Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Blade Runner: The Final Cut
  • 1982
  • US
  • 112 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
  • Sweden/Norway/France/Germany
  • 101 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roy Andersson
  • Cast: Nisse Vestblom, Holger Andersson

A series of periodically connected vignettes depicting life in a near-colourless but highly characterful Gothenburg, linked together by the endeavours of novelty item salesman Sam and Jonathan (Westblom and Andersson). The third part of Andersson's 'living' trilogy is full of inspired surrealism, dark humour and compassion for its hopeless characters.

The Salvation

The Salvation
  • 2015
  • Denmark
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kristian Levring
  • Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona

America, 1871: when Danish ex-pat Jon (Mikkelsen) kills the murderers of his wife (Fabricius) and son (Bjarke), he incurs the wrath of land baron Delarue (Morgan). Mikkelsen is terrific, Morgan is a despicable villain and Green, as a scarred mute, steals the movie without uttering a word. Impressive, well-made and passionately acted Western.
