    Pulled from the news but punched up to fever pitch, Sicario represents the perfect mix of cerebral and visceral thrills. Star, director and screenwriter all bring their A-game.

    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.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    The best sci-fi trilogy you’ve never seen amalgamated into one organic whole. Surprising, exciting and, at times, strangely beautiful.
    • 76 Metascore

    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.

    A modest, moving film, Rosewater goes to show that quiet outrage can speak as loud as any atrocity.

    '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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    Original, engrossing and extremely confrontational, The Tribe treads the dark path between misery porn and masterpiece.
    • 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.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    Exhilarating and exhausting in equal measure – a decent approximation of how the characters feel – Mommy puts us through every setting on the emotional wringer.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    Ends up an impressive addiction drama. Stay with it and it’ll stay with you.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    Slasher smarts with guts and heart. Town is no Scream but it’s still one of the most entertaining, enterprising remakes in recent memory.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    A minor-key appraisal of modern marriage that manages to be funny, sad and, sadly, true – just don’t watch it on your anniversary.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    A once-in-a-lifetime subject, sensitively brought to the screen, the Angulos’ story makes the strange seem ordinary and the ordinary, insane.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Matt Glasby
    Bleak as a morgue, even more brutal than the play, Kurzel’s stark psycho-drama can’t unseat its source, but is still mighty screen Shakespeare.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    It ebbs away at the climax, but there’s 45 minutes where it sings loud and strange.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Harper’s well-appointed sequel has strong performances even if the Woman becomes a supporting character in her own tale.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Required viewing as a critique of US foreign policy but forgettable as a drama, Good Kill is a timely warning, even if it lacks the power of the horrors it depicts.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Hyena may be grim, but it’s also grimly engrossing in a way that gets under the skin.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    A challenging watch, steeped in numbing horror.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    Very tame, but saved from the remake scrapheap by Sam Rockwell's surprisingly touching performance and a final reel that – briefly – takes the material somewhere new.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Matt Glasby
    A sombre crimer that resists easy thrills, investing instead in grit, intelligence and complex characterisation.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Glasby
    Writer/directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s debut explores over-familiar territory and suffers from fiercely ponderous pacing.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Glasby
    Coasting on charismatic performances and a quality crew, Gosling’s debut proves two things: screenwriting is hard, and stylish and stylised are very different things.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Matt Glasby
    A facepalm of a film that places no value on life or limb yet still expects the audience to, this sub-par shoot-’em-up plays out like Four Rooms’ fifth part.
