Lo & behold: Reveries of the connected world (E) (98 mins) – Wednesday 18th January, 8.15pm
Werner Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. A provocative look at the Internet.
Love & Friendship (U) (90 mins) – Saturday 21st January, 8pm
Witty adaptation of Jane Austen’s novella, Lady Susan, a high class widow whose waning finances threaten her status and lifestyle. With her confidante. Mrs Alicia Johnson, the sharp-tongued Lady Susan sets her sights on the charming Reginald de Courcy in the hope of a marriage and financial security.
Rigoletto (E) (165 mins) – Sunday 22nd January, 7pm. Supper from 6pm.
The tyrannical nature of the Duke, and the appalling social injustice that springs from a corrupt leader: his court is a place of physical and sexual abuse. This violence throws the dual nature of Rigoletto into relief, making his toadyism seem the worse and his vengefulness the more sympathetic.
M (PG)(110 mins) – Monday 23rd January, 8pm
Fritz Lang’s first sound movie, the serial-killer film M, has been voted the best German film of all time. The young Peter Lorre is terrifyingly ordinary as the child murderer whom police and criminals hunt down in what is still one of the best forensic police procedurals ever made.
