3/5 95% Gaza (2019) Whilst the interviews evoke great sympathy, the "characters" here do not to want merely to be pitied. They want their stories to help create change. - The Arts Desk EDIT

3/5 55% The Dead Don't Die (2019) It is an orchestrated confusion, lurching somewhere between a joyfully zany tribute and an over-intelligent, at times dark, social critique. - The Arts Desk EDIT

4/5 97% Free Solo (2018) By splicing in the intimate human dramas, too, Free Solo avoids over-burdening us with dread whilst also illuminating the real characters behind the most extreme of passions. - The Arts Desk EDIT

1/5 12% Siberia (2018) They spend too much time discussing how the behavioural customs differ between America and Russia, and not enough on plot. - The Arts Desk EDIT
