"The Souvenir doesn't get under your skin. It clasps your hand tightly, and when it finally lets go, you will feel its absence." - Austin Chronicle

“Watching the films of Joanna Hogg, a late-blooming British master, is like watching a blank canvas become a work of art. Start with small details. Add in impressions and feelings. Build visual elements stroke by stroke, until near the end, the big picture emerges almost in real time, with full impact.

The iconic Canadian singer/songwriter, now 80, gets candid in refreshingly complex music doc.

"From the song he refuses to perform to his admiration for Drake, a songwriting legend reflects on his lyrics and longevity with candour and humour. At 80 years young (and currently recording another album), Gordon Lightfoot continues to entertain and enlighten.

"All Is True is just what you would want for a Shakespeare biopic directed by Kenneth Branagh - it's touching and impeccably well-acted, with great turns from the director and on-screen wife Judi Dench." - Daily Mirror (UK)

"When it comes to Shakespeare movies, you know you’re in good hands with Kenneth Branagh. In All Is True, the British actor and director does double duty in front of and behind the camera, speculating about the Bard’s bittersweet final years. This handsome film is wondefully acted and clearly made with no shortage of compassion and love.

"Gorbachev turns out to be one of the most fascinating political figures of our time. All thanks to Herzog's keen eye." - The Wrap

Werner Herzog and André Singer's riveting documentary, filled with unforgettable archive materials and based on three long interviews, provides incredible access to, arguably, the world's greatest living politician.

"While Joan's early years are absolutely fascinating, it is the refreshing concept of Dench's elderly communist agent that gives this drama its real bite and edge." - Daily Mirror

“A good old-fashioned British spy thriller with a bewitching female heroine (or anti-heroine, if you will) played by the excellent actresses Judi Dench and (as her younger self) Sophie Cookson, Red Joan revisits the incredible real-life spy case of Melita Norwood. It is directed with a strong sense for character by Trevor Nunn, the former director of the Royal Shakespeare Co.

With special introduction by storyteller, songwriter, performer and visual artist, Tom Wilson!

Tom Wilson presents BLOOD SIMPLE. “Black humor, abundant originality and a brilliant visual style make Blood Simple a directorial debut of extraordinary promise.
