Bafta Shorts 2017 review – a bright, broad-minded movie medley

The shorts vying for this year’s award are a varied selection that tell stories of Europe’s migrant crisis, factories in China and Troubles-era Belfast

The Bafta tradition of giving a touring release to their nominated short films gets more interesting and more valuable by the year: the portmanteau film lives again. The 2017 anthology of live-action and animated shorts is a mixed bunch, inevitably, but there’s a lot to enjoy – and admire – in this non-parochial, globally minded selection. For me the most successful is Daniel Mulloy’s Home, a through-the-looking-glass journey into the issue of refugees, starring Jack O’Connell and Holliday Grainger. It’s a bold, simple idea, executed with commitment and ambition. Charlotte Regan’s Standby is a funny, clever study of two coppers that persuasively tells the story of a tender and protective friendship. Consumed is a documentary by Richard John Seymour about the Chinese factories churning out stuff such as Christmas decorations for the west: there’s an amazing shot of the massed container ships. The Party by Andrea Harkin was an impressively realised slice of tension-filled life in West Belfast in the 70s. Another very worthwhile selection.

All of Wonder Woman’s Crazy History in One Comic Collection

Wonder Woman wasn’t always a member of DC’s holy trinity of superheroes. She was just another hero in the DC lineup. Sometimes she kicked ass, sometimes she watched her pal Etta Candy eat hams, and sometimes she was a powerless spy stalking Steve Trevor. But in 1972 Gloria Steinem put Wonder Woman on the cover of Ms.

Get Out review – white liberal racism is terrifying boogeyman in sharp horror

Writer-director Jordan Peele masterfully combines incisive social commentary with genuine, seat-edge suspense in film exploring evils of American suburbia

There’s a great, often under-appreciated, history of social commentary within the horror genre. From John Carpenter’s politically charged They Live to Bryan Forbes’ haunting adaptation of The Stepford Wives, Ira Levin’s icy take on the male fear of second-wave feminism, scares and satire used to arrive simultaneously. But somewhere along the way, that tradition has been jump-shocked out of its seat, popcorn flying, and replaced with vapidity, an impatient teenage audience force-fed predictable thrills over a story that might provoke or inspire debate.
