 /Prison Films 1

Prisons, with their collection of colourful personalities, is bound to create a melting pot of incidents and situations, that makes everyday a challenge and eventful for the staff and inmates. A habitation, where acts of humanity and brutality rub shoulders regularly.

The British gangster movie, tales of no messing geezers, who conduct shady deals whilst evading the long arm of the law. Fellas who like to have a drink with the lads, buy their mothers flowers and have a bit on the side.

The femme fatale is one of the most alluring characters in a novel, comic or film. They are usually beautiful, charming and seductive. She uses her exquisiteness and deep sexual attraction to manipulate men in order to reach her goal. She flaunts, flirts and switches between seductress to damsel in distress at the drop of a hat. More than capable of changing the tyre on her car, but would rather wait by the roadside and let some man run to the rescue and do the dirty work. She looks on, powdering her nose and contemplating what other uses the hapless fool may have.

At ZANI we love films. A film can transport you, enlighten you, entertain you, educate you, move you and really get your mind going. One of those feelings that are pure magic is when you become so engrossed that you never want the film to end and the characters captivate you. You cry with them, feel their joy and you want to ease their pain.

The Oscars in their entire stupid splendor just crashed by again. And I, as usual forced myself to sit and watch the Greek Gods of the 21st century parade across my TV screen.

I suppose it’s a question that anyone who appreciates something gets asked a once in their career of fascination. For me, my turn onto Tony Hancock began with “The Rebel”. I can’t tell you how much the film became a source of inspiration to me over the years. I dare say anyone who has done the commuting lark will connect with that classic scene with Hancock at the beginning of the film.
