    Critic, writer and filmmaker Mark Cousins continues his run of highly personal movie essays with this typically warm-hearted, eccentric doc about his birth city of Belfast. It’s history in the loosest sense: Cousins imagines Belfast as a woman (He...

    Family, food, love, work, life and death are all on the menu in 'Our Little Sister'. This irresistible, light-filled family drama from Japanese writer-director Hirokazu Kore-eda ('I Wish', 'Still Walking') brims with small moments and slips down a...

    A one-time assistant to the director Béla Tarr, 38-year-old Hungarian filmmaker László Nemes has made a staggering feature debut with 'Son of Saul', an Auschwitz-set drama that's numbing, provocative and impossible to unsee. Set over 24 hours in 1...

My favourite cinema in London, hands-down. Tucked-away in a railway arch on a very unassuming street near Loughborough Junction, this place is a cosy haven from the outside world, showing a brilliant selection of films. Don't expect blockbusters, do expect carefully chosen gems. There's also a bar, which is kind of essential in a cinema these days, don't you think? It's an independent, membership cinema, but membership is well worth purchasing and you get to bring guests along for next-to-nothing. And you can order from nearby Firezze Ppizza, which gets delivered to the cinema. Pizza delivery, in a cinema. And a bar. And great films. It's the dream, surely?
