GANGS OF WASSEYPUR, PARTS 1 2

Picture The Godfather saga refashioned as a Bollywood musical but with more explosions and prison breaks and sex addiction. Expect swearing and butchering throughout the epic, 318-minute extravaganza.

WEST OF MEMPHIS

Even if you’ve seen all three parts of the similarly themed Paradise Lost, Deliver Us From Evil director Amy Berg’s chilling portrait of the West Memphis Three case makes for white-knuckle storytelling.

SHORT STORIES

A rejected manuscript influences the lives of all who touch it in Mikhail Segal’s surreal, stately, socially conscious anthology.

WHITE TIGER

A ghostly German tank channels Moby Dick – a Great White Panzerkampfwagen – in Karen Shakhnazarov’s enigmatic, strikingly original second World War drama.

CALL GIRL

A troubled youngster is recruited into a prostitution ring in this compelling Swedish thriller inspired by a real-life 1970s political scandal.

The King of Pigs

Yeun Sang-ho’s startling Korean anime flashes back from recessionary hardships to an even more traumatic past. Schoolyard bullies reign in a film that could easily be OldBoy Jr.

POST TENEBRAS LUX

Does this schoolboy rugby match have anything to do with that glowing demon?

You can stand there arguing with Carlos Reygadas’s obtuse, bizarre, maddening fourth feature or you can stand back and marvel at one of cinema’s greatest opening scenes.

BLANCANIEVES

Pablo Berger’s modern, silent melodrama re-imagines Snow White as a feminist heroine against Expressionist shapes and Buñuelian compositions. A classier, more cine-literate companion for The Artist.

WHITE ELEPHANT

Pablo Trapero regulars Ricardo Darín and Martina Gusman reunite for a thriller about two priests working to bring food, medicine and education to a Buenos Aires slum caught in the crossfire of a drug war.

THE GATEKEEPERS

Documentarian Dror Moreh interviews all

six former heads of Shin Bet, the Israeli internal security service, in this revealing, award-winning chronicle of frontlines and ruthless tactics.
