  • 2009
  • US
  • 122 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Werner Herzog
  • Written by: William Finkelstein
  • Cast: Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Jennifer Coolidge, Val Kilmer, Brad Dourif, Xzibit, Fairuza Balk

New Orleans police sergeant Terence McDonagh (Cage) saves a drowning prisoner, earning him a promotion and a back injury. Addiction follows and as things spiral out of control momentum and perception change and nothing goes the way one might expect. Repeated viewing is necessary, cult status is guaranteed.

Ballerina

Ballerina
  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

The story of Ray Kroc (Keaton), a salesman who turned the burger restaurant of Dick and Mac McDonald (Offerman & Carroll Lynch) into the biggest fast food enterprise in the world. Keaton is on fire as the grasping, ruthless Kroc and it's a fascinating study in ambition.

  • Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Shun Li and the Poet (Io sono Li)

Shun Li and the Poet (Io sono Li)
  • 2011
  • Italy/France
  • 100 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrea Segre
  • Cast: Tao Zhao, Rade Serbedzija, Marco Paolini

Chinese single mother Shun Li (Zhao Tao) is an immigrant in Italy, who while tending a bar in a small coastal town befriends a widowed Slavic fisherman (Serbedzija). This debut fiction feature from Italian documentary-maker Segre is a delicately observed exploration of themes of immigration, belonging and economic change.

Silence

Silence
  • 2016
  • US / Taiwan / Mexico
  • 161 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and contemplation.

Toni Erdmann

Toni Erdmann
  • 2017
  • Germany, Austria
  • 162 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Maren Ade
  • Cast: Peter Simonischek, Sandra Hüller, Michael Wittenborn

When Winfried (Simonischek) visits his adult daughter Ines (Hüller) in Romania, he thinks that she takes life too seriously, and decides to play pranks on her. Superlative third feature from German writer-director Ade, ranging from flamboyantly lunatic comedy to a wonderfully natural, textured portrait of the parent-child relationship. Inimitable and unforgettable.

T2 Trainspotting

T2 Trainspotting
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.
