Birds of Passage

  • 2018
  • Colombia / Denmark / Mexico
  • 2h 5min
  • Directed by: Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra
  • Cast: Natalia Reyes, Carmiña Martínez, José Acosta

Rapayet (Acosta) is a member of Colombia’s indigenous Wayuu people who becomes a drug lord. Rich in texture and atmosphere, and with strong performances, it’s full of intimate and observational moments as it bears witness to the birth of the narcotics industry which has decimated Colombian culture.

Madeline's Madeline

Madeline's Madeline
  • 2018
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Josephine Decker
  • Cast: Helena Howard, Molly Parker, Miranda July

Madeline (Howard) is a vulnerable teenager caught between her downtrodden mom Regina (July) and her seemingly sympathetic acting coach Evangeline (Parker), who mines Madeline’s life for the work of their drama group. Decker uses absurdist imagery to explore Madeline’s overwhelmed take on the world; gutsy performances from Howard, July and Parker help make it terrifically satisfying.

  • Japan/US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Suki Waterhouse, Omar Chaparro, Chris Geere, Ken Watanabe, Bill Nighy

Tim (Smith) is a former Pokémon trainer who teams up with Pikachu (voiced by Reynolds) to solve a mysterious car accident which leaves his detective father presumed dead. Reynolds’ voice skills are incredible, you don’t need to know about the franchise to get what’s going on and it’s a quirky and lovingly crafted surreal comedy thriller.

Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.
