Jaws

A masterclass in Hollywood blockbuster entertainment.

Delicacy

It’s true that Delicacy won’t tax the brain, but its sincerity holds it above the sickliness of Hollywood.

Le Havre

Humble and modest portrait of an essentially good community, pulling together when they need to.

Goddess

Strange Theatre’s Goddess skilfully poses many questions about femininity in both ancient and contemporary contexts.

The Deep Blue Sea

There is something underwhelming about this film, as it appears Davies has made various cut backs.

No and Me (No et Moi)

Breitman’s completely underrated film acts as an emotive reminder of the appalling hardships facing young people on the streets today.

Océans

Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud explore the wonders of the subaquatic world and show the beauty we are slowing wiping out.

la nuit intime

Liv Lorent creates a truly pensive and romantic package, but is sadly let down by her choice of venue.

The Ides of March

Clooney creates a fairly well informed film that touches on our current economic climate and dishonest political figures.

One Man, Two Guvnors

Injecting his own jokes and farcical routines, Richard Bean presents us with a contemporary farce which does not fall short of the mark.

Drive

Too cool to be seen in major cinema chains, Refn’s new crime thriller transcends anything you’re likely to see this year.

Edinburgh Fringe: Aftermath

Although the festival is over, Edinburgh is still furnished with a great deal of arts entertainment for everyone. The only thing you need to hope for is some sunshine.

Jawbone of an Ass

SATIRE

Public masturbation, crossing-dressing and murder, what more could you ask for from a religious satire.

Viewless

PHYSICAL THEATRE

A dark and sinister production, Scottish favourites Cumbernauld Theatre Company highlight the paranoid nature of everyone involved in the Witness Protection Scheme.

The Station: Fourstones

A charmingly winsome production centred around belief, innocence and identity. Can you find a sense of place in Northumberland woodland? Idle Dream seem to think so.

Happy Ever After?

THEATRE

Expecting a show that was bold and intrepid, it was disappointing to find that the cast lacked craft and some (quite literal) stage presence.

The Monster in the Hall

COMEDY DRAMA

David Greig returns with his ensemble piece of music and mime. Norwegian anarchists, chaos fairies and 60s girl bands are all in a day’s work for Duck Macatarsney.

A Slow Air

DRAMA

It’s Houston vs. Edinburgh in David Harrower’s compelling new play following estranged siblings Morna and Athol.

Happy Ever After?

Prepare for fairy-tale characters to be exposed at this year’s Fringe by magic/theatre group Thee Gothic Gentlemen.
