Kermode and Mayo's Film Review

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss, The Matrix Resurrections, The King’s Man, Titane and Licorice Pizza.


Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss talk about their new films, The Matrix Resurrections, in which we return to a world of two realities: one, everyday life; the other, what lies behind it.

Mark reviews that film along with The Humans, a horror set in a pre-war duplex in downtown Manhattan; The King’s Man, the prequel to the Kingsman movies starring Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton and Rhys Ifans; Julia Ducornau’s Titane; Benedict Cumberbatch in The Electrical Life of Louis Wain about the English artist Louis Wain who rose to prominence at the end of the 19th century for his surreal cat paintings; Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza, which tells the story of Alana Kane and Gary Valentine growing up, running around and going through the treacherous navigation of first love in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles in 1973.

Plus Simon and Mark talk through all the films on current release in the box office top ten.
