  • US/UK
  • 1h 56min
  • Directed by: Bart Layton
  • Cast: Evan Peters, Ann Dowd, Blake Jenner
  • UK release: 7 September 2018

A group of young men plan and execute a heist of a university library in 2004. A masterfully balanced and insightful blend of drama and documentary, with a dramatization of the heist interspersed with interviews with the real participants; the two styles should work against each other but they complement each other…

  • Directed by: Joe Cornish
  • Written by: Joe Cornish
  • Cast: Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, Simon Howard, Luke Treadaway, Jumayn Hunter, Nick Frost

This directorial debut from Joe Cornish (one half of 'Adam-and-Joe') is rather less of a comic affair than you might expect, with proper scares and a gripping sci-fi storyline in which a gang of urban teens defend their tower block from an army of bloodthirsty aliens. Some of the young cast are a little shaky, but leads…

Vintage northern kitchen sink drama based on Keith Waterhouse's popular book.

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver).

  • 1h 35min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gaspar Noé
  • Cast: Sofia Boutella, Romain Guillermic, Souheila Yacoub
  • UK release: 21 September 2018

A dance troupe comes together to rehearse for a tour, but during the break someone spikes the sangria with acid and things quickly get weird. Noé’s fifth feature is as mixed-up as ever (opening credits halfway through, end credits at the start) and it aims to be the ultimate bad trip movie, but ultimately it’s both…

  • 5 stars
  • 2018
  • Poland / France / UK
  • Directed by: Pawel Pawlikowski
  • Cast: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc, Jeanne Balibar

In 1949 Poland, Wiktor (Kot) is given the job of starting a folk music and dance academy, where he falls for Zula (Kulig). Pawlikowski’s film, dedicated to his own parents, is shot in ravishing black and white and is a stunning love story, steeped in song and emotion and exquisitely crafted.

The Great Buddha+

  • 15

This beautifully-made, shrewdly-amusing and award-winning Taiwanese film is a real pleasure, featuring oddball characters drawn together by the class system. Local scavenger Belly Bottom (Bamboo Chen) likes hanging out with his buddy Pickle (Cres Chuang), who works as a security guard at a company that makes giant statues…

The Little Stranger

  • 3 stars
  • 2018
  • Ireland/UK/France
  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lenny Abrahamson
  • Cast: Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter
  • UK release: 21 September 2018

Dr Faraday (Gleeson) returns to Hundreds Hall, which he knew as a boy, to help care for the war-wounded family son (Poulter), but there seems to be a supernatural presence. Gleeson gives a career-best turn as the haunted Faraday but while it’s laudably subtle it’s also narratively inert.

Lucky

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 28min
  • Directed by: John Carroll Lynch
  • Cast: Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr

Lucky (Stanton) is a committed atheist who takes a quiet pleasure in his daily routines, while coming to terms with his mortality. Debut director Lynch downplays the drama, resting the film on Stanton’s cantankerous, charming performance and his interactions with others. An elegant and moving meditation on life and death…

  • UK release: 21 September 2018

Documentary about rapper M.I.A., aka Maya Arulpragasam, from her formative years on a London council estate to the present.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

  • 1h 30min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Desiree Akhavan
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Jennifer Ehle, Marin Ireland
  • UK release: 31 August 2018

When Cameron (Moretz) is discovered being intimate with another girl in the back of her boyfriend’s car, she’s shipped off a Christian ‘conversion’ camp. The screenplay avoids cliché and treats all the characters with empathy, and Moretz’s subtle strength is balanced by Lane’s resigned sarcasm as a fellow inmate.

  • Cast: Brady Jandreau, Tim Jandreau, Lilly Jandreau
  • UK release: 14 September 2018

Brady (Jandreau) is a South Dakotan bronco rider whose head has been stapled together following a rodeo accident, and who must face that another fall could kill him. Zhao uses non-professional actors to great effect, and the film broods with unforced inner tension and lyric naturalism.

Lonely Shaun (Turgoose), a 12-year-old boy growing up in the era of Thatcherism, race riots and The Falklands War, falls in with skinheads.
