Baby Driver

Baby Driver
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 113 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Edgar Wright
  • Written by: Edgar Wright
  • Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx

Baby (Elgort) is an Atlanta getaway driver, forced by his boss Doc (Spacey) into doing one last heist. Exuberant crime caper full of stonking music; the story is hardly original, but Wright’s snappy dialogue and zesty direction reinvigorates the genre clichés, and the stars revel in it. Great fun.

Churchill

Churchill
  • 2017
  • 105 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Jonathan Teplitzky
  • Written by: Alex von Tunzelmann
  • Cast: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery

The story of how Churchill (Cox) was vehemently opposed to the Normandy landings of 1944. Intelligent, sometimes moving drama with an exceptional cast (especially Purefoy as a touching George VI) but not notably cinematic, stringing together a series of confrontations with shots of Churchill being driven from one place to another.

Hampstead

Hampstead
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joel Hopkins
  • Written by: Robert Festinger
  • Cast: Diane Keaton, James Norton, Brendan Gleeson

Emily (Keaton) is an American widow living in Hampstead who falls for the grumpy Donald (Gleeson), who lives in a shack on Hampstead Heath. Twee later-life rom-com with Ketaon in pure ditz mode; her and Gleeson’s chemistry is appealing, but there are no surprises.

In This Corner of the World

In This Corner of the World
  • 2016
  • Japan
  • 128 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sunao Katabuchi
  • Cast: Non, Megumi Han, Yoshimasa Hosoya (voices)

Suzu (Non) is a young female artist living in Japan during WW2, who is jolted from her daydreams by bombing campaigns, culminating in the attack on Hiroshima. Exquisitely rendered study of survival in wartime, all the more effective for focusing on day-to-day details.

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon

Love Is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon
  • 1998
  • UK
  • 90 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John Maybury
  • Cast: Derek Jacobi, Daniel Craig, Tilda Swinton.

By no means a documentary-style portrait of the artist, Love is the Devil is concerned with the destructive relationship between Bacon and his lover George Dyer. Far more visual and experimental than most of what passes for British cinema these days. Jacobi has an uncanny physical resemblance to Bacon, but the real acting revelation is Craig (Geordie in Our Friends in the North) who superbly gives life to this human tragedy waiting to happen.

  • 2016
  • France / Belgium / Japan
  • 80 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michaël Dudok de Wit
  • Cast: Emmanuel Garijo, Barbara Baretta, Tom Hudson (voices)

A man washes up on a desert island; when he tries to build a raft, it’s destroyed by a mysterious red turtle. Breathtaking début feature by Dutch writer, director and animator, a stunning, life-affirming tale of man’s relationship with nature, entirely worthy of the Ghibli name (the studio co-produced it).

  • USA
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

Wonder Woman
  • 2017
  • US

  • Directed by: Patty Jenkins
  • Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

Diana (Gadot) is a princess of the Amazons, who rescues WW1 pilot / secret agent interest Steve (Pine) and resolves to end the war. Stylish and exciting, with a top cast, touches of real humour and tragedy, and spiffing action sequences, anchored by a strong and highly likeable performance from Gadot.
