BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

The Children Act

The Children Act
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Richard Eyre
  • Cast: Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Fionn Whitehead

Fiona (Thompson) is a High Court judge who finds herself becoming involved with a Jehovah’s Witness teenager (Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion for his leukaemia. Heavy-handed adaptation by McEwan of his own novel; not entirely convincing but Eyre brings out fine performances.

Cold War

Cold War
  • 2018
  • Poland / France / UK
  • Directed by: Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Jeanne Balibar

In 1949 Poland, Wiktor (Kot) is given the job of starting a folk music and dance academy, where he falls for Zula (Kulig). Pawlikowski’s film, dedicated to his own parents, is shot in ravishing black and white and is a stunning love story, steeped in song and emotion and exquisitely crafted.

  • 1h 29min
  • Directed by: JR, Agnès Varda
  • Cast: Agnès Varda, JR

Director Agnès Varda and photographer JR go on a road trip through France, intending to send home postcards that gather the history of the places they visit. Varda’s mischievousness and empathy radiate throughout, and the pair’s cross-generational friendship is enriching, inspiring and irrestistible.

The House with a Clock in its Walls

The House with a Clock in its Walls
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eli Roth
  • Cast: Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Owen Vaccaro

Lewis (Vaccaro) is an orphan sent to live with his mysterious uncle Jonathan (Black). Roth takes a break from gore to turn this children’s book into family fare, and it’s atmospheric, but lacks charm; still, Black is great casting and the themes of grief and bravery are handled well.

The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger
  • 2018
  • Ireland/UK/France
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lenny Abrahamson
  • Cast: Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter

Dr Faraday (Gleeson) returns to Hundreds Hall, which he knew as a boy, to help care for the war-wounded family son (Poulter), but there seems to be a supernatural presence. Gleeson gives a career-best turn as the haunted Faraday but while it’s laudably subtle it’s also narratively inert.

The Predator

The Predator
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Shane Black
  • Cast: Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane

A Predator comes to Earth, pursued by others of his kind, and humans are caught in the middle. Black’s reboot of the franchise lacks his usual vim, there are too many set pieces with no time to engage, and there’s next to no tension. It’s neither visceral enough for the fans, nor engaging enough for the rest of us.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.
