Verdict: Four out of five stars. Chilling and gut-wrenching, the tension never lets up, even though you already know the outcome. It’s all centred on a powerhouse performance from Jessica Chastain, helped by an outstanding supporting cast that includes James Gandolfini and Mark Strong.

Review: Silver Linings Playbook

Verdict: Four out of five stars. Despite the Hollywood-ised ending, Silver Linings Playbook proves worthy of its eight Oscar nominations with a nuanced, moving and often very funny examination of not just mental illness, but the things that drive us to the brink of breakdown.

Argo, Ben Affleck

Verdict: Four out of five stars. Ben Affleck has truly come into his own as a director with a film that is part spy thriller, part black comedy, part history lesson. Deeply moving and very funny too, the excellent cast and Affleck’s confident directing makes Argo a must see.
