100% 100 Vaginas (2019) It was much more broad and thought-provoking, one of those rare chances a man gets to listen to a bunch of women talk about being women without having to feel like a creep. - Times (UK) EDIT

81% Brexit (2019) Sometimes it was farcical and sometimes sincere, given that it was a drama and not a documentary. I truly haven't a bad thing to say about it at all. - Times (UK) EDIT

100% Bros: After the Screaming Stops (2018) Despite the breath-stopping absurdity and bewildered ego at every turn, and although the words are all madness and the songs are all terrible, this manages to be one of the most moving, uplifting and downright touching band portraits you will ever see. - Times (UK) EDIT

No Score Yet Click and Collect (2018) Their relationship was a little one-note, and the climatic scene with a claw-grabbing arcade machine was at least ten minutes too long, but as family-friendly silliness it didn't really put a foot wrong. - Times (UK) EDIT

100% They Shall Not Grow Old (2019) With no narration, just primary sources, but also with authenticity coming through the artifice of recreated image and sound, it was quite unlike anything else there has ever been. - Times (UK) EDIT

38% Queen of the World (2018) [Queen of the World] is unmitigated puffery and reverence with barely a second of grit, heart or spine. - Times (UK) EDIT

100% Killed By My Debt (2018) It turned out to be the best and bleakest dramatic portrait of modern Britain I've seen in years. - Times (UK) EDIT

43% Ricky Gervais: Humanity (2018) There 's something frankly undignified about somebody as successful as him effectively going on stage for an hour and a half to whine about the mean things people say to him on the internet, but when Humanity hits the mark it hits it hard. - Times (UK) EDIT
