Jiro Dreams of Sushi
(82 mins, U)
A documentary to bring a tear to the eye, a smile to the lips, and a rumble to the tummy. Jiro Dreams of Sushi introduces Jiro Ono, the 85-year-old proprietor of a Tokyo sushi restaurant with three Michelin stars and just 10 seats. David Gelb's good-humoured tribute to hard work and high standards is paced and structured with a precision which would surely meet with Jiro's approval.
(101 mins, 18)
Cheapo Canadian horror comedy about a medical student (Katharine Isabelle) who becomes a specialist in body modification. There's an ick-factor to the surgery, but nothing you could call scary or funny.
May I Kill U?
(88 mins, 15)
Kevin Bishop stars as a Metropolitan Police officer who becomes a murderous vigilante in a crass black comedy which squanders the satirical notion of a serial killer with his own Twitter following.
