Sunday 18 January 12.30pm
The Curzon are starting a new strand of regularly showing 35mm films, ideal for those who like to go old school.
First up on Sunday 18 January will be Robert Altman's 1970s alt-noir The Long Goodbye, starring Eliott Gould. The screening will be introduced so as to provide some context to the film's production and influence.
From the Curzon:
This new strand offers audiences the chance to watch classic movies in a 35mm format. They will each be introduced, placing the film in context of the time it was made and how it has influenced more recent cinema.
A clear influence over Paul Thomas Anderson’s forthcoming Inherent Vice, Robert Altman's third 1970s masterpiece – after M*A*S*H (1970) and McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971) – is a revisionist take on Raymond Chandler's anti-hero P.I. Philip Marlowe. A product of the West Coast counterculture and played with studied nonchalance by Elliott Gould, Marlowe is employed by a friend accused of murder but soon finds himself caught up in a web of intrigue.
