  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Michael Moore

Documentary on the state of the USA, in which Moore asks the question ‘How the f*** did this happen?’ Heartfelt and angry, it draws comparisons between Trump and Hitler which work disturbingly well, but also devotes time to such promising developments as the student anti-gun movement.

Halloween

  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John Carpenter
  • Written by: John Carpenter, Debra Hill
  • Cast: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, PJ Soles, Nancy Loomis

The first and best of the series – and one of the best of all slasher movies. Escaped psycho Michael Myers returns to the town where he killed his sister several years before and picks up where he left off with remarkable ease. Pleasence is the obsessive psychiatrist on his trail, convinced he is to blame for the escape. A scary reminder of what a blood-soaked genre could achieve if only it recovered from sequelitis.

Solaris

Solaris
  • 1972
  • USSR
  • 2h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Written by: Fridrikh Gorenshtein, Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Cast: Natalya Bondarchuk, Donatas Banionis, Jüri Järvet, Vladislav Dvorzhetsky, Nikolai Grinko, Anatoly Solonitsyn

Tarkovsky's epic was intended as a socialist response to Kubrick's '2001', but some critics have lambasted it for its cod psychology and tired melodrama. Others believe it to be his most accessible film charged with a genuine poignancy and depth. Critics, eh?

A Star is Born

A Star is Born
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Bradley Cooper
  • Cast: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott

Jackson (Cooper) is a famous musician, his best years behind him, who discovers young singer Ally (Gaga) in a bar one night. What could have been yet another remake is a revelation: Gaga sings up a storm and is nuanced and convincing, but Cooper is extraordinary as co-writer, producer, director and star. Smart, funny and heartbreaking.
