Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 45: Sun Feb 14

The Mother and the Whore (Eustache, 1975): Barbican Cinema, 2pm

This 35mm screening is part of the mini My Twisted Valentine season at the Barbican. You can find details of all the screenings here.

Chicago Reader review:
A major work, not because of its exhausting length (217 minutes) or the audacity, brilliance, and total originality of its language, but because of writer-editor-director Jean Eustache's breathtaking honesty and accuracy in portraying the sexual and intellectual mores of its era. This 1973 film "explains" Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris, vividly and compellingly dramatizing the confusions, uncertainties, and complexities of thoroughly modern human relationships.
Don Druker

Here (and above) is an extract.
