Pedro Almodóvar’s 20th film arrives at a time when the Spanish director’s work is more revered than ever in the UK. Earlier this year, Oxford University awarded him an honorary…

‘Sausage Party’ Movie Review

There are several things in Sausage Party, the deeply weird and very funny new animation from the twisted minds of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill, that can almost…
