Apollo 11

Apollo 11
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Todd Douglas Miller

Documentary marking the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing with never-before-seen footage and newly discovered audio recordings. The rockets are spankingly new and exciting, and it’s a piece of gleaming history showing the youth, hope and enthusiasm of the time.

Diego Maradona

Diego Maradona
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Kapadia provides another documentary portrait of a fallen star, after Senna and Amy. If this one isn’t as moving or compelling as its predecessors, it still has enough emotional heft to make it more than a celebration of great goals.

Don't Look Now

Don't Look Now
  • 1973
  • UK
  • 1h 43min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Nicolas Roeg
  • Cast: Julie Christie, Donald Sutherland

Restoration expert with second sight visits Venice, where he meets up with two old sisters who claim spiritual communication with his recently drowned daughter. Against a Mann-like backdrop of unexplained deaths, he becomes obsessed with a tiny, red-coated figure he spies scurrying through the city's dark alleys. Splendid supernatural suspense movie, as subtly textured and brilliantly edited as any of Roeg's work, with the added advantage that it's a rather good yarn.

  • Directed by: Kim Nguyen
  • Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek

Vinnie (Eisenberg) and cousin Anton (Skarsgård) decide to build a dead-straight fibre optic cable from Kansas to New Jersey to help speed up financial trading. A quirky, intriguing cautionary tale with fine performances and sleek editing, exploring the delicate balance between man and nature.

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.

Reservoir Dogs

Reservoir Dogs
  • 1992
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi, Lawrence Tierney, Michael Madsen

A gang of hoods, known only to each other by colour-coded nicknames, meets at an abandoned warehouse to figure how out their rigorously planned heist went so drastically wrong. The best debut in years from writer-director Tarantino, whose stylish violence seduces the audience into complicity. Brilliant in every sense of the word.

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.

Woody (Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

Wonder Park

Wonder Park
  • 2019
  • Spain / US
  • PG
  • Cast: Brianna Denski, Jennifer Garner, Ken Hudson Campbell

June (Mali and Denski) is faced with being shipped off to math camp while her mother (Garner) seeks medical assistance; then she finds herself in a parallel universe where she has to save a theme park. An animated film with big ideas and some notable omissions, ultimately a slight but rewardingly bittersweet experience.

Yesterday

Yesterday
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 52min
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon

Singer-songwriter Jack (Patel) is knocked unconscious when a bus hits his bike, and he wakes up in a world where the Beatles are unknown. There’s some fine comedy (including from Sheeran, playing himself) but it gets less surefooted; Patel can’t stop Jack from being rather morose and it’s neither a classic Curtis rom-com nor as infectiously euphoric as Boyle’s best work.
