'The Big Ask' Review: How Far (In) Would You Let a Friend In Need Go?
The film's tight run-time doesn't waste a frame and still finds time for darkly comical moments throughout, and that balance between the two keeps things from becoming too dry or farcical. The “what if” that fuels the story opens doors towards laughs ...

The Babadook: Sundance Review
Driven by a ripper of a performance from Essie Davis, Australian writer-director Jennifer Kent's impressive first film has the handcrafted feel of a pre-digital shocker. Its style and originality should help snare niche theatrical play in addition to ...

Computer Chess (15) - film review
The film, although clearly shot on a very small budget, captures brilliantly the look of the period. This was an era when computers were still hulking machines. Bujalski satirises the nerdy, ultra-competitive programmers but he also celebrates their ...
