Dir Jean Renoir. With Patricia Walters, Radha, Adrienne Corri, Esmond Knight. 99min. 35mm. U Renoir’s adaptation of a novel by Rumer Godden (Black Narcissus) – a coming-of-age tale loosely centred on the teenage daughter of an English family living in Bengal during the Raj – is at once an outsider’s view of Indian culture, one of the great colour films, and a becalmed, near-mystical meditation on life’s vicissitudes. Time being eternal and cyclical, everything has its place in the scheme of things. Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid USA 1973. Dir Sam Peckinpah. With James Coburn, Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan, Richard Jaeckel. 122min. 35mm. 18 Peckinpah’s account of the hunt undertaken by ageing sheriff Pat Garrett for his old friend Billy the Kid is characteristically an elegy for times past, and a sorrowful acknowledgement of the inevitable arrival of a New West. Enhancing this melancholic mood are Dylan’s soundtrack and a marvellous cast of familiar Western faces including Katy Jurado, Jack Elam, Barry Sullivan, Chill Wills and Slim Pickens.

With Max Schreck, Alexander Granach, Gustav von Wangenheim. 96min. Digital. EST. PG. With Hans Erdmann score Murnau’s classic vampire movie benefits from a superb conception of the Count, almost literally subhuman with his painfully stiff bearing, extended ears and fingers, and a small wizened face suggestive of constant anxiety at the prospect of immortality. No wonder his threat to the horrified Hutter and his wife is partly sexual; he seems to be of another species, from another era. See p25 for our Halloween double-bill Cría Cuervos Raise Ravens + intro by Maria Delgado, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama* Spain 1976. Dir Carlos Saura. With Geraldine Chaplin, Ana Torrent, Conchita Pérez, Héctor Alterio. 109min. Digital. EST. 12A A small girl (Torrent, Spirit of the Beehive) witnesses the death of her military officer father, and believes she can control life and death, since she’s also visited by her late mother... A lyrical, mysterious, astute study of repression and resentment, Cría Cuervos concerns both the relationship between the living and the dead, and the end of the Franco era. INTRO
