(Dir. Armando Iannucci, UK 2017, 104mins 15)

No awards for probably the best British film of the year. Great cast and acting in an irreverent, violent, uproarious satire on the Soviet power struggle occasioned by the death of the dictator Stalin 1953. So good Russia banned it.

Dir. Ildiko Enyedi (Hungary 2017, 116mins 15)

Film of the year? Great originality, exquisite and beautifully composed direction in an eccentric but moving romantic and sometimes brutal drama that has the look of an Edward Hopper painting about how two people connect with each other in life and in dreams in a love without rules. The winner of the Berlin prize and Hungary's Oscar entry for best foreign language film.

Dir. David Butler (US 1953, 101mins U)

Shout it from the highest hill, the Deadwood stagecoach is coming over the black hills of Holmfirth. An entirely enjoyable whip-crack-away, gun totin', technicolour Doris Day musical. Sing-along it's no secret anymore...

Prize for best dressed cowgirl of the night.

A force-of-nature performance from Jessica Chastain in the Bafta nominated true story of Molly Brown, the glamourous former Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker games before being arrested by the FBI. Scorching dialogue from Sorkin in his directorial debut.

IL POSTINO (The Postman) IS PART OF 2019'S LADIES WOT LUNCH EVENT.

Re-released and remastered, this is one of the most romantic films ever made. Set in a beautiful looking 1950s' Italy, a moving tale of poetry, love and friendship, made ever more poignant by the knowledge that the actor Massimo Trisosi, playing the poorly-educated Postman, died the day after filming ended.

Dir. Massimo Triosi, Michael Radford (Italy 1994 114mins 12)

Rare screening for what is often cited as the greatest war film ever made and the model for many films in that genre. Shot in Cambodia as the US involvement in the Vietnam War was beginning, the writer/director draws on his own experiences as a French soldier in the Indo-China war in 1954 and as a war photographer.

 

Dir. Pierre Schoenderffer (France 1965, 100mins 12)

If you haven't seen it or have only seen it five times, here is the most popular and entertaining film of the year. Rami Malek as Freddy Mercury is extraordinary. A film that borders on kitsch somehow manages to turn into a thrilling and meaningful movie.

 

Dir. Bryan Singer (US 2018, 133mins 12)
