  • post Black 47 review ? brutal revenge amid the horror of the Irish famine - 26 September
  • An Irishman deserts from the British army to wreak vengeance on a hated absentee landlord in a shocking but insightful dramaIrish film-maker Lance Daly has taken on the great famine of the 19th century, and its worst year, the ?Black ?47?, drawing from it an intestine-snappingly brutal movie that you could call revenge horror, or revenge western. Revenge something, anyway. And this is probably the generic result of seeing the famine not as a sorrowful tragedy, but as a matter of criminal constitutional negligence, with colonial rulers creating a serf class of disenfranchised tenant farmers, whose product was exported and who were made dependent for subsistence on a single, blight-vulnerable strain of potato.

  • post Judi Dench defends Kevin Spacey, criticising his 'extrusion from history' - 26 September
  • Dench takes issue with decision to cut actor out of Getty kidnap film All the Money in the World over sexual assault allegations, and praised his friendship in her time of griefJudi Dench has defended disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, saying she ?can?t approve? of the way he was removed from the recent Ridley Scott film All the Money in the World, about the J Paul Getty III kidnap, and replaced with Christopher Plummer.Speaking to journalists at the San Sebastian film festival, where she received a lifetime achievement award, Dench said Spacey was ?a good friend? and had been an ?inestimable comfort? and ?kept me going? while they worked together on The Shipping News after the death of her husband Michael Williams in 2001.

  • post Will Poulter: ?I'm a white, straight, middle-class male. I'm aware I take things for granted? - 25 September
  • The actor?s latest role is in The Little Stranger, a film that twitches with tension about class ? which resonates with his own upbringingNo one needs to teach Will Poulter anything about checking his privilege. The career choices of this 25-year-old show an actor drawn to films with a social conscience. In scarcely more than a decade, he has left behind CGI blockbusters (one Narnia and two Maze Runners) and broad comedy (We?re the Millers, in which he snogged Jennifer Aniston and Emma Roberts, and briefly sported a swollen prosthetic testicle). Instead, he has moved on to more serious, searching projects: the below-the-breadline chamber-piece Glassland, Kathryn Bigelow?s race riots drama Detroit and now The Little Stranger, a ghost story that twitches with class tension.

  • post 'There are no different truths': the last years of Soviet cinema - 25 September
  • A new season at the Barbican tells the story of the USSR?s final generation through the lens of its pioneering film-makers?Young people are our big hope, but they spell trouble for us too.? In 1965, an administrator at the Leningrad film studio, Lenfilm, summed up an enduring dilemma for Soviet official culture. How could the Young Communist League (on paper a ?public organisation?, in practice entirely subordinate to the party leadership) mobilise the younger generation without promoting political enthusiasms of the wrong kind? Soviet cinema ? a young art form with particular appeal to the country?s youth ? was, throughout its existence, a showcase for conflicted views of young people. Its own fate, too, altered as attitudes to them changed.In the first years after the October revolution, youth activism was strongly encouraged in life and on film. Sergei Eisenstein was just 27 when Battleship Potemkin, with its martyred young leader of a naval mutiny, made him world famous. But views of political participation by children and young people changed abruptly under Stalin. Eisenstein?s Bezhin Meadow, in which a tow-haired boy leads the assault on traditional village life, ran into trouble in August 1936. This came a month after a crackdown on child psychology, which was considered ?perverted?, and at the point when patriotic values were returning to the school syllabus. Continue reading...
