Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 91: Tue Apr 1

Bad Timing (Roeg, 1980): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.10pm


This film, part of the Jeremy Thomas season, also screens on April 5th and 7th. Details here.


Time Out review:
One of Roeg's most complex and elusive movies, building a thousand-piece jigsaw from its apparently simple story of a consuming passion between two Americans in Vienna. Seen in flashback through the prism of the girl's attempted suicide, their affair expands into a labyrinthine enquiry on memory and guilt as Theresa Russell's cold psychoanalyst lover (Garfunkel) himself falls victim to the cooler and crueller investigations of the detective assigned to her case (Keitel in visionary form as the policeman turned father-confessor).
Donald Macpherson

Here (and above) is the trailer.
