By Aoife Barry RottenTomatoes: 6.9/10IMDB: 5.8/10Which one would you go see first? Poll Results: RottenTomatoes: 6.3/10IMDB: 7.4/10The Birth of a Nation Source: FoxSearchlight/YouTubeWhat we knowTaking its name from a racist early silent film, this movie looks at the lives of slaves in early America.What the critics say“If “12 Years a Slave” felt like a breakthrough on that score, then Parker’s more conventionally told but still searingly impressive debut feature pushes the conversation further still: A biographical drama steeped equally in grace and horror, it builds to a brutal finale that will stir deep emotion and inevitable unease.” – Variety“We’ll never know how successful it could have been. But put aside the rancour and controversy, and you’ll find an occasionally uneven but always gripping work from a first-time filmmaker with genuine fire in his belly. Even more than 12 Years A Slave, a more clear-eyed and elegant but less visceral experience, The Birth Of A Nationbroils and brims with quiet rage” – Empire  Share Tweet Email Birth Of A Nation (486) I Am Not A Serial Killer (446) Snowden (1084) THE WEEKEND IS coming up, and that means new movies for you to see.But which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid?We take a lookI Am Not A Serial Killer Source: IFC Films/YouTubeWhat we knowIrish-produced and directed film that was made in a very cold Midwestern town. Based on a book for young adults of the same name, it’s about a young teen who tries to track down a serial killer in his locality. Stars Christopher Llloyd and Max Records (Where The Wild Things Are).What the critics say“What sets I Am Not A Serial Killer apart from other takes on this “killers hunting killers” concept (Dexter, anyone?) is its naturalistic, character-based approach. Over the course of an hour and 44 minutes, we come to understand and sympathize with John, who, deep down, isn’t a bad kid” – The AV Club“The tale of a likable teenager, raised by a mortician family, whose own nascent sociopathic tendencies make him a perfect amateur sleuth when a serial killer strikes his folksy Midwestern town, director Billy O’Brien’s film adaptation strikes a tone that’s far more unique and endearing than that premise might imply, helped in no small part by a sharp-witted performance from former child star Max Records.” – Variety What’s it rated?  I Am Not A Serial KillerSnowdenBirth Of A NationVote Source: Open Road Films/YouTubeWhat we knowJoseph Gordon Levitt plays the titular Edward Snowden, who famously leaked information from the US’s National Security Agency. Directed by Oliver Stone.What the critics say“In the context of this director’s career, “Snowden” is both a return to form and something of a departure. Mr. Stone circles back to the grand questions of power, war and secrecy that have propelled his most ambitious work, and finds a hero who fits a familiar Oliver Stone mold.” – New York Times““Snowden” is the biopic equivalent of a data dump—more fragments of information, scary factoids and fleeting themes than we or the filmmaker can keep track of, but no surprises or notable insights.” – Wall Street Journal Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img
