It has been an interesting mix of alternative, underground and mainstream this week at MouthLondon’s Media hub. Yinka Olumomi presented the much anticipated ‘Part 2’ of Brad Pitt’s top 5 performances to date. It was good to see the inclusion of Kalifornia and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, especially as they can often be overlooked with the glitz and glamour Pitt is surrounded by and too often associated with.
There were two film reviews this week. Firstly Dolphin Tale, a surprisingly emotional true story fit for all the family. It’s still on general release so check out the review if you haven’t already and head to your nearest cinema for a heart-warming mix of smiles and tears.
…the team that bring you the best of Bass, Electronic and Dubstep are back again…
Next up was Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In. Antonio Banderas stars in the Spanish directors’ latest work. With an impressive extended release on the big screen it’s not too late to find out what all the critics were raving about as it is still being screened at selected cinemas across the capital.
Spectrum are back on the scene and if you haven’t heard of them yet just take a quick look around to check that you’ve not mistakenly been under a massive rock for the last few months. After the hugely successful re-launch at the start of October in their new venue; The Electric in Brixton, the team that bring you the best of Bass, Electronic and Dubstep are back again on the 5th November to break the sound barrier once more. The preview went live on Thursday and with the most impressive line-up yet, it is sure to be the one party you cannot miss.
Did you know Eric Clapton and Neil Young started out on the streets?
To round-up the week Joshua King gave us all an insight into the culture of busking. Did you know Eric Clapton and Neil Young started out on the streets? It’s great to see that one of the original platforms for musical expression is still thriving with festivals and charities aplenty supporting the cause.
As well as the first part to our new top 5 countdown, next week we will have a review of the chiller Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and Donnie Brasco. Remember? That was back when Al Pacino made good films!
See you next week.
