TUESDAY 04 APRIL 2023 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today across DIY, indie & alternative cinema including one-off screen events, film seasons, film festivals & our selection of new releases.
DRUGSTORE COWBOY d. Gus Van Sant, 1989 presented by Tufnell Park Film Club at The Lord Palmerston (04 APR 20:00).
“Bob Hughes (Matt Dillon) is the leader of a ‘family’ of drug addicts consisting of him, his wife, Dianne (Kelly Lynch), his best friend, Rick (James LeGros), and Rick’s girlfriend Nadine (Heather Graham). Together they travel across the U.S. Pacific Northwest of the early 70s, supporting their drug habits by robbing pharmacies and hospitals and pushing their luck until it well and truly runs out. Based on the autobiographical novel by James Fogle, and featuring a unforgettable cameo by William Burroughs (as a junky priest; natch), DRUGSTORE COWBOY was Gus Van Sant’s second feature and is brilliant example of 80s American indie filmmaking – without forgetting to include some of that 70s New Hollywood grit.” (Tufnell Park Film Club)
