Let Us Prey


* * * - -

A hilarious, horrific and hammy (all at once) Giallo debut from Brian O’Malley.


The Uprising

Still an urgent and emotive account of the Arab Spring, but it’s hard to see how Peter Snowdon’s film tells us anything new.


Liar’s Dice

A very capable road movie full of knife-edge drama and unease.

Cannibal


* * * * -

A film of substantial elegance, grace and even quiet desperation about the routines of a seemingly unremarkable Spanish tailor.


Salvo

A fascinatingly Melvillesque – but potholed – story of a Mafioso bodyguard in Sicily.


LFO


* * * - -

An oblique and eccentric comedy on the moral consequences of unrestricted power.


20 Feet From Stardom

A completely euphoric experience that brings forward the backup singers who gave feeling, energy and memory to classic music.

Go!


* * * * -

Polina Borisova’s Go! is an entrancingly poignant account of vanishing memories.

Hôtel de Rive

This kind of enigmatic theatre may appeal to the steadfast avant-garde enthusiast, but is broadly unengaging.


Grit


* * * - -

Tortoise in a Nutshell revive their 2012 Fringe hit to reveal a frightening vision of war.
