Shot in 1972, but not finished until 2018 because of a major technical problem, this documents the making of the best-selling Gospel album of all time that Aretha Franklin recorded live at the New Bethel Baptist Church in L.A. There’s an absolutely electrifying sense of witnessing music being created with the rapport between the Gospel choir, Aretha and all the musicians that makes you want to applaud like you are in the back of the church. With Aretha in her prime this is quite simply one of the finest music documentaries ever made. Guaranteed to send you home with a smile on your face.
Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes 2018, this delivered the biggest ever UK opening for a Hirokazu Kore-eda (After Life; Still Walking; Like Father, Like Son) film. This is a complex, moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together. In Tokyo, poverty-stricken family the Shibatas routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. A rare depiction of Japanese society’s urban underclass, Shoplifters is an incredibly satisfying film, exquisitely drawn and full of Kore-eda’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry. Winner Palme D’Or Cannes Film Festival 2018 This film is F-Rated
