Capital Celluloid 2022 — Day 132: Sat May 14

CAPITAL CELLULOID takes over the Album Club session at the Spiritland bar in Kings Cross this week. Each night from 6pm on Tuesday to Saturday we’ll be spinning a soundtrack LP at the famous music venue, and tonight’s is the superb selection found to accompany Quentin Tarantino’s brilliant Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019). Do come along to say hello (here are the details of how to get there) and enjoy the vibe at one of the best venues in town.


Criminal Lovers (Ozon, 1999): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 12pm

This 35mm presentation, also being screened on May 4th (details here), is part of the French Extremity season at BFI Southbank. The full film schedule can be found via this link

BFI introduction:
A retelling of the Hansel and Gretel tale through a tacky tabloid lens and a distinct anti-authority vibe, this early Ozon film is sensationalistic by design. Teenage Alice (Régnier) convinces her boyfriend to murder her lover, but after the deed is done they’re both trapped by a strange old man in his cabin in the woods.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
