There is no one in cinema quite like Pedro Almodóvar. One of the world’s most celebrated filmmakers, his body of work bridges popular and arthouse cinema. He has frequently challenged taboos and mores – not without controversy at times – whilst entertaining us with his tales of jealousy, guilt, obsession and desire. His dramas run the gamut from sexy to demented, exploring our baser instincts as well as our virtues. And is there any other contemporary filmmaker who understands so completely the seductiveness of colour in cinema? Almodóvar emerged out of La Movida Madrileña, the Madrid art scene that rapidly expanded following the death of Spanish dictator General Francisco Franco in 1975. Initially evincing a punk aesthetic in his work, Almodóvar’s style developed in sophistication and verve, just as his name became a byword for excellence in European cinema. Today, he is almost as much of a household name as Hitchcock and like that master of suspense, Almodóvar has long delighted in the thrill of cinema. This collection spans the last three decades and offers the perfect introduction to this filmmaker’s sensual, occasionally provocative world
Nine modern masterpieces, sumptuously shot in black and white.
This year’s edition of 'Canada Now' features another bold and diverse selection of the finest fiction and documentary features coming out of the Great White North, hosted over the summer months on Curzon Home Cinema with a selection of live filmmaker Q&As. Opening with 'Guest of Honour' –– the latest offering from veteran filmmaker Atom Egoyan, starring David Thewlis as a troubled restaurant inspector –– the festival remains committed to showcasing bold new works from emerging directors such as Kazik Radwanski, who’s audacious feature 'Anne At 13,000 FT' features an electric lead performance from Deragh Campbell, and the stunning social media deception drama 'White Lie' from directorial duo Yonah Lewis and Calvin Thomas. Yung Chang’s 'This Is Not A Movie' is a pertinent portrait of the journalist Robert Fisk, while Louise Archambault’s 'And The Birds Rained Down' is a beautiful, meditative drama from the bucolic forests of Quebec. We round this year’s programme out with Zacharias Kunuk latest feature 'One Day In The Life Of Nah Piugattuk' –– a quietly riveting tale set in 1961 on the far northern Baffin Island, drawn from the historical reality of the attempted forced relocation and cultural assimilation of Canada’s Inuit Indigenous peoples.
Once hailed by Truffaut to be “the most important film director alive”, we look back at the varied career of cinema legend Werner Herzog.
