Robbie Collin talks to the director Nicolas Winding Refn about his new film Only God Forgives, a violent revenge thriller set in Bangkok, starring Ryan Gosling and Kristen Scott Thomas. As a follow up to the very successful Drive, this film has split the critics with many appalled by the on screen violence. He explains what made him choose such a controversial project just as his career is crossing out of the arthouse and into the mainstream.
Bridesmaids director Paul Feig discusses his new cop buddy comedy The Heat, with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy as an unlikely police partnership. He explains why he remains wedded to comedy and wants to see more roles for older women in Hollywood..
As haunted house horror flick The Conjuring beats off the blockbusters like Pacific Rim and The Lone Ranger at the US box offices, film journalists Catherine Bray and Rob Mitchell discuss the economics of the horror film.
And Jonathan Holiff explores the life and secrets of his father Saul Holiff, manager of Johnny Cash. Based on a stash of audio tapes he found in storage, he explores the relationship between the two men. The result is an intriguing documentary, My Father and the Man In Black.
