The Luxembourg City Film Festival reaches its half way point, and there are still plenty of cracking good films to watch.
7 days in to the Luxembourg City Film Festival and audiences have enjoyed films ranging from a stylish Greek thriller to an epic Colombian drug saga and a documentary about an Australian ghost hunter.
But there are still some great films on the programme, starting with this evening’s screening of terrifyingly claustrophobic Danish thriller “Cutterhead” in which a journalist becomes trapped underground when reporting on works to build the Copenhagen subway. Then there is Delano’s pick of the day, “Ray & Liz” (which is also being screened on Wednesday afternoon).
Also on Wednesday there is a chance to watch Luxembourg co-production “Flatland” (photo), a feminist thriller set in South Africa. Thursday evening’s Canadian drama “Firecrackers” is in a similar vein, about two young women seeking to escape a small town. And there is Willem Defoe starring as Vincent van Gogh in “At Eternity’s Gate”.
The festival closes with a bang at the weekend with a screening at Saturday’s awards ceremony of acclaimed Luxembourg co-production, the Israeli satire “Tel Aviv on Fire”. And on Sunday the festival celebrates the international premier of Harmony Korine’s “The Beach Bum” starring Matthew McConaughey.
