  • post Eraserhead: the true story behind David Lynch's surreal shocker - 22 March
  • Forty years on, the director?s fatherhood freakout has lost none of its horrific powerOn 19 March 1977, the world changed, after which there was a long uncomfortable silence. The occasion was the first public screening of Eraserhead, the feature debut of David Lynch, at the Filmex festival in Los Angeles. It was not a hot ticket. The film arrived with little advance publicity at the only festival to accept it. The screening took place at midnight, drawing a modest crowd who dutifully watched for the next two hours (the film was then longer than the 89 minutes it became). When it ended: nothing. But no one left either. Just silence. Then, finally, applause.Lynch was barely into his 30s, still a way off from the master surrealist with the silver quiff who created Twin Peaks. And it hadn?t yet become apparent that this was how everyone would react to Eraserhead. You wonder exactly how many people since have been left mute after their first encounter with Jack Nance and his socket-finger hair, cast as luckless new father Henry. Continue reading...
  • post Life review ? Jake Gyllenhaal hits the retro rockets for sub-Alien space horror - 21 March
  • Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds play members of a scientific team investigating material from Mars that turns out to contain a hostile life-formLike the anonymous phone call in a horror film that turns out to be coming from inside the house, Life is a sci-fi thriller about a contamination crisis: a crisis that goes on pretty much uninterruptedly for around an hour and three quarters. It?s a serviceable, watchable, determinedly unoriginal film starring Jake Gyllenhaal about a parasite-predator in a spaceship, a creature which can only survive by feeding off a pre-existing host. The expressions on the spacepersons? faces here may give a guide to the feelings of Ridley Scott and everyone involved with the 1979 classic Alien when they see it. Life is indebted to Alien, to say the least, although its final, perfunctory hint of a conspiracy doesn?t approach Alien?s powerful satirical pessimism.

  • post Kong: Skull Island ? why do Hollywood blockbusters have such Trump-like politics? - 22 March
  • From Godzilla to Assassin?s Creed, Hollywood is churning out fantasies of authoritarian rule, but it doesn?t have to be this wayWhen Guardian reviewer Peter Bradshaw wrote that only a theory of ?de-evolution? could account for the truly woeful Kong: Skull Island, he was right in more ways than one. The film is indeed a total mess, but its politics are peculiarly regressive, too. To say that it manages somehow to turn the giant monkey Kong into a Donald Trump-like figure sounds absurd, but it?s not far from the truth. The movie is a remake of sorts of the 1933 film, King Kong. The action takes place in 1973, at the close of the Vietnam War, and depicts a military and scientific expedition that crashes on Kong?s island and must journey to the coast to be rescued. Drama ensues when the leader of the military force (played by Samuel L Jackson), stinging over America?s withdrawal from Vietnam, decides that in Kong he has found an enemy that, unlike the Viet Cong, can be defeated.

  • post Beauty and the Beast waltzes its way to the top of the UK box office - 21 March
  • Disney?s decorative, live-action remake starring Emma Watson opens with a monster 19.7m, while smart comedy-horror Get Out gets up to No 3 Ever since the UK?s cinema programmers saw the completed version of Bill Condon?s Beauty and the Beast, commercial confidence in the film has been sky high. ?Even bigger than The Jungle Book? was the verdict of one chief booker, with reference to Disney?s last attempt to turn one of its classic animations into a live-action hit. The Jungle Book opened with a robust 9.9m in the UK last April, on its way to a final tally of 46.2m ? making it the fourth biggest hit of 2016. Continue reading...
  • post Beauty and the Beast: Malaysian film censors back down in 'gay moment' row - 21 March
  • Country?s censorship board approves 13-plus rating after previously demanding Disney cut gay scene from live-action remake before releaseBeauty and the Beast will be screened in Malaysia without cuts, although censors have given the film a 13-plus age rating due to the film containing a ?gay moment?.The Film Censorship Board of Malaysia had previously said the Disney movie would only be approved for release if four minutes of material were removed. The studio refused to make the cuts and appealed the board?s decision. Continue reading...
