    Widows

    ★★★½

    A more focused direction and tighter editing would have made Widows the thrilling heist crime thriller it aspires to be, but in its present form, McQueen's highly anticipated follow up to 12 Years a Slave plays more like a gritty and raw, well acted, but painfully slow drama with absurd plot points and a stale socio-political agenda.

    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.
