Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace
  • 2018
  • US
  • 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. Digital technology has at last made it possible to sync the sound recording with the footage: revel in Aretha at the height of her power, with an exuberant choir, an engaged congregation and celebrity guests Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts.

Birds of Passage

  • 2018
  • Colombia / Denmark / Mexico
  • 2h 5min
  • Directed by: Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra
  • Cast: Natalia Reyes, Carmiña Martínez, José Acosta

Rapayet (Acosta) is a member of Colombia’s indigenous Wayuu people who becomes a drug lord. Rich in texture and atmosphere, and with strong performances, it’s full of intimate and observational moments as it bears witness to the birth of the narcotics industry which has decimated Colombian culture.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
  • 2019
  • USA
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Joe Berlinger
  • Cast: Lily Collins, Zac Efron, Angela Sarafyan

The story of Ted Bundy (Efron), told from the perspective of his initially oblivious partner Elizabeth Kendall (Collins). It fails to strike a good balance between Kendall’s voice and showing off Efron’s bravura Bundy impersonation, expecting the viewer to forget the confessions of a killer, which rob the film of tension.

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.

Wild Rose

Wild Rose
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Jessie Buckley, Julie Walters, Sophie Okonedo

Rose-Lynn (Buckley) is a Glaswegian woman who, on leaving prison, resumes her quest for fame as a country music singer. A warm-hearted and inspiring tale, not without clichés in the Cinderella tradition, and Buckley is a genuine star in the ascendant.
