The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales…

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales…
  • 2017
  • France/Belgium
  • 1h 23min
  • U
  • Directed by: Patrick Imbert, Benjamin Renner
  • Cast: Kamel Abdessadok, Jules Bienvenu, Guillaume Bouchède

Whoever thinks that the countryside is calm and peaceful is mistaken. In it we find especially agitated animals: a Fox that thinks it's a chicken; a Rabbit that acts like a stork; and a Duck who wants to replace Father Christmas. Its charming, hand-drawn 2D animation is utterly beguiling and will please both children and adults alike with its nostalgic feel and inspired visual gags.

  • 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.

Solaris

Solaris
  • 1972
  • USSR
  • 2h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Written by: Fridrikh Gorenshtein, Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Cast: Natalya Bondarchuk, Donatas Banionis, Jüri Järvet, Vladislav Dvorzhetsky, Nikolai Grinko, Anatoly Solonitsyn

Tarkovsky's epic was intended as a socialist response to Kubrick's '2001', but some critics have lambasted it for its cod psychology and tired melodrama. Others believe it to be his most accessible film charged with a genuine poignancy and depth. Critics, eh?

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.
