Empire's 5-Star Reviews
Sort by: Alphabetical Most Recently Reviewed
Tony Benn: Will And Testament (2014)
Political campaigner, passionate humanitarian and pipe-smoking icon, Tony Benn was never afraid to polarise or aflame with his trenchant views and tightly-held views. As such, he's a mesmerising subject for Skip Kite's documentary.

Two Days, One Night (2014)

Some Like It Hot (2014)
Witnesses to the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, struggling musicians Joe (Curtis) and Jerry (Lemmon) escape from Chicago by donning women's clothes and joining a musical troupe heading for the sunshine of Florida. Befriended by Sugar "Kane" Kowalczyk (Monroe), the pair hope their disguises outlast their Mob pursuers...

Boyhood (2014)
Six year-old Mason (Coltrane) lives with his mom (Arquette) and sister Samantha (Linklater) in Texas, Dad (Hawke) having recently left. We follow his and the family’s life over the next 12 years, as boy becomes man.

A Hard Day's Night (2014)
Escaping hordes of fans, the Beatles board a train for London to play on a live TV show. Joined by their manager Norm and Paul’s grandfather, the band groove at a nightspot before Ringo goes AWOL, throwing the whole television appearance into jeopardy.

Rebel Without A Cause (2014)
Flighty, devil-may-care 17 year-old Jim Stark (Dean) moves to Los Angeles with his parents. Enrolling in high school, he's soon in deep with both the law and his fellow teenagers, including local muscle-brain Buzz Gunderson.

Calvary (2014)
Sligo, Ireland. In the confessional, Father James (Gleeson) learns that one of his congregation, who was abused by another priest, intends to kill him in a week’s time. The priest is visited by his daughter (Reilly), who has recently attempted suicide, and deals with a range of locals who have differing reasons to hate the Catholic Church.

Wake In Fright (2014)
Working as a teacher in a two-horse Outback town, Gary Bond heads to a neighbouring town to catch a flight back to Sydney for Christmas. His plans, though, are soon derailed as the sweaty, sinister locals make his life a misery.

Stranger By The Lake (2014)
Franck (Deladonchamps) frequents a gay cruising spot by a lake, one day meeting handsome Michel (Paou). The attraction is instant, but Michel is dangerous. Will their liaison prove fatal?

The General (2014)
When Union spies steal an engineer's (Keaton) beloved locomotive, he pursues it single-handedly and straight through enemy lines.

Inside Llewyn Davis (2014)
The Village, winter 1961. Aimless singer-songwriter Llewyn Davis (Isaac) sulks at the fringe of the folk-revival scene, pestered by the memory of his dead partner and vaguely hoping for a big break to land in his lap. But the unwelcome fruit of a one-night stand with Jean (Mulligan) and the accidental adoption of a cat set in chain various mishaps that might just fail to change Llewyn's life.

The Wolf Of Wall Street (2014)
Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio) dreams of being a rich stockbroker, but after losing his Wall Street job in the crash of 1987 he falls on hard times. Inspired by a dodgy local dealership, which sells cheap stocks to working-class people, Belfort goes into business by himself, manipulating the finance market and spending millions on his decadent lifestyle.
