Silent Running

Rarely does a film reinvent itself as a cult classic due to one film critic, but Mark Kermode’s championing of Silent Running on his podcast over the years has raised it above the cacophony of 70s sci-fi films with dodgy sets, even dodgier jumpsuits and overly quaffed hair. Environmentally prescient, the film follows Bruce Dern’s botanist character and his battle with his fellow astronauts and bosses down on earth to preserve the last remaining forest and plant life, now only contained in the space ships they are responsible for. Ordered to destroy the forest so the ships can be used for commercial use, Dern has to weigh human life against their precious cargo. With his robot companions – some of the most endearing you’ll see on celluloid – in tow, the galaxy drifts by as the last forests die. All in all, the quaffed one was right. / Hugh Torpey

Collected Stories

One of the things I most vehemently criticise about Dublin's theatre landscape (which is an oasis of new, exciting writing, swollen with potential), is its tendency to neglect established plays which have been performed to acclaim in London or New York, your Jumpys, August Osage Countys, or That Faces. It's refreshing, therefore, to see an Irish company unintimidated by Pulitzer recipient Donald Margulies' Collected Stories. The act of writing is non-present in this play about the art of writing - which, if Margulies is to be believed, is about listening and observance. The relationship of mentor and teacher is aptly observed in this touching production, which rolls along, the characters growing and changing, from guru to student, through to equals, and right back again. / Kate Coleman

Landmarked

If you ask an Irish person for directions the landmarks they use will be pubs. So the adage goes but this is changing as art culture and appreciation levels out, making artwork more accessible. Landmarked explores the notion of what these markers are while questioning the purpose of guerrilla art in Dublin's public spaces. More than showcasing the colours & shapes that are normally etched on our city's walls, this exhibit elevates street art & the confines of a gallery space make these works no less impressive. Each piece creates its own frame, allowing the space within the studio to dictate their position. Explosive portraits adorn the walls capturing vivid movement & raw emotion. This show could be the catalyst that allows us examine our public spaces for what they could be; tapestries of urban life & design. / Laura Hayley Kavanagh

Two Days, One Night

The premise of Two Days, One Night is deceptively simple: a woman returning to work after a prolonged period of sick leave must convince her colleagues to forego their €1,000 bonuses so she can keep her factory job. Starring Marion Cotillard as Sandra, a woman struggling with depression who must summon every molecule of strength to hustle and plead with her co-workers to sympathise with her plight, it's anything but simple. Instead, it's an achingly humane and involving character study that explores, among other things, life on the margins and self-worth. As Sandra, Cotillard is a marvel - quietly devastating, but eminently believable. Over the course of two days, she experiences little triumphs and extreme heartbreak, and the viewer is with her every step of the way. Tender and affecting, it's one to seek out. / Amy O'Connor
