Cosi Fan Tutte

I’m an opera fan. There, I said it. I’m a fan that doesn’t want to get too close though, too intimate with the music, preferring it to wash over me in a melancholic wave or thundering storm. From the days of poring over an unmarked 42-CD box set of classical music belonging to my dad, to compiling *shudder* ‘chill-out’ playlists for particularly heavy Sundays, classical music and opera have always been in the background, with Mozart one its least celebrated parts it must be said. And then came Amadeus. Typically modern to get into classical music with a movie, Amadeus was the story of Mozart as the brilliant youth who became one of the world’s first rock stars. He is regarded as the best because, well, he was one. So let the voices reverberate around Grand Canal Square, close your eyes, and let the music wash over you. / Hugh Torpey

Death Row Cowboy

Opening with a 911 call in which 18 year old Carl Brant explains how he killed his mother and a cop you know that this isn’t going to be Vernon God Little. Five years later, the cop’s widow Hillary wants answers and tries to get them by passing letters to him through a prison guard as he awaits his execution, lingering on death row. Given that the concept of the death penalty, and the cult around death row is so powerfully affecting, it is impossible to be unmoved by this piece. There is a pathos in the air from the off, particularly from Gerard Byrne who gives a compelling performance as he is dragged away to die. Death Row Cowboy is a thought provoking piece that will bring a lump to the throat, an ache to the heart, and leave you hoping you never get framed by the fuzz. / Frances Winston

Lilting

Attempting to diagnose the condition whereby I can fall asleep watching anything on the big screen, is something I'm really hesitant in doing. We're talking comedy or crime, cinema or couch, and always two cups of coffee deep. Having made it through the entirety of Lilting from fits of extended laughter, to slobbering all over my neighbour in a minute flat, I think I've found the cure. The coming out story is one that most of us are pretty familiar with, or at least we know someone who vaguely remembers it firsthand, but Lilting is as engaging as it is endearing despite the unavoidable cliches. Maybe it's the queer language for an LGBT movie, the unusual subject matter, or just Ben Whishaw. Regardless, I can't wait to cringecrylaugh through this again. / Connor Clarke
