T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 99% Song Of The Sea (2014) Aided by stellar voice work from the inimitable Brendan Gleeson, among others, Moore's gorgeous sophomore feature is steeped in a transformative sense of sadness and longing. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) Midnight Special comes close to greatness is undeniable - its first hour is a deliriously inventive, utterly arresting cosmic thriller that keeps its cards very close to its chest. If only the final act didn't reveal its bluff. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 82% Indignation (2016) Even if the bookending sequences thematically overstretch, the film remains an alluring, moving tapestry of a nation unfolding. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet 24 Weeks (2016) Berrached's 24 Weeks is without question a bleak affair, excruciating even; it is an unflinching account of a impossible decision, a film that punishes its audience's judgement of a situation that is never black and white... - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 93% Things to Come (1936) Things to Come (L'avenir) is a masterclass in restraint that proves that a film does not need to be ostentatious in order to be powerful. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 60% War on Everyone (2017) Although outwardly disappointing, it's not the case that War on Everyone is a total write-off. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 75% Death in Sarajevo (2016) Tanović's highly literate, complex satire seeks to interrogate its audience, unafraid to look it in the eye as if down the barrel of a gun. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 58% Alone in Berlin (2017) What Vincent Perez's plodding, predictable, utterly perfunctory WWII drama fails to recognise is that it doesn't even have a particularly good story on its hands. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 57% Crosscurrent (Chang jiang tu) (2016) Yang Chao's film is stunning to look at but ultimately confuses profundity with incomprehensible philosophical gesturing. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 92% A Quiet Passion (2017) Cynthia Nixon shines in a film that finds poetry in the everyday, grounding the elusive icon with wit, warmth, and humanity. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Soy Nero (2017) While occasionally meandering, there is no denying that Soy Nero persists as an effective indictment of the hypocritical institutions, both political and personal, that mediate local and national categorisation. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 53% Genius (2016) While the film fails to live up to its namesake, it's a starry, solid account of a literary icon and the man who brought him to the world. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 79% Where to Invade Next (2016) Idealism is admirable, but Moore's simplification of the potential solutions to complex national crises is ultimately naive; challenging hegemonic infrastructure and national discourse requires a little more than a few nice ideas haphazardly presented. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet News From Planet Mars (Des Nouvelles De La Planète Mars) (2016) An outwardly odd if quietly clever existential drama that trades in satire and biting black humour. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery (2016) Lullaby boasts Diaz's typically impressive visuals, deep sense of time and place, and enigmatic approach to storytelling, but it feels loose, unfocused in places, and, again, too long. - One Room With A View EDIT

1/5 91% Creepy (Kuripi: Itsuwari no rinjin) (2016) Creepy is a sterile bore that, at 130 gruelling minutes, considerably outstays its welcome. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet A Dragon Arrives! (Ejdeha Vared Mishavad!) (2016) Mani Haghighi interweaves various narratives and timelines to blend history, allegory, and magical realism into a spellbinding film... - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Saint Amour (2016) At heart Saint Amour is a simple, likeable comedy... - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 86% Loev (2015) Loev is vital filmmaking from a powerful new voice. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) Jazz is about cadences, rhythm, and daring; everything that this dry biopic seems to lack. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 83% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) A wildly imaginative, erotic, and at times nightmarish slice of adult high fantasy. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 75% The BFG (2016) For the millions who owe the breadth of their childhood imaginations to Dahl, there's plenty to love, if only it could offer a little more depth. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 71% The Commune (Kollektivet) (2017) If The Commune was entirely Anna's story then perhaps the film would have fared better. It falls down almost entirely on the strength of her husband Erik's character. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 82% Chi-Raq (2015) Utterly unafraid to point its finger, Chi-Raq is nothing less than a rousing success. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 91% Zero Days (2016) A potent reminder of the unseen threats that face the world today. You'll need a stiff drink after, but that shouldn't discourage you from seeking out this sobering, powerful, and absolutely vital film. - One Room With A View EDIT
