3 Faces

Iranian actor Behnaz Jafari (playing herself) is distraught after receiving an apparent suicide note from a girl whose family forbid her to pursue studies at a drama school. With her director (Jafar Panahi) in tow, she flees the film she’s working on and embarks on a road trip to Iran’s rural north to locate the girl. Directing frequently farcical encounters with signature restraint, Panahi gently probes the patriarchal customs that impact women in all areas of Iranian society, astutely revealing a myopic worldview lurking beneath the veneer of apparently quaint local traditions and rituals of hospitality. While its preoccupations are ostensibly within a national context, Three Faces unearths startling resonances with contemporary global preoccupations with gender and power.

Alphaville

Alphaville
  • 1965
  • France
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jean-Luc Godard
  • Written by: Jean-Luc Godard
  • Cast: Eddie Constantine, Anna Karina, Akim Tamiroff, Howard Vernon

Enjoyable mid-60s Godard caper which turns contemporary Paris into Alpha 60, a chilly city of the future from which such concepts as love and tenderness have been banned. Enter Constantine's grizzled gumshoe Lemmy Caution and we're set for an extended and highly idiosyncratic homage to comic strip heroism.

Casablanca

Casablanca
  • 1942
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Curtiz
  • Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid

You must remember this … Bogart being impossibly noble, Bergman torn between two lovers, Claude Rains playing both ends against the middle, devious Nazis, a fogbound airport, a piano-player tinkling that tune. A wonderful hill of beans.

Everybody Knows

Everybody Knows
  • 2018
  • Spain / France / Italy
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Carla Campra

Laura (Cruz) returns to her small town for a family wedding with her teenage daughter Irene (Campra) and young son. But then Irene is kidnapped. A stellar cast and careful craftsmanship make this portrait of family tensions perfectly watchable, but it’s a bit soapy and predictable and never as gripping as it might be.

The Favourite

The Favourite
  • 2018
  • Ireland / UK / US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos
  • Cast: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult

In the court of Queen Anne (Colman), power is wielded by Lady Sarah Marlborough (Weisz), but then Sarah’s young cousin Abigail (Stone) arrives. Brash, bawdy and beguiling, and a deceptively acute commentary on the nature of power, with career-best work from Weisz and Stone and a commanding performance from Colman as the ailing Queen.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Will Arnett

Disgruntled that so many big players in the DC Universe have their own movie but they themselves don’t, the Teen Titans pressure hotshot director Jade Wilson (Bell) to make one. Inventive and very funny animated superhero comedy which is a treat for kids and adults alike.

Under the Silver Lake

Under the Silver Lake
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 19min
  • Directed by: David Robert Mitchell
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Riley Keough, Topher Grace

Sam (Garfield) becomes obsessed with Hitchcockian blonde Sarah (Keough), and when she suddenly disappears he goes in search of her. Lynchian exploration of LA noir, fitfully amusing but lacking the intensity of its rather obvious influences.
