Gripping, gruelling and visually poetic, Sweet Country is an expertly crafted movie from the prodigiously gifted director/cinematographer Warwick Thornton – his first since his stunning 2009 debut Samson and Delilah.
Darkest Hour is a superb period piece backgrounding the political warring in Britain preceding the Dunkirk evacuation. Gary Oldman stuns with one of the great performances in cinema in a portrayal of Churchill that will likely never be bettered.
The Party is a theatrical style piece that exposes the hypocrisies, cheating and brutality that lie beneath the facades of a small group of bourgeois liberal friends. We’ve seen it all before, and done better.
