Event like this always interest me. Most of the movies are good and most of the people looks happy. 

The best films now showing

1

20,000 Days on Earth

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Who exactly is rock star Nick Cave? You’ll get the facts but also something stranger and more compelling in this day-in-the-life profile.

2

The Guest

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

With Downton Abbey behind him, actor Dan Stevens swaps high-born domestic drama for an electrifying John Carpenter–esque thriller. We love the career change-up.

3

Stray Dogs

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

From greatest-hits package to pure greatness: Taiwan’s Tsai Ming-liang returns to familiar territory, or so it initially seems.
