STRANDS @BFI 53 MON 8 MAY* FRI 12 MAY 18:20 NFT2 21:10 NFT2 WED 10 MAY SUN 14 MAY 20:50 NFT2 18:10 NFT2 May + intro by programmer Michael Blyth* USA 2002. Dir Lucky McKee. With Angela Bettis, Jeremy Sisto, Anna Faris, James Duval. 93min. Format TBC. 18 Like the illegitimate lovechild of Carrie White and Frankenstein’s monster, Lucky McKee’s masterful debut tells the story of a strange young woman and her attempts to make a meaningful connection. Featuring a revelatory performance from Angela Bettis as the titular anti-heroine, this imaginative blend of creeping dread and heartbreaking pathos is often cited as one of this century’s finest horror films. The Woman USA 2011. Dir Lucky McKee. With Pollyanna McIntosh, Angela Bettis, Sean Bridgers, Lauren Ashley Carter. 101min. Digital. 18 Labelled a modern classic by some, ‘torture porn’ by others, McKee’s uncompromising adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s novel triggered heated debate when it first debuted. An unhinged family man captures a feral woman, subjecting her to a torrent of abuse in a disturbed effort to ‘civilise’ her. A brutal yet searingly intelligent critique of patriarchal abuse with far more than exploitation on its mind.
