MUBI Special

To celebrate the release of the electric and divisive ‘The Neon Demon’ we’ve handed over the reins to the man of the moment. It’s an eclectic mix of 7 films, a weird and wonderful curation where there is something for everyone. In the words of Winding-Refn himself: “There’s something for the midnight section, something for the early morning intellectual and something for the midday relaxing.”

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Tobe Hooper United States, 1974

“I never found film; film found me when I was 14 and saw this. It’s still inspiring—it’s not just a movie, it’s an experience. For the first time, I saw beyond the normal conventions of what a movie was, something so different from anything else. It was a beautiful combination of everything.” —NWR

Le silence de la mer

Jean-Pierre Melville France, 1949

“I’ve actually never seen this. It’s the first film by Jean-Pierre Melville, and I’ve always wanted to watch it. Always! This is the perfect chance to introduce it to a new audience—any Melville film is a good film. Le cercle rouge is my favorite, with its silent heist sequence, just awesome.” —NWR

To Die For

Gus Van Sant United States, 1995

“This one’s so funny, I totally remember when I first saw it. I like Gus van Sant’s work a lot and I think this was particularly overlooked. Nicole Kidman, Matt Dillon, Joaquin Phoenix, Casey Affleck—such a perfect cast. It’s super amusing, and I wish van Sant would make more films like this.” —NWR

The Curse of Frankenstein

Terence Fisher United Kingdom, 1957

Baron Victor Frankenstein, in prison for murder and trying to evade the guillotine, tells a priest how he and his mentor, Paul Krempe, had performed many scientific experiments, eventually leading to the resurrection of a dead body.

Cloverfield

Matt Reeves United States, 2008

Using handheld video cameras, this monster flick follows five New Yorkers who decide to form a rescue mission for one of their friends after an unknown creature starts attacking the city.

La dolce vita

Federico Fellini Italy, 1960

This Palme d’Or-winning international sensation chronicles seven days in the life of a playboy paparazzo named Marcello Rubini as he gallivants around the vibrant city of Rome.

Suspiria

Dario Argento Italy, 1977

From the moment she arrives in Freiberg, Germany, to attend the prestigious Tans Academy, American ballet-dancer Suzy Bannion senses that something horribly evil lurks within the walls of the age-old institution. A candy-colored nightmare from the Italian terror maestro.
