'The Life of Riley'... and Alain Resnais

This week on our cinema show, we take a look at the film "The Life of Riley", the final cinematic offering from Alain Resnais, one of France’s most celebrated filmmakers. Resnais passed away before the film was officially released, but as our film critic Lisa Nesselson explains, he had no plans to stop making movies, even at the ripe old age of 91.

Also on the show: we tell you how a 135 kilo cross-dressing, crass actor earned the name "Divine". We take a look at the documentary about Harris Glen Millstead, which is every bit as outrageous as the actor himself.

Finally, as Captain America’s latest adventure hits cinema screens, we take you back to the humble 2-D beginnings of your favourite onscreen action figures.
