What is it? The latest film from Ben Wheatley (director of Kill List and Down Terrace) tells the story of a couple combining a Lake District caravan holiday with a killing spree.

What we said: “As a satire on the intolerant self-righteousness of suburbia, Sightseers is blackly malicious and brimming with excruciating moments. The picture’s bludgeonings become a little repetitive, and while the banality is part of the point, there’s also a sense that this bloody Bonnie and Clyde lack self-awareness to an almost medical degree. Sightseers may not be a perfect work, but it remains a sight worth seeing.”

Extras: Behind-the-scenes feature, outtakes, trailer.
