Brazil

Fortunately the story of an alternative future is realised with such visual imagination and sparky humour that it's only half way through that the plot's weaknesses become apparent. Like 1984, it looks forward from the '40s to a vast urban society ru...

The Selfish Giant

Rating: 4/5

‘The Selfish Giant’ shares its title with an Oscar Wilde children’s tale, but this unflinching, moving story of two Bradford boys who steal copper, illegally race ponies and flirt worryingly with danger all day long is rooted in a very real, modern B...

Starred Up

Rating: 3/5

The industrious and prolific British writer-director David Mackenzie has been plugging away on the fringes of the film industry for well over a decade now, producing work both beloved (‘Young Adam’, ‘Hallam Foe’) and derided (‘Spread’, ‘You Instead’)...

Tabloid

Rating: 4/5

Feel your eyes widen and widen as seminal American documentary-maker Errol Morris (‘The Thin Blue Line’) leads you teasingly through the weirder-than-weird tale of Joyce McKinney, a glamour model and former Miss Wyoming from North Carolina who briefl...

Traffic Department (Drogowka)

In a police department where alcohol, drugs, sex and bribery are the norm, one policeman doesn't know where to turn when he is falsely accused of murdering a fellow officer. Lightning fast editing crams enough plot developments to fill a mini series...

The Unknown Known

Rating: 3/5

Dealing with the subject of wordplay (and, obliquely, criminality), Errol Morris convinces slippery former US secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld to sit for his latest documentary. It’s a companion piece to his other political post-game interview, ‘...

Walking with Dinosaurs 3D

Rating: 3/5

The BBC’s groundbreaking 1999 CGI wildlife series about the prehistoric era, which spawned global TV sales and a massive marketing industry, now reaches the big screen – with significantly reduced educational fibre and a story template familiar from...

The Zero Theorem

Rating: 3/5

Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ is a lo-fi, future-tech farce with an air of high-end cyber panto. The stars still come out for the director of ‘Brazil’, and a totally bald Christoph Waltz (‘Django Unchained’) features in every scene as Qohen Leth...

Hitchcock

Rating: 3/5

He was the world’s most famous film director, yet Alfred Hitchcock gambled his reputation on a horror pic deemed so toxic by Hollywood that he had to bankroll it himself. ‘Psycho’ was the epoch-changing result, and this fact-based drama zooms in on i...

The Lego Movie

Rating: 4/5

With one obvious exception, toy stories do not have the luckiest big-screen pedigree: the results are often either sugary cartoons for undemanding kids or noisy blockbusters for brain-dead teens. If the producers of ‘The LEGO Movie’ had taken either...

Mr Peabody & Sherman

Rating: 2/5

Elderly American readers may recall this cartoon duo from a series of educational inserts slotted into 1960s episodes of TV’s ‘The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show’, in which hyper-intelligent canine polymath Mr Peabody and his knowledge-hungry adopted son...

The Past

Rating: 2/5

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s last film, the Oscar-winning ‘A Separation’ (2011), was a taut, subtle drama centred on a well-off Tehran couple going through a divorce. Farhadi’s style is immediate and intense: he employs an unadorned realism to t...

A Separation

Rating: 4/5

In the UK, we’re used to seeing Iranian films that offer a sideways or restricted view of life or cinema – films from the likes of Abbas Kiarostami or Jafar Panahi. The latter sent a new work, ‘This is Not a Film’, to Cannes this year in defiance of...

Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy

Rating: 3/5

Goody two-wings Tinker Bell (who’s had a personality transplant since JM Barrie wrote her as a sneaky little minx in ‘Peter Pan’) is back for another Disney cartoon adventure. This time around ‘Mad Men’ star Christina Hendricks is the voice of rebell...

Under the Skin

Rating: 5/5

ET landed in the cosy American suburbs and wanted to go home. Now Scarlett Johansson – or something that looks like her – lands in modern Glasgow and thinks about sticking around in Jonathan Glazer’s creepy, mysterious and bold ‘Under the Skin’. One...
