THE SISTERS BROTHERS (15) – 2018 USA/France 122 mins

Director: Jacques Audiard
Stars: John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed

Charlie and Eli Sisters are bounty hunters for Oregon City’s Commodore. Their latest mission is to track down a chemist headed for the California Gold Rush with a secret formula… In his first English language feature, Audiard (The Prophet, Rust And Bone) reveals a rich sense of humour amidst the gunsmoke, stunning Western landscape and faultless period details, and majestic score by Alexandre Desplat (The Shape of Water, The Grand Budapest Hotel). Reilly is the pick of an excellent cast, as a sensitive man dealt a tough hand by fate.

An all-American delight – ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE (15) – 2017 UK/Fra/USA 85 min

Director: Lynne Ramsay
Stars: Joaquin Phoenix, Judith Roberts, Ekaterina Samsonov

Image from the filmA military veteran with more traumatic memories than most could bear, Joe (Phoenix) works in the murky and violent world of private security. He’s good at it, and guards his identity carefully. Between jobs, he lives with his elderly mother in his childhood home. When he’s asked to discreetly rescue a politician’s missing teenage daughter, a fragile equilibrium is destroyed. This compelling and often hallucinogenic realisation of Jonathan Ames’ novel by Ramsay (We Need to Talk about Kevin) and composer Jonny Greenwood (Phantom Thread) is “bleak psychological artistry… the best kind of feel-bad movie” (Daily Telegraph).
