What’s trending and why?
Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend a one-off screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1929 silent film Blackmail in the grand setting of the grounds of the British Museum, where part of the story is set. The film is one of the “Hitchcock 9″ – nine surviving silent films made by Hitchcock that have deteriorated over time.
Watching black and white on a large screen is a joy often confined to the arthouse nowadays, but if frothing seed pods sounds like your idea of a good Saturday night, you shouldn’t miss Invasion of the Body Snatchers, showing this week at the BFI.
