120 BPM

120 Bpm
  • 2017
  • France
  • 2h 20min
  • Directed by: Robin Campillo
  • Cast: Arnaud Valois, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, Adèle Haenel

Exhilarating 90s-set drama following a group of activists who are members of an AIDS awareness group, Act Up-Paris. Campillo draws on his own experiences in the group, capturing the heady pleasures of dancing the night away in a club and the party atmosphere of a pride march, and the film as a whole is a near-tangible celebration of life and love.

Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
  • Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto

Blade Runner K (Gosling) is tasked with finding replicants who are passing themselves off as human, but then he makes an earth-shattering, game-changing discovery. Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Scott’s original is beautiful, powerful and relevant; Gosling is exceptional, and Ford steals the show as the ageing but still gruff and quick-witted Deckard. A triumph.

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club
  • 1985
  • US
  • 1h 37min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Hughes
  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason, Anthony Michael Hall, John Kapelos, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy

The film that helped launch the Brat Pack, which ain't a compliment. Five American teenagers – punk, swot, nut case, etc – spend a Saturday afternoon in school detention, where they go through a tribal bonding experience while spewing all manner of teen angst: it's all my parents fault and other old chestnuts.

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Armando Iannucci
  • Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Palin, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Andrea Riseborough, Rupert Friend

When Joseph Stalin abruptly dies in 1953, his subordinates immediately start jockeying for the position of his replacement. The political backstabbing makes for maximum black comedy and exuberant farce, and the deft interplay of a gifted cast makes the whole film a consistent joy.

Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko
  • 2002
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Kelly
  • Written by: Richard Kelly
  • Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wyle, Maggie Gyllenhaal

Mesmerising science fiction fable in which teenage Donnie (Gyllenhaal) learns that the world will end very soon. A horror story, a Hughes-style coming-of-age tale, a dark satire on Reaganite greed, selfishness and hypocrisy, and an affecting meditation on the choices we make, it's one of the best films of the 00s.

Fantastic Mr Fox

Fantastic Mr Fox
  • 2009
  • USA
  • 1h 28min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Wes Anderson
  • Cast: George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray

Anderson's inspired choice of stop-motion animation pays off in this beautiful and idiosyncratic adaptation of the well-loved children's tale. While kids may enjoy it, Anderson's typically arch humour is aimed more at their parents, who will also be impressed by the star-studded voice cast – Bill Murray as a badger lawyer anyone?

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • 1986
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Hughes
  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Matthew Broderick, Mia Sara, Alan Ruck

A sunny spring day in Chicago is far too good to spend locked in a classroom so the irrepressible Ferris Bueller feigns a malady, cuts classes and promises his two best friends a day to remember. Characteristically Hughes teen comedy that scores with fresh dialogue and appealing characterisations, but has the drawback of some laboured farce and a misguided tendency to make meaningful statements.

Fish Tank

Fish Tank
  • 2009
  • UK
  • 2h 2min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andrea Arnold
  • Written by: Andrea Arnold
  • Cast: Katie Jarvis, Kierston Wareing, Michael Fassbender

Living in a small flat on a sprawling Essex council estate with her single mum (Wareing) and younger sister, angry and aggressive 15-year-old Mia (Jarvis) finds herself inexplicably drawn, with disastrous results, to her mother's new boyfriend, the confident and seemingly kind Connor (Fassbender). A brilliantly displaced portrait of our underclass, one that asks us not to moralise but to find beauty in the consumptive. Miss at your peril.

I Am Not A Witch

I Am Not A Witch
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: Rungano Nyoni
  • Cast: Margaret Mulubwa, Gloria Huwiler, Ritah Mubanga, Dyna Mufuni

Nine-year-old Shula (Mulubwa) is accused of being a witch, and the authorities in Lusaka place her in a witch camp. Mulubwa is a compelling presence as the sullen, inscrutable Shula, but more clarity in explaining what ultimately happens to her might have made it more accessible.

  • 2017
  • France / Belgium
  • 1h 37min

Quirky comedy drama that has been compared to Francis Ha.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 2h 21min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
  • Written by: Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

After the Kingsman HQ is destroyed, street kid-turned-superspy Eggsy (Egerton) and gadget man Merlin (Strong) team up with their US equivalents to defeat drug baroness Poppy (Moore). Vaughan and Goldman turn up the preposterous comic book shenanigans at the expense of charm and basic plausibility, but fans will like it.

  • US
  • 1h 51min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

Lipitz celebrates the cross-generational relationships, delivering an uplifting and beautiful film about the power of female solidarity.
