4/5 92% Children of Men (2006) It is simultaneously soul-crushing and spirit-lifting. Watching twelve years after its release, the potent themes of immigration, border control, and seeking humanity in others means Children of Men remains more timely than ever. - Screen Queens EDIT

3.5/5 34% The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018) Despite the best efforts of its cast and some memorable set pieces, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms feels like a hollow shell of what it could have been, had it been a half hour longer and explored the realms rather than just glanced over them. - Screen Queens EDIT

2/5 86% My Friend Dahmer (2017) My Friend Dahmer is far more interesting than it is engaging; a slow-paced examination of a young man on the edge of something sinister. - Screen Queens EDIT

5/5 89% You Were Never Really Here (2018) Lynne Ramsey has arrived back on our screens with a lean-cut, all-consuming character study that raises only questions and never answers; can we outlive our trauma or must we face it? - Screen Queens EDIT

3.5/5 71% Edie (2017) Edie has heart and pathos, but had the potential to be something much more, as it ticks all the boxes but never breaks out of them. - Screen Queens EDIT

4/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) The pride Del Toro takes in his world-building, and the creation of his characters and monsters, is a sheer wonder that continues to amaze me. The Shape of Water is no different. - Screen Queens EDIT

2/5 70% Lek and the Dogs (Ivan and the Dogs) (2018) A bold outing that blurs the lines between film and contemporary art, but leaves the viewer disconnected. - Screen Queens EDIT
