L.A. Confidential (1997) // Curtis Hanson

Head of Cinema Operations: Colin

"A brilliant portrait of the seediness of golden age Hollywood firstly but underneath it's a study of problem policing in the US still relevant to the modern age. Pierce and Crowe are perfect as Ed Exley and Bud White but everyone is good, especially James Cromwell, the characters flitting in and out of those twisting shots of corridors, the plot bristling and that ending hinting at a lack of problems solved and morals eschewed. Still totally gripping."

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (2019) // Timothy Greenfield-Sanders

Programme Manager: Evi

"I wholeheartedly recommend Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am. It is such an inspiring documentary that is built around interviews with the author herself, just before her passing. Her generosity of spirit and openness are inviting us close to her enlightened presence."

An extraordinary adventure which will appeal to children of all ages!

Pew // Catherine Lacey

Programme Officer: Raymah

"Who is Pew? Pew is a person, named as such, as they were found in the pew of a church. The town don’t know what to make of them - are they a man? Woman? Old? Young? Where did they come from? Eerie and unsettling with echoes of Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery, Pew makes for a quick read that will have you mulling over it long after."

"I consumed it. It is the electric charge we need" - Daisy Johnson, author of Everything Under
