TRISKEL RECOMMENDS 25 – 31 MAY - PASSION: A BRIAN DE PALMA THRILLER

Wednesday 27th May 2020 - posted by Eric_Cotenas

Welcome to the sixth edition of ‘Triskel Recommends’, a weekly series in which we recommend films available to stream online.

With Triskel Arts Centre unable to screen movies as a collective experience and people staying at home in self-isolation, we’ve decided to highlight quality films which we think our patrons would enjoy.

Each week we mix movies to rent and movies which are free to view, international and national cinema, all kinds of genres (shorts, documentaries, experimental, B-movies, foreign language), and links to streaming sites and content that we will curate ourselves.

This week, we are highlighting Passion (2012), the much-maligned Brian De Palma thriller that received its one and only ever Irish theatrical screening at Triskel Arts Centre back in July 2013. De Palma has always been a decisive figure in American cinema, his overtly stylised and cinematic approach to filmmaking (as well as his depictions of violence and sexuality) has confounded many critics and caused much controversy. With Passion, even his most strident supporters have been divided, but those willing to indulge in the unconventional approach to filmmaking and storytelling may find this to be a hidden gem, an intentionally ripe melodrama reminiscent of classic Hollywood pictures from the 1940s and ’50s filtered through De Palma’s unique approach to the subject matter.

Around the time of the Passion screening at Triskel, Chris O'Neill wrote an essay entitled ‘Passion: A Viewers’ Guide’, which was published in the much-missed Experimental Conversations, an online publication run by Cork Film Centre. I have republished that essay below, but please view the film before reading.

Passion is currently available to view on MUBI UK & Ireland, who have very generously given Triskel Cinema members a free 90-day subscription to their services. Cinema members should check their inboxes for the link to take advantage of this offer. Not already a member? Then sign up here. We’re extending our membership so you’ll now get 15 months for just €15.

TRISKEL RECOMMENDS THE EARLY FILMS OF TOBE HOOPER MAY 18-24

Monday 18th May 2020 - posted by Eric_Cotenas

The Triskel Arts Centre in association with Watchmaker Films and Louis Black Productions is making available for online streaming THE EARLY FILMS OF TOBE HOOPER, giving an "insight into the earliest work of the legendary horror film director behind such major classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and Poltergeist (1982)" with Hooper's first feature film Eggshells (1971) and two shorts The Heisters (1964) and Down Friday Street (1966) available for the next seven days.

Available worldwide, the €5.00 rental package includes the films and the following bonus material:
- audio commentary on Eggshells with director Tobe Hooper in conversation with restoration co-producer Louis Black
- an audio recording made in 2018 when Mark Rance of Watchmaker Films (the company behind the restoration of Eggshells) took part in a Q&A following the Irish Premiere of the film at Triskel Arts Centre.

Upon placing your order, you will receive an email with a weblink and passwords to access the films. Although this edition of ‘Triskel Recommends’ ends on Sunday May 24th, the seven day rental access will be valid from the day that you make the purchase even if that extends beyond the 24th.


The database contains 54981 entries with 161335 releases compared.
