FOR FANS OF MadMax, TheLastOfUs The best and most brutal X-Men film, Logan sees a washed-up, embittered Wolverine traveling across the country with a senile Professor X trying to protect a young mutant. With its dusty desert and lashings of blood, it’s X-Men like you’ve never seen it before.
for fans of Boyhood It’s no wonder that Moonlight swept the awards circuit last year. This heartbreaking feature from director Barry Jenkins follows a young man at three key stages of his life, as he struggles with his sexuality and an abusive, drug-addicted mother.
for fans of Jennifer’sBody, GingerSnaps Julia Ducournau directs this gruesome coming-of-age horror fable about a teenage girl who develops a craving for flesh after eating meat for the first time. Not for the faint of heart, Raw queasily depicts the carnage of becoming a woman.
for fans of TheTwilightZone Like a feature-length episode of The
TwilightZone, Jordan Peele’s terrifying debut introduces us to a young black man who’s about to meet his girlfriend’s family for the first time. Racial tensions abound, and so does something much darker.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
for fans of Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella This glizty remake of the 1991 animated movie looks beautiful, with its fairytale castle and dreamy French countryside. Truly enchanting, with a star turn from Emma Watson, our only gripe is that we actually think the Beast looks kinda cute as he is...
MADAME BO VARY
for fans of LadyMacbeth Classic 19th century novel MadameBovary has been famously hard to adapt, but French filmmaker Sophie Barthes perfectly captures the delicate and flighty spirit of the eponymous heroine split between three men and a country life she despises.
