Published Mar 14, 2014It may be the middle of March, but that doesn't mean winter has freed us from its frosty fingers just yet. Instead of staying inside and wallowing in your seasonal sorrow, why not head over to your nearest cinema and bask in the warm glow of the silver screen? To help you on your way, we've taken a gander at a few of the films hitting theatres this week, but don't forget to visit our Recently Reviewed section for reviews on even more new films.
First up is The Grand Budapest Hotel, the eighth full-length feature from critically-acclaimed director Wes Anderson. Set in the fictional Republic of Zubrowka, the film manages to feel like Anderson's most European and stylistic feature to date. But is there more to this madcap adventure about a bisexual concierge and his bellboy than just a bunch of fanciful frivolities? Read our review to find out.
After that, Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve delivers stunning suspense with the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring doppelganger thriller Enemy, while British director Ben Wheatley finds beauty in the grotesque with the experimental period piece A Field in England.
Last but not least, Breaking Bad alumnus Aaron Paul steps away from the small screen and onto the big one with the high-octane action adventure Need for Speed. But are there enough thrills and chills to keep viewers interested in this simple action flick about a man who avenges the death of his best friend by competing in a drag race? Click through to know.
