  • PG
  • Directed by: Damon Gameau

A documentary on scientific discoveries that can help to save mankind: the titular year is when director Gameau’s daughter will turn 25. Some of the discoveries are eye-opening and Gameau is a charming host. His is a positive voice that deserves to be heard.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Blade Runner
  • 2007 (1982)
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, Joe Turkel, Joanna Cassidy

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.

The Irishman

The Irishman
  • 2019
  • US
  • 3h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin

The story of mob enforcer and union official Frank Sheeran (De Niro) and his relationship with Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) and Mafia string-puller Russell Bufalino (Pesci). The de-aging technology is easy to forgive thanks to the masterly filmmaking, and although there’s no room for a complex female character it’s gripping, sombre and builds to a shattering conclusion.

Monkey Business

  • 1h 32min
  • PG

  • Written by: Ben Hecht, Charles Lederer, IAL Diamond
  • Cast: Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, Marilyn Monroe, Charles Coburn, Hugh Marlowe

More classic comedy from director Hawks, this time with Grant as an absent-minded professor who causes chaos when his elixir of youth gets mixed in with the contents of the office water cooler. Adult inhibitions are cast aside as he and his wife (Rogers) regress to childhood and rediscover adolescent lustiness.

Mystify: Michael Hutchence

Mystify: Michael Hutchence
  • 2019
  • Australia
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Lowenstein

A documentary about the INXS frontman, thoughtfully assembled from archive footage and suggesting that his death may have been related to mental health issues relating to a brain injury. Hutchence is a great subject and there’s plenty of fascinating footage providing a fresh context for understanding his troubled life.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström, Joe Johnston
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Misty Copeland, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman

Clara (Foy) is a science-minded teenager whose late mother leaves her a jewellery egg which needs a key, the search for which involves journeying into magical realms. A random hodge-podge of underpowered set pieces loosely inspired by ETA Hoffmann, with the supporting cast chewing the scenery and a lot of grandiose settings but not much story.

The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tyler Nilson/Michael Schwartz
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen

Zak (Gottsagen) has Down’s Syndrome and dreams of becoming a wrestler; one night he sneaks out, meets crab fisherman Tyler (LaBeouf) and they go on the lam. It may sound contrived, but the Tyler-Zak relationship is incredibly sweet, and a cast of indie movie royalty make for a cockle-warming delight.

The Report

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Scott Z. Burns
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Annette Bening, Jon Hamm

Daniel Jones (Driver), a former US Senate investigator, writes a report on the CIA’s torture programme which reveals that torture produces no actionable intelligence. A damning if flat indictment of CIA practices with some insulting creative decisions (such as gratuitous scenes of staged torture); full of facts, but devoid of tension, drama and emotion.
