1. Fences

This Oscar-nominated film about a black working class family in the 50s is uneven in its delivery, but features powerful performances by Viola Davis and Denzel Washington – Rhodé Marshall

2. Moonlight

This film of two black, gay lovers is a story of staggering beauty – a collection of character studies that gets under the skin of manhood – Charl Blignaut

3. Live by Night

A disappointing effort by director and lead Ben Affleck. This dreary crime story drags on without much payoff – Gayle Edmunds


4. International Sci-Fi Film Festival

The Bioscope, Maboneng Precinct
