Performance 7pm & Blow-Up 9pm double bill: Riverside Studios

Another excellent double bill from those clever people at the Riverside Studios. Both dazzling pieces of movie-making while admittedly infuriating for some. After three or four viewings I am still no closer to working out who did what to whom in the south London park featured in Blow-Up but this is a film that grows in stature the more I see it. American film critic Roger Ebert had a go at a solution recently and you can read his thoughts here. This is the trailer.

Perfomance is another film which is not easy to pin down but I can strongly recommend Colin McCabe's volume in the BFI Film Classics series. Here is the trailer.
