Moffie

4 out of 5 stars
Film Drama

A viciously homophobic South African military training camp in 1981 is no place to be considering and exploring your sexuality like any teen might – but that’s exactly where 18-year-old Nicholas (Kai Luke Brummer) finds himself for the majority of ‘Moffie’. Writer-director Oliver Hermanus (‘Beauty’, ‘Shirley Adams’) gives us an atmospheric and extremely tense war film that features little actual war – although there’s plenty of threat and conflict to go around. 

Where to stream it: Curzon Home Cinema

Extraction

3 out of 5 stars
Film

Until recently, Netflix might have been hoping this watchable but workmanlike action-thriller would draw in viewers fresh from a new Bond movie and looking to plonk down on their sofas and re-up on stunts, shadowy killers and a jaded protagonist fond of a drink or two. Fast forward a couple of months and – thanks to the lockdown – ‘Extraction’ is the new Bond film – or at least, as close as we’re going to get to it. Which, for all its muscular action sequences and extravagant pyrotechnics, is not very.
