4/5 58% Set Fire To The Stars (2015) Summoning performances that saturate the screen, and dialogue that does just as much, Set Fire to the Stars proves to be as ambiguously affecting as its tortured source. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 33% We'll Never Have Paris (2015) Simon Helberg's cringe-inducing (non)romantic comedy crudely force-feeds its characters on time-honoured flaws, only to watch on hopefully as the audience eventually gives in to its absurdity. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 76% The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2015) While colourfully idyllic in almost every respect, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet's vision finds itself sadly lacking in overall depth and symbolic relevance. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 35% Hits (2015) Considerably well-written throughout, Hits' only fault lies in its lamentable withholding of some of the more substantial elements of its tongue-in-cheek narrative statement. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 59% Finding Fela! (2014) Despite Fela's lively subject matter, Gibney ultimately fails to offer any lasting form of personal perspective on the issues that surround it - gimmicks notwithstanding. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 73% Memphis (2014) Tim Sutton's experimental arrangement of the "one-hit-wonder" thematically explores the guilt, grief and sadness of wasted talent; the melancholic descent to normalcy. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 80% Electricity (2014) Byn Higgins' gritty exploration of a woman consistently betrayed by her own body brings brutal honesty to the subject, eschewing simplicity and singular judgement, (be it good or bad) in favour of a more complex, indeterminate system of empathy. - One Room With A View EDIT
