BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO (15)
(UK/Germany 2012) dir. Peter Strickland. 92m. Digital.
Toby Jones, Cosimo Fusco, Fatma Mohamed, Antonio Mancino, Chiara D'Anna.
After the acclaimed KATALIN VARGA, writer-director Peter Strickland returns with another eerily atmospheric and compelling original. The perfectly cast Toby Jones stars as Gilderoy a timid sound engineer from Dorking who finds himself in 1970's Rome working on the sound effects for a gruesome horror film, "The Equestrian Vortex", directed by maestro director Gianfranco Santini, all menace and mystery. Gilderoy is more used to working on nature documentaries and as he becomes immersed in a very different world, life begins to imitate art and his nightmarish creations drive him to confront his own past. Possibly like the fictitious "The Equestrian Vortex", BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO is a rich, tense and teasing triumph that offers many pleasures on many levels.
A great local cinema in Dalston. The Rio shows mainstream films and is also responsive to the interests of sections of the community often ignored by mainstream commercial cinema. Examples of this are the annual Turkish and Kurdish film festivals, the Saturday morning Children’s Picture Club, midweek Classic Matinées, the recently introduced Parent and Baby matinées and participation in Spanish and Gay and Lesbian film festivals. While all the other cinemas in Hackney have disappeared or become snooker halls and car auction rooms, the Rio continues to adapt and flourish.
