Australian filmmaker Grant Sputore's direction keeps viewers on their toes, and we never quite know who to trust.

It's an exciting film to watch, but an even better one to think about after - preferably in the company of a real, physically present person.

June 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It's rich material, handled brilliantly by first-time feature director Grant Sputore, a West Australian, working from an intelligently wrought screenplay from American Michael Lloyd-Green.

June 20, 2019 | Full Review…

An intriguing premise, fine performances and a string of startling reveals that just keeps on coming make this Australian sci-fi film a real winner -- and a must-watch for the Black Mirror set.

June 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Frustrating but engrossing, and impossible to critique in-depth without spoilers because it's driven by regular plot twists.

June 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Rugaard, a Danish-Irish 21-year-old, feels like a major discovery - she's the not-so-secret motor of I Am Mother, a dynamic presence that lends blood, guts and soul to this dystopic vision.
