Blue Ruin

Since he is only an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family and his quest becomes a dark, Coen-esque comedy of errors.

Westfront

WW1 Film Season

Westfront

PG / 75mins / G W Pabst / 1930 / Germany, Subtitles

A rare chance to see this extraordinary  film dealing with the impact of the war on a group of infantrymen. Illustrating what, from the soldiers’ point of view, is a
futile and senseless war, it delves into the German Home Front showing a country in economic despair. A pioneering film in the early use of sound, it was Pabst’s first talkie. However, although a critical success when first released, its pacifist undertones led it to be suppressed.
Introduced by our WW1 Film Season curator Paul Sargent.
