  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Written by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden
  • 2016
  • Korea
  • 144 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

  • 95 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Raoul Peck

Documentary examining race relations in America, based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript Remember This House, which is told through the stories of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Dr Martin Luther King. Director Raoul Peck makes use of Baldwin's writing over archive footage, news clippings and vintage photographs, excellently balancing Samuel L Jackson's narration with relevant imagery to produce a thought-provoking and affecting piece of work.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive
  • 2001
  • US
  • 146 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Lynch
  • Written by: David Lynch
  • Cast: Justin Theroux, Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Ann Miller, Robert Forster

Given the troubled production history of Lynch's nightmare noir – it was originally a pilot for a US television series which was cancelled – it's nothing short of miraculous that Mulholland Drive shines with the filmmaker's idiosyncratic brilliance. Although set in the present day (albeit with retro styling), Lynch draws on his fascination with 40s and 50s Hollywood and its secret history of crime, here involving two actresses, amnesiac Rita (Harring) and amateur sleuth Betty (Watts). The proceedings veer into the kind of waking nightmare territory that either flummoxes or delights viewers, as Lynch mixes the bizarre and almost laughable with the moments of electrifying fear.

  • 2016

  • 99 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Julia Ducournau
  • Written by: Julia Ducournau
  • Cast: Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella

During a hazing ritual at veterinary school Justine (Marillier) eats meat for the first time and develops an unbidden appetite for it. Ducournau’s first feature film has received much attention for its horrific depiction of cannibalism, with reports of dry-heaving and fainting audience members when it was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival. Its subversion of classic tropes and surreal and vivid style of filming contributes to its overall effectiveness as both a coming-of-age horror and a gruesome dark comedy.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 127 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Warren Beatty
  • Cast: Lily Collins, Alden Ehrenreich, Annette Bening, Howard Hughes

Naive beauty contest winner Marla (Collins) arrives in Hollywood in 1958 with her rightly suspicious mother (Bening) and a personal driver, Frank (Ehrenreich), but both are employed by Howard Hughes (Beatty). Odd, fitfully disquieting tragicomedy, entertaining but uncertain in tone.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 108 min

  • Directed by: Ritesh Batra
  • Cast: Jim Broadbent, Harriet Walter, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer

Tony Webster (Broadbent) is a grumpy old git who’s on good terms with his ex wife (Walter); when he’s bequeathed the diary of an old friend, he is prompted to relive his schooldays. This adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel feels hokey and safe, although it has a nice cast and the scenes between Broadbent and Walter are among the few highlights.

Their Finest
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.
