  • Directed by: John McTiernan

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block Christmas party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

The story of mob enforcer and union official Frank Sheeran (De Niro) and his relationship with Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) and Mafia string-puller Russell Bufalino (Pesci). The de-aging technology is easy to forgive thanks to the masterly filmmaking, and although there’s no room for a complex female character it’s gripping, sombre and builds to a shattering conclusion.

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

Ibiza has long been synonymous with hedonism and never-ending nightlife. In this unique immersive film, director Julien Temple brings something surprising and new to depictions of the party island: silence. Inspired by the silent movies of the past, Temple’s film uses minimal titles, animation, restagings and documentary footage old and new to tell the 2,000-year story of Ibiza and those who love it, from bohemians to ravers – all set to a soundtrack compiled by musical director and Ibiza veteran Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) from his own music and others’. A film phenomenon set to leave you speechless.

Gorbachev, now 87, is interviewed by Werner Herzog who questions him on the Cold War, his feelings about the Putin regime and his place in history. Illustrated by rare archive footage and propelled by the care and compassion of Herzog’s questions, this touching portrait captures the human side of a world leader as he recalls his relationships with Reagan and Thatcher, his beloved wife Raisa and his dashed dream of lasting change.

An experimental musician and filmmaker, sound and video artist, teacher and writer, the late Tony Conrad was revered in avant-garde circles – but remains under-appreciated in the wider artistic world.

 This 2016 documentary tells Conrad’s story, from his underground moviemaking days in 1960s New York and his musical collaborations with Faust, Genesis P-Orridge and Lou Reed, among many others, to the appearance at the 2011 All Tomorrow’s Parties festival that brought him to the attention of a new generation of fans. As Conrad continues to be reappraised, Completely in the Present celebrates the life and work of this uniquely influential figure.

Where Does a Body End

At times chaotic on stage and off, but never dull, this documentary starts at the beginning, when SWANS emerged in early 1980s New York, alongside other diverse talents like Sonic Youth and Madonna, as a brutal, confrontational post-punk band.

Moving into the 1990s, we follow the band's ill-fated attempt for mainstream success during the indie-rock goldrush, and then into the present era: as an accomplished and ambitious band, one whose concerts resemble ecstatic rituals, rather than the traditional nostalgia trip back through their most popular songs.
