  • 1h 27min
  • Directed by: Alan Elliott, Sydney Pollack

Documentary about Aretha Franklin’s 1972 concert at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles, shot at the time by Sydney Pollack and realised by Alan Elliott.

Apollo 11
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Todd Douglas Miller

Documentary marking the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing with never-before-seen footage and newly discovered audio recordings. The rockets are spankingly new and exciting, and it’s a piece of gleaming history showing the youth, hope and enthusiasm of the time.

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK / USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

The Captor

  • 2018
  • Canada / US
  • 1h 32min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Robert Budreau
  • Cast: Mark Strong, Noomi Rapace, Ethan Hawke

Lars (Hawke) is a bank robber who takes a bank hostage so as to demand that an imprisoned friend be released. This fictionalisation of the origin of Stockholm syndrome is strangely dull and lacks depth, although Hawke injects some warmth as the buffoonish and tender Nystrom.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ol Parker
  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

Orlando

Orlando
  • 1992
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Sally Potter
  • Written by: Sally Potter, Virginia Woolf (novel Orlando: A Biography)
  • Cast: Tilda Swinton, Billy Zane, Lothaire Bluteau, John Wood, Charlotte Valandrey

A male Elizabethan courtier begins a journey of self-discovery that involves four centuries and a sex change. Swinton's simple but unique beauty captures the androgyny of the perfect Everyman/woman, while director Potter creates from Virginia Woolf's novel a humorous and visually splendid succession of episodes that is a constant joy to watch. A literary film rather than a literature substitute.

The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride
  • 1987
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Reiner
  • Written by: William Goldman
  • Cast: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, André the Giant, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane

Princess Buttercup is chosen by the nasty Prince Humperdinck to be his bride but her heart belongs to the farm boy Westley. The princess' kidnapping prompts the return of Westley, now a pirate, and launches a series of swashbuckling adventures, after which true love can prevail. William Goldman's heavily ironic fairy tale is given a spirited treatment by the director of Stand By Me and an enthusiastic troupe.

Us
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h
  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Anna Diop

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.
