THE GREY
2012, Open Road Films, 117 min, USA, Dir: Joe Carnahan

In this frostbitten thriller from director Joe Carnahan, Liam Neeson leads an unruly group of oil-rig roughnecks when their plane crashes in the remote Alaskan wilderness. Battling mortal injuries and merciless weather, the survivors have only a few days to escape the icy elements - and a vicious pack of rogue wolves on the hunt - before their time runs out. With Dermot Mulroney and Frank Grillo.


THE CAMERAMAN
1928, Warner Bros., 69 min, USA, Dir: Buster Keaton

Buster has a huge crush on Sally, an adorable office worker for MGM Newsreels. Buster gives up his tintyping job and gets himself a camera, with a new plan to catch the attention of both Sally and MGM. The novice cameraman is in the right place at the right time to capture on film a Tong war smack in the middle of Chinatown - and must narrowly escape plenty of disasters, Buster-style! In a clever meta-comment on impressing the studios, this delightful comedy was originally an MGM production.
