The Dead Don't Die

The Dead Don't Die
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • Directed by: Jim Jarmusch
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Carol Kane, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits

Jarmusch’s homage to the zombie movie makes the humans criminally dumb and apathetic and the zombies thirsty for coffee, wi-fi and candy. Swinton works her usual magic as a Scottish samurai mortician, Sevigny excels as a dangerously empathetic cop and if it’s insufficiently scathing about the penal system, the silly humour carries it along.

Diego Maradona

Diego Maradona
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Asif Kapadia

Kapadia provides another documentary portrait of a fallen star, after Senna and Amy. If this one isn’t as moving or compelling as its predecessors, it still has enough emotional heft to make it more than a celebration of great goals.

In Fabric

In Fabric
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Peter Strickland
  • Cast: Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Gwendoline Christie, Fatma Mohammed,

Sheila (Jean-Baptiste), a lonely, 50-something single mother, buys a 70s vintage dress which turns out to be mysteriously cursed. Ethereal, giallo-esque and with an appealing thread of off-kilter humour, it’s well-crafted and gorgeous to look at but not entirely coherent and (in its relentless use of the male gaze) sometimes problematic.

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love

Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love

In the 1960s, when Leonard Cohen was a burgeoning novelist and poet, he met young Norwegian Marianne Ihlen on the Greek island of Hydra. They fell in love and she became his muse, inspiring songs such as ‘So Long, Marianne’ and ‘Bird on the Wire’. In time, their relationship fractured and they lived apart, but as years passed and they grew older, the bond between them remained. Nick Broomfield – who also has links with Marianne and Hydra – tells a love story that is fascinating, tender and memorable. [12A]

Midsommar

  • 2h 20min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Vilhelm Blomgren, Archie Madekwe, Ellora Torchia, Will Poulter

Dani (Pugh) is a fragile American girl dating fellow student Christian (Reynor) who, after tragically losing family members, travels to Sweden with Christian and his friends to visit a commune. Slow-burn horror which simmers rather than explodes, but Pugh and Reynor give full-blooded turns and it’s transfixing.

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.
