elegant - if sometimes sentimental - portrayal of motherhood and sisterhood.‐ The Skinny

4/5 99% Amazing Grace (2019) Amazing Grace is a fascinating love song to the Black Church.‐ The Skinny

3/5 100% Knock Down the House (2019) Knock Down the House aims for the easier work of honouring the process, the step forward, and if that is not always rewarding, sometimes it is enough.‐ The Skinny

4/5 82% High Life (2019) For all the film's epic ambitions, mapping intimacy in all its oddness and beauty remains, as with most of Denis' work, at the forefront of this project.‐ The Skinny

2/5 55% Ma (2019) The film toys with very real traumas and avoids every event to engage with them. In the end, what fun there is to be had is shallow.‐ The Skinny

5/5 91% Support the Girls (2018) An empathetic, refreshingly incisive portrait of women at work, principally the work of navigating men, professionally and personally.‐ The Skinny

2/5 58% Pet Sematary (2019) This latest rendition of Pet Sematary is so desperate to carve its own path that it loses sight of what made the tale such an effective one in the first place.‐ The Skinny

3/5 84% The Hole in the Ground (2019) Comparisons to The Changeling and The Omen may well be inescapable, but The Hole in the Ground still manages to carve out a comfortable space for itself ‐ The Skinny

4/5 36% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) A lot here works: it's more tonally assured than its predecessor and, bar certain eye-rolling climatic revelations, exploits the Potter nostalgia fruitfully.‐ The Skinny

2/5 77% Anna and the Apocalypse (2018) There are better zombie films and better musicals, and perhaps they work best apart for a reason.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 91% Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Crazy Rich Asians brims over with charm... It's not an evenly complex portrait of wealth, but it's a film winningly possessed with heart.‐ The Skinny

3/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) The humour and unflappable comedic timing of its cast remains the franchise's strength, and entertaining action sequences manage to uplift an ultimately heavy-handed sequel.‐ The Skinny

3/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) For all its structural flaws, Hotel Artemis makes for a wildly entertaining edition to the summer blockbuster line-up.‐ The Skinny

88% Whitney (2018) Rather than revel purely in her tragicomic status, Whitney highlights the less publicised tragedy of a woman denied ownership, or rather authorship, of her own image, and so in many senses doomed to the imagination of others.‐ Sight and Sound

97% Black Panther (2018) The real stars of Black Panther are its women, both before and behind the camera.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
5/5 82% Brigsby Bear (2017) Brigsby Bear begins as a dark, quirky comedy and ends with an unexpected, lingering emotional punch.‐ The Skinny
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2017
3/5 93% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Thor: Ragnarok plunges headfirst into unbridled comedy and Waititi gives his actors ample room to showcase their natural comedic talents, especially Hemsworth and Blanchett.‐ The Skinny

No Score Yet Lemonade (2016) What begins as a tale of marital infidelity and reconciliation reveals itself to be a pointedly political, aestheticised expression of black resistance.‐ Sight and Sound
