This weeks releases and (r)ecommendations
A quirky, visual comedy with some wonderful set-pieces and touches of Jacques Tati, Pierre Etaix, Chaplin and Keaton. A mini joy.
A personal, entertaining, off-court drama, with comedic touches, although a bit over long which echoes the spirit of the time and places Bilie Jean's sexuality centre place.
A compelling character study of a teenager struggling with his sexual identity.
'Suburbicon' should have been a toxic-filled, comedy caper but emerges as a muddled mix that outsmarts itself. A Coen brother's script is best left to the Coen brothers.
'Starvecrow's 69 iPhone hours cut to 84 minutes should be cut further and further and further...
Improvised and irritating, an upside down romcom that lacks wit or irony.
Also screening this week.
