Mindhorn (NC16)

Starring Julian Barratt, Essie Davis

Directed by Sean Foley

Goofy Ridley Scott-produced comedy about Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt), an also-ran actor reprising his one-and-only famous role — the eponymous detective with a bionic eye (“He can literally see the truth!”) — to help the police catch a serial killer who thinks Mindhorn is a real person. If Ron Burgundy and Derek Zoolander were to adopt a baby and raise him on Isle of Man, he’d grow up to be Thorncroft. On Netflix (***)
