    Frustrating, funny at points, heartbreaking and quite magnificently shot throughout, Leviathan is one of the films of the year.
    • 85 Metascore

    Passionate and expertly crafted, this black-and-white opus is well worth seeking out.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Phil de Semlyen
    A vibrant, haunting documentary, and a poignant tribute to a free spirit.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Phil de Semlyen
    A bold, honest film about family life that showcases a terrifically unpeppy turn from Bejo.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Phil de Semlyen
    A stomping good documentary.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Phil de Semlyen
    Moving, complex and brutal, it's an outstanding film about men at war.

    It might veer towards hagiography at times, but its subject is so entertaining you don't even care.

    Minnie’s inner life, a fantasia of animations appearing Crumb-like around her, is dazzling, and there’s plenty of naked emotion amid the sex, drugs and hand-drawn penises.

    A treat for cricket fans who'll thrill to this nostalgic look back at one of sport's greatest teams.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Phil de Semlyen
    Compelling performances and beautifully told heroics but the pacing is flawed in terms of a thrilling cinematic experience.
    • 51 Metascore

    A more restrained effort from Araki than the headrush of Kaboom, there’s plenty of fun to be had in Eva Green’s Joan Crawford-esque turn as the vanished lady
    • 50 Metascore

    A curveball from the man who made "2012" and "Independence Day" and probably only a brief respite for the world's major cities.It's more of an interesting curio to a blockbuster career but there's fun to be had here if you look hard enough.

    The performances are solid - Goodbye Lenin! actor Florian Lukas is the standout - but ponderous pacing makes this true-life tale a lot less enthralling than it might have been.
