    Film of the week: What Maisie Knew

    Film of the week: Silence

    Echoes – of the past and the lost, of people and their stories – seep into this richly resonant portrait of a sound recordist documenting west Ireland’s unpeopled landscapes. Mark Sinker fills in the gaps.

    Film of the week: Blancanieves

    Hot on the heels of The Artist, Tabu and Frankenweenie, this silent Spanish-Cinderella fantasia is a gloriously entertaining rumination on families, film history, fairytales and Spanish folklore, says Mar Diestro-Dópido.

    Pacific Rim

    Guillermo del Toro’s metal-monster sci-fi has the awesome to give you nosebleeds – but protagonists who seem long ago lobotomised, says Kim Newman.

    Film of the week: Night of Silence

    A too-young bride, a too-old groom, the ghosts of the past and a long night of two souls: Reis Celik’s spartan marital-chamber drama is less Before Sunrise than Scheherazade, says Philip Kemp.
