His & Hers


Ken Wardrop’s award-winning documentary tells a 90-year love story in 70 different female voices. Presented in order of age, interviewees from the Midlands speak with affection, humour and occasional bemusement about the men in their lives. Luminous and beautifully framed, the film works as a generative collage: what may seem trivial in some of the early interviews acquires depth when echoed in the stories of the older speakers. Each woman offers her own hopes, plans, recollections or regrets; but it is Wardrop’s considerable achievement that, through deft repetitions in colour and composition, he leaves the viewer with the impression that he has spent 90 years in the presence of one soul.

Get Him To The Greek







Aaron Green gets things done. The ambitious 24-year-old has been given a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.’s world famous Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a huge comeback tour. His record mogul boss, Sergio Roma (Sean Combs), gives him one warning: “The artist is the worst person on Earth. Turn your back on him at your own peril.” British rocker Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) is a brilliant musician, but due to a bad break up and nose-diving career, has fallen off the wagon and is now a drunken disaster. Weary of “yes men” and scared he’s entered the “greatest hits” moment in his career, Snow’s in the midst of a nihilistic downward spiral. When he learns his true love, model/pop star Jackie Q (Rose Byrne), is in Los Angeles, Aldous makes it his quest to win her back…right before kick-starting his world domination. As the countdown to the concert begins, one innocent young man must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound… all while trying to remain faithful to his med student girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss). He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

The Killer Inside Me






The twisted world of legendary pulp author Jim Thompson makes it to the screen intact in British director Michael Winterbottom’s startling adaptation of the 1952 novel Stanley Kubrick dubbed “probably the most chilling and believable first-person story of a criminally-warped mind I have ever encountered” While even Sam Peckinpah toned down Thompson’s dark vision in the past, this atmospheric 1950s set encounter with a seemingly meek Southern sheriff, who’s overwhelmed by secret urgings beyond the pale of morality, delivers film noir in the truest sense of the term. Volatile and quite terrifyingly driven, Casey Affleck’s central performance never tries to soften a character whose aberrant ways prove compelling, even when we can hardly watch. The markers of the genre are all there, including Jessica Alba’s sultry vixen, and a suspense plot with sundry kinks along the way, but Winterbottom’s risk-taking achievement is to play them straight, instead of lapsing into ironic affectation
