Looper 15 Fri 2 – Thu 8 Nov Dir: Rian Johnson US 2012 119mins Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Paul Dano, Emily Blunt
The highlight of this programme is the visit of esteemed Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky, assistant to Tarkovsky, maker of Asya’s Happiness, The Runaway Train and The Inner Circle; he has worked in Soviet Russia, Europe and Hollywood. He will talk about his life and films after the screening of Uncle Vanya on Wed 21 Nov.
Other highlights from Toronto International Film Festival include Ben Affleck’s intelligent political thriller Argo where truth is stranger than fiction. Sally Potter’s Ginger and Rosa reflects on what it was to be 17 in 1962, on the cusp of social and political change and The Sapphires will put a smile on your face and a skip in your step as it charts the progress of a quartet of young Aboriginal singers who go to entertain the troops in Vietnam in 1968. For the festivities, Debbie Isitt’s Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger goes back to school where David Tennant has joined the staff and Mike Newell’s adaptation of Great Expectations with a script by David Nicholls (One Day) gives greater voice to the female roles. With such an abundance of riches, it makes sense to save money by becoming a Film Member.

On The Road
This is also the week of the French Film Festival UK 2012, flourishing a bunch of fresh new titles from across the Channel. Harvesting the pick of the crop from other festivals, Amour, winner of the Palme d’Or in Cannes, screens in November. This is probably the best film of the year, a profoundly emotional study of love and decline with exceptional performances by Jean Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva. If this is not the best film of the year, then The Master probably is. Philip Seymour Hoffman delivers an Orson Welles-sized performance as the originator of a cult while Joaquin Phoenix plays a Joseph Cotten role in a Citizen Kane of a movie by Paul Thomas Anderson.
Director Rian Johnson reteams with his Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt in this time-travelling sci-fi tale set in a dystopian future. Gordon-Levitt plays a ‘looper’ called Joe, a contract killer who disposes of victims sent back from 30 years into the future. When his older self (played by Bruce Willis) turns up as one of his targets, both Joes must avert the course of the future to survive.
Based on Jack Kerouac’s defining post-war American novel, On the Road is a tale of the quest for meaning and a sense of belonging, set against a backdrop of experimentation: with art, with sex and with drugs. The cast is a Who’s Who of hot young actors, including Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams and Kirsten Dunst.

Fri 2 & Sat 3 Nov Dir: Nicolas Roeg UK 1971 101mins Cast: Jenny Agutter, Lucien John, David Gulpilil, John Meillon, Robert McDarra
On a trip to a local park a young, successful photographer (Hemmings) takes a picture of a mysterious beauty (Redgrave), but soon discovers something disturbing when he develops the photos. A seminal film of the 60s, featuring dialogue written by Bond, Blow-Up was nominated for a Best Screenplay Academy Award and won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1967.
Walkabout, the 1971 film from director Nicolas Roeg stars Jenny Agutter and Luc Roeg as two young children who are stranded in the Australian outback and forced to cope on their own. In the wilderness they meet an Aborigine on walkabout, a ritualistic separation from his tribe. A startling film, from a script by Edward Bond. 03

Shakespeare on Screen
Sat 3 Nov 11am – 3.30pm
Sat 24 Nov 11am – 3.30pm
Following the success of the Nordic Noir Film Talk back in March, Barry Forshaw (author of British Crime Film) and the much-respected film critic Nigel Floyd return to Warwick Arts Centre, this time to talk about this country’s long and impressive tradition of crime movies, from the 1930s to the present – with the genre in rude health.
The clash of personalities and political visions at the heart of Shakespeare’s masterpiece Julius Caesar has drawn a host of extraordinary actors in front of the camera and now the long-term prisoners in the Taviani Brothers’ Caesar Must Die.
They will also introduce and discuss the disturbing but deeply compelling crime movie, Kill List, a film that moves at times into horror film territory.
Tony Howard, Professor of English at University of Warwick, delves into the highs and lows of portraying Julius Caesar on screen. This talk will include a preview screening of Caesar Must Die, winner of the Golden Bear at Berlin Film Festival.

Neighbourhood suspicions arise when a cross is stolen from a local graveyard.
From director Sally Potter (Orlando) comes a tale of two best friends in 1960s London, who share everything. The two teenage girls – Ginger and Rosa – are inseparable; they play truant together, discuss religion, politics and hairstyles, and dream of lives bigger than their mothers’ frustrated domesticity. As the Cold War meets the sexual revolution, and the threat of nuclear holocaust escalates, the lifelong friendship of the two girls is shattered - by the clash of desire and the determination to survive.

Part espionage thriller, part entertaining movie-business satire, it tells the tale of a CIA operative (Affleck) who attempts to rescue six American diplomats from Iran with a plan so absurd it might actually work. Concocting a fake sci-fi movie “Argo”, complete with script and director, he attempts to pass off the diplomats as a Canadian film crew in order to get them out of the country. 10

Written and directed by Michael Haneke (Hidden), Amour has provoked an outpouring of emotion from critics and audiences alike, winning the 2012 Palme D’Or at Cannes. Taking place almost entirely in their small flat, Georges (Trintignant) and Anne (Riva) are a blissfully happy couple in their eighties. When Anne suffers a series of strokes, Georges is left struggling to care for the wife he promised he would never put in a home. An absorbing and intimate portrait of love and ageing, and the unrelenting sadness of losing the one you love.
A critical hit and one of the most talked-about films on the festival circuit, director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will be Blood) returns with this self-penned tale of a drifter, and the charismatic cult figure he falls in with, said to be inspired by the controversial Scientology religion. Joaquin Phoenix is Freddie, a former sailor who is struggling to adapt to life in the aftermath of WWII. Unable to hold down a job and in possession of a short fuse, he finds guidance in the shape of Lancaster Dodds (Hoffman), a man of influence and a charismatic leader, who is not all that he seems.

A perfect Christmas family film, to be enjoyed with plenty of humbugs! 11

The seminal David Lean epic returns to the big screen in this new digital print in honour of its 50th anniversary. The film made a star of lead actor Peter O’Toole and won seven Academy Awards in 1963, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Cinematography. Recounting the life of the infamous and enigmatic military man T.E Lawrence, the film takes in his exploits in the desert, where he led attacks on Aqaba and Damascus.
A fantastic Christmas treat for all the family, partly filmed right here in Coventry. Following the success of the first Nativity! film in 2009, local director Debbie Issit returns with a sequel, with David Tennant as the new teacher at struggling primary school, St Bernadette’s. Intent on taking his rag-tag bunch of schoolchildren on a road-trip to the National ‘Song for Christmas’ competition, they get lost along the way and find themselves struggling across the country in a desperate bid to make it on time.
