A man has to tell a story to save his life this week in Night Of The Kings while a young woman wrestles with alcoholism in Justine. A woman has to fight off the same assailant every night in Lucky - we spoke to director Natasha Kermani - while a hairdresser nurses a potentially deadly obsession in The Stylist. You can explore the oral history of the Western Isles in Iorram (Boat Song), follow the story of a punk legend in Poly Styrene: I Am A Cliché, or see theoretical physicists at work in Black Holes: The Edge Of All We Know. The death of Jamal Khashoggi is the focus of The Dissident, everyday life in the Middle East is depicted in Notturno - see our interview with director Gianfranco Rosi - and the work of painter James Morrison features in Eye Of The Storm. A carer fears for her Down syndrome client in Dementer, a family is threatened in The Dark And The Wicked, and The United States Vs Billie Holiday charts the targeting of the blues singer. Plus we still have reviews and interviews coming in from the Glasgow Film Festival.
