  • Orang Kaya Baru

    Orang Kaya Baru


    Ody C. Harahap’s ‘Orang Kaya Baru’ is witty, clever, and offers so much fun - just like what you’d expect from a Joko Anwar comedy. Sags a bit in the middle but the movie is still a huge, huge crowdpleaser.

  • Glass



    'Glass' brings together the characters from 'Unbreakable' and 'Split' but it struggles to do anything interesting with them. 19 years in the making and M. Night Shyamalan comes up with this bloated and depressing misfire.

  • Bird Box

    Bird Box


    Nothing groundbreaking but Susanne Bier’s ‘Bird Box’ is tense and entertaining elevated by superb performances from its cast - Sandra Bullock delivers one of her best performances here. The story could be better though. The movie offers lots of interesting ideas but they’re mostly underdeveloped and ultimately got lost in the mix.

  • Support the Girls

    Support the Girls


    ‘Support the Girls’ tackles difficult responsibilities of working-class adulthood in a manner that is realistically grounded but still thoughtfully sincere, optimistic, and joyful. Outstanding.
