42nd Street

42nd Street
  • 1933
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • U
  • Directed by: Lloyd Bacon
  • Cast: Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Ginger Rogers

‘Come and meet those dancing feet, on the avenue I’m taking you to – 42nd Street.’ One of the brightest, toe-tapping backstage musical triumphs from Depression era Hollywood, 42nd Street provided a major stepping stone in the career of twenty-two-year-old Ginger Rogers. Ruby Keeler is the chorus girl who steps in to replace an ailing leading lady and emerges a shiny new Broadway star but Rogers steals all her scenes as wise-cracking, gold-digging chorus girl Anytime Annie. Eye-popping choreography from Busby Berkeley is matched by an unforgettable score that includes ‘Shuffle off to Buffalo’, ‘You’re Getting to be a Habit with Me’ and the glorious title track. Part of the Glasgow Film Festival

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bonni Cohen, Jon Shenk
  • Cast: Al Gore, Barack Obama, Donald J. Trump

Eleven years after the original film, this is a fly-on-the-wall portrait of the Big Daddy of global environmentalism going about his work. Gore comes across as a charming and savvy negotiator, funny, empathetic and passionate. An inspiring call to people to exercise their power.

Cars 3

Cars 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brian Fee
  • Cast: Armie Hammer, Nathan Fillion, Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington

Lightning (Wilson) is challenged by new car on the block, Jackson Storm (Hammer). The least interesting Pixar franchise rumbles on in a rudimentary cash-grab which is basically a training montage in search of a story, and Randy Newman’s score can’t save it from being a dull lunge for the finish line.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

Final Portrait

Final Portrait
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stanley Tucci
  • Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy

American writer James Lord (Hammer) poses for a portrait by legendary painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti (Rush), but regrets it as the deadline is extended beyond absurdity. Delightfully playful examination of the artist-subject relationship, and both Rush and Hammer are perfectly cast as the curmudgeonly master and his impeccably polite sitter.

A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • Directed by: David Lowery
  • Cast: Rooney Mara, Sonia Acevedo, Casey Affleck, Carlos Bermudez

C (Affleck) and M (Mara) are a couple; when C is killed in a car crash, he returns as a ghost to make contact with M. Lowery manages to reanimate the corny old trope of the ghost under a bedsheet, creating a story about grief and a captivating reflection on the enormity of mankind’s existence.

Land of Mine

  • 2015
  • Denmark/Germany
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Martin Zandvliet
  • Cast: Roland Møller, Louis Hofmann, Joel Basman

At the end of WW2, veteran Danish army sergeant Carl Rasmussen (Møller) is placed in charge of a group of teenage German POWs who he puts to work defusing and removing 45,000 landmines. Intelligent, poignant, Oscar-nominated drama about the dehumanising effect of war, carried by an ebullient, heartfelt performance from Møller.

Metamorphoses

  • 2014
  • France
  • 1h 42min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Christophe Honoré
  • Cast: Amira Akili, Sébastien Hirel, Mélodie Richard

Quirky coming-of-age story about gods and humans, (very) loosely based on the works of Ovid.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
  • 2017
  • Canada/US/South Korea
  • PG
  • Directed by: Cal Brunker
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph

In this inexplicable sequel to the underwhelming 2014 original, Surly Squirrel (Arnett) teams up with idealistic Andie (Heigl) and Precious (Rudolph) to save their park from the Mayor (Moynihan). The characters are unappealing and the script relies on uninspired action and flat non-jokes. At least there’s no ‘Gangnam Style’ this time.

Ratatouille

Ratatouille
  • 2007
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • U
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano, Ian Holm, Janeane Garofalo, Peter O'Toole, Brian Dennehy, Peter Sohn, Brad Garrett, Will Arnett

The Pixar masterpiece follows Remy the rat (voiced by Oswalt) as he chases his dream of becoming a gourmet chef. This is Pixar at its best, offering audiences both three dimensional images and storytelling with its thoughtful consideration of the relationship between the creative process and friendship. Yet Bird's colourful production never stints on fast, furious fun, with plenty of sight gags and chases through the streets, waterways, sewers and dinner tables of Paris.

Up
  • 2009

  • Directed by: Pete Docter/Bob Peterson
  • 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.
