  • Directed by: Takashi Miike
  • Cast: Takuya Kimura, Hana Sugisaki, Sôta Fukushi

Immortal swordsman Manji (Kimura) is haunted by the death of his sister until he meets Rin (Sugisaki) who reminds him of her and who also seeks vengeance: redemption time! Ultra-violent samurai action directed with typical panache but also with surprising conscience and splashes of macabre humour.

The Disaster Artist
  • 2017

  • 1h 38min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Franco
  • Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Hannibal Buress, Melanie Griffith, Sharon Stone, Jacki Weaver

The story behind the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, regarded by many as the worst movie ever made; Franco plays the hapless auteur with impressive mimicry and sincerity. A charming tale about friendship, reaching for your dreams and trying to make it in Hollywood.

Happy End

Happy End
  • 2017
  • France / Austria / Germany
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: Michael Haneke
  • Cast: Jean-Louis Trintignant, Isabelle Huppert, Mathieu Kassovitz, Fantine Harduin

The story of a powerful, privileged bourgeois family living near Calais but seemingly oblivious to everything happening on its doorstep. It’s bleak and pitiless, and doesn’t quite have the hypnotic intensity of previous Haneke films like Amour and The White Ribbon.

Human Flow
  • 2017
  • Germany
  • 2h 20min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ai Weiwei
  • Cast: Israa Abboud, Hiba Abed, Rami Abu Sondos

Ambitious documentary about the global refugee crisis,, made with 25 crews criss-crossing the globe. Ai’s empathy for the displaced comes through and although it’s a little unwieldy at times, it’s full of poetic images and fascinating on-the-ground footage.

  • Directed by: Arnaud Desplechin

It's A Wonderful Life

It's A Wonderful Life
  • 1946
  • US
  • 2h 9min
  • U
  • Directed by: Frank Capra
  • Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

Jules et Jim

Jules et Jim
  • 1962
  • France
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Francois Truffaut
  • Cast: Jeanne Moreau, Oskar Werner, Henri Serre.

French New Wave filmmaker Truffaut's third film, made in 1962, was undoubtedly his masterpiece and released on a lovely new print still speaks to a contemporary consciousness. Set in the 1910s and 20s it is the story of a freewheeling love triangle between alpha female Catherine (Moreau), Austrian Jules (Werner) and Frenchman Jim (Serre).

L'Amant Double

L'Amant Double
  • 2017
  • France
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: François Ozon
  • Cast: Marine Vacth, Jérémie Renier, Jacqueline Bisset

Former model Chloé (Vacth) consults a psychiatrist, Paul (Renier) and the two become a couple. Then she learns that he has a twin brother who favours a more hands-on approach. Overwright, heavyhanded psychosexual melodrama with copious amounts of shagging, dodgy sexual politics and a ludicrous plot.

In a conservative Hasidic community in Brooklyn, widowed father Menashe (Lustig) wants to raise his own 12-year-old son (Niborski), but the rabbi rules that the boy must live with relatives until such time as Menashe is ready to remarry. Lightly comic character piece which examines its milieu with affection and humour.

Mountains May Depart

Mountains May Depart
  • 2015
  • China / France / Japan
  • 2h 11min
  • Directed by: Zhangke Jia
  • Cast: Tao Zhao, Yi Zhang, Jing Dong Liang

In 1999, dance instructor Tao (Zhao) is torn between coal miner Liangzi (Liang) and entrepreneur Zhang (Zhang). A sweeping portrait of friendship that captures the changing face of modern China, as well as a melancholy reflection on lost dreams, it has the scope and emotion of a great novel.

The Prince of Nothingwood

The Prince of Nothingwood
  • 2017
  • France / Germany
  • 1h 25min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sonia Kronlund

Documentary about Afghanistan’s most prolific filmmaker, Salim Shaheen, who has made over a hundred movies even in wartime conditions. Director Kronlund lets Shaheen self-mythologise without restraint and although it’s a touch repetitive and could use more context, it’s a fun and sometimes revealing fly-on-the-wall about an indefatigable movie eccentric.
