Review: THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
A thrilling adaptation of the eerie Oscar Wilde tale.
Review: CLÉO FROM 5 TO 7
It has survived as an important feminist film, but it’s also a fine example of existentialism in cinema.
Feels down-to-earth in its portrait of the Liverpool community and conveys the many issues it has with the Catholic church in compelling ways.
Review: NIGHTS OF CABIRIA
Realistic and poetic, with a vivid music score by Nino Rota, illustrating the joy and tragedy of Cabiria’s existence.
Quick Take: THE OUTSIDER
Lots of thrills, even endearing at times; Ben Mendelsohn hits the right note.
Review: LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON
The director handles the film’s difficult issues with intelligence and emotion without letting sentimentality dominate.
Quick Take: CHARTER
A relatable drama, even if far from every turn of the story feels convincing.
Quick Take: BLOODSHOT
This adaptation of the comic book puts Vin Diesel’s worst traits on display – macho but uncharismatic all the way through.
