Labyrinth

Hello. My name is Labyrinth and I am an 80’s fantasy film. Sure, The Princess Bride and Time Bandits claim the throne, but I am clearly the reigning King of Saturday afternoon television. Jennifer Connelly may have graced the screen with her youthful beauty, but we all know who brought the sexy back, and that was the Thin White Duke in tights and a mullet for God's sake. I gathered John Henson and George Lucas, and made a wall out of black gloved hands seem almost terrifying (I said almost). I have had to fight many a naysayer to my kinship. Fools can’t appreciate my outlandish storyline. Cannot relive their childhood days of imagination, with trees turned into pirate ships and burnt out cars that were castles. Come forth those who like Sarah, can’t exist in a world without magic and fairytales. And please tell Dave to call me back. / Ciara Roche

Bears in Space

Collapsing Horse are gluttons for punishment. They have Pondling, Human Child, and Bears in Space all on at the Project Arts Centre, like the thinking man's Hunger Games. Bears in Space is a rollicking Walter Moers-esque caper, smartly written and expertly narrated by a borderline-egomaniac storyteller. The script owes a lot to The Mighty Boosh (Hen & Chickens/radio show era) in the structure, which helps keep the piece chuckling along, and is directly homaged in its own Rudi van DiSarzio Jungle scene. The lo-fi simplicity of the set and the props add charm to the piece which is fluidly performed by the cast - the choreography as crucial as the accents, or fighting the will to corpse. Collapsing Horse have done it again. Bears in Space is sure to be a stonker of a hit in Edinburgh. / Kate Coleman

screening

Following up from their immersive screening of La Dolce Vita, Cinema Peroni are once again sticking with the King of Italian cinema, and showing Federico Fellini’s autobiographical masterpiece . Almost like watching a live action Vogue shoot, this film oozes style. From Guido’s iconic wayfayers to Claudia Cardinale at her most beautiful, Italian cinema has never looked so good. In an almost Joycean fashion, Guido, a successful director, struggles to gain a grasp on reality as he feigns interest in his current sci-fi project. Instead, he loses himself in dream sequences shot with such cinematic beauty they deserve to be on display at the Museo MACRO. Give this film the respect it deserves and dress to the Italian nines, or scusi, noves, and zoom up in a Vespa with champagne in your bonnet, and a glint in your black-lined eye.

Obvious Child

A lo-fi romantic comedy that just happens to sort of deal with abortion is how I would best describe Obvious Child. Although the crux of the film hinges on the lead character terminating her pregnancy, this isn't polemical nor is it a statement film. Starring Jenny Slate as a Brooklyn comedian confronted with an unwanted pregnancy following an alcohol-fueled one night stand, it's a refreshingly sweet and sassy take on a divisive topic with the humour even verging on scatological at points. (Read: fart jokes, female discharge and more contained within.) Here, abortion isn't presented as a life or death choice, but rather an ordinary decision taken by millions of women each year. It's sensitively handled without being overwrought, witty without being flippant. And isn't that refreshing? / Amy O'Connor

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Mensch: a person of integrity and honour. Add a “super” before that and you start to get close to an approximation of Shep Gordon, the man who launched Alice Cooper’s career and just about invented his whole stage persona. From selling weed to Hendrix and Joplin at the Landmark Motor Hotel (where Joplin tragically died a few years later), to managing Groucho Marx and soul legends Teddy Pendergrass and Luther Vandross, Gordon made a name for himself by making big news of others. Along the way he also invented the concept of the celebrity chef, dated Sharon Stone, and helped raise a late friend’s family after she passed. Mike Myers’ debut feature documentary is a snappily cut and fast paced insight into Gordon’s unbelievable career, brimming with tall tales a plenty, with perhaps a few details a little (purple) hazy at times. / Dave Desmond
