Film Fight 2020: August

A little quieter than recent months, but still 7 new films.


The Vast of Night

Project Power

Days of the Bagnold Summer

An American Pickle

Never Rarely Sometimes Always


The August Winner

The winner for August is Never Rarely Sometimes Always, a difficult but important watch, that’s well put together.

Film Fight 2020: July

A fairly respectable month, with 10 films in July.

Family Romance, LLC

Wasp Network


The Old Guard

Palm Springs

The Assistant

Nobody Knows I’m Here



The Night Clerk

The July Winner

Tough to pick between the three films that stood out, but I think it has to be The Assistant. Fantastic but understated performances that show us how we become complicit in things with which we disagree.

Film Fight 2020: June

A slightly quieter month than last, but still 8 new films!

The Orphanage

The Wrong Missy

Da 5 Bloods

The Banker

Krabi, 2562

The Last Days of American Crime

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

The Ghost Who Walks

The June Winner

Lots of decidedly mediocre films, a couple of decent ones, but the winner is worth seeing: The Orphanage takes it.

Film Fight 2020: May

Turns out staying in and making healthy allowances to release dates (due to ongoing circumstances) really ups the numbers on Film Fight, with 12 films in for May.

The Decline

All Day And A Night

The Plagues of Breslau



Sea Fever


Selah And The Spades

The Lovebirds


Earth and Blood


The May Winner

At least 3 or 4 films worth seeing, but I think the winner is Uncorked for being more than solid at every level.

Film Fight 2020: April

Despite cinemas being shut for the whole of April, I found a pretty good seam of new releases (giving myself a little more leeway with the film fight rules here). There are 12 films in the April Film Fight.

The Platform

The Occupant


Lost Girls

The Jesus Rolls

System Crasher

Code 8

Coffee And Kareem



Rising High


The April Winner

Given the sheer number of films, pretty much the entire gamut of good to excellent are here so picking a winner is tough. That said, it has to be System Crasher: a powerful, difficult look at trauma in children and the effects.
