Shiva Baby - A comedy of discomfort
SHIVA BABY
A comedy of discomfort
While it may play out like a psychological thriller at times, it's a witty and fun film that may lack originality, but has plenty of energy and memorable moments that make for a confident debut.
2067 - Muddled sci-fi with an ecological conscience
2067
Muddled sci-fi with an ecological conscience
A well-crafted movie can bring us closer to nature and inspire us to protect it. Despite boasting some scarily relevant themes, the lumpy screenplay of '2067' makes it hard to recommend.
How to Build a Girl - Almost fully built
HOW TO BUILD A GIRL
Almost fully built
'How to Build a Girl' is an engaging yet average film, but will perhaps disappoint those hoping for something more from Beanie Feldstein's next move.
Blackbird - Star-studded cast saves generic film
BLACKBIRD
Star-studded cast saves generic film
It only flies high thanks to its incredibly strong cast, and although the narrative misses dramatic beats, still packs an emotional punch while adding to the conversation about legalised euthanasia.
Wild Swords - A small-scale but satisfying wuxia mystery
WILD SWORDS
A small-scale but satisfying wuxia mystery
While unlikely to revolutionise the wuxia genre, the film is a satisfying mystery with a handful of sequences that seem almost musical in their graceful choreography and composition.
My Little Sister - A moving and sensitive portrayal on the effects of illness
MY LITTLE SISTER
A moving and sensitive portrayal on the effects of illness
For an emotional, moving and sensitive narrative, this film generally hits the right notes, and even when it doesn't, the calibre of performances make it a worthwhile viewing experience.
The Surrogate - Raising heavy yet important questions
THE SURROGATE
Raising heavy yet important questions
While the film has a few hiccups, the package as a whole comes across as a truly moving experience that challenges the audience's morals with really thought-provoking dialogue.
