Lucy

Lucy is the type of film you leave the cinema smiling after. It's ambitious, ludicrous and utterly flawed. This is the whimsical output of director Luc Besson who probably undertook the whole endeavour as an incredibly serious affair. Imagine The Raid with Terence Malick flourishes. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) has been forced to internally traffic CPH4, a drug which expands brain capacity leading to kick-ass super hero invincibility coupled with a physical morphing meltdown. Interspersing the 10% to 100% ramping up effect of this drug with nature montages and hallucinogenic internal digestive sequences leads to a thrilling and  disjointed experience. Throw Morgan Freeman into the mix as a superflous scientist who dials in his sincerity and you've got a heady caper. This is the definition of cinematic OTT. Still I left the cinema smiling. / Michael McDermott

An Evening with Candi Staton

Candi Staton is a totem of the genesis of modern American music, from country music, to disco, to R'n'B. The genres my be intertwined, but it takes a spectacular vocal to master them all, which is why you must all hush, hush, very quiet now, as she takes to the stage in the intimate Sugar Club, for a concert and conversation. She has been surrounded by the cacophony of all-sorts that make the music industry so intoxicating to the glorious few, and all those looking in through the frosted window at the glamour within, which should make for a fascinating discussion. With incredible hits in her repertoire, such as Stand By Your Man, Young Hearts Run Free, and You Got The Love, the time is ripe to revisit her legacy, in the wake of 2013's Summer of Disco. / Kate Coleman

Quest for Fire

Quest for Fire is a paleolithic vision. Set in that time that caveman diet fanatics find themselves constantly referencing, it is the story of fire. Man make fire - man must regulate fire. An examination of human behaviour in its rawest form, the film is an anthropological feast. Made in the early eighties, it remains a cult film of fascination, which is reflected in the wealth of references to it within popular culture, from Ellen, to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, right through to Family Guy. Being shown as an accompaniment to the current TBG&S exhibit of The Sophisticated Neanderthal Interview by Nathan Mellors, its relevance is clearly enduring. So get out of your cave and watch it. / Kate Coleman
