Minions

What we know

It’s the Minions! And it’s a Despicable Me spin-off.

What the critics say

  • “It’s well up to the standard of the hyperkinetic fun we’ve come to expect from this sort of thing, both knowing and silly, but there’s evidence of the subtle gear-change in CG cartoons’ target audience” – The Guardian
  • “However, Minions ultimately lacks character, and it lacks story. What you have instead is a compilation of sporadically lively short skits, that are held together with not very much at all.” – Den of Geek

Station to Station

What we know

An experimental film featuring 61 one-minute-long short films about a transcontinental train journey. Seriously. Stars include Patti Smith and Beck.

What the critics say

  • “It suggests that a one-minute part can be the whole for one viewer or that, conversely, the whole is made up of an infinite amount of smaller parts that can each tell only a small part of the story.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Slow West

What we know

Oh hi, Michael Fassbender. It’s the wild, wild West, and a teenage boy is in search of his long lost love. But there’s a bounty hunter in the way…

What the critics say

  • “With a nod to the anguish experienced by America’s native tribes, John Maclean’s debut feature instead focuses on how male perspectives change in youth and maturity, particularly through experiences of love and violence.” – GQ
  • “Although he utters only a handful of lines over the course of the film, Fassbender is especially good at conveying a sense of Silas’s deepening protective instincts, never more so than in a teaching-the-lad-how-to-shave scene that might have felt obligatory, but instead feels both tough and tender in its understanding of the challenges of manhood in a corner of the world as cruel and unforgiving as this one.”- Variety
