Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
  • 2018
  • UK/USA
  • 1h 31min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bryan Singer
  • Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers

The Freddie Mercury story. Malek as Mercury does a great job, with a passionate and impressive performance, but despite the recreation of momentous performances it’s a disappointingly tame affair, with a by-the-numbers screenplay and a bland lack of insight into Mercury’s heritage or sexuality.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp

Newt (Redmayne) is back in London in 1927, while defeated Dark Wizard Grindelwald (Depp) has escaped and is heading to Paris. Law steps up as young Albus Dumbeldore and the film really flies in the final act, deepening characters and relationships and expanding the universe. A beast of a movie.

First Man

First Man
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 18min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Corey Stoll, Claire Foy

Biopic of the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong (Gosling), with subtle and unshowy performances from Gosling and from Foy as his no-BS wife Jan. An intimate and moving character drama with raw and visceral space-peril thrills and a hero whose fame rests on modesty, curiosity and problem-solving purposefulness.

The Grinch

The Grinch
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Yarrow Cheney, Scott Mosier
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Kenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, Angela Lansbury

The Grinch (Cumberbatch) is a grumpy, green creature who despises Christmas so much that he plots to steal it. The animation is gorgeous, the pace is breezy and Cumberbatch does a decent job with the voice, but the film is stolen by the Grinch’s adorable dog Max.

Peterloo

Peterloo
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 2h 34min
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Neil Bell

Historical drama depicting the 1819 massacre at St Peter’s Field in Manchester and its background. Leigh crafts an ensemble story on a far greater canvas than he’s ever attempted before, and shows he can handle big-scale action; while it struggles at times to gel, the quieter moments really linger. Passionate and finely-crafted.

Shoplifters

Shoplifters
  • 2018
  • Japan
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Hirokazu Koreeda
  • Cast: Kirin Kiki, Lily Franky, Sakura Andô

A family in Tokyo lives by shoplifting, and then Osamu (Franky) and Shota (Kairi) bring home a little girl who seems to be homeless. The humanity of the performances and the loving attention to visual detail are of a piece in what’s ultimately a film about love.

A Star is Born

A Star is Born
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.

Suspiria

Suspiria
  • 1976
  • Italy
  • 1h 34min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Dario Argento
  • Written by: Dario Argento, Daria Nicolodi
  • Cast: Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Flavio Bucci, Miguel Bosé, Alida Valli, Joan Bennett

Perhaps Argento's most successful and best known film – set in a witches' coven hidden within a ballet school – finds the Italian slashmeister at the height of his power. The heart-stopping set pieces remain as shocking today as they did decades ago, and throughout there's good use of colour, framing and design.

  • UK
  • 1h 25min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Stoten
  • Cast: Teresa Gallagher, John Hasler, Peter Andre, Keith Wickham, Rob Rackstraw, Matt Wilkinson, Nigel Pilkington, Christopher Ragland

Thomas the Tank Engine (voiced by Hasler) heads on a global adventure, encouraged by a free-spirited race car (Andre) and a potential romance with engine Nia (Grundy). A bland, impersonal plot will fail to entertain anyone except the tiniest of tots.

Widows

Widows
  • 2018
  • UK / US
  • 2h 9min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Steve McQueen
  • Cast: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson

Veronica (Davis) is the wife of career criminal Harry (Neeson), who talks the wives of her husband’s associates into pulling off a heist after their husbands are unable to (see the movie title.) Densely populated and richly realised crime drama, with three fine leads in Davis, Debicki and Rodriguez, and McQueen’s contemplative style is balanced with genre thrills and feminist fury.

Wildlife

Wildlife
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Paul Dano
  • Cast: Ed Oxenbould, Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal

In Montana in 1960, Joe (Oxenbould) watches his parents’ marriage dissolve after they run into money troubles. Dano’s debut as a director is an impressive adaptation (co-written with Zoe Kazan) of Richard Ford’s novel, with a fiery and mesmerising performance from Mulligan as a woman on the edge. Haunting and elegantly done.
