The Connection

  • Directed by: Cédric Jimenez
  • Cast: Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette

Pierre Michel (Dujardin) is a driven Marseilles magistrate who sets out with the support of local police to catch drug kingpin 'Tany' Zampa (Lellouche). Despite an eclectic soundtrack of 70s and 80s pop and Djuardin's winning performance, there are no surprises here and it rarely shows the depth to support its challenging length.

  • Cast: Melissa Benoist, Al Pacino, Christopher Plummer

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

Phoenix
  • 2014
  • Germany
  • 98 min

  • Directed by: Christian Petzold
  • Cast: Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Nina Kunzendorf

Berlin, 1945: Nelly (Hoss), a camp survivor and burns victim, returns home to find that her husband (Zehrfeld) fails to recognise her, believing her to be a stranger who resembles her dead wife. Despite compelling performances, remarkable design and authentic historical anguish, the basic premise is so implausible that the film can't quite recover.

  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, Kelley Jakle, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Elizabeth Banks

After a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction at the White House, the Barden Bellas attempt to get their groove back in a Eurovision-like song contest. Despite highlights such as Lee's brilliantly weird performance as Lilly, the knowing charm of the original is diluted and Wilson's schtick, in particular, is starting to grate.
