Vanishing Point (Sarafian, 1971):
Deptford Film Club, Amersham Arms, 388 New Cross Road, SE14 6TY, 7.30pm
Now this is a proper treat. A Grindhouse cinema favourite and a film well worth making the trip south of the river for. The ending is especially brilliant. Here are the details of the screening and some information about the club.
Time Out review:
'Having just driven 1,500 miles non-stop from California to Colorado, Sarafian's sullenly uncommunicative anti-hero pauses long enough to grab a supply of bennies, accept a bet that he won't make it back in 15 hours, and zooms off again. It's a marvellous idea: a strange, obsessive odyssey by a man driven like the lemmings by an inexplicable need to keep on going. Marvellously shot on location by John A Alonzo.' Tom Milne
