The Current War

The Current War
  • 2017

  • 1h 45min
  • Directed by: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
  • Cast: Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nicholas Hoult

The tale of the 19th century battle to become the company that runs America’s electrical system, featuring mercurial showman Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch) and stolid engineer George Westinghouse (Shannon). Despite elegant cinematography and impressive set-pieces, it feels like an epic saga squashed into a tight canvas; a solid period drama that never quite comes to life.

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk

Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk

Movie star and former caddie (and star of the great golf comedy Caddyshack) Bill Murray narrates Loopers, a documentary tracing the origins and importance of the folk who carry golfers’ bags. Loopers interviews caddies in Scotland and Ireland, as well as professional caddies for charismatic top golfers such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, and it explains how a caddie’s ability to read courses and understand greens is vital to a golfer’s success. Entertaining and insightful, Loopers is a great glimpse into the world of caddies. [PG]
