A PERFECT WORLD - 35mm • presented by Misc. Films x Badlands Collective

After a botched prison escape, convict Butch Haynes (Kevin Costner) finds himself on the run with a seven-year-old hostage (T.J. Lowther), pursued by Clint Eastwood’s grizzled Texas Ranger and a young criminologist played by Laura Dern. This brooding thriller set on the eve of the Kennedy assassination is an intelligent, quietly devastating examination of damaged masculinity and the cyclical nature of violence.  


The film turns on a fascinating, ambiguous performance by Costner – playing against his heroic star image to striking effect – as the bruised and magnetic Butch. On release, A Perfect World was something of a box office disappointment, but the passing years have burnished its reputation and this sole collaboration between Costner and Eastwood is now widely regarded as among both star and director’s finest work.


A Perfect World screens as part of Kevin Costner: King of America, a mini-season programmed by Misc. Films and The Badlands Collective. A 30th anniversary screening of Bull Durham screens at the Regent Street Cinema on the 21st August.


“Eastwood’s greatest hidden gem” – The Playlist


“Costner's performance is absolutely riveting, a marvel of guarded, watchful character revealed through sly understatement and precise details” – New York Times


FALLING DOWN - a Celluloid Sorceress 35mm presentation • 25th Anniversary

The Celluloid Sorceress’ retrospective of Joel Schumacher comes to The Prince Charles Cinema with the dark fable commonly hailed as the director’s greatest masterpiece.


Michael Douglas is D-FENS, a white collar, white male suburban defense worker trapped in gridlock on his way to work on the Los Angeles freeway.  Brought to breaking point by the accumulation of daily frustrations and antagonisms he snaps, abandoning his car and embarking on a mosaic journey “home”.  Encountering the full diversity of the ever expanding City of Angels, D-FENS also acquires an arsenal of weaponry as retiring police detective Robert Duvall follows the trail he leaves behind.


The Los Angeles riots of 1992 lasted nearly a week.  Warner Bros., like everyone else, pulled their productions filming in the city back within the confines of the studio lot.  FALLING DOWN finished its shoot at Burbank and was released in 1993 to very mixed reviews, controversy and protests.  To some it was a reactionary response to events from a liberal Hollywood set.  Others understood it as a gripping dark comedy meditating on socio-economic tensions and the balance of American privilege.


For those on the West Coast the film was a little too close to home and its prescience resonates in today’s political climate.  Schumacher, the writer of Sparkle, Car Wash, The Wiz and D.C. Cab challenges a mainstream audience to examine its unconscious biases through a bravura performance by Michael Douglas. With superb cinematography and an exciting sound design, FALLING DOWN is funny, thrilling, provocative and stands as one of the finest “Lost in L.A.” movies of all time.


Introduced by Rebecca Nicole Williams at 8:55pm with a selection of vintage 35mm trailers before the feature.
