Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

It's the New Year, so it's time for the New Year's Honours list. Yes, well done Annie Lennox and all that, but some great awards have been dished out for film fans. Not just Andrea Arnold getting an OBE after directing the awesome "Michael Fassbender gets jiggy with an Essex girl" Fish Tank, or even that Sandy Powell - costume designer extraordinaire - picked up an OBE too. No, the best news is that David Suchet has been awarded a CBE.

He starred in The Bank Job, Flushed Away, and (most recently) The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but Mr Suchet is best known and widely acclaimed for his excellent work in Wing Commander. But it also turns out that he goes by another name in some households. And that name is Hercule Poirot. Or to give him his full title: Hecule Poirot - CBE, bitch.




Vive les New Year's Honours. And yes, David Suchet's Murder on the Orient Express was actually better than Sidney Lumet's version. C'est scandaleux, non?
