    ★★★½

    Low-key but compelling look at the mental breakdown of a celebrated German superstar techno DJ, who is played by a real-life figure from that scene, Paul Kalkbrenner.

    The neophyte actor is pretty moving and commanding in the central role (shame this seems to be his only credit) and electronic music connoisseurs will really dig the beats, most of which are also provided by the film's star.

    A remarkable and sobering piece of work. Couldn't be a more timely and relevant discourse on social injustice.‬ Essential Netflix viewing.

    ★★★½

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.

    ★★★½

    Ti West may have disowned it but there's a lot to like about this twisted sequel. Porky's by way of John Waters and Troma.
