ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS d. Julien Temple, 1986 + Q&A with the director & cinematographer Oliver Stapleton at BFI (15 SEP 20:25) / Part of NFTS AT 50.

  • “Julien Temple’s brave reboot of the British movie musical for the MTV generation comes on like a hyper West Side Story. Its tale of young lovers divided – set against a backdrop of generational conflict, gentrification and white supremacy in 1950s London – is a riot of day-glo production design and anarchic energy. Bowie’s ad man Vendice Partners gets a memorable number, dancing atop a spinning globe and an over-sized type-writer. But it’s his chart-topping title theme that steals the show.”






COPILOT d. Anne Zohra Berrach, 2021.

THE SERVANT d. Joseph Losey, 1963.

SWEET THING d. Alexandre Rockwell, 2020.
