FILM: The Warriors

Cinema City

2nd March 11pm

United States 1979, 94 mins
Director: Walter Hill
Starring: James Remar

This violent, dark Walter Hill picture has become something of a cult favourite owing to its timely subject matter – inner city gangs – and its notorious reputation.The action begins when representatives of all the New York City street gangs attempt to unite their numbers into one powerful group, and the resultant shooting is wrongly pinned on a gang known as The Warriors.

The Warriors, stranded outside of their ‘turf’ and facing the violent revenge of the rival gangs, must struggle to survive their flight through enemy territory to return ‘home’.

Amongst this lightning-paced film’s numerous virtues is the stunning photography by Andrew Laszlo.

FILM: Land And Freedom

Cinema City

25th March 5pm

Italy 1995, 109 mins
Director: Ken Loach
Starring: Ian Hart, Rosana Pastor

Ken Loach’s ambitious film follows a Liverpudlian to the Republican trenches of the Spanish Civil War and to the political treachery of the conflict.

Jim Allen’s script bears more than passing resemblance to George Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia. However, Allen’s hero is one who acts on instinct and gut feelings rather than political intelligence.

In 1936, after attending a workers’ meeting, the young communist Dave Carr decides to go to Spain to fight fascism. On a train bound for Barcelona he is recruited into the Republican militia. By May 1937 the Republicans in Barcelona, whilst ostensibly fighting Franco, find themselves a divided force – the militia and the anarchists on one side and the communists on the other. Featuring superb performances and memorable cinematography, the film has the viewer thoroughly involved in the characters’ stories.
