MONDAY 06 SEPTEMBER 2021 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today including one-off events, limited runs, film clubs, repertory seasons, film festivals, outdoor events, & our selection of new releases.
MAELSTRÖM 35mm d. Denis Villeneuve, 2000 at BFI (06 SEP 18:15) / Part of DENIS VILLENEUVE: THE PATH TO DUNE.
- “Villeneuve’s second feature, a dark comedy about a young woman unravelling after a hit-and-run accident, is bursting with ideas – most notably exploring his reccurring concerns with cyclical violence and women in crisis. It’s also Villeneuve at his most playful: the whole piece is narrated by a talking fish as it’s being butchered at a fishmonger’s table. The director himself has stated he considers MAELSTRÖM a ‘brother’ to his later surreal reflection on anxiety, ENEMY.”
