    ★★★★

    Alex Garland follows his excellent Ex Machina with another thought-provoking science-fiction film, this time to tackle issues like depression and self-destruction. Full review on filmotrope.com/annihilation

    The Ladies Man

    ★★★½

    When it isn't funny (which happens quite frequently, to be honest), at least it holds out attention, but when it is, the film can make you laugh until you wet your pants (especially in a hilarious scene with Buddy Lester). Too bad it almost gets lost in its uneven last half hour.

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★½

    Park Chan-Wook explores the power of narrative (the way you tell a story and its ramifications), creating another astounding visual spectacle full of dark humor, sexual desire, betrayal and revenge, with intense performances and a wonderful production design, editing and score.

    The Rover

    ★★★★

    A suffocatingly tense and bleak thriller that throws us in a gritty post-collapse Australia with two stellar performances: Guy Pearce in a role that is so absolutely complex, intense and revealing, counterpoised by an impressive acting delivered by Robert Pattinson.
