Cinema – Hail, Caesar! (15)
There is a case to be made that the films of Joel and Ethan Coen offer diminishing returns these days. Where once you would rush to the cinema to see what the makers of Fargo and Oh Brother! Where Art Thou? had come up with, there’s now the trepidation that you’ll be wading through another Inside Llewyn Davis. This, though, is an homage to old Hollywood that is both about 1950s cinema and a passable pastiche of it – packed with of-the-time techniques and colours. The cast of Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin, George Clooney and his Burn After Reading co-star Tilda Swinton also underline its worth.
