Gladiator

Gladiator
  • 2000
  • US
  • 150 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Oliver Reed, Derek Jacobi, Djimon Hounsou, Ralf Möller, Richard Harris

Just before dying, Caesar Aurelius (Harris) charges General Maximus (Crowe) with cleaning up his beloved, but politically corrupt Rome. Aurelius' son, Commodus (Phoenix), doesn't take kindly to this and has his rival executed. But Maximus survives and, as a gladiator, works his way back to Rome intent on revenge. Parallels must be drawn with 'Sparticus' and 'Ben Hur'; we've not seen a Roman epic in a long time. Scott's is a handsome spectacle and exciting enough, but that's all it is.

Teenager Simon (Verdet) has no sense of his own mortality, but when he’s fatally injured in a car accident, his mother (Seigner) has to decide what to do with his organs. Wonderfully credible and humane, with intriguing stories, an impressive cast and a reverence for life which can be felt in every frame.

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 89 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: William Oldroyd
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie

Katherine (Pugh) is a young bride shackled to a middle-aged man; when left alone in the grand manor house she begins an affair with a stable-hand (Jarvis) and it all goes downhill. Restrained, compulsively watchable debut feature with a chilling, droll performance from Pugh as the wicked but compelling Katherine.

The Transfiguration

The Transfiguration
  • 2016
  • US
  • 97 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael O'Shea
  • Cast: Eric Ruffin, Chloe Levine, Aaron Clifton Moten

Lonely orphan teenager Milo (Ruffin) lives with his war veteran brother (Moten) in a housing project; obsessed with vampire lore, he meets Sophie (Levine), a fellow orphan and outsider. Low-key, staunchly realistic take on vampirism as a metaphor for how violence operates in teen lives, soldily acted, imaginative and sensitive.
