Dir. Michael Gracey (US 2017, 105mins PG)

The audience hit of the year. Auto-tuned and full of CGI, it makes no difference to the sensational reception of this exuberant celebration of the life of T.P. Barnum (Hugh Jackman). But don't forget the theme of discrimination, the excellent Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Keala Settle and the brilliant costumes of Ellen Mirojnick.

Dir. Henry Koster (US 1953, 98mins PG)

Marvellous passionate romance based on Daphne du Maurier's gothic novel about an anguished cousin (the first Hollywood role for Richard Burton) who tries to unravel the suspicious circumstances of the sudden death of his Cornish uncle, a man of property, and the involvement of his mysterious wife (Olivia de Havilland).

Wonderful, warm documentary on the life and work of folk music icon, Shirley Collins, who was central to the genre's revival in the 1960s through her rediscovery of old songs both here and in the United States. Now promoting a new highly praised album at the age of 82.

Hopi word for 'life out of balance'. Unforgettable cinematic experience with a brilliant Philip Glass soundtrack. Extensive footage of landscapes and elemental forces contrasted with modern cities and technology showing how humanity has grown apart from nature.

 

Dir. Godfrey Reggio (US 1983, 86mins PG - 12.30pm)

 

PLUS: Genre de Vie Documentary on urban life, personal awareness and the powerful simplicity of bicycles, keeping faithful to the subject; Smart Cities: Palo Alto city leaders explain the need to think differently about congestion, pollution and government using smart technology; Amsterdam children fighting cars: In 1972 children in the De Pijp district fought for a street free of cars. It is now tree lined. Wonderful.

Starring Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in their first film, this is a captivating adaption of J. L. Carr's novel set in Yorkshire in 1920 about former soldiers scarred by their experiences. Excellent English romanticism rarely seen but now re-released and remastered after the original print was feared lost.

Not the usual festival fair but this was one of the highlights of the year and for some critics deserved an Oscar. A smart, funny, intelligent and hugely entertaining spin on the Spiderman enterprise. A great film for all the family.

An extraordinary, unsettling and starkly imaginative version of the Lewis Carroll tale. Not only different to the other productions but by far the best. First aired on the BBC on 28 December 1966 and starring a whole host of 60s British actors, it challenges the notion that we are now living in the golden age of television.

Dir. Jonathan Miller (UK 1966, 70mins PG)

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle, nothing could prepare Dora for her most dangerous adventure yet -- high school. Accompanied by a ragtag group of teens and Boots the monkey, Dora embarks on a quest to save her parents while trying to solve the seemingly impossible mystery behind a lost Incan civilization.  A great success in the US and a hugely enjoyable family adventure comedy.  Our second family film for Saturday afternoon.
