THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY:  Sergio Leone's third 'Dollar' western appropriately showcased even greater style and ambition than before, with Ennio Morricone delivering another memorable score. Set against the background of the American Civil War, it completes the Leone/Clint Eastwood trilogy in epic fashion. The cast line-up now includes Eli Wallach, unforgettable as the ‘ugly’ bandido Tuco, and Van Cleef this time plays the ‘bad’ gunslinger Angel Eyes/Sentenza,with both going up against Eastwood's laconic but deadly The Man With No Name for the prize of a hoard of lost Union army gold. The film’s final shootout in a deserted cemetery is one of the greatest in any western – spaghetti or otherwise. This film frequently appears on 'greatest western of all time' lists.

Deptford Cinema| Wednesday, July 18, 2018 7:30 PM  

Tickets and details here.

The Forever Young Film Club are a new film collective determined to celebrate and reappraise classic coming-of-age and teen films, while also exploring lesser known gems through regular screenings and events.

High school loner Brendan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) discovers a note leading him to a pay phone, where he receives a call from his distraught ex-girlfriend begging him for help. She mentions a "brick” before abruptly hanging up and disappearing completely. Brendan sets about obsessively investigating what happened to her, following various clues that come his way - photographs, a party invitation, a piece of paper with a cryptic sign and the word 'midnight'…

Before The Last Jedi and Looper, there was Brick, Rian Johnson’s slick, genre subverting, teen film noir. Don’t be fooled, Johnson’s debut feature is not some whimsical Bugsy Malone type spoof. It is a serious, stylised, hardboiled thriller, a sharp mind game and darkly amusing take on the isolated world of high school.

A new film club that looks to re-evaualte the coming-of-age drama, Forever Young have director Céline Sciamma's frank, well-acted and vibrant Girlhood as their next film on June 22.

Growing up in the tough Parisian projects with an oppressive home life, 16 year old Marieme, disillusioned with school and her options for the future, is drawn into a stylish and feisty gang of young women. In their arms she finds promise of escape, reinvention and most of all, confidence and worth. However this new found empowerment is not without its challenges.

Alongside dramas Water Lilies (2007) and Tomboy (2011), the third film in director Céline Sciamma's self-proclaimed coming-of-age trilogy once again delicately dabbles with themes of identity and solidarity. Sciamma utilises her trademark of working with non-actors, not only drawing out astonishing performances from newcomers Karidja Touré and Assa Sylla, but creating a very authentic feeling depiction of electric, young female friendship.

Tickets and details

UCL History’s AHRC-funded Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going project presents a special, immersive 1960s cinema-going experience for a show of Bonnie & Clyde (1967). A stylish but controversial mix of romance, crime and violence (advertised as “They’re young. They’re in love. They kill people!”), this landmark film starred Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway and influenced both sixties fashion and music.

The concept of Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going involves the cinema manager, ushers and usherettes welcoming you to your seat, then a 1968 newsreel, advertisements and cartoons, plus the chance to buy boiled sweets and shake-in-the-bag crisps before the feature.This event was created using findings from UCL’s Cultural Memory and British Cinema-going of the 1960s project, which – also financed by the Arts and Humanities Research Council – collected memories from almost 1000 people who went to cinemas in the 1960s, a crucial decade in the history both of cinema and Britain generally.

UCL historians and a group of young actors have worked together on these recollections to develop an immersive cinema event that recreates the experience of cinema-going in the 1960s. You can read more about the project here

Viciously murdering anyone who stands in his way, Tony eventually becomes the biggest drug lord in the state, controlling nearly all the cocaine that comes through Miami.

Artists&Activists-e13.jpg

Barbican Cinema 2-3 June

Tickets and details.

The Barbican hosts a weekend of conversation and films from feminist filmmakers in the 1970s – pioneering films that gave voice to stories and issues long silenced.

The women’s movement empowered women to step behind the camera in larger numbers. The ground-breaking directors highlighted in this series made films outside the mainstream industry, frequently through activist film cooperatives and collectives.  Their work was screened in ‘consciousness-raising’ groups, at political conventions and in other alternative venues, and was often intended to spark discussion and action on women’s issues.

These films offered alternate visions to the mainstream, introducing subjects of interest to women and reshaping how films were made in ways that continue to be influential. Through cinema vérité, animation, experimentation and autobiographical techniques – such as images from dreams and entries from diaries – a new cinematic language was forged to capture a shared experience.

Cigarette Burns presents: The Legend of Hell House in 35mm with director Q&A (20th Dec at Regent St Cinema)

Regent Street Cinema.

 20th December, tickets here.

The notorious purveyor of 35mm cult delights - Cigarette Burns - returns in time for the festive season. And appropriately, a Christmas movie is in the offing...although Christmas by way of the CB means something a little different from snowmen and elfs. And so on the 20th of December, the CB will screen 70s horror flick The Legend of Hell House. 

Scripted by Richard Matheson (Twilight Zone TV show, I am Legend, aka Omega Man, aka Last Man On Earth, Stir of Echos etc) and based on his book Hell House, Legend of Hell House is directed by John Hough (Twins of Evil, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, Watch in the Woods, Escape from Witch Mountain). In the words of the CB "together they managed to create one on the most striking and terrifying haunted house films of all time. 
Sure, it's not a film with knife wielding Santas, angry snowmen, or even revenge seeking trees. Yet, it tells the story of an intrepid, if slightly terrified group of "sensitives" spending the night in a haunted house, a house they first enter on the 20th December. 
The question is - when do they leave....?" 

After the film, Cigarette Burns will  welcome director John Hough in conversation with acclaimed film writer and journalist Kim Newman.

In career that has encompassed such controversial classics as Ms. 45, Bad Lieutenant and Welcome to New York, none of Abel Ferrara’s films have quite managed to match the shock, extremity and downright notorious nature of The Driller Killer. 

Ferrara plays struggling artist Reno, a man pushed to the edge by the economic realities of New York living in the late seventies and the No Wave band practising in the apartment below. His grip on reality soon begins to slip and he takes to stalking the streets with his power tool in search of prey… 

One of the most infamous ‘video nasties’, in part thanks to its drill-in-head sleeve, The Driller Killer has lost none of its power to unnerve and is presented here fully uncut.

Price: £9 (£7 CONCESSIONS) / £5 OFF PEAK

Bertha DocHouse at Curzon Bloomsbury will start a run this week of the Best Documentary, BFI London Film Festival 2016 winner- Starless Dreams from director Mehrdad Oskouei.


It took seven years for veteran documentarian Mehrdad Oskouei to get permission to make a film in a rehabilitation centre for juvenile delinquent women in Iran. The result is an emotionally charged masterpiece which paints a thoughtful and complex portrait of young women at the extreme margins of Iranian society.

Fed up with being incarcerated, most feel conflicted about leaving the relative safety of their confinement where they have found community, and stepping back out into society and often rough circumstances. But the approach of the New Year celebration day sparks dreams of reunions with what they have left behind and hopes of a brighter future.

Elstree 76+ Q&A with director and originalStar Wars cast member

Lexi Cinema, 23 November 6.30pm, tickets here.

This is a sweet, quietly funny and intriguing focus on 10 character actors and extras who featured in Star Wars (filmed at Elstree in 1976).  No one had any idea then that they’d forever be defined by the one or two days they spent on the set of 'yet another' sci-fi movie.  Says one:  "We thought we were making a television show."  Catch up with Dave Prowse (Darth Vader), stormtrooper Laurie Goode and cantina waitress Pam Rose, all of whom stayed in the business but never surpassed their 5 minutes of fame as bitplayers in the film. Paul Blake says with good humor, “I have played Macbeth. I’ve performed with the Royal Court Theatre.  But my epitaph will say, ‘Here lies Greedo.’ ”  And while riding the wave of Star Wars cultdom, the film also takes a step back to look at the arbitrariness of celebrity and it's place in our star-driven culture.

At this special Lexi Cinema screening,  Time Out's resident Star Wars enthusiast and film critic Tom Huddleston hosts Elstree 1976's director, Jon Spiro, the doc's producer, Hank Starrs, and also professional supporting actor, Derek Lyons, who had two roles in Star Wars .

Reel Good Film Club Presents: Under The Shadow at The Lexi Cinema (31 Oct)

Halloween, Mon 31 Oct, 8.30pm) - £7/£5

The Lexi Cinema
The Lexi offers up a slightly alternative Hallowe'en offering - Babak Anvari's allegory of 1980s Iran-Iraq war era oppression which drew favourable comparisons to The Babadook and left Sundance audiences impressed. A.A. Dowd writes in his review: "How many horror movies feature someone fleeing the unholy terror in their home, only to be arrested for not wearing proper attire in public?" 

Read the (very favourable) Smoke Screen review of Under the Shadow here.
