The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski
  • 1997
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore

The Coen brothers give their unique twist to a Chandler-esque LA noir, as 70s hippy throwback Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski (Bridges) is drawn into the sordid affairs of his millionaire namesake. Suddenly he has to sleuth his way through disorganised crime. Trademark oddball characters, surreal imagery and excellent performances grace this virtuoso comedy.

BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

Climax
  • 2018
  • France
  • 1h 35min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gaspar Noé
  • Cast: Sofia Boutella, Romain Guillermic, Souheila Yacoub

A dance troupe comes together to rehearse for a tour, but during the break someone spikes the sangria with acid and things quickly get weird. Noé’s fifth feature is as mixed-up as ever (opening credits halfway through, end credits at the start) and it aims to be the ultimate bad trip movie, but ultimately it’s both impressive and irritating.

Cold War

Cold War
  • 2018
  • Poland / France / UK
  • Directed by: Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Jeanne Balibar

In 1949 Poland, Wiktor (Kot) is given the job of starting a folk music and dance academy, where he falls for Zula (Kulig). Pawlikowski’s film, dedicated to his own parents, is shot in ravishing black and white and is a stunning love story, steeped in song and emotion and exquisitely crafted.

Varda’s mischievousness and empathy radiate throughout, and the pair’s cross-generational friendship is enriching, inspiring and irrestistible.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger
  • 2018
  • Ireland/UK/France
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lenny Abrahamson
  • Cast: Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter

Dr Faraday (Gleeson) returns to Hundreds Hall, which he knew as a boy, to help care for the war-wounded family son (Poulter), but there seems to be a supernatural presence. Gleeson gives a career-best turn as the haunted Faraday but while it’s laudably subtle it’s also narratively inert.

Matangi / Maya / M.I.A.

  • US / UK
  • Directed by: Stephen Loveridge
  • Cast: Maya Arulpragasam

Documentary about rapper M.I.A., aka Maya Arulpragasam, from her formative years on a London council estate to the present. Loveridge shows how Maya’s rap persona was born in part of her immigrant status and guilt about family members left to face the violence in Sri Lanka, and the film conveys the passion that fuels the artist’s work.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.

  • Cast: Voices of Christopher Plummer, Edward Asner, Paul Eiding

Seventy-eight year old curmudgeon Carl Fredericksen and eight-year-old Junior Wilderness Explorer Russell embark on the adventure of a lifetime in South America. While it unfolds on a grand scale, at its heart is a human story that will resonate with viewers of every age. Marrying sadness with triumph, Pixar have created another masterpiece.
