Best for Film’s Favourite Flicks returns! This time with a Flossie edition, making it a ‘BFFFFFE’, if you can keep up with that. Barbarella is somewhat of a guilty pleasure for me, but I am not ashamed enough to deny myself this opportunity to praise this weird and wonderful sci-fi film from the 60s. Here, Jane Fonda is a total screen goddess and it’s difficult not to fall for her sexy superhero look.
Judd Apatow is back in the directing chair after working as a producer on most of America’s comedy output: Anchorman, The Five Year Engagement, Wanderlust, Get Him To The Greek, Superbad– the list is impressive. However, while Apatow has shepherded a lot of quality comedy talent in those films, his own directing and writing efforts (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) have received mixed feedback. In This is 40, he casts his own wife and kids as a family reaching a crisis point as the couple turn 40, in a plot that seems to imitate his own life. Sticking a little too close to home here proves to be the film’s downfall as laughs are few and far between.
Dr Who, aka Matt Smith, has been cast in a leading role in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How To Catch A Monster.
Principally an investigation into the trading of illegal hormones in the beef industry, Bullhead drags the viewer into the dark mafia underworld where power and greed are creating a moral maze.

The film was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Oscar last year, and was beaten by Iran’s A Separation , but has only just been released into UK cinemas.
