While the BFI Southbank’s epic Gothic season trundles on, reaching a Part 4 that includes Cocteau’s eerie Beauty and the Beast, this week another extraordinary classic — Charles Laughton’s Night of the Hunter — is reissued.
Cocteau’s 1946 version of the famous fairytale (re-released in a 4K restoration as part of the British Film Institute’s ongoing Gothic season) is a tour de force that belies the straitened circumstances in which it was made. Shooting not long after the German occupation ended, Cocteau and his collaborators conjure up visual effects that are as startling and as magical as anything achieved in huge-budget Hollywood films.
Wojciech Kilar, a Polish pianist and composer of classical music and scores for more than 130 films, including Roman Polanski’s Oscar-winning “The Pianist” and Francis Ford Coppola’s “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” died Sunday. He was 81.
Celebrating one of the UK’s biggest cultural exports, Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film showcases the allure of gothic film. Opening on 3 January, Gothic combines screenings, talks and DVD releases of one of the most popular and chilling genres.
