T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 80% Zanka Contact (2020) Zanka Contact is a stylish and exciting watch, delivered with great acting and a catchy theme song, but its tonal shifts and messy plot mean that it never quite finds its feet. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 94% Possessor: Uncut (2020) For all its many strengths, the pacing and storytelling leave a little to be desired -- but there's plenty here to get a sublime science-fiction thrill from. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 67% New Order (Nuevo orden) (2020) A promising start to New Order and some decent performances fail to drag this politically vacuous mess from a gory and belligerent gutter. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 80% Ultraviolence (2020) Ultraviolence is a piece of evidence, an accusation, and a call for the remembrance of those killed by untouchable police. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 99% Time (2020) Time is an atmospheric and poetic feature that artfully conveys a family's endless waiting and equally infinite determination in the face of political erasure and systemic racism. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 11% The Unfamiliar (2020) It really is the case of character development and context being sacrificed in place of jump scares and arbitrary exoticism in this scary but over-familiar horror. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Sisters with Transistors (2020) Sisters With Transistors is an audio-visual tasting platter, offering a poetic and engaging selection of thoughts and sounds from the last century, and inspiring its viewers to delve deeper into the history of electronic music. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 96% Rojo (2019) Rojo is a tense portrait of an era seen through one ordinary citizen. Its ambiguity touches on the frustrating, but the atmosphere offers a haunting insight into a complex national struggle. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 84% The Brink (2019) [The Brink's] observational style is undoubtedly problematic. Despite this, the film's behind-the-scenes focus on the rise of European fascism makes for important, if nerve-jangling, viewing. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Border South (2019) Without sanitizing the horrors of life on the trail, [Raúl O. Paz] Pastrana shows the resilience of those many thousands who are forced to make an impossible choice in the hope of a better future. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 65% XY Chelsea (2019) XY Chelsea commits neither to being a portrait of Manning nor to investigating the aftermath of her political actions. Instead it floats dreamily between the two, never quite getting to the bottom of the many questions it raises. - One Room With A View EDIT

3/5 51% Tolkien (2019) Tolkien is a pleasant watch. Its earnestness might not be to all tastes, but perhaps that is a reasonable reflection of Middle Earth: a serious world in which romance and friendship are all that is left to believe in. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 95% A Cambodian Spring (2018) A heart-breaking account of the slow struggle of poverty, featuring local activists whose bravery is a humbling testament to the strength of these communities. - One Room With A View EDIT

4/5 77% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) Its mature and delicate exploration of human emotion makes it a moving watch, and it avoids the trap of excessive sentimentality or violence in its portrayal of a survivor yearning for justice. - One Room With A View EDIT

2/5 51% Escape Room (2019) Escape Room manages to deliver even less than it offers, and with an already low bar, the exciting design and good performances cannot salvage this messy horror. - One Room With A View EDIT

5/5 98% The Heiresses (Las Herederas) (2019) It's a quiet, beautiful film, which joyfully explores its theme of attraction and love among women. - One Room With A View EDIT
