  1. Four Lives [2022 TV Limited Series] A true story three part drama takes a look at the aftermath of four murders carried out by Stephen Port between 2014 and 2015 in Barking, UK. Only recently released after the court cases concluded. A reasonable crime drama, highlights poor police work and the disturbing character of a serial killer played interestingly by a lead more familiar with comedic roles.
  2. Boiling Point [2021] Follows the relentless pressure of a restaurant kitchen as a head chef wrangles his team on the busiest day of the year. Entertaining and tense drama shot in a single take from one camera following various customers and staff around the establishment.
  3. The Lost Daughter [2021] A woman's beach vacation takes a dark turn when she becomes obsessed with a young mother causing her to confront the troubles of her past. An absorbingly well-acted psychodrama on bad parenting.
  4. A Very British Scandal [2021 TV Limited Series] Based on the true story of events of the notorious divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll during the 1960s played to perfection by two actors at the top of their game in a deliciously dark period drama.
  5. Belfast [2021] A young boy and his working-class Belfast family experience the tumultuous late 1960s. A mostly feel good indulgent homage to the directors own life growing up in the troubles as seen by a young kid, that makes for an entertaining drama with the entire musical score done by Van Morrison.
  6. C'mon C'mon [2021] When his sister asks him to look after her young son, a radio journalist embarks on a cross-country trip with his energetic nephew to show him life away from Los Angeles. A remarkably likeable drama with plenty of talking and listening going on, shot in black and white with extraordinary performances. Well worth seeing when the mood suits.
  7. Landscapers [2021 TV Limited Series] A devoted and mild-mannered British couple become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when two dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in England. Based on a true and bizarre event, the story is directed skillfully in an original black and theatrical comedic style using two top actors making for an intriguing series.
  8. The French Dispatch [2021] An ode to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century French city that brings to life a collection of three stories published in "The French Dispatch Magazine". A trademark Wes Anderson film, quirky, original, a visual feast worth seeing.
  9. Encounter [2021] Two brothers embark on a journey with their father, who is trying to protect them from an alien threat. A showcase for a good lead performance, but the story of science fiction meets PTSD fact runs out of steam quickly.
  10. Titane [2021] Following a series of unexplained crimes, a father is reunited with the 'son' who has been missing for 10 years. Award winning French horror fantasy film from the same director as Raw, highly original, visually extreme and gut wrenchingly graphic at times. Memorable, something you cannot unsee, but worth seeing.
  11. Petite Maman [2021] French movie of a young girl who has just lost her grandmother and is helping her parents clean out her mother's childhood home. One day she meets a girl her same age building a tree-house. A subtle, original and joyful film dabbles in time travel and apparitions, all told in a succinctly edited movie.
  12. The Power Of The Dog [2021] A charismatic rancher inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife and her son, he torments them until he finds himself exposed. A slow burning masterpiece of a movie, brilliant passive aggressive lead and wonderfully immersive sound scape. Worth seeing.
