      Life Is Beautiful (1997) Schmaltzy, treacly, saccharine — call it what you like, if you’re not blubbing by the end, check your pulse. - Times (UK)

      Offended by Irvine Welsh (2020) Welsh probed and prodded with great warmth, intelligence and skill, but Offended By Irvine Welsh was more of an essay with a through-line that rarely deviated. - Times (UK)

      The Night Notre Dame Burned (2020) Unlike poor old Quasimodo, the great lady was saved from destruction. Yet the extraordinary thing about The Night Notre-Dame Burned was that one felt an acute heart-in-mouth fear that things might not turn out that way. - Times (UK)

      (undefined) It was like an exhibition of student posters come to life - Sex Pistols imagery... and calls to be "cool like Fonzies". All slightly juvenile and tedious, yes, but this programme, with its whizzy graphics and guitar soundtrack, was a sucker for it. - Times (UK)

      (undefined) The image of this strange, hugely likeable woman - workmanlike and slightly ethereal, eccentric but no-nonsense - scurrying to her flat near her home on the Devon coast was delightful. - Times (UK)
