Barry Lyndon

Barry Lyndon
  • 1975
  • UK
  • 3h 7min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Ryan O'Neal, Marisa Berenson, Patrick Magee, Hardy Krüger, Gay Hamilton, Godfrey Quigley, Steven Berkoff

Kubrick's epic adaptation of William Makepeace Thackery's picaresque novel about the attempts of an Irish upstart to become a member of the English aristocracy in the early part of the 19th century re-emerges for re-evaluation on a beautiful fully restored print. A stunning, sumptuous and sustained meditation on man's ultimate powerlessness at the hands of fate.

The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince
  • 2018
  • Germany / Belgium / UK / Italy
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rupert Everett
  • Cast: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Emily Watson

The tale of the last days of Oscar Wilde (Everett), as he lives out his post-prison existence in France and Italy. If Firth and Watson are underused as pal Reggie Turner and wife Constance, they’re well-cast, and Everett himself, in his accomplished directorial debut, is sensational as the fallen star. A surprising and courageously unflattering portrait.

Hereditary
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 7min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

Annie (Collette) is an artist who crafts a dollhouse depicting the traumas of her life, but then her family begins to feel they’re being haunted by her late mother. Unnervingly oppressive debut from Aster, exploring maternal guilt and family anxiety. Collette has one of her best roles in years.

  • 2017
  • Germany/France
  • 1h 46min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Fatih Akin
  • Cast: Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Numan Acar

When Katja (Kruger)’s husband (Acar) and young son (Santana) are killed in a nail bomb attack, she is further traumatised by a police investigation which focuses on his criminal past rather than the evidence that it was racially motivated. Kruger won Best Actress at Cannes for her outstanding work as Katja.

Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson
  • Cast: Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Kunichi Nomura, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Courtney B. Vance, Fisher Stevens, Mari Natsuki, Harvey Keitel, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Bob Balaban, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • 2018

  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.

Studio 54
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matt Tyrnauer
  • Cast: Steve Rubell, Ian Schrager

Excellent documentary on the storied NYC nightclub, with the great benefit of Studio 54’s co-founder Ian Schrager who shares his own experiences for the first time. The film shows the club’s combination of exclusivity and free-spiritedness, and details how arrogance and entitlement can derail the most glittering career.

A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 49min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ava DuVernay
  • Written by: Madeleine L'Engle (novel), Jennifer Lee (screenplay)
  • Cast: Storm Reid, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, André Holland, Zach Galifianakis, Oprah Winfrey

Meg (Reid) is a headstrong, mixed-race 13-year-old who has to deal with the usual adolescent issues while searching for her missing scientist father (Pine); she soon goes on a planet-hopping adventure. Reid is an utterly charming heroine and the film allows her to be opinionated and self-doubting; an inspirational watch for all ages and genders.
