4/5 100% Moon, 66 Questions (2021) Delicate and empathetic, Moon, 66 Questions is an impressive debut feature. Part coming-of-age, part illness narrative, the film is above all an intimate portrait of Artemis as she is forced to reevaluate her relationship with her father. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 80% Delete History (Effacer l'historique) (2020) Drawn into complete ridicule, there is very little that remains relatable, and the superficial narrative which leads all three to ultimately renounce their digital dependency (at least for a while) fails to move. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 83% Pinocchio (2020) Pinocchio is still an enjoyable film, boasting an appropriately whimsical score and beautiful production design, and succeeds in creating a fairy tale even among the realism of poverty-stricken rural Italy. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 93% Bacurau (Nighthawk) (2020) With a set up as large as this, Bacurau would have benefitted from the more generous space of a (mini-)series in order to explore the nuances of this highly ambitious concept more fully. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 67% The Extraordinary Journey of Celeste Garcia (El viaje extraordinario de Celeste García) (2018) Celeste García is a truly original and affectionately humorous take on the sci-fi genre.

2/5 40% Golden Youth (Une jeunesse dorée) (2019) Golden Youth is, at times, visually stunning: both costumes and cinematography stand out, but ultimately cannot distract from a weak script. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 51% Destination Wedding (2018) Destination Wedding is nothing if not wasted potential, weighed down by a script which fails to produce any spark on screen, underlined by an incongruously cheesy score. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 89% Hormigas (El despertar de las hormigas) (2019) Sudasassi Furniss shows us an ordinary life, and her directorial choices reflect that. The cinematography is familiar and intimate; there is no need for grandeur in this sensitive portrait of a mundane existence. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 89% Carmen & Lola (Carmen y Lola) (2018) The film has its faults...but these are outweighed by its rare and authentic portrayal of Roma in cinema, as well as the hopeful message it carries for those members of the LGBT community who face similar obstacles. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Yung (2018) The film's deliberately blasé attitude, mirrored in its protagonists, ultimately begs the question: if they don't care, why should we? - One Room With A View EDIT
