Baby Driver

Baby Driver
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 1h 53min
  • 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.

The Beguiled

The Beguiled
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sofia Coppola
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.

The Man Who Wasn't There

The Man Who Wasn't There
  • 2001
  • US
  • 1h 56min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen
  • Cast: Billy Bob Thornton, Frances McDormand, Michael Badalucco, Richard Jenkins, Scarlett Johansson, Adam Alexi-Malle, Jon Polito, Tony Shalhoub, and James Gandolfini

Set in the Californian backwater town of Santa Rosa circa the 1940s, 'The Man Who Wasn't There' takes its cue from the cynical world of pulp crime writers like James M Cain. The tale turns on a regular fella, Thornton's mild-mannered barber Ed Crane, who is unwittingly the catalyst for a spiralling series of events beginning with infidelity and extortion and ending with, well, maybe you can guess. A wry-humoured, retro-styled, wickedly-plotted, moody gem.

The Red Turtle

The Red Turtle
  • 2016
  • France / Belgium / Japan
  • 1h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michaël Dudok de Wit
  • Cast: Emmanuel Garijo, Barbara Baretta, Tom Hudson (voices)

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).

  • 1976
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • PG
  • Directed by: John G Avildsen
  • Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers, Burgess Meredith

Back to the days when Stallone used to make good films (well, one, and this is it). It's the old rags-to-riches saga dressed up by writer Sly as a boxing drama about a dim-witted Philadelphia lad who makes it good in gloves. This one took the Best Picture Oscar, the four that followed adhered to the law of diminishing returns.

Seven

  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow

Police detective William Somerset is seven days away from retirement. For his last case, he is joined by his soon-to-be replacement, David Mills. The case at hand is the discovery of an overweight man with his limbs all attached to a chair. Meanwhile, Mills leads an investigation into the savage murder of a lawyer lying by the words 'Greed' on the floor. The two detectives soon realise that both cases are closely linked. Indeed, the murderer’s crimes are inspired by the seven deadly sins.

Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla

  • Japan
  • 2h
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Hideaki Anno, Shinji Higuchi
  • Cast: Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, Satomi Ishihara

A burst of underwater activity unleashes a creature in Tokyo Bay; the sea monster goes on the rampage and is christened Godzilla. Overly earnest reboot in which far too much time is spent on various government and scientific agencies wondering what to do, which may have worked well for domestic audiences but is a lot less fun outside Japan.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
  • 1992
  • France/US
  • 2h 15min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Lynch
  • Cast: Sheryl Lee, Moira Kelly, David Bowie, Chris Isaak, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Wise, Kyle MacLachlan

Practically dispensing wholesale with the humour that underscored the TV series, Lynch's prequel film is a surreal tour-de-force. Frequently unpleasant and nonsensical but imbued with striking imagery.

2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey
  • 1968
  • UK
  • 2h 19min
  • U
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain (voice)

Kubrick's gloriously grand architecture sees prehistoric apes timelined into a space ballet featuring a lunar craft docking to the sound of Strauss. This scene prefigures an extended drama aboard a spacecraft bound for Jupiter involving the murderous AI computer and the giant embryo of a space child signifying … what? The next step in human evolution? An opaque masterpiece, which suggests so much, yet explains so little. Which is why it's a timeless classic.
