LO­GAN

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.

MOON­LIGHT

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.

raw

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.

get out

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.
