The Square (15) - film review

Jehane Noujaim’s film is inspirational and dispiriting by turns. It follows the Egyptian protest movement in Tahrir Square from 2011 until late 2013. The enormous idealism of the young protesters campaigning for President Mubarak’s fall is self-evident. The film-makers are there in the Square at what seems the start of a revolution. Then, the politics kick in. The Muslim Brotherhood win power in an election that leaves many of the protesters feeling betrayed. The army lurks menacingly in the background. Noujaim very skilfully interweaves the intimate  stories of half a dozen main protagonists with the bigger story of what is happening in Egyptian society as a whole.

1: Life On The Limit (12A) - film review

Paul Crowder’s very well-researched feature documentary about Formula One racing, made alongside Ron Howard’s drama Rush and narrated by Michael Fassbender, has a strangely morbid undertow. The first part of the film follows the “travelling circus” of Grand Prix drivers in the 1960s and 1970s. They’re very dashing figures (likened by some to Spitfire pilots) who lead glamorous lives but stand a fair chance of being killed. Their cars are “mobile bombs” that grew faster and faster, even as the safety standards of the tracks stayed the same.
