Saint Maud review – Gothic British horror makes for a strong directorial debut from Rose Glass

Rose Glass’ debut is an uneasy ride through religion, mystery and gore.

Supernova film review
London Film Festival 2020: Supernova review – a moving film about the human condition

This UK road-trip has a lot of dark material, but handles it with dignity.

Undine review
