FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

The award-winning Faces Places hit cinemas this week - read what the legendary Agnès Varda told us about it. A German soldier steals a coat and promotes himself to The Captain in the dying days of World War Two - we spoke to director Robert Schwentke - while an artist finds herself in danger in Never Here - director Camille Thoman shared her thoughts. There's a big screen rerelease for The Godfather and the story of controversial musician Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. is told in documentary form. A cowboy tries to carve out a new identity in award-winner The Rider - see what Chloé Zhao and Brady Jandreau told us about it - while you can see Harry Dean Stanton's last ever performance in Lucky and the Hatton Garden jewel robbery is dramatised in King Of Thieves. A teenager gets a taste of prison life in Michael Inside, a father and son drive around their city together in Wajib - director Annemarie Jacir shared her thoughts with us - while tribal life is explored in Down To Earth and documentary Island meets people with terminal illnesses. All this, plus we're bringing you news and reviews from the San Sebastian Film Festival.
