Both A Woman as Eve and The Cool Lakes of Death were the Dutch entries for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ at the Academy Awards.

It sees Brendan Gleeson (Cold Mountain) and Colin Farrell (The Lobster) in career defining, critically acclaimed performances, as a pair of hired heavies sent to lie low in the Belgian city after a botched hit, with the Daily Express saying 'Gleeson is a delight and Farrell gives his best performance'.

Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel) stars as their boss and the line-up also features Elizabeth Berrington (Good Omens), Clemence Poesy (The Tunnel) and Eric Godon (The Missing).

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's dystopian sci-fi epic World on a Wire was way ahead of its time, with fascinating themes that would later be explored in films such as The Matrix. Now this hugely influential classic arrives in a stunningly restored Standard Edition Bluray on 26 April from Second Sight.

Simulacron 1 is a highly advanced project, designed to elevate conventional computer technology to a new level by creating a virtual reality inhabited by computer-generated people or 'identity units'. When the head of the project dies mysteriously after showing signs of mental disturbance, Dr Stiller becomes his successor. As he begins to probe deeper into Simulacron, the line between the real and virtual world becomes increasingly blurred and his own existence is questioned.

• "Observing Fassbinder" a tribute to photographer Peter Gauhe
• "Looking Ahead to Today" documentary

In a near-future world, where technology controls everything, technophobe Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green - The Invitation, Spider-Man: Homecoming) is the victim of a brutal mugging that leaves his wife dead and him paralysed. A reclusive billionaire inventor offers him an experimental cure, an A.I. implant called STEM. Grey accepts and is immediately transformed into an unstoppable killing machine with enhanced strength and agility. Now it's payback time. Genre specialist Blumhouse and the visionary creator of the Saw franchise team up to create an instant cyberpunk classic.
