MOVIE OF THE MONTH

A Hologram For The King

A Hologram For The King
(6/10) review by Steven Hampton

Tom Hanks has long since become the all-purpose quiet hero of American cinema. From its dream-sequence start-up, that re-writes the intro for Talking Heads' Once In A Lifetime (1980), A Hologram For The King is an offbeat comedy-drama, very much in the style of a Coen brothers picture.


NEW TELEVISION

Gotham season 2

Gotham - The Complete Second Season
(7/10) reviews by Christopher Geary

Long before Batman, Detective Jim Gordon was the hero of Gotham, and this TV crime drama continues to dramatise how the demands of total loyalty and sincerity are just as toxic to any honest and stable relationship as betrayal. Season two begins with 'Rise Of The Villains' and then switches mid-season to 'Wrath Of The Villains'.

Solaris

Solaris
(7/10) review by Andrew Darlington

The Russian Solaris is different, from the stately organ music over the credits, on in. Although the planet is an ocean-world, the ocean is also an entity in itself, not only a "gigantic cerebral system" but a "substance capable of thought processes."

The Scarlet Pimpernel

The Scarlet Pimpernel
(10/10) review by J.C. Hartley

This film version of The Scarlet Pimpernel begins with the disguised Blakeney (Leslie Howard) using this ruse in his rescue of the Countess de Tournay (Mabel Terry-Lewis), and her daughter (Joan Gardner), although the Count (O.B. Clarence) is detained in Paris by Robespierre (Ernest Milton), wishing to interrogate him about the Pimpernel's true identity.
