CINEMA MAR - APR 2014 box office 024 7652 4524

HELLO Away from the awards candidates, there was a cluster of films that I saw at film festivals last year that made me sit up and take notice: here was something fresh and different. I loved Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, a wry, romantic, rock’n’roll vampire movie which is not much about rock’n’roll nor vampires, but a glorious piece of romantic decadence with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton looking wonderful and rejoicing in a droll script. Under the Skin is visually arresting and challenging. It is an updated Man Who Fell to Earth in Glasgow. Jonathan Glazer has created a truly unique film that fuses fantasy with mundane reality. I warmly encourage you to see both of these films as they will take you somewhere new. There’s also the opportunity to see several award contenders that you may have missed the first time round. One that I would highlight is The Great Beauty, the visually rich Felliniesque portrait of Rome which makes as strong a case as you may ever need to see films on the big screen. Other big screen events include a couple of reissues: Gone With the Wind, which sold out at the Christmas screening, and another epic, The Godfather Part II, will be shown at the end of April, allowing us to see it properly for the first time in thirty years. There are also some fascinating documentaries to provoke discussion. Contemporary maverick film-maker Alex Gibney has made The Armstrong Lie, the portrait of cyclist Lance Armstrong which transforms from hymn of praise to damning indictment of a liar and a cheat. The Square is a view of the Egyptian revolution from street level in Tahrir Square, which is by turns exhilarating and terrifying.

La Belle et la Bête PG

Winner of three Golden Globes, and nominated for 10 Academy Awards.

In 2009, Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (We Steal Secrets) began filming on what started out as a documentary on Lance Armstrong’s return to competitive cycling. Gibney was allowed unprecedented access to the cyclist as he prepared for the Tour de France. When the doping allegations turned into a federal investigation and the truth came out, Gibney changed his former ‘comeback’ movie into a character study about lies, power and the desire to believe a myth. “CRITICAL, SOBERING AND, NATURALLY, FASCINATING FILM.” Variety
