Ride, Rise, Roar
David Byrne is nearly sixty years old, and he’s been in the music industry for almost forty of those years. He doesn’t need to be dancing like a fool on stage, or wearing a tutu. People know him, and they respect his work. So why does he do it? This is the question that the concert film Ride, Rise, Roar attempts to answer. Following the creation and birth of his latest tour, the fusion of dance and music that was The Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno Tour, the film looks at the rehearsal process and also talks to Byrne’s band members, the dancers and choreographers as well as Byrne himself.

X Men: First Class
The appearance of Matthew Vaughn’s X Men: First Class indicates that blockbuster season is well and truly upon us. Taking us back to 1963 when Professor X was just Xavier and Magneto was Erik, it charts the X Men’s foundations. Teaming Beast (Nicholas Hoult, yes, him out of About A Boy) with Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique the film takes the original mutants back to their roots to face Kevin Bacon’s baddie.

Senna charts Brazillian Formula One Driver’s Ayrton Senna’s life. Dying at the age of 34 after winning the world championship an impressive three times, the documentary is sure to be a hit with F1 fans.
