REVIEW - THE CLAN (PABLO TRAPERO)
Gangster movies are rather less common than you might consider, at least within mainstream studio or arthouse fare. So it's consistently disappointing, though never surprising, when the next new gangster drama follows that same well-trodden path, that same ...

REVIEW - THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (COLM MCCARTHY)
A zombie apocalypse movie which uses its premise not so much as a platform on which to build shocks and scares, but a sage dissection of what it means to be human, both in how it defines us and in how we choose to express our humanity. Indeed, The Girl with...

REVIEW - THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (ANTOINE FUQUA)
For all that Antoine Fuqua may be a forceful director, ever seeking a dynamic set-piece and a capable director of action, he's a dismal storyteller. Tasked with remaking a classic remake of another classic, and handed a promising script by Nic Pizzolatto an...

LFF 2016 PREVIEW: AFTER THE STORM

REVIEW - HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE (TAIKA WAITITI)
A gleefully absurd, caustic Kiwi comedy from Taika Waititi, more than proving his worth again as a writer of great skill, and also as a director of unexpected perspicacity. Hunt for the Wilderpeople may be too devoted to the regressive cliches it employs, e...

REVIEW - FROM AFAR (LORENZO VIGAS)
Lorenzo Vigas explores the details of distance - physical, emotional, psychological - in From Afar, an ironically intimate insight into the lives of those whose own insight is stymied by society. Simmering underneath the film is the constant, oppressive dri...
