Nacho Vigalondo's monster mash is the most bizarre film to open so far this year – and the best movie ever to be directed by a guy named Nacho. In South Korea, a Godzilla-like creature is on the rampage, seemingly aping the moods and the moves of a blackout-drunk party girl, played by Anne Hathaway. Vigalondo is usually constricted by low budgets (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), but this time the Spanish writer-director achieves kaiju nirvana. Still, it's the gender politics at the heart of the personal drama that gives Colossal its true size.
