  • France
  • 2h 20min
  • Directed by: Robin Campillo
  • Cast: Arnaud Valois, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, Adèle Haenel

Exhilarating 90s-set drama following a group of activists who are members of an AIDS awareness group, Act Up-Paris. Campillo draws on his own experiences in the group, capturing the heady pleasures of dancing the night away in a club and the party atmosphere of a pride march, and the film as a whole is a near-tangible celebration of life and love.

Julien (Gioria) is eleven years old and his parents are splitting up. Against his will, he has to spend alternate weekends with his hated father Antoine (Ménochet). Legrand tackles the issue of domestic abuse with great skill; it’s often profoundly distressing, but that’s precisely the point.

A Fistful Of Dollars

A Fistful Of Dollars
  • 1964
  • Italy/Germany/Spain
  • 1h 40min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sergio Leone
  • Written by: Story:, A Bonzzoni, Víctor Andrés Catena, Sergio Leone, Screenplay:, Victor Andrés Catena, Jamie Comas Gil, Sergio Leone
  • Cast: Clint Eastwood, Marianne Koch, Gian Maria Volonté

Based on Kurosawa's samurai classic 'Yojimba', the spaghetti western that set the ball rolling has Clint squinting into the sun as The Man With No Name. An amoral figure, he profits from both sides as two duelling gangs fight it out in a small town. Ennio Morricone's distinctive score underlines the stylish delights in this the first of Leone's 'spaghetti western' trilogy.

Funny Cow

Funny Cow
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adrian Shergold
  • Cast: Maxine Peake, Stephen Graham, Paddy Considine

Funny Cow (Peake) is a northern woman who takes to stand-up comedy in the 70s and 80s. The film foregrounds the pain and suffering involved, from her abusive husband Bob (Pitts, also the screenwriter) and the grim reality of working men’s clubs. A fine supporting cast is largely wasted, but a great soundtrack and Peake’s fearless performance give it plenty of soul.

Ghost Stories

Ghost Stories
  • 2017
  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jeremy Dyson, Andy Nyman
  • Cast: Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Nicholas Burns

Anthology movie in which three twisted tales are presented as three unexplained hauntings which sceptical Professor Goodman (Nyman) has to investigate. Beautifully shot and with plenty of frights, but maybe not enough surprises, it’s playful and wryly funny enough for the shocks to have full impact.

Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson
  • Cast: Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Kunichi Nomura, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Courtney B. Vance, Fisher Stevens, Mari Natsuki, Harvey Keitel, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Bob Balaban, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

Let the Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In
  • 2017
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Claire Denis
  • Cast: Juliette Binoche, Philippe Katerine, Xavier Beauvois

Isabelle (Binoche) is a powerfully sexy middle-aged woman who for some reason can’t find a half-decent mate; on this farcical plot, Denis hangs an idiosyncratic, empathetic and intimate comedy, adapted from Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse with a wonderful sense of the absurd. Binoche is self-deprecating and achingly human.

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins
  • 1964
  • UK
  • 2h 19min
  • U
  • Directed by: Robert Stevenson
  • Cast: Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, David Tomlinson, Glynis Johns, Karen Dotrice, Matthew Garber

When high-spirited youngsters Jane and Michael Banks send yet another nanny packing with their shenanigans, they advertise for a replacement who'll 'sing songs and bake cakes'. Enter Andrews as the loveable Mary, a woman who turns the household on its head and forces their suffragette mother and banker father to finally pay their children some attention. Great songs, wonderful Technicolor animation in the fantasy scenes, and if it weren't for Dick Van Dyke's appalling London accent this would, like Mary, be 'practically perfect in every way'.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Noah Jupe

Lee Abbott (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Blunt), son (Jupe) and deaf daughter (Simmonds) live and work in an empty dystopian world in complete silence, hiding from creatures who hunt by sound. Krasinski's third film as director is a smart, weird sci-fi frightener that is beautifully simple but thoughtfully composed.

  • Directed by: Nicolas Roeg

Two English kids have to fend for themselves in the Australian outback when their father commits suicide. Sexual and cultural tensions are captured in some magnificent photography by the former cinematographer, here on his second film as director.

  • 2017
  • Germany / Bulgaria / Austria
  • 1h 59min
  • Directed by: Valeska Grisebach
  • Cast: Meinhard Neumann, Reinhardt Wetrek, Syuleyman Alilov Letifov

Valeska Grisebach's slow-burning drama about a laconic man (Neumann) who is part of a group of German workers that arrive in a small Bulgarian village to construct a water plant. Tension begins to show between the workers and villagers as the language barrier and the legacy of WWII are keenly felt. A thought-provoking and sparse film of beauty.

Wonderstruck

Wonderstruck
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Todd Haynes
  • Cast: Oakes Fegley, Julianne Moore, Millicent Simmonds

In 1927, deaf Rose (Simmonds) runs away to New York; in 1977, deaf Benji (Fegley) does the same thing. In this adaptation by Brian Selznick of his own illustrated novel, the detail detracts from the tender coming-of-age stories, but Haynes crafts a love letter to both New York’s history and the ever-changing face of cinema.
