Baahubali 2: The Conclusion Poster

Baahubali 2: The Conclusion

Review by Simon Abrams

The action choreography is exciting, the operatic plot is compelling, and there's a genuine sense of optimism that undercuts the gouts of blood and thunderous sound effects.

The Lovers Poster

The Lovers

Review by Glenn Kenny

The wisdom of this meticulously crafted film is in its genuine irony, which amplifies steadily throughout until culminating in a moment of real heartbreak that, ironically enough, only sets the stage for a cycle of deceit to begin again.

Risk

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Risk is another fascinating piece of cinema-as-history that reminds us that Laura Poitras remains one of our most original, courageous and valuable filmmakers.

Julian Schnabel: A Private Portrait Poster

Julian Schnabel: A Private Portrait

Review by Glenn Kenny

Chuck Poster

Chuck

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Another Evil Poster

Another Evil

Last Men in Aleppo

Review by Vikram Murthi
