THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES
Thurs 9th Friday 10th December @ 8pm /2
(Juan Jose Campanella / 2010 / Argentina & Spain / 129 minutes / cert 18)
A quarter of a century of Argentina's dirty war and period of dictatorship is the time frame for this psychological thriller, winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. When an ex-cop decides to write a novel about one of his unresolved homicide cases, he reopens painful memories and also rekindles his love for his former superior. Along the way, a close relationship forms between between the investigator and the grieving widower of the victim. But both men must pay a price for their obsession with justice and retribution.
ENTER THE VOID
(Sunday 30th January Monday 31st January 2011 / 8pm / £4/3)
(Gaspar Noé / France / Germany / Italy / 2009 / Certificate 18)
Described by director Gasper Noé as ‘a psychedelic melodrama’, this is his long-awaited follow up to 2002’s ‘Irréversible’, and every bit as controversial.
It’s shot entirely from the point of view of its leading character, Oscar, an American living in Tokyo with his sister Linda. He’s a drug dealer, and she’s a stripper. One day, Oscar is shot and killed, and from that point on we see everything from the perspective of his spirit, flying above the city and keeping his promise never to abandon his sister.
Haunted by childhood memories, gliding disorientated through the neon fireworks of Tokyo’s hedonistic nightlife, his spirit vision constantly shifts between the past and the present, reality and the spiritual, gazing unflinchingly at the sordid and the sometimes beautiful.
This is visually and technically ambitious film-making; intense, hallucinogenic, immersive, and graphic. Love it or hate it, you will be provoked.
