FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
Romance and ambition lead a YouTuber to cross a line this week in A Brixton Tale and a teenager aims to realise his drag queen ambitions in Everybody's Talking About Jamie. Meanwhile friends hope a giant fly will make them rich in Mandibles, a bereaved boy makes a dangerous bargain in The Djinn and a psychologist takes on Ted Bundy in No Man Of God - we interviewed director Amber Sealey. A crime lord's daughter discovers her destiny in Yakuza Princess - see what star MASUMI told us about it - and a criminal is sent to rescue a kidnapped woman in Prisoners Of The Ghostland. A lawyer tries to help a client who will offer no defence in The Collini Case - see our interview with director Marco Kreuzpaintner - and a thrilling real life mystery surrounds The Lost Leonardo. A criminal fleeing an assassin takes refuge in a Copshop and a woman discovers she has a talkative unborn child in Ninjababy and there's love, loss and indie music in Giddy Stratospheres. A domestic abuse survivor tries to build a new life - and home - for her kids in Herself, a girl befriends a late night visitor who might not be human in Martyrs Lane - we spoke with director Ruth Platt - while a woman has a strange encounter in the forest in Gaia and a filmmaker's legacy is remembered in Inferno Rosso: Joe D'Amato On The Road Of Excess. Fans of archive film should also look out for detective thriller The Maltese Falcon the restored version of The Servant, which are out on re-release.
