At the Movies: Our Picks

Wind River (2017)

Taylor Sheridan’s scripts for Sicario and Hell or High Water have established him as the go to man for classic American drama, and with his directional debut he furthers this reputation, as Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen star in a chilly backwoods murder mystery for Fargo fans.

6 Days (2017)

Kiwi director Toa Fraser’s international breakthrough matches action with brains, as it chronicles the response by SAS soldiers to 1980 hostage crisis at the Iranian Embassy in London.

Mother (2017)

Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream) is no stranger to controversy, and his latest starring new bae Jennifer Lawrence has attracted some ridiculous commentary. A stranger knocks on a married couple’s door one night and things get crazy – sounds familiar right? Except here things get really crazy.

Logan Lucky (2017)

Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean series reinvented the heist movie, employing big name stars, nifty editing, and some good gags and great set pieces. This return to the genre does the same, yet this time around the setting is the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig star.

A Ghost Story (2017)

No a film with a ghost in a white sheet isn’t a comedy, or even a horror movie really, instead David Lowery’s wonderfully bizarre film follows the aforementioned entity – played by Casey Affleck – as he deals with love and loss while haunting the house he once lived in with girlfriend, M (Rooney Mara).
