Free film screenings at CCCP Kino

The CCCP Bar presents CCCP Kino, a series of free film screenings.

BARFLY

Night after night, the usual suspects meditate in front of their shot glasses in a dive like any other. One of these regulars is Henry Chinaski, a sometime poet from Los Angeles, who engages in the same ritual every night. He drinks, writes poems, drinks again, picks fights and ends up on the street. One day, Henry discovers Wanda at the other end of the bar – she’s a drinker like Henry, but still a classy woman. When the drunkard has spent his last dollar on booze, Wanda asks him to come home with her.

Underground poet Charles Bukowski and Oscar-nominated director Barbet Schroeder ("More," "Maîtresse," "Single White Female") crafted an ingenious drinker’s ballad in which Mickey Rourke puts all his acting skills to the test and cuts a figure of stunning authenticity.

Year: 1987

Director: Barbet Schroeder

Cast: Mickey Rourke, Faye Dunaway, Alice Krige, Frank Stallone, Jack Nance

Cinematography: Robby Müller

Running Time: 96 min.

In English with German subtitles

The end is nigh, and civilization is teetering on the brink. Anarchist radio DJ Angry Bob (Iggy Pop) curses humanity and Moe (Dylan McDermott) returns from scrap collecting. He brings back a Christmas gift for his artist girlfriend Jill (Stacy Travis). It's the head of a broken M.A.R.K. 13, a self-repairing, indestructible killer cyborg.

After Moe's departure the next morning, the android, which was developed by the military as an anti-personnel weapon, turns Jill's studio apartment into a war zone. While Moe is desperately trying to find a way back into the malfunctioning high-security apartment, Jill's last battle has already begun.

A sexy and atmospheric post-apocalyptic thriller with cameo appearances by Carl McCoy (Fields of the Nephilim), Lemmy (Mötörhead) and Iggy Pop.

Original music by Simon Boswell with tracks by Ministry and Public Image Ltd.

Director: Richard Stanley

CCCP Kino: BLISS (1985) [Director’s Cut, unavailable on DVD in Europe]

CCCP Kino is proud to present a true rarity – the first feature film by Australian director Ray Lawrence ("Lantana","Jindabyne"). The film has been nicknamed "Australian Beauty" due to its similarity to Sam Mendes' "American Beauty," which it pre-dates by 15 years.

Harry Joy (Barry Otto), an advertising executive in an unnamed Australian city, known for his ability to tell stories, has a terrifying near-death experience after suffering a heart attack. Upon recovering, he believes himself to be either in a hellish version of the world he knew, or with his eyes opened to an altogether different view of that world. He eventually discovers that all of his family members have been keeping dirty little secrets and his latest client is a carcinogenic polluter.

Harry tries to reform and steer a morally correct path, abandoning most of the trappings of his previous affluent life, to the dismay and disruption of everyone around him. He is also seemingly "tested" by a series of bizarre, frightening and blackly humorous chain of events that land him in a police station. The extended version of this sequence was cut from the original theatrical release after the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, but the full length scene featuring a tour-de-force monologue by Barry Otto at the police station (captured in a single unedited take) was restored for the film's re-issue in the 1990s, and this is the version of the film we will be showing.

Year: 1985

Director: Ray Lawrence

Cast: Barry Otto, Lynette Curran, Helen Jones, Miles Buchanan, Gia Carides

Cinematography: Paul Murphy

Running Time: 135 min.

In English (English subtitles available)
