The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven year old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Burden

Burden
  • 2016
  • US
  • 88 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Marrinan, Richard Dewey
  • Cast: Chris Burden, Marina Abramovic, Vito Acconci

Documentary about artist Chris Burden, whose works involved (among other things) getting shot in the arm with a rifle. Burden died during the making of the film and it’s a careful and respectful account that draws on his own rich documentary archive to display his work’s sheer visual power.

Don't Look Now

Don't Look Now
  • 1973
  • UK
  • 103 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Nicolas Roeg
  • Cast: Julie Christie, Donald Sutherland

Restoration expert with second sight visits Venice, where he meets up with two old sisters who claim spiritual communication with his recently drowned daughter. Against a Mann-like backdrop of unexplained deaths, he becomes obsessed with a tiny, red-coated figure he spies scurrying through the city's dark alleys. Splendid supernatural suspense movie, as subtly textured and brilliantly edited as any of Roeg's work, with the added advantage that it's a rather good yarn.

The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden
  • 2016
  • Korea
  • 144 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger
  • 2016
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, Tilda Swinton
  • Cast: John Berger, Tilda Swinton,

Wonderful documentary comprising four essay-films about the writer John Berger, in which Swinton and fellow film-makers hang out with him and discuss what it calls his ‘radical, democratic humanism’. Each film is stand-alone but they form a lovely mosaic, being not just about Berger but also about how others respond to him.

The Shepherd
  • 2016
  • Spain/UK
  • 97 min
  • Directed by: Jonathan Cenzual Burley
  • Cast: Miguel Martin, Alfonso Mendiguchia, Juan Luis Sara, Maribel Iglesias.

Anselmo (Martin) is a modest 55-year-old shepherd who is content with his bare-bones life, until a couple of property developers try to buy his land. Things then snowball. Writer/director Burley skilfully sets a slow pace and the performances are exquisitely judged.

Wilson

Wilson
  • 2017
  • US
  • 94 min
  • Directed by: Craig Johnson
  • Cast: Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Isabella Amara

Wilson (Harrelson) meets his teenage daughter for the first time, in this comedy drama based on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. Wilson's occasional charm just about outweighs the unpleasant aspects of his character but as the story develops the black humour drains away.
