    I hesitate to call this fascinating, slippery film an ‘experimental documentary’ in case it sends people who would otherwise enjoy its storytelling trickery and moving subject running for ‘Paranormal Activity 2’. It’s true that Clio Barnard revisi...

    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...

    This nerve-shredding German thriller begins in the pulsing white light of a nightclub strobe and spends the next two hours taking us on a tour of Berlin as day breaks over the city. We follow a young Spanish woman, Victoria (Laia Costa, excellent)...

    The ring of truth sounds quietly, and sometimes not at all, in Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth', the Italian auteur's occasionally dazzling but low-key and rambling follow-up to 2013's 'The Great Beauty'. It's his second English-language film after 2009...

    'The King's Speech' director Tom Hooper has given the story of transsexual 1920s Danish artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne, convincingly pretty and fragile) and his wife Gerda (Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, often out of her depth), a decorous...

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?
