Widescreen Weekend 2015

November 1, 2015 at 12:55 (Festivals, Film) ()

 

I didn’t make it to much of the Widescreen Weekend this year but it was great to get another chance to see Interstellar, this time on 70mm (I still prefer the Imax version). Interstellar was followed by a talk Visual Effects for 70mm Filmmaking  by Paul Franklin, Creative Director for Double Negative.

I also attended the Keynote Speech by Douglas Trumbull on The State of Cinema. There was some really fascinating insight into the history and future of cinema and could’ve gone on for hours (in a good way) if the room didn’t have to be cleared to show 2001: A Space Odyssey. Foolishly I didn’t stay to see the film having just seen it recently at Leeds International Film Festival but I think it was a mistake to not taken the opportunity to see it in 70mm.

Hamlet

March 23, 2015 at 19:30 (Film, Theatre)

‘Maxine Peake As Hamlet’ filmed at Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester for cinema screening at Hyde Park Picture House

So it turns out that like most things Shakespeare is much better in a northern accent. It’s also interesting that theatre and Shakespeare in particular is the only place where equality truly exists and there is no discrimination between race and gender.

My dislike of lengthy stories extends to Shakespeare with too many unnecessary (or misunderstood) scenes adding length and making it harder work to get through. Another problem is that Maxine Peake is so brilliant that every time she’s not on screen everything else feels so ordinary. Everybody else puts in a good performance but it was only Gillian Bevan as Polonia who stood alongside Peake as great.
