Ad Astra
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

Bad Education (La Mala Educacion)

Bad Education (La Mala Educacion)
  • 2004
  • Spain
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Written by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Cast: Gael García Bernal, Fele Martinez, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Javier Cámara, Petra Martínez, Leonor Watling

A successful young movie director Enrique (Martínez) receives an unexpected visitor – someone claiming to be his childhood friend and lover Ignacio (Bernal), who now prefers to be called Angel. He shows Enrique a short story The Visit about a transsexual singer Zahara (also Bernal) who sleeps with a married admirer called Enrique and who attempts to blackmail the priest Father Manolo (Cacho) who abused her schoolboy self. But who exactly is Angel and why is he carrying around Iganacio's work? And what is the connection between Manolo and the mysterious Berenguer (Homar)? Possibly the finest 'Almodrama' to date, this sizzles with Hitchcockian verve and Ripleyesque menace. An absolute delight. Almodovar is undoubtedly one of the finest filmmakers working in Europe today.

  • 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.

It Chapter Two

It Chapter Two
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andy Muschietti
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader

Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Pain and Glory

Pain and Glory
  • 2019
  • Spain
  • 1h 53min
  • Directed by: Pedro Almodovar
  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Leonardo Sbaraglia

Retired director Salvador (Banderas) reflects on his life while one of his older movies is being restored. This is Almodóvar on subdued, melancholic form, and while the film’s standoffish tone prevents us from feeling fully involved, the director’s sense of cinema remains undiminished.

  • 2h 1min

  • Directed by: Pedro Almodóvar
  • Cast: Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas

IBLAS Talks Film- Lecturers from the Iberian and Latin American Studies department of the University of Liverpool present a series of films & talks from the wide Luso-Hispanic world that address historical and contemporary issues.

Revered Spanish director Pedro Almodavar is known to create rich worlds that revel in the mystery of women, described by him as the 'Cinema of women'.

Volver draws inspiration from Italian neorealism to address themes such as sexual abuse, loneliness and death as experienced by three generations of women from an eccentric family.

Rich in magical realism, a vivid palette and complex characters typical of Almodovar's films.
