Time Out Melbourne

Five five-star movies you must see

Time Out's reviewers give the big thumbs up to five current and imminent releases

All Is Lost

Robert Redford is a true man of steel in this nearly wordless adventure movie with echoes of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour

It's a minutely detailed, searingly erotic three-hour study of first lesbian love.

The Great Beauty

The intellectual and sensual life of Rome hasn't been this seductive since La Dolce Vita.

Inside Llewyn Davis

The Coen Brothers offer a hilarious and detailed recreation of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960s.

12 Years a Slave

This devastating story is told with a touch of genius.
