This Easter weekend, two years on from the audacious robbery which inspired it, The Hatton Garden Job is released. The bold faced cheek of this crime captured the nation’s collective imaginations. Primarily because 4/5ths of the criminal gang behind the caper ought to have been at home with a pipe and slippers. Ronnie Thompson’s partially true, fancifully embellished, feature continues our great British tradition of championing the underdog. Even when those underdogs are being very naughty indeed!
Pitched as Oap’s 11 The Hatton Garden Job shines a light on the faces and places of a vanishing London. With that ‘one last shot’ theme lending the comic caper a poignancy closer to The Full Monty or Brassed off. Deep beneath the streets of Hatton Garden, we discussed those parallels with director Ronnie Thompson and the film’s star Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia). The interview took place in »

Next month will mark the return of New York City’s Quad Cinema, a theater reshaped and rebranded as a proper theater via the resources of Charles S. Cohen, head of the distribution outfit Cohen Media Group. While we got a few hints of the line-up during the initial announcement, they’ve now unveiled their first full repertory calendar, running from April 14th through May 4th, and it’s an embarassment of cinematic riches.
Including the previously revealed Lina Wertmüller retrospective, one inventive series that catches our eye is First Encounters, in which an artist will get to experience a film they’ve always wanted to see, but never have, and in which you’re invited to take part. The first match-ups in the series include Kenneth Lonergan‘s first viewing Edward Yang‘s Yi Yi, Noah Baumbach‘s first viewing of Withnail and I, John Turturro‘s first viewing of Pather Panchali, »

Back in 2015, Britain witnessed a robbery that could have been straight out of the movies. It was a throwback crime to the days of the Great Train Robbery of 1963, a crime which made the likes of Buster Edwards and Ronnie Biggs household names. It was only a matter of time before this new story was adapted for the big screen and The Hatton Garden Job is just that film.
