The Beguiled

The Beguiled
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sofia Coppola
  • Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning

John McBurney (Farrell) is a wounded Union deserter in the US Civil War who winds up in a school for girls, where headmistress Martha (Kidman) is persuaded to show him kindness. Coppola’s remake of Don Siegel’s sweaty 1971 original plays like meticulously crafted high-camp melodrama; intermittently enjoyable, but rushed and flustered.

Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo Detstvo)

Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo Detstvo)
  • 1962
  • USSR
  • 1h 35min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Andrei Tarkovsky
  • Written by: Vladimir Bogomolov, Mikhail Papava
  • Cast: Nikolai Burlyayev, Valentin Zubkov, Yevgeni Zharikov, Stepan Krylov, Nikolai Grinko, Irma Raush

Gleaming new print of Tarkovsky's debut feature, now looking more impressive than ever. The narrative revolves around a teenage WW2 spy, travelling through the country behind enemy lines. Characteristically breathtaking imagery and an aching sense of spirituality springs naturally from this simple drama of childhood. It is all a far cry from the grandiose and metaphysical reach of this great filmmaker's later work. Essential viewing.

  • Directed by: Joel Schumacher
  • Written by: Janice Fischer, James Jeremias, Jeffrey Boam
  • Cast: Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Corey Haim, Edward Herrmann, Barnard Hughes, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Dianne Wiest

Anaemic comic horror as a Santa Monica teen falls into bad company in the shape of a mad, bad and dangerous-to-know gang of vampires. Constant MTV visuals make this an altogether resistible affair.

  • US
  • 1h 48min

  • Directed by: Douglas Sirk
  • Written by: Robert Blees

My Life As A Dog

My Life As A Dog
  • 1985
  • Sweden
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström
  • Written by: Lasse Hallström, Reidar Jönsson (novel), Brasse Brännström, Per Berglund
  • Cast: Anton Glanzelius, Tomas von Brömssen

Wholly captivating rite of passage tale set in Sweden during the 1950s. Twelve-year-old Ingemar copes with his mother's terminal illness and his family's general indifference to him by indulging in a high fantasy life, including the pretence that he is a dog. Terrible title, wonderful, unmissable film.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
  • 2016
  • France
  • 2h 2min
  • Directed by: Jérôme Salle
  • Cast: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou

Biopic of underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau (Wilson), focusing on his strained relationship with his son. It looks fantastic, but becomes bogged down in soap opera conventions and biopic cliché, with characters such as Cousteau’s long-suffering wife Simone (Tautou) pushed to the sidelines.

Shrek

Shrek
  • 2001
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • U
  • Directed by: Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson
  • Written by: Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Joe Stillman, Roger S H Schulman
  • Cast: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Lithgow

Shrek will have Walt Disney turning in his cryogenic freeze tank. This truly subversive animated film takes pot shots at fairytale mythology, while singling out Uncle Walt's beloved Snow White, Cinderella, Pinocchio, et al. Under the guise of a quest to rescue a princess from a dragon undertaken by the eponymous green ogre (which kids will love), Shrek also ruthlessly pillages corporate Disney, satirising its theme parks and executives. And who's behind all this? Producer Jeffrey Katzenberg of Disney rival studio DreamWorks, also formerly head of, yep, Disney.
