2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey
  • 1968
  • UK
  • 2h 19min
  • U
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain (voice)

Kubrick's gloriously grand architecture sees prehistoric apes timelined into a space ballet featuring a lunar craft docking to the sound of Strauss. This scene prefigures an extended drama aboard a spacecraft bound for Jupiter involving the murderous AI computer and the giant embryo of a space child signifying … what? The next step in human evolution? An opaque masterpiece, which suggests so much, yet explains so little. Which is why it's a timeless classic.

  • 2017
  • Germany
  • 2h 20min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ai Weiwei
  • Cast: Israa Abboud, Hiba Abed, Rami Abu Sondos

Ambitious documentary about the global refugee crisis, made with 25 crews criss-crossing the globe. Ai’s empathy for the displaced comes through and although it’s a little unwieldy at times, it’s full of poetic images and fascinating on-the-ground footage.

Paula (Dosch) is dumped by her older lover and has a doorstep meltdown that leads to her mental health being questioned, but in reality she’s been under his thumb for so long that she’s not used to being alone. Characterful comedy drama with a charismatic and appealing turn from Dosch even in the most ignominious scenarios.

L'Amant Double

L'Amant Double
  • 2017
  • France
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: François Ozon
  • Cast: Marine Vacth, Jérémie Renier, Jacqueline Bisset

Former model Chloé (Vacth) consults a psychiatrist, Paul (Renier) and the two become a couple. Then she learns that he has a twin brother who favours a more hands-on approach. Overwright, heavyhanded psychosexual melodrama with copious amounts of shagging, dodgy sexual politics and a ludicrous plot.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK/France
  • 1h 35min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ava DuVernay
  • Written by: Madeleine L'Engle (novel), Jennifer Lee (screenplay)
  • Cast: Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, André Holland, Zach Galifianakis, Oprah Winfrey

Meg (Reid) is a headstrong, mixed-race 13-year-old who has to deal with the usual adolescent issues while searching for her missing scientist father (Pine); she soon goes on a planet-hopping adventure. Reid is an utterly charming heroine and the film allows her to be opinionated and self-doubting; an inspirational watch for all ages and genders.
