More Great Films

HAMLET

HAMLET


"Peake?s delicate ferocity, her particular mixture of concentration and lightness, ensure that you want to follow her whenever she appears."
- Susannah Clapp, The Guardian

"It?s a terrifically fast, fluent, attacking production and Peake?s Hamlet is like a page-boy gone bad, relying on mates for a supply of drugs, sporting a aggressive short haircut that comes from prep school or the army: blond, but unlike the Byronic crop of Olivier?s Hamlet. Her casting isn?t a gimmick. Peake looks like a stowaway, or a French resistance fighter in disguise: her femaleness gives a new edge of differentness and alienation and anger...."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"A triumph of re-invention... Intimate and intense.... Stunningly good.
The Times of London
IN SYRIA

IN SYRIA

Directed by Philippe Jordan

"Gripping from start to finish.... A chilling, fast-moving study of a Syrian household under siege."
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

"A concisely-told story that couldn't be more timely... a superbly coordinated cast, largely composed of Syrian refugees - children and young adults included - gel magnificently. Hiam Abbass offers one of her most powerful performances to date...."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily

"**** For a film that exists inside such a small setting, 'In Syria" is a big film.... It's remarkably powerful and a strong piece of work from director/writer Philippe Van Leeuw."
- Charliedavid Page, Switch (Australia)
IN BETWEEN

IN BETWEEN

Directed by Maysaloun Hamoud
  • Israel / 
  • 2016 / 
  • Hebrew & Arabic with English subtitles / 
  • 103 min

"A discovery at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, IN BETWEEN hails from Israel, and is one of the best recent films to come out of that country, or anywhere for that matter."
- Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com

"[A] breezy, light-hearted dramedy of girl power..."
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

"[An] energetic feature debut...compelling...While the entire cast is aces, the three leads, and the chemistry among them, are especially fine..."
- Alissa Simon, Variety
JASPER JONES

JASPER JONES

Directed by Rachel Perkins

"The loss of childhood innocence and the suffocating despair of adulthood come together in "Jasper Jones," a beautifully composed portrait of life in late-󈨀s small-town Australia. Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey?s novel will appeal strongly to teenage and adult audiences. Boasting excellent performances by young actors Aaron McGrath, Levi Miller (Pan) and Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys), and with Toni Collette in top form as the protagonist?s frustrated mother, this is the best film yet by director Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Dae). "
- Richard Kuipers, Variety

"It?s compelling as a whodunnit, touching as a coming-of-age story, insightful as a picture of race relations and crafty as a drama about secrets, concealing a few of its own for a final, satisfying reveal."
- Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

"...one of the best and most heartfelt Australian films of the last decade."
- Richard Gray, The Reel Bits

MY ART

MY ART

Directed by Laurie Simmons

"Ranges from romance to comedy and fantasy, with threads of feminism woven in... it?s Simmons? depiction of Shine?s art-making that is truly magnetic to watch. "
- Pei-ru Keh, Wallpaper

"Charming? Simmons plays Ellie straight with a naturalistic unemotional delivery which is drolly appealing and a wonderful contrast to her scenery chewing on screen...genuinely funny,"
- Belle McIntrye, Galo Magazine
PARADISE

PARADISE

  • Russian Federation / 
  • 2016 / 
  • Russian, German & French with English subtitles / 
  • 132 min

"Russian veteran Andrei Konchalovsky is on robust form in this richly monochrome, perspective-rotating Holocaust drama."
- Guy Lodge, Variety

"... persuasively acted, elegantly shot in black and white and altogether a handsome prestige period production..."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen International

"...the great Russian DoP Alexander Simonov...works chiaroscuro wonders with what the end credits identify as a combination of 35mm and 16mm stock, his 4:3 black-and-white images and complex lighting set-ups often harking back to golden-age monochrome cinematography. "
- Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
THE TEACHER

THE TEACHER

Directed by Jan Hrebejk

"[An] intelligent and universally resonant crowd-pleaser..."
- Alissa Simon, Variety

"**** Hrebejk and Jarchovsy deftly employ humour as a way of mocking and undercutting their anti-heroine while preventing their overall point about power and corruption from becoming preachy. "
- Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film

"Effectively transposing ൔ Angry Men" into the most intense PTA meeting of all time, Jan Hrebejk's "The Teacher" is a sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play..."
- David Ehrlich, Indiewire
ATHEIST AMERICA

ATHEIST AMERICA

Directed by Ralf Buecheler
BAD LUCKY GOAT

BAD LUCKY GOAT

Directed by Samir Oliveros
  • Colombia / 
  • 2017 / 
  • Creole with English subtitles / 
  • 76 min

"An unexpected surprise, Bad Lucky Goat is lively and spry, funny and thoughtful. "
- Peter Martin, Screen Anarchy

"There?s a whiff of The Gods Must Be Crazy whimsy wafting through Bad Lucky Goat, an affably quirky debut feature by Bogota, Colombia-based Samir Oliveros."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter

"The playful narrative careens from a series of exotic locales, from rastafari drum makers to a climactic cock fight, with a blend of naturalistic dialogue and magic realism that?s both charming and unpredictable. The vivid backdrop creates an infectious atmosphere to this lighthearted romp, which stands toe-to-toe with Ozu in its depiction of angsty kids at odds with their surroundings. Yet Oliveros manages to use the rich environment to imbue the proceedings with an otherworldly quality that tips into fantasy and creates the sense that anything could happen. It?s a genuine crowdpleaser.... "
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
