Daringly, the Conservative conference started with its inspirational highlight, Thatcher: the movie – a nostalgia vehicle which brought the audience to their feet in what may prove the one unequivocally enthusiastic standing ovation of the week. The iconic images included Mrs T be-goggled and all in white in the turret of a Challenger tank: a 20th century Boadicea as played by Isadora Duncan. Or the lady at her shimmering sexiest at a 1976 meeting in Finchley: “I stand before you in my red star chiffon evening gown, my face softly made up and my fair hair gently waved, the iron lady of the western world.” By this point you had begun to fear for the pulse rate of older party representatives.

Matthew McConaughey, after his louche turn in Killer Joe, once again excels as an ageing, preening stripper in Steven Soderbergh's lightweight drama.

This doom-laden cop drama comes from the director of Training Day, but while it has that film's urban toughness, it doesn't have the electrifying plot that went with it.

Things are far from fine in Antoine Fuqua's determinedly humourless policier.
Friday 11 June 2010
The title, bleak with irony, refers to three Brooklyn cops whose individual stories crisscross through Antoine Fuqua's violent and overlong study of moral squalor.

It's a beautiful character," Ethan Hawke enthuses, "who in the first scene commits a murder, and in the second goes to confession and then can't confess. He feels he's got 200 pounds on his shoulders, a giant gorilla on his back, which is that he's failed his wife."

"I don't want to be arrogant, but I'm incredibly attractive," Ashton Kutcher's preening lothario, Nikki, assures us at the start of David Mackenzie's smutty morality tale. Nikki, jobless and feckless, targets LA's wealthiest single women, sleeps with them, lets them buy him expensive clobber (mainly, it seems, appalling scarves and, more horrifyingly, braces) and then lounges around their swimming pool. Anne Heche's glacial lawyer is his latest "victim". This flimsy look at shallowness and avarice in LA was captured much better in American Gigolo, and reminds you just how good a young Richard Gere was in these narcissistic roles.

Bland beyond endurance. Based on a Japanese story of canine fidelity, this stars Richard Gere as a music professor (yeah, right) who picks up a stray dog on the way home from his railway commute.
