T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 100% Escape From Dubai: The Mystery of the Missing Princess (2018) Escape from Dubai proved a damning indictment of an antediluvian, intrinsically unjust regime that seems, like so many others in the region, to operate above the law and beneath the contempt of anyone with any respect for human rights. - Times (UK) EDIT

4/5 92% Arcadia (2017) At once a celebration and elegy, warning and fairy tale, this was a striking, troubling and above all intoxicating film. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Raymond Briggs: Snowmen, Bogeymen & Milkmen (2019) Brimming with the love and melancholy of the season, this was a festive treat to savour. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet A Day in the Life of Earth (2018) It was a humbling reminder of, on the one hand, our insignificance, and, on the other, our disproportionately damaging impact on the planet. A sobering but significant note on which to welcome in the New Year. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Gun No. 6 (2017) The roots of gun crime run deep and wide; favouring punishment over rehabilitation and vilification over understanding may be easier, but are unlikely to see Gun No 6 and its sisters decommissioned any sooner. - Times (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Drowning in Plastic (2018) Dispiriting without being defeatist, Drowning in Plastic made valuable contributions to an urgent debate, assessing cause and effect, prescribing potential solutions and recognising likely obstacles. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

1/5 No Score Yet The New Wife (2018) It was exhausting and distasteful. - Times (UK) EDIT

No Score Yet Royal Paintbox (2013) It's fitfully interesting, but a little bloodless and hamstrung by the Prince's own somewhat limited screen presence. - Time Out EDIT

No Score Yet Fresh Meat (2013) It takes a little while to get going, but it's never less than supremely watchable. - Time Out EDIT

61% Clear History (2013) The high points - especially a brilliantly worked running gag about soft-rockers Chicago - are spread too thinly, and David's improvised comedy of embarrassment is now very familiar. - Time Out EDIT

88% The Wipers Times (2013) It's a quietly remarkable story, told with respect and, appropriately, irreverence. - Time Out EDIT

4/5 64% George Michael: Freedom (2017) [George Michael: Freedom] may have embraced hagiography at times, but it showcased a rare, compelling, self-effacing talent - Times (UK) EDIT
