Transcript SEACON '79 FILM NOTES As you will see from the programme, we are showing films almost continually from 10.00am to 4.00am throughout the convention -- usually in the Clarence Room, but with special items in Hall 1. The films below are those we intend to show assuming that Securicor, the Post Office, Customs & Excise and the staff of the distribution departments realize that we do actually want the films to arrive when ordered. Any unavoidable changes in the film programme will be announced as early and as widely as possible. The Feature films will not start before their appointed times. The lengths of these films are given below, so that hardened movie fans can arrange suitable breaks. The short films listed will be used to fill gaps but no advance notice can be given of when particular shorts will be shown. The Clarence Room is a (\|0 SMOKING area, Please try and move about in the room so as to minimize disturbance to the audience, unless they are more drunk than you. The 16mm projectors in this room and the 35mm projectors in Hall 1 are expensive and have a high centre of gravity. Please lurch elsewhere. We would like to thank the following organizations for their help in loaning films, stills, props and arranging personal appearances: Twentieth Century Fox, Star Wars Corporation, Warners, United Artists, Cinema International Corporation, EMI, Columbia, Ceskoslovensky Filmexport, BBC, Thames Television, British Film Institute and Euston Films. Special thanks to John Baxter and Philip Strick for their help. THE FILMS LISTED BELOW ARE IN ORDER OF SCREENING Film Programme/Notes by John Brosnan & Roy Kettle. THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (Nicholas Roeg, 1976) Roeg's treatment of Walter Tevis's straightforward novel is needlessly confusing and often pretentious, but remains a brilliant achievement, particularly on a purely visual level. David Bowie is physically perfect as the ethereal alien who comes to Earth to obtain help for his dying world but is destroyed in the process - a victim of high-intensity culture-shock. Script by Roeg and Paul Mayersberg; also stars Candy Clark, Buck Henry and Rip Torn (140 mins) BRIGHT SEGMENT A French made-for-TV film based on Theodore Sturgeon's famous short story. Reportedly a tour de force. Sturgeon himself will be presenting the film, prefacing and following it with readings from the story. PHASE IV (Saul Bass, 1974) Nigel Davenport tries to outwit a number oi ants being influenced by an alien intelligence in this beautifully photographed movie. Mayo Simon's script has some serious flaws and the film wasn't helped by the distributors cutting off the spectacular, surreal montage at the end of the film which showed what life would be like on the "new" Earth. SUPERMAN (Richard Donner, 1978) You'll believe a man can make millions of dollars. Superman-the-Movie is big and impressive but perhaps disappointing to comics fans - the first third wasn't the Krypton we knew. However, Christopher Reeve is knockout as the adult Kent/ Superman and only the usually-reliable Gene Hackman as a cast-off Batman villain fails. Jolly good special effects from, amongst others, Derek Meddings. Written at various times by Mario Puzo (of Godfather fame), David Newman, Leslie Newman and Robert Benton. Hugo nominee. (143 mins) SHIVERS (David Cronenberg, 1974) (Also known as The Parasite Murders and They Came From Within ('. )) The ultimate bad taste movie - it starts with a mad scientist strangling a young girl, cutting her open with a scalpel, pouring acid into her and then cutting his throat with the same scalpel. And that's only for starters. The culprits are nasty little slug-like creatures that are transmitted from person to person during oral contact, turning their victims into raving sex-maniacs. They slowly spread through a large apartment building and everyone starts behaving as if they're at a science fiction convention. Not for the squeamish or people without a sense of black humour. Written by David Cronenberg. (87mins) 16.
