Starting Monday, September 16, at the University of Maryland
A new series of cult-favorite Brit films:
Shown in Rm. 1100 Tawes, starting at 7 pm, Monday, Sept. 16.
The first of four films this fall will be:
Lawless Heart. 2001.
Dir. & Screenplay by Tom Hunsinger & Neil Hunter.
After a death in the family, friends and relations gather on the Isle of Man for a funeral. Stock-taking, pain, and sometimes delight ensue for the three plotlines. Bill Nighy is mumbly and magnificent and, of course, bewildered. And Tom Hollander is as good as he was in In the Loop (2009) or on stage at the NT inLandscape with Weapon (2007). It’s the writing, stupid.
Free Pepsi and pizza.
The next three films will be KES (1969); LOCAL HERO (1983); and KIPPERBANG (1981).
These will be shown on the big screen in the Hoff.

Please join us for the first meeting for the Graduate Field Committee in Film Studies Colloquium this Friday, September 20th, from 2-4pm in Nonprint Media Services, Room H, Hornbake Library.
Our discussion for this first session of the Colloquium will center on two readings that exemplify different traditions in the close analysis of film scenes, Raymond Bellour’s “The Obvious and the Code,” which treats a scene from THE BIG SLEEP (Howard Hawks, 1946); and David Bordwell’s work on the beginning and ending of MILDRED PIERCE (Michael Curtiz, 1942).
For those interested in attending who are not enrolled in the course, the materials for our first discussion are available here:
