The Zone of Interest (12A)

The Zone of Interest

The commandant of Auschwitz and his wife strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp.


The film observes Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel) and his wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller) as they live their happy family life right next door to the concentration camp. Shot like a casual European dramedy about a family at their summer home, the reality that surrounds them is revealed only by the barbed wire fences, small details in conversation, skies filled with smoke, bursts of sound design, and the piercing score. Friedel as Höss is frightening in his mundanity and Hüller as Hedwig gives the film its twisted humanity. The moments where Hedwig is cruel to her house staff almost feel like a relief - evil we can see even if it’s so much milder than what’s over the walls. In the novel from where this screenplay has been adapted, the lead was named Paul Doll. Glazer, best known for ‘Sexy Beast’ and ‘Under the Skin’, specifically chose to name his main character Rudolf Höss (almost identical to Rudolf Hess) to bring the weight of a well-recorded historical character living in a specific place and time.

The Conversation (12A)

The Conversation

A paranoid, secretive surveillance expert has a crisis of conscience when he suspects that the couple he is spying on will be murdered. This tense, paranoid thriller presents Francis Ford Coppola at his finest.


Surveillance expert Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is hired by a mysterious client's brusque aide (Harrison Ford) to tail a young couple, Mark (Frederic Forrest) and Ann (Cindy Williams). Tracking the pair through San Francisco's Union Square, Caul and his associate Stan (John Cazale) manage to record a cryptic conversation between them. Tormented by memories of a previous case that ended badly, Caul becomes obsessed with the resulting tape, trying to determine if the couple are in danger. Hackman is superb in this brilliant conspiracy thriller which has been restored and reissued. Winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes 1974, Coppola's film confirms its status as a classic, a movie of real authority.

The Machine that Kills Bad People (PG)

The Machine that Kills Bad People

La Macchina Ammazzacattivi


The third (and least known) film in our Italian Neo-Realism season follows a man who is given a special power which he quickly begins to use, and abuse. Rossellini’s highly stylised satire is a morality tale that marks a transition in the filmmaker’s career.


A photographer in a small fishing village is visited by a man who claims to be Saint Andrea. The Saint gives him a special camera device to solve the village's ills - by taking a photograph of an existing picture, the photo subject dies. Initially sure of his good intentions, he aims the weapon at human injustice, but discovers in the process that good and evil are intertwined. Inspired by the commedia dell’arte, complete with political allusions and a strong moral message, the film was initially abandoned by Rossellini in 1948, only to be completed four years later.

Thelma (PG)

Thelma

When 93-year-old Thelma Post gets duped by a phone scammer pretending to be her grandson, she sets out on a treacherous quest across the city to reclaim what was taken from her.


Inspired by a real-life experience of director Josh Margolin's own grandmother, this film puts a clever spin on movies like ‘Mission: Impossible’, shining the spotlight on an elderly grandmother as an unlikely action hero. With infectious humour, Margolin employs the familiar tropes of the action genre in hilarious, age-appropriate ways to tackle aging with agency. In the first leading film role of her 70-year career, June Squibb (‘About Schmidt’, ‘Nebraska’) portrays the strong-willed Thelma with grit and determination, demonstrating that she is more than capable of taking care of business - despite what her daughter Gail (Parker Posey), son-in-law Alan (Clark Gregg), or grandson Danny (Fred Hechinger) might believe. There is no doubting Squibb’s charisma, expertly supported by recently deceased Richard Roundtree (‘Shaft’).

Freud's Last Session (15)

Freud's Last Session

Sigmund Freud (Anthony Hopkins) and converted atheist C.S. Lewis (Matthew Goode) meet as their worlds are going through drastic change.


September 1939, Hitler has just invaded Poland and set Europe at war. Freud arrived in London a year earlier, after the Nazis marched into Vienna, whilst Lewis is an Oxford don who has not yet written his beloved Narnia books, but has recently embraced Christianity after years as a nonbeliever. These two titans of 20th-century thought meet at the psychoanalyst’s London home to discuss God, father figures and, of course, sex. This lavish film is based on a modest off-Broadway play that captivated theatre audiences a decade ago. Playwright Mark St. Germain worked with director Matthew Brown to reshape his two-character drama into this intriguing film, which also benefits from wonderful cinematography and production design.
