What happened Miss Simone? (2015)

Researching the life and legacy of Nina Simone, Liz Garbus reveals a deliberately provocative and highly political musical genius and wins an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary.

It is impossible not to be seduced by the emotion of her songs and the power of her character.

13th (2016)

Activist Angela Davis, author Jelani Cobb and civil rights activist Michelle Alexander are just some of the personalities who provide information on Ava DuVernay’s alarming report on systemic racism that is a reality in the US criminal justice system.

Extensive, detailed and riveting, it was -rightly- nominated for best documentary.

Roma (2018)

Perhaps the only time the streaming giant came so close to winning the Best Picture Award with Alfonso Couarón’s Roma.

It won three of the 10 awards it was nominated for, naming Netflix the most successful movie subscription platform.

The Edge of Democracy (2019)

With unbeatable aerial shots, impressive archival material and poetic narrative, Petra Costa’s operatic documentary chronicles the fall of two Brazilian presidents and the rise of populism.

From corruption investigations to taped calls, it is an urgent and extremely interesting option.

The Irishman (2019)

Surprisingly, the crime drama failed to win any awards, despite its 10 nominations: for the impeccable direction of Martin Scorsese, the admirable performances of Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and the impressive visual effects.

Marriage Story (2019)

Extremely well-written and infinitely memorable, Noah Baumbach’s moving account of a crisis relationship earned Laura Dern an Oscar and was nominated for five more categories.

The two Popes (2019)

A revealing depiction of a recent transfer of power: Fernando Meirelles’ closed drama, starring Antony Hopkins as Pope Benedict and Jonathan Pryce as his idealistic successor, Pope Francis, promises to keep you entertained.

Both were Oscar nominees, along with Anthony McCarten for his excellent screenplay.

The trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

Aaron Sorkin’s true story of a group of anti-war protesters is a rebellion against any tolerance of racist ideologies in the United States.

She was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture as well as for her melancholy cinematography, reactionary script, clever editing and starring Sacha Baron Cohen and Celeste’s moving “Hear My Voice”.

Ma Rainy’s Black Bottom (2020)

With the musical melodrama of George C. Wolfe, Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson became the first African American women to win the Academy Award for Makeup and Hair.

The film also won the award for best costume design, with Chadwick Boseman, Viola Davis and production designers also nominated.

Pieces of a Woman (2020)

Oscar nominee Vanessa Kirby plays a mother mourning the loss of her child, directed by Kornél Mundruczó.

The stunning 24-minute delivery scene – in which her anxious excitement gives way to confusion and horror – will make you shudder.
