Late Night

Late Night
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nisha Ganatra
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, John Lithgow

Katherine (Thompson) is a seasoned talk show host who, when forced to hire new writing staff, takes on former chemical plant employee Molly (Kaling). Kaling’s script is peppy, good-natured and has a good grasp of the issues, and Thompson has her best role in years. Piquant and winning.

Men in Black: International

Men in Black International
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Les Twins, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson

Molly (T. Thompson) is a wannabe MIB agent who’s given a chance by Agent O (E. Thompson) and teamed up with golden boy Agent H (Hemsworth). It’s not so much that it’s bad, more that the franchise wasn’t much to begin with: here, a CGI-heavy story relies far too much on Hemsworth’s insouciant charm. A high-budget non-event.

Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

Sometimes Always Never

Sometimes Always Never
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Carl Hunter
  • Cast: Bill Nighy, Jenny Agutter, Alice Lowe

Alan (Nighy) is a fastidious widower who joins his son Peter (Riley) at the seaside on family business. Fine performances, including an ever-excellent one from Nighy, can’t quite breathe life into Hunter’s Wes Anderson-ish mannerisms, in this gently melancholic but too studied comedy drama.

Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard
  • 1950
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Billy Wilder
  • Cast: William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim

An unsuccessful screenwriter is drawn into the fantasy world of Norma Desmond, a silent movie star who dreams of making a triumphant return to the screen. Widely accepted as a classic of US cinema, and rightly so.
