All About Eve

All About Eve
  • 1950
  • US
  • 2h 18min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joseph L Mankiewicz
  • Written by: Joseph L Mankiewicz
  • Cast: Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, George Sanders, Celeste Holm

Davis and Baxter are on top form in this tale of back-stage back-biting and conniving, and a young Marilyn makes a big entrance in a small part. A witty and intelligent film. Now on re-release in digital.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Fairhead
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Neil Armstrong

Enthralling, expansive documentary about the life of Neil Armstrong, using archive footage and home movies to make a fascinating, moving portrait of the unassuming man who changed the way we look at the stars. Plenty of focus is given to his family, including first wife Janet, and the bravery and sacrifice of his colleagues is also honoured.

The Dead Don't Die

The Dead Don't Die
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • Directed by: Jim Jarmusch
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Carol Kane, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits

Jarmusch’s homage to the zombie movie makes the humans criminally dumb and apathetic and the zombies thirsty for coffee, wi-fi and candy. Swinton works her usual magic as a Scottish samurai mortician, Sevigny excels as a dangerously empathetic cop and if it’s insufficiently scathing about the penal system, the silly humour carries it along.

The Man Who Fell to Earth

The Man Who Fell to Earth
  • 1976
  • UK
  • 2h 18min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Nicolas Roeg
  • Cast: David Bowie, Rip Torn, Candy Clark

An alien searching for the water needed to save his own planet has his powers destroyed by the sinister machinations of a multinational business enterprise. A well-cast Bowie gives perhaps his best performance in this dazzling, occasionally opaque piece of Roegian sci-fi.

  • 2h 20min

Dani (Pugh) is a fragile American girl dating fellow student Christian (Reynor) who, after tragically losing family members, travels to Sweden with Christian and his friends to visit a commune. Slow-burn horror which simmers rather than explodes, but Pugh and Reynor give full-blooded turns and it’s transfixing.

  • Directed by: Harry Wootliff
  • Cast: Laia Costa, Josh O’Connor, Tam Dean Burn

The Witches

The Witches
  • 1990
  • US
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Nicolas Roeg
  • Cast: Jasen Fisher, Anjelica Huston, Mai Zetterling, Rowan Atkinson

Nine year old Luke is warned by his Norwegian granny about the ever present threat posed by witches, which isn't much help because within the next half hour he stumbles on their annual convention in a small English hotel and gets himself changed into a mouse. A pleasing adaption of Roald Dahl's children's story has director Roeg (in unusually straightforward manner) creating a superior kids' movie that has you rooting for the mice all the way.
