FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
A marriage unravels this week in The Nest, a girl tries to keep her mother's absence a secret in Rocks - see what writer and director Theresa Ikoko and Sarah Gavron had to say about it - and punk reggae protest movement Rock Against Racism is profiled in White Riot. Two most excellent dudes are called upon to save the universe in Bill And Ted Face The Music, while three teenagers drive to a festival in Summerland and a mixed race, same sex couple move to the wrong small town in Spiral. A remote prairie settler is haunted by The Wind, a preacher faces family conflict in Luz: The Flower Of Evil - see our interview with director Juan Diego Escobar Alzate - and there's a virtual rerelease for werewolf comedy Dog Soldiers. Police look for a scapegoat in Bong Joon-ho's Memories Of Murder, while an amnesiac man tries to solve a crime he may have committed in Killed My Wife. All this, plus we're bringing you news and reviews from the Venice Film Festival, the New York Film Festival, the San Sebastian Film Festival and the Taiwan Film Festival Edinburgh.
