Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • 1981
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, Ronald Lacey, John Rhys-Davies, Denholm Elliott

Ford plays adventuring archaeologist Indiana Jones, who almost bites off more than he can chew when he turns up at the Ark of the Covenant in Nazi-infested wartime Egypt. Return to the breathless excitement of the Saturday morning serial with this rollercoaster of a movie, which is probably better than either of its sequels. Tongue held very firmly in cheek.

Mrs Lowry & Son

Mrs Lowry & Son
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Adrian Noble
  • Cast: Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall, Wendy Morgan

LS Lowry (Spall) is a meek Salford rent collector dominated by his bedridden mother Elizabeth (Redgrave), but his secret passion for painting is about to bring him success. Hesford’s clichéd script feels more like a stage or radio play but Spall and Redgrave manage to bring substance to the bickering; still, it’s glum, downcast and lacking insight.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Pain and Glory

  • 2019
  • Spain
  • 1h 53min
  • Directed by: Pedro Almodovar
  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Leonardo Sbaraglia

Retired director Salvador (Banderas) reflects on his life while one of his older movies is being restored. This is Almodóvar on subdued, melancholic form, and while the film’s standoffish tone prevents us from feeling fully involved, the director’s sense of cinema remains undiminished.
