Archipelago 
UK 2010, 15, 114 mins, drama

This is the second film by British director Joanna Hogg (The Souvenir) starring Tom Hiddleston.

ThIs critically acclaimed psychological drama unfolds in the Isles of Scilly off Blighty’s Cornish coast. Three members of the upper-middle-class Leighton family gather for a two-week stay in a beautiful rustic cottage. Edward (Tom Hiddleston) is about to spend a year in Africa working for an NGO. 

‘Subtle, mysterious, murky and utterly distinctive’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian 

‘With its painterly compositions (intentionally reminiscent of Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershoi), interplay between repression and violent emotion, and rural island setting, pic feels more Scandinavian than British, far more akin to Ingmar Bergman than Merchant-Ivory’  Variety

NT Live: Straight Line Crazy

Straight Line Crazy - a new play by David Hare, directed by Nicholas Hytner.

 

Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare’s (Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.

 

For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors. Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction?

 

Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.

Ed_Wood_Anniversary1.jpg

Ed Wood

US 1994, 15, 127 mins, drama/comedy

A 1994 American biographical comedy-drama directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp as Ed Wood, the eponymous cult filmmaker who tries his best to fulfil his dreams, despite his lack of talent. The film concerns the period in Wood's life when he made his best-known movies as well as his relationship with actor Bela Lugosi, played by Martin Landau. Sarah Jessica Parker, Patricia Arquette, Jeffrey Jones, Lisa Marie and Bill Murray are among the supporting cast.


The film was met with critical acclaim upon release, with particular praise for Depp and Landau's performances and the makeup. It eventually became a cult classic and won two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor for Landau and Best Makeup for Rick Baker (who designed Landau's prosthetic makeup). 

'In Depp’s hands, the character is a wide-eyed optimist who believes every take is perfect, regardless of the most obvious blunders. He feels a kinship with Orson Welles because both are outsiders determined to realise their idiosyncratic vision without quite seeing the gulf in talent between the two auteurs. The most remarkable aspect of Ed Wood is how much of it is drawn directly from life’ The Independent

David Bramwell - The Haunted Moustache 

One man’s fantastical and hilarious quest to unravel the occult secrets of a unique family ‘hairloom’.

After inheriting a 100-year old moustache from a mysterious great aunt, David Bramwell embarks on a ten-year odyssey to discover why this curious object has been bequeathed to him, and to find out more about its former ‘owner’, a Victorian freakshow host called Ambrose Oddfellow. It is an adventure that draws him into the underbelly of Brighton – its séances, spiritual churches and a bohemian basement club – where he unwittingly becomes the host of a modern-day freakshow. Coming to believe that his inheritance is possessed, Bramwell joins a cult, dabbles with mind-expanding Amazonian plants and comes close to losing the plot entirely. Does he solve the mystery before his sanity gives in?

 

This award-winning monologue is a supernatural but true coming-of-age story, an exploration into magic and storytelling, and an affectionate portrayal of England’s rich counterculture. It’s quite funny, too.

Winner Sony Award for ‘Best Feature’ for BBC Radio 3’s Between the Ears.

Winner Best Comedy and Outstanding Theatre, Brighton Fringe Awards.

vortex-2-1-e1647024725969.jpg

Vortex
France 2021, 15, 135 mins, drama, narrative

A  critically acclaimed Vortex is the latest masterpiece by legendary Argentinian director Gaspar Noé. It is a tender and powerful exploration of loneliness and love presented in split-screen, compelling and moving in equal measure. The film has been hailed as one of Noé's finest works to date, having received acclaim from critics and audiences, with particular praise for Noe's direction and writing, performances, emotional power, scope, ambition and execution. Having debuted to widespread acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, the film focuses on an elderly couple (played by Françoise Lebrun and Dario Argento) who spend their days in a Paris apartment. Presented in split-screen, we follow the couple as they go about their daily routines both together and alone.

As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and their son (Alex Lutz) struggles to care for them as they enter a vortex of dementia. Compelling and moving in equal measure, this is a departure for Noé – but in terms of scope and ambition, it is one of his finest works to date. Vortex has won Best Film Award at the International Film Festivals in Dublin, San Sebastian and Ghent.

‘One of the finest pictures Noé has made’ ★★★★★ The Guardian

Sarah Jane Morris, Tony Remy & Henry Thomas. Special Guest: Otis Coulter

“With her magical musical lieutenants on either side of her, Sarah Jane proceeded to thrill the audience with her extraordinary voice. A voice that at times is so deep that you feel you are down with her at the bottom of the ocean.

Boy, can she sing. Boy, can she entertain. Boy, is she an advert for everything that is magnificent about live music.

She was supported at the start - and again at the end of her second  set - by her talented son Otis Coulter with a voice reminiscent of Anohni (Antony and the Johnsons). For sure, Otis, who writes lyrics from the heart, has one hell of a musical future ahead of him if that is what he wants”  - Live gig review from Close-Up Culture
