4/5
Think of Arabian Nights as a cinematic box set: three boundary-bursting, exuberant, empathetic films from Miguel Gomes, which build up into a portrait of present-day Portugal.

Richard III (1995)
An outrageous, wickedly funny, 1930s fascist version of the Shakespeare play starring Ian McKellen as Richard of Gloucester.;

Friend Request is a thoroughly unpleasant and somewhat laughable horror movie with a warning to young folks at its core: be careful whom you friend on Facebook.

The latest incarnation of The Jungle Book -- almost half a century after Disney's much-loved musical cartoon -- is a stunner.

Miles Ahead (2016)
Miles Ahead riffs on the life of Miles Davis, improvising around the facts available, but somehow still reveals the essence and spirit of the man and his music.

Peter Greenaway's latest, Eisenstein in Guanajuato, may not be up everyone's street, and even fans may find the self-indulgent longueurs towards the end of the film too much. Still, the premise is interesting.

Hirokazu Koreeda's Our Little Sister is a gentle, lyrical, beautifully shot story of three sisters who take in their 14-year-old half-sister, and find their past is not what it seemed.

Some films exist entirely on their own terms, while others benefit from a bit of backstory.

What a very fine cast T he Huntsman: Winter's War is proffering: Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Emily Blunt. And what a fine mess the first-time director of this fairytale prequel makes as he squanders their talents.

As a pistol-packin' cowgirl in fringed leather trousers, Day is terrific, an object of athletic awe and irrepressible good cheer.

I Am Belfast (2015)
A visual meandering through the scarred city which unearths painful history -- and poetry.

Dheepan (2016)
Directed by Jacques Audiard of A Prophet and Rust and Bone, the drama comes at a timely moment, showing the struggle of refugees entering a less-than-welcoming country.

Iona (2015)
Directed by Scott Graham, the story has a timeless quality, the spiritual and the bucolic intersecting with unnatural desires fed by the proximity of the community.

Underground (1995)
Acknowledged as the Bosnian director Emir Kusturica's masterpiece, Underground is a hallucinogenic comic romp through Yugoslavia's troubled history over 50 years.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 is as stale as last year's baklava, an attempt to cash in on the 2002 movie without updating some very old-fashioned tropes.

This superhero-smorgasbord directed by Zack Snyder melts into an electric soup of CGI. Effects are so overused that any conviction explodes in a giant fireball -- indeed endless fireballs. The result is an enervating two and a half hours.

High-Rise (2016)
High-Rise manages to be a work of towering insanity and a searing comment on the decadence of present-day London. Rarely is a period film so of the moment.

Eureka (1984)
More a curio than a straightforward classic, Nicolas Roeg's Eureka is beyond weird.

Risen (2016)
Risen is a sort of Sunday school special, an Easter adventure starring Joseph Fiennes as Clavius, a war-hardened Roman tribune who ends up investigating the disappearance of Jesus after the stone is mysteriously rolled away from the Messiah's tomb.

The Pearl Button is a piece of visual poetry that meanders along the waterways, coastline and history of Chile, coming into sharp and horrifying focus on the atrocities of Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship.

The eco-message is rather vague, the villain not particularly villainous, and the jokes fall flat.

The writer-director Magnus von Horn keeps the nature of John's crime a secret from the audience for most of the film, which becomes an increasingly desperate and unlikely device.

Even the idea that Fifty Shades of Grey might require parody seems ludicrous.
