  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★½

    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.

  • Gemini

    Gemini

    ★★★★

    Although the final revelation may fall flat, Gemini is an effectively moody neo-noir, that combines a provocative mystery with delicious visual storytelling. However, the film's most prominent strength comes from Lola Kirke's offbeat performance, which is both sharply naturalistic and unpredictable.

  • 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.

  • Thoroughbreds

    Thoroughbreds

    ★★★½

    A darkly funny, malicious little gem, that balances social satire with the teen-thriller sub-genre with precision; Thoroughbreds may not be entirely original, but it no doubt takes a good stab at the subject matter with an icy-cool style.
