The Boy and the Beast (Bakemono no ko)
  • 2015
  • Japan
  • 1h 59min
  • Directed by: Mamoru Hosoda

An angry nine-year-old struggles to cope with the death of his mother and the absence of his father in the latest hand-drawn animation from Wolf Children director, Mamoru Hosoda. The animation is impressive throughout, but it is the balance of visual spectacle and heartfelt emotions that cuts deepest.

Chinatown

Chinatown
  • 1974
  • US
  • 2h 11min

  • Directed by: Roman Polanski
  • Written by: Robert Towne
  • Cast: Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston

Private eye Jake Gittes takes on a routine case in 1937 LA and ends up uncovering more than he bargained for. Splendid conspiracy thriller with a handsome period look and a quite superlative cast. Despite rumours spread by Nicholson and Polanski, though, the nose-slitting scene was faked.

  • Directed by: Francis Lee
  • Written by: Francis Lee
  • Cast: Josh O'Connor, Alec Secareanu, Gemma Jones

Johnny (O’Connor) is a young Yorkshireman living with his sour grandmother (Jones) and disgruntled father (Hart), whose life is turned upside-down by the arrival of Romanian migrant Ghoerghe (Secareanu). Fluid photography and achingly honest performances make for a transformative drama about the possibility of a better life.

  • 2017

  • 1h 25min

  • Directed by: Philippe Van Leeuw
  • Cast: Hiam Abbass, Diamand Bou Abboud, Juliette Navis

Character-led drama set against the background of war-battered Damascus. Skilfully made, and the lead actresses in particular do raw but heartfelt work, but it’s all very manipulative and for all its sincerity and technical achievement, you’re left with not much more than a feeling of how lucky you are.

  • Directed by: Geremy Jasper
  • Cast: Danielle Macdonald, Bridget Everett, Siddharth Dhananjay, Cathy Moriarty

Patti (Macdonald) is a 23-year-old New Jerseyite who dreams of rap stardom but who works two jobs to pay the medical bills of her beloved Nana (Moriarty). Jasper’s debut film is a swaggering, big-hearted, joyous and unsentimental yarn; Macdonald is outstanding and Moriarty is a deft scene-stealer.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
  • 2017
  • France/US
  • 2h 17min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Kris Wu, John Goodman, Ethan Hawke, Rutger Hauer

Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne) are space-station police officers who uncover a plot involving a near-extinct race of creatures. Besson puts all his stock in fancy 3D chases but fails to provide a decent villain; it’s all very eye-catching and has some amusing cameos but of the two leads, only Delevingne does more than phone in her performance.

  • UK/US
  • 1h 51min

  • Directed by: Stephen Frears
  • Cast: Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Eddie Izzard, Adeel Akhtar, Michael Gambon

When Queen Victoria (Dench) is introduced to a young man from India, Abdul Karim (Fazal), she is charmed when he prostrates himself and kisses her foot: unlikely cross-cultural friendship and Urdu lessons duly ensue. Fazal and Dench are excellent and there’s a surprisingly effective political subtext.

The Work

The Work
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Gethin Aldous, Jairus McLeary

Documentary about a group therapy session in California’s Folsom State Prison; twice a year, members of the public are allowed to join prisoners and the film follows three men from one session. Filmmakers McLeary and Aldous clearly earned the mens’ trust, in an acutely observed and emotional journey about vulnerability and masculinity.
