The Shape of Water
Guillermo del Toro is back to his best with this film, a haunting and beautiful love story that extends beyond the realms of traditional romance.
This slow-burning and deeply unsettling psychological chamber piece from Chile will divide opinions no doubt but even those offended by the film’s content will have to agree that the performances here are not only impressive but make for a memorable experience... which ever way you may look upon the movie.
The Mercy tells the fascinating story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst's ill-fated voyage.
A cross cultural trip that falls flat on its face due to empty stereotypes, poor scripting and below average ideas.
This Beautiful Fantastic
This Beautiful Fantastic tells the story of Bella Brown (Jessica Brown Findlay), a peculiar librarian loner, who has ruptured the nerve of her self-proclaimed ‘nemesis’ neighbour, Alfie (Tom Wilkinson), through her apprehensive unwillingness to tackle the overgrown muddle that once resembled her back garden.
Disturbing, politically complex, and based on true events: Árpád Sopsits’ bleak thriller won 9 Hungarian film awards and re-opens history in more ways than just one.
To the Devil a Daughter
It should have been inevitable that Hammer would make another film based on a Dennis Wheatley black magic novel after the success of the tense and excellent THE DEVIL RIDES OUT. For some reasons it was nine years before this occurred and the result is the inferior TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER from 1976.
The title of the film is a signpost as Andrey Zvyagintsev (Leviathan) puts the viewer through the emotional ringer of a marital breakup, a vanishing and social disintegration.
Batman - Gotham by Gaslight
This animated feature-length film is based on the eponymous 1989 comic, published by DC's imprint Elseworlds. Elseworld's stories are known for catapulting their DC comic heroes out of the usual milieu and setting them in alternative times. This is also the case with GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT, where Batman is confronted with none other than Jack the Ripper!
A Caribbean Dream
