Mon 18 Mar

Burning (Beoning)
Lee Chang-Dong | South Korea | 2018 | 148m | 15 (contains subtitles)

The FavouriteAdapted from Haruki Murakami's short story ‘Barn Burning’, this is a psychological thriller of obsessive love that lingers on expressionistic moments.

Murakami is notoriously difficult to adapt and South Korean director Lee Chang Dong wisely takes just the bare bones of the writer’s short story Barn Burning to deliver a brilliantly executed, abstract but intellectually stimulating portrait of working class frustrations and contemporary alienation. A psychological thriller that lingers on expressionistic moments, it also finds time to incorporate Miles Davis’s Générique from Malle’s ‘Lift to the Scaffold’.

Screening as part of the Monday Night Film Club. The film will be preceded by a short intro and all are welcome to stay on for the post-film discussion, complimentary tea and coffee will be made available.

Mike Mitchell | Denmark, Norway, Australia, USA | 2018 | 106m | PG

The battle to defeat the enemy and restore harmony to the LEGO universe takes Emmet, Lucy, Batman and the rest of their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds that test their courage and creativity.

"Fuelled by adrenaline, sugar and plastic, The Lego Movie’s Second Part does not entirely reinvent the brick from the First Part. But when the formula is this clever and fun, should we even care?", Empire

Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Marielle Heller | USA | 2018 | 106m | 15

Beautiful BoyThe multi-award nominated comedy drama about celebrity biographer Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) who made her living profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead and Estee Lauder. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (brilliantly played by Richard E. Grant).

"Dowdy, half-soused, and frowning for nearly the entire running time, McCarthy earns nearly as many laughs playing this curmudgeonly cat lady as she does in her more irrepressible comedic parts", Variety

"Melissa McCarthy is magnificent as an odious literary forger abetted by Richard E Grant as her lounge-lizard drinking buddy"***** The Guardian

Withnail & I
Bruce Robinson | UK | 1987 | 105m | 15

ColetteWith Richard E. Grant being nominated left, right and centre for his performance as Jack in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' what better time to revisit his performance as the mighty Withnail in possibly the finest cult film known to humanity!

Camden Town, the arse-end of the sixties. Two struggling, unemployed actors decide some respite is in order and so depart their miserable flat for a week in the Lake District – one that will involve rain, booze, minimal supplies, a randy bull and an even randier Uncle Monty.
Perfectly cast – with career-defining roles for Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown – and crammed with irresistibly quotable dialogue, WITHNAIL and I is a sheer delight, even on the umpteenth viewing.

If Beale Street Could Talk
Barry Jenkins | USA | 2018 | 119m | 15

Beautiful BoyDirector Jenkins follows up his award winning ‘Moonlight’ with a truly superb love story based on the novel by James Baldwin. In early 1970s Harlem, wife-to-be Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Fonny. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together, but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.

How this wasn't nominated in the Best Film category at this year's BAFTA Awards we just don't know. In our view, a far, far better film than 'Moonlight'.
