David Brent: Life on the Road

Life on the Road
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ricky Gervais
  • Written by: Ricky Gervais
  • Cast: Ricky Gervais, Doc Brown, Andy Burrows, Rebecca Gethings

David Brent (Gervais) takes unpaid leave to pursue rock stardom with his band Foregone Conclusion. The skin-crawling songs are worth the price of admission, although the comedy feels crueller than before, and after a brilliant start and amusing middle, the film dissolves into cheap sentiment.

Wiener-Dog

Wiener-Dog
  • 2016
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Todd Solondz
  • Cast: Keaton Nigel Cooke, Danny De Vito, Ellen Burstyn

Portmanteau film following a dachshund passed from owner to owner, including a cantankerous octogenarian (Burstyn) and perennial loser Dawn Wiener (Gerwig) from Solondz's own Welcome to the Dollhouse. Not for dog lovers, but Solondz fans will find that their man is back on form with a cruel and bitterly funny travelogue.
