Six out of ten! That was my response to the list of films served up by Filmhouse programmer Rod White as part of his 10 from 09 season (Sat 9 January – Thurs 4 February) which starts in a few days at the cinema.
White has picked his favourite films from 2009 and used his not insubstantial sway to have them all screened for our enjoyment over the coming weeks. I’ve been lucky to see six of them and could be tempted to see at least one more – Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno – as part of this season.
That list in full:
- Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno
- In the City of Sylvia
- An Education
- Let the Right One In
- Katalin Varga
- The White Ribbon
- Fish Tank
- The Class
- Star Trek
Out them all I would recommend Let the Right One In as unmissable, with Moon, Fish Tank and Star Trek close behind.
This is a great idea for a way to package up some high quality films and here’s hoping it becomes an annual event. As an aside, White also mentions in his introduction to the new programme that if you think he’s missing something essential you can email your thoughts to him and they might screen the best one!
