BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

The Children Act
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Richard Eyre
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead

Fiona (Thompson) is a High Court judge who finds herself becoming involved with a Jehovah’s Witness teenager (Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion for his leukaemia. Heavy-handed adaptation by McEwan of his own novel; not entirely convincing but Eyre brings out fine performances.

The Eyes of Orson Welles

The Eyes of Orson Welles
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Cousins
  • Cast: Mark Cousins

Unconventional film essay that looks at the life and work of one of the greatest filmmakers through the prism of his drawings and paintings. Cousins comes across at times as self-satisfied, but he really knows his subject and the result is rich, rewarding and original.

The Guardians (Les gardiennes)

The Guardians (Les gardiennes)
  • 2017
  • Switzerland/France
  • 2h 18min
  • Directed by: Xavier Beauvois
  • Cast: Nathalie Baye, Laura Smet, Iris Bry

In rural France in 1915, Francine (Bry) falls for Georges (Descours), the soldier son of her employer, stoic matriarch Hortense (Baye). Subtle and languorously-paced story of WWI, which captures the emotional intensity of conflict and how it changes all those it touches.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  • 1989
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Alison Doody, Denholm Elliott, Julian Glover, River Phoenix, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Connery

The third instalment of Spielberg's blockbuster series, in which the archaeological adventurer is joined by his father (Connery) for a romp through the Middle East in search of the Holy Grail, hotly pursued (as ever) by the Nazis. A rather dodgy quasi-Christian morality and a more-of-the-same-ish plot are offset by strong performances from Ford and Connery and technical bravura.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Cast: Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, John McIntire, Janet Leigh

Hitch's misogynistic masterpiece has a young secretary take off to hicksville with a bagful of her boss' money. Unfortunately for her, she chooses to put up at the Bates' Motel, run by that nice Norman boy. The ironic dialogue ('Mother's not quite herself today') make it a joy to catch any time around. We liked it, didn't we mother … mother?

Tracking Edith

  • 2016
  • Austria/Germany/Russia
  • 1h 31min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Stephan Jungk

While living a double life as a spy for the KGB, Edith Tudor-Hart recruited Kim Philby and helped create the Cambridge Five, the Soviet Union’s most successful spy ring in the UK, which infiltrated the very top of British intelligence (the inspiration for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). The film recounts her remarkable life, told through her photographs and animated re-enactments.

As Peter Stephan Jungk learns more about his aunt and her work, his film demands the question: why is she not recognised alongside Kim Philby and the Cambridge Five as one of the spies that changed the world?

  • 2014

When asthmatic 12 year old Anna suffers panic attacks and finds it hard to make friends, her parents send her to her aunt and uncle in the country for the summer, where she finds a new friend in (possibly imagianary) Marnie. Proof that Studio Ghibli has life beyond Miyazaki; a beguiling, delicately executed, almost Hitchcockian tale about complex emotional issues.

The Women

The Women
  • 1939
  • US
  • 2h 13min
  • U
  • Directed by: George Cukor
  • Cast: Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell

Wealthy Mary Haines (Shearer) is unaware that her husband is having an affair with shopgirl Crystal (Crawford). But when Sylvia Fowler (Russell) and Edith Potter (Povah) discover what he's up to they arrange for Mary to hear the gossip. So begins this wonderful, multilayered, classic cat fight of a movie. Possibly the greatest bitch slap fest American cinema ever produced!
