    Free Fire

    ★★★★

    An absolute riot. Director Ben Wheatley and writing partner Amy Jump take a breather from their cerebral-based style to deliver something able to be taken at face value. Free Fire blares with fun and chaos - restricting itself to a single location and producing blistering shoot-outs intertwined with relentless humour.

Aronofsky, a filmmaker with the incessant purpose to innovate and redefine, puts forth one of his most divergent motion pictures but simultaneously one of his most mainstream with this re-imagining of Noah's ark. A true blockbuster on the surface, the sweeping temperament of Noah is uncommonly matched with intelligence and a bonafide, gravitating narrative…
