Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 77: Thu Mar 17

Tangerine (Baker, 2015): BFI Southbank, Studio Cinema, 6.40pm


One of the best movies of last year rolls around with three screenings at the BFI Flare Festival. The film is also being shown on 19th and 25th March. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
This rollicking indie comedy takes place among the hookers of West Hollywood on Christmas Eve, a time for peace on earth and good will toward—bitch, I will fucking kill you! Back on the street after 28 days in jail, working girl Sin-Dee (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) learns that her pimp/boyfriend has been cheating on her and, dragging along her best pal (Mya Taylor), sets out to collar the woman in question. Writer-director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway) locates the viewer so squarely inside the characters' sad, constricted world that when Sin-Dee and her nemesis overlook their differences long enough to share a crack pipe in the ladies' room, they might as well be drinking egg nog at a holiday party. With Baker regulars Karren Karagulian, Mickey O'Hagan, and James Ransone.
