IT MUST BE HEAVEN (106 minutes) E
The first feature in a decade from Palestinian writer-director Elia Sulieman (Divine Intervention) sees him once again playing “himself” as the mostly passive, silent onlooker of a string of absurdist vignettes. The loose plot takes him gradually further west, echoing his real-life experience as an artist best-known outside his homeland. Screens as part of the Palestinian Film Festival, with short Area C. Cinema Nova, Sat 2 Nov, 6.30pm.
47 METRES DOWN: UNCAGED (90 minutes) M
Sometimes verging on abstraction, Johannes Roberts’ sequel to his 2017 shark attack movie 47 Metres Down is a pure, rather beautiful example of genre as ritual. The story follows four young women on a journey to the underworld, in the form of a submerged Mayan city where danger lurks. General.
READY OR NOT (94 minutes) MA
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s horror-comedy combines bloody slapstick with satire of the 1 per cent. Australia’s Samara Weaving is a bride terrorised on her wedding night by her moneyed in-laws, among them Andie MacDowell and Adam Brody. General.
