By explaining everything and leaving nothing to the imagination, Now You See Me falls into dreadful and ridiculous predictability.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

This overly-long melodramatic rom-com is the best fluff I’ve watched in a very long time, as we follow a man looking to reconnect with his ex-best-friend.

Post Tenebras Lux

Post Tenebras Lux is a semi-autobiographical film by Carlos Reygadas that was made purposely to baffle us, being presented as a sort of a bizarre dream.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

Field in England, A (2013)
