Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 No Score Yet The Trouble with Naipaul (2019) Academic Dr Shahidha Bari assembles the case for the prosecution but also mounts a nuanced defence of a troubled man who always felt at odds with the world.‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet Hamlet (2018) Particularly well thought through in its detail, Robert Icke's production never feels gimmicky. And [Andrew] Scott's a revelation.‐ Financial Times

4/5 No Score Yet Climategate: Science of a Scandal (2019) There's an extraordinary coda to this tale, almost a happy ending. For the vindication of science, that is, not for the planet.‐ Financial Times

4/5 No Score Yet Unremembered: Britain's Forgotten War Heroes (2019) Shocking as the story is, [David] Lammy's cries of "Poor guy!" and "Ah, God!" can seem stagy... His passionate anger is, however, entirely justified.‐ Financial Times

4/5 77% Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist (2018) Fashion, for all its seeming frivolity, is a grimly serious business. [Vivienne] Westwood showed an endearing grace, sowing the seeds of future national treasure status.‐ Financial Times

3/5 No Score Yet How to Be: Mark Ronson (2019) There's not much more to add from watching Carl Hindmarch's documentary, in terms of personal revelations. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet Warrior Women with Lupita Nyong'o (2019) Lupita Nyong'o is an apt choice of investigator as she travels to the Republic of Benin... Far from flaunting her star status, she puts many a self-regarding TV historian to shame with her unaffected charm and candour.‐ Financial Times

4/5 No Score Yet Ian Hislop's Fake News: A True Story (2019) As the perma-smug Ian Hislop demonstrates, fake news is not a modern phenomenon tied to social media. However uncomfortable the thought, it's almost part of the DNA of the tabloid media...‐ Financial Times

3/5 No Score Yet Quadrophenia: Our Generation (2019) Distance lends enchantment and so forth, and the warmth displayed by its original cast and crew members as they reminisce is enough to burn away cynicism. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet The $50 Million Art Swindle (2019) There are many theories about the fate of art dealer-turned-felon Michel Cohen. Film-maker Vanessa Engle has managed to run him to ground... but in many ways he's the least interesting interviewee and his story is best told by others.‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet Inside Cadbury: Chocolate Secrets Unwrapped (2019) This is a showcase of absolutely brilliant jobs.‐ Financial Times

4/5 84% Untouchable (2019) Ursula Macfarlane's sombre film is largely composed of lengthy interviews, many of them gruelling, interspersed with archive stills and a bare minimum of film clips. ‐ Financial Times

4/5 97% American Factory (2019) In the end it becomes clear that one side will conquer in a battle between two extremes, and merely putting up a sign saying "Marching Forward to be World Leading Automotive Glass Provider" won't fix rumbles of dissent. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet When Bridges Collapse: The Genoa Disaster (2019) When Bridges Collapse asks sobering questions about the structures we thunder over without a second thought.‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet A Fresh Guide to Florence with Fab 5 Freddy (2019) Fred Brathwaite, aka Fab 5 Freddy, insouciantly blows the dust off art history. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet How the Middle Classes Ruined Britain (2019) Tthe programme could be seen as the BBC's feeble bid to prove that it's not saturated with well-meaning, left-leaning arty types. Yet [Geoff] Norcott is more questioning than belligerent as he goes about proving his thesis. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet Undercover: Inside China's Digital Gulag (2019) Li's bravery in bringing us this story is off the scale.‐ Financial Times
Read More | Posted Jul 18, 2019
5/5 50% Inside the Social Network: Facebook's Difficult Year (2019) [Mark Zuckerberg] problems of scale are daunting. It would be easy to chuckle at his plight, except that this behemoth implicates us too. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet Anna: The Woman Who Went to Fight ISIS (2019) Meeting the warm-hearted Kurdish people and roaming a cemetery with thousands of war graves allows Dirk [Campbell] to put his daughter's death into a wider perspective. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet The Unwanted: The Secret Windrush Files (2019) The programme has a bittersweet finale as some of the interviewees gain the citizenship they didn't know they lacked. Their resilience is admirable; it's a tragedy it needed testing.‐ Financial Times

4/5 No Score Yet Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl (2018) While not quite as saddening as the recent Avicii documentary, Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl is another indictment of the music business and its tendency to chew up young talent. ‐ Financial Times

3/5 No Score Yet D-Day: The King Who Fooled Hitler (2019) Much is made of comparatively little here, but to make up for that there's fascinating wartime footage and the involvement of those guaranteed interest-piquers, double agents Garbo and Brutus.‐ Financial Times

4/5 100% Knock Down the House (2019) It's refreshing to see how polite the Democrat political discourse is, in contrast to the deliberate boorishness of Trump. ‐ Financial Times

3/5 No Score Yet Jill Dando: The 20 Year Mystery (2019) The programme is cleverly constructed in that it presents the various scenarios, making each seem utterly convincing, before poking away at inconsistencies. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 83% Avicii: True Stories (2017) With the goddesses Amy [Winehouse] and Whitney [Houston], we watched, appalled, from a distance; but with Tim Bergling, it feels as though the world lost a friend.‐ Financial Times

5/5 100% Climate Change - The Facts (2019) The BBC documentary is a sobering, uncompromising portrait of the effects of global warming on our world. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 No Score Yet Woody Guthrie: Three Chords and The Truth (2019) If there's anything the documentary Woody Guthrie: Three Chords and The Truth brings to mind it's the cyclical nature of politics.‐ Financial Times

4/5 No Score Yet Unstoppable: Sean Scully and the Art of Everything (2019) The programme takes Scully far too much at his own and his dealers' estimation, so thank goodness for art critic William Feaver, who sees too much bombast and self-vaunting behind the stripes. ‐ Financial Times

5/5 77% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) Whether Holmes was even an inventor is one question thrown up by the documentary.‐ Financial Times

3/5 50% Sleeping With the Far Right (2019) It's a well-meaning but ultimately depressing programme fronted by a presenter who seems ill-equipped to counter the murkiness she uncovers. ‐ Financial Times

4/5 No Score Yet Torvill & Dean (2018) Gillies Mackinnon's film gives the impression of keeping closely to the true story, while tweaking a scene or character here and there for effect.‐ Financial Times

5/5 100% David Bowie: Finding Fame (2019) Finding Fame is the third film in Francis Whately's Bowie trilogy, after David Bowie: Five Years and David Bowie: The Last Five Years and is by far the most intriguing.‐ Financial Times

3/5 52% Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) While the sententious script is at best serviceable, dark knots at the heart of the story are well worth grappling with.‐ Financial Times

5/5 100% The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead (2015) Wes Orshoski's punkumentary The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead makes a good stab (key Damned word) at imposing a linear narrative, but their story is just too messed up.‐ Financial Times

4/5 81% What We Started (2018) The documentary follows Cox's winding down and Garrix's rise, along with an entertaining, if familiar, history of electronic dance music.‐ Financial Times
