3/5 No Score Yet Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and Legendary Tapes (2020) It's not clear we get much more understanding of Derbyshire, other than reinforcing the message that she opens with herself: that she's a free spirit... But it's in recreating the moments of convention that Catz revives a spirit we want more of. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Sound for the Future (2020) It's relentless and jarring, but slowly, out of the ramshackle chaos -- tapdancing one minute, snogging Malcolm McClaren's grave bust the next -- a deeply personal narrative starts to coalesce. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 96% The Human Voice (La Voz Humana) (2020) If it begins with elaborately sad, art school indulgence, The Human Voice certainly ends on something that feels more fresh, tangible and hopeful. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 100% Never Gonna Snow Again (2020) It's an elegant plea to pay attention; to sit in at least awareness of our own contradictions and hypocrisies, and to plough our energies into more growth than destruction. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Say Your Prayers (2020) The target is too big, and it's carrying too much -- but it still succeeds in bringing the laughs. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 8% Artemis Fowl (2020) But it's also a mistake to launch into an adaptation without understanding what it is that draws people to the text. And this clunky, incoherent reimagining misses almost every mark. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 100% Our Ladies (2019) Our Ladies is at its strongest when it leaves storytelling in the hands of its young, talented cast. It is unflinching and non-judgemental about the girls' fully embraced sexuality, unsentimental about poverty and unimpressed by wealth. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 86% The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea (2019) The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea is painful viewing, but the note of hope that it holds makes it nigh unmissable. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 63% Hope Gap (2020) It's a muddled film; a painful little knot with moments of keen observation linked awkwardly together by a fumbled, too on-the-nose script, and oddly flat tone. - One Room With A View EDIT

92% The Unknown Saint (Le miracle du saint inconnu) (2019) The Unknown Saint is a film that really enjoys itself; it strips down to basics but finds room for plenty of wry observational humour, moments of warmth and a dash of contemplation. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 63% Maggie (2018) The shift from offbeat to bonkers can be glorious. For Maggie, an erratic structure mirrors the film's examination of truth, perception and trust -- but unfortunately in a way that comes across as more haphazard than inspired. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 95% Lucky Grandma (2020) Ultimately, Lucky Grandma is as paradoxical and irrepressible as its main character. It dons the garb of a dark comedy drama over a gangster's swagger, layering on the complexity deliberately -- with mixed, but highly engaging, results. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 92% The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) As public discourse skews ever more vicious, it's refreshing to watch the razor-sharp mind behind The Thick of It and The Death of Stalin tackle still depressingly timely issues of poverty and inequality with a distinctly compassionate tone. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 88% Ready or Not (2019) Ready or Not takes great pleasure in setting up and paying off obvious gags and gore, then switching things up with a sharp take that keeps things creepy and intelligent throughout. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 80% Late Night (2019) Late Night is refreshing, charming and insightful, but falls just short of top-notch status by never being sure if it's going full Hollywood. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 96% Booksmart (2019) By replacing wish fulfilment with something much more powerful, Booksmart cleverly balances full-body cringes with full-hearted affection. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Is it a new childhood classic? No, but it's a fun romp that's sure to be well received. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 93% Us (2019) Demanding repeat viewing, it's another superior showcase for Peele's bloody dissection of humanity with razor-edged wit. - One Room With A View EDIT
