3/5 78% Ip Man 3 (2016) Unfortunately this narrative competes with perfunctory plotlines that make for an unfocused film. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 11% Dirty Grandpa (2016) Dirty Grandpa had potential to be a good gross-out comedy, but it's mostly just gross. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 100% Carmin Tropical (2015) Carmin Tropical is a tender look at the friendship between two trans women. Although a tad slight, the internal complexities of Mabel's character make it a thoroughly rewarding watch. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 82% Chevalier (2016) Athina Rachel Tsangari's Chevalier is a timely arrival as it zeroes in on the minutiae that constructs the modern male identity. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 84% Sweet Bean (An) (2016) Sweet Bean is brimming with humanity, featuring characters that aren't normally seen onscreen. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet The Net (2016) Kim Ki-duk succeeds in offering a more complex perspective on a political situation that is all too often joked about in the West. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 100% The Age of Shadows (2016) Despite requiring a trimming and boasting poor characterisation, Miljeong is still an enjoyable film thanks to its use of tension and brutal action sequences. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 64% American Anarchist (2017) If this had been a short documentary made by a filmmaker with some scruples, then there could have been a work worthy of its subject. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Spira Mirabilis (2016) The baffling Spira Mirabilis is too self-absorbed to be of much appeal to audiences. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 83% King of the Belgians (2016) The humanity of its characters and the originality of its premise make it a most refreshing watch that will go down a treat for anyone looking for something on the lighter side. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 100% The Distinguished Citizen (El ciudadano ilustre) (2016) It can be viewed as too cynical for its own good, yet The Distinguished Citizen is an all-round solid film filled with both laugh and food for thought. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 100% Safari (2016) Seidl allows the activity to condemn itself through unrehearsed footage and long, painfully awkward silences. Those who can stomach the scenes of slaughter, however, can find a unique perspective on hunting. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 67% Voyage of Time: Life's Journey (2016) It's pretty, and occasionally it taps into a feeling that approaches profundity. However, those moments are not enough... - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Tommaso (2016) It is normally quite exciting if you don't know where a film is going. In Tommaso however, that uncertainty is frustrating. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 63% My Art (2018) In every scene it's clear which feeling Simmons is trying to evoke, so it's all the more frustrating that she fails in every attempt. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Piuma (2016) Piuma is a hilarious and affecting coming-of-age story that conveys its light-hearted nature in every aspect of the production. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 87% Jackie (2016) It is a great film in its own right thanks to terrific direction, subtle performances and the best soundtrack of the year so far. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 85% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) Hacksaw Ridge will not be for everyone. However, the genuinely surprising gear-shift at Okinawa is a memorable feat of filmmaking. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 91% Frantz (2017) Frantz swings the audience constantly between hope and despair for its characters thanks to a combination of winning performances, clever plotting, and stunning visuals. It's a pleasure to watch from beginning to end. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 40% Brimstone (2017) Brimstone sucks. There's nothing good about it, from the acting to the writing. And what's bad is made worse by the long runtime. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 82% A Woman's Life (Une vie) (2017) A textured film that may just be too dour for its own good. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 75% The Revival (2018) Holds a lot of potential. However, the conclusion will infuriate a lot of gay audience members, and the lack of scale and cinematic flair makes it a trudge to watch. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet My Own Private Hell (Inferninho) (2018) A beautiful queer tale about odd balls. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 100% Hard Paint (Tinta Bruta) (2018) With an inevitably bittersweet ending that rings true, Hard Paint is a phenomenal film about being young and queer. - One Room With A View EDIT
