All is by My Side

Jimi: All is by My Side
  • 2 stars
  • 2013
  • UK/Ireland
  • 116 min
  • Directed by: John Ridley
  • Cast: André Benjamin Hayley Atwell, Burn Gorman

In 1966, Jimi Hendrix (Benjamin), struggling backup musician, explodes onto the London rock scene. Benjamin immerses himself in the title role and deserved a better film. With the Hendrix estate denying the use of his music, excessive camera trickery and a too-old cast, it may be groovy purple bell bottoms, but it's still pants.

  • Directed by: James Ward Byrkit
  • Written by: James Ward Byrkit
  • Cast: Emily Baldoni, Maury Sterling, Nicholas Brendon

A group of old friends gather for dinner … gather for dinner … gather for dinner …

A dinner party is disrupted by a power failure. Initially attributing it to unusual occurrences caused by a comet passing close to Earth, the guests eventually realise that something is terribly wrong. As the real problem becomes apparent, the psychological horror of their situation reaches terrifying heights. Skilfully handled by director James Ward Byrkit, this low-key sci-fi chiller slowly unfolds into an existential nightmare of gigantic proportions.

The Fisher King

The Fisher King
  • 1991
  • US
  • 137 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Terry Gilliam
  • Written by: Richard LaGravenese
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, Robin Williams

A suicidal former radio DJ (Bridges) and a drop-out former professor of medieval history go in search of the Holy Grail in contemporary New York. The visual splendour of Gilliam's previous movies - 'Time Bandits2 and 'Baron Munchausen2 - is more restrained here, but the blend of myth, satire and romance is strong. Unfortunately, the wonderful central performances by Williams and Bridges are let down by a cop-out, up-beat ending.

  • 2014
  • New Zealand
  • 109 min
  • Directed by: Gerard Johnstone
  • Written by: Gerard Johnstone
  • Cast: Morgana O'Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glen-Paul Waru

When Kylie (O'Reilly) is placed under house arrest for a botched robbery, at first she's just annoyed at being stuck with mum (Te Wiata), until supernatural things start to happen. Deliriously funny haunted house horror with wonderful performances, taut and intricate chase sequences, and a cheese grater to the face. Barmy, riotous and strangely touching.

Manuscripts Don't Burn

Manuscripts Don't Burn
  • 4 stars
  • 2013
  • Iran
  • 125 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mohammad Rasoulof

Iranian thriller based on real events; due to the incendiary subject matter, the cast and crew are uncredited. Although it could have done with a touch more ferocity to match its conviction, it's a severe and bravely critical film that those outside Iran need to see.

  • 2014
  • UK
  • 123 min

  • Directed by: Tom Green
  • Written by: Jay Basu
  • Cast: Johnny Harris, Sam Keeley, Joe Dempsie

Ten years after the events of 2010's Monsters, American soldiers are sent to the Middle East to control insurgent groups that have sprung up during the war against the aliens. A two-hour-plus, testosterone-fuelled barrage of guns, bombs and male posturing, with a story that exists merely to hold the explosions together, it's a massive disappointment.

  • 5 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 150 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson

Portrait of the last 25 years of the life of painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (Spall). A work of great beauty, wit and poignancy, presenting the artist as unapologetically gruff but sympathetic and spectacularly eccentric. Leigh's latest demonstrates a command of his craft to rival that of his subject.

Biopic of French author Violette Leduc (Devos), focusing on her relationship with Simone de Beauvoir (Kiberlain), who got Leduc's first novel published, connected her with French literary life and won her unrequited love. Clever and complex study of female friendship, with expert performances from Devos as the borderline hysterical Violette and Kiberlain as the steely and charismatic de Beauvoir.
