6/10 92% Another Round (Druk) (2020) There's a sleek, glossy feel to Druk (Another Round), and at its best, the film is absolutely buzzing with energy - but it's perhaps a case of style over substance - alexmoreland.co.uk EDIT

7/10 89% Supernova (2021) Supernova is graceful and delicate, quiet in its most emotional moments, and all the more heartbreaking as a result. - alexmoreland.co.uk EDIT

4/10 59% Chemical Hearts (2020) There's a space for a sensitive, thoughtful film about a teenager rebuilding their life after trauma, but Chemical Hearts isn't that film - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/10 51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) The Rise of Skywalker has very little trust in its audience, offering not exciting new ideas, but instead only the dim pleasure of recognition. - alexmoreland.co.uk EDIT

9/10 64% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) It's characteristically precise from Norton - as an actor, writer and director - but focusing on its precision obscures how sensitive Motherless Brooklyn can often be. - Flickering Myth EDIT

8/10 89% The Two Popes (2019) The Two Popes begins and ends with Francis, not just fascinated by him but enamoured with him. - Flickering Myth EDIT

7/10 86% The Nightingale (2019) The Nightingale is a film about violence; it is unrelenting in approach, uncompromising in perspective, and uncomfortable to watch. - Flickering Myth EDIT

5/10 80% Brexit (2019) Brexit: The Uncivil War is a film caught between two contrary instincts, unable to quite work out what it wants to be or what it wants to do. - alexmoreland.co.uk EDIT
