  • Lucy

    Its lacking in substance, but this is one wild, stylish and kickass piece of escapism.

    July 30, 2014 10:25
  • New World

    While owing a huge debt to ‘The Godfather’, this intricate Korean crime drama is all class.

    July 28, 2014 14:54
  • Rohmer In Paris

    A must-see doco for any cinephile who wants to boost their dinner party conversation skills.

    July 28, 2014 14:35
  • The Keeper Of Lost Causes

    A predictable but stylish affair, which ranks as another solid entry into the canon of Scandinavian crime cinema.

    July 28, 2014 13:35
  • A Most Wanted Man

    Philip Seymour Hoffman’s sublime performance is the main drawcard surrounding this solid but unspectacular drama.

    July 28, 2014 13:22
  • The Selfish Giant

    A stark and soulful adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s children’s tale, which proves devastating but truly inspired.

    July 28, 2014 13:12
  • Some Velvet Morning

    This cryptic and taut two-hander from Neil LaBute digs into some provocative, intriguing territory.

    July 28, 2014 12:57
  • These Final Hours

    Writer/director Zak Hilditch makes a scorching debut feature with this emotionally explosive apocalyptic drama.

    July 28, 2014 12:48
  • Guardians Of The Galaxy

    Marvel’s biggest gamble yet has paid off, with this freewheeling and joyously offbeat superhero blockbuster.

    July 25, 2014 12:53
  • Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie

    Stretched beyond its sitcom formula, d’jokes begin to wear a little thin.

    July 24, 2014 13:34
  • Hercules (3D)

    Director Brett Ratner and Dwayne Johnson deliver a solid popcorn flick, which succeeds in the action and humour stakes.

    July 24, 2014 12:05
  • Snowpiercer

    The characters come second to its ingenious premise, but it still rates as a riveting blockbuster.

    July 24, 2014 10:54
  • Deliver Us From Evil

    Uninspired and downright silly, this is a textbook example of why the horror genre gets a bad rap.

    July 24, 2014 10:15
  • Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

    “…a lively examination of the mysteries surrounding the universe…”

    July 23, 2014 13:21
  • Still Life

    Eddie Marsan delivers a typically top-notch performance in this delicate but thoughtful drama.

    July 22, 2014 14:19
  • Once My Mother

    A deeply personal story of a mother and daughter’s fractured relationship told with wisdom and clarity.

    July 22, 2014 14:11
  • Devil's Knot

    Director Atom Egoyan’s approach to this undeniably compelling material is strangely ambivalent and ultimately frustrating.

    July 22, 2014 13:56
  • Sex Tape

    Rather than exploiting its raunchy premise to offer up something honest, this evolves into a pretty textbook comedy.

    July 17, 2014 11:02
  • Venus In Fur

    Despite a stellar lead performance and its provocative battle-of-the-sexes premise, Polanski’s latest offering fails to transcend its theatrical trappings.

    July 14, 2014 15:19
  • Words And Pictures

    Fine central performances anchor this gentle charmer of a love story.
