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

Belmont 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."

Watch Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am on Filmhouse at Home

Rushmore (1998) // Wes Anderson

Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel

“Pranks, heartbreak and adolescent misbehaviours. Rushmore is the eccentric coming-of-age tale of 15-year-old Max Fischer, and shows Wes Anderson’s visual technique at it's absolute infancy!

...and the soundtrack is expectedly amazing!"

Watch Rushmore on Disney+
