A hole in my heart
last night kake and I went to A hole in my heart which is a bizarre swedish film.
Lots of odd things happen. Time seems very fluid. Some of the scenes are quite disturbing.

Mind Hacks
Niftiness. Anyone interested?

Edit: Due to promise of beer elsewhere I think I'm going to have to bail on this. non_trivial will be there though so do turn up, you won't be on your lonesome.

Let the games begin
Movie poll below.Collapse )

Edit: we appear to have two winners: Dr. Strangelove (jhaelan) and Goodfellas (easterbunny). Oh, the shame.
3:39 pm
[easterbunny]
Surely you *must* have seen that one.
Any more movies for Humiliation? Speak now or be forever left out of the poll.

Movie madness
I would like to propose a friendly game of Humiliation similar to the one owlfish has just done in her journal with books. Rules:

1) Comment with a film that you really really should have seen.
2) Tomorrow I'll make a poll listing all the movies - tick the box for each movie that you *have* seen.
3) One point is gained for each time your movie's box is ticked - the winner is the movie with the most points.

I've never seen Goodfellas.

Current Mood: blushing

Tartovsky season at the NFT
The NFT is having a Tartovsky season, showing (amongst others) Solaris. Anyone interested in a 2-1/2 hour classic slow space epic?

Anyone fancy this...?
STOP PRESS!
Sneak Preview of the award-winning film, DIG!

Wednesday, March 2nd at The Riverside Cinema at 6.55pm

A feature length documentary shot over seven years, DIG! chronicles the tumultuous relationship between the lead singers of two rock bands, The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jones Town Massacre. Alternating footage of rock and roll binges, gigs that end in on-stage brawls and on-the-road interviews, the film ponders brilliance, madness, friendship and the status of artistic integrity in the commercial music business.

"Fascinating! A combustible rock chronicle. The richly deserving winner of the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance." Time Out New York


With special thanks to Tartan Films.

I've had a look at their site and have come up with a list of films I want to go and see. This list will get chopped down as I realise how much it will cost, but I'll probably pick up some tickets on Sunday as I will be at the Curzon anyway...

If you want any tickets for the festival and can't be bothered to get them yourself, let me know and I'll melt my credit card for a short time.

Films I'm interested in:

Wed 2 Feb:
Able Edwards - 1830 - Odeon Panton St

Fri 4 Feb:
Lady Death - 1845 - Odeon Panton St

Sat 5 Feb:
The Big Empty - 1100 - Curzon Soho (Free showing)
Steamboy (Katsuhiro Otomo) - 1615 - Curson Soho
The Machinist - 1900 - Curzon Soho

Sun 6 Feb:
Saving Star Wars - 1600 - Curson Soho

I'll definately be trying to get tickets for the Saturday ones (The Big Empty is free, but you need to book).
11:44 am
[billyabbott]
The Curzon Soho are showing (along with some Noirish detective looking things) Annie Hall and Breakfast at Tiffany's this Sunday (16th)
The first is a film I really like and the latter is one I want to see, so I may wander along...anyone else?
£6.00 for the 2 movies, meet up outside the cinema at 11.45am.

http://www.curzoncinemas.com/article_829.shtml

Or for the noir movies: http://www.curzoncinemas.com/article_1054.shtml
(on second reading...I'm tempted by the noir ones now...I'll decide sometime)

Via rjw1, http://www.sci-fi-london.com/2005web/festival.htm - Sci-Fi London 2005. A festival that I've missed every year that I've known about it's existance. Mainly due to lameness.

Hopefully they'll announce the dates/venues for some of their headline films soon (Curzon Soho, Prince Charles and The Other Screen [or whatever it's called] were last years venues I think), but I'm looking forward to The Machinist and Steamboy.

Anyone see anything they're interested in?

House of Flying Daggers
Having checked up on the times again after evildave's recent brush with the lies of the cinema listings, it seems that House of Flying Daggers will be on after Christmas. I'm having a brief stop back in town between visiting the far flung branches of my family, and am thinking of wandering along to see the film on the evening of Monday 27th December.

I'm currently considering (for no better reason than that I saw Hero there) the Odeon "Covent Garden" on Shaftesbury avenue and the 20:35 showing.

Anyone interested? I'm guessing that booking of tickets will be needed, so let me know by tomorrow morning if anyone is.

Update: Noone seems to be around, so I shall spend my one evening in town before visiting the wilds of Somerset doing something else. If anyone is organising a trip in the new year, let us know.
