Mercury in transit

There are a few films which may be of interest to SF fans in the new season of cinematheque (screenings at the Mercury Cinema):

  • The Time Guardian, Thurs 27th April, 7pm — a dreadful Australian SF movie (1987) which features Carrie Fisher.
  • McCabe and Mrs Miller (2013) Thurs 4th may — Robert Altman with Leonard Cohen songs, an interesting haunting western.
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Mon 22 May — the only way we could get Adam to watch Pride & Prejudice!
  • Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) Thursday 25 May  — Denzel Washington brings to life Walter Mosley’s PI, Easy Rawlins, as part of a Literary Crime subseason featuring Ripley’s Game (May 29th) and In Cold Blood (June 1st)
  • Wings Wings of Desire (1987)  Mon, June 19th — the wonderful Bruno Gantz as an Angel in modern Berlin, much better than the American remake. Part of a Wim Wenders mini-season
