Salma Hayek

Us, an artful horror movie, also three good ones back in town from the film festival

They would be Woman at War, from Iceland, Ash is Purest White, from China and the Hummingbird Project, made in Quebec

Multiple Cate Blanchetts in Manifesto, Salma Hayek’s dissent in Beatriz at Dinner and facing obsolescence in Cars 3

Also: life well-observed in The Commune, a different kind of boxing movie with Olli Mäki and a dodgy bio of rapper Tupac Shakur

'Man from UNCLE', rappers' 'Outta Compton' and sexy stuff in a 'Teenage Girl’ diary

Also a quick history of Women’s Lib, a wannabe screwball comedy and uplifting homilies beautifully animated

Mommy, a Canadian classic, Fury, an old war, The Best of Me, another Nicholas Sparks romance
