2/5 38% Tremors: Shrieker Island (2020) It may speak eloquently to its fanbase, but it's guaranteed to baffle any outsider.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 23, 2020
3/5 84% You Cannot Kill David Arquette (2020) All that's really needed to understand Arquette's motivations are the words of his brother, Richmond: "David wants love"... For all its bravado and mystique, what's most striking about You Cannot Kill David Arquette are these simple truths.‐ Independent (UK)

3/5 100% Billie (2020) There's a lingering sense that Kuehl understood something deeper, but Billie never seems all that curious to find out what that might be.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2020
4/5 94% Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) Jingle Jangle might just be this season's showstopper.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2020
1/5 25% Hillbilly Elegy (2020) A narrative that belongs to a writer who refuses to admit his larger place in the world - and a filmmaker who thinks that a positive outlook alone can fix the world.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2020
4/5 73% An American Pickle (2020) Its premise may sound quaint, but the whimsy of An American Pickle helps nurture all kinds of delicate emotions.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 12, 2020
3/5 77% Summerland (2020) Summerland shows us how being robbed of self-expression - sexual or emotional - can feel like slow suffocation. But it's too afraid of uncertainty.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 12, 2020
5/5 81% I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) If there is hope to be found, it's in Buckley's lopsided smile - the trademark of an actor who's shown herself capable of unearthing fathomless empathy.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 12, 2020
2/5 33% The New Mutants (2020) The New Mutants tramples over its own comic book credentials in order to chase after a concept already more convincingly dealt with by The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
3/5 82% The Boys in the Band (2020) Despite its origins, Mantello's film still feels like another shiny, highly consumable product of what could be called "the Murphyverse".‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
2/5 40% Rebecca (2020) This dreary, garish take on Rebecca never justifies its presence.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
3/5 66% The Secret Garden (2020) Today's Secret Garden is modern to its core: socially conscious, but also wildly overstimulated.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
4/5 86% Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) The risks that Baron Cohen took here - both artistic and personal - are admirable. And the pay-off is worth a lifetime of being subjected to the words "very nice!"‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
4/5 91% Relic (2020) It's that slow creep that lies at the heart of Natalie Erika James's debut film. Co-written with author Christian White, her debut is the richest, most satisfying brand of chiller there is.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
5/5 87% Shirley (2020) Shirley is sensuous and beguiling, an act of pure witchcraft.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
4/5 100% His House (2020) A commanding debut from writer-director Remi Weekes, here working from a story written by Felicity Evans and Toby Venables.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
2/5 53% Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020) It's a sequel suffering from all the things sequels tend to suffer from: familiar tropes, an explosion in special effects, and thematic weightlessness. Now it's bigger, shaggier, and far less focused.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
4/5 89% Mank (2020) Mank leaves its mark - in its own way, on its own terms.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 11, 2020
4/5 68% Ammonite (2020) Kate Winslet is ferocious...‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Nov 6, 2020
3/5 50% The Witches (2020) Did we really need another stab at it? No, but Anne Hathaway clearly relished the opportunity.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 21, 2020
2/5 90% The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) It has all the moral force of someone who spends their days writing sarcastic replies to Trump's tweets, all the while he tears down democracy piece by piece.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 15, 2020
4/5 99% Time (2020) Time is a pure, unembellished call for empathy. It would be foolish to ignore it.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 15, 2020
5/5 97% Saint Maud (2020) Rose Glass's debut film is an exquisite slice of religious horror, centred on an unexpected premise: what would the opposite of demonic possession look like?‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 12, 2020
4/5 89% Kajillionaire (2020) Miranda July's films are miniature fairytales played out of tune - whimsical and sweet, with a tartness right at their centre.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 12, 2020
4/5 98% The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020) [Radha's] real hope is if she can create her own space. The Forty-Year-Old Version -- witty and deeply personal -- is Blank doing exactly that. ‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 12, 2020
5/5 100% Soul (2020) [N]ot only does Soul live up to Pixar's own impossibly high standards, but it represents the very best the studio has to offer: beauty, humour, heart, and a gut-punch of an existential crisis.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 11, 2020
4/5 78% Eternal Beauty (2019) It's a far more nuanced, evolved take on mental illness than most films are capable of.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 3, 2020
4/5 86% On The Rocks (2020) On the Rocks is the most grounded of Coppola's films, though its wit and charm are just as plentiful.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Oct 2, 2020
4/5 99% Miss Juneteenth (2020) Channing Godfrey Peoples's debut -- the mellow, tender-hearted Miss Juneteenth -- is a portrait of a life robbed of its dreams.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2020
3/5 60% Tesla (2020) The biopic is an impossible art. You either bore your audience or reduce your subject to a mere collection of ideas and symbols.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2020
3/5 91% Enola Holmes (2020) [Millie Bobby] Brown gets to be witty, candid, and confident -- all the things a young heroine needs to inspire the next generation.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2020
3/5 64% The Devil All the Time (2020) When The Devil All the Time does plunge into the moral abyss, it's intoxicating -- if only it did it more often.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Sep 25, 2020

Posted Sep 11, 2020
3/5 43% The Roads Not Taken (2020) The Roads Not Taken, an understated drama from Sally Potter, is rich with small moments of intimacy.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Sep 10, 2020
4/5 74% Mulan (2020) Mulan isn't what we've come to expect from Disney's live-action remakes - it's far more sober, meditative, and refined.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Sep 3, 2020
4/5 85% She Dies Tomorrow (2020) Amy Seimetz wrote and shot her film ... long before the Covid-19 pandemic. But the parallels are undeniably eerie.‐ Independent (UK)

3/5 63% Hope Gap (2020) Though the cast gamely delivers each idea ... Hope Gap never seems to grasp the crucial differences between theatre and film.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 27, 2020

Posted Aug 21, 2020
2/5 61% Chemical Hearts (2020) Adolescence is put forth as the personal and poetic peak of all human existence ... It's a strange, myopic kind of nostalgia.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 20, 2020
4/5 94% Yes, God, Yes (2020) The film serves as an ode to the sexually naive - pioneers in their own pleasure.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 20, 2020
3/5 70% The One and Only Ivan (2020) A few clumsy jokes aside, including an extended bit on chickens crossing roads, there's much to admire about The One and Only Ivan.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 20, 2020
4/5 94% Babyteeth (2020) Shannon Murphy's Babyteeth ... makes for a thrillingly subversive work. ‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 14, 2020
2/5 60% Project Power (2020) [A]ny self-seriousness that the film might possess feels undercut by its obsession with pop culture...‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 13, 2020
2/5 8% Artemis Fowl (2020) The mischievous glint in [Judi Dench]'s eyes is Artemis Fowl's only nod to irony and self-awareness.‐ Independent (UK)
Posted Aug 11, 2020
3/5 93% Da 5 Bloods (2020) Da 5 Bloods is so busy with ideas, thoughts, and passions that, at times, it feels like it's drowning in them.‐ Independent (UK)
