Film Weekly is out and about as this year’s BFI London film festival kicks off. Jason Solomons and Xan Brooks preview some of the many cinematic treats on offer. And Jason asks can a remake be better then the original? He talks to young actor Kodi Smit McPhee and director Matt Reeves about Let Me In, a remake, screening at the festival, of the Swedish vampire hit Let The Right One In.
Jason also meets Sophie Fiennes to explore her film Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow, a Kubrick-esque observational documentary about German artist Anselm Kiefer’s expansive installation in southern France.
We review the Facebook film The Social Network, out this week, and we have a pair of tickets to the French writer-director Olivier Assayas’s London festival masterclass for you to win.
