Sunday 10 June 2012
Casa de Mi Padre (84 mins, 15)
Will Ferrell's larkish spoof of a creaky 1970s Mexican western is good for a few chuckles, but once you've got over the novelty of hearing Ferrell speaking in Spanish in front of a cheap, painted backdrop, there's not much to it. Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna co-star in a film which really should have been a Saturday Night Live sketch.
Sing Your Song (104 mins, 12A)
If, like me, you've always dismissed Harry Belafonte as a syrupy calypso crooner, this humbling documentary will come as a revelation. It catalogues Belafonte's many artistic breakthroughs, and his decades of civil-rights campaigning alongside everyone from Martin Luther King to Nelson Mandela.
Red Tails (124 mins, 12A)
George Lucas is the executive producer of this corny, pedagogical drama about African-American fighter pilots during the Second World War.
