Double Feature! Theresa Russell In Person!
Co-presented by BAFTA Los Angeles
Discussion between films with actress Theresa Russell.
35 mm!

1980, Park Circus/ITV, 123 min, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

An all-star cast heads this drama about love, possession and obsession. Alex (Art Garfunkel) is an American psychoanalyst and lecturer in Vienna. He meets and falls in love with Milena (Theresa Russell), a young and beautiful American, and the two embark on a passionate affair. She, however, does not wish to be confined to one man, and as she becomes increasingly unfaithful, Alex becomes more and more possessive. The film is told in flashback as Alex sits in a hospital where Milena is being treated for a drug overdose. He recounts the events to the investigating officer (Harvey Keitel), who must decide whether her condition is attempted suicide or something more sinister.

1983, Park Circus/MGM, 130 min, UK/USA, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

Gene Hackman, Mickey Rourke, Rutger Hauer, Joe Pesci and Theresa Russell are the all-star players in this strange tale inspired by the mysterious 1943 murder of Sir Harry Oakes in the Bahamas. A gold prospector (Hackman) strikes it rich in the Canadian wilderness and then moves to a Caribbean island, where he hopes to live in luxury; instead his reward is misery, paranoia and pursuit by killers. Roeg’s underrated drama recalls his earlier THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH as it explores the isolation of vast wealth.
