Armando Iannucci’s black comedy stars Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Michael Palin and Rupert Friend...speaking in absurdly different accents

Set in what looks to be a surprisingly dingy basement flat in north London, six ghastly middle class liberal intelligentsia characters (and a banker) bicker about how ghastly the middle class liberal intelligentsia (and bankers) are

Twin Peaks superfan Lindsey Bowden has founded the UK’s only official festival and recreated surreal locations from the fictional town in Hornsey Town Hall

Carol Salter chose the subject of her first feature documentary amid concern she would not cope with the impending death of her elderly mum and dad

The annual Be Epic! London International Film Festival (BELIFF) comes to the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley on September 8-10

Bill Nighy is a little predictable in the lead but Olivia Cooke and Douglas Booth give stand out performances

FIVE STARS for Dunkirk, which stars Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Harry Styles, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Fionn Whitehead, Jack Lowden and Aneurin Barnard

Homecoming is a damn strange word to find post colon in a superhero movie title. What next? Captain America: Spring Break? Thor: Harvest Festival?

Bridget Galton talks to Brendan Gleeson about playing a role inspired by a squatter on the Heath

Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson give admirable performances in this Hampstead based romcom, but nothing is seen through and the dialogue is weak

Bridget Galton talks to Kevin Macdonald about his iconic movie ahead of Touching The Void Live at Barbican Hall

Zoe Paskett visits the Barbican’s new sci-fi exhibition, which extends throughout the building covering film, tv, literature, art and music

Roger Michell’s adaptation of this Daphne Du Maurier novel features a Sphinx like Rachel Weisz as a possible murderer but the pace is too stately to create suspense

It isn’t any kind of landmark and perhaps it is judged too kindly just because it isn’t monstrously disappointing like the previous DC films

The film of one of the world’s favourite TV shows is disappointing, with flimsy humour and a meanness of spirit that leaves a foul taste in the mouth

Meredith Taylor founder and editor of online film magazine Filmuforia rounds up the latest from the 70th Cannes Film Festival

Johnny Depp is stuck recycling one of his worst performances alongside Javier Bardem’s new villain in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge

Marvel’s latest sequel starts off sharper and funnier than the first, but loses its way in the second half

The Armeian Genocide deserves a better film but The Promise is the one it’s got and it may be enough

The film’s approach would surely meet with the institution’s approval: nothing is too structured, nothing is forced, no judgment is made and the characters are allowed to express themselves largely free of the imposition of narrative

Despite sounding like the next Tarzan spin-off, this based-on-a-true-story tale is a striking success, starring Robert Patinson and Charlie Hunnam

A film about missing explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett is set to spotlight the Amazon, finds Bridget Galton

The live action remake of this Disney classic is old fashioned, traditional and adds little to the original

The first third of the new King Kong film is fun and humorous but it loses its way when they reach the island

This is definitely not a superhero movie. Nobody wears shiny costumes; the fate of the Earth is not in the balance; there are no great CGI spectacles. It is a sci-fi tinged road movie, gritty and downbeat.
