Clash

Set entirely within the confines of a police van, Clash dramatizes the ongoing political unrest in Egypt two years after the Arab Spring. It's 2013 and mass protests have led to the ouster of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood by the army. A series of arrests finds rival demonstrators trapped in a paddywagon together under the threat of impossibly stifling heat. From this simple setup, Mohamed Diab weaves a white-knuckled tale of resistance and shared humanity that artfully evokes the political fault lines in the Arab world?s most populous nation.

England Is Mine

Set in Thatcher's Britain of the 70's and 80's, a time when working class Manchester was beset by unemployment and riots, the film tells the story of 17 year-old Steven (Jack Lowden), a painfully shy, intellectually precocious loner who lives for, and writes about, the burgeoning local music scene' a surprisingly vibrant subculture in an otherwise drab industrial city.

Lady Macbeth; Their Finest; Rules Don’t Apply; Risk and more – reviews

William Oldroyd’s costume drama has a truly killer line in corsets, while Lone Scherfig offers a very different take on DunkirkThere are those who associate the words “costume drama” with genteel comfort viewing, as if no act of brutality or subversion could ever be committed in a hoop skirt. It’s a perception that Lady Macbeth (Altitude, 15) upends with stringent, stinging fixity of purpose. An elegantly appointed chamber piece in which toxic masculinity, destructive sexuality and racial exploitation bounce ever more violently off the walls, William Oldroyd’s ice-spined debut straps the viewer in a corset and pulls the laces to…

From Noon Till Three

From Noon Till Three is one of the oddest films I have ever seen. It's definitely the weirdest Western I have ever seen, and somehow barely fits the category. It would be like calling Barbarella the strangest sci-fi flick you've ever come across, when really it's not science fiction at all, it's a fantasy/comedy/acid trip that just happens to be set in space. The same goes for this movie, something I had never heard of, accidentally stumbled across, and watched with no forewarning. It's not entirely a Western, it's more a wacky story set during the same time period but…
