Dir. Fisher Stevens, US, 2016

Wonderfully filmed, crucial, breath-taking, eye-opening documentary about the effects of climate change presented by Leonardo DiCaprio. It might have been depressing but it does offer a glimmer of hope and presents a case that even in the Holme Valley, a difference can be made.

Dir No Hong-jin, Korea, 2016

Suspicion leads to hysteria following the arrival of a mysterious stranger and series of brutal murders. The Koreans are producing great films at the moment and this intense horror thriller is one of the best films of the year.

Dir. John Carney, Ireland, UK, 2016

Coming of age comedy-drama about a Dublin teenager who forms a band to impress a girl. Crowd-pleasing, hugely-enjoyable, heart-melting, exhilarating film with a great '80s soundtrack.

Dir. Tom Ford (US 2016, 117mins 15)

This second feature from fashion designer/director Ford divides audiences and critics, though most thought it one of the best films of the year. It's a toxically delicious neo-noir psychological thriller, brilliant visually and narratively with fine performances from Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. And the ending?

Fri, 26/05/2017 - 7:30pm

Dir. Cristian Mungiu, Romania, 2016

We would do anything for our children, wouldn't we? A brilliant, masterly, complex tragedy of moral values that is utterly compelling. Out of the oppressive, corrupt Romanian regime comes a genuine five star film.
