“Musician-turned-director John Maclean strikes gold with this haunting mix of genres in the old west… From the opening moments, our antiheroes are accompanied by a gently waltzing three-step, Jed Kurzel and the London Contemporary Orchestra turning their hoofbeats into a lilting dance.” ★★★★ (The Guardian)

There Will Be Blood: Live

There Will Be Blood: Live (2014)

Director: PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON
Composer: JONNY GREENWOOD
Distributor: PARK CIRCUS

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Academy Award-winning film accompanied by a live orchestral performance of Jonny Greenwood’s score. The 5-star reviewed, sell-out production was conceived by the LCO and promoted by the Roundhouse, which staged the first performance in August 2014.

The score features passages from Greenwood’s compositions Popcorn Superhet Receiver and Bodysong, as well as works by Arvo Pärt and Brahms. These pieces have been collated into one performance edition, showing the film in a striking new light. Jonny Greenwood has played the ondes Martenot part for all performances to date.

“Sparse and at times just plain peculiar – but in a brilliantly original way. It’s magnificent.” ★★★★★ (The Independent)

“…the effect was superb… a singular audio-visual journey into a heart of darkness.” ★★★★ (The Times)

Next performance: January 30th 2017 – Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London

Metropolis

Metropolis: Live (1927 / 2010 restored ver.)

Director: FRITZ LANG
Composer: GOTTFRIED HUPPERTZ
Distributor: EUREKA ENTERTAINMENT

Cult 1927 sci-fi classic Metropolis is a triumph of German Expressionism and remains one of the most influential films ever made. With its depiction of a futuristic cityscape and an alluring female robot, Metropolis is the mother of sci-fi cinema influencing Blade Runner and Star Wars, among countless others. Directed by the legendary Fritz Lang, its jaw-dropping production values, iconic imagery, and modernist grandeur – accompanied live by Huppertz’s original score – remain as powerful as ever.
