THE RED TURTLE Japan/France 2017 (PG)

THE RED TURTLE Japan/France 2017

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High,Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Half Term Matinee. ANIMATED FILM.

Dir:  Michael Dudok de Wit. Cast (voice): Emmanuel Garijo, Tom Hudson, Baptiste Goy, Alexi Devillers and Barbara Beretta

This beautiful animated film, jointly made by Japan’s Studio Ghibli and European backers, with a Dutch/British director, is like a zen variation on Robinson Crusoe.  A man is washed up on an archetypical desert island.  Repeated attempts to sail away bring him into contact with a mysterious giant turtle, out of which a surprising relationship mysteriously develops.  The story operates at the level of a universal myth, free of dialogue or specifics, subtly alluding to deeper matters.

Characters are often dwarfed in lush expanses of sea, sky or forest, and there’s a delight in small details;  a greek chorus of scuttling crabs, the lapping of waves on the shore.  A beautiful film for all ages  - “a desert island film to bask in” – Steve Rose, The Guardian.

DR STRANGELOVE 1964 CLASSIC (PG)

DR STRANGELOVE 1964 CLASSIC

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel School,Market Lane, Wells NR23 1RB


Dir: Stanley Kubrick.  Cast: Peter Sellers, George C Scott, Sterling Hayden, Slim Pickens and Keenan Wynn

Curiously topical in these uncertain times, Dr Strangelove or how I learned to stop worrying about the bomb was made at the height of the cold war when anxiety and fear about the end of life as we know it was prevalent, tackling this through the lens of satire and surreal comedy.  Briefly, the mad saga revolves around a psychotic out of control American Strategic Air Command Officer, General Jack D Ripper (Hayden) who lets loose his armed B52 bomber command squadron on the Soviet Union because of his paranoid belief that the Soviets are “tapping and contaminating all our precious bodily fluids” as part of their plan for world domination.  Ripper is unaware that his attack will trigger the Soviets’ ultimate retaliatory weapon, the Doomsday Machine, which will blow up the entire planet..  The three men who might avert this tragedy are all played by Peter Sellers  - British RAF officer Mandrake, the only man with direct access to the demented Ripper;  the ineffective President of the USA, MerkinMuffley;  and the former Nazi scientific genius Dr Strangelove…..

“The genius of Dr Strangelove is that it’s possible to laugh – and laugh hard – while still recognizing the intelligence and insight behind the humour” – James Berardinelli, Reelviews.
