GOD’S ACRE (Dir. JP Davidson) (Raindance-Nominated [Best British Feature] & BIFA-Longlisted)

‘Matthew Jure is terrific as Malcolm Taylor: we despise him for being the kind of landlord that put families on the street with extortionate rents at the height of the housing boom; we feel for him as the effects of his alcohol dependency tighten their grip on his reality; we worry for him as the voices in his head whisper in the background; we hope for him as he finally overcomes his agoraphobia to visit his neighbour and we think his life is finally finding a purpose; and at the climax of the film I was crying with and for him. Jure is not an actor whose career I was following before God’s Acre but I will definitely be following now.’ (Steve Taylor-Bryant)

‘Matthew Jure is superb as the desperate, frazzled, frantic Malcolm Taylor.’ (i-Flicks)

‘Matthew Jure’s gaunt, disheveled Malcolm Taylor is reminiscent of Christian Bale in The Machinist.’ (Crispy Sharp)

‘Matthew Jure gives such an incredibly powerful performance as Malcolm Taylor that it is hard to leave the cinema without some lingering sense of claustrophobia.’ (Raindance Film Festival)

DIARY OF A MADMAN (Dir. Jason Moore)

‘Hilarious…Matthew Jure is captivating as the doomed Poprishchin…more charming than the Belvoir Street production with Geoffrey Rush…humour beautifully balanced with horror.’ (4/5) (The Fringe Review)

MACBETH (Dir. Nicola Baylis)

‘Matthew Jure plays a superb Macbeth.’ (5/5) (Remote Goat)

‘Matthew Jure as Macbeth has the audience rooting for him from the very start. He is not only credible but also succeeds in bringing real vulnerability to the character – instead of the villain, we see Macbeth as a victim of fate struggling to do the right thing but failing against his human weaknesses.’ (Extra Extra)

‘As a man teased, tormented and overwhelmed by temptation, Matthew Jure is a powerful onstage force.’ (Stage Mage)

THE KILLERS (Dir. Carlo Ortu)

The Killers is a gem of a black comedy. It is a tale of two misfit hitmen stalking their prey and then attempting to carry out the contract, with excellent performances from the two leads who play the would-be killers. Matthew Jure is particularly impressive as the amusingly hapless Mike, who seems most ill-suited to murder.’ (8/10) (IMDb)

STARLIGHT & SUPERFISH (Dir. Steve Kopera) (Michigan BWFF Winner [Best Actor])

‘Matthew Jure is fantastic as rockstar Rex Redding…I’m not surprised he won a Best Actor award for his performance…Rex possesses a deep complexity that develops wonderfully throughout the film. I absolutely loved Starlight & Superfish.’ (10/10) (IMDb)

Starlight & Superfish has an excellent cast but the stand-out is Matthew Jure…his performance is extremely good…as washed-up rocker Rex Redding he is the highlight of the film.’ (Amazon)

BBC SRA Awards

‘The multi-talented Matthew Jure made a huge impression on the judges.’ (Emma B)
