  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    Likely to be one of the most divisive films to ever hit cinema screens, Suspiria is a flat-out avante-garde masterpiece of grotesque, sophisticated horror filmmaking, which raises more questions than it gives answers.

    It’s much like waking from a nightmare on a balmy summers night, where in the seconds of rising, confusion and discomfort intoxicate the psyche, breathlessness causes anxiety without control, and not knowing if your surroundings are real or just leftover fragments of a frightening dream.

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★½

    Absolutely sublime! One of the most honest and brazingly accurate depictions of adolescence ever captured on film. Bo Burnham’s assured directing style is just as refreshing as Elsie Fisher’s effortlessly layered performance. Eighth Grade is a relatable and heartfelt journey that reminds us all of an awkward time in our lives that could just as easily be forgotten as it is hard to forget. One of the years best by a long shot. Gucci 👌

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★

    A film that avoids genre cliches with seamless craft; Hereditary is a deeply menacing and grimly horrifying experience, which explores grief by viciously descending into the depths of hell on an emotional rollercoaster. Ari Aster has artfully transformed the definition of horror for our highly-desensitized generation.

  • The Tale

    The Tale

    ★★★★½

    The Tale is a beautiful and equally disturbing account of a woman who’s past comes back to haunt her; it’s a bold story of self-examination and confronting the reality of being abused. Laura Dern is a force to be reckoned with, giving one of the most emotionally accurate performances seen in film for a very long time.
