Dir. Kevin Brownlow and Andrew Mollo, UK, 1965

1940: the Nazis successfully invade the UK. The television series SS-GB was a poor fantasy, this pseudo-documentary made by a young Brownlow and Mollo about the British rebels' attempt to free the country is an extraordinary achievement of independent film-making made with invention.

 

Biographer of British Fascist Sir Oswald Mosley, Dr Stephen Dorril will talk about his research on the role of the British Resistance Organisation and Nazis invasion plans for the UK.

Dir. Basil Dearden, UK, 1950

 

Newly remastered, this crime thriller centred on new police officer Andy Mitchell, his mentor, George Dixon, and young criminal hooligan, Dirk Bogarde, was immensely popular. The first film to look at the day-to-day activities of the police, it remains an interesting social document of the times.

Dir. Michael Gracey (US 2017, 105mins PG)

The audience hit of the year. Auto-tuned and full of CGI, it makes no difference to the sensational reception of this exuberant celebration of the life of T.P. Barnum (Hugh Jackman). But don't forget the theme of discrimination, the excellent Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Keala Settle and the brilliant costumes of Ellen Mirojnick.

Unbelievably, Swiss women did not have the vote in 1970, then a demur housewife in a small time village decided to get political and win the vote for women. This fictionalised entertaining crowd-pleaser delivers a genuine and rousing sense of sisterhood in Switzerland's entry to the Oscars.

Dir. Ildiko Enyedi (Hungary 2017, 116mins 15)

Film of the year? Great originality, exquisite and beautifully composed direction in an eccentric but moving romantic and sometimes brutal drama that has the look of an Edward Hopper painting about how two people connect with each other in life and in dreams in a love without rules. The winner of the Berlin prize and Hungary's Oscar entry for best foreign language film.

Known as Megan Leavey in the United States, this turned out to be one of the big films of the year which audiences absolutely loved. The uplifting true story of a young female Marine (Megan Leavey played by Kate Mara) and her combat dog with whom she develops a unique bond. After 100 successful missions, both were wounded by IED explosions in Iraq (2006). Leavey was awarded the Purple Star but what happened next leaves everyone in tears.

THE PARTY

Dir. Sally Potter (UK 2017, 68mins 15)

Potter's short, sharp and at times disconcerting dark comedy about Middle Class mores showcases British acting at its best with great performances and sparkling dialogue from Kristin Scott Thomas, Patricia Clarkson and Timothy Spall.

GLORY

Dir. Kristinia Grozeva & Peter Valchanov (Bulgaria/Greece 2017 99mins 12)

Beautifully acted and often very funny fable about a honest and innocent railworker who comes across a large cache of money and sets off a tale of corruption and eventual tragedy as the hard-edged PR people (a wonderful Margita Gosheva) take over. Another gem from these Bulgarian directors (The Lesson, 2015).

Dir. Steven Spielberg, (US 2017, 117mins 12)

A nuanced and brilliant performance from multi Oscar winner Meryl Streep as Kathrine Graham, the first female publisher of a major US newspaper (Washington Post), and the attempt with her editor (Tom Hanks as Ben Bradlee) to publish during the Nixon era the Pentagon Papers, the secret government documents on the Vietnam war leaked by Daniel Ellsberg.

Dir. Martin Provost (France 2017, 117mins 12)

Two outstanding performances from two of France's greatest actresses, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot, as the still wild but dying former mistress of her father and the inhibited and hurt daughter, now a midwife, who meet again after thirty years. A moving film of warmth, depth and emotion that is entirely a pleasure.
