    Tigers Are Not Afraid

    ★★★★★

    Reviewed for Hero Collector.

    My fourth favourite film at this year's FrightFest (I've adjusted my initial FrightFest Top Ten, bumping it ahead of Summer of '84 and Braid).

    Short version: "Haunting, suspenseful and deeply moving, this is a beautifully made and superbly acted debut feature that deserves to be seen on the big screen before it inevitably winds up on VOD. Don't miss it; it's wonderful."

    This doesn't quite live up to that poster. Some good stuff in it, but it lost its way a little at times too.

    One of the best films I saw at Sheff Doc/Fest. A beautifully made, strikingly personal coming-of-age story about three skateboarding friends, whose lives are all touched, in different ways, by domestic abuse. Really hope this gets a proper theatrical release soon.

    Not without its problems but a lot of fun. And the X-Men movies could learn a lot about giving X-Men fans what they want from this.
