Funny and gentle Francois Ozon set in the 1970's. An opportunity to watch Depardieu and Deneuve at play.
NEVER LET ME GO
A close adaptation by Alex Garland of Kazuo Ishiguro's heartbreaking novel. Like the book, the film leaves you with plenty of questions about the world it depicts but it does so in style. Beautifully shot with strong performances and sailing very close to home.
Following his excellent Gone Baby Gone, Ben Affleck directs this slick heist movie set in his Boston home town. Tense.
THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES (El secreto de sus ojos)
A beautiful slow-paced thriller from Argentina. Strong performances from Soledad Villamil and Ricardo Darin. A treat.
THE OTHER GUYS
Extremely silly but very funny buddy cop movie with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.
THE KILLER INSIDE ME
If you've read Jim Thompson's book on which this film is based, you will have some idea of the difficulties involved in making and watching it. First person narrative of a charming killer. Truly disturbing. Not sure if that's a good thing.
