  • The Disaster Artist Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    Tommy Wiseau’s mystery has captivated the underbelly of pop culture for more than a decade, ever since he unleashed The Room on audiences in 2003. A twisted, undecipherable romantic drama, hailed as the “best worst movie” of all time, it has left a unique footprint in cinema, one that brings folks together, gets them laughing and begging for answers to questions like: Who is Tommy Wiseau,…

  • The Shape of Water Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water is a true labor of love for the filmmaker. We’ve seen him tackle mainstream blockbuster material with Pacific Rim and Hellboy, but this new, surreal love story has more in common with his adored 2006 film, Pan’s Labyrinth.

    It holds the same gentle dark fantasy backbone, using dense colours to tell its story, which follows a mute woman, Eliza (Sally…

  • Mother! Review

    In cinema one of the most engaging of elements is a filmmakers ability to provoke, to entice conversation, and have several likeminded people find themselves miles apart in their own interpretation of art, how we can all watch the same thing and yet each seem to watch something so different to the next. In that regard, Darren Aronofsky’s mother! is an astounding triumph, as a feature we can…

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    There is a torturous, biting audio that surrounds Yorgos Lanthimos latest surreal picture, The Killing of a Sacred Deer. It drones on from scene to scene, sometimes leaving completely, but lurking alongside the visual, ready to add that piercing sonic climax.

    We follow cardiologist Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell in full black comedy form, wearing a survivalist beard) as he navigates life or…

  • In The Fade Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    Fatih Akin’s In The Fade is a montage of a mother’s pain and grief, an odyssey through chapter-like pieces — the beginning, middle and end of one woman’s personal destruction and how she comes to deal with it. Akin (The Cut) also looks at the rise of far-right extremism in Germany and the repercussions that come with a violence answered with violence mindset. Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds)…

  • Borg/McEnroe Review

    The life of Bjorn Borg has enough about it to sustain a feature length film, it’s just a shame we’d gone in expecting something entirely different.

  • Hostiles Review (Toronto International Film Festival)

    Scott Cooper (Black Mass) returns to dark, brooding territory with Christian Bale vehicle, Hostiles. A Western so harrowing and bleak that it will leave you stone faced exhausted, struggling to get through the very first act, where things begin with a sprinkling of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly then quickly turn sinister.

    Bale seems to have shed his skin and placed his spirit in the 1890s…
