ANNIE HALL VINCERE PSYCHO WHATEVER WORKS
Welcome to our ‘The Beano’-style ‘Bumper’ almost-Summer Double Issue!
A few weeks ago, some of the ‘twittering’ japesters (I know, I know, it’s called ‘tweeting’!) in the ofﬁce decided it would be a good idea to post
a quote from me by way of an April Fool, something to the effect that we were fed up showing ‘arthouse’ cinema to a handful of people and were
going to adopt a more commercial programme, you know, along the lines of your local multiplex. We were mightily impressed by the number of
subsequent commentators who KNEW we were kidding (a vote of conﬁdence in our commitment to the cause if ever I heard one) but it got us
thinking... what if there were no Filmhouse in Edinburgh? Notwithstanding I’d have no job, how much of the shine of living in our magniﬁcent city
would be taken off? For me, an awful lot I’d have to say. Filmhouse has been a huge part of my life since I arrived in Edinburgh and practically all my
formative viewing happened here. I know many of you out there feel the same – I’m getting all emotional now – and you should know, our very
existence is ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON YOU! So keep coming, bring your friends, expand your cinematic horizons, use us, it’s what we’re here
for. And if you do, there’s every chance Filmhouse will be around for quite some time yet!
And so to the ﬁlms... Vincere is Marco Bellocchio’s completely stunning telling of a story that only surfaced fairly recently, that of the existence of
a former wife (Ida Dalser, beautifully played by Giovanna Mezzogiorno) and child that ‘Il Duce’ Mussolini (a powerhouse performance from Filippo
Timi) denied an�
nation in turbulent times. Elia Suleiman (Divine Intervention) returns to our screens with The Time That Remains, his sweeping, comic, intensely
moving account of 60 years in the life of a Palestinian family (his) in Israel. It’s ofﬁcial, Woody Allen really is back on top form, what with last year’s
Vicky Cristina Barcelona and now, in a return to his native New York, the very funny and downright uplifting Whatever Works, starring Larry David,
the nigh-perfect mouthpiece for some of Woody’s best one-liners in many a year. To celebrate, we’ve put together a season of arguably his 16
best ﬁlms we have entitled Woody Allen: An Introspective (clever, eh?). [And was it your idea Rod? No, I didn’t think so. It was thought up by one
of our marvellous Facebook followers. - Ed.]
I’m not just being lazy, as there really are too many other ﬁlms to mention, but sufﬁce to say Werner Herzog, Bill Hicks, Mozart, Chris Morris,
Agnès Varda, Tilda, the Himalayas, the Black Death, Hitchcock, the Rape of Nanking, Ludwig van, Jack Cardiff, Kurt Wallander, James Mason,
(a fully restored) Rashomon and our Cinema 2 (also restored!) all ﬁgure in it somewhere. Turn the page to ﬁnd out exactly how...
There’s also the small matter of our better-looking [? - Ed.] older sister, the Edinburgh International Film Festival. I took a sneak look at their
programme when they’d all gone home (strictly 9-5 that lot) and, between me and thee, it’s looking very good indeed!

On 2 July 2010, Filmhouse is ofﬁcially 25 years old!
HRH the Duke of Edinburgh ofﬁcially opened the
building on the completion of the ﬁnal phase of the
project, which made Filmhouse a two screen cinema
with Cafe/Bar (our third screen was opened in May
1997). Some of you may recall attending Filmhouse
in varying states of realisation prior to this date, but
the 25th anniversary of the ofﬁcial completion of
the project that had begun way back in 1979 seems
like the strongest date upon which to hang our
celebrations. We have a few other dates we could
call an anniversary (for example the Lothian Road
entrance and the opening of Cinema One happened
on 15 February 1982), though the exact date of
the ﬁrst screening here at Lothian Road remains
shrouded in the haar of time...
As part of the celebrations, we’re putting together
a list of 25 seminal ‘Filmhouse’ ﬁlms, one a year
for each of the 25. We’re making the ﬁnal touches
to that list as we speak and will publish it on our
website on 7 May, and what we’d like from you is
for you to take a look at that list, and let us know
what you think we’ve missed out. The ﬁlm you think
should be on the list but isn’t. It could be the ﬁlm you
remember seeing here most fondly, or one you think
simply deserves a place on our list, and though we
have stuck to ﬁlms released within the last 25 years
don’t feel you have to constrain yourselves in such a
manner. Anything from the entire history of cinema,
that you have loved seeing here, is what we’re
looking for, and we’ll screen the most-mentioned
ﬁlm at a special event in late July. The voting will be
open from 7 May (the day after that other election)
to 4 June inclusive, and we very much look forward
to receiving your suggestions.
We would love it also if you have any special
(concise!) memories of any of the ﬁlms on our list,
send them in and we’ll include the best of them
in the special 25th Anniversary programme we’re
planning for July.
P.S. In the meantime, we’re closing Cinema Two for a
week from Monday 17 May for a full refurbishment.
