BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
2018, 20th Century Fox, 132 min, UK/USA, Dir: Bryan Singer

This enthralling celebration of Queen and their music follows the band’s extraordinary lead singer, Freddie Mercury (Golden Globe Best Actor Rami Malek), who defied stereotypes and convention to become one of history’s most beloved entertainers. Following Queen’s meteoric rise, their revolutionary sound and Freddie’s solo career, the film also chronicles the band’s reunion, and one of the greatest performances in rock history.


ONE PLUS ONE
1968, ABKCO Films, 110 min, UK, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

One of the pivotal and, arguably, most controversial works of legendary provocateur Jean-Luc Godard, the film alternates between reflections on contemporary politics and social issues of the late 1960s while providing an unprecedented view of The Rolling Stones’ creative process in the recording studio. Also released as SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL, this is the director’s preferred cut without the finished version of that famous song at the end.


A STAR IS BORN (2018)
2018, Warner Bros., 135 min, USA, Dir: Bradley Cooper

Sam Elliott stars alongside first-time director and four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper and, in her first leading film role, Lady Gaga, in this new take on the tragic love story. In a role Cooper created for him, Elliott plays Bobby, brother, manager, father figure and conscience to Cooper’s booze- and pill-addled Jackson Maine. Bobby has seen Jack through the best and worst of times, giving up any aspirations he held for himself to usher his more gifted little brother through rock stardom. But the sacrifice has left a bitter taste for both men that even brotherly love can’t completely overcome. The cast also includes Andrew Dice Clay and Dave Chappelle. “Sam Elliott is wonderful. He breaks your heart.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.
