T-Meter Title | Year
45% The Prodigy (2019) Given its status as pretty standard genre fare on the surface, the film goes down as a pleasant surprise and one that embraces its dark heart. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 58% Pet Sematary (2019) Pet Sematary emerges as a delightfully macabre nightmare that is not afraid to get nasty and channels the dark spirit of Stephen King into an intense, cinematic ride - Flickering Myth EDIT

84% Girl (2018) An emotionally rich portrayal of a trans story that has a tremendous central performance at its heart. - Flickering Myth EDIT

55% Under the Silver Lake (2019) A ramshackle mystery thriller that only occasionally tosses its audience a fragment of its solution - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 50% Fisherman's Friends (2019) A heart-warming and rousing underdog tale that's as British as a cone of chips wrapped in newspaper - Flickering Myth EDIT

19% Little Italy (2018) There's nothing that's new in Little Italy and it often seems like the film has undergone some bizarre sort of quantum leap from a time a few decades ago when movies like this reigned supreme. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 100% Rosie (2018) A movie that boasts as much emotional warmth as it does savage turmoil - Flickering Myth EDIT

93% Ray & Liz (2019) Ella Smith dominates proceedings with a very strong performance, but the sparse narrative and fairly lacklustre supporting cast is on far shakier ground. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 98% Thunder Road (2018) This is absolutely Cummings' film in every sense of that idea and he deserves credit for his sheer willingness to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, at his performance. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 78% Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) (2019) A carefully performed and elegantly crafted thriller about the poisonous power of secrets that delivers all of the answers the audience wants, while making it clear they're less important than what's going on inside the character's muddled heads. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 89% Capernaum (Capharnaüm) (2018) At times a savage watch, Capernaum is a film that rewards those capable of stomaching its darker edges with some real catharsis. - Flickering Myth EDIT

2/5 44% The Cannibal Club (2019) The Cannibal Club feels like something of a missed opportunity. The whole thing is too controlled and subdued to ever explode into the powerful project it should have been. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 83% Jellyfish (2018) The sentimental heart of the film is a packet of Space Invaders. There's not a single more effective nod to endearingly naff Britishness than that. - Flickering Myth EDIT

5/5 93% Fighting with My Family (2019) This is a movie that will charm everyone, whether you can identify the most complex of submission holds or you're still clueless as to the nature of a powerslam. - Flickering Myth EDIT

4/5 94% Burning (Beoning) (2018) When Jong-su states, late in the movie, that "the world is a mystery", he may as well be speaking for the audience - even after they leave the cinema. - Flickering Myth EDIT

78% Anna and the Apocalypse (2018) Things are already grim and knowingly tacky before zombies arrive, and director John McPhail's movie uses his film's genre-bending position as a musical to play with tropes. - New Statesman EDIT
