Eclectica 159 - Entebbe + Rawhead Rex + Intimate Lighting
When The Dancing Stops … Leave
Our latest Film of the Week, José Padilha's "Entebbe", is a tale of crisis, violence, revolution, and the old order breaking down - which is probably why we start off by accidentally junking the running order.
Eventually (and with far more discussion of interpretive dance and changing fashions in onscreen captions than we expected), we get to Off the Shelf and two of our favourite labels. Arrow Video unleash yet another ancient evil with "Rawhead Rex" - George Pavlou's adaptation of Clive Barker's short story of the same name which Tim takes a swing at. Meanwhile, Second Run have reissued Ivan Passer's Czech classic "Intimate Lighting", but does this orchestral comedy hit the right notes for Graham?
Stay tuned till the end for news about next week's show, where we plan the most ambitious comic book crossover event since ... erm ... two weeks ago.
