42nd Street

42nd Street
  • 1933
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • U
  • Directed by: Lloyd Bacon
  • Cast: Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

‘Come and meet those dancing feet, on the avenue I’m taking you to – 42nd Street.’ One of the brightest, toe-tapping backstage musical triumphs from Depression era Hollywood, 42nd Street provided a major stepping stone in the career of twenty-two-year-old Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler is the chorus girl who steps in to replace an ailing leading lady and emerges a shiny new Broadway star but Rogers steals all her scenes as wise-cracking, gold-digging chorus girl Anytime Annie. Eye-popping choreography from Busby Berkeley is matched by an unforgettable score that includes ‘Shuffle off to Buffalo’, ‘You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me’ and the glorious title track. Part of the Glasgow Film Festival

City of Ghosts

City of Ghosts
  • 2017
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: Matthew Heineman

Documentary following a group of activists in Raqqa after the city is taken over by ISIS. While footage of extreme human cruelty is unbearably difficult to watch, City of Ghosts is essential viewing. Crucially, however, it also celebrates the power of community activism and journalism, and hammers home the need to help those fleeing such intolerable terror.

Metropolitan Opera: Macbeth
  • 2014

For her first time at the Met, star soprano Anna Netrebko delivers her searing portrayal of Lady Macbeth, the mad and murderous mate of Željko Lučić’s doomed Macbeth.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
  • 2016
  • France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Jérôme Salle
  • Cast: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou

Biopic of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau (Wilson), focusing on his strained relationship with his son. It looks fantastic, but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic cliché, with characters such as Cousteau’s long-suffering wife Simone (Tautou) pushed to the sidelines.

Song to Song
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 9min

  • Directed by: Terrence Malick
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender

Faye (Mara) is an aspiring musician torn between puppyish up-and-comer BV (Gosling) and handsome devil producer Cook (Fassbender), who is also the object of the desires of a waitress (Portman). Dreamy, elliptical but superficial romance which feels more like a long perfume ad than a proper drama.

Seventy-eight year old curmudgeon Carl Fredericksen and eight-year-old Junior Wilderness Explorer Russell embark on the adventure of a lifetime in South America.
