La Maison de la Radio

Rating: 4/5

Love Is Strange

Rating: 5/5

New York-based filmmaker Ira Sachs ('Keep the Lights On') creates a special kind of urbanity: softer and more inclusive than Woody Allen's, openly gay but family-focused, alive to the city's tensions and lulls. His latest movie also features a Chopin...

Duck Soup

Rating: 5/5

As the world’s media debate the future of satire, it’s an opportune time for the BFI to release the Marx Brothers’s most barbed film, a silly-serious sideswipe against war, politics and the entire concept of heroism. First shown in 1933, as humanity...

A Bill of Divorcement

Skilfully canned version of Clemence Dane's terribly dated problem play about a shellshocked WWI veteran (possibly suffering from hereditary insanity) who returns from the asylum after 15 years to find his wife planning divorce and his daughter a str...

Christopher Strong

Early Hollywood movies (re)claimed for feminist film history sometimes require complex analysis to explain their relevance, but this teaming of Arzner and Hepburn is absolutely central to an understanding of women's place within classical Hollywood....

The Green Ray

Rating: 5/5

The late French New Wave pioneer Eric Rohmer shot ‘The Green Ray’ over the summer of 1985, and this deceptively light but enormously inquiring film is now seen as one of his masterpieces, along with 1969’s ‘My Night with Maud’ and 1983’s ‘Pauline at...

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Orphaned Harry (Radcliffe) is billeted in the suburbs with his cruel aunt and uncle until a blizzard of letters arrives from Hogwarts School offering a chance to study wizardry. He is yet to learn that he bears a famous name in that skill, and that t...

Die Marquise von O…

The Queen of Spades

Rating: 4/5

Pushkin’s marvellously histrionic tale of cupidity and terrible vengeance gets a suitably wild-eyed treatment in Thorold Dickinson’s 1949 film. In Tsarist Russia, Captain Herman Suvorin (Anton Walbrook) watches enviously as aristocratic officers lose...

In the Mouth of Madness

In this lightweight but entertaining horror movie, seasoned genre director Carpenter realises the Lovecraftian weirdness hinted at in the eerie atmospherics of The Fog and the monstrous excesses of The Thing: in short, the idea of an order of beings...

Ladies in Lavender

Here’s an odd wisp of heritage drama, adapted from a story by William J Locke and directed by journeyman actor Dance. He presents a formidable grande-dame pair – Judi Dench and Maggie Smith – as symbiotic sisters living out their twilight years in 19...

My House in Umbria

Maggie Smith has already won an Emmy for her performance in this pretty moderate cable movie. She’s in her usual commanding form as Emily Delahunty, prolific writer of romance novels, who offers her Umbrian mansion as a place of recuperation for the...

The Aviator's Wife

The first in Rohmer's series Comédies et Proverbes, this gentle comedy laced with pain is a delight from start to finish. Erroneously assuming that his more experienced girlfriend is being unfaithful, a young student decides to investigate the identi...

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Rating: 2/5

Has Provence been outsourced to Jaipur? If ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ is anything to go by, it seems that, along with computer programming and call centres, the new Indian economy covers picturesque getaways for middle-aged, middle-class, middl...
