3/5 91% Bacurau (Nighthawk) (2019) 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. Instead of focusing on the actual space travel, the film foregrounds the very human emotions of those desperate to escape their mundane existence. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Insumisas (2019) The script by writer-director team Fernando Perez and Laura Cazador is taut and full of tension, bringing to life this tale of epic proportions in a dense 94 minutes. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 82% This is not Berlin (2019) To tell the story of Carlos and his exploration of identity, (Hari) Sama expertly draws on the full potential of the cinematic medium. - One Room With A View EDIT

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 53% 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

4/5 97% Woman at War (Kona fer í stríð) (2019) Woman at War is a thoroughly original film and presents a wonderfully quirky antidote to the mass of Hollywood blockbusters. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 86% Hannah (2018) The film's stripped down minimalism, paired with the subtle cinematography of Chayse Irvin, working on 35mm film, creates the perfect vehicle for Rampling's formidable craft. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 99% Amazing Grace (2019) The film is a precious time capsule, preserving the raw and thrilling presence of the Queen of Soul both for those who saw her on stage before, and those who never had the chance. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 93% What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael (2018) What She Said is truly a film for cinephiles, who can delight in the many clips and trace the careers of some of today's most well-known directors back to [Pauline] Kael's criticism. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 98% Varda by Agnès (2019) Rather than leaving the writing of her story up to others, [Agnès] Varda makes a bold statement by taking authorial control herself, focusing on what she wants to be remembered for. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 100% 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 33% Farewell to the Night (L'Adieu a la nuit) (2019) Farewell to the Night serves as a great showcase for Deneuve's talents, providing her with a meaty role as her character runs through a broad spectrum of emotions. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 79% Photograph (2019) While the far-fetched setup can easily be traced to Bollywood inspiration, Photograph, stripped of the music and dancing, convinces with its tenderness and portrayal of a romance that never progresses further than holding hands onscreen. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 77% Who You Think I Am (Celle que vous croyez) (2019) While the director clearly attempts to move beyond the familiar story by touching on universal issues, his efforts fall flat. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 100% All Is Well (Alles ist gut) (2018) Only in the end does the strength of the script falter, wrapping up the plot too quickly and too neatly. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 93% 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

4/5 70% God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunija (2019) The strength of God Exists, Her Name is Petrunya lies clearly in the empathetic and nuanced script and performances, particularly from Nusheva, whose face communicates her character's development expertly. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 95% Ghost Town Anthology (2019) Ghost Town Anthology is a solid genre film of particular social relevance: while the events portrayed take on increasingly supernatural qualities, the true horror lies in the reality of living in rural Quebec. - One Room With A View EDIT
