Out Now – 25th April 2014

The Other Tracks

The Other Woman
Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and non-actor Kate Upton star as three women involved to varying degrees with the same man. The women team up to exact revenge on their collective beau with HILARIOUS CONSEQUENCES!

Transcendence
Wally Pfister (Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer of choice) directs his first film starring king of flops Johnny Depp as a scientist whose consciousness is uploaded to a computer. The plot sounds like something from a sci-fi film made decades ago and nobody seems to like it apart from Mark Kermode.

Tracks
Mia Wasikowska stars as a young woman who decides to go on a 1,700 mile trek across West Australia in search of a life changing experience. Based on a true story this is not a film filled with action but one focussing on a single character. Some may say this sounds boring but I for one am curious.

Exhibition
Joanna Hogg, creator of slow mumbley films featuring Tom Hiddleston, has made her third film about… “An intimate examination of a contemporary artist couple, whose living and working patterns are threatened by the imminent sale of their home.”

Identity Card
Indian sci-fi comedy drama (if IMDb’s genre tags are to be believed) which follows “the story of a journalist from Delhi who happens to go to Kashmir and gets caught by STF forces, how her one day in a specially police cell changes her life.”

The Informant
“A story centered on a man who works as an informant for the French border patrol.” In my head he spends most of the film undercover on the underside of a lorry.

Looking for Light: Jane Bown
Film celebrating the work and career of Observer photographer Jane Bown. This woman has taken photos of anyone who is anyone. Even you. Maybe not you actually everybody else though.

Cupcakes
” In contemporary Tel Aviv, six diverse friends gay, straight, successful, not so successful gather to watch the Universong competition. Like most viewers, they are appalled by the winning song, and taking the trials of one of their group whose marriage is splitting up as a subject, they jokingly compose “A Song for Anat” (actually the work of Babydaddy, from Scissor Sisters). They are as surprised as anyone when it is chosen as Israels entry for next years competition.”

An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker
Short Bosnian film about a man searching for scrap metal in order to raise enough money to get his wife a life saving medical treatment.

After the Night
“Straight out of jail, Sombra returns to his life as a drug dealer in the creole slum of Lisbon. In between the money he has lent and can’t get back, the money he owes, a fanciful iguana, an invasive little girl and a ringleader who begins to mistrust him, he starts to think that he might have been better off in the clink…”

You & Me Forever
Danish drama about the trials and tribulations of female friendship and how things can change when a new friend enters a small clique.

We Are the Freaks
“Three misfits embark on a weekend they will never forget.” Seems simple enough. What more do you want?

Jatt James Bond
This honestly looks like nothing more complicated than a Bollywood take on James Bond. How can this not be a good thing?
