A Week In Film #163: Un Joyeux Noël…

The Arbor
Documentary about Rita, Sue And Bob Too scripter Andrea Dunbar, weaving together original fly-on-the-wall footage of the working class playwright with later talking heads interviews of family members and scenes from her play about her neighbourhood, Bradford’s Buttershaw estate, acted out there. Moving, depressing.

The Murder Of Fred Hampton
Powerful 1971 documentary about the charismatic Black Panther Party for Self Defense leader, who was executed by the FBI.

Get Him To The Greek
Stupid spin-off from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, with Russell Brand revisiting his pharmaceutically-charged British rock star character. Enjoyed it, mind.
