Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway

£3.5 – £5

We are celebrating the start of September as it brings with it the annual festival of film clubs and societies Scalarama. We've picked a bizarre, cult classic from Japan to kick off the month. Seijun Suzuki's delirious 1967 hit-man film has drawn comparisons with contemporaries Le Samourai and Point Blank and influenced directors such as John Woo, Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino among others.

£3.5 – £5

Thai director Anocha Suwichakornpong's ethereal first film has been widely praised as one of the most startling and original feature debuts of recent years. This seemingly ordinary, astutely structured family drama is a film with cosmic aspirations. The story of a paralyzed son, his elusive father, and the male nurse hired to take care of the wheelchair-bound patient parallels the emotional dynamic of a single home with the tumult of an entire country. Like its dichotomic title, the film gradually…

  Peppered with unforgettable characters who wouldn’t feel out of place in a novel, Wadi, 10 Years Later—from Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai—is a deeply affecting piece of filmmaking offering an alternate perspective on Arab-Israeli relations. Focusing on the intimate lives of three couples over a decade, Gitai elegantly constructs an episodic tale of coexistence between Eastern European migrant camp survivors and Arabs expelled from their homes – all living together on the margins of Israeli society in a an isolated former…

His most controversial, voyeuristic work, in Extreme Private Eros: Love Song 1974, Kazuo Hara turns the camera on his ex-wife, radical activist Takeda Miyuki, following her as she navigates new relationships (with a woman, and with a American GI in Okinawa), raises their son, and experiences life as an outspoken feminist in conservative 1970s Japan. While Extreme Private Eros is ostensibly a record of Miyuki’s journey, she proves to be the perfect cinematic device for Hara to reveal the most intimate details of his…

"The last of Rohmer’s “Tales of the Four Seasons” (1990-98), the quartet which would be his final series, Autumn Tale is a magisterial late work – gentle, autumnal and mellow – that remains among the director’s very finest. In contrast to the dominant emphasis on youth in so much of his previous work, Rohmer now focuses instead on two middle-aged friends, played by his two favorite actresses, Marie Rivière and Béatrice Romaine, as the heroines of an intriguing plot spun from the…

Throughout the four decades of his career, Kazuo Hara has explored the margins of Japanese society, certain that central truths are to be found in fringe phenomena. In the creation of what he terms “action documentary,” he aims to imitate the shocking effect of the action film, following gestures and staying in the moment.

Every vertiginous shot is an idea, and Yoshida musters the dislocation living in an arthouse science fiction film, when in fact it’s just life at the end of the Sixties.” – Michael Atkinson

The story of a man (Charles Grodin) who falls in love with a woman (Cybill Shepherd) he meets while honeymooning in Florida with his new bride (Elaine May’s daughter, Jeannie Berlin), the set-up is pure screwball, but May executes it as a brilliantly excoriating black comedy.

Nagisa Oshima weaves a tale of ideological book thievery, situationist performance, fantasy Noh theatre productions, sexual revolution, and personal liberation in this Art Theatre Guild classic. Diary of a Shinjuku Thief was heavily influenced by the post-Shingeki theatre movement, whose main practitioners were Juro Kara and Shūji Terayama.

Filmed in a dispassionate cinema-vérité style, Bad Boys chronicles the militaristic daily routines of reform school life with little sense of release or salvation (both for inmates and audience). Relief from the grind is found through occasional triumphs of collective action, which point to Hani’s Marxist credentials, and in avant-garde musical pioneer…

“Life begins with every screening of Putney Swope. And remember, you can’t eat an air conditioner.” -Paul Thomas Anderson Described by Martin Scorsese as “an essential part of that moment when a truly independent American cinema was born,” the films of Robert Downey Sr. (a prince) are transgressive, surreal and hilarious. Putney Swope is his most accomplished and successful feature, and it stands as a key 1960s satire, driven by the same anarchic spirit that fueled films like Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove (1964), Jean-Luc Godard’s Weekend (1967)…

Shooting with audacious confidence, Suzuki ensnares us in an inane satire – precisely the kind of madness this bizarre masterpiece seeks to destroy. High-schooler Kiroku is in love with the rigidly-Catholic daughter of his boarding family, but society and religion do not allow him to exercise his more-base desires. Overflowing with teenage angst, he finds relief in violent outbursts: discovering that with each one comes mixed results.

In his usual fashion, Nagisa Oshima faces a derisive issue head on, making a farce out of a (still) ongoing human rights issue—capital punishment. R is a Korean who has, ostensibly, committed a crime worthy of death. In a circling overhead shot, Oshima’s film captures the ‘house’ of death where inmates will drink their last tea and breathe their last breath. But after hanging for over 20 minutes, R’s body won’t accept death. Pitting bureaucracy, ethics and spirituality against one…

After a year and a half in lockdown, we're back with a suitably horny film we've always wanted to show you. Join us on Tuesday the 7th September at 18:30 to watch Jane Campion's criminally under-screened erotic thriller In the Cut (2003). We love In The Cut for its soft vision of worlds that belong to women, the inscrutable strength and intellect of its main character... and that scene where Mark Ruffalo goes down on Meg Ryan. When a body…
