|4th Mar 2006||20:30||Film||Trinity College Film Society||MANHATTAN (1979) Woody Allen. Issac Davis (Woody Allen) is torn between two girlfriends: the earnest seventeen year old Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), and indecisive pseudo-intellectual Mary Wilkie (Diane Keaton). With its glorious all-Gershwin score, its breathtakingly elegant black-and-white, widescreen cinematography by Gordon Willis (best-known for shooting the Godfather movies), its deeply shaded performances and its extremely witty screenplay full of neuroticism, this romantic comedy is Woody Allen at the peak of his creative powers (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).|

|20th Feb 2006||20:30||Film||Trinity College Film Society||DUCK SOUP (1933) Marx Brothers. The story in this film is merely a side dish to the anarchic brilliance of the Marx Brothers. This is one of the most original and wacky films ever created. It is full of great wit one minute and outragious slapstick the next. A commercial and critical failure at the time, it is now considered one of the greatest comedy films of all time. One can imagine how conventional comedy could have remained had it not been for this film. The Marx Brothers at their best (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).|

|18th Feb 2006||20:30||Film||Trinity College Film Society||THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (1942) Orson Welles. Welles will forever be remembered for 'Citizen Kane,' but his second film 'The Magnificent Ambersons' made only a year later is equally audacious in cinematography. Welles tells the story of the decline of a once great family linking the dramatic change in their fortunes with the dramatic changes occuring in America at that time. The revolutionary camera angles are as fresh and innovative as ever. The film is also infamous for being messed about by the studios. In Welles' absence some 50 minutes and an unhappy ending were cut and then destroyed. In spite of this Welles' genius still shines through. While this film is not as well known as 'Citizen Kane' it is certainly as deserving of interest (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).|
