REVIEW - FIRE AT SEA (GIANFRANCO ROSI)
My country has turned its back on these people. An island nation of whites, condemning countless brown and black faces to dehydrate and drown on waters mere miles from our own, mere miles that yet we've found all too easy to ignore, an ease that seems set t...

REVIEW - WARCRAFT (DUNCAN JONES)
It's too easy to scoff at a film like Warcraft. It offers no promise of hope, no suggestion of respite from the overbearing vulgarity of its style, lifted so faithfully from its video game source. Here is a work of art that engages with the language of a fo...

OBIT - ANTON YELCHIN
Sad news from California, as actor Anton Yelchin has been declared dead following a car accident. He was a mere 27 years of age. A bright young star with many fans, thanks to a resume of impressive performances in well-regarded films, he will be much missed...

REVIEW - THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT (KYLE PATRICK ALVAREZ)
The hazy clarity of fact transposed into the clear haze of fiction. The Stanford Prison Experiment is the sensationalization of an event that didn't need sensationalized, the simplification of a story that didn't need simplified, and nevertheless an inheren...

REVIEW - VERSUS: THE LIFE AND FILMS OF KEN LOACH (LOUISE OSMOND)
An ideal accompaniment to the works of Ken Loach, in that it illustrates that which engenders them, drives them, stands responsible for their existence. An ideal starter course for the unfamiliar audience too, for the very same reasons. Neither a biopic nor...

REVIEW - THE NICE GUYS (SHANE BLACK)
Giddy rambunctiousness fuels Shane Black's The Nice Guys , a frothy and foul step back in time that can't help but court one gross lapse in judgement after another. It gets away with it, given Black's steadfast appreciation of the exact position of every li...

REVIEW - THE EXQUISITE CORPUS (PETER TSCHERKASSKY)
If every film is, in fact, a documentary, in that it serves as a document of the creative process that engendered it, specifically that of the creation of the images on screen, Peter Tscherkassky's The Exquisite Corpus is not merely a documentary film but a...

REVIEW - THE CONJURING 2 (JAMES WAN)
The horror movie mini-masterclass continues. The Conjuring 2 conjures up faith in a story long since proved false; James Wan's manipulation of the truth is rather easier to submit to than the mental manipulations his audience must do. Give into this film's ...

REVIEW - APPROACHING THE UNKNOWN (MARK ELIJAH ROSENBERG)
Approaching the Unknown boasts simple aspirations, and thus fails on simple terms. Short, straightforward and characterized by a scarcity of actual identifiable content (equally an indicator of the film's low budget as of its writer-director's creative inep...

REVIEW - THE ONES BELOW (DAVID FARR)
Keeping you guessing and keeping you caring - the dramatic thriller has two basic requirements, interconnected and virtually essential for their success. Though the ends somewhat justify the means in The Ones Below, and also though David Farr's film makes s...

REVIEW - THE MEASURE OF A MAN (STEPHANE BRIZE)
The artistic landscape, dominated as it is by grand concepts and visions, by theories rather than truths, aspiration rather than compliance, fantasy rather than reality. Here is a film that rejects these trends, instead embraces those qualities of life that...

REVIEW - COURTED (CHRISTIAN VINCENT)
The simple pleasures, somewhat undone by their simplicity. And a simple reason why Courted doesn't quite succeed: gentle, passive, intentionally inert, much as Christian Vincent's film may satisfy at first, the lack of dramatic or stylistic verve that was o...
