100% The Ice King (2017) With its attention to family and changing attitudes both to gender and sexuality... this was social history of the best, by which I mean the slyest, kind.‐ New Statesman

No Score Yet Duran Duran: There's Something You Should Know (2018) Their enthusiasm - for music, art, clothes, for everything, in fact - is braided with a seriousness that is both touching and comical. ‐ New Statesman

No Score Yet The Many Primes of Muriel Spark (2018) Kirsty Wark took us smartly through the novelist's several reinventions, pausing only occasionally to wonder at her restless bravery, those techniques for survival that must sometimes have seemed to others like nothing so much as casual cruelty. ‐ New Statesman

62% George Michael: Freedom (2017) The film wanted for grit, and for context. Where we needed Johnny Marr, we got only James Corden. Where we could have done with a Simon Reynolds-style figure, we had to make do with a nodding Mark Ronson.‐ New Statesman
