3/5 No Score Yet The Queen and the Coup (2020) Memories of a potent era for British foreign affairs... The ramifications of the operation are still being felt today, from Gaza to Yemen, a trail of bloodshed and misery lasting nearly 70 years. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 71% Ali & Cavett: The Tale of the Tapes (2018) While The Tale of the Tapes doesn't teach us much, it underlines Ali's gift for entertaining. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet VE Day: A Nation at Peace (2020) Sadly, as anyone who's had to sit through someone else's wedding video knows, parties are more fun to be at than to watch afterwards. - Independent (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Lost Lives (2019) The aggregate effect is undoubtedly powerful, but Lost Lives has its limitations as a piece of filmmaking. - Independent (UK) EDIT

1/5 48% Greed (2020) Greed wants to have its cheap giggles and its Serious Message, and fails at both. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 52% A Christmas Carol (2019) It ought to be too hammy to hang together, and it would probably have worked as a one-off film rather than the full three-hour mini-series, but I found myself watching, mainly due to the central performances. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Elton John: Uncensored (2019) There is a kind of frictionless pleasure in hearing snippets of old songs, and Elton rattling through toupee-raising tales, costume dramas and binges with Beatles. - Independent (UK) EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet The Day We Walked On The Moon (2019) Generic anniversary fodder of the purest kind. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 93% High Flying Bird (2019) Along with Space Jam and Hoop Dreams, it joins the roster of passable net-flicks. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 100% Care (2018) The overall message, that we are nothing without communication, might be vital, but that doesn't make it easy to watch. - Independent (UK) EDIT

3/5 91% King Lear (2018) No doubt conscious of the competition, director Richard Eyre assembled so many galacticos for his bells-and-whistles modern-day-set TV version that at first it was hard to concentrate on anything else. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 21% Mute (2018) Somewhere in here a reasonable film exists, but Mute is rather less than the sum of its parts. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
