Four drinking buddies test the theory that a steady blood-alcohol level is the key to peak human performance. (Here, the few encounters with men tend to the fleeting and show them broadly as irritating hurdles for the female protagonists to surmount.) “This is reinforced rather than offset by Marcello’s signature use of archival footage.

It comprises a string of vignettes, almost all playing out in a single take, viewed by a locked-down camera with a static frame that holds its human subjects in the philosophical distance of a deep-focus long shot. So far, so western as the village increasingly comes under siege: it bizarrely disappears off the map, mobile signal disappears and corpses pile up. The very existence of this film – the product of the suburb, of racial and social solidarity – is something to be celebrated: a flower sprung from concrete. The brothers have long embraced the elasticity of the form; the ‘realness’ of their second film Tchoupitoulas was questioned in various corners, and their third documentary Western was a genre film with all the constructedness that implies. It also does not include films screened in previous years that had official release dates in 2020.

The film was at least partially shot in the United Kingdom. Yet, while writer-director Kitty Green’s sensitively made yet hard-hitting feature debut plays out in a dark, cold world full of secrets, lies and isolation, hers is no nightmarish fantasy landscape. It has malevolent monsters and horrified victims, and hums with a palpable sense of threat. The opening salvo, featuring archive footage from America and Vietnam from the late 60s and 70s, including speeches by Muhammad Ali, Kwame Ture and Angela Davis, feels like it could be for a Black Lives Matter rally. A house party thrown by young Black Britons in London in the early 1980s becomes a haven in the rapturous, sublime second film in Steve McQueen’s landmark five-film Small Axe collection. It is also a deeply moving prayer of admiration for girls – the wary, watchful ones who have learned to expect nothing of anybody except one another, from whom they expect, and regularly receive, the world.” (Jessica Kiang), Read our review: Never Rarely Sometimes Always: Eliza Hittman’s abortion tale traces the burdens of girlhood, Where to see it: On DVD, Blu-ray and streaming platforms.

We said: “Da 5 Bloods fires shots at American revisionism of the Vietnam War through the viewfinder of African-American soldiers. 29th December 2020. From the outset, this manages to inhabit both a Ken Loach-type drab urban space and an insidious netherworld. A young woman named Autumn (Sidney Flanigan) travels to New York to terminate her pregnancy, in Hittman’s sensitive drama, which both exposes the inhumanity of the US healthcare system and offers a paean to female solidarity. The film stars his regular muse and partner, Kim Minhee, as the apparently happily married Kim catching up, in turn, with three old female acquaintances over several days when her husband heads off on a business trip – her first time alone for several years.

We say: “The pandemic may have delayed the release of mega-bucks sci-fi extravaganzas like Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, but Andrew Patterson’s film was an exhilarating discovery for dark lockdown times and further proof, if you ever needed it, that a small budget (less than $1 million) is no barrier to the sublime.

I realised that this show, like that one, is not simply us performing a series of songs, ending with our biggest hit. A radio operator and a presenter discover a menacing sound on the airwaves in this scintillating retro UFO tale. The storyline is textbook 1950s B movie, but the film’s innovative sound design and tracking shots, along with the director’s dynamite blend of anxiety and awe, take it far beyond pastiche.” (Isabel Stevens). But myth it is. Loss is reconfigured cleverly as a gain, and two queer women are not so much swindled as left with the blessing of a blank slate, freed from the blueprints for family life that have held them back so far.” (Ryan Gilbey), Read our review: Kajillionaire: Miranda July pulls off a salty family con drama.

Our annual poll of the year’s top movies – at cinemas, festivals or online – as chosen by over 100 of our contributors from around the world. We said: “In steady, sparing takes that often rest on Flanigan’s face – vivid despite its expressionlessness – the story unfolds with procedural curiosity. This stylistically dazzling adaptation of Jack London’s autobiographical novel – about a working-class writer who climbs the ranks of society – transposes the story from the US to Naples and mixes drama with archive footage to create a unique fable. We said: “Adding an entirely unexpected new register to the filmography of an already dazzlingly eclectic filmmaker, Larraín’s Ema is about as lovable as a genius-level sudoku puzzle, but in it, the cinema of what-the-hell-did-I-justwatch uncategorisability has a new title for its pantheon. The omission of her experience of motherhood renders this version of Jackson the ‘witch’ she jokes about being, irrationally angry at abstract forces, rather than understandably burned out from tending offspring, husband and career.” (Hannah McGill), Read our review: Shirley doesn’t wholly come together as it picks Shirley Jackson apart. The initial impression that the film takes place, like the novel, towards the start of the last century is contradicted through subtle anachronisms. Rather, she is a catalyst, her strangeness stirring others into anger or action. There simply are no women – no people – like Ema.

(Kieron Corless), Where to see it: Not currently available in the UK, but available to stream on Vimeo-on-Demand in some territories. I thought, “This isn’t going to cost a lot; maybe somebody will be willing to take a chance.” I haven’t reread the book since I made the movie, but I did change a lot, and I definitely changed the character of the young woman a lot – I wanted something more for an actress to play but I also wanted to give her agency, so that it felt more about things that happen in an actual relationship, rather than the thing that the book is.”, When Romney asked Kaufman what place he felt he had in the world today, Kaufman replied in characteristic fashion: “I don’t feel secure at all. I don’t know how anyone could feel secure in the world as it is right now.

As in his earlier experiments in hybrid storytelling, short clips interspersed throughout serve as lyrical counterpoints to the narrative. We said: “Some moments echo the confrontational, direct to camera stares of Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight (2016) and If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) it’s focused purely on the dynamics of Zed’s family and friends, the cast mostly populated by British-Pakistani actors. To take you on that journey where it gets to a point where it transcends, even beyond the people in the room. It centres on a man who inherits his grandmother’s house and turns it into a Black socialist collective.

Many of the film's cast and crew members are British. What is left is a cautionary tale about the corrupting power of wealth and success. Berlin, a city that emerged from a swamp, has embarked on this quest again and again. Weekes stages a number of stunning moments – a pull-back from Bol sat at an unfamiliar table to show a chunk of the wall of his house floating in a remembered night-sea; and repeated manifestations by the formidable night witch and the skull-masked spectre of the lost girl. ... Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. Stanley’s superficial charm and shameless self-interest is depicted with particular insight, and beautifully played by Michael Stuhlbarg. ‘For me, as a younger filmmaker, that’s one of the things I can’t compromise on now,’ she says. “The savvy decision to allow the actors to play their younger selves in flashback sequences reinforces the film’s central thesis that past and present are intertwined. As Fox and her sons persevere through limbo narrating their lives to Rob in the home videos, visiting courts, receiving reverse-charge calls, and going about their jobs in Bradley’s footage – we also see them grow and change.
