Gene Hack­man and Roy Scheider are nar­cot­ics cops fight­ing an inter­na­tion­al drugs ring in this 1971 multi Oscar win­ner.

The 1970s was a golden era for Hol­ly­wood film mak­ing and Wil­li­am Friedkin’s tough New York thrill­er set the bar high at the begin­ning of the dec­ade for dir­ect­ors such as Cop­pola, Scorsese and Spiel­berg to leave their imprint on the screen.

With an inter­na­tion­al cast, a grip­ping plot, one of THE great movie car chases and superb per­form­ances, The French Con­nec­tion is an all time clas­sic.

Not to be missed if never seen before and always worth revis­it­ing for anoth­er view­ing!

Themroc feat. live soundtrack by Alex Paterson — 7th May

image004Feast Film Nights are proud to present this rarely shown anarch­ic com­edy from 1973. Them­roc returns home from work one day and decided to throw out all trap­pings of mod­ern life. His flat is turned into a cave and he reverts to a sort of Neo­lith­ic life­style, only speak­ing in grunts…

For this per­form­ance only Alex Pater­son (The Orb) has cre­ated a new soundtrack for the film, which he will play live. A one off exper­i­ence that is not to be missed..

You don’t love me!’
‘Yes, I do!’
‘I do too, but I’m gonna mace you in the face!’

Estranged broth­ers Fran­cis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartz­man) reunite for a train trip across India. The sib­lings have not spoken in over a year, ever since their fath­er died. Fran­cis is recov­er­ing from a motor­cycle acci­dent, Peter can­not cope with his wife’s preg­nancy, and Jack can­not get over his ex-lover. The broth­ers fall into old pat­terns of beha­vi­or as Fran­cis reveals the real reas­on for the reunion: to visit their moth­er in a Him­alay­an con­vent.

Wes Anderson’s quirky com­edy-drama pays homage not only to the films of Jean Ren­oir, Louis Malle and Sat­jay­it Ray, but also to the stun­ning land­scape of Rajasthan. The film won the Little Golden Lion at the 2007 Venice Film Fest­iv­al.
