    Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer – 9/10

    This one packs one hell of a punch. Fearless and ferocious filmmaking. It shows just what you can achieve on a $100,000 budget if you utilise the camera to its full potential. The simplest of camera movements result in eery shots that make you feel dirty and anxious.

    Its almost impossible for a superhero film to deviate too much from the often complained about, predictable template. On paper, infinity war is the same old story of a…
