(Richard Ayoade, UK 2013, AD, 93mins) Richard Ayoade's (Submarine) latest feature is a fresh and idiosyncratic adaptation of Dostoevsky's novella, laced with a deliciously dry sense of humour.

When new co-worker James arrives, things start rapidly to fall apart - as well as being his exact physical double and shockingly charismatic with women, to Simon's horror, James slowly starts taking over his life...
The Zero Theorem (Terry Gilliam, USA 2014, AD, 106mins) Terry Gilliam recreates the visual style of Brazil in his imaginative and eccentric new film starring Christoph Waltz as a reclusive computer genius trying to work on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the meaning of life (or the lack thereof).

Under the Skin (Jonathan Glazer, UK 2013, AD, 108mins) Jonathan Glazer’s remarkable film is a visually audacious and elliptical sci-fi about an alien (Scarlett Johansson) in human form who prowls the backstreets of Glasgow luring young men in to their death. Filmed sometimes undercover in Scotland, where not all the male victims were knowing participants, this unique blend of fantasy and reality recalls the realism of Ken Loach as much as the surrealism of David Lynch.
