The Elephant Man (PG)

UK/USA 1980 124m. Dir: David Lynch.

In Victorian London John Merrick (John Hurt) is a sufferer of several physical deformities which hide the gentle soul beneath. Displayed as a circus attraction, Merrick is rescued by the kindly Dr. Frederick Treaves (Anthony Hopkins) who introduces him to the great and good of Victorian society. A tenderly handled drama from Lynch filmed in gorgeous black and white by the legendary Freddie Francis and featuring an astounding supporting cast including Anne Bancroft, John Gielgud, Freddie Jones and 2013 festival guest Dexter Fletcher.

Cinebabies: Lifeboat (PG) 

1944  UK  97m. Dir: Alfred Hitchcock.

During WWII a sea freighter sailing between New York and London is torpedoed by a U-boat and sunk, leaving a disparate group of survivors stranded in a lifeboat. None has much in the way of seafaring experience to help in their situation. Tensions then arise when they discover and rescue a German sailor who claims to have been a lowly crew member on the U-boat. He could be the key to their survival but can he be trusted? Hitchcock’s ocean bound thriller is one of his most gripping, featuring strong performances throughout from its small cast.

2:45pm:

Mulholland Drive (15) 

USA 2001 147m. Dir: David Lynch.

Naomi Watts (Birdman) gives a career making performance as aspiring actress Betty, who after arriving in Hollywood, befriends an amnesiac woman (Laura Harring) and tries to help her recover her memory. Once established, the film proceeds to subvert any certainty about them, instead offering a swirling atmosphere of increasing surrealism. As twisting and turning as the Hollywood road it takes its name from, this is a story about Hollywood – what it is and how it operates, its powers of myth, illusion and delusion. A monumental classic by one of the masters of contemporary cinema. David Lynch’s quintessential neo-noir is back on the big screen in a new 4k digital transfer supervised by the director himself.

“Few will be able to resist its heady sense of intrigue and two riveting lead performances by Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring” - Hollywood Reporter

Satori Screen presents Fires On The Plain (Adv 18) - PREVIEW 

Japan 2014 110m. Dir: Shinya Tsukamoto.

Shinya Tsukamoto gained international attention early in 2017 for his performance in Martin Scorsese’s Silence but has actually been writing, directing and acting in his own films for nearly thirty years, most notably with his cult Tetsuo series. His most recent film is an adaptation of the classic novel by Shohei Ooka which follows a Japanese soldier (played by Tsukamoto himself) as he confronts illness, starvation and brutality in The Philippines at the close of World War 2. A film not for the faint at heart, as Tsukamoto plunges the viewer into the horrors of war with characteristic verve and little in the way of restraint. 

“Stands out for the sheer force of its terrors and the darkly hypnotic trance it provokes” - Screen Anarchy

This screening will be introduced by Satori Screen's Peter Munford.
