SYNPOSIS:

THE DUKE is the true story of Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history.

Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly – he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge – Kempton had spun a web of lies. The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage – how and why he used the Duke to achieve that is a wonderfully uplifting tale.

Charlie Chaplin retrospective: the man, the myth, the moustache!

Charlie Chaplin, one of cinema’s most iconic figures returns to the big screen with stunning restorations of his work.

2021 marks the 100th anniversary of Chaplin’s ground-breaking The Kid, providing an ideal launchpad for a season of Chaplin’s magical storytelling back on the big screen. All the Charlie Chaplin classics in one place over 10 months at Dendy!

Monsieur Verdoux

Inspired by notorious French serial killer Landru, Henri Verdoux lures wealthy women by promising them sweet happy-everafters. After the wedding bells chime, however, he murders them for their fortunes. In this particularly dark comedy, Chaplin questions our perception of evil: isn’t this refined criminal a mere amateur compared to weapons suppliers and dictators? We stand ready to condemn a murderer, but when war victims are counted in millions, we celebrate a hero!

The Godfather Trilogy

I have 1 double pass to each film as part of the THE GODFATHER TRILOGY 50th ANNIVERSARY RESTORATION, at Dendy Cinemas Brisbane

4) Let me know: “What is your favourite The Godfather quote?”

Put your answer on Twitter, Instagram (with the hashtag #GodfatheratDendy, tagging @reviewbrisbane), Facebook, or on our website!

SYNOPSIS:

Dendy Cinemas is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola’s Academy Award-winning masterwork, The Godfather.

The entire ‘The Godfather’ trilogy will play over these dates:
The Godfather – Part I: Feb 25th and Sun Feb 27th
The Godfather – Part II: Mar 4th and Mar 6th
The Godfather – Part III: Coda – The Death of Michael Corleone: Mar 11th and Mar 13th

Every effort was made to create the finest possible presentation for today’s audiences who can watch the films using technology that has advanced dramatically since 2007 when the last restoration was completed. Using that work as a blueprint, thousands of hours were spent to ensure that every frame was evaluated to create the most pristine presentation while remaining true to the original look and feel of the films.

Coppola’s masterful film adaptation of Mario Puzo’s novel chronicles the rise and fall of the Corleone family and the film trilogy is rightfully viewed as one of the greatest in cinematic history. In preparation for the 50th anniversary of the first film’s original release on March 24, 1972, a painstaking restoration of all three films was taken over the course of three years.

RESTORATION DETAILS
Over 300 cartons of film were scrutinized to find the best possible resolution for every frame of all three films. Over 4,000 hours were spent repairing film stains, tears, and other anomalies in the negatives.
Over 1,000 hours were spent on rigorous colour correction to ensure the high dynamic range tools were respectful of the original vision of Coppola and cinematographer Gordon Willis.

In addition to the 5.1 audio approved by Walter Murch in 2007, the original mono tracks on The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II have been restored.

All work was overseen by Coppola.

Tickets for all three screenings can be purchased at the box office or online at dendy.com.au

Drive My Car

In Cinemas FEBRUARY 10

SYNOPSIS:

Yusuke Kafuku, a stage actor and director, still unable, after two years, to cope with the loss of his beloved wife, accepts to direct Uncle Vanja at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There he meets Misaki, an introverted young woman, appointed to drive his car. In between rides, secrets from the past and heartfelt confessions will be unveiled. As they spend time together, Kafuku confronts the mystery of his wife that quietly haunts him.

REVIEW:

If you are a fan of little films that seem quiet on the surface but deep down have jarring tremors of emotions, then this 3 hour art-house gem from Japanese writer-director Ryusuke Hamaguchi is a must-see. The director, along with co-writer Takamasa Oe, adapted the script from the short story by Haruki Murakami, part of his “Men Without Women” collection. The story revolves around Russian playwright Anton Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya”.

In what may be the longest prologue in cinematic history, the opening credits finally roll about 35-40 minutes in. But that first segment is absolutely terrific. Probably the most complexed drama this year. First it was an unique exploration of love and loss from the weird relationship between the stage director and his driver. Then it’s an ambitious celebration of life where the our troubled director found his will to live. In between was the beautiful cinematography and score that created the calm and immersive atmosphere whenever the car’s wheels turns.

This movie is incredibly patient. The dialogues of the stage play was slowly revealed. The relationship between the two main characters didn’t really kick in until halfway through. For awhile I thought this movie was going nowhere. However, when the big character change hit, my mind was blown away. It brought so much meaning to the bizarre stories and conversations from the last three hours.

Overall, a layered and gorgeous drama that can be too complexed for me at times.
