Hercules

Hercules
  • 1997
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • U
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Tate Donovan, Susan Egan, James Woods, Danny DeVito

British cartoonist Gerald Scarfe's designs marry his customary grotesquery with Uncle Walt's softer characterisations. Hades (a magnificently splenetic James Woods) wants to exact revenge on Zeus by destroying his son Hercules, but luckily our hero has Pegasus as his steed and Phil the grumpy satyr (Danny DeVito) as his coach. Classical purists might grumble, but this is one of the studio's most dynamic and entertaining features.

  • Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, Cardi B

Destiny (Wu) and Ramona (Lopez) are strippers who, with their friends, devise a way of getting more cash out of their clients. Wu gives a sophisticated performance and her dynamic with Lopez pops with convincing intensity, making for a raucous crime story that’s by turns gorgeous, funny and surprisingly moving.

  • 2019
  • US

  • Directed by: Andy Muschietti
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader

Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

The Third Man

The Third Man
  • 1949
  • US / UK
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Carol Reed
  • Cast: Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles.

Holly Martins has been invited to unstable, post-World War II Vienna by his old chum Lime, who is now in the grand-scale drug dealing business, only to discover that he is dead. Except, he isn't of course, and a multilayered cat and mouse scenario is triggered. So, what's so good about it? Well, you have a stirring zither score by Anton Karas, the ferris wheel and the 'cuckoo clock' speech yet possibly its greatest triumph is to cram so much wonder into so little time.

  • Directed by: Orson Welles
  • Written by: Novel:, Whit Masterson, Screenplay:, Orson Welles, Uncredited on screenplay:, Paul Monash, Franklin Coen
  • Cast: Orson Welles, Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Marlene Dietrich

In a sleazy border town, the murder of a Mexican bigwig causes friction between corrupt local detective Hank Quinlan (Welles himself) and upright Mexican narcotics agent Vargas (Heston). Amidst a gallery of Wellesian grotesques and expressionist camerawork the dialogue between truth and justice becomes progressively more garbled.

IBLAS Talks Film- Lecturers from the Iberian and Latin American Studies department of the University of Liverpool present a series of films & talks from the wide Luso-Hispanic world that address historical and contemporary issues.

Volver draws inspiration from Italian neorealism to address themes such as sexual abuse, loneliness and death as experienced by three generations of women from an eccentric family.

Rich in magical realism, a vivid palette and complex characters typical of Almodovar's films.
