This October will see Crime Season at Movie House Dublin. Each Sunday in October, a classic Crime Movie is going to be shown.
Sunday 4th October – Reservoir Dogs:
This was Quentin Tarantino’s first big screen film and it sent shockwaves through theatres. Focusing on the aftermath of a diamond heist, it made household names of Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi and Tim Roth… and let’s not forget Stuck in the Middle with You.
Sunday 11th October – The Usual Suspects:
Before he brought us the Mutant Wars of his X-Men films, Bryan Singer directed one of the best crime films ever made. Set in the aftermath of a cocaine deal, a lone survivor is interrogated by the Police; fleshing out the crew that tried to pull of this wonder heist. The film remains a true classic of modern cinema thanks to its stars Kevin Spacey, Gabriel Byrne, Stephen Baldwin, Benicio Del Toro and Kevin Pollak. A Must See!
Sunday 18th October – The Untouchables:
Based very loosely on a television show of the 1950s, Brian De Palma brought the big screen Kevin Costner as Elliot Ness; the US Treasury Agent and his team of Untouchables to bring down Al Capone (Robert De Niro). The casting was brilliant as it earned Sean Connery his own only Oscar win for his role as the tough as nails beat cop Malone. With so many great scenes backed by Ennio Morricone’s superb score, this is a superb period crime film. And you might also learn what “The Chicago Way” is too
Sunday 25th October – Leon:
Luc Besson, better known for his visually stunning The Fifth Element and his Arthur film series, directed this very cool and very brutal insight into the life of an assassin. Jean Reno is Leon, a Cleaner who, with expert efficiency, is one of the world’s top assassins. Leon became an instant classic and Jean Reno was brought to world wide fame for his portrayal of the ultra cool and ultra calm assassin, and let’s not forget Gary Oldman’s outstanding performance as the drug crazed Stansfield. Also notable for it’s introduction of Natalie Portman is a portrayal that is still talked about to this day. Simpy essential.
That’s four brilliant crime movies to pass your Sundays with. So grab your little green bag of goodies and make your way down to Movie House Dublin Road, sit back and watch some truly brilliant cinema.
