4/5 EMMA. (2020) Fiona Underhill A great cast of young British talent, jaw-droppingly stunning costumes and an enjoyable interplay of music and comedy - this is a land that you will want to escape to again and again. EDIT

3/5 () Fiona Underhill The period setting, sumptuous score, stunning costume design, Tessa Thompson - there is much to be enjoyed in this type of film, which doesn't come along very often. Even if it doesn't fulfill its promise. EDIT

4/5 Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020) Fiona Underhill Hittman is one of the foremost writer-directors of the coming-of-age experience. The performances she draws out of her young cast members are extraordinary. An important film which left many audience members shaken with its urgent and vital message. EDIT

4/5 Jumbo (2019) Fiona Underhill Wittock's script, combined with Merlant's utter sincerity will make you believe fully in this unorthodox relationship. This performance cements Merlant as one of the most exciting actors emerging from Europe. EDIT

3.5/5 Luxor (2020) Fiona Underhill Sensitively written and directed by Zeina Durra and with a typically mesmerising central performance from Andrea Riseborough. EDIT

3.5/5 Promising Young Woman (2020) Fiona Underhill A confident and confrontational feature debut. It will be fascinating to see where Emerald Fennell goes from here. EDIT

5/5 Shirley (2020) Fiona Underhill This is one of those films that will reward repeat viewings, it is rich with details that can be picked apart to your heart's content. Decker is a major film-making talent. EDIT

5/5 And Then We Danced (2019) Fiona Underhill This film achieves something truly special, in terms of us investing in the characters. Exactly what cinema should be - giving us an experience of a different culture, whilst connecting us through the universal theme of first love. EDIT

4/5 () Fiona Underhill Coming from the world of documentary, Antigone is an astonishing narrative feature debut for Deraspe, as well as a showcase for its young star's talents. Ricci conveys noble defiance in the face of injustice with emotional maturity. EDIT

3.5/5 Harriet (2019) Fiona Underhill A beautiful score by Terence Blanchard, detailed costume design by Paul Tazewell and an excellent central performance by Cynthia Erivo all contribute to the success of this film by Kasi Lemmons. EDIT

4/5 Atlantics (2019) Fiona Underhill Atlantics has that rare combination of being absolutely contemporary and urgent in its messaging, whilst also feeling like it's already timeless and part of legend. EDIT
Posted Dec 29, 2019
4.5/5 1917 (2019) Fiona Underhill Two of this film's biggest strengths are Newman's score and MacKay's commanding central performance, as well as the visual spectacle. 1917 has done an amazing job at taking a war from 100 years ago and turning it into an urgent, immersive experience. EDIT

1/5 Cats (2019) Fiona Underhill We will not see the likes of Cats again. Which, in a way is a shame. This is one of the worst films I've ever seen. I also hope that everyone goes to see it and that it wins Best Picture at the Oscars in 2020. Can't recommend it highly enough. EDIT

3.5/5 Satanic Panic (2019) Zoe Rose Smith Satanic Panic is the perfect midnight movie to be watched with friends, pizza and beers... It doesn't take itself seriously, which means you don't have to either, ensuring even the most absurd and goofy scenes are still fun to watch. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2019
4/5 Abominable (2019) Fiona Underhill Dazzlingly radiant to look at, with family and friendships at the centre of the story feel which real and relatable - as fantastical elements only work if they swirl around something grounded in humanity. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
4/5 Color Out of Space (2019) Fiona Underhill Definitely worth seeing on a big screen with a big crowd. Funny, entertaining, grotesque and both looks and sounds beautiful. EDIT
Posted Sep 28, 2019
4/5 The Hole in the Ground (2019) Zoe Rose Smith The Hole in the Ground is psychologically unsettling and shows that single parenting is more terrifying than any monster. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
1.5/5 Girl on the Third Floor (2019) Zoe Rose Smith Girl On The Third Floor begins its renovations with some grand ideas, but once the wallpaper is peeled back, becomes a film that is just meaningless body fluids, misogyny and an identity crisis. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
1/5 Knives and Skin (2019) Zoe Rose Smith This film is a feminist wannabe and a Twin Peaks imposter which is disguised in technicolour neon vibrancy. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
5/5 Come to Daddy (2019) Zoe Rose Smith Come To Daddy is dark, unexpected, bloody and fucking hilarious - not to be missed! EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
3.5/5 It: Chapter Two (2019) Zoe Rose Smith Although not as strong as first film, IT Chapter Two will devour you through fear, nostalgia and emotional connection. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
3/5 The Fanatic (2019) Zoe Rose Smith The Fanatic is a drastic look at the dangers of fan culture, idolisation and obsession. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
3/5 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Zoe Rose Smith Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark is an atmospheric adventure film, with nostalgic fear to remind children that not all fairy tales have happy endings. EDIT
Posted Sep 14, 2019
2.5/5 Prospect (2018) Zoe Rose Smith Prospect is visually and audibly dazzling, with compelling character development but crash lands into an over-stylised and simplistic storyline. EDIT
Posted Aug 10, 2019
3.5/5 Arctic (2018) Zoe Rose Smith Arctic is a slow-moving film that focuses on humanity and one man's continuous ambition, hope and perseverance against all of the odds to save himself and another life. Mikkelsen drives this film with another outstanding performance. EDIT
Posted Aug 10, 2019
4/5 Oldboy (2003) Zoe Rose Smith Oldboy is so much more than an action film; it takes the viewer on a journey through a life destroyed, rebuilt and abolished once more. It teaches us lessons about consequences from our actions, the need to get revenge and find truth... EDIT
Posted Aug 10, 2019
4/5 Crawl (2019) Fiona Underhill Absolutely everything you could want from a Summer movie - akin to experiencing a theme park ride, UNDER 90 minutes (praise be!) and refreshingly, it is not a sequel, a reboot or franchise fare - in fact it's actually a pretty taut two-hander. EDIT
Posted Jul 14, 2019
4/5 Diamantino (2018) Fiona Underhill Diamantino is a gorgeous, kind-hearted fable about acceptance of who people are, rather than who we want them to be. A brightly coloured modern-day fairy tale with an innocent at the centre. It is funny, outrageous and incredible to look at. EDIT
Posted Jul 11, 2019
5/5 Midsommar (2019) Cameron Frew A beautiful daymare that certifies Aster as cinema's next great master of horror. EDIT
Posted Jul 4, 2019
2/5 Men in Black: International (2019) Fiona Underhill It kind of beggars belief that you could take the ingredients of Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth and make something so thuddingly dull, but somehow it has happened. A huge disappointment. EDIT
Posted Jun 17, 2019
3.5/5 Hail Satan? (2019) Fiona Underhill A well-made, entertaining documentary, which is frequently funny and frequently anger-inducing. Very much captures a snapshot of contemporary America. EDIT
Posted May 12, 2019
3/5 The Isle (2018) Fiona Underhill An atmospheric and intriguing story, with stunning visuals and music. EDIT
Posted May 8, 2019
4/5 Fast Color (2018) Fiona Underhill The portrayal of a super-power being inherited down the maternal line of a family of black women is extremely potent and will resonate with many. EDIT
Posted Apr 23, 2019
3.5/5 Rafiki (2018) Fiona Underhill Demonstrates the vibrancy and joy of the youth in overcoming an oppressive society. Kahiu has shown this through a jubilant explosion of colour and music - this film feels like a celebration and a triumph over adversity. A must-see. EDIT
Posted Apr 19, 2019
3/5 Sonja: The White Swan (2018) Fiona Underhill An interesting biopic which doesn't skate over what it takes to power your way to the top and should have you swanning to the cinema. EDIT
Posted Mar 21, 2019
4/5 Judy & Punch (2019) Fiona Underhill Judy and Punch deserves to find an audience, as it a well written and directed story. It juggles tone skillfully - managing to be funny and entertaining whilst also making serious points which are relevant to the society we are living in now. EDIT

Posted Feb 14, 2019
5/5 Animals (2019) Fiona Underhill Animals was one of the most enjoyable films of Sundance 2019 and it deserves to be a break-out hit. Spend some time with two relatable women wearing gorgeous clothes in the literary scene of a beautiful city - you won't regret it. EDIT
Posted Feb 8, 2019
5/5 Love, Antosha (2019) Fiona Underhill Love, Antosha is incredibly upsetting, but it is also truly inspiring, invigorating and life-affirming. A beautiful tribute to a beautiful soul. EDIT
