    Hogg achieves remarkable results with the most minimal of means. Camerawork and editing are consistently on the money, while performances and dialogue feel utterly fresh, spontaneous and believable.

    An exceptional animated feature from Spain, Wrinkles imaginatively and sensitively explore one of the major issues confronting most of the developed world: how to look after senior citizens in a rapidly aging population.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Neil Young
    A superbly sensual character study of a young woman navigating emotional and professional crossroads.

    Derki and his experienced editor Anne Fabini have crafted a sober, sobering bulletin of unambiguous intention and undeniable power.

    • 90 Neil Young
    Meru is an engaging and cumulatively exhilarating debut from wife-and-husband team Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin.

    • 90 Neil Young
    Berliner crafts a quietly touching and illuminating memento mori from the steady dying of an intellectual light.

    The last couple of years in one tragically truncated life are chronicled with a winning combination of sensitivity and humor in I Am Breathing.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Augustine's script is a coherent and valid artistic reinterpretation of the case, told against an unfussily atmospheric evocation of late 19-century Paris - persuasive even though the dialogue seldom sounds particularly old-fashioned.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    A pungently immersive evocation of traveling on Chinese trains.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    With all farces, timing and rhythms are absolutely crucial and Zulawski — working with editor Julia Gregory — maintains a disarming brio from the very first seconds.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Skilfully manipulating romantic and social frictions which in lesser hands might have come across as soapily melodramatic, Rauniyar and Barker construct a parable-like tale whose allegorical aspects are there for those who wish to find them. But their priority is the creation of believable characters in a pungently atmospheric setting.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Much like the legendary glam-metal band whose grindingly arduous rise to fame it lovingly chronicles, shock-rock-doc We Are Twisted F—ing Sister! is superficially "controversial" (profanity in the title!), essentially conventional, but very, very, very entertaining.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    While this near two-hour feature debut does betray occasional signs of inexperience, on the whole it's a work of striking confidence.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    While wall-to-wall music is generally the bane and blight of contemporary documentaries, here Honigmann sensitively interpolates generous helpings of the orchestra's recordings to envelopingly persuasive effect.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    [A] solidly effective addition to Britain's social realism tradition, elevated by excellent performances by the young leads and some unexpectedly poetic touches.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Neil Young
    Rising to the challenge of delivering a rousing finale, Hosoda does sock over a spectacular climactic battle on and below the streets of Tokyo with imaginative aplomb.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    As a poetic dispatch from society's lower depths, Field Niggas is an oblique but inescapably topical slice of slick but rough-edged humanism — a polyphonic roundelay that hits some powerfully discordant notes before the director decides to start tooting his own horn.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    De Oliveira evokes the suffocating, stultifying confines of the family dwelling all too convincingly, to an extent that requires considerable indulgence and attention from his audience. This investment is duly repaid in the second half.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A phantasmagorical vision of psychological purgatory, Horse Money (Cavalo dinheiro) will enrapture some while leaving others dangling in frustrated limbo.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Making potent use of spectacularly extraterrestrial locations in the country's sunbaked far north around the ghost town of Dallol, the film takes an exotic and sometimes surreal approach to what's essentially a simple, touching love story.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A luminous central performance from Golshifteh Farahani distinguishes an ambitious if somewhat monotonously wordy adaptation of a prize-winning best-seller.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    [A] claustrophobically discomfiting but quizzically comic study of social unease and embarrassment.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A bit of community spirit and camaraderie, it seems, can go a very long way, and sequences of spectacularly dystopian-apocalyptic, third-world bleakness are leavened by moments of incongruous beauty, even grace.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case is a professional, straightforward example of the behind-the-headlines sub-genre, executed in slick high-toned digital video and eschewing the soundtrack music so ubiquitous in documentaries nowadays.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A solid example of low-key, well-observed, humanistically sympathetic ethnography.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    The smartest touch of Burman's bouncy, unobtrusively informative screenplay is to make Usher such a dominant offscreen presence before he finally shows up in the closing minutes.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    An upbeat chronicle of very hard rock in a very hard place, Death Metal Angola is one of the livelier and more enticingly exotic additions to the ever-burgeoning music-documentary sub-genre.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A confident and quietly promising feature debut from director/co-writer Fellipe Barbosa.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    A conventionally mounted tribute to a genial, decidedly British form of eccentricity.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Neil Young
    This quietly impassioned indictment of child-labor takes its time to get going but then builds steadily to a surprisingly strong finale.
