Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac in Ex Machina

Ex Machina

Alex Garland's directorial debut, Ex Machina is a taut, tense and elegant sci-fi thriller that is utterly compelling from start to finish

  • He doesn't know when to walk away and he doesn't know when to run

    The Gambler

    If you liked poker drama Rounders you'll enjoy this. Blackjack is the game; Mark Wahlberg is the guy in way over his head.

  • A thriller and a fascinating study of a marriage under strain

    A Most Violent Year

    Kerosene of the crime.

  • Apples of the Golan - poetic and powerful

    Apples of the Golan

    Two Irish film-makers spent four years among the people of the village of Majdal Shams in the Israeli-occupied, Syrian Golan Heights to make their powerful film.

  • The man behind 'The Legend'

    American Sniper

    After some years in the directorial doldrums, Clint Eastwood is back on form with this troubling true story of war, male identity and patriotism.

  • Witherspoon delivers the most honest performance of her career

    Wild

    Have you ever walked a mile in someone else's shoes? How about 1,100 miles?

  • Like the piece of music it takes its name from, you can enjoy Whiplash again and again, finding something new to excite you every time

    Whiplash

    Acting like a maniac.

  • Streep is as brilliant as always

    Into the Woods

    Take the director of Chicago, an all-star cast, a Broadway hit musical and a whole heap of fairytales and you've got Into the Woods in a nutshell.

  • John du Pont (Steve Carell) confers with his charge, Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum)

    Foxcatcher

    Based on true events, Foxcatcher is powerfully moving and cinematographically beautiful, an American morality tale of fallen glory.

  • Mills (Liam Neeson) settles down to some no-fuss DIY survival skills as he begins life on the run

    Taken 3

    Global earnings for Taken 2 amounted to $376m despite a cool reception from the critics. Don't be surprised if the third in the franchise will out-gross its two predecessors, even if the thing is running out of steam.

  • Michael Keaton isn't just back, he's redefined his career

    Birdman

    John Byrne reckons Michael Keaton redefines his career in this black comedy about a washed-up movie star seeking credibility and redemption on Broadway

  • Hammer time
  • Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne are central to the film's success

    The Theory of Everything

    James Marsh's biopic about famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking could so easily have gone awry - but he has managed to pull together a moving yet not overtly-sentimental look back at his life.

  • Based on Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption

    Unbroken

    A fine tribute to a real American hero.

  • Christian Bale plays Moses

    Exodus: Gods and Kings

    Don those 3-D glasses and leave your source material at the door. With its sweeping panoramas and its creepy evocation of violence and decadence at the Egyptian court, Exodus: Gods and Kings is pure entertainment and escapism.
