The Assassin, Jack Thorne, Attacking the Devil, Peter May

The Assassin is the first film from Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-Hsien for 8 years and his take on 'wuxia', a martial hero genre of Chinese fiction traditionally found in literature. The plot re-imagines a Tang Dynasty legend about a female assassin, and stars Shu Qi. Mark Eccleston reviews. Crime writer Peter May returns to the Hebrides for his latest novel, Coffin Road, in which a man washed up on a beach with no memory of who he is, searches for clues to an identity which may prove him a murderer. Attacking the Devil: Harold Evans and the Last Nazi War Crime is a new film documentary which charts Harold Evans's tenure as editor of The Sunday Times. The film's co-directors Jacqui and David Morris discuss the film and their focus in particular on the investigation by Evans's Insight team to expose the truth behind the thalidomide scandal of the late 50s and early 60s, that left thousands of babies born with severe physical deformities.
