Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion

Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (Astérix: Le secret de la potion magique)
  • 2018
  • France
  • 1h 27min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Alexandre Astier, Louis Clichy

When Getafix injures himself he decides to pass on the secret of the potion to a worthy successor, so he, Asterix and Obelix go looking for a replacement. There are loads of great sight gags, the character interactions are funny and it’s true to the spirit of the books, but shame about not using the wonderful British voice cast from The Mansions of the Gods.

Bait
  • 2019

  • 1h 29min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Mark Jenkin
  • Cast: Edward Rowe, Isaac Woodvine, Mary Woodvine, Simon Shepherd

Martin (Rowe) is a boat-less Cornish fisherman trying to restore his family fortunes by catching fish any way he can. Jenkin uses silent cinema techniques to turn the tensions in a fishing village into riveting drama, shooting in black and white on a clockwork Bolex. A pertinent, leftfield take on class warfare.

  • UK
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: Waad Al-Khateab, Edward Watts

A documentary on life in Aleppo, filmed by al-Kateab over five years, as she and her husband Hamza set up a volunteer-run hospital. A powerful testament to the resilient people of Aleppo, with tragedy and heartbreak but also camaraderie and occasional resigned levity: urgent filmmaking at its finest.

Mrs Lowry & Son

Mrs Lowry & Son
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 31min
  • Directed by: Adrian Noble
  • Cast: Vanessa Redgrave, Timothy Spall, Wendy Morgan

LS Lowry (Spall) is a meek Salford rent collector dominated by his bedridden mother Elizabeth (Redgrave), but his secret passion for painting is about to bring him success. Hesford’s clichéd script feels more like a stage or radio play but Spall and Redgrave manage to bring substance to the bickering; still, it’s glum, downcast and lacking insight.

Notorious

Notorious
  • 1946
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • U
  • Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Written by: Ben Hecht
  • Cast: Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains

World War II. Cynical intelligence agent Grant enlists playgirl Bergman to help him uncover a Nazi atomic plot in Rio de Janeiro. She marries suave plotter Rains and then finds her life in alarming danger. Re-release of this taut, classic thriller, with a fine Ben Hecht script that effectively blends romance and suspense. Bergman and Grant create movie magic in each other's presence, particularly during what was advertised as 'the longest kiss in history'.

The Souvenir

The Souvenir
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 2h
  • 15
  • Directed by: Joanna Hogg
  • Cast: Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke, Tilda Swinton, Richard Ayoade

Julie (Swinton Byrne) is an unworldly filmmaking student, balancing her work with a fraught relationship with Foreign Office worker Anthony (Burke). Swinton Byrne gives a fine, unaffected performance (with her own mother Swinton as Julie’s stiff but loving mother) and Hogg provides a brilliant, unsparing portrait of her own creative evolution.
