12 Years a Slave

Rating: 5/5

With the release of ‘Django Unchained’ and now this more restrained slavery-era biopic, much has been made of America’s post-Obama willingness to ‘face up to its own past’. But, like Quentin Tarantino before him, British artist turned director Steve...

The Book Thief

Rating: 2/5

Narrated by Death himself (solemn-voiced Roger Allam) but, alas, not adapted by him, this sumptuous, faintly unrealistic version of Markus Zusak’s best-seller bypasses wartime horror at every juncture. Angelic orphan Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) arrives i...

Dallas Buyers Club

Rating: 4/5

It’s getting difficult (enjoyably so) to keep track of the many shades of life Matthew McConaughey is hell-bent on exploring these days. Conveniently – and a touch calculatingly – they’re all on display in the stirring ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, a one-sto...

The Innocents

Rating: 5/5

This near-perfect 1961 ghost story, adapted from Henry James’s 1898 novella ‘The Turn of the Screw’, has friends in high places. Martin Scorsese put it in his top ten list of nerve-janglers. ‘Beautifully crafted and acted, immaculately shot… and very...

Inside Llewyn Davis

Rating: 5/5

You can size up this blacker-than-black, early 1960s time capsule from the writer-directors of ‘The Big Lebowski’ and ‘No Country for Old Men’ from all sorts of angles. Is it a sideways look at a music scene? A melancholic but extremely funny riff on...

The Invisible Woman

Rating: 4/5

The title of Ralph Fiennes’s second film as a director makes it sound like a superhero movie. But the only special powers on display in this touching insight into the public and private lives of Charles Dickens are an enormous delicacy of touch and a...

Labor Day

Rating: 3/5

Here’s an idea for Her Majesty’s Prison Service to raise a few pennies: a rent-a-convict scheme. It works wonders for Kate Winslet in ‘Labor Day’. She plays depressed single-mum Adele, who takes in an escaped prisoner, Frank (Josh Brolin), over the L...

Lone Survivor

Rating: 3/5

Based on the book of the same name by ex-soldier Marcus Luttrell (played here by Mark Wahlberg), ‘Lone Survivor’ recalls a failed 2005 mission in Afghanistan, when four US Navy Seals were tasked with finding a head Taliban honcho. After some pedestri...

Nebraska

Rating: 4/5

Alexander Payne is the compassionate, thinking face of American comedy. With films like 'Sideways' and 'The Descendants', he tells laidback tales of people facing problems or changes in their lives. His new film 'Nebraska' is shot in black and white...

Out of the Furnace

Rating: 3/5

Has Christian Bale done the world a favour by hanging up his bat wings? He is everywhere at the moment, making his comeback as a character actor and reminding us there’s much more to him than a latex mask and whispery growl. Hilarious in ‘American Hu...
