WHO CAN YOU TRUST? 33 SUN 5 NOV SUN 12 NOV 16:50 NFT3 14:50 NFT3 SUN 5 NOV SUN 12 NOV 19:50 NFT3 17:30 NFT2 + HIGH AND LOW TENGOKU TO JIGOKU Japan 1963. Dir Akira Kurosawa. With Toshirô Mifune, Yutaka Sada, Kyoko Kagawa. 143min. 35mm. EST. 12A A milestone of the police procedural, Kurosawa’s masterly, labyrinthine adaptation of Ed McBain’s King’s Ransom intricately details the kidnapping of a prominent businessman’s young son. Focusing as much on the effects on the executive’s life (even after the case’s conclusion) as it does on the crime itself, it’s both a grippingly immersive thriller and a pointed critique of amorality in post-war Japan. JR INVESTIGATE DOUBLE: MEMORIES OF MURDER SALINUI CHUEOK South Korea 2003. Dir Joon-ho Bong. With Kang-ho Song, Sang-kyung Kim, Roe-ha Kim. 131min. 35mm. EST. 15 UNCONFIRMED A series of gruesome murders in a small South Korean town put the local police officers at the centre of national attention. With help from an experienced detective from Seoul, they race against time to find the killer before more victims are discovered. Masterfully suspenseful and with quirky dark humour, Memories of Murder established Bong as one of South Korean’s most celebrated directors. ABa #BFIThriller @BFI
