Bastards

Bastards
  • 2013

  • 18
  • Directed by: Claire Denis
  • Written by: Claire Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau
  • Cast: Vincent Lindon, Chiara Mastroianni, Michel Sabor, Lola Creton

Marco (Lindon) is a seaman who comes ashore to unravel his family's messy involvement with a sexually depraved tycoon (Subor), only to embark on an affair with the man's partner (Mastroianni). Despite committed performances and moments of visual beauty, the enigmatic approach and chopped-up narrative make for a confusing and empty effect.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

  • Cast: Margaret Mulubwa, Gloria Huwiler, Ritah Mubanga, Dyna Mufuni

Nine-year-old Shula (Mulubwa) is accused of being a witch, and the authorities in Lusaka place her in a witch camp. Mulubwa is a compelling presence as the sullen, inscrutable Shula, but more clarity in explaining what ultimately happens to her might have made it more accessible.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ritesh Batra
  • Cast: Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer

Tony Webster (Broadbent) is a grumpy old git who’s on good terms with his ex wife (Walter); when he’s bequeathed the diary of an old friend, he is prompted to relive his schooldays. This adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel feels hokey and safe, although it has a nice cast and the scenes between Broadbent and Walter are among the few highlights.

Zoology

Zoology
  • 2016
  • Russia/France/Germany
  • 1h 23min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ivan I. Tverdovskiy
  • Written by: Ivan I. Tverdovskiy
  • Cast: Masha Tokareva, Natalya Pavlenkova, Aleksandr Gorchilin

Natasha (Pavlenkova) is a middle-aged procurement manager in a Russian zoo who has a grey and drab life until she starts to grow a tail. Her new appendage brings her to life, but her individuality comes with a price. Pavlenkova’s rich, emotional performance gives emotion and involvement to Tverdovsky’s bone-dry social satire and affinity with the outsider.
