FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Things get scary at scout camp this week in Cub, it's bloody at the barber's in The Legend of Barney Thomson and Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to save his zombie daughter Maggie. You'll be holding back your emotions in Pixar's Inside Out while a drug lord's widow fails to hold back hers in Hot Pursuit and a young DJ gets in the mood for music in Eden - we spoke to director Mia Hansen-Løve. In the documentary corner Iris reflects on fashion icon Iris Apfel, 1920s Russian life is captured by a Man With A Movie Camera, and Best Of Enemies charts the sparring between Gore Vidal and William F Buckley Jr - we spoke to director Robert Gordon.
