Thought Mandy was underwhelming

Looked great and the first hour sets an intriguing story but then its just Cage fighting people.

Considering how much it was hyped as prime Cage madness, it really isnt

(My first crush tbh)

So much to look forward to in November, and it’s Cinecity in Brighton too. Shame neither Shirkers or Private Life were included in the film of the month poll, prefer both of them to all else I’ve seen on said list.

I don’t really get Cinecity. It’s all just previews of films on general release in the coming months at hiked up prices no?

Shirkers hasn’t come out in the UK yet as far as I can see.

I forgot about Private Life (and forgot to include an Other option on the poll) :frowning:

No worries. Shirkers came to Netflix on the 26th October, highly recommend it.

Just a smaller scale LFF really, so a mix of films on general release in the next few weeks (Favourite, Shoplifters, Sorry to Bother You, Suspiria, Wild Pear Tree etc) and those that aren’t out til 2019/not yet confirmed by distributor (Burning, Birds of Passage, Sunset, Happy As Lazzaro, Capernaum etc). Pretty sure tickets are the same price as usual.

For me it’s just a good opportunity to see things like The Wild Pear Tree in a cinema, as it’s unlikely to get too many screenings come the end of the month.

Both Dukes cinemas programming has been a little disappointing in recent months, and Depot in Lewes has had the sort of title I’d have hoped Dukes would have played previously (Western, Dogman etc).

Really want to see Assassination Nation.

Didn’t see too many films in October but Mandy was my favorite, pretty much felt like the perfect depiction of someone battling against otherworldly evil.

Netflix really publicising new additions as usual then!

Definitely agreed about the lacklustre Dukes programming recently :confused: I haven’t yet visited the Depot - worth a visit?

Q: Why did i wait so long to see Hitchcock’s Rebecca?
A: Because i’m an idiot.

Yeah, definitely. Three great screens, really decent food and (wanker) beers too. They’re taking part in Mubi Go too.
