FROM THIS WEEK'S ISSUE…
In a Film Special, Brit favourite James McAvoy gives us an exclusive insight into watching his new film Filth (see video above) while sitting next to Irvine Welsh, the man who wrote the book.

McAvoy also tells us what he loved about playing the hateful Bruce Robertson, as well as talking us through his other favourite bent coppers in cinema history.

See if you agree with our interactive Usual Suspects-style line-up of the most despicable police officers in movie history. 

Kevin Maher argues that the road to the Oscars now begins in London and gives his 10 London Film Festival tips, while Andrew Harrison rues the demise of the band movie.

Elsewhere in the issue, we have the season's best trench coats, 10 things television has taught us about sex and a tasting menu of brain food, courtesy of the brilliant Malcolm Gladwell.
