Nocturnal Animals

By Manuela Lazic

Tom Ford’s long-awaited follow-up to A Single Man is a gorgeous, wild and wholly frustrating affair.

review

Elvis & Nixon

By Elena Lazic

A lack of contextual depth and contrasting acting styles undermines this offbeat apolitical comedy.

review

Writer/director Jeff Nichols reaches for the stars with this simply awesome sci-fi parable.

Man of Steel

By Jonathan Crocker

Zack Snyder aspires to something greater with this maxed-out comic book epic, but lays it on a little too thick.

review

Take Shelter

By Adam Woodward

More metaphorical tact would turn Take Shelter from a brisk gale to a force five.

review

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done

By Laurence Boyce

This is familiar territory for Werner Herzog – a compelling crime drama and intriguing character study rolled into one.
