A rival causes trouble for Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil this week, the story of British Intelligence whistleblower Katharine Gun is told in Official Secrets and order breaks down among a group of trapped girls in Ladyworld. There's drama in the publishing industry in Non-Fiction while a community responds to the brutal murders of black men in What You Gonna Do When The World's On Fire? and the story of a troubled porn star unfolds in Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life. A preacher is targeted by the FBI in The Day Shall Come and a psychiatrist meets a man with a terrible secret in The Dead Center - see our interview with director Billy Senese. Alongside this, you can check out our coverage of the Cambridge Film Festival and we still have reviews coming in from the New York Film Festival and the London Film Festival - plus there's still time to catch Joaquin Phoenix in Joker.
