all—time. and we have the shiny shrimps, a story about a swimming tea m shrimps, a story about a swimming team with a difference. 50, rojo, director i'm not familiar with. should i be? this is a breakthrough feature. it is a story set in argentina in the run—up to the coup. we open with a shot of a house being emptied of all is possessions and to bea emptied of all is possessions and to be a not entirely sure why. we then cut to a scene in a restaurant of a man who seems very cultured, he is a lawyer, he is sitting at a restau ra nt ta ble lawyer, he is sitting at a restaurant table waiting to have its meal, but his wife is late. somebody says i need the table, because you're not actually eating. he says spine and stands away, he then proceeds to permit the other guy thought he explains that he was only do that because he is read and eviscerate seven fanatical crowd. outside on the street afterwards, they meet. here is a clip.
pretend it did not happen. the felon then becomes a story that is unfolding ina then becomes a story that is unfolding in a land in which people are disappearing. in which sinister forces are at work, but the bourgeois middle—class are pretending it is not happening. you get a collision between an one hand a satire of bourgeois middle—class light, because of tennis and dinner parties and on the other hand this creeping sense of real horror around the edges of it. a detective turned up the edges of it. a detective turned up to investigate a case in which the central character preferably involved. he is a tv detective, he is not just a involved. he is a tv detective, he is notjust a detective, he is a television personality. the whole film, but i will elect about it, there is a knife edge between on the one hand it is chilling and on the other it is satirical. it obviously has a strong political undercurrent, but the best thing about it is you do not have to know that in advance. you not uses phase of the time, show do not tell do not have a felon in which somebody gets up and explains the plot. it is one of those films which creeps up on you. you could
probably interpret it in many different ways, the story is told through what characters do, not what they say. i have always found that thatis they say. i have always found that that is something, show do not tell, is key for me. action is character, that the character tell the story. wider implications become i think derry are based. does a drama with specifics, which expands much greater. 0k, sounds and trading. number two. we know this goes. did you just ask me if i have seen that in all seriousness? it was not particularly scary, it was a mainstream movie, but it was hugely successful. so now we have it: chapter two. an adaptation of the stephen king novel. 27 years later, the losers club records back to derry by the re—emergent of it, the clown —like shape shifter. the problem with a silken party
freshman, the first was a coming—of—age story with horror elements in it. i budget was really well directed. this deals like something which is altogether more episodic, altogether more bitter. it is nearly three hours long. it has numerous strands and operates over two different timeframes of their individual set pieces, you are saying one now, which are played out really brilliantly and well orchestrated. but for a movie which concentrates on much on memory, forgetting, on characters going underground and discovering what lies beneath, the film itself is much more about service. it is individual moments at work in and of itself, when he put them together, they do not add up to a coherent narrative was not my biggest problem is that i think for hard to work properly, you have to be emotionally engaged was identified myself 90 minutes into the nearly three hours of this thinking that is engagement is not kicking in. that is not as
either a not brilliant spaces, it is clearly made by somebody who loves the story and the genre. but the problem is what it does not have is that emotional through line that's the first one did. you should see the first one did. you should see the part one, because it is basically a coming—of—age movie was just happens to have scary stuff in it. it is not that skype is i do remember you tell me that. something is three hours, it has to be worth that. that is an issue. it starts to fill ina that. that is an issue. it starts to fill in a tv miniseries. because, it was all those years ago. you do wonder, why is this feeling so episodic? the third felon. eyes are a trailerfor this in episodic? the third felon. eyes are a trailer for this in the cinema and i was the only one he chuckled. 0h, really? the shiny shrimps, the professional summer who is interviewed by a tv interviewer he keeps saying you are past your prime, everything is going wrong for you. he then rebuts him with a homophobic epithet. he said
something outrageous and immediately he is thrown out and told you how to make it up to the lgbt community and the way you have to do that is to become the coach to the shiny shrimps. a gay men's watch apollo tea m shrimps. a gay men's watch apollo team he will take place in croatia. —— water polo team. initially he is drilled, but inevitably, as you see in the trailer, it all works together. here is a clip. you are late. bellamy now. two minutes, copy that.
so, you get a sense of the movie from that. it is charming and funny to stop it is a bill of cliches and stereotypes. there is nothing surprising about the narrative whatsoever. you can tap on the first ten minutes of vertigo. the best way of describing this is edges like summing but meant no mac cross with purcell of the desert. you have to be pretty ha rd—hea rted purcell of the desert. you have to be pretty hard—hearted not to chuckle at this. the heart of it is in right place. it is rather a charming pelham, i enjoyed it. i do not think it is ground—breaking in anyway, but it is good fun. there's anyway, but it is good fun. there's a lot to be said for fun intraday‘s
world. markjenkins is methicillin about a fishing village in cornwall. -- mark jenkins made this felon. it is about the battle between past, present and future. it is short on clockwork hammers with 16mm black and white vellu m hammers with 16mm black and white vellum which markjenkin is developed in his studio. it is i think a genuine modern masterpiece that i think it is one of the defining british films of the decade. it has done so well in its opening week that they have expanded the number of cinemas in which it is plain because twice the number of screens that was playing in the first week, because the response has been great. it is notjust a cell in which critics are saying is great, audience is loving it.|j which critics are saying is great, audience is loving it. i am struck by the fact that i think about it every day since i had seen it. i do not love everything about it, but i think it is extremely clever. i was
really struck by the sound, as well. something, i am afraid i do not a lwa ys something, i am afraid i do not always notice sound, there is something really unusual, and a good way, about that. really haunting imagery and the way in which the sound bubbles up on the ground is really impressive. it gives you the sense that you're watching something thatis sense that you're watching something that is completely organic and utterly in and of the place that it is set in. i really enjoyed it. i doubt uchitel that he was a passionate and it comes through. absolutely, it is a passion project for it is a labour of love and it is really wonderful. quick thought of what else is around? hi light is a really adjusting side by felon with robert pattinson. it is a film which goes into outer space, but it is really about inner space. it is about what is happening within, rather than about what is happening without. it is enigmatic, very strange and something that you really have to give yourself over to. it is really worth doing. i
think he really enjoyed. pattinson is brilliant. really interesting week. thank you very much. that is all for this week, enjoy your summer whatever you decide to go and see. —— enjoy your cinema. the weather is settling down just in time for the weekend. a cool and blustery day today. the biggest of the cloud was on the weather front which has been pushing it myself. cell of that to clear across the southern counties of england and if you shop burst of rain, table top behind that there has been my sunshine and a scattering of showers. for many in the sunshine, do not appear bad at all. still a few showers this evening. the last of the rain clears away from south—eastern parts of england and then we will see more broken cloud overnight. most places will become dry. they went direction is
changing, becoming more north—westerly. the temperatures will be lower than they were last night. those are the numbers in towns and cities. as we head into the weekend, this cooler air coming down from the night and it is around this area of high pressure. it is that that is moving in a little smarter than the south—west, meaning for most of us it will be a dry weekend. it looks like it'll be dried bought tomorrow's day of the ashes. no showers this time. still quite chilly, even though they went to the event lighter. more sunshine around, as well for a lot of sun time ina around, as well for a lot of sun time in a northern habit uk, once they clear any early showers. sunny spells by the south, still one or two showers in the afternoon. most places will be dry. we had the northerly wind and for many of us that winter will be quite nice. i bet stronger than the east coast of scotla nd bet stronger than the east coast of scotland and england. best of the temperatures probably across south wales and south—west of england, 19 oi’ wales and south—west of england, 19 or 20 degrees. with clear skies and light winds overnight, saturday
night will be quite a cold one. the cold est we night will be quite a cold one. the coldest we have seen for the past few nights. could be a touch of frost, not just in few nights. could be a touch of frost, notjust in naughty scotland, but potentially the north—east of england. cold before the great north run, but at ideal conditions. the lighter wind and it should be dry some lengthy spells of sunshine. sunny, cold scott start across the board. not predicting any showers at all, just big of a stop but were cloud across western scotland and northern ireland. temperature is again, to play 16 to 18 degrees. as again, to play 16 to 18 degrees. as a move into the beginning of next week, it looks as though it be quite a mixed beginning. some often wet and windy weather, too. the wet weather comes a monday, is that weather comes a monday, is that weather front moves down across the uk and it will develop a few waves and wiggles on it. some heavier rain in wales and the south—west stopped those are the temperatures. quite a chilly day, 1a to 15, maybe even 16 degrees at best.
opposition parties at westminster move to block boris johnson's plan for a mid—october general election. labour, the lib dems, the snp and plaid cymru agree not to back a snap poll — in case it leads to a no—deal brexit. we are not going to help boris johnson shut down parliament and trying to drag us out of the european union over an election period. that's not going to happen. boris johnson had wanted an election on october 15th — he called the opposition's stance an "extraordinary political mistake". they don't trust the people. they don't want an election. 0k. perhaps it is that they don't think they will win. fine. i'll go to brussels get a deal. with the house of lords voting today in favour of a law
