1. Mr Turner

Mike Leigh’s infinitely superior biopic starring a sublime, if grunty, Timothy Spall.

2. 12 Years A Slave

TWE072BB-copy-618x413

Harrowing – you’ll be harrowed to within an inch of your life – but it’s unflinching look at American slavery will stay powerfully with you unlike, for example, Django Unchained or The Butler


3. Boyhood

Richard Linklater’s epic, heart-warming observational chronicle explores  the banality of everyday life without ever being boring; a rare achievement in cinema.

4. Twenty Feet From Stardom

A host of extraordinary women and a sensational soundtrack take this documentary about backing singers to another level, and will take you with it.

5. Paddington

Paddington-bear

Funny, satirical, political, extremely British and also marmalade, so what’s not to like? Or, even, love?
