The Scotsman’s film vodcast talks movie villains and the latest releases

The very human monster at the heart of Ira Sach’s steamy love-triangle film ‘Passages’ inspired our movie-based chat this week.

We’re talking the best movie baddies this week – from Darth Vader to ‘Mandy’ villain Jeremiah Sand.

Our podcaster’s favourite film of the week, ‘Passages‘, includes a spectacular turn from Franz Rogowski as a movie director so self involved he can’t see when he’s destroying other people’s lives – and his own.

We’re less certain about many of the other films at multiplexes this week, including ‘Blue Beetle’, ‘The Blackening’, and ‘Strays‘ (which managed to very nearly offend Graham – something we previously thought impossible).

But there’s some hope, with a couple of great films appearing at the Edinburgh International Film Festival that will hopefully get distribution deals and be on screens soon – namely ‘Property’ and ‘Raging Grace’.
