Sunset Song

Sunset Song Terence Davies, director & script based on the novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon Starring: Agyness Deyn (Chris Guthrie), Peter Mullan (John Guthrie), Kevin Guthrie (Ewan Tavendale), Jack Greenless (Will Guthrie), Daniela Nardini (Jean Guthrie), Ian Pirie (Chae Strachan), Douglas Rankine (Long Rob) Let’s cut to the chase. Terence Davies is one of the finest film directors in the world; arguably the greatest auteur in England now. His gorgeously shot evocation of life in Scotland a century ago, Sunset Song, is hanging on for a second week at one downtown Carleton Cinema. You should see it—and bring a friend. Films made in 65mm aren’t intended to be experienced on TV. If you love cinema, join me in making a fuss over this remarkable film. Terence Davies is one of the great Romantics of cinema. He loves the pure power of the visual in a way that few directors do anymore. Throughout Sunset Song, cameraman Michael McDonough circles around, tracks in and, most beautifully, pulls back to dramatise scenes in which Davies’ characters, the Guthries, struggle to make a crumbling world seem safe for a few final moments. Sunset Song opens with a tracking shot of a wheat field in Scotland. Suddenly, a bonnie lass (as the Scots would have said called her) pulls up from the earth where she’d been lying to look at the land around her. The young woman is Chris Guthrie, a bright student who loves literature but is equally drawn to the animals and crops in the farm where she’s grown up. We soon realise that Chris’ life is not an easy one. John,...

The Man Who Knew Infinity

The Man Who Knew InfinityMatthew Brown, director & script Starring: Dev Patel (Srinivas Ramanujan), Jeremy Irons (G.H. Hardy), Toby Jones (John Littlewood), Stephen Fry (Sir Francis Spring), Jeremy Northam (Bertrand Russell), Kevin McNally (Major MacMahon), Devika Bhise (Janaki), Arundhati Nag (Ramanujan’s mother) This is the age of films about mathematics. Think back over the past 20 years and you’ll likely recall with some fondness The Infinity Game, Good Will Hunting, Proof, A Beautiful Mind, Pi, Money Ball and probably a few others like I.Q. with the late great Walter Matthau as Einstein or the Canadian sci-fi brain puzzler Cube. But if you go back to Hollywood’s Golden Age and try to recall a math movie, you’ll soon realise that there’s nary a one. I think it’s the rise of personal computers that made math accessible and interesting to the masses. At any rate, you can now raise significant numbers to produce them. A truism among advocates of documentaries is that truth is stranger than fiction. Certainly that’s the case with the tale of Srinivas Ramanujan, a poor Tamil Hindu Brahmin, who dropped out of two colleges in India, but is now recognised as one of the greatest mathematics geniuses of all time. A complete original, he made important contributions to number theory, continued fractions and mathematical analysis. His journals, which offer over 3900 proofs of his theories are still being studied as if they’re holy texts and his ideas are now being applied to equations surrounding the properties of black holes. Ramanujan was a great enigma. A quiet, passionate Indian living during the height of the British Empire—his birth...
