mother!
Mother

Audiences familiar with writer-director Darren Aaronofsky’s Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan will be somewhat prepared for his new psychological thriller. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Badem star as couple who’s seemingly idyllic tranquil existence gets compromised by a myriad of unwanted visitors.

What begins as a superbly crafted, stylish relationship drama starts to descend into a horrific and disturbing depiction of madness and more which will leave you questioning what you have seen for long time after.

From Friday 15 September

Culture Shock presents Logan Noir
Logan-Noir

It feels rare for a superhero movie to truly standout nowadays, but director James Mangold managed this and more with his visceral, violent and superbly crafted Wolverine movie released earlier this year. Now experience Logan in a new way presented in sheer monochrome.

“It suddenly feels connected to Westerns and noir films that I wish people would watch more of. I think it’s an exercise for real film fans to just enjoy” – James Mangold.

Wind River
Wind River

Oscar nominated writer Taylor Sheridan (SicarioHell Or High Water) picks up his directorial debut with the excellent crime thriller Wind River, completing a solid three for three.

Set in a frozen Native American reservation in Wyoming, a local game hunter (Jeremy Renner) and an out of town FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) team up to solve a disturbing and mysterious murder. A pitch perfect thriller featuring stunning performances and boasting one of the finest Mexican standoff/shoot out scenes in recent years!
