The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie (1976) // John Cassavetes

Belmont Head of Cinema Operations: Colin

"John Cassavetes' grimy neo-noir feels it laid the blueprint for one of the best films of the last year, Uncut Gems. Beautiful colouring and dodgy dealings in a wonderful character study."


Watch on BFI Player
  1917 (2019) // Sam Mendes

Marketing Officer: Abbie

"Sam Mendes' takes a powerful and harrowing look at WWI with his Oscar®-winning drama, inspired by his grandfather's experiences as a solder. Filmed to look like one continuous shot, it's a breathtaking cinematic achievement - I'm kicking myself that I missed it on the big screen!"

Jojo Rabbit (2019) // Taika Waititi
 
Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel

“Precariously balancing levity with tragedy, it's incredible how Waititi satirizes the harrowing daily life of WWII Nazi Germany to give a very human story of the varied realities. Meet Jojo, fanatical WWII Hitler Youth Member who just wants to make his invisible best friend, Adolf Hitler, proud. 

Watch it on Now TV for the social relevance, arthouse feels and fantastic performances."

A Life in Movies // Michael Powell


Development Officer: Matt

"The first of Powell's two memoirs detailing his life and career, an absolute must-read for anyone interested in the glory days of 1940s British film. Powell began working at the tail end of the silent era, then as an apprentice with Hitchcock, meeting Emeric Pressburger by fate. Together they go on to make one of the greatest string of films, A Matter of Life and DeathBlack Narcissus, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp and The Red Shoes."
