Sunday 29 July 2012
El Bulli: Cooking In Progress (108 mins, 12A)
Uninformative documentary about the legendary restaurant. We watch as chefs develop their revolutionary creations, but we don't learn who they are, or what drives them.
The Man Inside (100 mins, 15)
With more traumas than a year of EastEnders, this dispiriting Britflick features an aspiring boxer, Ashley Thomas, who fears he has inherited his father's criminal tendencies.
Red Desert (117 mins, 12A)
A re-issue of Antonioni's 1964 film, in which Monica Vitti loses her marbles in a hellishly industrialised Italian port, while Richard Harris stands around looking extremely un-Italian.
Woman In A Dressing Gown (93 mins, PG)
Another re-issue, this sensitive adultery drama from 1957 stars Yvonne Mitchell as a manic housewife, Anthony Quayle as her husband, and Sylvia Syms as his mistress. Recommended.
