    It’d be easy to dismiss as jaded hipsterism but the film isn’t scared to laugh at itself and the unsustainable lifestyle its protagonists are clinging to.

    There’s little doubt who the hero of Peter Berg’s retelling of the 2013 Boston marathon bombings is: the city itself.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Lanre Bakare
    The storyline does get frayed towards the end...but that’s not really the point; as long as you’re here for the dick jokes.
    • 63 Metascore

    Pesce asks viewers to go along with the absurdity while offering nothing to justify any of it. It’s a murder ballad gone out of tune.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    It’s a kaleidoscopic and vivid rendering of a world that is larger than life, flamboyant but ultimately fragile.
    • 73 Metascore

    What Dream is Destiny makes clear is that commercial success really isn’t everything, and that being a director who isn’t bothered by it can lead to a singular if perhaps undervalued career.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Lanre Bakare
    It’s a beguiling mix of animated storytelling and narration that doesn’t flinch from exploring the emotional highs and lows that accompany a life with autism.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    The will-they-won’t-they dynamic of the film grips you and it’s almost impossible not to root for Strompolos and Zala, especially when things on set get hairy.
    • 58 Metascore

    Q’s morality tale isn’t without laughs. The quizzers are adept at alluding to and meshing together the greats of English literature with crude dick jokes.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    It’s a charming and engaging mix – the antithesis of Metallica’s ego overload, and just as watchable.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    It’s a tight, slick polemic which doesn’t shy from the complexity surrounding the debate or the fact it wants you the viewer to get up and do something about it.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    Buttons will definitely be pushed by White Girl, but after the moral panic hopefully people will still be talking about the film itself.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Lanre Bakare
    A riveting excursion into fear and loathing on the campaign trail.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    It’s a shocking and compelling piece of work.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Lanre Bakare
    The Lure’s premise alone will turn heads but once the novelty wears off the question will remain: where’s the story?
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    For those looking for a ride through our modern technological world, or indeed a preview of what is to come, this is it.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    The film is a pointed, astute and unflinching look at unbridled machismo and its consequences.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Lanre Bakare
    Unfortunately, with the big reveal having arrived in the first act, the film isn’t much more than an elongated debate that leaves you thinking: so what?
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Lanre Bakare
    Mostly, the film is heavy-handed, with subtlety nowhere to be found.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 60 Lanre Bakare
    Manchester-by-the-Sea is a study of family dysfunction and the worse loss imaginable, but one held back by the fact it’s all filtered through Affleck’s withdrawn lead.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    Anyone who has pushed things a bit too far, and woken up with one too many “wtf” mornings, will appreciate how close Belgica has got to replicating hedonism going off the rails.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 80 Lanre Bakare
    Dodgy history and dodgier accents, but Kevin Costner's medieval romp still has some magic – and shouldn't be judged on the weakness of its imitators.
