The Age of Shadows

The Age of Shadows
  • 2016
  • South Korea
  • 140 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Written by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Cast: Byung-hun Lee, Yoo Gong, Kang-ho Song

Lee Jung-Chool (Song Kang-ho) is a Korean police officer serving as part of a Japanese mission to locate a consignment of explosives in 1920s Shanghai. A little research into the political tensions of the era is advisable, but it has a steely verve and baroque style that makes for compelling viewing.

Aquarius

Aquarius
  • 2016
  • Brasil
  • 142 min
  • Directed by: Kleber Mendonça Filho
  • Cast: Sonia Braga, Maeve Jinkings, Irandhir Santos

Clara (Braga) is a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic, the sole remaining resident of an apartment block by the sea, but a construction company wants to knock it down. Effective, slow-burn drama with a sensational performance from Braga. A rare, rounded, fiery portrair of a middle-aged woman.

The Eyes of My Mother

The Eyes of My Mother
  • 2016
  • US
  • 76 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nicolas Pesce
  • Cast: Kika Magalhaes, Will Brill, Olivia Bond

Francisca (Magalhaes) is a young woman with no sense of right or wrong, who develops a taste for killing people. An arthouse coming-of-age drama cloaked in the conventions of a slasher film, it’s an impressive slice of American gothic but too mannered, eccentric and slow to entirely win you over.

Free Fire

Free Fire
  • 2016
  • France, UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ben Wheatley
  • Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer

Boston, 1978: Chris (Murphy) is an IRA member looking to buy guns from Vern (Copley), with the help of go-betweens Justine (Larson) and Ord (Hammer): it soon descends into violence. Copley is very funny and there's some terrific dialogue, but Wheatley's latest sees him fumble the ball, with a threadbare plot that's merely an excuse for a movie-length shoot-out.

  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Chloë Grace Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer, and Jude Law

The Lost City of Z

The Lost City of Z
  • 2016
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson

The true story of the Amazonian expeditions of British army officer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), which inspired Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Despite good work from Hunnam, Miller as Percy’s plucky wife and Pattinson as his loyal sidekick, it’s a languorous and sometimes confusing story which sometimes becomes The Lost City of Zzzzz.

Mad To Be Normal

Mad To Be Normal
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 106 min
  • Directed by: Robert Mullan
  • Cast: David Tennant, Michael Gambon, Elisabeth Moss

Ronnie Laing (Tennant) is a chain-smoking, hard-drinking maverick psychiatrist presiding over an East London community treating psychosis with empathy and LSD. Mullan’s film plays too fast and loose with the details of Laing’s life, going for soap opera histrionics; Tennant’s manic energy is the only plus here.

  • 2016
  • Iran
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Taraneh Alidoosti, Shahab Hosseini, Babak Karimi

Rana (Alidoosti) and Emad (Hosseini) are forced to abandon their home, but when they stay in another flat, pressure grows on their relationship. Farhadi weaves themes of professional failure and paranoia into a compelling drama about lives at the mercy of malicious forces.
