    ★★★½

    An LAPD detective must face her traumatic past when the leader of a gang of criminals she infiltrated 16 years ago resurfaces. Good gritty LA noir with a powerful performance from Nicole Kidman.

  • The Untamed

    The Untamed

    ★★★★

    A mysterious woman enters the lives of a gay nurse, his unhappily married sister and his unfaithful brother-in-law. The woman introduces them to a mysterious force that lives in the woods that may hold the key in changing their lives for the better, or for the worse. Amat Escalante who’s films are socially conscious slice of life dramas about working class Mexicans, gives us a refreshing and interesting take on the subject matter by adding elements of science fiction.

    The Shape of Water

    Another miss from Guillermo Del Toro. Along with Three Billboards this is one of the most overrated films of the year. Pan's Labyrinth & Crimson Peak were much better than this wannabe 1960's Jean-Pierre Jeunet meets Tim Burton knock off. Feels like it was made by a teenager obsessed with sex and violence that's trapped in the body of a middle-aged man who still believes in fairy tales.

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★½

    The friendship between a teen-age boy and a heart surgeon slowly begins to unravel its sinister motives. An interesting film that combines the techniques of three legendary directors: the visuals of Stanley Kubrick, the deadpan acting of Robert Bresson and the surrealness of Luis Buñuel. After his excellent English language debut of The Lobster, Yorgos Lanthimos does it again.
