Not getting your art house fix from Netflix? Wish there were more indie films on Amazon Prime? Every week, we round up the new releases on MUBI, a subscription VOD service that hand-picks films from around the world and adds one a day, with each film available to stream or download for a month. (Current titles include Funny Face and Moon.)
Here’s what’s new and coming soon to MUBI UK this week:
Lil’ Quinquin, Episode 3 – Monday 21st September
Bruno Dumont’s French miniseries continues with the third episode (the final part is on the way to MUBI later this month).
Casa de Lava – Tuesday 22nd September
No, this has nothing to do with the Pixar short film. Pedro Costa’s 1994 film – added to coincide with the release of Horse Money – is a volcanic Western set in Cape Verde.
Last Orders – Wednesday 23rd September
Michael Caine, Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren, Ray Winstone and Tom Courtenay together in the same film? Fred Schepisi’s 2000 drama about a group of old mates reuniting in the wake of a mutual friend’s death is worth seeing for its cast alone.
Twenty-Four Eyes – Thursday 24th September
When it comes to Japan, everyone knows Ozu and Kurosawa, but have you seen Keisuke Kinoshita’s work? This 1954 tale provides an inspiring look at one teacher’s commitment to her students.
Pollock – Friday 25th September
Ed Harris’ directorial debut is a portrait of the artist Jackson Pollock, played by Harris himself.
The Great Gatsby – Saturday 26th September
Jack Clayton’s 1974 take on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel – exposing the truth behind the glamorous facade of the wealthy titular figure – may be divisive, but remains a striking watch, not least because of Robert Redford’s starring role.
Lil’ Quinquin, Episode 4 – Monday 28th September
Bruno Dumont’s French miniseries concludes (the previous three parts are already on MUBI). Read our full review.
