FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

This week sees all-out War For The Planet Of The Apes, technological challenges in Cars 3, and the return of the webbed wonder in Spider-Man: Homecoming. A great director's work is celebrated in David Lynch: The Art Life - we spoke to documentarian Jon Nguyen - while a Confederate soldier takes refuge in a girls' school in remake The Beguiled - see what director Sofia Coppola had to say about it - and survivors eke out a living post-apocalypse in It Comes At Night. Female prisoners take to the stage for Julius Caesar, and a blast from the past proves unsettling for The Midwife. The founding of golf is explored in Tommy's Honour, farm labourers struggle to get by in The Tree Of Wooden Clogs, and a monster takes on an apprentice in The Boy And The Beast. All this, plus 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.
