When the nominations for the 2016 Academy Awards were announced in January, the question on everybody’s lips was not about whether or not this is the year Leonardo DiCaprio will get his (little gold) man, but rather why were there only white contenders in all four acting categories?

Green Room (18) | Close-Up Film Review

Let’s face it, punks and skinheads are one of those old rival contingents that will never be the best of friends. The genesis of the old rivalry goes way, way back to a time when this primal culture clash of two tribes was dusting it up on the hard cobbles of 1970s Britain.

Son of Saul (15) | Close-Up Film Review

October 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Saul Ausländer (Röhrig) is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the gas chambers, crematoriums and death pits. It’s slavery with no hope of a future: Saul and his fellow inmates know that the Nazis routinely eliminate the Sonderkommando.

Desert Dancer (15) | Close-Up Film Review

This is a powerful story, based on the real life experience of Iranian-born dancer and choreographer Afshin Ghaffarian, and is a passionate feature film debut by British director Raymond.

Louder than Bombs (15) | Close-Up Film Review

This film has an interesting background, in that the story is set in and was shot in America but is written and directed by Scandinavians, led by Norwegian director Trier.

Bastille Day (15) | Close-Up Film Review

“It’s all about the distraction” says petty thief Michael Mason (Madden) when explaining his sparkling technique in an interrogation from CIA badass Brier (Elba).

Midnight Special (12A) | Close-Up Film Review

Rather like a reverse ‘ET’, Midnight Special is predominantly a sci-fi film.

Eye in the Sky (15) | Close-Up Film Review

This is an intelligent, relevant and thought provoking film wrapped effectively inside an edge of the seat action movie.

The Man Who Knew Infinity (12A) | Close-Up Film Review

The film introduces us to Srinivasa Ramanujan, an important figure in the history of mathematics, who may well be famous in India but is probably unknown to most members of the general public in the Western world.

Boulevard (15) | Close-Up Film Review

Chronic (15) | Close-Up Film Review

A dutiful carer finds companionship in his patients in this moving drama by Mexican writer-director Michel Franco.

Cinema has long been attracted to wilderness survival tales, perhaps because so few of us ever undergo such physically and emotionally demanding feats.

A Warrior’s Tail (PG) | Close-Up Film Review

Eastern Europe has a tradition of interesting and witty animation and the actual pictures in this adventure/journey fanasy tale from Russia are charming, beautiful and visually imaginative.

Fire City: End of Days (15) | Home Ents

Fire City: End of Days is a fairly odd and yet intriguing movie. It explores a world where demons live among humans and feed off their pain and misery.

The Nine Demons (15) | Home Ents Review

Two childhood friends, trained in deadly martial arts, are the only survivors of a massacre. When one of them stumbles into a portal to Hell, the lord of the underworld grants him magical powers and an opportunity for revenge if he allows nine demons (essentially eight hyperactive children and a vampy woman) to enter his body.

Uzumasa Limelight (15) | Home Ents Review

A lovely, touching film that manages to indulge in samurai swordplay AND emotional issues about generation gaps and growing old – as well as deftly satirising movie production in Japan.

The Sound Barrier (U) | Home Ents Review

There’s no real shortage of fuel for the mind of a 12-year-old boy whose twin passions were aircraft and film. During the late eighties and early nineties the likes of Top Gun, Memphis Belle and, God help me, Iron Eagle, were easily accessible.

Welcome to Leith (15) | Home Ents Review

The story of how Craig Cobb, a white supremacist, attempted a take-over of Leith, a very small North Dakota town.

Three Brothers (Tre fratelli) (12) | Home Ents Review

Slightly dated by its burgeoning sentimentality, Three Brothers is still an intriguing and heartfelt work by one of the great Italian film directors.

The Intern (12) | Home Ents Review

The film should appeal to older people but not be quite as popular from the feminist point of view. Ben (Robert De Niro), now 70-years-old and a widower, is not very happy with his life: he feels useless and non-productive.

Asmodexia (15) | Home Ents Review

In theory an exorcist road movie sounds like a fascinating new twist on the tried and true exorcism movies of recent years. Asmodexia focuses on exorcist Eloy and Granddaughter Alba as they travel towards an impending and portentous resurrection, whilst performing exorcisms on the road.

Tangerine (15) | Home Ents Review

It is Christmas Eve in Los Angeles and Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block after being locked up for 28 days in the slammer

Death Walks Twice (18) | Home Ents Review

Cheesy 1970s thriller fun of the very highest quality – these two lesser known Italian films are way better looking, better sounding and much more fun than many more celebrated giallo films.

Supernatural Season 10 (15) | Home Ents Review

When U.S. television show Supernatural began back in 2005, each episode was more of a battle against the demon of the week rather than consisting of any ongoing narrative.

Bande à part (PG) | Home Ents Review

It could be said that Bande à part is just a reimagining of a Hollywood crime film of the 1940s which follows three young misfits – Franz (Sami Frey), Arthur (Claude Brasseur) and Odile (Anna Karina) as their plan to burgle a rich old lady goes tragicomically wrong.
