“On parole, working-class Glaswegian single mum Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) is desperate to kickstart her dream of making it in Nashville, whatever the cost to family and friends. Country music, proclaims the gobby singer, is ‘three chords and the truth’ – a mantra she’s had tattooed on her arm.

“Man's best friend receives a cinematic pat on the head in Buddy, the latest documentary by veteran Peru-born Dutch director Heddy Honigmann. Observing how six service dogs provide crucial daily help and companionship for their grateful owners, the ruminative, accessible affair proves as soothing to the viewer as the faithful pets are to their humans.

"Jarmusch has brought the B-movie zombie flick back from the dead: this is a disarmingly intelligent riff on politics, parodies, and the futility of it all." - Film Inquiry

"Jim Jarmusch addresses the state of the nation and global ecological catastrophe in this deadpan zombie apocalypse movie that goes straight for the jugular by placing Steve Buscemi's racist farmer in a MAGA-style cap that simply states 'Keep America White Again'.

“A fan letter, a film noir, a study in self-deprecation… This is simply the finest jazz documentary ever made. Bruce Weber clearly idolises a subject who personifies the fading ’50s Beat spirit, but trumpeter Chet Baker refuses to expose his soul.

"Easy Rider became one of the rallying-points of the late '60s, a road picture and a buddy picture, celebrating sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, and the freedom of the open road. Seeing the movie years later is like opening a time capsule.

"The Fall of the American Empire is like an economics class taught by Georges Simenon or Elmore Leonard. Denys Arcand has made a great, violent, socially relevant crime caper film." - Boston Herald

“Charged with alternating currents of droll wit, sardonic cynicism, and socialist-tinged idealism, writer-director Denys Arcand’s The Fall of the American Empire is a richly amusing rumination on the excesses and amorality of capitalism.

50th Anniversary of this landmark film! " I cannot recall a more marvelous pair of acting performances in any one film. " - Gene Siskell, Chicago Tribune

“Midnight Cowboy stars Jon Voight as Joe Buck: tall, tanned and beautiful but he’s a man with no one, passing through the script of a wretched life.

“West Wind is a documentary on the life, art and death of perhaps Canada's most famous painter, Tom Thompson. It's a lovely piece of work from two of the country's most esteemed documentarians, Peter Raymont ( Shake Hands with the Devil) and Michèle Hozer ( Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould).
