Film review: InRealLife offers a warning about the virtual world

Ah, The InterWeb: so much to answer for. Beeban Kidron's smart and serious documentary offers a survey of the virtual world's creeping infiltration into our lives – and a warning.

Film review: Cold Comes the Night plays the trump card

A so-so indie crime thriller with one trump card: Bryan Cranston, from Breaking Bad, is in it.

DVD review: The Reluctant Fundamentalist (Kaleidoscope)

In Mira Nair’s thoughtful drama, Riz Ahmed, above right, plays Changez, the well-born son of a Punjab poet who comes to America and is “catapulted into privilege” – an Ivy League education, then a prestigious job on Wall Street. It all changes after the Twin Towers go down, when merely being a Muslim gives rise to his being strip-searched at customs, mistakenly arrested and abused.

DVD review: Thérèse Desqueyroux

Audrey Tautou stars as the title character in Claude Miller's adaptation of François Mauriac's novel of bourgeois entrapment. In 1920s Bordeaux, Thérèse is a free-spirited young woman who knows she must marry stolid Bernard (Gilles Lellouche) and thus unite their land-owning families.

Film review: One Direction - This Is Us (PG)

The news that Morgan Spurlock was to direct this account of 1D's meteoric rise to stardom may have encouraged you to hope for a subversive agenda, or at least a pinch of irreverence to set it apart from the usual boy-band cash-in.

Film review: Upstream Colour (12A)

The film that messes with your head isn't necessarily an unpleasant experience – for sure, much of Shane Carruth's second feature, following his enigmatic debut Primer (2004), is actually quite beautiful, and with some concentration you may even make a little sense of it.
