Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 81: Mon Mar 21

Son of Saul (Nemes, 2015): Picturehouse Central 2pm, 4.30pm, 7pm & 9.30pm

This is a special 35mm preview screeening of one of this year's most anticipated films.

Chicago Reader review:
The debut feature of Hungarian writer-director László Nemes is easily the most exciting new film I've seen over the past year, and a casual look at the prizes and accolades it's received over the past eight months, starting with the Grand Prix and the FIPRESCI prize at Cannes, shows that I'm far from alone in feeling this way. Even my colleagues who dislike or dismiss the film concede that it's a stunning technical achievement. But the moment one starts to describe what the film does, or even what it's about, a certain amount of dissension sets in.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
