D: Alejandro Landes.
S: Julianne Nicholson, Moisés Arias, Sofia Buenaventura, Julián Giraldo, Karen Quintero.
Teenage rebels fighting for an unknown organisation for an unknown cause. The squad quickly fractures. A blank canvas to project allegory, or just an empty vessel? Well made but lacks originality.
LITTLE MONSTERS ★★☆☆☆
D: Abe Forsythe.
S: Lupita Nyong'o, Josh Gad, Alexander England, Kat Stewart.
An uninspired zombie-comedy. There's too much *ahem* dead time. A few good lines, but little else to enliven. Am not sure why Lupita Nyong'o and Josh Gad are wasting their talents in this?
BOMBAY ROSE ★★★½☆
D: Gitanjali Rao.
S: Anurag Kashyap, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Makrand Deshpande.
Soulful animation set in the Indian metropolis of the title. Though, the constant traffic in the foreground is distracting. (Surely there is a more artful way of creating bustle?) Seams of social conscience are woven into a painful love story, automatically elevating this beyond the usual.
