Telegraph critic Robbie Collin stands in for Simon this week as he’s unwell. Mark reviews ‘EO,’ Jerzy Skolimowski’s harrowing new film about a donkey that encounters happiness and sorrow along his journey through life, ‘Knock at the Cabin’ - M Night Shyamalan’s apocalyptic film – which tells the story of a same sex couple who are held hostage and asked to make an unthinkable choice, from the Shrek family ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,’ starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, and Florence Pugh, and ‘The Whale’ - adapted from stage to screen, the film tells the sad tale of a reclusive and obese man named Charlie who wishes to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
You can also hear Simon’s interview with The Whale actor, Brendan Fraser, and director, Darren Aronofsky, with more from them both in Take 2. Mark and Robbie go through this week’s Top 10 and your correspondence.
