94% Uncut Gems (2019) Uncut Gems is utterly relentless from start to finish; a true force of nature that is excruciating to sit through yet impossible to look away from. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

88% Bad Education (2019) Bad Education is an extremely witty and well-constructed, razor-sharp black comedy, and a strong reminder of just how good an actor Jackman can be in the right role. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% Moffie (2019) Moffie is utterly remorseless and unbearably difficult to watch at times, while still being a visceral, tender and poignant look at human connection. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

60% Earthquake Bird (2019) Earthquake Bird feels almost like a factory-made thriller, that feels every bit as uninspired and dull as Westmoreland's last picture, Colette. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

79% A Hidden Life (2019) A Hidden Life is not the Palme d'Or-nominated masterpiece many people were hoping for from Malick, but rather a repeat of his usual mistakes... - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

82% Official Secrets (2019) This is a strong, engaging thriller with significant themes, anchored by strong performances and told with great skill. It'll frustrate people and make them think, undoubtedly Hood's intent, and testament to the film's success. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

97% Marriage Story (2019) There is simply too much to appreciate in Marriage Story to list. It's faultless, seemingly effortless storytelling and one of the year's finest films. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

93% The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019) The Last Black Man In San Francisco is one of the most picturesque films you'll see this year; a stunningly beautiful use of the art form; at once poignant, political, tragic, funny and always human. It's a cinematic vision that feels completely unique. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

97% A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019) It's far from a perfect work and it's certainly no classic, but it's a particularly charming and sweet film with strong performances and significant messages. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

No Score Yet Nocturnal (2019) Nocturnal is a flawed but engaging kitchen-sink drama; one with interesting themes at play and questions being asked. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

60% Lingua Franca (2019) Lingua Franca has interesting themes to an extent, which are occasionally well-explored, but the film's lack of any real character development and unintentional focus on its central love story mean it just completely loses sight of itself. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

97% Knives Out (2019) Knives Out is that great story, told by someone with great imagination and at the top of his game. This might be the most fun film you'll see this year. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

91% Beats (2019) Dramatic, funny and moving, Beats is a film based in one specific moment, telling a story that will touch many more. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

84% The Brink (2019) The Brink gives us an intimate look at a man who is essentially nothing more than a brilliant salesman, pitching his ideas to those who will listen, shunning those who will not, and being offered a frankly terrifying amount of money to do so. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% Minding the Gap (2018) Minding The Gap is the kind of relatable documentary that is so incredibly rare; a real story presented in the only way its director knew how. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

61% Vox Lux (2018) Brady Corbet's new film about the pitfalls of stardom is an interesting but flawed picture; one with worthwhile themes and terrific performances, but not with a great deal to say. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

62% XY Chelsea (2019) XY Chelsea feels like a brief summary of Chelsea Manning's life so far, that's open to further research and interpretation, with plenty to still be told. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

100% Decade of Fire (2019) This film is interesting throughout and Vazquez adds far more to the film than she takes away. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
