In the Family

  • Rated as: 5/5

The cream always rises to the top. Case in point: Patrick Wang’s truly wondrous indie, which the multihyphenate writer-director-actor initially distributed himself after multiple festival rejections. It played for a week in Manhattan late last year and is now reopening after a rising tide of critical support... 

Third Person

  • Rated as: 2/5

Hero or villain, writer-director Paul Haggis divides: he’s either the guy whose middlebrow ‘Crash’ stole the Oscar from ‘Brokeback Mountain’ or the writer of the brutally effective ‘Million Dollar Baby’. All the flavours of Haggis are present in this cringe-inducing romantic drama, which skips from New York to Paris and Rome... 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

  • Rated as: 4/5

This is the film where it’s all meant to go horribly wrong for ‘The Hunger Games’. By chopping the trilogy’s final book into two, this second-to-last film should be more drag than drama – the cash-machine episode everyone knows just a teaser for next year’s epic send-off...

The Drop

  • Rated as: 3/5

European actors do an uneven job of bringing a 'hey-yous-guys' Brooklyn crime drama to life in the English-language debut of Belgian director Michaël R Roskam. The film's distinctly working-class Catholic vibe is best attributed to novelist-screenwriter Dennis Lehane whose script probably worked better on the page...

Love Is Strange

  • Rated as: 5/5

New York-based filmmaker Ira Sachs creates a special kind of urbanity: softer and more inclusive than Woody Allen's, openly gay but family-focused, alive to the city's tensions and lulls. 'Love Is Strange' emerges as a total triumph for Sachs and his co-leads, John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, who turn in career-topping work...

Serena

  • Rated as: 2/5

It’s third time unlucky for Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. The Hollywood A-team is back with a C+ movie. ‘Serena’ isn’t terrible, but it’s no ‘American Hustle’ or ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. To be fair to J-Coop, they act their socks off. And this must have looked like a winner on paper... 

’71

  • Rated as: 3/5

Belfast, 1971, and Gary, a young private in the British army, is thrown in at the deep end of the Troubles; more than that, his hands are tied and there are bricks in his pocket. This quiet lad from Derbyshire has barely been in Belfast a day when he finds himself in the middle of a violent street riot... 

Interstellar

  • Rated as: 5/5

Christopher Nolan’s overwhelming, immersive and time-bending space epic ‘Interstellar’ makes Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Gravity’ feel like a palate cleanser for the big meal to come. Where ‘Gravity’ was brief, ‘Interstellar’ is long, grand, strange and demanding...
