Bunch of Kunst: A Film about the Sleaford Mods

Dir. Christine Frantz, UK, 2017

Just released documentary on the two year journey from a Nottingham bedroom to Britain's angriest band. Their brutally honest lyrics and uncompromising stance make them the only band today of any relevance. Unmissable.

Girl Asleep

Dir. Rosemary Myers, Australia, 2017


Really charming Australian coming-of-age drama that is surreal, offbeat and big-hearted in the style of Wes Anderson. A little gem that signposts Director Myers and teenage actress, Bethany Whitmore, as talents for the future.

The Wild and the Willing - dramatic film debut for Ian McShane and John Hurt

Dir. Ralph Thomas, UK, 1962


Real life friends, Manchester's 20 year-old Ian McShane ('a real discovery') and 21 year-old John Hurt ('a sensitive roommate'), make their film debuts in this early sixties drama about students and their lives in a provincial University (Lincoln). Tame now but entertaining.

The Salesman

Dir. Asghar Farhadi, Iran/France, 2016

Best Foreign Film Oscar winner. One of the world's best directors with a potent, intelligent and suspenseful plot, turning the mysteries of personality into a gripping and disquieting drama.


Dir. Garth Davis, Australia/US

Uplifting and moving true story of the journey of an Indian street-child to adopted Australia is an excellent family drama full of mystery and romance, and a whirlwind of emotions with fine performances from Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.
