Good news this cauld winter night, I just had it confirmed that The Wrecking Crew documentary will screen as The Monorail Film Club feature during the 2009 Glasgow Film Festival. Two screenings, at Glasgow Film Theatre (7pm and 9pm) on Sunday 22nd January 2009. Clear your diaries and make that the only date you keep that weekend.
Coming up in that very location this Sunday is the excellent Sling Blade and Who I am And What I Want @ 7pm.
Karl Childers, now a grown man, is released from a psychiatric hospital where he has been hospitalised since the age of 12 for the murder of his mother and her lover. Karl settles in his old, small hometown, occupying himself by fixing motors. Directed by Billy Bob Thornton, this character study of several Southern misfits possesses the remorseless inevitability of a Greek tragedy.
We are also screening short film, Who I Am And What I Want (7 minutes), a David Shrigley and Chris Shepherd animation.
