After the Wedding

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..

The Day Shall Come

The Day Shall Come
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 28min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Chris Morris
  • Written by: Jesse Armstrong, Chris Morris
  • Cast: Marchánt Davis, Anna Kendrick, Danielle Brooks, Kayvan Novak, Denis O'Hare, Jim Gaffigan

Moses (Davis) is the founder of the Star of Six, an ailing community farm and mission, who refuses to take his psych meds; Kendra (Kendrick) is the FBI agent tasked with making him look like a bona fide terrorist. Well-researched and yet madcap, Morris’ comedy is firmly on the side of the mentally ill, goofball outsider, showing how the ‘war on terror’ became an assault on basic human decency.I.

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.

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.

  • 1h 42min

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 1975
  • UK
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jim Sharman
  • Written by: Richard O'Brien, Jim Sharman
  • Cast: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Richard O'Brien, Patricia Quinn, Nell Campbell, Jonathan Adams, Peter Hinwood, Meat Loaf, Charles Gray

The cult film to end all others, this rock spoof on old horror movies has created a breed of Rocky Horror crazies, and packs them in at late shows everywhere. The film has its moments, and Curry is splendidly camp as the bisexual Frank N Furter.

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.

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.
