    Sad Cypress

    ★★★★

    Screenwriter David Pirie and director David Moore (who recently directed Sky's big new series Jamestown) adapt Agatha Christie's novel into a fine and atmospheric film. Christopher Gunning's score, along with robust acting talents of Rupert Penry-Jones, Kelly Reilly and Paul McGann add to the overall quality of the production.

    4K ULTRA HD. Upscaled from 2K.

    Five Little Pigs

    ★★★★★

    One of those films that had such an effect on your youth that watching it is like reliving your childhood. This is pure, wonderful filmmaking; sumptuously shot in beautifully textured and grainy 16mm film, the majority of it handheld, with a gorgeous colour palette. This should be used as an example in how to take a good book and turn it into an even better film.

    4K ULTRA HD. Upscaled from 2K. Five Little Pigs was shot on Super 16mm…

    Film of the year. Actually, maybe even film of the decade.

    Digital Cinema. 4K.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    For years Nolan has endeavoured to strive further and make a truly special blockbuster. With Interstellar he has at last done it.

    A note on the viewing: Viewed from a 70mm celluloid print at a press screening at the BFI IMAX, London.
