Ad Astra

Ad Astra
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

Aladdin

Aladdin
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Numan Acar, Billy Magnussen, Alan Tudyk, Frank Welker

Disney’s live-action version of 1992’s Aladdin features a fun, fast-talking and scene-stealing Smith and terrific work from Massoud and Scott as Aladdin and Jasmine, but against that there’s some weird VFX, odd directorial choices and a well-intentioned but clunky female empowerment number. Enjoyable and entertaining nevertheless.

Bad Education (La Mala Educacion)

Bad Education (La Mala Educacion)
  • 2004
  • Spain
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Written by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Cast: Gael García Bernal, Fele Martinez, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Javier Cámara, Petra Martínez, Leonor Watling

A successful young movie director Enrique (Martínez) receives an unexpected visitor – someone claiming to be his childhood friend and lover Ignacio (Bernal), who now prefers to be called Angel. He shows Enrique a short story The Visit about a transsexual singer Zahara (also Bernal) who sleeps with a married admirer called Enrique and who attempts to blackmail the priest Father Manolo (Cacho) who abused her schoolboy self. But who exactly is Angel and why is he carrying around Iganacio's work? And what is the connection between Manolo and the mysterious Berenguer (Homar)? Possibly the finest 'Almodrama' to date, this sizzles with Hitchcockian verve and Ripleyesque menace. An absolute delight. Almodovar is undoubtedly one of the finest filmmakers working in Europe today.

Blinded by the Light
  • 2019

  • Cast: Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra

In 1982 Luton, Javed (Kalra) is a misfit who struggles to relate to family, neighbours and girls until he discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen. A joyful musical comedy about how music connects people; if it sometimes feels forced, and isn’t going to win prizes for subtlety, it’s still uplifting fun.

The Killers

The Killers
  • 1946
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • 12
  • Directed by: Robert Siodmak
  • Written by: Story:, Ernest Hemingway, Screenplay:, Anthony Veiller, Richard Brooks, Uncredited:, John Huston
  • Cast: Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, Edmond O'Brien, Sam Levene

All the markers of the classic film noir are here in abundance as insurance investigator O'Brien looks into the mysterious death of Burt Lancaster. Better than the Don Siegel remake, if only for the atmospherics.

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.

Pain and Glory

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.
