Growing up on Sing Street; floundering on Mother’s Day and a sneak peak at one oddball DOXA film

But there’s more: a drag queen singing, a conflicted detective, a Maori chess teacher, a hot comedy duo and a video game’s move to the big screen

The Huntsman without Snow White, celebrities at a fashion gala and the latest from two stars we like

  It’s not too early to think about DOXA, the documentary festival that starts on May 5. You’ll need time because there’s lots to read in the catalogue that’s now out and available at JJ Bean...

Reviews: The Jungle Book, Criminal, and two fine Canadian films

Also films about jazz legend Miles Davis, gun talk in a Barbershop and ethical dilemmas from Romania and Denmark

The Boss is crass and Everybody Wants Some pleases but Hank Williams gets a bland bio pic

Also a thriller from Argentina, The Clan, a strange form of recovery from grief, Demolition, and a rigorous look at right-wing media, The Brainwashing of My Dad

Smart sci-fi in Midnight Special, Spike Lee’s gun rant in Chi-Raq and a Thai mystery

Also a charming comedy from Quebec and a women’s rights story from Turkey

Batman v Superman, drones making war in Eye in the Sky and a second Big Fat Greek Wedding

Plus a jazz casualty, Beethoven’s 9th and angst in Hollywood and on the mating chase

Two thrillers and a charmer: 10 Cloverfield Lane, River, and The Little Prince

Also Only Yesterday, a little-seen animated film from Japan, and Kinderwald, an fairy tale for adults about pioneering immigrants

Tina Fey goes to war; Judy Hopps goes to Zootopia and cultures clash in the Amazon

Also a Norwegian disaster movie, The Wave, machine gun attacks in London Has Fallen and a killer barber in The Legend of Barney Thompson

On Oscar weekend, six new movies arrive with gods, ski jumpers, a mermaid and Michael Moore

Also dirty cops, Freudian fears on the prairie and a gem about conflict in the Balkans

Watching Jesse Owens in Race, fear and religion in The Witch and bi-polar angst in Touched With Fire

Also there’s a short documentary series with six absolutely up to date controversies
