McQueen (15)

film-friday-banner.png

A personal look at the extraordinary life, career and artistry of Alexander McQueen.
Through exclusive interviews with his closest friends and family, recovered archives, exquisite visuals and music, McQueen is an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary.

The late British genius and award-winning designer Alexander McQueen was renowned for pushing the boundaries of fashion. Originally trained on Savile Row before working with the famous theatrical costumiers Angels and Bermans, it is no wonder he formed a signature style of mixing razor-sharp tailoring with melodramatic silhouettes and directional cuts.
Directed by Ian Bonhote and co-directed / written by Peter Ettedgui, McQueen offers an intimate, well-sourced, and overall moving look at a young life and brilliant career that were tragically cut short.

“Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment” – Alexander McQueen

An American Werewolf in London (15)

film-friday-banner.png

Beginning with two American hikers losing their way on the Yorkshire moors, An American Werewolf in London provides one of horror cinema’s most perfect balances of laughs and scares.

Two American college students David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), on a walking tour of Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed.  As David heals in the hospital, he’s plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns David that he is becoming a werewolf.

When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast.  Director John Landis’ film is an excellent, seamless melding of comedy and horror, with a surprising amount of brutality and one of the most wonderfully dark, abrupt conclusions ever made and the man-to-wolf transformation scene is still a marvel.

A Quiet Place (15)

film-friday-banner.png

A family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.

On a devastated Earth overrun by lethal and ever-hearing predators of a possible extrater- restrial origin, the Abbotts struggle to survive in a desolate New York City in a new era of utter silence. As this new type of invader is attracted to noise, even the slightest of sounds can be deadly; however, it’s already been twelve months since the powerful monsters’ first sightings, and this resilient family still stands strong. To learn the rules of survival in this muted dystopia is essential; nevertheless, an otherwise joyous event is threatening an already frail stability. Now, more than ever, don’t make a sound.

“In its simplicity and punch, this is a film that feels as if it could have been made decades ago, in the classic age of Planet of the Apes or The Omega Man.”

She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley-and the creation of her immortal monster-is nearly as fantastical as her fiction.

So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channeled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.

Leave No Trace (PG)

film-friday-banner.png

Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie)live a perfect but mysterious existence in Forest Park, a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon rarely making contact with the world. But when a small mistake tips them off to authorities, they are sent on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a place to call their own.

Leave No Trace takes an effectively low-key ap- proach to a potentially sensationalistic story and further benefits from brilliant work by Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie.

Directed by Debra Granik from a script adapted by Granik and Anne Rosellini, Leave No Trace takes an effectively low-key approach to a poten- tially sensationalistic story.

“It’s a pitch-perfect performance around which Granik builds her flawless, deeply affecting film.”

The Rider

film-friday-banner.png

A Lyrical Portrait of Life After the Rodeo, The Rider is primarily concerned with the body and brain of Brady (Brady Jandreau) a rising rodeo champ whose career is cut short by a major head injury. 

Brady Blackburn, a rodeo rider with some renown, learned everything he knows about horses and riding from his parents, Wayne and the now deceased Mari Blackburn. Brady is recovering from a fall off a horse in a rodeo, the most serious of the injuries being a skull fracture which required a metal plate being inserted into his head. Brady is determined to get back up onto the literal and proverbial horse as quickly as possible as being a cowboy is all he knows. But deep in his heart he knows that returning to the rodeo may have too many risks.  

In telling the story of a disappearing slice of America, Director Chloé Zhao has created a portrait of resilience, and the bonds that last even after the rodeo’s over.

film-friday-banner.png

Jacques (Vincent Lindon) is a journalist at a large regional newspaper in France. His reputation as an impartial and talented investigator attracts the attention of the Vatican who recruits him for a special task; taking part of a committee to investigate the veracity of a saintly apparition in a small French village - a true canonical investigation. Upon his arrival, he meets the young and sensitive Anna who claims to have personally witnessed the apparition of the Virgin Mary. 

Confronted with opposing views from clergy members and skeptics in the group, Jacques gradually uncovers the hidden motivations and pressures at work and sees his beliefs system profoundly shaken.

Inspired by the true story of Saint Bernadette of Lourdes, A young girl who, at the age of 14, had all together 18 apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the late 1850s, Xavier Giannoli's film moves slowly but with considerable power as it explores faith, doubt, mass hysteria and the desperate human need for supernatural reassurance.

This uproarious comedy of errors wonderfully distills the logistical absurdity of such formally traditional celebrations with biting satire, broad pratfalls, and expertly rendered caricature.

A Sunday In Hell - Wheel2Reel Film with Q&A

sunday in hell web poster.jpg

The film follows the French Paris-Roubaix spring classic, notorious for the hellish paves or cobbled roads of the north "which are no longer used for civilised traffic but only for transporting cattle - and for cycle races". We are there from the dawn preparations and rituals on the outskirts of Paris and through the rigours of the race with special focus on a number of prominent cyclists to the final outcome on the Roubaix cycle track - followed by the filthy riders taking their showers. 

Gunner Møller Pedersen's music and a very lively sound picture serve the drama and members of the chorus of the Royal Danish Opera use the words "Paris - Roubaix - L'enfer du nord" to add a patina of the sublime.

The images of the riders crossing the misshapen cobble sin enormous clouds of dust deserves emphasis as one of the most powerful images ever captured from the world of cycling.

With LIVE Q&A from William Fotheringham.  
The renowned Cycling journalist will be discussing his recent book Sunday in Hell: Behind the Lens of the Greatest Cycling Film of All Time.

Blackkklansman (15)

film-friday-banner.png

Visionary filmmaker  Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman is a broad satirical comedy of the 1970’s American race war and a parable of passing for black and passing for white.  Based on the true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. 

The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. 

Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award (R) winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman uses history to offer bitingly trenchant commentary on current events -- and brings out some of Spike Lee's hardest-hitting work in decades along the way.

Winning the grand jury price at Sundance Film Festival, The Miseducation of Cameron Post tells its timely coming-of-age story with wit, compassion, and an affecting overall generosity of spirit.

Cold War (15)

film-friday-banner.png

Pawel Pawlikowski follows his Oscar-winning Ida with the stunning Cold War, an epic romance set against the backdrop of Europe after World War II. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, it spans decades and nations to tell a love story that is as tragic as it is moving, and as transportive as it is honest.

In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and Zula (Joanna Kulig) fall deeply, obses- sively and destructively in love. As performing mu- sicians forced to play into the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the creative freedom of the West. But one day, as they spot their chance to make a break for Paris, both make a split decision that will mark their lives forever. As the years march on in the wake of that moment, Wiktor and Zula watch the world changing around them, always struggling to find their moment in time.

Winner of the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival 2018, Pawlikowski melds the per- sonal with the political to exquisite effect. Set to
a soundtrack that takes you from the rustic folk songs of rural Poland to the sultry jazz of a Paris basement bar, it’s a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent – and a heartbreaking portrait of ill-fated love.

Vertigo (PG)

film-friday-banner.png

Dismissed when first released yet later heralded as one of director Alfred Hitchcock’s  finest  films this adaptation of the French novel D’entre Les Morts weaves an intricate web of obsession and deceit.

James Stewart plays ex-cop Scottie, invalided out of the police due to vertigo brought on by a traumatic and shaming calamity during a roof top chase. He is hired by old schoolfriend Gavin Elster (Tom Helmore) for a strange job: to shadow his beautiful and enigmatic wife Madeline (Kim Novak) whose behaviour is worrying him. This bizarre situation unlocks lonely Scottie’s gallantry and romanticism and he falls passionately in love with this mysterious, troubled woman with her quiet, wondering voice and the manner of a sleepwalker.

Supported by Bernard Herrmann’s hypnotic score and the grand cityscapes of San Francisco, Vertigo takes the audiences through twists and turns, challenging their preconceptions about the characters and events.

60 years a er it’s original release, Vertigo is an unpredictable scary thriller that doubles as a mournful meditation on love, loss, and human comfort.

“Hitchcock’s masterpiece, rereleased a er 60 years, combines his  air for psychological shocks with a genius for dapper stylishness.”

When Baldvin (Sigurður Sigurjónsson) and Inga’s (Edda Björgvinsdóttir) next-door neighbours complain that a tree in the couple’s backyard casts a shadow over their sun deck, what starts off as a typical spat between suburbanites soon spirals violently and unexpectedly out of control.

As the dispute with the neighbours intensifies, property is damaged, pets mysteriously go missing, security cameras are being installed and there is a rumor that the neighbour was seen with a chainsaw.

Director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson leads viewers into decidedly bleak territory, which is leavened by sly intelligence and a surprising sense of humor.

“Sigurdsson has crafted an exhilaratingly sly dark comedy about ordinary suburbanite folk going from unglued to unhinged to ultimately undone.”

Proving himself to be one of the most gifted, insightful and versatile directors working today, Andrew Haigh (45 Years, Weekend) returns with Lean on Pete, a powerfully moving and deeply emotional story about a young boy’s search for belonging on the fringes of contemporary American society. 

Fifteen-year-old Charley lives with his alcoholic father (Travis Fimmel) in a run-down house on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. In an effort to help his dad stay afloat, Charley takes a job at a local racetrack where he befriends jaded trainer Del (Steve Buscemi) and burnt-out jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny) while caring for an aging horse named Lean on Pete. But as things break down at home and Del announces Pete will be sold to an uncertain fate, the burden becomes too great for Charley to bear and he heads out into the vast American wilderness with Pete in tow. 

Featuring an incredible breakout performance by Charlie Plummer and shot in mesmerising style, Lean on Pete is a poignant, compassionate and heart-rending portrait of love, loss and acceptance that resonates with profound humanity.

Zama is the story of Diego de Zama, an 18th century administrator in the service of imperial Spain, whose courageous exploits in battle long ago won him a sinecure as a magistrate in the brutally remote outpost of what is now Asunción, on the Paraguay River. Now he waits endlessly, frantically, desperately for news of the more glamorous and prestigious posting he once assumed would quickly follow and that would reunite him with his wife and children, left behind years before in Buenos Aires.

Horror and despair hover just out of the frame of Lucrecia Martel’s mysterious and dreamlike movie. Adapted from the 1956 novel by the Argentinian author Antonio di Benedetto, Zama, with its eerie andante tempo and period setting, returns Martel to her themes of guilt, sex and shame whilst giving her ideas a new theatrical and formal grandeur

Divided tells the story of an expedition that didn’t quite go to plan, but was all the richer for it.
 
The Tour Divide route follows the Continental Divide down the spine of the USA. It covers a distance more than three times the length of the UK, with just under 20 Everests’ worth of climbing. The rules are simple: eat and sleep when you like, but the clock never stops. Follow the exact route. Remain completely self-supported. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, racers have to dodge bears, lightning storms, snow and snakes.
Lee and Rickie self-filmed the whole way. This is the story of their adventure. It’s not a straightforward one. None of the best stories are.

The Happy Prince (15)

The Happy Prince (15)

Rupert Everett reprises the role he has previously undertaken on stage and screen, in a biographical
dramatisation of Oscar Wilde’s final years. 

A previously untold story of the poet’s final days, Everett presents a kaleidoscopic portrait of the poet as a penniless old man and spent creative force, reflecting on the lives he lived and the relationships he had. 

Told with detached humour and irony the story reflects the difficulties he faced in life with a dramatic fall from fame and the prejudice and rejection he faced from the public and high society. A poignant piece with captivating performances from Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Emily Watson and Colin Morgan.

Dir: Rupert Everett | Germany/Belgium/UK/Italy | 2018 | 105 mins
