The reason that this film is a pervert's guide is that in order to be able to see how ideology works, you have to be able to look at it in a perverted way. Everything has to be stood on its head and looked at askance if we are to see it properly.
A few things will happen while watching Gravity. Your palms will become sweaty, then they may seek comfort at the sides of your face. You'll feel isolated, alone. Little wonder your breathing will become shallow. With your body empathising with the characters, this is clearly not the sort of film you can ignore.
The Wasp Factory at the Royal Opera House is a dark psychological study of what is pretty disturbing source material anyway. The violence of Iain Bank's book is not carried through to this production but the dark gothic intensity of his story most definitely is.
The problem with Gordon's book and so many that he's written before, he appears to enjoy including items of ingredients that are either near impossible or never stocked in the local supermarkets of Great Britain
Flowing through the heart of the capital, the history of the river Thames offers a powerful symbol for the lives of Londoners through the centuries. In fact, there have been people living on the site since before Roman times, washing there, catching fish and watching the horizon for signs of invaders.
Sergei Loznitsa's parable of man's moral place and the search for human good in the catastrophe of war was well received at Cannes 2012 and contrasts with Andrey Zvyagintsev's 2011 tale of the corrupting power of money and class resentment in Putin's modern day Moscow.
Don Jon is a Tony Manero for the dot.com generation, and while his moves tend to be more X-rated than Travolta's 70s and 80s alter ego, I can imagine JGL is going to cause a little night fever around the UK on whatever evening you see it.
London Irish is about four feckless young Northern Irish, two men and two women, who seem to spend their time avoiding sobriety and perpetuating stereotypes. It is a show so devoid of character, so devoid of charm, so devoid of comedy that I felt for a moment ashamed to be Irish in London.
It is hard to find anything new on Anne these days, however In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn fills a definite gap in the market.
CONTAINS SPOILERS! Breaking Bad has now breathed its last, and with it, Walter White's journey "from Mr Chips to Scarface", as its creator Vince Gilligan put it.
Five piece Kingsland look the part to be the next cool group. Great guys with huge likeability, tighten the vocals and you are top five material, if not higher.
Soho Cigarette is Jonathan Fairbairn's debut feature film as writer/director. Shot on a small budget through crowd funded contributions, it follows D - a self-assured young Italian male - in and around the streets of Soho.
A low budget indie is chilling and uncomfortable viewing and oozes real horror, an emotionally rewarding coming-of-age movie on the banks of the Mississippi delights and a tongue-in-cheek surreal ballet of violence heralds the fastest gun in the South.
The auditions are over for another year and the game is about to get really serious, make a mistake now and you go home... For the audience, the fun is just about to begin as we enjoy a new style bootcamp. Let's welcome the six seat challenge.
Mullinger continues to mine for comedy within the rich seam of his own life and often strikes gold. One of my criticisms of Mullinger's previous performance was his inability to move on when the well was running dry but Living the Dream has a better rhythm and structure than his previous effort.
As the Mercury nomination proves, this is still a classic Arctic Monkeys album. No one can touch them for modern rock music - and even though some of the early sparkle has been lost, the fire is very much still raging - and they are a band we Brits should be very proud of.
