Captain Fantastic

Captain Fantastic
  • 2016
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matt Ross
  • Written by: Matt Ross
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay, Samantha Isler

Ben (Mortensen) has raised a family of six off the grid in the Pacific Northwest, teaching them survival skills and science but leaving them unprepared for the rest of the world. The film doesn't face how Ben seems more like a cult leader than a great dad and it's contrived and contradictory, but Mortensen is a delight.

Hell or High Water

Hell or High Water
  • 2016
  • US
  • 102 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Mackenzie
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Gil Birmingham

Career criminal Tanner (Foster) and his taciturn brother Toby (Pine) rob banks across Texas, pursued by gruff Texas Ranger Marcus (Bridges) and his partner Alberto (Birmingham). A winning combination of Heat-style action, social commentary and character comedy, with a sensational cast and an aching heart.

Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai
  • 1954
  • Japan
  • 200 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Written by: Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto, Hideo Oguni
  • Cast: Takashi Shimura, ToshirĊ Mifune

A group of timid villagers seek protection against the excesses of a brutal warlord by hiring seven heroic samurai. Seminal Japanese action picture, with a slow-building dignity matching the best of John Ford, and in its stylishly aesthetic handling of screen violence, a profound influence on everyone from Peckinpah to Eastwood. Highly recommended.
