2016 - Dir.:  John Goldschmidt - HD Digital presentation - UK.

At the FeckenOdeon we seem to make a habit of finding films that the main circuits couldn’t be bothered to show. “Dough” is just such a film. It’s a truly British comedy featuring Jews and Muslims and drugs… and old people and young people…. And that’s probably the reason the posh London critics couldn’t understand it. It’s about young and old of mixed races and religions helping each other and, if it has a message, it puts it across on a charming and gentle way. Yes, there are drugs… and it’s no spoiler to say that they get into the bread mix… and if there’s a message it’s to say that not all drugs destroy lives - just as not all Muslims are terrorists and not all Jews are misers.

There are some delightful performances from a whole array of British stalwarts - Jonathon Pryce, Pauline Collins and Phil Davis among them - and a real delight from Jerome Holder as the young apprentice. An under-appreciated gem for a summer Friday night.









2017 - Dir.:  Martin McDonagh - HD Digital presentation - USA.

“Martin McDonagh’s fiercely written, stabbingly pleasurable tragicomedy stars a magnificent Frances McDormand; watching it is like having your funny bone struck repeatedly, expertly and very much too hard by a karate super-black-belt capable of bringing a rhino to its knees with a single punch behind the ear. It is a film about vengeance, violence and the acceptance of death, combining subtlety and unsubtlety, and moreover wrongfooting you as to what and whom it is centrally about.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Mildred Hayes’ daughter has been murdered. Weeks pass by and the investigation has gone nowhere. Mildred decides to move things on by hiring three billboards to goad the police into action… but that’s not all she does. This is a comedy, very black, very brutal but funny… only sometimes it hurts when you laugh!
