We do our best to avoid Suicide Squad this week by supporting independant cinema in the best way possible. We look at Taryn Brumfitt’s documentary about body image – Embrace. Sticking in Australia, we look at Ivan Sen’s latest Detective Jay Swan story Goldstone. Swerving back into Revelation Film Festival territory, we look at ‘that farting corpse’ film – Swiss Army Man. Sticking with the scatalogical, we look at the documentary Nuts! – a film about a man who implants goat testicles into people. Wrapping up we take a look at the latest Amy Berg film Janis: Little Girl Blue – the documentary on singer/musician Janis Joplin. The rain joins us at the end to say, hurry up, wrap it up now people.
