The Dance of Reality (La danza de la realidad)

The Dance of Reality (La danza de la realidad)
  • 2013
  • Chile | France
  • 130 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Alejandro Jodorowsky
  • Cast: Brontis Jodorowsky, Pamela Flores, Jeremias Herskovits

Young Alejandro (Herskovits), growing up in Chile, suffers at the hands of his brutal communist father Jaime (Jodorowsky). Dreamlike and surprisingly moving autobiopic by the veteran director (El Topo, Santa Sangre), with compassion for those on the sidelines of society.

Denial

  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • 109 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mick Jackson
  • Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall

Deborah Lipstadt (Weisz) in a historian and lecturer who faces a libel suit after she derides controversial author David Irving (Spall) for his views on the Holocaust. This dramatisation of a 1996 court case has some compelling stretches, but Hare’s script lacks insight and it’s little more than a dry reconstruction of the trial.

The Devil's Backbone

The Devil's Backbone
  • 2001
  • Spain
  • 107 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Guillermo del Toro
  • Written by: Guillermo del Toro, Antonio Trashorras, David Muñoz
  • Cast: Fernando Tielve, Íñigo Garcés, Eduardo Noriega, Marisa Paredes, Federico Luppi

In del Toro's expertly-crafted ghost tale set during Spain's Civil War, a young Carlos is brought to a remote orphanage presided over by an odd elderly couple (Luppi and Paredes), and haunted by the ghost of another orphan. A powerful political backdrop is seamlessly interwoven with a strong religious subtext, and there are numerous cultural references including the surreal imagery of Salvador Dali and the Victorian Gothic writings of MR James. Gloriously photographed by Almodovar's cinematographer Guillermo Navarro, this is brilliant visual, allegorical storytelling.

Endless Poetry

  • 2016
  • Chile / France
  • Directed by: Alejandro Jodorowsky
  • Cast: Adan Jodorowsky, Jeremias Herskovits, Pamela Flores

Director Jodorowsky looks back at his own youth in Santiago in the 40s and 50s. Funny, touching and insightful second segment of a planned five-part autobiopic; grandiose and sometimes repetitive, but full of curiosity and energy.

Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge
  • 2016
  • US
  • 139 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mel Gibson
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn

Desmond Doss (Garfield) is a Seventh Day Adventist who enrols in the US Army in WWII and then refuses even to pick up a rifle, let alone shoot one. Doss’s real-life bravery and Garfield’s awkward-everyman persona make this rise above Gibson’s rather clichéd reverence, and the battle sequences are superbly realised.

Jackie

Jackie
  • 2016
  • USA
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pablo Larrain
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt

Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the determined individual crafting history.

La La Land

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

T2 Trainspotting

T2 Trainspotting
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.
