Phantom Thread Review

Phantom Thread is a masterful yet subdued piece of cinema that works as an effective study of the toxic male creative, a dark comedy and a twisted, yet still very moving gothic love story.

Review: Logan Lucky

Aptly described by Soderbergh as an “anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie”, Logan Lucky is a return to the style of filmmaking that made his Ocean’s trilogy a box office hit. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: The Beguiled

For what I initially felt was a regimented plot, too tailored for mood-setting and panoptic brushstrokes, I now recognise as a necessary and beautifully rendered aesthetic mission. Ryan Suckling reviews.

Review: Baby Driver

Overall, Baby Driver is a triumph of style over substance. It turns the chase film into high-art without challenging the viewers’ expectations of the genre. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: The Mummy

Clearly the film was made with a teen audience in mind and the result is your typical M-rated action blockbuster, full of goofy humour and noisy set pieces but nothing distinct to set it apart. Dominic Kwaczynski reviews.

Review: Bad Girl

It is these universally relevant themes of family belonging, trust, and betrayal, that see Bad Girl transcend the boundary of an Australian independent film, to one capable of an international reception. Cindy Shi reviews.
