Christmas gets creepy this week in Better Watch Out, a young man finds there's a lot more to his childhood hero than he thought in Brigsby Bear and Jake Gyllenhaal plays a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in Stronger. A widower has to fight for custody of his son in Menashe - see our interview with writer/producer Alex Lipschultz - while a samurai helps a girl seek revenge in Blade Of The Immortal, a musician meets a mermaid in Lu Over The Wall and Ai Weiwei meets refugees from around the world in Human Flow. Michael Haneke explores the private lives of the bourgeoisie in Happy End, a child with a facial deformity explores the world in Wonder, the making of famously bad film The Room is dramatised in The Disaster Artist, one of America's foremost trade unionists has her story told in documentary Dolores and EU security is the subject of Europe At Sea. There are re-releases for The Muppet Christmas Carol and A Matter Of Life And Death. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of the French Film Festival.
