The Alpinist

The Alpinist
  • 2021
  • US
  • 1h 32min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Mortimer, Nick Rosen

If you enjoyed Free Solo or Touching the Void, then The Alpinist is the one for you - a documentary guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.

Marc-Andr Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. On remote alpine faces, the free-spirited 23-year-old makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history. Yet, he draws scant attention. With no cameras, no rope, and no margin for error, Marc-Andr's approach is the essence of solo adventure. Intrigued by these quiet accomplishments, veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall) sets out to make a film about Marc-Andr. But the Canadian soloist is an elusive subject: nomadic and publicity shy, he doesn't own a phone or car, and is reluctant to let the film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. As Peter struggles to keep up, Marc-Andrs climbs grow bigger and more daring. Elite climbers are amazed by his accomplishments, while others worry that he is risking too much. Then, Marc-Andr embarks on a historic adventure in Patagonia that will redefine what is possible in solo climbing.

The Alpinist is an intimate documentary of a visionary climber who follows the path of his own passion, despite the heaviest of possible consequences.

The Last Duel

The Last Duel
  • 2021
  • UK / US
  • 2h 32min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck

The Last Duel is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth.

Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield.

Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.

Alec Utgoff, Maja Ostaszewska, Agata Kulesza

When a mysterious stranger arrives in a gated community on the outskirts of a large Polish city, he is welcomed by the wealthy residents who embrace his talents as a masseur. Though his hands provide healing, his eyes seem to penetrate their very souls, lifting a disquiet in each of their lives. Zhenia (Utgoff) possesses a magical gift and to the residents his Russian accent also sounds like a song from the past, a peaceful melody from their childhood when the world was a safer place. And though his hypnotic techniques bring calm, his background remains a mystery, leaving the residents to wonder what other secrets he holds. Featuring a hypnotic lead performance from Utgoff, this striking new film from Małgorzata Szumowska and her longtime collaborator Michał Englert is wondrous, compelling and uplifting.

Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai
  • 1954
  • Japan
  • 3h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Written by: Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto, Hideo Oguni
  • Cast: Takashi Shimura, Toshirō Mifune

A group of timid villagers seek protection against the excesses of a brutal warlord by hiring seven heroic samurai. Seminal Japanese action picture, with a slow-building dignity matching the best of John Ford, and in its stylishly aesthetic handling of screen violence, a profound influence on everyone from Peckinpah to Eastwood. Highly recommended.
