- Counterpart, Season 1 (Justin Marks 2018) 20 June 2018A spy movie with a touch of sliding-doors sci fi, and avuncular J K Simmons in the double lead role.
- Younger Season 5 (Darren Star 2018) 18 June 2018What can I say? We were watching this before it because a cult, and now we're watching it again.
- SFF: Instructions on Parting (Amhy K Jenkins 2018) 17 June 2018If I understood the intentions of the title I would probably have a higher opinion of this film. There's a lot in it that's beautiful, and it covers some deeply sad events in a family's life, but too much of it feels like a very high quality home movie.
- SFF: The Guilty (Gustav Möller 2018) 17 June 2018A terrific Danish policier that, like Steven Knight's Locke, has one man on the phone. It has all the power of a first-class radio play, and Jakob Cedergren is mesmerising as the policeman in the emergency call centre.
