Though there isn’t exactly a shortage of Oasis docs, it’s testament to the enduring appeal of the bros with two eyebrows between them that their story is given a go time and time again. The difference with Supersonic (out yesterday) is the involvement of the “mad ferrets” themselves and the wealth of unseen footage culled from around the world, with director Mat Whitecross charting the band’s rise from a bunker in Burnage to their record-breaking shows at Knebworth in 1996. Fan or not, it’s a cracking tale. But if that’s not enough Gallagher for you, there’s also an Oasis exhibition, Chasing The Sun, heading to Manchester’s Old Granada Studios from 14 October, where you’ll be able to recreate the cover of Definitely Maybe in a life-size replica of Bonehead’s living room.
Supersonic is out now; Chasing The Sun is at Old Granada Studios from 14-25 October
This portrait of a young gang roadtripping through backwater America – including Shia LaBeouf and newcomer Sasha Lane – is the most gripping youth movie in recent memory.
American Honey is out 14 October
Matthew Macfadyen dusts off the bowler hat, gives his upper lip a good English stiffening and takes to the mean streets of Whitechapel for the fifth and final series of Amazon Prime’s hugely enjoyable period detect-’em-up. With the end in sight, who will survive?
Available to stream 12 October
Skinheads are one of the most perplexing British subcultures. How did a movement that grew out a love for Jamaican ska music become associated with racist thuggery? In this BBC4 doc, Don Letts reveals how the culture’s powerful appeal to disenfranchised white working-class youth was hijacked by neo-Nazi groups, leading to a fight for the soul of the skinhead.

When it comes to Turner talking points (and, let’s be honest, Instagram bait), Anthea Hamilton’s massive bum is up there with Tracy Emin’s bed and Damien Hirst’s cow. But also worthy of your carefully curated feed is her Brick Suit (pictured, above), which would have looked very fetching at the Labour party conference. Also on show are Josephine Pryde’s photos, Helen Marten’s curious junk assemblages and Michael Dean’s abstract scenes of corrugated iron and wood.
At Tate Britain until 2 January
David Shrigley’s fourth plinth
If any unnervingly jabby, doomily bronzed reminder was needed that Britain is going to seed, then the artist David Shrigley’s sarky, spindly thumb (inset, left) is up there with Jeremy Hunt being in charge of something more complex than a box of gravel. And it is literally up there, too, on the fourth plinth, presiding over Trafalgar Square and awaiting the inevitable games of traffic cone hoopla.
At Trafalgar Square now
This all-male dance troupe is one of the most thrilling around, and its latest work – a double bill called Life, which was at Sadler’s Wells earlier this year and goes on tour from 12 October – is no different. First comes Rabbit by Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg, featuring the Boyz in bunny masks; then Fiction, by Javier de Frutos – once censored by the BBC for his show featuring pregnant nuns – where dancers stage De Frutos’s death.
Your last chance to see this prize-winning debut play from Katherine Soper, which runs at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Studio until 15 October, before it heads to London’s Royal Court next year. It follows Tasmin, working in a factory on a zero-hours contract by day and caring for her brother Dean by night. Such is its emotional heft, you’ll be watching with a “clenched stomach”, says our Lyn Gardner.
It’s 20 years since Mark Ravenhill’s controversial play defined the phenomenon of “in-yer-face theatre” with its graphic scenes of vomiting, casual violence, drug-taking and anal sex. The profane consumerist parable is being revived at London’s Lyric Hammersmith, with Sophie Wu (AKA Heather from Fresh Meat) as Lulu.
To 5 November
Liverpool’s Echo Arena will be lit tonight as the very best in grime, hip-hop, garage, reggae and Afrobeats tear it up. Returning smoothster Craig David, Stormzy, Damian Marley, Desiigner, Giggs, Lady Leshurr and Sean Paul are just some of the acts playing across for all ages across two stages (sadly the Guide’s guest MC slot is still tbc).
