Relic

Relic: Film Review

My oh my, this year’s Halloween-timed horror offerings are just next level – first, we had Saint Maud, and now I can add Relic, another first feature by a female director, to the list.

Shirley

Shirley: Film Review

I had been looking forward to seeing Shirley for months, basically since its U.S. release back in June, because I was intrigued to see Elisabeth Moss play reclusive author Shirley Jackson, but I didn’t love the story this movie told.

Wolfwalkers

Wolfwalkers: Film Review

Given the current climate, there haven’t been many animations released this year so far, or any particularly good ones, so Wolfwalkers couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Not only does it give us a much-needed animation fix, it also tells a terrific story.

The Witches

The Witches: Film Review

Nicolas Roeg terrified a generation of children with his 1990 adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic The Witches, starring Anjelica Huston as the Grand High Witch, and now Robert Zemeckis has attempted to put a fresh spin on it with this new remake.

Summer of 85

Summer of 85: Film Review

Francois Ozon’s latest feature, Summer of 85, tells the story of a short-lived gay romance and is a sun-soaked hit of nostalgia.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Film Review

Sacha Baron Cohen claimed years ago that he had retired his Kazakh reporter character Borat, but if there was ever a good time to bring him back, it’s in this crazy 2020 we’re having.

Possessor

Possessor: LFF Film Review

I had heard so much about Brandon Cronenberg’s second feature Possessor that I figured it was worthwhile paying for a public LFF ticket to see it – and while I can appreciate many things about it, it wasn’t my cup of tea.

Ammonite

Ammonite: LFF Film Review

Ammonite received rave reviews following its premiere in Toronto so I had seriously high expectations for it – but I might admit I was underwhelmed by the whole thing.

Over the Moon

Over the Moon: Netflix Film Review

There had been a distinct lack of animations so far this year, but they now seem to be coming out at the same time, with Wolfwalkers, Soul, and Over the Moon coming out within weeks of each other. Will Over the Moon stand out from the crowd? Read on to find out.
