What we know

The spiritual follow-up to the classic Dazed and Confused, Richard Linklater is back with this look at college life in the 1980s.

What the critics say

  • “If the lads were insufferable misogynistic pricks, Everybody Wants Some!! would make for horrible viewing. Thankfully they’re all intensely lovable.” - The Guardian
  • “His screenplay slyly sets up each one as a recognisable high-school-movie varietal (the lady’s man, the goofball, the psycho, and so on), then sits back and allows the stereotypes to unravel at leisure.” - The Telegraph

What we know

A group of Turkish sisters are caught between living a full life and being constrained by society and their family.

What the critics say

  • “People outside the family also emerge as oases of modern attitudes, along with an escape plan. But the girls’ heroism lies in being themselves and making noise, against their immediate society’s wishes.” - New York Times 
  • “Mustang tells a straightforward story of female empowerment, but it’s the way it tells that story that makes it deserving of all the accolades it’s received, including an Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film.” - The Atlantic

What we know

Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin and Alia Shawkat star in this horror about a punk band who play at a neo-Nazi venue… and wind up witnessing the aftermath of a murder.

What the critics say

  • “As with much contemporary horror by a certain cresting generation of directors, there’s a back-to-basics ’80s sensibility to “Green Room” that goes harder on practical gore and slow-building scares than on severe digital spectacle.” - Variety
  • “Like many great siege movies, this alternates edgy conversations with bursts of action as both sides work out plans to break in or get away and then have to think fast when things go south. There are shock-gore moments a-plenty, and the order in which characters are culled isn’t entirely guessable.” - Empire
