- Kayla is exactly the wrong girl to be posting YouTube videos about ‘confidence’ or ‘being yourself’, but you'll absolutely love her for trying. As played in the sweetly sympathetic ‘Eighth Grade’ by then-13-year-old Elsie Fisher (hatching a guilel...Read more
- This comedy-drama from Iceland asks some timely biggies about the climate change movement in its story about an ordinary woman with a secret double life as an environmental activist. The film has a bone-dry sense of humour, though the quirk level ...Read more
- It’s always a pleasure to watch someone do something exceptionally well, so this French documentary provides a real treat when it shows John McEnroe in his prime, technical brilliance and famed belligerence both in full flow. But director Julien F...Read more
- With his blistering debut, ‘Son of Saul’, László Nemes used shallow focus and point-of-view camerawork to plunge into the hellscape of Auschwitz. For his follow-up, a strange and elliptical mystery set during the dying embers of the Austro-Hungari...Read more
- Uniquely personal yet undisciplined as a portrait of Vincent van Gogh’s final years, ‘At Eternity’s Gate’ benefits from staying close to its subject, almost invasively so. A possessed and startlingly soft Willem Dafoe plays the painter – an unorth...Read more
- For a film named after an act of gender subversion, there’s not too much exploration of gender in Jamie Patterson’s odd-couple drama. ‘Tucked’ contorts itself to assure us that terminally ill, 80-something drag queen Jackie (Derren Nesbitt) is a s...Read more
- ‘Taboo,’ sings a shorn Robert Pattinson to a gurgling infant in ‘High Life’. Leave it to the gutsy French director Claire Denis (making her English-language debut) to dissect her latest movie with a single word. Taboos abound in the elusive, ellip...Read more

The films being shown at this cinema are carefully curated. I chose to go there because this Curzon was the only place showing the one I wanted to see (a Werner Herzog documentary) at a conveninent time. The ticket prices are also reasonable.
However, the cinema's space is very confusing. Long corridors along two subterranean floors, with minimal information as to where each one leads makes the experience very claustrophobic. From what I understood the many screens in the cinema are divided into groups and named after people rather than just being numbered. To me the space could be less pretentious and have more practicality.
Still I really recommend this cinema because of the interesting selection of films on show.
