The Shout (1978)


Jerzy Skolimowski's 1978 film, to be shown at this event in September is noteworthy for a number of reasons. It features a three-pronged central cast of John Hurt, Alan Bates and Susannah York. It utilises the North Devon coastline to remarkably eerie effect. It features a couple of extended scenes depicting experimental music composition in action. And... it features a soundtrack by none other than Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford of Genesis, with electronics by Rupert Hine. Imagine, as they say, my delight.

  1. Someday I will tell you of the night I had to drag John Hurt off beating his wife in a bar in Dublin.
