Dogtooth

Dogtooth
  • 2009
  • Greece
  • 1h 37min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos
  • Written by: Yorgos Lanthimos, Efthymis Filippou
  • Cast: Christos Stergioglou, Michelle Valley, Aggeliki Papoulia, Mary Tsoni, Christos Passalis

A dark fairytale for contemporary times, Dogtooth tells the story of three grown up children who have been brought up without venturing beyond the tall fence that surrounds their house. Lanthimos explores the logic and boundaries of what we deem to be right or wrong, in a situation where social norms have been removed or subverted - a deeply memorable, stylish, anarchic but assured piece of filmmaking.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

Final Portrait

Final Portrait
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stanley Tucci
  • Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy

American writer James Lord (Hammer) poses for a portrait by legendary painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti (Rush), but regrets it as the deadline is extended beyond absurdity. Delightfully playful examination of the artist-subject relationship, and both Rush and Hammer are perfectly cast as the curmudgeonly master and his impeccably polite sitter.

A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Sonia Acevedo, Casey Affleck, Carlos Bermudez

C (Affleck) and M (Mara) are a couple; when C is killed in a car crash, he returns as a ghost to make contact with M. Lowery manages to reanimate the corny old trope of the ghost under a bedsheet, creating a story about grief and a captivating reflection on the enormity of mankind’s existence.

Hotel Salvation
  • 2016
  • India

Napping Princess

Napping Princess
  • 2017
  • Japan
  • 1h 51min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Kenji Kamiyama
  • Cast: Mitsuki Takahata, Shinnosuke Mitsuhima

When schoolgirl Kokone (Takahata) falls asleep, she assumes the identity of princess Enshen in a futuristic heartland where cars are an essential commodity. Bolder and brainier than its title suggests, this striking anime is an enjoyable adventure and a thoughtful allegory about the importance of following your dreams.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
  • 2016
  • France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Jérôme Salle
  • Cast: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou

Biopic of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau (Wilson), focusing on his strained relationship with his son. It looks fantastic, but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic cliché, with characters such as Cousteau’s long-suffering wife Simone (Tautou) pushed to the sidelines.

Philadelphia

  • 1993
  • 2h
  • 12
  • Directed by: Jonathan Demme
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Antonio Banderas

When Andrew Beckett (Hanks) is fired from his law firm, he immediately suspects that it's because he has AIDS and he tries to persuade homophobioc lawyer Joe Miller (Washington) to take the case. Moderately daring for its time, it now seems like a window into a different era.

Rachel Getting Married

Rachel Getting Married
  • 2009
  • US
  • 1h 52min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jonathan Demme
  • Written by: Jenny Lumet
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Rosemarie DeWitt, Bill Irwin, Anna Deavere Smith, Tunde Adebimpe, Debra Winger

Black-sheep Kym (Hathaway) is withdrawn from rehab to attend the wedding of her goody-two-shoes sister Rachel (De Witt). Tensions run high, with Kym's family giving her the cold shoulder over past misdeeds and an explosive secret is brought to the surface. A strong character study of a difficult but sympathetic heroine.

Rock Dog

Rock Dog
  • 2017
  • 1h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ash Brannon
  • Written by: Ash Brannon, Kurt Voelker
  • Cast: Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, J.K. Simmons

Bodi (Wilson) is a guard dog who takes up rock music, inspired by British pop star Angus Scattergood (Izzard). Weird and not very wonderful kids’ animation with weak jokes and few recognisable songs; it has a professional sheen but the script is a dog’s dinner.

A Silent Voice

A Silent Voice
  • 2016
  • Japan
  • 2h 10min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Naoko Yamada
  • Cast: Miyu Irino, Saori Hayami, Megumi Han

Shōko (Hayami) is a deaf girl who moves to a new primary school, where she is relentlessly bullied by Shōya (Irino); five years later, Shōya is a depressed and ostracised teenager who reaches out to Shōko in search of friendship and redemption. A gentle and intimate drama about emotional turmoil, with a moving and hard-earned climax.

The Square

  • 2017
  • Sweden / Germany / France / Denmark
  • 2h 22min
  • Directed by: Ruben Östlund
  • Cast: Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West,

Christian (Bang), the curator of a modern art museum, is scammed and robbed of his wallet, phone and cufflinks, and as a result tracks his phone and leaves threatening letters where he thinks it might be. At its best it mixes sly, Swiftian satire with an almost Ballardian view of human nature, but it’s sprawling and overstuffed.

Three Colours: Red

Kieslowski's tricolour trilogy comes to a close with what may be his greatest masterpiece. A Swiss model (Jacob) discovers that a retired judge (Trintignant) is listening in to his neighbours' phone conversations, but instead of denouncing him, she too opens up her innermost secrets. Superficial details are stripped away as the director concentrates on parallel lives and interwoven destinies.
