Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey review – great performances and catchy songs make up for other shortcomings

His House review – a moving and incredibly relevant horror film

Remi Weekes’ directorial debut could be a future horror classic.

Rebecca review 2020
Rebecca review – a well-directed thrill ride, with a different feel from Hitchcock’s original

Great direction and a stunning performance make this a worthy challenger to the Hitchcock original.

The Secret Garden film review
The Secret Garden review – a perfectly fine British family film

Heyman’s latest will probably fill the void of a family film coming out this winter.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 review
The Trial of the Chicago 7 review – carrying an important message, but lacking in focus

Sorkin’s latest has a lot to say, but doesn’t quite know how.

Ammonite review
London Film Festival 2020: Ammonite review – strong turns from Winslet and Ronan, but a story that falls short

Strong performances by Winslet and Ronan are let down by a film that never really tells its story.

Possessor film review
London Film Festival 2020: Possessor review – a visually brilliant, visceral tale of identity

Brandon Cronenberg’s horror is a visual feast, and a brutal gore-fest.

Limbo film review 2020

Sharrock’s tale is a frank look at an issue that dominates modern discourse.
