LAB Classics: Serpico (4K Restoration)

Celebrating its 50th anniversary with a brand-new 4K restoration, we are proud to finally screen Sidley Lumet’s 1973 classic Serpico. Lumet’s drama, starring a hipster-looking Al Pacino at the height of his powers, portrays the real-life struggle of an honest New York City cop against a corrupt system.

Previously Unreleased: Infinity Pool

Brandon Cronenberg, son of body horror maestro David Cronenberg, has been steadily carving out his own, equally disturbing, body of work with thought-provoking genre movies like Possessor and Antiviral. For the longest time, it seemed like his newest sci-fi horror Infinity Pool wasn’t going to be released in the Netherlands at all, but we’re very happy to present it here now.

International Cinema: Upon Entry

We continue with our series of International Cinema – where we offer the best foreign movies with English subtitles. Alejandro Rojas and Juan Sebastián Vásquez present Upon Entry not so much as a damning condemnation of the U.S. immigration system as much as it is a deep exploration of psychology, authority, and how easily people in positions of power can abuse it.

International Cinema: Unicorn Wars

We continue with our series of International Cinema – where we offer the best foreign movies with English subtitles. With his second feature-length film, Galician filmmaker Alberto Vázquez delivers a work which might look like a film for children, but which certainly isn’t suitable for them

Scorsese Selected

Widely regarded as one of the most influential directors of our time, Martin Scorsese made some of the most exciting cinema classics of the past fifty years. Coinciding with the release of his new film Killers Of The Flower Moon we, finally, present a selection of some of his most acclaimed and beloved films.

The Diary As Feminist Genre: The Films Of Marleen Gorris

In 1996 the Dutch filmmaker Marleen Gorris was the first woman to win an Oscar as a director for her film Antonia’s Line (1995). From her first film A Question of Silence (1982) onwards she prioritized stories and perspectives of women under the suffocating and sometimes absurd conditions of patriarchy. Forty years later, her films still resonate with the desires and conditions of the women’s movement today: to push the limits of women’s roles on the big screen and in real life. 

Au Revoir Jean-Luc Godard

Last year one of the most idiosyncratic directors of the French New Wave passed away at the age of 91. Coinciding with the 4K restoration re-release of his masterpiece Le Mépris, we are proud to bring back our retrospective honoring the iconic Jean-Luc Godard, the most playful enfant terrible of sixties French cinema, focussing on some of his most influential films like À Bout De Souffle,  Une Femme Est Une Femme and Pierrot Le Fou.
