American Honey

American Honey
  • 2016
  • UK, US
  • 2h 42min
  • Directed by: Andrea Arnold
  • Cast: Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough

When 18-year-old Star (Lane) meets Jake (LaBeouf, deliciously gross) and his crew of magazine sellers, all ruled over the straight-talking Krystal (Keough), she joins them on an epic road trip across America. A spine-tingling, uplifting tale of youth and rebellion from Arnold, with a pumping soundtrack and impressive performances.

Benjamin

Benjamin
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 25min
  • Directed by: Simon Amstell
  • Cast: Colin Morgan, Anna Chancellor, Phénix Brossard

Benjamin (Morgan) is a filmmaker who’s entirely wrapped up in his work, but who then falls for French musician Noah (Brossard). This semi-autobiographical tale from writer-director Amstell is wry and self-deprecating, with Brossard a delight as Noah and Morgan a comic revelation as the awkward but endearing Benjamin.

Bergman: A Year in a Life

Bergman: A Year in a Life
  • 2018
  • Sweden / Norway
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Jane Magnusson

Documentary about a pivotal year in the life of Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, looking at how his nature was revealed in his work. Despite some fatuous adulatory comments from famous fans, it’s a fascinating and wide-ranging film with enough fresh material to appeal to those looking to dig into Bergman’s work and life.

Everybody Knows

Everybody Knows
  • 2018
  • Spain / France / Italy
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Carla Campra

Laura (Cruz) returns to her small town for a family wedding with her teenage daughter Irene (Campra) and young son. But then Irene is kidnapped. A stellar cast and careful craftsmanship make this portrait of family tensions perfectly watchable, but it’s a bit soapy and predictable and never as gripping as it might be.

Girl

Girl
  • 2018
  • Belgium / Netherlands
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Lukas Dhont
  • Cast: Victor Polster, Arieh Worthalter, Oliver Bodart

Fifteen-year-old Lara (Polster) was born male but identifies as female, and dreams of becoming a ballerina. A thoughtful, compassionate, empathetic drama with a star-making central performance from cis actor Polster, although transgender reviewers have been critical.

The Great Escape

The Great Escape
  • 1963
  • US
  • 2h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Sturges
  • Cast: Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, James Coburn

The classic WWII escape drama, featuring a fine ensemble cast trying to get out of the Nazi stalag. McQueen's 'Cooler King' became a screen icon, particularly in the scene where he attempts to jump over a field of barbed wire fences on a motorbike.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale

Four high school teens in detention discover the magical board game Jumanji, now a video game, and after being sucked into it they become the avatars they’ve chosen. Crude but amusing sequel to the 1995 original, with Black having a ball as he gets in touch with his inner prom queen.

Minding the Gap

Minding the Gap
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Bing Liu

Debut feature documentary by Liu about his relationship with best friends Keire and Zack, from skateboarding teenagers to young men grappling with responsibility, family, race, class, masculinity and abuse. Skilfully edited, beautifully shot and superbly scored. One of the best documentaries of the year.

Old Boys

  • 2018
  • UK / Sweden
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Toby MacDonald
  • Cast: Alex Lawther, Jonah Hauer-King, Pauline Etienne

In an 80s boarding school spin on Cyrano, Amberson (Lawther) agrees to help handsome but dim Winchester (Hauer-King) to write love letters to Agnes (Etienne). Lawther is charming and likeable, and Hauer-King is a real find; good supporting turns and some visual imagination prop up the slightly underwhelming plot.

Sauvage

Sauvage
  • 2018
  • France
  • 1h 40min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Camille Vidal-Naquet
  • Cast: Félix Maritaud, Eric Bernard

Léo (Maritaud) is a young homeless man who survives as a hustler, showing little concern for his own health and welfare but yearning for romance. Maritaud gives himself body and soul as the believable and poignant Léo and it has a raw, documentary-like authenticity that’s often upsetting.

Under the Silver Lake

Under the Silver Lake
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 19min
  • Directed by: David Robert Mitchell
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough, Topher Grace

Sam (Garfield) becomes obsessed with Hitchcockian blonde Sarah (Keough), and when she suddenly disappears he goes in search of her. Lynchian exploration of LA noir, fitfully amusing but lacking the intensity of its rather obvious influences.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h
  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Anna Diop

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.

The White Crow

The White Crow
  • 2018
  • UK/France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Ralph Fiennes
  • Cast: Oleg Ivenko, Ralph Fiennes, Louis Hofmann

The story of Rudolf Nureyev (Ivenko), delving into his work and sex life and how he defected from the Soviet Union in 1961. Ukrainian dancer Ivenko gives an intensely physical performance and Fiennes’ light touch as a director makes it something exciting, genuine and naturally sexy.

Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights
  • 2011
  • UK
  • 2h 9min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrea Arnold
  • Written by: Andrea Arnold, Olivia Hetreed
  • Cast: Kaya Scodelario, James Howson, Oliver Milburn

The director of Red Road and Fish Tank is seemingly more concerned with paying homage to Robert Bresson and the Dardenne Brothers here than with telling a winning story, and while her big, bold move is to make Heathcliff black, she fails to do anything interesting with it.
