Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on November 18, 2023, 04:53:28 PMAh man, a few days ago I'd have absolutely been up for that, but then I was asked to review something at the Pleasance and got given free tickets so I can't make it now.Arena - A Very British Affair - 50 minute documentary which rushes through Powell and Pressburger's career, missing out a whole bunch of films, but which at least includes footage of the duo together which is extremely charming, and while there's not enough of that it's also quite fascinating seeing Powell hang out with Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola.
Quote from: studpuppet on November 18, 2023, 04:01:24 PMWell, it seems that thanks to a combination of unforeseen family commitments and general apathy, I have four (count 'em, FOUR) tickets to go and see A Matter Of Life & Death tomorrow (Sun 19th, 6.30pm) at BFI Southbank.First DM gets them (and the PDF tickets can be split up so if you want less than four); I'd rather they got used, so renumeration isn't essential, but if you fancy contributing to the Criterion DVD I now have to buy instead, then I'd be grateful...
Quote from: El Unicornio, mang on November 18, 2023, 06:21:06 PMSpeaking of, Powell turns up in this fascinating fly-on-the-wall docu about Scorsese at about the 11-minute mark. Was probably hanging out with Marty a lot since he was married to Thelma Schoonmaker and apparently gave quite a lot of good advice on Marty's films (for instance telling him how she should end After Hours)

Quote from: holyzombiejesus on November 21, 2023, 07:14:32 AMAnyone know if any of the films are going to be reissued on blu-ray? I've got some old dvd box set but it's not the best quality.
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on December 03, 2023, 08:22:30 PMPassionate might be pushing how I felt about it. I think it's an interesting case study in proto slashers, sleaze and direction. More about what it inspired rather than a riveting film (whereas Black Narccisius is both).
