Martha Marcy May Marlene

Terrifying and beautiful, this might well be the best film of 2012.

Interview: James Watkins

The director of The Woman in Black and Eden Lake sits down and chats with us about horror, Daniel Radcliffe and 3D.

Review: Acts of Godfrey

84 minutes of rhyming couplets? It sounds well annoying but I actually loved it.

Review: The Descendants

Nice film, shame about the voiceover.

Tinker Tailor Whack-a-Mole

There's a mole at the top of The Circus. Can you bash its face in?

Review: Like Crazy

A superb anti-rom-com that breaks some cliches and obeys others, which only makes it more moving.

Review: Shame

A devastating, magnificent film that trades almost solely in sex – and yet looks right through it.

Review: Coriolanus

Like Olivier and Branagh before him, Fiennes makes Shakespeare as gripping as it ever was. Verily, Voldemort did good.

If Newsreaders Did Shakespeare...

Inspired by Jon Snow's role in Coriolanus, here are some other Shakespeare adaptations starring newsreaders.

Review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

After Benjamin Button and The Social Network, this feels like Fincher back in Se7en territory. Grizzled, haunting and beautiful.

Woody at the BFI

As the BFI's season of Woody Allen films continues, we look back at some of the director's best (and worst) films.

The Artist

A feel-good treat, pure and simple. You’ll swoon, you’ll sigh, you’ll want to tap dance.

I was so busy pretending to speak like a chimp on Monday that I completely forgot to mention this brilliant part of the behind the scenes documentary.

It's a rare treat to find a 30 minute making of special feature as engrossing - and moving - as a DVD's main release, especially when it includes a chimp sign language chart.

So here it is, in case you need another reason to buy the awesome Project Nim on DVD:

If you're still not convinced (and you should be - it's one of the best documentaries of the year), read our Project Nim DVD review.

I cannot wait for Friday 12th August. Why? Because the second week in August will see nothing other than FULL-ON MONKEY WAR. 

Yes, Project Nim and Rise of the Planet of the Apes will be getting their filthy paws all over each other and monkey-slapping their arses to death in the foyer of your local cinema. 

The incredible thing about this simian oblivion is that both films look just a little bit amazing. On the one hand, you have Deep Blue Sea 2: Apes Will Rise, starring James Franco and Brian Cox. On the other hand, you have an Oscar-winning director introducing the cutest chimpanzee of all time.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Project Nim. Who will win the big primate showdown? There's only one way to find out...

Trailer: Project Nim

Director: James Marsh
Cast: Bob Inglersoll, Bob Angelini, Bern Cohen
Certificate: TBC
Release Date: Friday 12th August

From the Oscar and BAFTA winning filmmakers behind MAN ON WIRE, James Marsh and Simon Chinn, comes the story of Nim the chimpanzee.

In the 1970s Nim became the focus of a landmark experiment which aimed to show that an ape could learn to communicate with language if raised and nurtured like a human child.

Following Nim’s extraordinary journey through human society, and the enduring impact he makes on the people he meets along the way, the film is an unflinching and unsentimental biography of an animal we tried to make human.

What we learn about his true nature – and indeed our own – is comic, revealing and profoundly unsettling.
