The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski
  • 1997
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore

The Coen brothers give their unique twist to a Chandler-esque LA noir, as 70s hippy throwback Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski (Bridges) is drawn into the sordid affairs of his millionaire namesake. Suddenly he has to sleuth his way through disorganised crime. Trademark oddball characters, surreal imagery and excellent performances grace this virtuoso comedy.

BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

Climax
  • 2018
  • France
  • 1h 35min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gaspar Noé
  • Cast: Sofia Boutella, Romain Guillermic, Souheila Yacoub

A dance troupe comes together to rehearse for a tour, but during the break someone spikes the sangria with acid and things quickly get weird. Noé’s fifth feature is as mixed-up as ever (opening credits halfway through, end credits at the start) and it aims to be the ultimate bad trip movie, but ultimately it’s both impressive and irritating.

Cold War

Cold War
  • 2018
  • Poland / France / UK
  • Directed by: Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Jeanne Balibar

In 1949 Poland, Wiktor (Kot) is given the job of starting a folk music and dance academy, where he falls for Zula (Kulig). Pawlikowski’s film, dedicated to his own parents, is shot in ravishing black and white and is a stunning love story, steeped in song and emotion and exquisitely crafted.

  • Directed by: JR, Agnès Varda
  • Cast: Agnès Varda, JR

Director Agnès Varda and photographer JR go on a road trip through France, intending to send home postcards that gather the history of the places they visit. Varda’s mischievousness and empathy radiate throughout, and the pair’s cross-generational friendship is enriching, inspiring and irrestistible.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger
  • 2018
  • Ireland/UK/France
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lenny Abrahamson
  • Cast: Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter

Dr Faraday (Gleeson) returns to Hundreds Hall, which he knew as a boy, to help care for the war-wounded family son (Poulter), but there seems to be a supernatural presence. Gleeson gives a career-best turn as the haunted Faraday but while it’s laudably subtle it’s also narratively inert.

Lucky

Lucky
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 28min
  • Directed by: John Carroll Lynch
  • Cast: Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr

Lucky (Stanton) is a committed atheist who takes a quiet pleasure in his daily routines, while coming to terms with his mortality. Debut director Lynch downplays the drama, resting the film on Stanton’s cantankerous, charming performance and his interactions with others. An elegant and moving meditation on life and death and a fitting memorial to its late star.

  • US / UK
  • Directed by: Stephen Loveridge
  • Cast: Maya Arulpragasam

Documentary about rapper M.I.A., aka Maya Arulpragasam, from her formative years on a London council estate to the present. Loveridge shows how Maya’s rap persona was born in part of her immigrant status and guilt about family members left to face the violence in Sri Lanka, and the film conveys the passion that fuels the artist’s work.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 44min

  • Directed by: Chloé Zhao
  • Cast: Brady Jandreau, Tim Jandreau, Lilly Jandreau

Brady (Jandreau) is a South Dakotan bronco rider whose head has been stapled together following a rodeo accident, and who must face that another fall could kill him. Zhao uses non-professional actors to great effect, and the film broods with unforced inner tension and lyric naturalism.

A Simple Favour
  • 2018

  • 15
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.

Shadi (S. Bakri) has to accompany his father Abu Shadi (M. Bakri) as they hand-deliver wedding invitations for sister Amal (Zreik). Smartly-paced, modestly-scaled family drama that leaves a warm glow even while it deals honestly with difficult issues.

  • 2005

  • Directed by: Nick Park, Steve Box
  • Cast: Peter Sallis, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter

The long-awaited feature-length debut for Park's plasticine master and mutt Wallace & Gromit, is, to coin a phrase, a grand day out. This time, the cheese-loving Wallace and his canine chum have reinvented themselves as a humane pest-control outfit - 'Anti-Pesto' and there's a mysterious 'were-rabbit' on the prowl at the local neighbourhood Giant Vegetable competition. Knowing fun for all the family.
