His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
Rose Callaghan’s comedic listicle is a welcome addition to the Rhino Room’s cracking line up.
A harmless, fumbling fool with an unpredictably cutting wit.
The energy, pace, hilarity, wit and talent of The Handlebards’ Twelfth Night makes the show a standout that anyone can enjoy.

Heart-warming, electric, and funny to boot, Build A Rocket is the kind of show that cartwheels around your mind for days to come.
