The Cool School

Rating: 3/5

Morgan Neville’s ‘The Cool School’ is a slickly packaged document of the burgeoning modern art scene in LA during the late ’50s and early ’60s which sadly submerges its fascinating subject matter in technical clutter and contrived set-ups. Abstract e...

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Venus in Fur

Rating: 4/5

Welcome to Roman Polanski's hall of mirrors. David Ive's play 'Venus in Fur' is a two-hander, set in a theatre, about a director auditioning an actress for a play based on a novel – a tricksy, teasing story about dominance and submission. As if that...
