Tis, to paraphrase King Lear, a trifle coming here, but the closure of cinemas has left superannuated film critics wandering the streets disconsolate. No films to review, then, and not too many on terrestrial TV either, but plenty to watch on the streaming services, which are - as we are all discovering - a godsend in lockdown.

After their strong showing in the awards season last year, Netflix has a string of quality movies to be caught up on, while Amazon Prime boasts its own awards contenders, and Now TV offers access to the Sky Cinema's extensive catalogue of new films and classics.

We've all got lots of time on our hands at the moment, so here's my selection of streamed movies to help while away the evenings.
