Bridge of Spies

Dir. Steven Spielberg (USA 2015, 142mins 12A)
The sentimental Spielberg is not a usual festival contender but this non-cynical Cold War drama of an American lawyer defending a Soviet spy and helping the CIA in the subsequent spy-swap, is excellent and has a great script from the Coen brothers and top-flight performances from Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance and Alan Alda.

Timbuktu

Dir. Abderrahmane Sissako (Fr./Mauritania 2015, 97mins 12A)
Based on a real incident – the stoning to death of a young couple in Mali - this is definitely one of the films of the year. Timely, with a powerful message about religious intolerance the Cannes Festival award-winner is full of irony and poetry with breath-taking images
