Beasts of the Southern Wild, Hyde Park Picture House, One word: amazing. Innovative director Benh Zeitlin boldly goes where none have gone before, to stunning effect, with the help of the best acting you’ll ever see from a nine-year old in the confusingly-named Quvenzhané Wallis. I challenge you to watch the trailer and not want to see it immediately.

Sightseers, Hyde Park Picture House, put it bluntly, fucked up. This isn’t, however, a bad thing; the darker and weirder this film gets, the more deliciously entertaining it becomes. Sure it’s a ‘romantic comedy’ at heart, but don’t say we didn’t warn you when skulls start cracking.
SATURDAY MATINEE, Top Cat, Hyde Park Picture House, 2011 remake of classic cartoon: not exactly everyone’s cup of tea; online critics have called it ‘effortless and cynical’, ‘one of the worst-ever spin-offs of a TV series’, and even ‘upsetting’. Telegraph reviewer Robbie Collins called it ‘a grievous insult not only to the original cartoon but animation in general, and also arguably cats’. It’s not exactly The Godfather, but hey, what else are you going to do with your Saturday afternoon?
