Sicario

What we know

An FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is enlisted to help government agent Josh Brolin in the war against drugs. Their team is led by Benicio Del Toro, who brings them into very dark places.

What the critics say

  • Sicario has some extraordinary action and suspense set-pieces, and there’s the sense that Villeneuve most enjoys the planning and execution of long stretches of dread: a nerve-rattling stand-off in a traffic jam on the Mexican border.”- Den of Geek 
  • “[Blunt] makes a decent action heroine, never less than pained and strained, but for her it’s like playing a single octave on the piano.” - New Yorker

Sufragette

What we know

Loads of great female actors star in this depiction of Britain’s suffragette movement. *Feminist fist-bump*

What the critics say

  • Suffragette is a tart reminder to those who are casual about democratic gender equality that votes for women were not something that naturally evolved due to the ruling class’s innate decency; they had to be fought for.” - The Guardian
  • “Mulligan is on seriously good form here, showing Maud’s gradual transformation from bystander to activist with riveting emotional precision.” – The Telegraph

Regression

What we know

A young woman (Emma Watson) accuses her father of abuse. A detective (Ethan Hawke) is sent to investigate, but the father’s memories connect the family to a horrifying situation.

What the critics say

  • “From its occult premise to the voguishly dingy 1990s period setting and plentiful shots of greenish oil refineries, the film desperately wishes it were True Detective – though its plot feels heavily inspired by the notorious “West Memphis Three” case of 1993″ - The Telegraph
  • “Amenabar resorts to familiar imagery – hooded devil worshippers, ritualistic sacrifice, inverted crosses – and heavy-handedly signposts his true intentions, dissipating any mystery or suspense that might be generated by various hallucinations and flashbacks.” - Bristol Post
