The top 25 underrated films of 2003

18 December 2013 5:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 19 Dec 2013 - 06:30

Our journey through the lesser-known films of the 2000s continues. This week, it's 2003...

It was the year that Arnold Schwarzenegger went from Terminator actor to Governor of California, and when The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King dominated the global box office with a gross of more than $1bn. 2003 was also the year the Wachowskis' Matrix trilogy thundered to a close, the year Freddy Krueger clashed with Jason Voorhees in, er, Freddy Vs Jason, and the year Pixar scored another hit with Finding Nemo.

But as you've probably gathered by now, 2003 was also a year of quite brilliant, less lucrative films. The movies we've included in this week's list were chosen for a variety of reasons - some were ignored in cinemas, while others were harshly treated by critics. Some were modestly popular or given awards on release, »

Third time lucky for Prisoners, and UK box office has its worst weekend of 2013

16 October 2013 3:01 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

No film managed to take in an excess of £1m, but Proclaimers musical Sunshine on Leith moves to second place and Le Week-end had a commendable opening

Sunshine on Leith: watch the trailer for Dexter Fletcher's musical – video

• Read Peter Bradshaw's review of Le Week-end

The slump

From bad to worse: the expression is aptly applied to the currently becalmed UK box office. The weekend delivered the lowest overall grosses of the past year, with no film achieving takings in excess of £1m. The last time no title managed seven figures was back in June 2012, when a staggered release of Ice Age: Continental Drift saw it occupy the top spot with takings just from Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The poor result is partly an anomaly relating to the way the UK box office is tracked and accounted. In fact, new DreamWorks animation Turbo was playing previews on Saturday and Sunday, »

Le Week-end – review

12 October 2013 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Lindsay Duncan and Jim Broadbent shine in Roger Michell and Hanif Kureishi's melancholy romantic comedy

Having previously collaborated on The Mother and Venus (the former something of an overlooked gem), writer Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell reunite for this tale of a long-married couple attempting to get away from it all in Paris, but instead finding the broiling tensions in their relationship coming to an unexpected head. Mixing its ennui with a vitality and underlying sense of defiance, this very likable melancholy rom-(non?)-com boasts splendid turns from Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan, between whom the sparks (hostile, passionate, dependent) fly with conviction and grace. He is a disillusioned lecturer, out of favour with his college, misanthropic with his students; she is a teacher, still eager to grab life by the throat, wanting more from her future than the acceptance of disappointment or the familiarity of comfortable estrangement. »

Hanif Kureishi: in praise of adultery

4 October 2013 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Nick and Meg go to Paris for their 30th anniversary and confront some tricky questions. In his new film, Le Week-End, Hanif Kureishi meditates on the old problem of marriage and desire

Marriage as a problem, and as a solution, has always been the central subject for drama, the novel and the cinema, just as it has been at the centre of our lives. Most of us have come from a marriage, and, probably, a divorce, of some sort. And the kind of questions that surround lengthy relationships – what is it to live with another person for a long time? What do we expect? What do we need? What do we want? What is the relation between safety and excitement, for each of us? – are the most important of our lives. Marriage brings together the most serious things: sex, love, children, betrayal, boredom, frustration, and property.

Roger Michell and Hanif Kureishi talk about Le Week-End

4 October 2013 2:44 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Lindsay Duncan and Jim Broadbent as Meg and Nick in Le Week-End - 'Slowly the characters come into focus and it becomes clearer how you should cast them' Listening to Hanif Kureishi and Roger Michell spar at the San Sebastian Film Festival press conference and roundtable interviews for Le Week-End, you can't help feeling that their own enduring relationship must have played, at least a little, into their creation of middle-aged couple Meg and Nick. The writer and director - whose collaboration began back in 1993 with mini-series The Buddha Of Surburbia and has included 2003's The Mother and Venus in 2006 - enjoy a quick-fire, easy repartee. In their film, Meg (Lindsay Duncan) and Nick (Jim Broadbent) have a similar conversational cut and thrust - although they are skating on much thinner ice. We follow them over the course of a weekend as they do runners from restaurants, bump into Nick's »
