Here’s Lou Thomas weighing in with his festival favourites…


Bone Tomahawk (2015)

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

5. Bone Tomahawk
Gruesome but consistently hilarious horror-tinged western for those with a strong stomach. Great to see Kurt Russell firing on all cylinders again.

4. Grandma
Lily Tomlin excels in this heartfelt and funny tale of a septuagenarian lesbian on a mission to help her pregnant granddaughter. 

3. Black Mass 
Ice-cold Boston-set gangster movie featuring Johnny Depp’s best performance since Donnie Brasco.               

2. Carol
A beautiful, moving love story with stunning turns from Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. Certain to be a big winner come awards season.

Son of Saul (Saul Fia, 2015)

Son of Saul (Saul Fia, 2015)

1. Son of Saul
A gruelling masterpiece from debut director László Nemes that should be seen by everyone.
