  1. Boiling Point and the one-take film

    The adrenaline-inducing film Boiling Point is out in cinemas and online. Shot in a single take on a single night at a London restaurant, the movie has inspired Ellen and Mark to take a closer look at one-shot films and those that appear to be. What does the one-shot do for a movie? Is it any more than showing off?

    Boiling Point stars Stephen Graham as an under-pressure chef whose life is unravelling over a busy night in the restaurant. Ellen talks to director Philip Barantini, himself a former chef, about his decision to film the feature as a “oner” and the pressures that caused.

    On the front page of the script for 1917 Sam Mendes had written, "This is envisioned as a single shot,". Mark speaks to legendary cinematographer Roger Deakin about how he realised the director’s vision for the First World War epic.

    And, fresh from her victory at the British Independent Film Awards, Boiling Point star Vinette Robinson shares what she’s been watching in Viewing Notes.

  2. Hoaxes, fakes and pranks

    Ellen E Jones and Mark Kermode explore hoaxes, fakes and pranks on screen for April Fool’s Day.

    Mark is joined by documentarian Morgan Neville and Anna Bogutskaya for a deep dive into Orson Welles’ 1973 docudrama about forgers and fakery, F for Fake.

    And Ellen looks back at small screen hoaxes, from the 1970s sci-fi mockumentary Alternative 3 to the terrifying BBC1 Halloween drama Ghostwatch via a sprinkling of Noel’s House Party, with the help of writers David Ambrose and Mark Gatiss.

    Also, critic and filmmaker Mark Cousins shares his Viewing Notes.

  4. Philosophers Zone - 2 April 2011 - At the movies with Gilles Deleuze (part 2)

    This week, The Philosopher’s Zone goes to the movies. In the second of two programs devoted to the great French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, we examine what he had to say about cinema. He was one of the first philosophers to turn their attention to films and he saw film as a philosophical medium. But what did that mean and why, in his view, did film become more philosophical after World War II?

    Remember the last time you saw a foreign language film? You sat down in the dark, popcorn in hand, and for the next two hours you read all those subtitles. But even if you’ve seen a lot of subtitled movies, you’ve probably never thought of who wrote those fleeting words on the screen?
