TOM's Film Club: Shoplifters (15)

Winner of the 2018 Cannes Palme d’Or, Hirokazu Kore-eda’s (After Life, Still Walking) Shoplifters is a complex, profoundly moving drama about the forces holding a struggling family together, which has garnered thematic comparisons to last year’s Palme d’Or winner Parasite in regards to issues of family, class and equality, though stylistically the two couldn’t be any more different in terms of genre and tone (Catch Parasite here!) Osamu (Lily Franky), his wife Nobuyu (Sakura Andô) and grandma Hatsue (played by the late great veteran Japanese character actress Kirin Kiki who was a regular in the films of Kore-eda) head the Shibatas; a poverty-stricken family living in a ramshackle Tokyo bungalow who routinely turn to petty thieving to make ends meet. After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and son Shota (Kairi Jyo) happen upon Yuri (Miyu Sasaki), a little girl sheltering from the cold, and take her in. Despite the continued hardships of their existence, this newly modified family lives happily – until an unforeseen incident begins to test their bond.  By shining the spotlight on an unconventional domestic unit with insight, compassion and humour, Kore-eda gives rare prominence to Japanese society’s urban underclass and questions the possibilities of survival on the margins. An incredibly satisfying film made up of delicate brushstrokes, Shoplifters charms while eschewing overt sentimentality and is full of the director’s trademark subtlety and nuanced moral inquiry. “This is a brilliant and audacious film, one of his very best, a study of family trauma and fear of poverty, reviving themes from earlier films such as Nobody Knows (2004) and Like Father Like Son (2013)” - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Japanese with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 15, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 121 mins

TOM's Film Club: Parasite - Black & White (15)

“Nobody is all black or all white” Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes and historically the first foreign-language film ever to win the Best Picture Oscar at the Academy Awards, South Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho’s superb blackly comic satirical masterpiece Parasite returns, but this time as the latest to undergo a modern monochrome makeover à la George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road - Black and Chrome and James Mangold’s Logan Noir. A downtrodden family eke out a hand-to-mouth existence in a basement apartment. Struggling to earn enough for basic survival, their luck changes when the son, Ki-woo (Choi Woo-Shik) is employed to teach English to the daughter of the wealthy Park family in their suburban home. Slowly, daughter, father and mother (Park So-dam, Song Kang-ho and Jang Hye-jin, respectively) bluff their way into roles for the wealthy Seoul household and cunningly infiltrate every aspect of the Parks’ daily life. But when an interloper threatens their newfound comfort, things quickly spiral out of control. Full of energy, verve and a transgressive visual wit, Parasite is incredibly watchable but also brims with rage at the inequalities of contemporary capitalism, with a real focus on the desperation, misery and immorality of poverty. A masterful creation, brilliantly designed, shot and performed, and now presented here in this new colour palette, the film becomes more intimate, with emotions colder and faces sterner – it provides an illuminating counterpoint to a film that has taken audiences by storm, while also fulfilling a long-held dream of Director Bong’s to make a Black & White movie inspired in the style of one of his favourite films, FW Murnau’s Nosferatu. “At the risk of adding to the hype, Parasite really is the kind of remarkable experience that makes modern movie-going such a joy. I saw it for the fourth time last week and I’m now desperate to view the black-and-white version that Bong recently unveiled at the Rotterdam film festival” - Mark Kermode, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Korean with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 15, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 132 mins

TOM's Film Club: Long Days Journey Into Night (12A)

At only thirty years old and heavily influenced by Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker to make films different from the mainstream, Bi Gan’s second feature is a breathless and audacious neo-noir like nothing you’ve ever seen before, culminating in a sweeping and dream-like one-hour-long climatic shot, unbroken and unedited. Luo Hongwu (Huang Jue) is a former casino manager who returns to his hometown after being away for a long time for the funeral of his father. Upon finding an old photo in a broken electronic clock (one of many of the film’s signifiers on the themes of memory and time), he begins to search obsessively for Wan Qiwen (Tang Wei), a woman he once loved, who disappeared mysteriously and whom he has never been able to forget, as seen through frequent flashbacks of her in a green dress. Fearing her disappearance might be connected with her attachment to a gangster who also murdered Lou’s friend many years previously (known only in the film as “Wildcat”), Luo’s return and subsequent search for Wan leads him on a path that interweaves both past and present, as well as dream and reality. Told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic of a detective story, the second a nocturnal dream comprised impressively in a hallucinatory hour-long shot which seems to span a longer field of memory and time (plus table tennis, pool and karaoke!). Long Day’s Journey Into Night is a technical tour-de-force that demands to be seen on a big screen and will restore your faith in the power and mystery of cinema. “It's a vanishingly rare occurrence to see something on screen and be unable to wrap your head around how it was achieved. But in Long Day's Journey Into Night... some kind of sorcery is at work” - Wendy Ide, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 12A, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 138 mins Please note: This is the 2D version of this film

TOM's Film Club: Weathering With You (12A)

The highest-grossing Japanese film of 2019 and the much-anticipated follow-up to the highest-grossing anime of all time, Your Name, Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You is a magical modern-day fantasy and a perfect antidote to a rainy day. Hodaka has run away from home and is eking out a meagre living in Tokyo. He's immediately broke from the move and lives his life in isolation, made especially more draining as it is the wettest rainy season on record in Tokyo. However, he soon meets a young woman named Hina, who has the power to control and manipulate the weather. Both low on money, they see a way to profit from her ability as a “sun girl,” charging people money for her to pray the rain away, initially unaware of the consequences of Hina’s gift.  Beautifully and breathtakingly animated using traditional hand-drawing (a style of animation sadly absent in the West with the rise of computer animation), with a fittingly upbeat soundtrack, Shinkai continues his impressive reputation as a master director, writer and animator, and it’s little wonder that he’s being hailed in some circles as the heir-apparent to Hayao Miyazaki. “Japanese, apparently, has at least 50 words for rain. The film gives us the cinematic equivalent. It’s everywhere: raindrops bouncing off umbrellas, ploshing into puddles on grey streets or shining like diamonds on electricity cables. Each instance is a miracle of loveliness” - Cath Clarke, Guardian Seated (unreserved) In Japanese with English subtitles Book two or more films in same transaction and save £1 per ticket (discount auto-applies at checkout, full price tickets only) TOM’s Friends get 15% off 1625 tickets available for those aged 16-25 and booking independently of parents/guardians (limited availability), click here for more info Rated: 12A, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult Duration: 112 mins

TOM's Film Club: First Love (15)

Blood, gore, severed heads, but with a tender love story at its heart - Takashi Miike is back with his 103rd film, First Love, which will be the launch night and preview for this year’s Scalarama Sussex, a month-long celebration of cinema every September across Brighton and beyond. One night in Tokyo, Leo, a young boxer down on his luck and faced with a life-threatening illness, meets his ‘first love’ Yuri, who also goes by “Monica,” a sex worker and an addict, though still an innocent. Unwittingly caught up and embroiled in a drug-smuggling heist, Leo and Monica find themselves pursued through the night by a corrupt cop, a Yakuza, his nemesis, and a female assassin hired by the Chinese Triads, who are all baying for blood.  The latest film from the director of Ichi the Killer, Audition and 13 Assassins is a madcap chase thriller, with more than its fair share of violence, unadulterated mayhem, carnage and a wicked sense of humour, reminiscent of the great Tarantino films of the 90s. “The Looney Tunes mayhem never unbalances the film. Miike somehow manages to find a poignant port of call on the other side of First Love’s giddy turbulence, delivering the perfect showcase for what this former enfant terrible does best. It’s so good, it might just inspire a deeper dive into the preceding 100-plus pictures” - Michael Leader, Guardian About Scalarama Scalarama is a national cinematic movement that celebrates film every September, inviting everybody who screens films to others to unite for a month of marvellous movies. Inspired by the legendary Scala Cinema and with DIY in its veins, Scalarama is marking its 10th edition in 2020 with SCALARAMA X.

TOM's Film Club: Kusama - Infinity

Before you experience Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms at the Tate Modern, join WO50FF for the launch night of Women Over Fifty Film Festival 2020 with the immersive and illuminating Kusama – Infinity, a documentary 17 years in the making with a legendary artist over fifty as the focus, plus a couple of short films still to be confirmed for the night. Exploring Yayoi Kusama’s fierce determination to become a world-renowned artist, the film documents her entire life-story, from her early years in a conservative family in rural Japan to how she found her way to America on the heels of WWII – without any connections and speaking only broken English, she devoted herself to her one true love, making art. From the 1960s onwards, her radical artistic vision rivalled those of contemporaries such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, with a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry, and novels. After working as an artist for over six decades, people around the globe are experiencing her Infinity Mirrored Rooms in record numbers, which is a major focus of this film, and two such rooms will be on display at Tate Modern from 11th May 2020 – 9th May 2021, among some of her other prominent works. An infinitely amazing, thoughtful, compassionate and deeply profound look at one of the most influential and unsung artists of the modern era. Director Heather Lenz captures the eccentric essence of this fascinating figure, while also making a bigger statement about overlooked female artists and artists of colour. “In many ways, this is a story of a woman who had to fight her way to the top all over again, having battled depression, the complacent sexism and bland bigotry of the New York scene, and then finally the aghast conservatism of Japan [...] the film is a respectful and valuable tribute” - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian About Women Over Fifty Film Festival Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) champions and showcases the work of older women on screen and behind the camera with an annual short film festival and year round events and film screenings. This year’s festival will be taking place at the Depot in Lewes on 26th and 27th September.

Jason Byrne: Audience Precipitation

He’s back for more comedy chaos! Jason has learnt over the past few years that we all need to “play” a bit more in our lives. With this in mind, Jason will do what he does best, connecting with the audience in a way no other comic can. Whether it’s inviting or dragging (as it has been known) people up onto stage and making a “holy show of them” as they say in Ireland. Jason’s Audience Precipitation will be a laugh out loud, must-see show, with a light drizzle of audience participation… oooh, clever that. “Unmissable” - Evening Standard “Watching a new Jason Byrne show is a bit like witnessing lightning in a bottle” - Edinburgh Evening News  “Byrne is consistently brilliant” - Metro  “The outright king of live comedy” - Times

Adam Buxton Rambles

To coincide with its publication, we invite you to join comedian and podcast host Adam Buxton as he talks about and reads from his upcoming new book. It incorporates rambles on topics including parenthood, formative cultural influences of the 80s, confrontations on trains, wet dreams, boarding school trauma, The Adam & Joe Show, dead Dads and David Bowie. The evening will include both funny and serious moments and some questions will be answered, maybe even some VERY big ones. To be honest that’s unlikely, but it should be fun anyway. Copies of the book will be available and there will be a signing session after the show.

Jonathan Pie: Fake News Tour (Warm-Up)

If no news is good news, then good news is fake news. Jonathan Pie returns to the road to warm-up ahead of his Fake News tour 2020. He’ll be berating the people in power - and the journalists apparently holding them to account. Jonathan Pie is the exasperated news reporter whose videos have been seen across the world. His previous two tours have taken in venues such as the Hammersmith Apollo and the London Palladium and performances across the US and Australia. Jonathan Pie has been described as ‘brilliant, brave, raw and analytical without forgetting to be funny’ by Ricky Gervais. With over 1.2 million Facebook followers, his videos regularly achieve millions of views going viral internationally. His response to the election of Donald Trump was viewed more than 150 million times worldwide. "A staggering tour-de-force of righteous visceral rage" - Chortle "A true tour-de-force" - Evening Standard "As exquisitely performed as it is well written, damningly scathing of current political discourse and engagement" - Scotsman

Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us

Mark uses his trademark style of storytelling, stand-up, subversion and really, really well researched material to try and find out how the hell we ended up in the middle of this shit show. 50 Things About Us is a show about songs, gongs, loot, tradition, wigs, nicking, statues, art and identity. A sort of funny national edition of Who Do You Think You Are? Mark says, “Look, I have been doing this for 34 years. I have gone from stand-up to theatre and half way back again. It’s another slightly odd show, a sort of sweary History Channel with laughs and creative mischief. If you’ve seen my shows before, this one is going to be a show in the vein of 100 Acts of Minor Dissent.”

Think Blur vs Oasis, Fatboy Slim, Primal Scream, The Verve, The Chemical Brothers, Faithless, The Prodigy and a whole lot more.

THE BLUES BAND: 40 Years & Back For More

2020 sees The Blues Band Celebrate their 40th year together Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher. Formed in 1979 by five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, The Blues Band are celebrating 40 glorious years as Britain and Europe’s leading exponents of one of the greatest musical traditions of all time.  It began back then with Paul Jones, actor, singer, musician and radio presenter, no stranger to the pop charts throughout the 1960s as front man for the hugely successful Manfred Mann. Fellow Manfred member, Tom McGuinness, shared the same love of the blues - he’d started out with Eric Clapton in The Roosters. They brought in legendary slide guitar maestro and singer Dave Kelly, who brought along a talented fellow musician, bassist Gary Fletcher. With the addition of Tom’s chart-topping partner from McGuinness Flint, drummer Hughie Flint, (ex John Mayall’s Blues Breakers), that first line-up stormed the post-punk music scene, and contrary to their expectations, they soon had an international career playing the music they loved.  After two and a half years, Flint left due to the pressures of touring. His place was admirably filled by another fine drummer, Rob Townsend, a member of one of Britain’s most eclectic, legendary outfits, Family. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. But what history. TV, films, a stadium tour with Dire Straits, over 20 albums and thousands of shows later, they’ve earned a worldwide reputation as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms.  With this all-star line-up, it’s hardly surprising.  What’s on offer is always the same; a stunning menu of original compositions and blues classics, all delivered with passion, knowledge, love of the genre and entertaining showmanship. Other blues groups come and go, but it takes something special to achieve the iconic prestige they've earned. If you want to know what 40 years of skill and devotion sound like, here’s your chance - if you love the blues, it doesn’t get any better than The Blues Band

Eddi Reader: 40 Years Live Tour

Eddi Reader is perhaps Scotland's greatest living female voice. In 2020, she celebrates her 40th year on stage with the ‘40 Years Live’ concert tour. From her earliest years playing the folk clubs of western Scotland and learning how to street sing across Europe (like her hero Edith Piaf) Eddi's path soon lead her to a professional career in music as a backing singer for Eurythmics and Gang of Four. Her own band, Fairground Attraction, went onto have huge international success and number one hits with ‘Perfect’ and debut album ‘First of a Million Kisses’ which stormed the charts in the late 1980's. Throughout her successful solo career, Eddi has released consistently great works, including highly acclaimed albums such as 'The Songs of Robert Burns' and last years 'Cavalier'. She has won Brit Awards, been awarded four honorary degrees, an MBE, sung to millions on some of the worlds greatest concert and festival stages and collaborated with a host of stars across a myriad of genres including Folk, Jazz, Pop, World, Punk and even Classical work with various orchestras. In 2019, Eddi was invited to be a special guest with Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for an extensive tour, she released her ‘Starlight’ EP, played sold out headline shows, recorded a programme for BBC Radios' Classic Scottish Album series about her Robert Burns recordings and appeared on BBC Television's Songs of Praise and as part of Billy Connolly's ‘Made In Scotland’ series. 2020's ‘40 Years Live’ concerts promise to be something special, as with any Eddi Reader concert, the magic is being made in the moment, no two concerts ever the same.
