Here’s what’s coming to BFI Player’s subscription service in August 2022:
Bull – 1st August
After a 10-year absence, former gang enforcer Bull (Neil Maskell) returns to his old haunts to find his missing son and seek revenge on those who double-crossed him and left him for dead. Painful secrets from the past will soon be revealed and like a man possessed, Bull will stop at nothing to get back at those who must atone for their sins. Read our full review – and read our interview with star Neil Maskell and director Paul Andrew Williams.
Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne (1945) – 8th August
Robert Bresson’s tale of sexual intrigue, rivalry and revenge among Parisian socialites, with glittering dialogue by Jean Cocteau and a magnificent performance by Maria Casares.
The Trial of Joan of Arc (1962) – 8th August
The story of Joan of Arc’s trial and conviction is powerfully retold in Robert Bresson’s minimalist masterpiece. A transcendent and moving evocation of human suffering and spiritual liberation, The Trial of Joan of Arc remains a powerful exploration of religious virtue with one of cinema’s most haunting and poignant finales.
