3.5/5 98% Free Solo (2018) Because we are fed little tidbits of biography, we look for clues therein as to how such a risky pursuit could so engulf this wide-eyed enigma.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 90% The Wild Pear Tree (Ahlat agaci) (2019) In its absorbing to and fro of mood and dialogue, The Wild Pear Tree brilliantly conjures the moments when people at odds with each other can suddenly connect.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 83% Disobedience (2018) The emotional anguish authentically expressed in Disobedience is captivating, but the film fades out unsatisfactorily, playing on sententious heroics by way of an implausible ending that can't make up its mind.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 82% Juliet, Naked (2018) Juliet, Naked tries hard but the movie flounders between the streams of lame comedy and the springs of affection.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 100% The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid (2017) The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid - one man who simply wants to stay in his house and in his fields - is in sum a fascinating portrait of a determined son of the land.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 97% 1945 (2017) Marvellously directed and acted, 1945 shows how those who practice deception for their own ends are likely to pay the price and in ways they may not foresee. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 No Score Yet The Silver Branch (2017) The Silver Branch is an absorbing, brilliant film that should be honoured everywhere prizes are given, for delving delicately and drinking deep at the well of one man's story, one family's joy and heartbreak. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 97% Columbus (2017) Columbus is in sum a compelling indie slice of life that does not try to manipulate you with cellos or violins, but rather employs plenty of that valuable thing, silence‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 97% Lucky (2017) Harry Dean Stanton's swansong as an actor is a wryly affectionate exercise that has some arresting moments but teeters towards sentimentality because of some dud notes in the screenplay. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

1.5/5 29% King of Thieves (2019) The film is trading cheaply and knowingly on former glories when it should be concentrating on a story which in truth does not have much comic value in the first place.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 No Score Yet Elvis: '68 Comeback Special (2018) The camera only loves the man himself, perhaps a measure of his stardom, or otherwise that was what the Colonel wanted.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 84% Under the Tree (Undir trénu) (2018) Director Sigurðsson turns the screws as far as he can in this blackly absurdist tour de force, with a mostly smart and original screenplay.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 93% Sicilian Ghost Story (2018) While there are hallucinatory elements which are integral to the story, there is at the same time a curiously rugged cinematic artistry about the film which is in Italian with English subtitles.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 71% Edie (2017) Edie leaves these charming possibilities lingering and trembles with a poignant sense of mystery and loss.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 55% Unless (2016) Alan Gilsenan's adaptation of Carol Shields' final novel Unless has the delicate touch and the humanity that characterise his documentaries. Yet somehow one is left wanting more. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2.5/5 84% The Square (2017) Ultimately, the philosophy at play is just too shallow and simplistic. Best viewed under the categories 'addictive sensationalism' or 'sophisticated, accelerated soap.' ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 95% Sweet Country (2018) A film which celebrates the mysterious, harsh landscape and those shimmering horizons of the Northern Territories in what is, aside from taut drama, a work of visionary cinematography.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) There is lots of frenetic movement, in cars or buses, and a hedonistic nightclub scene which turns into a captivatingly stylish dance routine.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4/5 93% Journey's End (2018) This haunting, sensitive film is another reminder of the futility of war, rendered small-scale and close-up in this instance but with big implications.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3/5 84% The Final Year (2018) Chris Barker has done the best with his material, and he has managed to show the dying days of an administration, warts and all at best. ‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

5/5 69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) Eric Clapton would became one of the world's greatest blues guitarists. Yet all the success in the world could not take away profound personal insecurity and an inability to trust for much of his life as this masterful film carefully documents.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

3.5/5 84% Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018) Matters would have been better if the makers had taken their hand off the throttle, quietened it down by just a few notches and let the story breathe a bit more. A valiant attempt though and not a bad film at all.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

2/5 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Passable is about the best one can say about The Limehouse Golem, although if you are a Sherlock Holmes or Jack the Ripper fan, it may well float your boat.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)

4.5/5 90% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) A Man Called Ove is a touching portrait of a grumpy, widowed 59-year-old Swede with a heart of gold underneath his curt bad manners and frightful temper. We've been here before but it's a good spin on the theme.‐ RTÉ (Ireland)
