FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

A cop hunts down killers this week in Dobermann and a boxer becomes a priest in Father Stu, while an elderly couple face dark days in Vortex - we interviewed Gaspar Noé - and friends make a suicide pact in On The Count Of Three. Mismatched officers take on bank robbers in high octane spoof Cop Secret, which we discussed with director Hannes Þór Halldórsson and his co-star Auðunn Blöndal, while a writer deals with grief in Faye and a woman goes all out to protect her family in The Drover’s Wife: The Legend Of Molly Johnson - see what director/star Leah Purcell told us about it. Alternate realities spell trouble for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, a young couple try to survive a plague which causes aggression in The Sadness and a mid-life crisis prompts a man to try to live like a Viking in Wild Men. Six kidnapped strangers strive to Escape The Field, an author struggles with bereavement in Faye, and a young gay man fights for an Olympic opportunity in The Swimmer - we spoke with director Adam Kalderon. A father seeks help to die in Everything Went Fine and cinema takes a look at itself in The Found Footage Phenomenon - see what co-director Phillip Escott had to say. There's a documentary call to arms in Wake Up Punk - director Nigel Askew shared his thoughts - and a young woman discovers the shocking truth behind her 94 siblings in documentary Our Father.
