Philippa Hawker, film critic for The Age and Fairfax Media, joins the Hyphenates to look over some of the key films of this month: MAGIC MIKE XXL, WOMEN HE’S UNDRESSED and ANT-MAN. Then, with Marvel’s “phase two” coming to an end, we look at the Marvel Studio model, and the unprecedented way in which it’s influencing the rest of Hollywood. Then Philippa takes us through the works and careers of one of French cinema’s most innovative and influential filmmakers, AgnÃ¨s Varda.
