A neurosurgeon enters a mysterious world this week in Doctor Strange, a teenager goes on the road in American Honey, a divorcee is caught up in a missing persons case in The Girl On The Train and a carpenter with ill health and a young single mum take on the benefits system in I, Daniel Blake. Hungry ogres means trouble for Trolls and the delivery of babies gets the Storks in a flap. In the documentary corner there's Louis Theroux's My Scientology Movie and Sonita, the story of an Afghan rapper whose family try to sell her into marriage, while The 13th is also available on Netflix. We've recently been at New York Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival, plus we're bringing you reviews from the Scottish Mental Health Arts And Film Festival.
