White Wall Cinema Presents – The Secret Movie Club : The Instant Classic

White Wall Cinema presents
FRIDAY MARCH 11TH
The Secret Movie Club
Our “Secret Movie Club” project takes a movie you most likely haven’t seen before (but will instantly love) and keeps the identity of the movie a secret, only revealing which film you are watching when the opening credits roll. The aim is to provide you with a brilliant forgotten or overlooked gem from cinema’s past or present. Every time we do these events we get such phenomenal feedback from you guys. It’s incredibly rewarding to have people say to us they had never even heard of the movie we screened for them, but that it is now instantly among their favourites!
The Instant Classic
For our first mystery movie of 2022 we visit the south central portion of the United States in a film that both authentically portrays the magnificent vistas and social landscape of the region but also raises the dramatic stakes to create a beautifully paced thriller packed with brilliant character studies and clever plotting, making this modern overlooked gem have both the appeal of current cinema and also somehow the feel of a classic. Gripping, intelligently written, and often tense, this film boasts a truly great late period performance from a cult figure of Hollywood cinema as well as an overlooked performance from one of the box office’s current crop, sound tracked with a score from a well known alternative favourite. With echoes of filmmaker’s such as Howard Hawks and The Coen Brothers, this mystery film was nominated for a slew of awards including Oscars, Baftas and Golden Globes, and was gleefully received by critics, currently holding a score only a few digits shy of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
