    Sleeping in Plastic

    ★★★

    That’s not to say that All Roads to Pearla is perfect. A sub-plot involving the wrestling coach feels incidental, it does tie certain events in the film together but only late into the third act where it doesn’t really matter in the face of Brandon and Pearla’s plight. Without revealing the plot, the characters who are hellbent on revenge for the beating of Cowboy Loy are very shallow, again introduced late into the film with a whole backstory that is…

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★½

    The Devil All the Time is certainly a standout this year thanks to Netflix and the platform’s uncanny but remarkable ability to acquire quality content and much-loved stars. A sombre critique on the horrors of blind faith, sinners run rampant in Pollock’s little slice of southern hell, and this is definitely a story that will stay with you, seeing as ghosts — fictional, or not, are not easily dispelled no matter what form they appear.

    ★★★★★

    Less is more in this case. The less you know going in, the more you’ll get from I’m Thinking of Ending Things. Avoid spoilers at all costs, it will only add to one of the most fulfilling cinematic experiences of 2020. It’s rare that a movie can floor you in the way that this one does but it presents a masterstroke in what is possible from streaming services now. I’m Thinking of Ending Things is flat out one of the best films that this year has to offer — pandemic or not.

    Palm Springs

    ★★★★

    Maybe it’s due to the crushing reality of everything else going on in the world, but the presence of a film like Palm Springs in the rather bleak offering of current releases feels particularly affecting right now. It has a sense of optimism that isn’t suffocating, a take on romance that acknowledges the darker side of human nature without sliding even closely into melodrama. An overdose of hopefulness during “these uncertain times” just becomes dishonest, whereas art that both recognises…
