69% Ammonite (2020) It felt disjointed. I loved God's Own Country but with this film, Francis Lee misses the mark for me which is down to the script rather than his direction. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

91% A Brixton Tale (2021) A Brixton Tale takes a while to find its stride, but when it does it becomes a relentless and compelling tale of love, racism and class. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

60% The Reunited States (2020) The Reunited States will most certainly light a fire in you, especially this idea of dehumanising and division that so many countries endure due to the rise of identity politics and casual racial bias and hatred. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

18% Endless (2020) This film just plods along like a Hallmark type film but takes itself far too seriously and neither the script nor the acting can meet a reasonable standard. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

79% Summer of 85 (Été 85) (2021) This is a coming of age story that is refreshingly different and nuanced. The Summer of '85 reminds us of how everything is dramatic to the young and, your first love is the one that cuts the deepest. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

88% Monsoon (2020) As a film it needs something more than it currently has, even 85 minutes feels too long. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2020
54% Waiting for the Barbarians (2020) Waiting For The Barbarians is a slow burn of a film that gets distracted by the social commentary and the story suffers. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2020
88% Les Misérables (2020) Les Miserables is a tour de force and it's hard to believe this is a debut film. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

No Score Yet Dollhouse: The Eradication of Female Subjectivity from American Popular Culture (2020) The use of heavily stylised dolls and props is a stroke of genius by Nicole Brending. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

100% Spiral Farm (2019) Spiral Farm is worth watching for a refreshingly different take on the coming of age genre and a surprising ending. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2020
100% Never Be Done: The Richard Glen Lett Story (2020) Whilst two thirds of the film does feel relentless, the final third is uplifting and I dare you not to applaud Richard at the end, for his better taste in jokes but also the sticking with the sober path. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2020
86% Soundtrack to Sixteen (2020) For a debut feature, Soundtrack to Sixteen is quite impressive and promising future for this director/writer sister duo. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 4, 2020
85% Soundwave (2018) It is on the whole engaging although the script, especially the emotionally charged sections, is not as focused as it needs to be leading to the film feeling longer than it actually is. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted May 19, 2020
77% Judy & Punch (2020) For all its flaws, Judy and Punch is a timely examination of social norms that have long stood commonplace, men being believed over women no matter how flawed the man, low level violence and mob hysteria. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2020
94% System Crasher (Systemsprenger) (2019) The power of System Crasher lies in a script, from which it is clear has been carefully researched and worked on over time. It doesn't seek to explain every little detail but treats the audience as intelligent. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2020
93% And Then We Danced (2020) This is a gem of a film with incredible cinematography, dance and nuanced performances that will leave you breathless and emotionally drained but it is worth it. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2020
92% The Garden Left Behind (2020) It's thought provoking about judgements we make and first time writer/director Flavio Alves manages for the most part to walk that fine line between melodrama and preaching. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2020
98% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) What makes Parasite such a good film is that it tells a story first and foremost, so the social commentary whilst ever present isn't so overpowering that you cannot just enjoy the story being told. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2020
87% Emma. (2020) There is certainly an attempt or at least a flirtation with some deeper idea but neither the script or direction commit and so what the audience is left with is a rather simplistic and superficial adaptation of Austen's Emma. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2020
45% Quezon's Game (2020) The film doesn't really pack the emotional punch it should on screen. Instead it goes at a gentler pace and never really manages to capture on the edge of your seat tension. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

87% Hustlers (2019) The scenes where the ladies get ready are the best really highlighting the reality of this fantasy world. However, with a patchy script, the pace and interest soon start to wane and as an audience member you might think you've been hustled. - Liquid Marmalade EDIT

53% Tell It to the Bees (2019) As surprising as the ending is, it is a little too late for what feels an all too predictable film. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT
