JASON BOURNE

(US, 2016) Dir: Paul Greengrass. Stars Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel. "Gripping from the outset, the most powerful thing about this tense action thriller is that it is intensely personal with a great sense of high stakes and risks," says Louise. "Fast paced, engaging, inventive, intelligent and thrilling, Jason Bourne reminds us what a talented director Paul Greengrass is - and what a great script writer, too," says Andrew. REVIEWS

Movie reviews: THE SECOND MOTHER
Movie reviews:
THE SECOND MOTHER

(Brazil, 2016) Dir: Anna Muylaert. Stars Regina Case, Michel Joelsas, Camila Mardila. "This is a film in which the minutia matters as we become engrossed in the divergent worlds of the domestic and her employers," says Louise. "What I find noteworthy about this film is that you don’t fully realise its power until the ending. It subtly unfolds..", says Andrew. REVIEWS

Movie reviews: EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT
Movie reviews:
EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT

(Colombia/Venezuela/Argentine, 2015) Dir: Ciro Guerra. Stars Nilbio Torres, Jan Bijvoet, Antonio Bolivar. "Visually stunning, the raw beauty of the landscape is breathtaking, yet the narrative involving two scientists and their search 40 years apart fails to embrace as it should," says Louise. "The many awards and accolades (including an Oscar nomination as Best Foreign Language Film) together with positive reviews quoted on the marketing materials for this film lifted my expectations - perhaps too high," says Andrew. REVIEWS

Movie reviews: WEINER
Movie reviews:
WEINER

(US, 2016) Dir: Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg. Documentary with Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin, Amit Bagga, Adam S. Barta. "This is one hulluva documentary, and not because of Anthony Weiner’s sexting about his weiner," says Andrew. "It's a bit like watching a car crash: you simply can't look away," says Louise. REVIEW

A BIGGER SPLASH
Stars Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts. "Carnal pleasures and temptations are integral to this intriguing psychological drama in which intricately bound relationships reveal darker undertones beneath the frivolity," says Louise.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN
Stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill. "It's a risky game to pit two beloved superheros against each other, a gamble that doesn't pay off partly because we feel cheated by the resolution," says Andrew.

DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT
Stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jeff Daniels, Miles Teller. "The trouble with this third film in the franchise is that its messages are muddled: the premise changes, there is too much going on and the filmmakers have forgotten that we need to care about the characters," says Louise.
