Destinies are reshaped on a desert world this week in Dune (we have a second, in-depth review here), while Wes Anderson takes on the world of journalism in The French Dispatch and supposedly mythical creatures go on display in Cryptozoo. A fisherman goes on the run as famine looms in Arracht - we spoke with director Tom Sullivan - while Ridley Scott questions a historical tale in The Last Duel and Jason is back in Halloween Kills. A kid tries to control a broken robot in Ron's Gone Wrong, an architect takes on a strange commission in The Grand Duke Of Corsica and a stranger enters a gated community in Never Gonna Snow Again. A film editor uncovers a conspiracy in Dashcam and a Hollywood agent's life comes unstuck in The Beta Test. A woman goes to desperate measures to recover her dead sister in The Blazing World, while small time criminals get out of their depth in No Sudden Move and a dying woman tries to unravel a mystery in Fever Dream. A servant investigates a haunting in The Maid and a journalist returning to her Mexican roots is shocked by The Old Ways - see our interview with writer, director and star Marcos Gabriel, Christopher Alender and Brigitte Kali Canales.The former Soviet president is profiled in Gorbachev. Heaven and the Renaissance artist is celebrated in Exhibition On Screen: Raphael Revealed, plus there's a seasonal rerelease for Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone.
