After the Wedding

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • Directed by: Bart Freundlich
  • Cast: Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore, Billy Crudup

Isabel (Williams) is a charity worker and co-founder of an Indian orphanage who finds that a potential benefactor (Moore) is married to an old flame (Crudup). Blandly polished remake of Susanne Bier’s Oscar-nominated original, which devolves into soap opera-style revelations. Moore is terrific, but it lacks punch..

Joker

Joker
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell

A look at the later life of Judy Garland (Zellweger), as she marries her fifth husband (Wittrock) and performs a five-week run at a London nightclub. Zellweger is captivating as the deeply lonely star, struggling to keep her work commitments, adored but unhappy and wracked with guilt about being away from her children.

Cohesive and initimate exploration of racial identity, with an outstanding performance from Adewunni as a young man struggling against stereotypes.

  • Colombia / Argentina / Netherlands / Germany / Sweden / Uruguay / US
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alejandro Landes
  • Cast: Sofia Buenaventura, Moises Arias, Julianne Nicholson

In an unnamed Latin American country, a ragtag team of adolescent male and female guerrillas are guarding an American hostage, Doctora (Nicholson). There’s no social or political context: it’s a primal chaotic portrait of the impact of conflict on the soul. A masterful exploration of the inhumanity of battle and the hostilities of adolescence.

Official Secrets

Official Secrets
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 52min
  • Directed by: Gavin Hood
  • Cast: Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Ralph Fiennes

The story of Katharine Gun (Knightley), the GCHQ whistleblower who in 2003 leaked an email containing details of a US eavesdropping operation targeting UN Security Council members concerning the invasion of Iraq. Knightley gives a tightly-wound performance and Hood tells the story with sensationalising it. Possibly one of the most important films of the year.

The Peanut Butter Falcon
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tyler Nilson/Michael Schwartz
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen

Zak (Gottsagen) has Down’s Syndrome and dreams of becoming a wrestler; one night he sneaks out, meets crab fisherman Tyler (LaBeouf) and they go on the lam. It may sound contrived, but the Tyler-Zak relationship is incredibly sweet, and a cast of indie movie royalty make for a cockle-warming delight.

Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Richard Starzak
  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

Shaun and his gang of sheep are getting up to mischief that puts them at odds with sensible sheepdog Bitzer; then an alien craft arrives. This dialogue-free pristinely shambolic stop-motion romp is, in its deft way, a crowd-pleaser for everyone, with enough Close Encounters references to keep parents interested.

The Shining

The Shining
  • 1980
  • US
  • 2h 26min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Philip Stone.

Kubrick's overwrought, overlong horror film dispenses with much of the psychic apparatus of Stephen King's novel to concentrate on the deeper horror of a family turning in on itself. Nicholson, with all the stops out, is bug-eyed and demonic as the writer cracking up violently in an isolated hotel, and the final scenes are, literally, chilling.

Sorry We Missed You

  • 2019
  • UK
  • Directed by: Ken Loach
  • Cast: Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone, Katie Proctor

Ricky (Hitchen) becomes a freelance delivery driver in order to earn more money, but the financial toll on himself and his wife Abby (Honeywood) starts to destroy their family life. No easy answers, no triumph against the odds, just a gruelling portrait of the damage the system can do.

To Sleep With Anger

To Sleep With Anger
  • 1990
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • 12
  • Directed by: Charles Burnett
  • Written by: Charles Burnett
  • Cast: Danny Glover, Richard Brooks, Paul Butler, Mary Alice

An ambitious and charming attempt by black director Burnett to confront racial tensions in the US. Based on an old Georgian legend, it tells the story of traditionalist shit-stirrer Trickster, who visits friends in LA and causes everyone a lot of bother. Keenly political yet warm-hearted, this is a kind of Southern/West Coast response to Spike Lee's 'Do the Right Thing2.
