The Lightship (Skolimowski, 1985): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 12.15pm

This 35mm presentation also screens on April 14th. Full details of the Jerzy Skolimowski season at BFI Southbank can be found here.

Chicago Reader review:
A moody, carefully crafted film by Jerzy Skolimowski (Moonlighting) set aboard an isolated U.S. Coast Guard ship, where captain Klaus Maria Brandauer, a German-American with a military black mark against his name, is confronted by a band of hijackers led by a menacing Cajun (Robert Duvall). Opaque and literary in Skolimowski’s late, gray exilic mode, but still well worth seeing.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
