Clean Slate (Coup de torchon) - Director: Bertrand Tavernier, France, 1981. 128 mins, 35mm. R16. In French with English subtitles.
Isabelle Huppert and Philippe Noiret star in Tavernier’s inspired adaptation of Jim Thompson’s pulp novel Pop. 1280. This striking neo-noir straddles the line between violence and lyricism with dark humour and visual elegance. “Tough, smart, and marvellously unpredictable.” – Time Trailer
Guest speaker: Peter Calder on the role of the film critic – Q & A to follow.
