As close to omniscient as a film buff is ever likely to get, the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il was so enamoured by South Korean moviemakers Shin Sang-ok and his actress (and ex-wife) Choi Eun-hee that he had them kidnapped, whisked over the border, and put to work reviving local film production. They had little choice but to comply, and in the process, they fell back in love… "Perhaps the all-time strangest, most outlandish true-life story connected to the cinema and its practitioners…Fascinating on personal, political and cinematic levels." Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

With the recent passing of director Michael Cimino and DP Vilmos Zsigmond it is high time to reevaluate this notorious box office flop, a western - or anti-western - that was too radical for US critics in 1980, both in its politics and its aesthetic daring. Restored to its full glory, this elegy for lost ideals could be the greatest movie you’ve never seen.

A French platoon on a rocky outpost near the Afghan-Pakistan border is rocked by the disappearance of one of their comrades one night. Has he gone AWOL, or has he been captured by the Taliban?

t’s not easy being a good father to two boys you barely know anymore. Elliot (Joel Kinnaman, Suicide Squad) takes his sons into the great outdoors for some target practice, but his attempt to get in Bradley’s good side by giving him the keys to drive them back home backfires badly when they skid off the road in the middle of nowhere. Shrewdly dissecting father-son and sibling tensions, this nailbiting endurance thriller shuttles vividly between interior psychological and external, environmental factors.

The latest from Quebec’s Denis Côté is a psychological thriller, a portrait of a successful businessman whose arrogance slowly begins to crumble under the duress of coping with his wife’s breakdown. Is her mute passivity actually a form of protest? Or is it a kind of karmic payback for Boris’s infidelities, greed, and narcissism? That’s the disturbing claim of a strange messenger (played by Leos Carax-favourite Denis Lavant) who encroaches on Boris’s country retreat.
