Our take

Recalibrating the end of the world as an apocalypse of identity, In My Room is a profound spin on “Robinson Crusoe” from Berlin School director Ulrich Köhler. With welcome appearances from both Pet Shops Boys and Clint Eastwood, this wry gem is an ingenious portrait of a bourgeois life in ruins.
