Directed By: Jose Luis Guerin
(Spain, 2015, 92 mins, DCP)

Catalonia’s Jose Luis Guerin is arguably the least well known of contemporary greats; his penchant for teasing poetry out of non-fiction approach has been emulated by many, but rarely matched. Here a professor of philology flirts with his female students and engages in amorous discourse with his wife. "Consistently amusing, frequently stimulating, and occasionally erotic work."

Directed By: Michael Cimino
(USA, 1980, 216 mins, DCP)

With the recent passing of director Michael Cimino and DP Vilmos Zsigmond it is high time to reevaluate this notorious box office flop, a western - or anti-western - that was too radical for US critics in 1980, both in its politics and its aesthetic daring. Restored to its full glory, this elegy for lost ideals could be the greatest movie you’ve never seen.
