Handsome Devil

Handsome Devil
  • 2016
  • Ireland
  • 95 min
  • Directed by: John Butler
  • Cast: Fionn O'Shea, Nicholas Galitzine, Andrew Scott

Ned (O’Shea) is a young misfit in an authoritarian boarding school, forced to share a room with good-looking, charismatic Conor (Galitzine), but who finds guidance from unconventional teacher Dan Sherry (Scott). Scott gives a lively performance and O’Shea and Galitzine are impressive, but the details are unpersuasive and the story lacks originality.

Heal the Living

Heal the Living
  • 2016
  • France / Belgium
  • 104 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Katell Quillévéré
  • Cast: Tahar Rahim, Bouli Lanners, Anne Dorval, Emmanuelle Seigner

Teenager Simon (Verdet) has no sense of his own mortality, but when he’s fatally injured in a car accident, his mother (Seigner) has to decide what to do with his organs. Wonderfully credible and humane, with intriguing stories, an impressive cast and a reverence for life which can be felt in every frame.

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: William Oldroyd
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie

Katherine (Pugh) is a young bride shackled to a middle-aged man; when left alone in the grand manor house she begins an affair with a stable-hand (Jarvis) and it all goes downhill. Restrained, compulsively watchable debut feature with a chilling, droll performance from Pugh as the wicked but compelling Katherine.

Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive
  • 2001
  • US
  • 146 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Lynch
  • Written by: David Lynch
  • Cast: Justin Theroux, Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Ann Miller, Robert Forster

Given the troubled production history of Lynch's nightmare noir – it was originally a pilot for a US television series which was cancelled – it's nothing short of miraculous that Mulholland Drive shines with the filmmaker's idiosyncratic brilliance. Although set in the present day (albeit with retro styling), Lynch draws on his fascination with 40s and 50s Hollywood and its secret history of crime, here involving two actresses, amnesiac Rita (Harring) and amateur sleuth Betty (Watts). The proceedings veer into the kind of waking nightmare territory that either flummoxes or delights viewers, as Lynch mixes the bizarre and almost laughable with the moments of electrifying fear.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
  • 1975
  • US
  • 133 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Miloš Forman
  • Cast: Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, William Redfield, Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd

Forman's classic film adaptation of Ken Kesey's seminal novel, one of the very best films from a brilliant era in US filmmaking.

Smurfs: The Lost Village

Smurfs: The Lost Village
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

Suntan

Suntan
  • 2016
  • Greece
  • 106 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Argyris Papadimitropoulos
  • Cast: Makis Papadimitriou, Ellie Tringou, Dimi Hart

On a remote Greek island, a middle-aged doctor (Papadimitriou) has a fling with a young tourist (Tringou) and then becomes a bit too keen on her for her liking. A poignant mix of midlife meltdown and painful comedy is seriously flummoxed by an ending that’s as subtle as a sledgehammer.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
  • 1992
  • France/US
  • 135 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Lynch
  • Cast: Sheryl Lee, Moira Kelly, David Bowie, Chris Isaak, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Wise, Kyle MacLachlan

Practically dispensing wholesale with the humour that underscored the TV series, Lynch's prequel film is a surreal tour-de-force. Frequently unpleasant and nonsensical but imbued with striking imagery.
