Going Out: Film - FIVE FROM THE LONDON FILM FESTIVAL
Saturday 06 November 1999
Being John Malkovich (Tue 8.30pm, Odeon West End)
In which John Cusack's nerd puppeteer sells entrance into the skull of actor John Malkovich. It sounds absurd, but it's witty, innovative and audaciously played throughout. See it before the hype gets out of hand.
Boys Don't Cry (Sun, 6pm, Odeon West End)
Hilary Swank is the rebel with a corset who alights in a Midwestern backwater; Chloe Sevigny the bored, boozy teen who gets taken in. Humming with dark energy, this marks a stunning debut for director Kim Pearce.
EDtv (Thur 6pm, Fri 2.45pm, Odeon West End 2)
A rollicking medialand satire, EDtv has Matthew McConnaughey as the grinning slacker star of a 24-hour docu-soap. Ron Howard directs at a rate of knots.
Topsy Turvy (Mon 8.30pm, Tue 3pm, Odeon West End 2)
Mike Leigh's expectation-confounding enterprise (a backstage period musical, no less), paints a robust portrait of opera gurus Gilbert and Sullivan. Regular players Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall and Alison Steadman provide some sense of continuity.
The Limey (Sat pm, Odeon West End)
Steven Soderbergh's eccentric crime caper amounts to a cut-up collage of Sixties sensibilities and an affectionate Valentine to a rejuvenated Terence Stamp.
