  • US
  • 1h 38min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bonni Cohen, Jon Shenk
  • Cast: Al Gore, Barack Obama, Donald J. Trump

Eleven years after the original film, this is a fly-on-the-wall portrait of the Big Daddy of global environmentalism going about his work. Gore comes across as a charming and savvy negotiator, funny, empathetic and passionate. An inspiring call to people to exercise their power.

The Big Sick

The Big Sick
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Showalter
  • Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano

Culture clash comedy written by real life couple Emily V Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. It plays out with charming, sometimes toe-curling honesty and an acknowledgement of how complicated life can get when expectations weigh heavy and tradition unceremoniously intervenes.

Borg vs McEnroe

Borg/McEnroe
  • 2017
  • Sweden/Denmark/Finland
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Janus Metz
  • Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Stellan Skarsgård, David Bamber

Spot-on performances from Shia LaBeouf and Sverrir Gudnason power this story of a classic sporting rivalry. Flashbacks to pushy parents in the case of McEnroe, and unsupportive ones with Borg are relied on a bit too heavily, as are the usual sports movie clichés, but the match itself is suspenseful and exhilarating to watch, despite knowing the outcome.

Daphne

Daphne
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Peter Mackie Burns
  • Written by: Nico Mesinga
  • Cast: Emily Beecham, Geraldine James, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor

Daphne (Beecham) is a wisecracking 31-year-old who thinks she knows it all before she witnesses something which knocks her for six. The script could be punchier and James is wasted as Daphne’s mum, but Burns’s narrative debut benefits from Beecham’s charismatic performance: a star in the making.

Detroit

Detroit
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 23min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Kathryn Bigelow
  • Cast: John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Algee Smith, Will Poulter

In Detroit, 1967, during city-wide rioting, armed police descend on the Algiers Motel and subject innocent partygoers to a vicious all-night interrogation. Bald, confrontational, uncomfortable filmmaking which uses an impressive ensemble (Boyega, Poulter, Mitchell, Mackie) to bring home the force of state-sanctioned hatred and racism.

  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Francis Lee
  • Written by: Francis Lee
  • Cast: Josh O'Connor, Alec Secareanu, Gemma Jones

Johnny (O’Connor) is a young Yorkshireman living with his sour grandmother (Jones) and disgruntled father (Hart), whose life is turned upside-down by the arrival of Romanian migrant Ghoerghe (Secareanu). Fluid photography and achingly honest performances make for a transformative drama about the possibility of a better life.

mother!

Mother!
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris

The wife (Lawrence) of a poet (Bardem) live in a vast house in the middle of nowhere, until their life is interrupted by a surgeon (Harris), his wife (Pfeiffer) and their violent sons. Lawrence is astonishing, but other than that it’s an infuriating exercise in noisy style over substance.

On Body and Soul

On Body and Soul
  • 2017
  • 1h 56min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Ildikó Enyedi
  • Cast: Géza Morcsányi, Alexandra Borbély, Zoltán Schneider

An unusual love story set in the everyday world, based around the duality of sleeping and waking, mind and matter. As the title suggests, it's a film that revels as much in the physical as the spiritual. One minute, we're in dreamland, the next we're watching a graphic shot of a cow being dismembered in the slaughterhouse (vegetarians be warned). David Lynch, perhaps, would approve.

  • Directed by: Jung Byung-gil
  • Cast: Kim Ok-Bin, Sung Joon

Merciless killer Sook-hee (Kim) is recruited by Korean intelligence to be a top operative, and seeks revenge on the murderer of her father. The breathtaking and bloody action sequences serve the story, and Kim is brilliantly showcased as an ass-kicking heroine who deserves her own franchise.

Wind River

Wind River
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Taylor Sheridan
  • Cast: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille

Cory Lambert (Renner) is a wildlife officer used to tracking predators, who teams up with rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Olsen) to solve a murder in Wind River Indian Reservation. For all the sensitive handling of Native American issues, the dialogue is hokey, the Olsen character is underwritten and there’s too much focus on Renner’s character.
