  • 1h 46min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Lauren Greenfield
  • Cast: Limo Bob, Florian Homm, Tiffany Masters

Documentary from the director of The Queen of Versailles which investigates the disproportionate distribution of wealth across the world. Despite Greenfield's keen eye, a lack of focus and ham-handed comparisons to her personal life leads to some hackneyed conclusions.

Hereditary

  • Directed by: Ari Aster
  • Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Tom (McKenzie) is the teenage daughter of Will (Foster), a traumatised military veteran who sells on his own PTSD medication and takes her from place to place, refusing to settle down.

McQueen

McQueen
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
  • Cast: Alexander McQueen

Elegant documentary on the working-class London lad who became chief designer at Givenchy, combining behind-the-scenes footage with archive comments and fresh interviews, looking at the grief caused by the loss of close friend Isabella Blow and his beloved mother. Informative, engrossing but never maudlin.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8

  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

Lyn (Scanlan) is an eccentric mother who moves to a new Midlands town with her teenage daughter Iona (Newmark), but the pair’s close bond is threatened when Iona makes friends with school bully Keeley (Cordy-Nice). Despite the whimsical surface it delivers brutal truths about female experience, as well as the power of love and connection.

Sicario 2: Soldado
  • 2018
  • US/Italy
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stefano Sollima
  • Cast: Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Isabela Moner

Federal agent Graver (Brolin) brings his operative Alejandro (Del Toro) back into the fold as the operation shifts from drug-smuggling to human trafficking. This world-weary sequel has the authenticity of the first film but is more predictable, and it never really convinces us to care about the issues it prioritises.

Strangers on a Train

Strangers on a Train
  • 1951

Classic Hitchcock about two strangers who concoct a plan to each murder someone on behalf of the other, thus committing the 'perfect crime'.

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.

Whitney

Whitney
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 2h

  • Directed by: Kevin Macdonald
  • Cast: Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown,

Clear-sighted, compassionate portrait of Whitney Houston, which derives its strength from the range of testimony it’s collected, from family members, surly former husband Brown, film co-stars and assorted siblings and loved ones. It reminds us of her thrilling, spine-tingling voice while bringing revelations that many of her troubles lay in childhood trauma.
