The Witches (2020)
Did we really need another stab at it? No, but Anne Hathaway clearly relished the opportunity.

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.

Time (2020)
Time is a pure, unembellished call for empathy. It would be foolish to ignore it.

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?

Miranda July's films are miniature fairytales played out of tune - whimsical and sweet, with a tartness right at their centre.

[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.

5/5
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.

It's a far more nuanced, evolved take on mental illness than most films are capable of.

On The Rocks (2020)
On the Rocks is the most grounded of Coppola's films, though its wit and charm are just as plentiful.

Channing Godfrey Peoples's debut -- the mellow, tender-hearted Miss Juneteenth -- is a portrait of a life robbed of its dreams.

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.

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.

When The Devil All the Time does plunge into the moral abyss, it's intoxicating -- if only it did it more often.

We could all do with a little dose of Bill and Ted's optimism - the simple belief that kindness and camaraderie can bring us all together.

Rocks (2020)

It's much easier, says The Painted Bird, to simply throw our hands in the air and declare humanity doomed.

Its declarations are too easy, its conclusions too neat.

The Roads Not Taken, an understated drama from Sally Potter, is rich with small moments of intimacy.

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.

Amy Seimetz wrote and shot her film ... long before the Covid-19 pandemic. But the parallels are undeniably eerie.

Hope Gap (2020)
Though the cast gamely delivers each idea ... Hope Gap never seems to grasp the crucial differences between theatre and film.

Tenet (2020)
Tenet is a thrilling place to get lost in.

Adolescence is put forth as the personal and poetic peak of all human existence ... It's a strange, myopic kind of nostalgia.

The film serves as an ode to the sexually naive - pioneers in their own pleasure.

A few clumsy jokes aside, including an extended bit on chickens crossing roads, there's much to admire about The One and Only Ivan.

Babyteeth (2020)
Shannon Murphy's Babyteeth ... makes for a thrillingly subversive work.

[A]ny self-seriousness that the film might possess feels undercut by its obsession with pop culture...

Artemis Fowl (2020)
The mischievous glint in [Judi Dench]'s eyes is Artemis Fowl's only nod to irony and self-awareness.

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.

5/5
The Assistant isn't about empowerment (that's a task for other filmmakers), but presents a cruel, unvarnished reality.

Beastie Boys Story [is] appealing even to rap novices, offering a rare opportunity for two artists to track their own creative, personal, and moral evolution.

Trolls World Tour is clear on one thing: never should glitter and rainbows be automatically equated with brainlessness.

Iron Mask (2019)
The Iron Mask will be a curiosity only to those most committed to the mantra of 'so bad, it's good'.

Elephant (2020)
Though Elephant's narrative fakery is unlikely to please acolytes of David Attenborough, it's still a small thing of beauty.

Sky Cinema's new family adventure seems built to be consumed and quickly forgotten.

Unhinged (2020)
Derrick Borte's film is tense, slick, and finds just enough mildly ludicrous causes of death to earn its high-concept thriller credentials.
