    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 humani...

    Parents who take their little ones along to this big-screen ‘Big Knights’ experience may initially feel a little ripped off. This isn’t a new feature-length adaptation of the BBC series, first shown over the Christmas period in 1999, but just a bu...

    ‘Cemetery of Splendor’ is the latest dreamy wonder from Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul (he helpfully shortens his name to ‘Joe’ if you find it a bit of a mouthful). The story, such as it is, concerns a group of soldiers in clinic who’ve a...

    As things go bump in the night in ‘Under the Shadow’ you might find yourself jumping out of your seat or grabbing the person next to you. This smart, terrifying and brilliantly feminist Farsi horror is the UK’s first entry in 25 years for the Best...

    This Belgian film bravely wanders on to the bloody battlefield of a separating family, and the effect is extremely powerful, if far from pretty. Writer-director Joachim Lafosse has intelligently delved into the politics of the household before: fi...

    Snarling and loud, Jim Jarmusch’s new doc about Iggy Pop and the Stooges takes a fairly brief period of time – seven years, three now-classic albums, multiple break-ups and several drug addictions – and turns it into something heartfelt. At the ce...

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?
