An American Tail

An American Tail
  • 1986
  • US
  • 80 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Don Bluth
  • Cast: Phillip Glasser, Dom DeLuise, Nehemiah Persoff, Erica Yohn

In the late 19th century, the Mousekewitz family makes its way from trouble-torn Russia to a new life in America, but they find the streets of New York are not all paved with gold. A wealth of background detail displays Bluth's admirably painstaking approach to animation, but the foreground narrative, often agreeably perilous, does occasionally reek of sentimentality.

Amy

Amy
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Documentary on Amy Winehouse, charting her career from her early days to superstar status and subsequent fall. Kapadai creates an incredibly intimate look at the singer, with clips of her lighter side underlining the gravity of her loss. Punchy, provocative and just plain sad.

The Last Waltz

The Last Waltz
  • 1978
  • USA
  • 117 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese

Scorsese's film of the Band's final concert performance has become the benchmark by which rockumentary makers measure themselves (and usually find themselves wanting). Everyone's here, from Robbie Robertson and the boys to Dylan, Clapton, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Muddy Waters, Neil Young, the list goes on …

London Road

London Road
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 91 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rufus Norris
  • Written by: Alecky Blythe
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Olivia Colman, Kate Fleetwood

Musical set on the titular Ipswich street where a serial killer killed five women in 2006. Writer Blythe interviewed residents and composer Adam Cork set the resulting verbatim dialogue (hesitations and all) to music, making for a bold, inspired and entirely unique piece of cinema. Unmissable.

Mr. Holmes

Mr. Holmes
  • 2015
  • UK/US
  • 104 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Hattie Morahan, Hiroyuki Sanada, Patrick Kennedy

Sherlock Holmes (McKellen) is 93 and living in with his stern housekeeper (Linney) and her son (Parker); the aged detective is still haunted by a case from 30 years before. McKellen is superb, Linney is on form and while the unhurried pace will frustrate some, if you like a meditative Holmes, this is for you.

Over Our Dead Bodies

Over Our Dead Bodies
  • 1991
  • Directed by: Stuart Marshall

The Overnight

The Overnight
  • 2015
  • US
  • 80 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Patrick Brice
  • Cast: Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman, Judith Godrèche

Emily (Schilling) and Alex (Scott), new to LA, go to dinner with confident Kurt (Schwartzman), and his wife (Godrèche); after the kids have been put to bed, things turn awkwardly fruity. Painfully funny and brilliantly performed, forcing the audience and the central duo through a gauntlet of sometimes spectacular excruciation; deliciously squirm-inducing, if somewhat superficial.

  • 2015
  • UK/New Zealand
  • 84 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Maclean
  • Written by: John Maclean
  • Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Michael Fassbender, Caren Pistorius

In the Wild West, young Scottish nobleman Jay (Smit-McPhee) and his hired gun Silas (Fassbender) are on the trail of Rose (Pistorius), the object of Jay's affection. Witty, astonishingly accomplished debut by Maclean, even if it's too irreverent to be instantly iconic or truly heartbreaking.

The Third Man

The Third Man
  • 1949
  • US/UK
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Carol Reed
  • Cast: Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles.

Holly Martins has been invited to unstable, post-World War II Vienna by his old chum Lime, who is now in the grand-scale drug dealing business, only to discover that he is dead. Except, he isn't of course, and a multilayered cat and mouse scenario is triggered. So, what's so good about it? Well, you have a stirring zither score by Anton Karas, the ferris wheel and the 'cuckoo clock' speech yet possibly its greatest triumph is to cram so much wonder into so little time.
