Returned to England from the Crusades, a nobleman finds his lands taken and himself declared outlaw. Messy big-budget version of the oft-told tale mixing action-adventure, hammy playing and black magic/folk horror in at-times awkward measure. Fun in places though.
Two retired lawmen are recruited to hunt down and kill Bonnie and Clyde. Handsome but slow period thriller that can’t quite make up its mind if it wants to go for drama or action. Well-played, though, with a great Thomas Newman score, evoking Road To Perdition.
Super stylised gangster film set during prohibition. A very strong ensemble cast chews though a tight script with relish and Connery is ‘outshtanding’. Always worth your time.
The true story of Molly Bloom, who ran high-stakes poker games in New York and LA. Excellent drama, balanced by a fine central performance and swaggering writing, chronicling a perhaps typical rise and fall-style story, but done with class and confidence.
