Film show: Making ‘Mincemeat’ of the enemy

Issued on:

Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us why British film “Operation Mincemeat” features all the elements of her favourite kind of movie: superb performances, an ingenious plot and a generous dose of espionage. We get a new perspective on life in Somalia, thanks to the touching tale of “The Gravedigger’s wife”, and we check out an award-winning animation, which tells one woman’s story of cross-cultural discovery in Afghanistan. And the Marvel movie franchise ventures into the horror genre with Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.
