FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

This week, Christopher Nolan steps back in time to consider the rescues at Dunkirk, while there is also all-out War For The Planet Of The Apes, a technological challenge in Cars 3, and an unlikely adventure for a headteacher in Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. A great director's work is celebrated in David Lynch: The Art Life - we spoke to documentarian Jon Nguyen - while citizen journalists report on the syrian conflict in City Of Ghosts. A Confederate soldier takes refuge in a girls' school in remake The Beguiled - see what director Sofia Coppola had to say about it - and female prisoners take to the stage for Julius Caesar - we chatted to star Karen Dunbar. All this, plus there's a rerelease for influential blackmail drama Victim, we're bringing you all the latest from Fantasia, and we still have reviews coming in from the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
