Baby Driver

Baby Driver
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 113 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Edgar Wright
  • Written by: Edgar Wright
  • Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.

Berlin Syndrome

Berlin Syndrome
  • 2017
  • Australia
  • 116 min
  • Directed by: Cate Shortland
  • Cast: Teresa Palmer, Max Riemelt, Lucie Aron

Australian photographer Clare puts her life on pause to travel to Berlin where she enters into a highly-charged fling with harmless-seeming teacher Andi. A nailbiting, yet rigorously humanised thriller based on Melanie Joosten's novel.

Churchill

Churchill
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jonathan Teplitzky
  • Written by: Alex von Tunzelmann
  • Cast: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery

The story of how Churchill (Cox) was vehemently opposed to the Normandy landings of 1944. Intelligent, sometimes moving drama with an exceptional cast (especially Purefoy as a touching George VI) but not notably cinematic, stringing together a series of confrontations with shots of Churchill being driven from one place to another.

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 Skarsgård, 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.

From the Land of the Moon

From the Land of the Moon
  • 2016
  • 120 min
  • Directed by: Nicole Garcia
  • Cast: Marion Cotillard, Louis Garrel, Alex Brendemühl

Adapted from Milena Agus’s novel, this romance is the story of Gabrielle (Cotillard), a young woman married off by her parents who meets a dashing injured veteran of the Indochinese War (Garrel). The one-dimensional screenplay gives the cast nothing of substance to work with and, for a film supposedly about one woman's singular determination to pursue her desires, it is a neutered and coy affair.

Gattaca

Gattaca
  • 1997
  • US
  • 106 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrew Niccol
  • Written by: Andrew Niccol
  • Cast: Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law, Gore Vidal, Loren Dean

In the future, discrimination isn't based on the colour of a man's skin, but his genetic make-up. 'Naturally' born Vincent (Hawke) forms a pact with crippled Jerome (Law) to use his genetic identity in an attempt to become an astronaut. The photography is washed by coloured filters and the retro-future design is as distinctive as Blade Runner. Bold ideas develop at their own pace and, despite the intrusive 'Hollywood' moments, Gattaca emerges as a true individual in an industry of clones.

  • 2017
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

  • Directed by: Sunao Katabuchi
  • Cast: Non, Megumi Han, Yoshimasa Hosoya (voices)

Suzu (Non) is a young female artist living in Japan during WW2, who is jolted from her daydreams by bombing campaigns, culminating in the attack on Hiroshima. Exquisitely rendered study of survival in wartime, all the more effective for focusing on day-to-day details.

A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)
  • 2015
  • Sweden
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Hannes Holm
  • Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün, Tobias Almborg

Ove ( Lassgård) is an ageing, widowed grump who’s the self-appointed prefect of a small community; his attempts at suicide are continually frustrated by his new neighbours, mouthy Iranian immigrant Parvaneh (Pars) and her family. Shamelessly feelgood, with a welcome streak of black comedy, it’s predictable but heartwarming.

My Cousin Rachel
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Michell
  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Weisz is a fine choice for the eponymous enigma, while Claflin is superb as her heedless admirer Philip but the film feels desperately abbreviated.

  • Switzerland, France
  • 66 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Claude Barras
  • Cast: Gaspard Schlatter (voice), Sixtine Murat (voice), Paulin Jaccoud (voice)

Icare (Schlatter) is a nine year old boy who gets placed in an orphanage after the death of his alcoholic mother. Charming but profound stop-motion animated tale, skilfully adapted by Celine Sciamma (Girlhood) from Gilles Paris's novel; the kids' candid discussions about adult topics shows how much they have been through, yet it can be enjoyed by younger audiences.

  • Cast: Julian Assange, Sarah Harrison, Jacob Applebaum

Documentary about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange which focuses more on the man and less on his deeds, creating a fascinating study of the blurred lines between activism and ego. By making herself part of the story, Poitras makes the film compelling viewing.

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger
  • 2016
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, Tilda Swinton
  • Cast: John Berger, Tilda Swinton,

Wonderful documentary comprising four essay-films about the writer John Berger, in which Swinton and fellow film-makers hang out with him and discuss what it calls his ‘radical, democratic humanism’. Each film is stand-alone but they form a lovely mosaic, being not just about Berger but also about how others respond to him.

  • 2017
  • France
  • 122 min

  • Written by: Bruno Dumont
  • Cast: Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Portly police chief Machin (Després) and his sidekick Malfoy (Rigaux) investigate disappearing holidaymakers in Slack Bay; could cannibalism be involved? Madcap murder mystery with a stellar cast; the satire may be a touch obvious and the shtick becomes repetitive, but it’s speckled with hilarity.
