    Spring Breakers

    ★★★★

    Harmony Korine's neon nightmare is a lot of things, but a dull piece of filmmaking is not one of them. Provocatively poetic in its own morally disjointed way, Spring Breakers—with its colourful images and characters—makes for a captivating watch.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    ★★★½

    An avalanche of decadence, obscenity, and depravity that gives introspection to the ultimate American dream. DiCaprio is on fire in a role that further confirms the actor's impressive range and introduces him as a veritable comedic force.

    The Soloist

    ★½

    Suffering from pacing issues, questionable editing, and pointless aerial shots, The Soloist starts on a high note with its intriguing premise but quickly falls flat. Despite its impressive cast, the film never becomes the tearjerker it so desperately wants to be.

    A Short Film About Killing

    ★★★★½

    Raw and powerful, A Short Film About Killing is a complex denunciation of the violent act in question, presented masterfully and efficiently by Krzysztof Kieslowski.
