    Gook

    ★★★

    What it lacks in subtlety and tonal consistency, Gook makes up for with its solid performances, relevant social themes and authentic, if somewhat chaotic storytelling.

  • Beach Rats

    Beach Rats

    ★★★½

    Elevated by newcomer Harris Dickinson's delicate and haunting performance, Hittman's sophomore feature offers an authentic depiction of modern-day adolescence and an absorbing, dream-like coming-of-age character study in search of a deeper, more challenging story.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Ferocious. Epic. Metaphorical. Hallucinatory. Primal. Operatic. Dystopian. Mythological. Uncompromising. Revolutionary.

    A true marvel of action choreography and an instant cult-classic, Mad Max: Fury Road is a breathlessly exhilarating and gloriously orchestrated cautionary tale that sets a new gold standard for action cinema with its visceral blend of relentless, testosterone-fueled, high-octane visual extravaganza, propulsive momentum, fearless direction, otherworldly creativity, unapologetic feminism, poetic grace and rich emotional crescendo that thrills, dazzles, stirs, shocks, and entertains in equal measures.

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★★

    A visually, sonically and emotionally ravishing cinematic gem, The Grand Budapest Hotel dazzles with its kaleidoscopic beauty, endearing melancholy, offbeat quirkiness, delightful whimsy, ambitious scope, meticulous craftsmanship, hyper-stylized glory and magical theatricality, cementing Anderson’s status as one of the most exciting, inspiring and visionary auteurs of his generation.
