The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger

  • Ireland/UK/France
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lenny Abrahamson
  • Cast: Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter

Dr Faraday (Gleeson) returns to Hundreds Hall, which he knew as a boy, to help care for the war-wounded family son (Poulter), but there seems to be a supernatural presence. Gleeson gives a career-best turn as the haunted Faraday but while it’s laudably subtle it’s also narratively inert.

  • 2018
  • Germany/Luxembourg
  • 1h 26min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christoph Lauenstein, Wolfgang Lauenstein
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ian Coppinger

Luis (Maloney) is an 11-year-old boy obsessed with aliens, who gets visited by some shape-changing extra-terrestrial blobs. It has an attractive sheen and likeable characters, but the tone is uncertain and it’s too derivative and unsure of itself to win many admirers.

  • 2017

  • 1h 44min

  • Directed by: Chloé Zhao
  • Cast: Brady Jandreau, Tim Jandreau, Lilly Jandreau

Brady (Jandreau) is a South Dakotan bronco rider whose head has been stapled together following a rodeo accident, and who must face that another fall could kill him. Zhao uses non-professional actors to great effect, and the film broods with unforced inner tension and lyric naturalism.

  • Directed by: Jay Roach
  • Written by: John McNamara, Bruce Cook
  • Cast: Elle Fanning, Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane

Screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston) finds his career coming to a sudden end when he is blacklisted and accused of being a communist. McNamara’s breezy screenplay condenses complex events and an eventful life into a trim, accessible feature, and Cranston is compelling. Informative and entertaining.

Vertigo

Vertigo
  • 1958
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
  • Written by: Alec Coppel, Samuel A Taylor
  • Cast: James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes

Detective Stewart, a man afraid of heights, falls in love with a woman who apparently commits suicide. When he meets her double, he becomes obsessed with the possibility that she is still alive. Extraordinary plotting in this undervalued Hitchcock study of romantic mania, with Stewart memorably cast against type as the distinctly on-the-edge cop. The Bernard Herrmann score is simultaneously lush and disturbing.
