T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 No Score Yet D-Day: The King Who Fooled Hitler (2019) Much is made of comparatively little here, but to make up for that there's fascinating wartime footage and the involvement of those guaranteed interest-piquers, double agents Garbo and Brutus. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 100% Knock Down the House (2019) It's refreshing to see how polite the Democrat political discourse is, in contrast to the deliberate boorishness of Trump. - Financial Times EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Jill Dando: The 20 Year Mystery (2019) The programme is cleverly constructed in that it presents the various scenarios, making each seem utterly convincing, before poking away at inconsistencies. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 80% Avicii: True Stories (2017) With the goddesses Amy [Winehouse] and Whitney [Houston], we watched, appalled, from a distance; but with Tim Bergling, it feels as though the world lost a friend. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 100% Climate Change - The Facts (2019) The BBC documentary is a sobering, uncompromising portrait of the effects of global warming on our world. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 No Score Yet Woody Guthrie: Three Chords and The Truth (2019) If there's anything the documentary Woody Guthrie: Three Chords and The Truth brings to mind it's the cyclical nature of politics. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Unstoppable: Sean Scully and the Art of Everything (2019) The programme takes Scully far too much at his own and his dealers' estimation, so thank goodness for art critic William Feaver, who sees too much bombast and self-vaunting behind the stripes. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 77% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) Whether Holmes was even an inventor is one question thrown up by the documentary. - Financial Times EDIT

3/5 50% Sleeping With the Far Right (2019) It's a well-meaning but ultimately depressing programme fronted by a presenter who seems ill-equipped to counter the murkiness she uncovers. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 96% Three Identical Strangers (2018) This haunting documentary uncovers as much of the truth as is possible. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet Torvill & Dean (2018) Gillies Mackinnon's film gives the impression of keeping closely to the true story, while tweaking a scene or character here and there for effect. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 79% Brexit (2019) A whimper rather than a bang seems an entirely appropriate note to end on. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 90% Fyre (2019) There's no sight sadder than young people who simply wanted to party being crushingly let down. - Financial Times EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet The Gentleman Driver (2018) Screen out the bombastic soundtrack and you might find yourself caring, just a bit. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 100% David Bowie: Finding Fame (2019) Finding Fame is the third film in Francis Whately's Bowie trilogy, after David Bowie: Five Years and David Bowie: The Last Five Years and is by far the most intriguing. - Financial Times EDIT

3/5 51% Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) While the sententious script is at best serviceable, dark knots at the heart of the story are well worth grappling with. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 100% The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead (2015) Wes Orshoski's punkumentary The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead makes a good stab (key Damned word) at imposing a linear narrative, but their story is just too messed up. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 No Score Yet Make Me Up (2018) Rachel Maclean packs an awful lot into just over an hour in her incendiary film Make Me Up... - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 100% Shirkers (2018) Out of the ashes of the original Shirkers rose the documentary Shirkers, every bit as exceptional as its forebear sought to be. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 96% Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (2018) This portrait highlights many moments of true genius, even if we now see terror in those bright blue eyes and rictus grin. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 80% What We Started (2018) The documentary follows Cox's winding down and Garrix's rise, along with an entertaining, if familiar, history of electronic dance music. - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 100% Recovery Boys (2018) The final outcome may be mixed, but viewers will concur with a sobbing Ryan that "helping people who everyone else in society looks down on - it's amazing." - Financial Times EDIT

5/5 98% City of Ghosts (2017) Astonishing viewing - but it will haunt you. - Financial Times EDIT

4/5 100% Killed By My Debt (2018) Chance Perdomo is powerfully empathetic as the panicking Jerome... only a traffic warden with a heart of stone could remain unmoved. - Financial Times EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Secret History: Churchill's Secret Affair (2018) Winston and Clementine represented the unshakeable, united front of an British nation. Doris's subsequent story is full of pathos. - Financial Times EDIT

95% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) The Two Towers is a satisfying and wholly gripping drama in its own right. Inevitably, Janus-like, it looks back to the Shire, and forward to the hour of doom. And after three hours, you will too. - Independent (UK) EDIT

89% Bhaji On the Beach (1995) Plot and motivation are both contrived, but once the story gets going, first-time director Gurinder Chadha extracts maximum fun from her sedate matrons and wild teenagers let loose in a working-class holiday hell. - Time Out EDIT

16% The Karate Kid, Part III (1989) After suffering endless abuse, Daniel wins with just a few well placed whacks: those expecting standard wish-fulfilment fantasy will be disappointed that (in tune with the philosophy, of course) he didn't give the punk a pasting. - Time Out EDIT

28% The Punisher (1989) Destructive, reprehensible, and marvellous fun. - Time Out EDIT
