At Eternity's Gate

At Eternity's Gate
  • 2018
  • Switzerland/UK/France/US/Ireland
  • 1h 51min
  • Directed by: Julian Schnabel
  • Cast: Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac

Vincent Van Gogh (Dafoe) discovers the landscape of Arles and meets the locals. Dafoe gives a supremely committed performance, by turns touchingly sweet, achingly vulnerable and a bit scary, and Delhomme’s cinematography is ravishing; possibly one of the definitive films about this troubled genius.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Bo Burnham
  • Cast: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Kayla (Fisher) is an awkward teenager in her last week of grade school, who posts would-be inspirational vlogs while lacking confidence in daily life. Fisher is superb as the anxious, heroic Kayla and it’s a humane and sometimes hilarious debut from comedian-turned-filmmaker Burnham.

Everybody Knows

Everybody Knows
  • 2018
  • Spain / France / Italy
  • Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
  • Cast: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Carla Campra

Laura (Cruz) returns to her small town for a family wedding with her teenage daughter Irene (Campra) and young son. But then Irene is kidnapped. A stellar cast and careful craftsmanship make this portrait of family tensions perfectly watchable, but it’s a bit soapy and predictable and never as gripping as it might be.

Loro

  • 2018
  • Italy / France
  • 2h 25min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Paolo Sorrentino
  • Cast: Toni Servillo, Elena Sofia Ricci, Riccardo Scamarcio

Small-time pimp Sergio (Scamarcio) aims to enter the Eurotrashy world of Silvio Berlusconi (Servillo). Distilled from two films, this is a flashy, baroque wallow in sleaze, with Servillo capturing Berlusconi’s mannerisms yet managing to find the humanity in him. Sprawling and unexpectedly melancholy, it nevertheless only seems to scratch the surface of history.

Mid90s

Mid90s
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 25min
  • Directed by: Jonah Hill
  • Cast: Sunny Suljic, Lucas Hedges, Na-kel Smith, Olan Prenatt, Gio Galicia, Ryder McLaughlin, Alexa Demie, Katherine Waterston

Stevie (Suljic) is a 13-year-old whose brother beats him up, and in an escape from his domestic woes he starts hanging out with an older crew of skaters. Hill’s debut feature shows plenty of creative daring and is pleasingly non-judgmental, a witty and compassionate portrait of adolescence.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Monty Python's Life of Brian
  • 1979
  • UK
  • 1h 33min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Terry Jones
  • Written by: Monty Python
  • Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

The Gospel According to Monty Python offended a whole host of religious dominations upon its initial release, which rather obscured the fact that behind the controversy lay their most sustained humour to date. A host of very funny setpieces and smart cameos from all the team climaxes in a rather fetching musical crucifixion.

The Sisters Brothers

The Sisters Brothers
  • 2018
  • US /France
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Jacques Audiard
  • Cast: John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Rutger Hauer

In 1850s Oregon, brothers Charlie and Eli Sisters (Phoenix and Reilly) are guns for hire who have conflicting ambitions in life. Although the body count is extensive, Audiard is more concerned with reflection and introspection, and the film resounds with both hopeful optimism and resigned melancholy.

Curzon Soho

Even when it was first built in 1912 there was always the intention that this cinema should be a stablemate of Curzon Mayfair, but various twists and turns meant this only finally happened when Roger Wingate acquried it in 1985. It now claims to be one of the country's busiest arthouse cinemas, with cafes and a fully-licensed bar on site alongside showings of premieres, previews, one-off screenings and festivals.
