The Age of Shadows

The Age of Shadows
  • 2016
  • South Korea
  • 140 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Written by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Cast: Byung-hun Lee, Yoo Gong, Kang-ho Song

Lee Jung-Chool (Song Kang-ho) is a Korean police officer serving as part of a Japanese mission to locate a consignment of explosives in 1920s Shanghai. A little research into the political tensions of the era is advisable, but it has a steely verve and baroque style that makes for compelling viewing.

Aquarius

Aquarius
  • 2016
  • Brasil
  • 142 min
  • Directed by: Kleber Mendonça Filho
  • Cast: Sonia Braga, Maeve Jinkings, Irandhir Santos

Clara (Braga) is a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic, the sole remaining resident of an apartment block by the sea, but a construction company wants to knock it down. Effective, slow-burn drama with a sensational performance from Braga. A rare, rounded, fiery portrair of a middle-aged woman.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

Elle

Elle
  • 2016
  • France, Germany, Belgium
  • 130 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Paul Verhoeven
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Christian Berkel, Anne Consigny

Michele (Huppert) is a successful, middle-aged video games producer who, when raped by a violent intruder, doesn't report the assault but behaves as though nothing has happened. Verhoeven's dark character drama features an astonishing, multi-layered central performance from Huppert and its treatment of sexual violence is challenging and audacious.

  • US
  • 111 min

  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper
  • 2016
  • France
  • 105 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Olivier Assayas
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Nora von Waldstätten

Maureen (Stewart) is an American in Paris, coming to terms with the death of her twin brother while working in the titular position for her demanding celebrity boss (von Waldstätten). An awkward fusion of ghost story, celebrity culture satire and de Palma-style thriller; Stewart's nervy, edgy performance almost but not quite keeps it on track. Intriguing but incoherent.

Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain
  • 1950
  • US
  • 102 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen
  • Written by: Betty Comden, Adolph Green
  • Cast: Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen, Millard Mitchell

Hollywood undergoes the transition from the silent era to the talkies and reputations rise and fall. Absolutely wonderful musical entertainment, with the slickest of snappy dialogue, enduringly catchy numbers, a cast of genuine charisma, and an engaging picture of the industry in transition into the bargain. Quite splendid.
