Friday November 16

  • Amour

    Michael Haneke's 'Amour' is devastatingly original and unflinching in the way it examines the effect of love on death, and vice versa. It's a staggering, intensely moving look at old age and life's end.

  • Happy Happy

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Hit So Hard

    This doc tells Patty Schemel’s story (drummer of grunge band Hole), pulling together intimate footage she shot during Hole’s 1994-95 world tour.

Friday November 23

  • Cinema Komunisto

    A look at the film industry in the former Yugoslavia under the control of postwar leader Tito. The Marshal was a great lover of film, and this documentary interviews actors, directors, secret policemen, projectionists and more about the state of film under that strict regime.

  • Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!

    Just in case ‘Nativity!’ passed you by, it was a mild-mannered semi-improvised British family comedy about a school putting on a nativity play. This less-than-predictable sequel brings back stars Marc Wootton and Pam Ferris for more festive fun.

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

    Director Eugene Jarecki argues that in 40 years, the ‘War on Drugs’ has accounted for 45 million arrests, sent the prison population through the roof and destroyed communties both at home and abroad.
