    First Reformed

    ★★★½

    The world is coming to an end and God is just another of Capitalism's puppets. But, maybe love can give us a glimmer of hope. Ethan Hawke plays a preacher in a small tourist church, struggling to deal with the break-up of his marriage, illness and the loss of his own faith. When a local woman introduces him to her husband (a disillusioned environmental activist) their lives are forever changed. Amazing performances all round in another solid effort from Paul Schrader. It is slow-burning and not a whole lot happens, but it's never boring.

    The Big Snatch

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    At the onset of the 70s the sexploitation roughie was already out-of-fashion. Audiences demanded more flesh and more graphic violence. Sadly, it all comes at at the expense of charm and if there's one thing this film lacks, it's charm.

    The Big Snatch follows a man who kidnaps (or snatches, if you like) five women and takes them to a remote location, with the intention of keeping them as his slaves. They are to call him Master, follow his every…
