3/5 97% Why Don't You Just Die! (Papa, sdokhni) (2020) In a world of visually bland blockbusters, it's fun to see filmmakers stretching their stylistic muscles - Russian director Kirill Sokolov's wildly titled Why Don't You Just Die! is one such example.‐ The List

4/5 94% System Crasher (Systemsprenger) (2019) It's a stressful, draining experience, but undoubtedly worthwhile.‐ The List

3/5 93% The Perfect Candidate (2020) More of a crowd-pleaser than a probing insight into Saudi politics, The Perfect Candidate may feature a number of overfamiliar narrative beats, but its warmth and humour paper over the cracks.‐ The List

3/5 69% Escape from Pretoria (2020) Annan is economical with his storytelling; instead, his focus lies in the mechanics of the men's bid for freedom.‐ The List

3/5 90% Jihad Jane (2019) As a portrait of the two women and their motivations, it's comprehensive, but doesn't satisfactorily engage with any of the other issues raised.‐ The List

4/5 100% Talking About Trees (2019) Languidly paced, but never uninteresting, the film demonstrates the tender brotherhood that exists between four old friends who shave and massage one another, and stay up nattering in the dead of night.‐ The List

2/5 59% Line of Duty (2019) Drysdale's screenplay is a rickety foundation... most egregious is the irresponsibly pro-cop attitude underpinning it all.‐ The List

1/5 6% The Courier (2019) The film is far more entertaining when it doesn't mean to be.‐ The List

4/5 71% Pink Wall (2019) While their roles embrace cliche, the two leads coax out nuance, with Duplass just managing to earn sympathy, and Maslany... continuing to illustrate the stunning breadth of her emotional range.‐ The List

3/5 73% Harriet (2019) Ultimately, this feels like only a surface-level exploration of an incredible figure - one who surely deserves further filmic attention - but it will rightly ensure that Tubman's story is now more widely known.‐ The List

4/5 77% Judy & Punch (2020) Most striking is writer-director Foulkes' clarity of vision and mastery of tonal balance; impressively, this is her first feature film.‐ The List

4/5 88% American Woman (2019) Miller makes naturalistic choices in her physical performance, and knows when to deploy a whisper instead of a shout.‐ The List

3/5 82% The Report (2019) A fact-focused retelling that's intellectually interesting and thrilling in its condemnation, yet devoid of tension, drama, and emotion.‐ The List

1/5 14% Night Hunter (Nomis) (2019) Whatever whiff of genius may have been present on the page to have attracted such a recognisable cast is entirely missing from first-time writer-director David Raymond's execution.‐ The List

5/5 99% For Sama (2019) This is urgent filmmaking at its very finest.‐ The List

3/5 73% The Shiny Shrimps (Les Crevettes Pailletées) (2019) The queer camaraderie and joie de vivre are infectious, elevating what is otherwise a predictable, conventional comedy with a hopelessly muddled message.‐ The List

55% J.T. LeRoy (2019) Beyond the excellent central performances, the film never delves satisfyingly enough into ideas of identity, authenticity, or the therapeutic power of writing.‐ The List

2/5 41% Vita & Virginia (2019) The film lurches from one stage in their relationship to another, and the result is a strangely detached, uneven tone.‐ The List

4/5 81% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2019) A campy, colourful slasher set in the gay porn industry of late 1970s Paris, Knife+Heart is almost as fun to describe as it is to watch.‐ The List

2/5 68% Stockholm (2019) Ultimately, such intriguing subject matter deserves more depth and less drag.‐ The List

4/5 71% Pond Life (2018) Buckhurst's assured evocation of time and place result in something delightful: a film it seems impossible to not be charmed by.‐ The List
