Exit Through The Gift Shop - Who is Banksy? An international man of mystery that’s who, who set the art world alight with his graffiti that manages to be beautiful, witty and arresting all at the same time. But this film isn’t really about him. Here, Banksy swops the spray can for the camera and focusses it on Thierry Guetta, a street art obsessive who ends up turning into an overnight sensation himself. Whether it’s all an elaborate ruse is still being debated, but either way, the film sticks a playful two fingers up at the art world with plenty of laughs along the way.
Wall Street: El Dinero Nunca Duerme - This, the belated sequel to Oliver Stone’s 1980’s masterpiece tries to make bankers and banking sexy again after we all decided we hated them a few years back. Michael Douglas revives his role at Hollywood’s slickest banker, Gordon Gekko, as he gets out of prison for insider trading. According to some critics, greed is simply not as good as it used to be and this sequel lacks the charm or pace of the original. Shame.
Gru – Mi Villano Favorito (Despicable Me) - A rare thing, this animation became an instant box office hit in the US but wasn’t made by Pixar or Disney. Steve Carell provides the voice of the lead Gru, a supervillain who revels in being bad. Aimed at children, the film lacks the subtle adult humour of most Pixar releases and critics have suggested that the plot falls short. Russell Brand and Julie Andrews also lend their voices.
Cartas a Julieta (Letters to Julieta) - Starring Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave and Gael Garcia Bernal, this soppy chick flick is set in Italy. Bernal plays an excitable chef which is enough to keep most women watching for a couple of hours but if you see it at the cinema, you might wish you’d waited for the DVD to come out and saved your money.
