    Extraordinary in form, ‘ordinary’ in content, Boyhood is ambitious, intimate and unforgettable. It might just be the apex of Linklater’s life’s work.

    A horror film that will haunt your waking hours for weeks. Every frame of It Follows is stamped with nameless dread.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    A heated, hysterical battle between Apatow smarts and Animal House smirks. Subtlety takes a hazing, but humour emerges with honours.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    A moving morality tale set in a world rarely seen in western cinema, Metro Manila is an underdog drama that feels as authentic as it is original.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    Cool as you like one second, camp as Christmas the next, this entertainingly overpumped action-horror will have genre fans (and their mums) grinning from ear to ear.

    '71
    A brutal army thriller that feels like the truth, thanks to take-no-prisoners storytelling and a tell-no-lies performance from Jack O’Connell.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Despite some striking imagery and sterling FX work, Welsh writer/director Caradog W James’ expert use of limited resources doesn’t stretch as far as the subtlety-averse script.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    It ebbs away at the climax, but there’s 45 minutes where it sings loud and strange.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Exciting, in places, though a stranger to subtlety, it ticks all the genre boxes, but there’s something about its knowing noirisms that feels superficial rather than soaked-in.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Though its influences (Badlands, early Coens) are writ large, and the denouement disappoints, the performances convince, the dialogue captivates and the sense of backwater boredom is overpowering.

    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Harper’s well-appointed sequel has strong performances even if the Woman becomes a supporting character in her own tale.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    A sombre crimer that resists easy thrills, investing instead in grit, intelligence and complex characterisation.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    A challenging watch, steeped in numbing horror.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Slick but overstretched, Predestination deserves respect for what it tries to achieve rather than dismissal for not getting there. Either way, you will not be bored.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Glasby
    Writer/directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s debut explores over-familiar territory and suffers from fiercely ponderous pacing.
